IKEA Is Now Offering Furniture Assembly Service To Customers

Following its acquisition of TaskRabbit, the retailer has begun giving customers the option to hire someone to assemble their furniture purchases

Assembling your own IKEA furniture doesn’t always go as smoothly as hoped, so the Swedish retailer is aiming to save customers time and stress by offering them the option of booking a TaskRabbit Tasker to build items in their home. IKEA bought Taskrabbit back in September 2017, and is now putting the purchase to good use with its new IKEA Assembly Service.

Customers can buy their item online or in-store and set up a time to have a Tasker come put their purchases together. Assembly prices start at $36 per item and increase from there depending on the item’s size and complexity.

“With the addition of TaskRabbit, we’re able to offer assembly for online purchases, meaning that our customers can experience IKEA anywhere they like,” says Jackie DeChamps, the COO and executive vice president of IKEA U.S. in a statement. “It’s about offering flexibility.”

While the service may be undesirable for the DIYers and the cost too steep for the budget-conscious, its appeal lies in simplifying some of the tasks in the often stressful endeavor of furnishing a home.
