How to get affordable assembly for your IKEA furniture?
Depending on who you talk to about IKEA, some people love it, some hate it, and really all the hate comes from 1 thing – having to put it together. If you have never shopped IKEA just be prepared to do 1 of two things: put it together yourself or hire someone to do it for you. Nevertheless IKEA does offer assembly. However IKEA doe not assemble in store or on site. IKEA uses “IKEA Certified” assemblers through Task Rabbit. Which are just assemblers with good ratings
When you get a free quote from an IKEA co-worker it’s just that a quote and usually the quote averages about $36 per hour, minimum.
My IKEA Tip: If you go through Task Rabbit directly you are not tied to the minimum $36 per hour, you have entirely more bargaining power when it comes to price. Even working for IKEA I’ve hire someone to assemble 2 nightstands, dresser, and bed with storage for only about 100 bucks. Before you choose a “Tasker” from Task Rabbit check the rating and make sure you read the customer comments.
