New couch - condo hallway

We are looking to purchase a 96” long couch and Im wondering how do I confirm I can fit it inside my unit.

The door opening is not an issue but how can I turn that couch in a what seems like, tight condo hallway.

The door is only 8’ high so flipping it straight up doesn’t work.

It seems like with such a sharp angle and being so long, it will be problematic.

Any experience or best way to figure out if this works?

Thanks

Is it a solid 96 inches long, or is there some "squish" room in the material? Is this 8 foot door a floor to ceiling height or is the door opening a little lower than the ceiling on either side? When you say condo, is this an apartment building type, or a townhouse type? If a townhouse, do you have a patio door you can remove and come in that way? If an apartment type, how will you get it to your unit in the first place?

Careful cutting and then reconstruction of the crosspieces, from underneath, so you can bend the couch without damaging the surface material. Warranty will be void, but this is how it's done if there truly is no way of moving it into the unit intact.

It’s a solid 96” - being that it’s the length, no budge.

It’s in a condo. The elevator has a 10’ ceiling so it can essentially be loaded vertically inside.

Once you flip it vertically in front of the door, can you then tilt it a bit using the width of the hallway and then bring it in through the door?

If I'm visualizing it right, it sounds like getting into the unit is ok, it's the getting from the unit door to the living room inside the unit that the issue is.

I would make sure the place you buy it from has a return policy in case you can't get it in. We bought a sectional from Bad Boy, they couldn't get it in, my wife refused it, turned out we could only get a credit, not a refund. We had them bring the thing back and we figured it out, with some removal of doors and trim.
