    What is approximate cost of removing and replacing this window? 16th Apr 17 at 8:48 PM
    A friend is wanting to move some large furniture into another house. Has any one a rough idea of the cost of removing and replacing the window shown below?


    Thanks,

    How large? Will it fit through the largest pane area? If so it's a fairly simple job to remove the glazed unit then refit.

    Thanks for the reply. No, the settee is too large to go through the middle section. It would need the full frame removing.

    does the settee not come apart? which company would design a settee that can't fit through a normal domestic door frame?

    I'll be very surprised if the settee doesn't come apart. There are companies that will dismantle settees are rebuild them. This will be a much simpler option that removing a whole window.

    How did it get in the place?

    probably a bit more(inflation) than it cost to put the furniture in the house through the same gap.

    I've now got a rather large sofa and I'd panic about how to move it from A to B - if I hadnt watched it arrive in my house in two halves (which they then put together).

    So I'm guessing this sofa is the same.

    I didnt have this sofa prior to moving here - but, if I had, then I imagine its part of a removal firms job to realise this fact and dissassemble the sofa at House A and then put it back together again at House B.

    After all - they have to do it with double beds.

    We have a John Lewis sofa that doesn't come apart. Even the legs are fixed

    When we bought it in 2014 - nearly new on preloved - we collected it ourselves and easily got it in through the French windows of our last house. Fast forward a year and we sold that house, buying a newer (1850s) house with lots of ground floor external doors, none of which were suitable for the sofa to fit through. To add insult to injury, I decided I wanted the blooming thing upstairs, lol

    Our removers - four of them - accompanied by me and DH, manhandled it onto the first floor balcony that opens from the room I intended to place it in.......only to find it was about 1cm too wide to fit through the external door......grrrr!

    Cue DH sawing the back legs off and reglueing them once it was in situ. Hoping to move again soon, so guess we'll do the same but in reverse.

    All previous sofas - from DFS to M&S and Tetrad to Multiyork - have at the very least had removable, screw-in legs.
