to keep or to sell

Post by gangging » Thu, 02 Dec 2010 10:46 pm

I've got this long teak dining table that seats 10. I'm aware that space is an issue in most condos but I figured if I pushed one side towards the wall then it might work. My concern is, if I ship it to Singapore will I have a hard time getting it up to a high floor condo? It's our first move with lots of furniture I sold a lot of the bulkier ones but this I'd like to keep. Can you spare me your thoughts?

What's the average lift size? You need to send measurements of the table to get a better idea. Length, width and height. A picture may also give a better reply, for those experienced in furniture removal like myself :wink:

You could always offer me it :) I have a large 5ft diameter smoked glass that seats maybe the same, though 8 comfortably, 10 max and our room is more longer and only 8ft 9 wide, so yours would fit perfect :lol:

Post a pic with the measurement and I can give you my best shot, if you can get it in a Condo lift.

Can the legs be removed?

Thanks for responding.
Measurements approximately:
length = 101 inches
height = 30.5 inches
width = 43 inches

Table legs are permanently attached. Nonfoldable hard wood.
Are the stairwells big enough to maneuver the table through?

2.5m should actually fit to the majority of the lifts. We have a sofa roughly of the size of your table and it is ok.

Just to be sure I measured our sofa and it is smaller than I estimated before: ~215x95x85 (cm). Probably your table will not fit to the majority of the lifts as I claimed earlier but for the staircase (I took a look at ours) seems still doable. You can more easily maneuver the table (empty space between the legs) than the sofa (ours with a solid wood frame). Of course no guaranty as both the lifts and staircases greatly vary from place to place but it seems doable.

Thank you. (I am delighted)
I'm hoping for a "look and see" before the actual move.
The answers you have given brought relief, because I am attatched to this piece. Some things are easier to let go and others just breaks the heart.
Sincerely.
