Furniture Assembly Services: Which is Right for You?

Furniture assembly for IKEA products is such a nightmare that it’s become something of a running joke these days. Some people even blame IKEA for ending their relationships—and while we suspect they may have had their problems to begin with, a little part of us can’t help but wonder whether a company that puts out products with names like PÖANG and EKTORP might not have a bit of a sadistic streak.

Luckily, with furniture assembly services it’s easy enough to avoid the headache altogether (though you might have to come up with an alternate excuse to tell your mom why you’re single again). 

What is Included in Furniture Assembly?

Furniture assembly services: what's normally includedSome furniture assembly services provide everything you need from A-Z. They’ll arrive at your door tools in hand, put together the pieces of furniture or equipment that you need assembled, clean up any mess left behind such as wood shavings, product wrapping, and the like, and then vanish without a trace. 

Others will even deliver the furniture to you from the store, possibly fully assembled if it’s a small item like a chair, or else assemble it once it’s inside your home. 

Most reputable services are capable of any type of furniture assembly, whether it’s something that’s theoretically meant to be assembled by the purchaser (we’re looking at you, IKEA), or something more complicated that’s best left to a professional. 

How Much Do Furniture Assembly Services Near Me Cost?

How much furniture assembly services near you might costWhile the costs can vary depending on where you live, the type of furniture you’d like to have put together, and how many different pieces of furniture you have that are in need of assembly, the national average is roughly $120 to $150 for a piece of furniture. Of course, if you have something small that needs assembling, it will most likely come out to much less than the national average.
