I do not know the answer and can not find out the answer. Someone has a "boxed from the factory" furniture item. It is bedroom furniture so they say. The box weighs about 250 pounds and is 7 feet x 8 feet x 5 feet. What could it be?
It surely won't go in the door inside the box. And that is a very large cardboard box.
I've moved lots of furniture and not sure what to make of it.

Early guesses are a tall and wide and deep armoire, or a two piece armoire.
Maybe a dresser and drawers in the same box with styrofoam padding..
Any other ideas?

I would think that if it is "boxed from the factory" that it would have names, models, and model numbers on it.  They don't usually ship things as 'mystery furniture'.  ??

I can not see the boxes - model numbers, until I travel the 75 miles and after renting the truck to deliver it, so at that point it would be too late.
There is another box that is smaller but weighs about the same.
8 x 7 could be a king mattress. Those are alligators to carry. But,the weight of the box implies in may not be a mattress and box springs.
The large king beds I've moved the 4 post screw out of the head and foot boards.
The box springs are one man can carry them (2) twin size.
I sure hope it is not a platform bed.

I'm not in a position to ask what is in each box.
I know the sizes and the weights.

Maybe it's a set of boxes packed in a single container. I don't recall seeing it done quite like that, but I haven't seen how every shipping facility does everything.

For furniture, it doesn't seem very reasonable to ship something with those dimensions and expect it to be put into a home. Multiple internal objects seems plausible.
