Real Newbie question about laminate flooring


My father wants laminate flooring in our living room. Our living room measures at about 268 sq ft. There is a showroom that is having a sale until tomorrow for good laminate so we want to purchase but its kind of far. Can we bring the laminate back home in our car (honda civic) in one trip or would we need bigger space/other delivery options. How is laminate packaged? I am laughing at myself for even asking this lol.

Real Newbie question about laminate flooring


you should be able to see the specs ( box weight, size ) for the laminate if you google it or if its at one of the box stores, they'll have specs on the site.
