Moving Furniture/Moving sofa into flat


Flat entry
Flat entry  

I'm trying to work out whether a sofa with dimensions H87cm x D161cm x W255cm (large sofa in this range will fit into our new flat. We are confident that we can get it in through the front door and up the stairs (both quite wide)however, the front door to the actual flat is only 71cm wide. If this were leading into a big open room I'd image we'd be able to pivot it around the middle of the sofa, however it leads into a narrow corridor (I'm afraid I don't know the exact width but I'd guess around 8cm wider than the door frame at the end of it). I have attached a picture to illustrate what the route from the front door of the flat into the living room is like. If you think the measurements that I've specified won't fit, what height sofa do you think is our maximum?

Thanks very much


I hope I will be able to help :)

To be 100% certain all measurements of the sofa should be less than what the measurements of the clearance, however facts such as shape of the sofa, arms and back that will allow sofa to be tilted and or passed through the door diagonally makes a big difference - in your case they are right on the edge of should pass. But again can not say for sure as it is tight - but possible.

If you like the sofa it will get inside :). My suggestion will be let the delivery company deliver it and try it, hopefully will fit, in case if it did not fit there are companies who can disassemble and assemble it for you. One of the best companies I would suggest is "All Furniture Services" they very professional, they work 24/7 they do not charge extra for same day service and almost always they can send you someone right away. I'm not sure how much exactly they charge but it is very affordable and considering work I would say cheap. Their web: tel.: 1 718-268-2727, 1-646-688-4026
Good luck to you!
