Give your IKEA furniture a second lease of life

Every year, millions of pieces of secondhand furniture go to waste. That’s why we’re buying back your used IKEA furniture, to give chairs, shelves or chests of drawers as many lives as possible.

With the IKEA Buyback & Resell service, IKEA customers can receive an IKEA refund card and give unwanted furniture a second life. This way you allow someone else to enjoy your second-hand IKEA furniture instead of having to buy something brand new.

What your used furniture is worth will vary, but you’ll get an IKEA refund card with higher amount for pieces that are in better condition or like-new.

As an IKEA Family member you get 10% more back for your old furniture(s)!

How our Buyback & Resell service works

  1. Do you have old IKEA furniture that you no longer need? Find out what furniture you can sell back to us on our list of eligible items
  2. Simply fill out the form online to get a estimate for your old IKEA furniture. You will receive your estimate via email containing your quote and estimate number (This feature is currently not yet available in English. You will be automatically redirected to the French or Dutch page.)
  3. Prep and go. Bring your furniture, fully assembled, with your estimation number, to your nearest IKEA store. 
  4. At the exchange & returns area, a co-worker will compare the furniture’s condition to the estimate and set a final buy back price (that can differ from the estimate). You will receive an IKEA refund card to spend on something you need or love online or in-store. We’ll resell your furniture in our Circular Hub.
  5. Pat yourself on the back. You’ve done a good deed. You’re helping us prolong product life, promoting second-hand furniture at IKEA. Thanks for contributing to making IKEA more circular!
  6. Spend your IKEA refund card online or in-store whenever you want. You can use your IKEA refund card for an unlimited period of time from the date of issue, however, it can’t be used in our Swedish Bistros, Swedish Restaurants or Swedish Shop.
