How to pack a sofa or couch for moving by van

There are no restrictive packaging requirements when moving a sofa with our Van Delivery Service. To ensure maximum safety during your couch courier service, we do still recommend checking our packing tips below on how to move or transport a sofa by van:

  • Remove the cushions and coverings. Clean them by washing or vacuuming, then pack separately for transport.
  • Disassemble the sofa if possible. Check if the feet can be removed, as this may make it easier to move the couch through door frames.
  • Cover the sofa completely with a large dust sheet or plastic protective covering to prevent the upholstery from getting scratched or damaged.

FAQ on how to move or transport a couch by van

Is it worth moving a couch using courier services or should I buy a new couch?
There are a couple of factors to consider when deciding whether or not to move a couch using courier services. A sofa is an important piece of furniture for day-to-day living, so if yours is particularly comfortable or if it is of sentimental value, you may want to consider moving it to your new home instead of parting with it. We offer safe and convenient sofa courier services that can transport almost any kind of couch, as long as it fits inside the vehicle.
Is it safe to move a sofa by myself?
It is not recommended to try to move a sofa on your own because you risk injuring yourself. You can ask a friend or neighbour to help you with lifting. If you manage to borrow or buy a furniture dolly, this will make moving a sofa much easier. If you are moving a couch to another location by van, an extra pair of hands would come in very handy for loading and unloading.
Are there different van sizes for moving or transporting a sofa?
We offer two types of vans for moving couches across Europe:
  • Box van: 465 x 165 x 180 cm or 13 cubic metres and 1000 kg capacity
  • Curtain-side van: 410 x 210 x 230 cm or 19 cubic metres and 1000 kg capacity (with tail-lift only 700 kg)
Longer couches can be placed diagonally to fit inside the vehicle. Measure the dimensions carefully so that we can arrange the right van and couch moving company for your requirements.
