How to make a return at IKEA

We’ve simplified our IKEA return policy so that there are just three key things to remember about making a return to us.

  1. You have 365 days to do it.
  2. Bringing your receipt smooths the process.
  3. You can always return it to any IKEA store, no matter where you bought it.

We have detailed pages about the IKEA return policyIKEA guarantees and appliance claims, to help you along the way.​

In-store returns to IKEA

Return for free at any IKEA store, including our Order and Collection point.*

Our Exchanges & Returns area is where to head when you want to return anything to our stores. Because our 365-day return policy is simple, the process is usually smooth – especially if you bring your receipt and arrange an Express return online beforehand if this is available in your nearest store.​

*Returns cannot be made to any Plan and Order Points or partner location pick-up points (lockers, mobile units or DPD pick-up points).

Parcel returns

If the article(s) you are returning were purchased online and have a total weight of less than 10kg and can fit in a parcel of 60x50x50cm or less, it should be returned for free using Yodel.

You can return at your convenience to over 7,000 locations. Please be advised that your refund will be processed once the article(s) have been received by IKEA.

The Yodel service is only available for purchases made online. For the return of articles purchased in-store, please visit your local store along with your receipt and the article(s) you wish to return. We are unable to offer exchanges under the Yodel service.

Should you require an exchange, please visit your local store along with your order number and the article(s) you wish to exchange.

IKEA returns via collection

If you need IKEA to collect your order, you can arrange this from our Contact Us page. Please have your order number available. You will be eligible for a collection charge of £25 unless the product is faulty or not as described, in which case IKEA will cover the cost of return. Where a collection charge is applied, this will be deducted from the refund due to you.

Collection of the product(s) will only take place from the delivery address to which they were delivered.

Cancelling an IKEA order​  

For orders not yet dispatched, you can cancel through the IKEA Track and Manage my order page. For dispatched orders, simply cancel by contacting IKEA Customer Support Centre. ​ 

For online orders, we offer a 14-day cancellation policy. This provides a full refund, plus your basic delivery charge, if you cancel up to 14 days after the order has arrived with you.​

When contacting us, please have your order number ready.
