3. Up (or down) the stairs
If we’ll need to carry your design up or down a staircase, you’ll just need to make sure that the width of the stairs – or the space between the stairs and the ceiling – is greater than the piece of furniture.
Sometimes it’s necessary to lift a piece over the banister, especially if you have tight turns on your staircase. If you think that we’ll need to do this, just make sure there’s enough room between the banister and the ceiling.
If we’re able to get to your home in a lift, that’s always useful. Just be sure to check that the piece of furniture will fit through the lift’s opening (the same as measuring for your front door), and that the depth of the lift will be able to fit the furniture in the way it’ll be carried (whether that’s lengthways or widthways).
And, as some of our pieces can be quite heavy, make sure that the lift’s maximum load can take the piece of furniture as well as two members of our delivery team.
