Step 1: Measuring Your Sofa

When buying a sofa, it’s essential to know that the piece will fit well in the intended space and, even more importantly, that it will be able to get to the intended space. No one wants a sofa that can’t fit through the door.

When buying a sofa, it’s essential to know that the piece will fit well in the intended space and, even more importantly, that it will be able to get to the intended space. No one wants a sofa that can’t fit through the door.

Here are the measurements you’ll need to start off:

Height (H)

Width (W)

Depth (D)

Expert tip: Use paper cut outs of the sofa’s footprint to envision the sofa in its planned space in a more visual way.

Step 2: Delivery of the Sofa

Delivery day has arrived. Here are some tips on how you can prepare for our delivery team and your new addition:

  • — Keep a parking space free for our van (at least 40 feet for clearance)
  • — Ensure that the delivery path from van to entryway is clear of physical items and hazards
  • — Remove any furniture, artwork, rugs or other decor along the delivery path, where possible
  • — Keep pets away from the delivery path to prevent them from being accidentally hurt or otherwise impeding the delivery

Step 3: Getting Through Your Front Door

To calculate whether a sofa will fit through your door, you'll need to know your entryway's width and height. You might need to also note the clearance (distance from the door to the next prominent obstacle e.g. wall, bannister) if the sofa is to enter a particularly tight area. A sofa will not fit through a door if:

  • — The width of the sofa is greater than both the entryway clearance and height
  • — The entryway width is less than all three of these measurements: the sofa’s height, depth and width

Expert Tip: When our delivery team arrives, this is the best time to advise where you would like the sofa to be placed and in which position, whether it’s to be aligned with a TV, a rug or a window

Step 4: Navigating Hallways & Door Frames

Great news. Your sofa can fit through your door but, unless you plan to keep it there, you’ll need to check the dimensions of all hallways and doors along the delivery path.n Here are some guidelines:

  • — Hallway width at narrowest point must be wider than the sofa's depth or height
  • — Internal door widths must be wider than the sofa's depth or height
  • — Internal door height must be greater than the sofa's width (if the sofa can't be carried horizontally)

Expert Tip: Take note of hanging fixtures, low ceilings, etc. along the delivery path and factor these into your measurements

Step 5: Lifting Your Sofa Upstairs

Getting a sofa to an upper level is no easy feat but our delivery team are experienced with even the trickiest stair situation. Unless you have a very wide staircase with large landings, this usually requires standing the sofa up on its end. Remember these points:

  • Stairway width at narrowest point must be wider than sofa's depth or height, plus space to manoeuvre
  • Any stairway landings must be wider and deeper than sofa’s depth and height plus space to manoeuvre
  • If our team are required to lift the sofa over a banister, there must be enough clearance between the top of the banister and the ceiling

Expert Tip: If you’d like to give yourself even more peace of mind, you can wrap your banister in blankets or foam to protect it.

Step 6: Using a Lift To Get Your Sofa Upstairs

If our delivery team will need to bring up the sofa in a lift, it is important to measure the lift which will be used as well. (N.B. These guidelines assume that the sofa will have to be stood upright.) Please confirm the below measurements:

— Lift door width must be wider than the sofa's width or height

Lift interior must be wider and deeper than the sofa’s depth and height, plus room for one person

Lift interior height (bearing in mind any hanging lighting) must be greater than the sofa's width

Lift weight allowance must be at least 80kgs more than the sofa's weight to allow for one delivery person

Expert Tip: Some apartment buildings can grant personal access to a lift which would make sofa delivery even easier. If your building offers this, please arrange in advance.

Step 7: Positioning The Sofa In Your Home

Step 7: Positioning The Sofa In Your Home

Once the sofa has been brought to the designated room, our delivery team will position it in its final spot as instructed by you.

Since our sofas are unpacked before coming into your home, there will be no mess for you to clean up.
