Can A Gaming Chair Fit In A Car?

Look, I am just going to be honest with you, if you game for more than 3 or 4 hours a day and you aren’t using a gaming chair, good luck to your back in a few years. Nah, I’m kind of kidding, but gaming chairs are incredible. However, are they easily transportable? More specifically, can a gaming chair fit in your car?

Most gaming chairs need to be assembled when they arrive. This means that they are transported while dismantled and in a box that can fit into most cars. If you are trying to transport a gaming chair that is assembled, you need to measure the dimensions of the entry points to your car and the chair’s dimensions.

Like I tried to say in the opening of this article, gaming chairs are actually really important. This is especially for gamers who spend a lot of time playing games. I use a gaming chair at work because it is just so comfortable and offers the best lumbar support out there.

Can A Gaming Chair Fit In A Car?

While we did touch on this briefly in the opening of this article, I feel that it is important to give you more information, and hopefully, we can answer all of your questions. In this section, we will go in-depth on whether or not a gaming chair can fit in your car. There are three things that you need to consider, and that is what we are going to take a look at in this section. Those three things are:

  • The size of your car.
  • The size of the gaming chair.
  •  Whether or not you can dismantle the gaming chair.

Now that we have those three things out of the way, we will take a deeper look at each of them. This will be for the reader who wants to know absolutely everything that they can. So, for everything that you need to know, keep reading.

The Size Of The Car

The first thing that you need to consider is the size of your car. This obviously plays a huge role, but it is only important to not dismantle the gaming chair before transporting it.

You need to find out the dimensions of the chair and measure your car’s dimensions, mainly the entry points such as the trunk and the doors. Doing this will help you prevent a situation where you rock up to a store to buy a gaming chair only to find out that you can’t take it home with you.

The Size Of The Chair

This is pretty much exactly the same thing as with the car. If you are unsure whether or not a gaming chair will fit into your car, there are two things that you can do.

The first thing you should do is only if you have the gaming chair with you, which is to measure the chair. Secondly, you can phone the manufacturer or the shop that you are buying the chair from and get the measurements.

If the store confirms that the chair will not fit into your car and they do not dismantle the chair first, then at least now you know. Now you can make another arrangement to get the gaming chair to your house.

Can You Dismantle The Chair?

So, this is where I tell you a little bit of good news. Gaming chairs almost always come dismantled, and if you are worried because you are the type of person who isn’t very good at assembling things, don’t worry because they are generally very easy to set up.

Again, if you are unsure whether or not the gaming chair comes dismantled or assembled, just phone the store and find out how they package the chair. If the chair is dismantled, it would often come in a box, and you can fit it in pretty much any car; heck, you can probably take it on a motorbike with you, don’t hold me to that, though.

How To Transport A Gaming Chair

In the previous section, I talked a little bit about transporting a gaming chair, and I mentioned that you could always dismantle it or check if the chairs were dismantled before purchasing it. In this section, we will take a look at the best ways for you to transport a gaming chair, so let’s jump into it.

Dismantle it

Look, if I am dead honest, I don’t really want to sound like a broken record but it is important to write this section for anybody who might be skimming the page or if you are just still looking for more answers to your questions. Either way, let’s take a look at the dismantling of a gaming chair.

Every gaming chair will be different, and hopefully, you still have your chair’s manual. If not, then you are going to have to google the make and model of your gaming chair, and trust me, there will be a step-by-step guide for every single chair out there.

Other than that, here are some useful tips that you should know about dismantling your gaming chair before transporting it.

  • Make sure you have a box for the parts.
  • Use little ziplock bags to store all the little components such as screws, springs, washers, and more.
  • Remember to label everything.

Doing all of this will make sure that you don’t lose anything, but also, it will also make the dismantling process a lot easier. With all of that being said, the biggest favor you will be doing yourself by doing all of those steps is making the reassembly easy. This is because when it comes to anything technical, assembly is always the hardest part.

Wrap It

Okay, so this part is pretty self-explanatory. You need to wrap the chairs, but you might be wondering what you should wrap it with, don’t worry, I’m here to give you a few tips and tricks.

You want to make sure that you have bubble wrap and sellotape, a lot of it, to be honest. If you can find a big enough box to fit the entire chair inside of, great stuff, but you still need to wrap the chair in bubble wrap, and you need to sellotape everything together. One key thing that you don’t want to miss is this:

Make sure that your sellotape runs from each arm of the chair. What this will do is prevent the chair from stretching, as weird as that sounds. Make sure, however, that you do not tape the arms too tightly because, in the same way, you don’t want the gaming chair to stretch, you don’t want to pull it together too tightly as the arms might get damaged.

Our Favorite Gaming Chair

As I said, I use a gaming chair at work as well, and in fact, I use the same model for both gaming and work. The chair that I use, in my experience, is perfect although it isn’t the cheapest. Anyway, here is my favorite gaming chair.

This chair has literally everything that you would need. With its premium price-tag, it comes with premium quality. The frame and the materials are all made with quality and comfort in mind.

Conclusion

When we are young, the things that we do might not affect us right now, but as you start to get older, all those times that we slouched our backs and sat in uncomfortable chairs will eventually catch up to us. I think it is important that you look after yourself; therefore, you should always use a gaming chair with proper lumbar support and is comfortable for long periods of gaming.
