Here is a previous similar question with answer FYI:

Or you can have it done by IKEA - but the assembly has to be purchased along with delivery - here is the IKEA link for that service -


http://www.ikea.com/ms/en_US/service-...


It never ceases to amuse me, and my opinion - people buy grossly overpriced IKEA furniture, then have to pay someone to put it together because despite the ads by IKEA that is is designed to be assembled by the buyer, the design and construction are so poor that is is a fight to get it together. First time I was called on to help assemble one I thought what a joke and some piece of knock-together dorm room Chinese junk from a box store, not "high-end" furniture.


Plus from what I have heard and read, it commonly comes mis-manufactured so it cannot physically fit together as it is supposed to. And while I have not seen it first hand, supposedly their new easy-assembly "invisible joint" connections are a nightmare, and cannot be taken back apart without breaking them or the furniture if you got something in the wrong order and have to partly disassemble it to start over. Maybe because IKEA is no longer made in Sweden like when they got started - evidently theuy now outsource the actual manufacturing to Asian firms, so guess you are getting what you should expect.


And the prices on their assembly offer - paying IKEA many hundreds of $ (per their assembly price schedule) to assemble something that should not take a handyman or homeowner more than an hour atmost (so not over $100-125) - guess there is a sucker born every minute after all.
