You can find previous Murphy bed questions with answers by putting the phrase - Murphy bed - into the Ask box.

A Handyman would be the usual person to do this - particularly if you have the instructions for it or can download from the web.

Commonly a 2-person job so if you are not able to lend a hand let him know to bring a second person.

Some take a special tool (or a custom-bent large screwdriver) to work the spring onto the spring mounting bracket in the wall unit, because of the tight clearances.

Some "unitized" or modular murphy beds have to be assembled completely (except for the mattress and bedding) BEFORE pushing it up against the wall - you cannot install the operating hardware if the side panels are already on - it has to go together from one side working toward the other. This may be why you hit a stumbling block.

And generally, you assemble the spring and hardware with the bed in the full or mostly full UP position, so the sprins are not extended.

I have also seen at least one make/model where it is assembled on its face on the floor with the bed frame in place - the hardware fastens to the bed frame first, them you lay the wood frame down on its face around the bed, bolt the operating hardware to the wood frame, then tilt the whole thing up against the wall and fasten the wood frame to the wall.
