MEASURING FOR DELIVERY.

Before your furniture arrives, you’ll need to take certain measurements that relate to getting it through your entryways. Use the handy guidelines below.

 

1. Measure your entryways.

Measure the heights (A) and widths (B) of any hallways and door accesses, as well as the entry clearance (C).

3. Compare the dimensions of your residence and your furniture to make sure it’ll fit.

And don’t forget to make note of any other obstacles like light fixtures, ceiling fans, banisters or imaginary dragons.

*The diagonal depth of upholstered seating can be determined by first placing a straight edge from the highest point of the back frame (do not include pillows) to the front of the arm. Then measure from the bottom rear corner of the sofa up to the point that bisects the straight edge.

Note: Our Measuring Guide is merely a tool and does not guarantee your furniture purchase will fit. You should consider the size constraints of the entire path from our delivery truck to the item’s final destination.
