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:

Furniture Assembly Prices
  • Results for:
  • Canada
  • United States
  • Average cost to assemble 1-unit
  • $35 – $90
  • $100 – $150
  • Average per/hour service fees
  • $18 – $70
  • $50 – $150
  • Minimum cost
  • $50 – $150 | 2-3 hours min
  • $100+ | 2 hours min
  • Maximum cost
  • $200/unit
  • $500/unit

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.

Icon Additional Costs

Additional Fees:

  • Parking fees, excluding parking tickets, are added to all final service fees.
  • The minimum starting fee for complex furniture items and all commercial-related projects is 2 hours. So it’s best to have at least 1 or 2 items on your to-do list.

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.

A Handyperson has the tools and know-how to put anything together perfectly. However, the catch is that you will have to find a good one. Unfortunately, not all Handymen are created equal. Some enjoy furniture assembly, and others prefer to toss a furniture kit out the window in frustration.

Domestic battles over the Swedish retailer’s products are such a common feature of modern cohabitation that comedian Amy Poehler once joked that Ikea was Swedish for “argument.”

Furniture Assembly Customization Graphic

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.

Furniture Assembly Removal Van Graphic

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.

Below, we highlight a few tools that our team uses on a day-to-day basis as Handymen. Feel free to check them out.

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

Icon Furniture Assembly Meaning

What Is The Meaning of Furniture Assembly?

Furniture assembly is a process of putting together a furniture kit, such as a chair, office table, or bed frame, that follows a specific set of guidelines from an instructions booklet.

The process of assembling furniture varies depending on the type and make of the unit. Generally, Ikea units are easiest to build, with Wayfair and Amazon kits fairing closer to rocket science. Some people prefer to assemble furniture kits themselves, while others prefer to have a professional do it for them. It depends on the tools you have, your level of experience, and whether or not you have free time to embark on an awesome adventure.

Generally, if patience is one of your virtues, and if you have time, assembling a kit can be fun and therapeutic. It’s like building a big 3d puzzle, but when complete, it’s a puzzle you can actually use!

Icon Furniture Assembly Flat Pack Meaning

What Is The Meaning of Flat Pack Furniture Assembly?

Ready-to-assemble furniture kits from brands such as Ikea, or Wayfair, are also known as Flat Packs. They are a kit of components packaged in form-fitting boxes that can be easily picked up or delivered.

It is left to the purchaser to put Flat Pack furniture kits together and bring them to a final assembled form.

Depending on the piece of furniture, it can have five components, or over 50! Despite the number of pieces, assembling Flat Pack Furniture generally requires no special tools besides a screwdriver and an Allen key, and each kit comes with its own unique set of instructions.

Icon Furniture Assembly Delivery

Does a Furniture Assembly Service Include Delivery

No and Yes. Delivery is generally a separate service that involves delivering furniture to a customer’s address. The store where you make the purchase commonly provides you with a delivery service.

However, there are times when it’s a good idea to send a Handyman to go shopping for you. For instance, when you require a custom modification done to a unit you’d like to purchase. In this instance, it’s best if a Handyman buys the parts and any extra parts needed for additional modifications. It always helps if the pro is around to eyeball materials and see what can work best to form a perfect finished piece for your needs.

Icon Furniture Assembly Instructions

Furniture Assembly Instructions

The instructions booklet is a crucial element of a furniture kit. It usually contains diagrams and illustrations to help you better understand how everything is placed together and what tools you will need to do it.

If the instruction booklet is lost, an assembly can be a truly frustrating experience. Because if you have zero guidance, you must rely on your wits and puzzle-solving prowess to solve all upcoming riddles of a furniture assembly challenge. And yes, it will most certainly be a challenge!

Never lose your instruction manuals. They are your savior, your help, and “Your Precious.”
