Moving Furniture/Large sofa through a door


Sofa 98 x 47 x 47
Sofa 98 x 47 x 47  
Hello Paul:
I am thinking of purchasing a sofa with a wood frame that measure 98 x 47 x 47.  My door entrance measures 36 wide x 80 height. Once inside the sofar will go through french doors so it will not be an issue if I can get it into the house.

Hi Michelle
Under neath that skirt has to be legs. Now you'll have to call about weather or not the legs come off. If they don't I'm pretty sure with the right delivery men and the right angle you should not have a problem. See now if the legs don't come off we will now want to know how many attached legs are there. If there are only 4 legs due to the short arms and depth to those arms it can be stood up and manuevered through the doorway.That 47 height is at the center of the sofa if its hollow under that skirt once you pass the first set of legs you should be fine.Make sure you call the store. One thing is constant when building homes. The front door 90% of the time will always be 36 inches. I think you should be fine as long as there is no 5th leg Peace Love and Happiness
