Question DetailsAsked on 8/30/2013

How much would it cost to assemble a 6 foot entertainment center that has shelving and drawers?

I would like it to be assembled somewhere else and then delivered back to my home fully assembled.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

You could check Angie's List for a Handyman, or a Moving and Storage company for a move-in crew.

I presume this is a kit type unit - designed to be assembled by the owner, or a unit designed to be taken apart for moving and you have all the original hardware.

Realize you way is going to COST you - probably at least $200-400 more than the maybe $60-120 it would normally cost you. They will probably have to assemble it on a reinforced plywood base to keep it from breaking when being moved, move it on a 6 foot long movers dolly. I hope you have a large elevator if in an apartment and not going up any stairs if in a house or apartment, and don't have any corners a 6 foot item can't go around, and not too high to go through doors, etc, etc

This is why these things are shipped unassembled and assembled with a few feet of where they are being installed. I fail to understand why you don't want it assembled where it will stand - this is normally less than a 1 hour job to assemble and slide into place, and you can specify the contractor is to bring clean tarp or cardboard to protect flooring, as necessary.
