  • Unscrewing or unbolt legs: If it isn't able to be done by hand, use the appropriate tool to loosen and remove each leg. Turn counterclockwise to unscrew or use a wrench to unbolt the legs. Pay attention if doing this for a couch with pull out bed. Typically there are quite a few more parts.
  • Lift the sofa: Once the legs are off, carefully lift the sofa and place it on a moving dolly or wrap it in furniture pads for protection.

How do you get a couch out of a tight space?

Getting a couch out of a tight space can be a challenge, but our experts have the insider info! Navigate those narrow hallways like a furniture-moving pro:

  • Measure your space: Before attempting any maneuvers, measure the width of the doorway and the height of the ceiling. This will help you determine if the couch can fit through the space without causing any damage.
  • Remove obstacles: Clear the path by removing any obstacles or fragile items that may get in the way. You don't want to accidentally knock over your favorite vase while wrestling with the sofa.
  • Work smarter, not harder: If the couch is too large to fit through the doorway as is, try these clever tricks:
    - Tilt and pivot: Stand the couch on one end and tilt it at an angle. Slowly pivot it through the doorway while maintaining control.
    - Remove the legs: If tilting and pivoting still won't do the trick, consider removing the legs. Most couches have removable legs, making it easier to maneuver through tight spaces.
    - Consider disassembly: If all else fails, you may need to disassemble that Ikea sofabed. Remove any detachable parts, such as the arms or back cushions, to make it more manageable to move. If all else fails, you might need to hire a sofa disassembly service.

With these strategies, you'll be able to conquer even the tightest of spaces and move your couch with ease. Wanna make this much easier? Hire a moving service! Check out this helpful article on how much to tip couch delivery.

When it comes to furnishing a tight space, you need to be strategic and choose furniture that not only fits but also maximizes the available space. Use the following tips to make the most of your small abode:

  • Multifunctional marvels: Opt for furniture pieces that serve multiple purposes, such as a chair bed, ottomans with hidden storage, or dining tables that can be extended when needed. These space-saving wonders will make your small space feel like a TARDIS.
  • Sleek and slim designs: Look for furniture with slim profiles and sleek designs that don't overpower the room. Minimalist aesthetics and furniture with clean lines will create an illusion of more space. Bonus point, look for fast delivery sofas and outfit your small space overnight!
  • Go vertical: Embrace the vertical dimension. Choose tall bookshelves, wall-mounted storage solutions, and floating shelves to take advantage of the wall space while keeping the floor area free. It's like organizing your personal library in the Tallest Tower of Pisa.

With these clever furniture choices, your small space will transform into a stylish and functional oasis. So, get ready to channel your inner space-saving superhero!
