Will a Sofa Fit in a Pickup Truck?

If you’re planning to move a sofa, you may be wondering if it will fit in a pickup truck. The answer to that question depends on the size of the sofa and the size of the truck.

A full-size pickup truck typically has a bed that measures 6 feet by 7 feet. This may sound like plenty of room, but when it comes to furniture, that size can easily be exceeded. Sofa sizes range from loveseats at around 48 inches wide to sectionals that measure over 100 inches wide.

Measurement Considerations

When trying to determine whether or not your sofa will fit in your truck, there are several measurements you’ll need to consider.

First, measure the width of your sofa in inches and then subtract a few inches for margin of error. Next, measure the length of your sofa from end to end and add 10-12 inches for legs or armrests that may stick out beyond the length of the frame. Finally, consider the length of your truck bed and subtract an additional 10-12 inches for cab space.

Calculating Space Needed

Once you have all these measurements, it’s time to do some math! Add up all three measurements: width plus length plus cab space and compare them with the dimensions of your pickup bed. If they are equal or less than those dimensions, then congratulations – your sofa should fit in your truck!


In conclusion, whether or not a sofa will fit in a pickup truck depends on its size compared to that of the truck bed. By taking accurate measurements and doing some simple math calculations, you can determine if your couch will fit before attempting any kind of move.
