Moving Furniture/Sofa VS doorway


Hi Paul

I'd really appreciate your advice. I have a sofa - dimensions 77x20x35 - and about to move into my new flat. However I am not sure if it will get through the fire door - which is 73 x 32. It feels like quite a tight space too. Do you think it's likely to get through? Or probably not?
Best, Helen

Hi Helen
I believe there is something your not telling me. The height of the sofa is 20 and if thats correct it should be fine UNLESS there is a sharp turn before or after entry. If there is a turn you are correct it probably won't fit. If there is a turn It wouldn't be able to make the it. Peace Love and Happiness
