Buy back & resell

Give a second life to your IKEA product

Instead of recycling your old stuff, try the IKEA Buy back & resell service. It’s even more sustainable, and everybody wins. Someone else gets to enjoy your second-hand IKEA furniture. You do something that’s good for your wallet and the planet.

Once you’ve got extra space in your home and credit to spend, why not browse the bargains at your local IKEA store to find a great deal of your own?

How can I sell my used furniture back to IKEA?

Follow the steps below to give your used products a second life.

  1. Follow the steps of the Buy-back tool below to get a preliminary offer of the second-hand value of your furniture. This offer will be valid 30 days.
  2. Bring your assembled IKEA furniture, together with the preliminary offer, to your nearest IKEA store. An IKEA co-worker will make a final assessment of your product and confirm the offer.
  3. You will get a refund card for the agreed amount to spend in the store. This card is valid for 36 months.
  4. Your furniture will then be resold in our second-hand area for the same price as we pay you, plus VAT.

If we are unable to sell your second-hand products, we will dispose of them responsibly and recycle them wherever possible.

The buyback service is currently for personal home products only, and the number of products used is limited to up to three per person per day.
