How Buyback & Resell works at IKEA

  1. Determine what you want to resell. Only unmodified, completely assembled second hand IKEA furniture is accepted for buy back at IKEA. Refer to the lists of eligible/ineligible products. For ineligible items, consider reuse, donation, selling via online marketplaces or recycling.
  2. Use the buyback estimator tool.  Find what IKEA furniture you’re interested in selling and tell us its condition. You’ll get an estimate of what IKEA will pay to buy back your furniture.  
  3. Prep and go. Furniture must be clean and assembled. Bring your second hand IKEA furniture and your estimate to the Exchange and Returns section of your nearest or favourite IKEA store. 
  4.  At the store, 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). After the inspection, you’ll be issued an IKEA refund card. We’ll resell your furniture in our Circular Hub. If we don’t accept your product, we can recycle/retire it in whatever eco-friendly ways are available.
  5. Pat yourself on the back. You’ve done a good deed. You’re helping us prolong product life, promote second hand furniture and waste less. Thanks for contributing to making IKEA more circular and to becoming people and planet positive!
