Hello AT,

Do you have any advice about moving couches in and out of windows? We're moving into a duplex with an awful couch stuck inside (a wall was built to separate apartments after the couch was moved in), and we've fallen in love with the 82" Case Study couch (at left), which we'd love to buy--but not if it will cost a fortune to bring in through the window...

I admire the brave woman who hired someone to saw her beloved couch in half, but I don't want to risk it with a new and expensive piece fo furniture. Do you know of anyone we could hire to help us with this quandary, and what it might cost?

Thanks, Lauren

Dear Lauren,

We love your choice of sofa and don't want to see you pass it up. However, we don't have any experience moving sofa's in/out of windows, but we think that if you called Rabbit Movers they would have your answer. Windows are often smaller than doorways, so unless you remove the whole frame you don't get a tremendous advantage.

Has anyone done this???
