Default Furniture size and Service lifts

Hi Guys
has anyone had problems moving furniture into your apartments

I am hopefully trying to find furniture for the torch building but a lot of shops said that the marina buildings have stupid small service lifts which means you cannot easily get a 3 seat sofa through the door


Some shops were unhelpful and couldn't tell me if the lift in the torch could fit the stuff i was looking at and at the torch building they seem to have no clue either


I measured it myself, but at the risk of sounding like a girly girl, i don't trust my tape measurement skills!!!



Has anyone experienced such problems?

Any tips

I have a three seat sofa from Home Center and a king size bed all moved up the service elevator in the Torch. The couch is 2 meter in length, you should be fine. My couch did come apart though.
