Whether you are moving across town or relocating your family across the country, setting up shop in a new home can be stressful. Cumbersome furniture being fit through narrow entryways can lead to even more headaches. That’s why Cincinnati’s moving assistance experts, Economy Moving & Storage, break down how to move a couch through a door in four easy steps.
Measure – Start by measuring the dimensions of the sofa, including its length, height, and width. If the legs can be removed, take them off before measuring and reattach after the job is completed. You will also need to thoroughly measure the dimensions of the opening. If the height of your couch’s back is longer than the door’s width, then the width of the sofa will need to be narrower than the door’s width for an easy entry.
Positioning – Stand the couch on one end where the feet are and position the opposite end to the doorway. With somebody's assistance, angle the couch so that the back and the bottom form a V. If you’re behind the sofa and pushing it through the entryway, observe the back and the bottom of the couch to ensure it’s not scraping against anything.
Angle – Have a friend stand on the inside and another person positioned on the outside and angle the sofa by gently sliding its seat through the door, letting the couch curl around the frame.
Other Tips – Always remove the legs if you can. Take off the cushions to rid yourself of excess weight. Ensure that you have enough hands on deck to help.
