Hi Guys

Can anyone solve my problem ?
I can't fit my sofa through the front door so has anyone else had problems like this? How did you resolve it?
I'm on the 2nd floor. Any ideas?

Will it go through the window? If you've got wooden windows it may involve a bit of carpentry!

Is the sofa on the way in or on the way out? (dont have any suggestions, just curious)

eBay & buy a new one. Not helpful, sorry!

(Are you trying to do it yourself, or have you got delivery men there to help? A good delivery man will get something through a door that looks totally impossible.)

Hi everyone

It needs to go through a window on the 2nd flr . We will take the window out so the sofa can fit through (already measured) but can't find anyone that has a lift. I rang HSS they have lift and shift department but can't guarantee the safety of the sofa once up to window level. Weird!!

Thanks Mapmaker for the suggestion I did actually look! believe or not !! Didn't see anything to my taste!!!!!

If it's a close fit, just taking off the front door and removing the door frame might do it.

Sorry, already thought of that. Won't work either because of the angle. It's a 3 seater and very nice so don't really want to get rid of it. Difficult hey?

We had that problem once with a bed a few years back. The people who sold it to us (John Lewis, Selfridges or someone) were able to recommend a specialist firm of removers, who came with all the kit. As I remember they were a bunch of Australians, but have no idea of the name.

However it is worth remembering that once you get it in you also have to get it out......

That's what I call forward thinking!

DFS have a service where you buy your settee and they put it together once they have it on your home, cost about 150 but it's great because you know nothing is going to be scratched or damaged in the process of getting it in.
