MEASURING
YOUR SPACE

MEASURE ALL PASSAGEWAYS

Believe it or not, the number one cause of disappointed customers comes from not measuring doorways. Isn't that ridiculous?

This includes hallways, stairways, doorways and everywhere else the furniture will pass by on the way from the truck to its new home.

In apartment buildings and homes with elevators, it’s also important to measure the dimensions of the elevator, including whether or not the elevator ceiling can be removed.

Remember to also measure clearance distances, as furniture may need to turn around corners.

Compare all home measurements to the measurements of your furniture to make sure that our delivery team can successfully move your pieces into their new home.



DOORWAYS

Measure the (interior) height and width of all doorways.

Check how wide your door can open, including if it blocks the full width of the doorway.

Check all moulding and detailing that may limit the span of the doorway.


STAIRWAYS

Measure the width of your stairway, between handrails, posts and/or adjacent walls.

Measure the height from the steps to the ceiling, from the bottom step to the top.

Measure to ensure the piece will be able to swivel, pivot or move around landings and turning points.


HALLWAYS

Measure the width of all hallways, including turns, twists or other variances.

Check for mouldings, fixtures and any other details that may limit the dimensions of the space.
