“I was moving house with the help of my ex-husband and my brother 6’7” 120kg. Both pretty fit although my ex has let himself go a bit. Everything was going well (as well as it could when you’re moving house) when we got to the 3 seater sofa. It had to go upstairs. So after more than half an hour of sweating and swearing (and a few marks and scrapes on the new walls), the boys got it up the stairs and to the door. There it got stuck and they both swore that it will never get through the doorway. ‘It’s impossible’ they said.”

“So I said leave it in the garage and I’ll work out what to do. The next day I rang Darren a friend of mine who delivers sofas for a living and he said it shouldn’t be a problem and he’ll call around after work to sort it. I said I wasn’t sure if I could organise one of the boys and he said we’ll be right just him and me. I had my doubts.”

“He arrived, wrapped it in a Rap specially designed for sofas, I got on one end, he got on the other and within 5 minutes we’d got it up the stairs, through the doorway and into the room.”

“I still can’t believe how we did it! I guess it goes to show if you know what you’re doing and you’ve got the right tools it makes any job easy.”
