Moving a couch in an apartment can be a daunting task. It's large, heavy, and awkward to maneuver, especially when you have to go up several flights of stairs or fit it through a narrow elevator. To make the process easier and safer, it's important to know how to move furniture to an apartment properly. The first step is to measure the dimensions of the couch and all the doorways it needs to pass through.
This will help you determine the best strategy for getting the sofa out of your apartment. If you're using an elevator, make sure to measure the door and width of the space to ensure that the sofa fits properly. You may also need to disassemble some of the larger parts of the couch. This will make it easier to move and reduce the risk of scratching or damaging the walls.
If you're using a professional service for moving, you may be charged an additional elevator fee for lost time. When it comes to particularly narrow doors, you'll need to position your sofa in a way that allows it to fit through successfully. Instead of banging it through like the Hulk, try moving it at different angles and experiment to see which way works best. If your sofa is too wide and too tall for your door, then you'll need to shorten its length so that it's shorter than the height of the door.
Removing the doors from your apartment can also make your job easier. Finally, if you're struggling with moving bulky furniture in a narrow elevator or climbing several flights of stairs, consider getting reliable help. You don't have to worry about carrying heavy sofas, tables, and dressers yourself; instead, let people who are engaged in moving things for a living do it for you.
