We deliver your online purchases beyond your front door and into your room of choice. Our delivery service is available 7 days a week, at times that suit you anywhere in your local IKEA store’s delivery area. Terms and conditions apply
We have 2 delivery services used to deliver your order.
Parcel delivery

This service is used to deliver small items weighing up to 25kg. A parcel delivery can comprise multiple small packages
up to a total order weight of 100kg. Some of our products are not suitable to be delivered via parcel, for example products
containing mirrors or glass and some items over 150cm. These will be transferred automatically to a truck delivery where we
can take better care of them.

And remember, if your order is delivered via Parcel, then you don’t need to be at home to accept delivery.
Parcel Force will leave a card informing you that they will rearrange delivery at your convenience or
you can collect from your nearest depot. Alternatively you can arrange for your order to be delivered
to a different work address if this is easier for you.
The charge for parcel delivery is £7.50.
Please note any individual product that weighs more than 25kg will be delivered to you via our truck delivery service.
Parcel force will deliver orders Monday to Friday between 9am and 6pm.
Truck delivery

A 2 man team will deliver all orders that we classify as ‘large’ deliveries, (anything over the 25kg item rule),
and any products that we deem unsuitable for parcel delivery. Our truck delivery charges start from £35 and are based on postcode.
Your delivery charge will be calculated at the checkout.

The delivery date will be displayed on the website at checkout and in your Order Acknowledgement email.
Within 72 hrs we will confirm your delivery date in your Delivery Advice email, the email will also specify a parcel courier
or 2 man truck delivery. If you have included a mobile telephone number, then we will also SMS text message to confirm this date.

Why do we only refund to the same payment card?
It is a condition of the card schemes (VISA, Mastercard and Maestro) that all refunds must be processed on the same card used to make the original payment. This is to help reduce fraudulent activity. IKEA must comply fully with all card scheme rules in order to be able to accept these card types.

• You agree to ensure that there is suitable access to the chosen collection location;
• If our representative reasonably considers that collection from the room of your choice is likely to cause damage to the goods or to your property, they will inform you and record this concern on the collection document. You may instruct our representative to collect the goods in spite of such concern but we will not be liable for any damage caused to your property or to the goods as a consequence of us attempting collection on your instructions (provided that reasonable care is taken in collecting the goods);
• You agree to give our representative all goods which are being returned, including all component parts of such goods and all related items or accessories (and if possible the original packaging) which are included in the price of the goods being returned;

Refunding your money

We will refund the price you paid for the goods and credit the refund you are due to the credit, debit or gift card that you made payment with. However, please note that we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in the value of the goods, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way which goes beyond what is necessary to establish the nature, characteristics and functioning of the goods.

• If you have received the goods and we have not agreed to collect them from you, 14 days after the day on which we receive the goods back from you (or if earlier, the day on which you provide us with evidence that you have sent the goods back to us); or
