    Question Need movers help for moving sofa

    Hi ,

    Can you suggest a good mover to move one sofa to my house. I will be needing

    1. Some one to dismantle the sofa [ they should have the tools]
    2. Load it in a van and drive to my location [ Nam chung to North point ]
    3. Fix it back safely at my house.
    4. I dont think it will go through the doors easily, without dismantling

    This is the support i am expecting. for better visibility below is the product I want to move

    Not much more expensive to abandon the old one and order a new one ?

    I had once looked for rental apartments and came across one unit where the entire apartment was empty except for the very same sofa you have here. This sofa bed is massive. It will probably cost you $1500 to $2000 for the job.
    Most moving companies wouldn't bother with such a low paying small job which is still very time consuming.

    You could try a handyman company (dismantle and reassemble) and gogovan (transport)

    I wonder if, since it is an IKEA product, that organisation could (for a fee) arrange its removal and restoration at a new location?

    Probably not, but surely worth the effort of enquiring !!

    And the company has had similar enquiries in the past, and could know of "Free-lance" dismantlers and removal gangs.

    Your "problem" as mentioned here may save others from falling into this "trap".

    225cm x 105cm x 83cm does not strike me as that big and are you sure you need to dismantle it? I think it will fit in most HK elevators (Standing upright is just like a really tall person) and fit through most doors. You know how to lift a sofa right? Just you grab one end, someone else grab the other end, you carry it down to the street and chuck it in the back of a gogovan 5.5 ton truck. Cost from Nam Cheong to North point is about $290.

    If you really want to go to all the hassle of a dismantling it, then it will fit in a Gogovan Van and dont need the 5.5 ton truck. This will cost $130 instead of $290, so saving you $160. But then you need to go throught the hassle of dismantling it, which actually is not a big hassle and most Ikea furniture comes with the little wrench tool needed to assemble/disassemble if you kept that. But it seems like you dont want to get your hands dirty or didnt keep the little tool and want someone to do for you. So then just pay a bit more for the 5.5 ton truck and be done with it.

    A 202cm Billy bookcase wouldn't fit through my doors straight on (about 2cm too tall) so we had to tilt it. We couldn't turn it onto it's side (landscape mode) as then it wouldn't be able to go around the obstructions we had. I think you'd be looking at about 1000hkd for this job.

    One of the options with Gogovan is that the driver assists you with moving. This costs a bit more, but is still cost effective. I had one who helped us hoist outdoor furniture from a rooftop! I gave him an extra tip for that...
