What services do I need for furniture assembly?
Furniture assembly services are easy to find, but knowing specifically what each company can do for you is a good place to start. Furniture stores often have an option to add assembly at checkout. Other organizations specifically just do professional furniture assembly.
Does IKEA assemble furniture?
Starting with furniture stores, IKEA is one of the largest furniture companies. The store claims that all of its furniture is made to be assembled by the customer. However, there are circumstances where extra help is required.
The store has partnered with a third-party organization called TaskRabbit, a company that connects with a network of “Taskers” that do everything from furniture assembly to grocery shopping. IKEA’s interface, which uses vetted furniture assembly professionals, typically deals with the assembly of large and small items, varying in price.
Does Walmart assemble furniture?
In March 2018, Walmart partnered with Handy for in-home installation in over 2,000 of its stores, which has since expanded to the e-commerce realm. Customers can now add assembly at checkout when purchasing an item of furniture.
Does Wayfair assemble furniture?
Wayfair also uses Handy for its assembly needs. Similar to Walmart, customers can click “Add Assembly” at checkout and Handy will send them a confirmation email.
Does Amazon assemble furniture?
Amazon is in the process of adding a home assembly service similar to that of Wayfair for its customers to add assembly at checkout. Currently, what makes Amazon different is that it charges by the service rather than the item.
Does LoadUp assemble furniture?
LoadUp’s furniture assembly services not only typically cost 20-30 percent less than other assembly services, but you will also receive a guaranteed upfront price online. We also include an option for both assembly, pick up and disposal, so you don’t need to worry about throwing out the leftover materials on your own.
Best furniture assembly services
Wayfair, IKEA and Amazon each offer furniture assembly services for you as an option at checkout. However, Wayfair and IKEA charge by the item. Amazon charges by the service, typically a standard rate per hour.
Understanding what you’re paying for is the first step in deciding what furniture assembly service is right for you!
Whether in person at the store on online, furniture stores will offer assembly for you, but prices can vary. IKEA’s rates range from $20 to $350 depending on the item, while Wayfair typically runs from $50 to $200. Amazon’s rates for service can be anywhere from $35 to $90.

Safe tips for self assembly
- Plan ahead.
Know exactly where you want your item, such as a dresser, to go. This will save you the hassle of having to haul your assembled furniture to a different location when you’re done.
- Organize your area.
Make sure you have all the items out of the box laid out neatly so you know where to find them. The instructions can be tricky, so being able to locate a specific nail or screw you need will be crucial.
- Carefully read the instructions.
Sometimes, this is the hardest part. Follow each step carefully to make sure your assembly will go as smoothly as possible!
Comparing assembly services
A good practice before booking a furniture assembly service is to compare costs and services across the board from different companies. Not all services are the same!
👀 Look closely: Most furniture stores charge by the item, but some, like Amazon, charge by the service. Read carefully! This information often doesn’t appear until it’s time to checkout. Be aware of exactly what you are paying for with LoadUp Assembly + Disassembly services pricing calculator.
Doing away with unwanted parts
While furniture stores and other companies offer assembly, disposal is often not included. You could be left on your own to pick up the leftover bulky items afterward.
As a ♻️ junk disposal service, LoadUp always strives for eco-friendly disposal of leftover items from your dresser, nightstand or bed frame assembly. While we can’t promise to avoid the landfill, we always strive to safely recycle any items to keep your area clean.

Throw out the old furniture!
Worst-case scenario, your old furniture is beyond repair. It’s time to take it out for good.
Check the trash and recycling resources in your area. In some cases, you may be able to take your furniture to a landfill. Avoid simply putting the items on your curb or in a dumpster, as in some cases, you can be fined. Some recycling stations require the item to be broken down.
Replacing? Fix up your old furniture!
What about your old furniture? You were able to get your new dresser or bed frame fully assembled but have unwanted furniture in the basement or garage taking up space. Maybe a handle broke off of the dresser drawer or the leg of the bed frame isn’t quite standing up like it used to.
You can try to fix the old items yourself, picking up the necessary equipment at a local hardware store or taking the item to any home improvement store.
Most big furniture items just require a bit of patience and the right tools to get fixed!
