What is your Priority?
As always when moving home, your health and safety, and the protection of your items and home, should be your priority.
What are the most common calls to removals companies in the UK? It is when people have tried to do the job themselves or have wedged it in a doorway or have no idea how to get it into the home.

Seek professional assistance from a removal company if you do not have any help or are unsure whether you have the strength and knowledge to physically move sofa.
Is it Worth Moving a Sofa to Your New Home?
First things first… Decide if you really want to take your sofa with you to your new home, because you need courier service large furniture or courier sofa.
- It could be that it is too big
- It might be the wrong shape for the space in your new home
- It may be getting old
- Or simply just not the right style for your new place
In this case, it makes sense to either sell or donate it rather than go through the hardship of moving it.
Take your new home’s floor plan and measure if it would actually fit. You should not only look at the space within the room but also if it will physically fit through the doorways or along the hallways.
