Assembly service

With IKEA assembly service, you decide how to spend your time. Because some days, assembling furniture is fun and fulfilling. Other days, not so much. Our professional, convenient service lets you get life sorted instead of sorting screws.

Assembly service starts at $40. You can book while you’re shopping – online or in-store. A trusted professional will do the assembling so that you can focus on your to-do list. Of course, you can always decide to do it yourself since all IKEA products are designed for easy assembly, which saves money, too.

Assembly is available in many locations across Australia. You can find the estimate of your assembly if available in your location during checkout.
