Ikea Furniture

Ikea invented flat pack furniture or so the story goes...

Regardless, they are the number one flat pack furniture retailer in the UK. There furniture is generally robuist and will last if build properly and not treated badly. On many items the finish will wear away but on the whole you get a good amount for your money.

We have done specific pages on the main modular lines as below:

and list below some of the other popular items to give you  an idea of assembly times. We have built pretty much everything they sell and know how long it will take to do it properly.

Delivery / Collection

If anything is missing it can prevent installation. Whether you are collecting yourself or getting them delivered the two things you must always do is as follows:

- Check the packaging is in good condition. If it is damaged, assume the contents might also be damaged. If in store pick up one that isn't damaged or if being delivered tear it at that point to inspect the contents. Reject anything that is damaged it will only cause you a headache later on.

- Check you collect or receive all the necessary boxes. Don't just assume the delivery guys will deliver what you picked in store or that the Ikea team delivering the furniture you ordered online will deliver everything. If anything is missing you will have to chase it up. Ikea are good at replacing anything under £150 in value (over requires an investigation - as I write), but the delay may ruin your plans. You should have at least one box for every item on your receipt. Some items have more than one box, those that do have a coloured number (usually yellow background) on the box and in small print indicate whether it is box 1 of 2 or 3 of 3 - you get the idea.

- Hinges are always packaged separately for the pax wardrobes except for the corner pax wardrobe.

- Handles are always sold separately for the pax wardrobes except for the Vikdel mirrored doors, which include a half moon chrome handle.

- Pax wire baskets have runners packaged separately.

Popular Ranges

All Beds

All of the beds without storage will take 30-40 minutes to build. Bunk beds and loft beds will take longer.

  • Bunk Bed - 2 hours. This is because each set of slats needs to be hammered on with two plastic bolts and this adds a lot of time.
  • Loft bed - As above but typcially 90 minutes although there is a huge double loft bed which takes 2 hours.

My husband and I purchased a few furniture items over the Christmas period and decided we would get some professional help with assembly, since we barely had time on our own. I found flat pack amigos via google and I filled out the quote option for my request of service. Immediately I received communication along with a very fair quote from Edwin. Prior to contacting flat pack amigos, I had shopped around with other competitors for a quote and was astonished at their prices. I felt flat pack amigos fit my budget and already I was impressed with their level of customer service, so I booked with them. Edwin our assembler came the very next day, he professionalism and his quality of work was above standards. He was punctual to the time agreed upon, came fully prepared with his tools, worked on the furniture immediately and worked fast. In this line of work it can get messy with boxes, styrofoam and lots of packaging, however Edwin took consideration in placing everything in one corner with little to no mess. Overall, my husband and I were extremely happy with the service provided and would recommend this company to anyone who needs help with furniture assembly, I promise you will not regret it as its a win-win for your pocket and for your furniture.

Chris was quite simply superb. He worked tirelessly throughout the day to assemble 3 Ikea combination wardrobes, 4 chest of drawers and 3 bedside cabinets. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend.

Alexandra wrote about the furniture assembly service received:

I am very happy with the service. I contacted another furniture assembly company but they were unable to service my area. Brendan was very friendly, prompt, clean and efficient! I highly recommend to others and will do so for my friends and colleagues.

Anita wrote about the furniture assembly service received:

I am very pleased with the service received and plan to use again soon. I was impressed with the swift response to my initial query, and that the job was done promptly.

Miranda wrote about the furniture assembly service received:

I was wary at first when I booked the service to put together a sideboard. I wasn’t keen on spending extra, but have a useless all thumbs husband who reads the instructions back to front so this was a godsend. Getting a quote was seamless. Richard was a thoroughly nice bloke, professional and efficient arrived on time, did not use four letter expletives unlike my hubby and completed the job perfectly. Thanks you so much will definitely use again
