Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I'm hoping a FixYa expert, or experts, may have some experience with the problem I am about to face. Having ordered some new furniture, I am arranging for a couple of strong-armed gentlemen to come and remove (a) an upholstered two-seater La-Z-Boy reclining settee and (b) an upholstered La-Z-Boy swivel chair. I'm not too concerned about the chair, but the settee is a different cup of tea. It weighs a ton. I believe it can in fact be separated into two separate pieces, but I wasn't at home when it was delivered and my husband can't be sure that this was the case. Frankly, for the life of me I can't see how the delivery men could have got it through the front door otherwise. Sorry, but I can't identify a category of expert for this problem, so I've just picked one for starters. Anyway, it would be great if some knowledgeable expert could give me a heads up/tips on how to tackle this potential problem. Many thanks..

    Thanks DARKLORD1. As I'm only expecting to get two people to move the settee, I think it would be best to opt for the "flipping"/"unmounting" option. It doesn't help that the settee/sofa has a fairly high back; but your suggestions are well taken, and for someone who knew what the heck s/he was doing it should be fairly straightforward. Anyway, thanks again, and I'm hoping my concerns will be unfounded, and the helpers will be familiar with the problem. Cheers .....

    DARKLORD1's suggestions were indeed very helpful, and confirmed what I was hoping would be a solution.
    Once again a FixYa expert has come to my aid..

Well it can be seperated by flipping it over and unmounting it by unbolting it from the underneath.. But I was able to move similar stuff around by simply tilting it at an angle to get it outta the door. you would aloso find that if 3 ppl both ends and middle lift something with the front then back first it dont be that hard to lift. But you can unmount it from the underneath.,.,

May i know the qualification of each & every experts ???


You can check our individual personal profiles and see what we state about ourselves.

To get to the personal profile type" of the expert here)".

Fixya counts thousands of experts and allows everybody to answer free questions. There are experts with no qualification at all and experts with long professional history and high level qualifications. Only selected experts can answer pay-for questions. In that case experts are usually qualified or they did build up technical background, skills and knowledge performing professional activity or DIY.

In my case:

Electronic Technician qualification.
Science and technology diploma (A Levels)
1 Year car garage experience.
Some plumbing and building experience.
Repair technician in a museum (4 years)
On Field service technician qualification.
Tech support qualification.
Electronic technician (over 10 years in shop and on field).
Car and motorbikes restoration (I still have 4 bikes ranging from 1932 to 1970).
Cisco CCNA 1.
Advanced network technician.
Engineering BSc Hon. (electromechanical engineer, appliance design, car electronics).

My Fixya expert utility doesn't work. Error

Download and install the .NET Framework from this link :

A quick Google search tells me this error means you are running .NET programs without having it installed. Surf to Windows update and patch .NET layer to your system. Horizons requires at least version 1.1 I think.

Issues with Fixya chat?

There.. thats the problem. I was having issues with IE too. Download and install mozilla firefox 3. Before you install it remove the expert utility, then install firefox and install the expert utility again. All your chats will open in FF from then on and you should have no problems.
