Topics of Interest
Generally, How Much Does Furniture Assembly Cost?
Whether it’s office furniture or residential furniture, the assembly cost per unit varies depending on the type of furniture, its size, and how difficult it is to assemble. For example, a 12-drawer storage bed frame is far more complex to build than a metal bed frame with zero drawers. Additionally, sometimes special tools are needed to finalize an assembly, such as a hammer drill to anchor a cabinet to a cement wall or an Oscillating multi-tool to cut baseboards to make room for a cabinet system.
For specific units, we offer a price guide on our Handyman Rates » Fixed Prices section to help you determine the cost of an assembly. However, if the piece is complex and it is not listed, or if it is for a commercial business, then we generally charge a per-hour service fee.
To help compare prices, view the following chart:
The average cost of furniture assembly in Canada is $18-$70 per hour. $18 is for entry-level labor found on TaskRabbit or sites like Kijiji or Facebook marketplace. The more the rate goes up, the more experience and tools the service has to complete any job in a single quick session in any location and under any conditions. Higher fees mean you won’t need to bring in another service to finalize the same job, such as anchoring a unit to a cement wall or cutting a 1″ to 4″ diameter hole for wiring or venting a unique build. So higher rates mean a perfect assembly and all extras in one package.
In the US, the price generally starts at $50 and can go up to $150/hour depending on location, level of complexity, and experience.
Is It Worth It To Pay For Furniture Assembly?
Furniture assembly is one of those things that can seem easy to do on your own but can quickly turn into a giant nightmare!
Building a furniture kit might take a very long time if you possess little to no experience with furniture assembly. Additionally, you may need to purchase a tool or two to get the job done, and if Oops, something goes wrong, you may also need to buy the same unit all over again. For these reasons, it may not be worth the time and money to learn how to assemble a piece or two of furniture.Unfortunately, not all Handymen are created equal. Some enjoy furniture assembly, and others prefer to toss a furniture kit out the window in frustration.

Three Reasons Why To Hire A Professional To Assemble Your Furniture
Can a Furniture Assembly Kit be Customized?
A furniture assembly kit is usually a pre-cut, pre-drilled, and pre-finished set of parts designed to be put together in a specific fashion. However, a Handyman can always add extra details, manipulate the shape, and add more customizations to make it perfect for your unique needs.Fundamentally, when you hire a professional, you can be as creative as needed, add your aesthetic value and build a truly customized work or living space that matches your taste.
The benefits of customization are most evident when it comes to the colors and personality of a space. Fundamentally, when you hire a professional, you can be as creative as needed, add your aesthetic value and build a truly customized work or living space that matches your taste.
So yes, your furniture assembly kit, or even your existing furniture, can always be customized. Turn your house into a home, and make everything truly yours with the right qualified service professional.
Furniture Disassembly and Removal Service
When it comes time to move, many people need to disassemble and remove furniture from their homes. Like when we performed a dismantlement of a shelf unit for a client in downtown Montreal, furniture removal and disassembly is a delicate process, especially if it’s Ikea furniture. It is unwise to take things apart quickly without the risk of damaging the item, the surrounding structure, or worse yet, forgetting how everything goes back together again.
If you don’t have experience assembling furniture kits, hiring a professional with experience is vital. It’s even more important if a professional has experience working with different brands because each brand requires a different technique to take it apart. So here, “Experience” does matter.
If the unit is small enough, a hired dismantler can help transport your article to your new location. However, Handymen or Furniture Assembly services do not generally offer delivery and transport services.
Once a move is complete, it’s best to hire the same professional to put everything back together again.
