I just moved into a new place and I can’t get my sofa and queen bed into the apartment! What do I do?

Many movers will disassemble a sofa/cut it in half — we had it done, and they didn’t hurt the sofa, though they did kick over a can of Fresca onto the Oriental rug.

If you want somebody who specifically specializes, you can try Dr. Sofa, who has gotten decent press. Any competent upholsterer can do it too. The job will cost you a few hundred, but that’s cheaper than a new sofa.

For beds, someone recently told me that they disassembled their frame and then bought a TempurPedic mattress, which I thought was smart. When Ron Lieber reviewed mattresses in The Wall Street Journal, (sorry, still looking for the link) he noted a slight smell attached to the mattress initially, but no other problems.
