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.

The Hemens range is slightly more stylish and comes in styles for the bedroom as well as the lounge. It has a more traditional look that the standard blocky Ikea Bauhaus style of furniture.

There are various desks and dressing tables in this style. They are often quick to assemble in 10-20 minutes and even the most complicated computer desk only takes 45 mins.


Sofas and Settees

These usually take long to unpack that anything, but typically about half an hour each to unpack and put the feet on. If you  want the cushions doing as well them it is an extra 30 mins. There are some exceptions which take longer.

Found the time during the evening to respond to emails about timings, prices and other detail without any fuss and very promptly. He arrived bang on time and got straight down to work and finished on time. There was zero mess and the work was carried out exceptionally well. I will definitely use them again and recommend to my friends. It has encouraged me to buy more flat-pack type items as I now know there are experts offering this great inexpensive service.

Karean wrote about the furniture assembly service received:

The service we received from Flatpack Amigos was excellent. They emailed promptly and were very helpful about arranging a convenient date and time slot. Our assembler was punctual and very friendly and I was so impressed that he wore shoe covers to protect our carpets. He made a marvellous job of assembling our chest of drawers and left the room spotless when he left. I would highly recommend Flatpack Amigos for their efficiency and for the quality of the staff they employ. Thank you!
