Blue children's room with a toddler standing in a cot, and his sister in the room.

Send furniture to the next round.

Life goes on and situations change. Maybe you only use some products for a certain period of time. Has your child outgrown its cot, but the cot is still in good condition and could be used by someone else? Return it to us and we'll give it a second chance.

We offer IKEA Family members a service that allows them to sell selected products back to us at IKEA for a prearranged price.

As an member you buy a product with the Guaranteed Buyback symbol. This symbol is placed on products for which IKEA guarantees that it will buy them back for a prearranged price when you no longer need them. The guarantee is valid for two years for IKEA Family members who use their card when purchasing.

If the product is in good condition and meets the conditions of the service, bring it to an IKEA store and go to the Customer Service area. You can find out the purchase price in advance in our price list. We buy the product from you and send it to the next round. You receive the value of the goods in the form of an IKEA refund card.

We sell the product to another customer for the same price that we bought it from you for. If you want to get children's products at a reduced price, visit our discounted goods section. You also get a one-year guarantee for used goods.
