LA Good Questions: Large Couch vs. Small Door

Dear AT:LA,
I recently bought my first condo and my couch that is a gem, beautiful mid-century piece I just bought in August from a Palm Spring antique store would not fit it in the door. I have been reading about couch doctors but they all seem to be in NYC. Is there anyone AT can suggest in Los Angeles?
Very best,
Delaney
