Assembly and at-home services

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 skilled, convenient service lets you get life sorted instead of sorting screws. Assembly services start at £31.

What's more, with Taskrabbit's at-home services, you can tackle your other home improvement plans, with services from wall mounting, painting and decorating to gardening.

Taskrabbit

IKEA has partnered with Taskrabbit to make your everyday life at home easier and more comfy, connecting you with simple and affordable ways to get your to-do list done through a network of Taskrabbit  Taskers in locations around the UK.

Furniture assembly

Taskrabbit has created assembly pricing just for IKEA products starting at £31*. You will be charged a flat rate based on the products you want assembled, and will only pay once your assembly has been completed. Taskers will secure items to the wall according to the product’s assembly instructions at no additional cost. 

*Visit Taskrabbit.co.uk/IKEA to see additional pricing and find out if Taskrabbit is available in your area to book your assembly.
