Assembly service

You can assemble your furniture yourself, but you do have other options if that’s not your thing.

The IKEA assembly service gives you full freedom to decide how you spend your time. Sometimes you might enjoy putting your furniture together; other times less so. If so, you can leave it all to our professional installers to deliver and assemble your IKEA shopping. And you can go off and do something more interesting.

Book this service when you make your purchase in store (assembly by IKEA) or online or when you’ve already got your shopping home (currently exclusively through Needhelp). A professional installer will get to work so you don’t have to. You can assemble everything yourself if you want, of course, because all IKEA products are designed to be easy to assemble, saving you money.
