    Ericthelobster,

    There are specialist companies which dismantle and transport grand pianos, at a price.

      The property was let as furnished so surely its the tenants fault they decided to bring their own furniture. I do agree though, if the door is a standard size the sofa should be able to be jiggled out (unless the sofa is a odd or extra large size). Having done a fair bit of furniture removing myself over the years it is sometimes a art trying to work out how to get a piece through a opening.

      I would be first tempted to tell the tenants its their problem to resolve and see what their response is. Also have you looked at if its possible to remove the door and not the frame as that would give you a couple more inches (no jokes please).

        Thanks in advance for your help.
        so, a week later, how did it all go?

          Thanks all for your help. The tenants managed to get the sofa out somehow, with no damage noted.

          The new door is definitely narrower than the old one, plus the positioning of the door handle means that it doesn't "open" as wide as it used to, as the handle makes contact with the wall sooner than the old one did (if that makes sense).

          Anyway, crisis averted at no cost to us!

            That's good. It sounds as though you are well shut of them. They sound a bit precious!

              Haha! Fortunately/unfortunately one of the two tenants has actually moved into another property we own! (Sans sofabed thank goodness). Latest complaint is that there was a lightbulb missing in the new property, so yes, you might be right about them being a bit precious...
