"My specialty has been working with bachelor pads."

H Alex Sanchez is a go-to designer in D.C. for guys who want their small spaces to show off a man's style.

"We have this tufted leather seating which is very masculine and yet very elegant."

But getting all the pieces into this narrow Adams Morgan condo was no easy feat.

"This took about six to eight months, just with the custom wall paneling, custom color floors...Moving things around are like impossible. So my assistants, my contractors, they all pretty much hate me."

We asked Alex to try out the EZ Moves - on the very floors that he carefully crafted for a meticulous client to see whether that same team might love him or hate him more.

"This is the EZ Moves do it yourself furniture moving system. It says just lift, place and slide. We'll see."

"I really wanna test it out on being able to move this sofa because it has metal legs."

Alex tries, but cannot get the lever to prop up the couch as instructed.

"I pretty much have to lift it myself, and then slide it underneath."

"The sliders definitely work."

Next, we headed into the bedroom with it's upholstered walls and drop ceiling to tackle another big item.

"He wanted a bedroom that is inspired by hotels..."

The centerpiece is a bed made of stainless steel. Can he get a lift, this time?

"I'm going to have to rely on my Hercules strength to lift this bed up."

Once Alex gets the movers on each side ...

"The bed moves easily."

So would he try it again?

"Probably not, mainly because I think you can get other furniture movers, other furniture pads and save the money it costs to move the furniture."

If you have furniture with an open space underneath - you might have a better chance of getting the lever to work. Once the sliders are on, the furniture moves quite easily.
