Once this has been done take all the screws out of the door hinges and put them in a secure bag for safe keeping. Taking the doors off gives you that extra room needed to get the sofa through.

Maneuver the sofa to the door way, rotate the couch so that the part you lean against is at the top and carefully position the couch in an angle that it will easily go through the door, you may not have much room between the sofa and the door way so be careful when pulling the sofa through the door way to avoid it being scratched or ripped.
