i have a small car and was hoping to get someone to pickup some large boxes from Ikea, bring them home (waterloo) and then to install the furniture.

has anyone used/offered a service like that around here?

Thanks.....we're in need of wardrobes!

Ikea have now a delivery service (I think it's independent but based on their premises). I have used them twice and and was very impressed the first time round, the second time they were over an hour late and delivered the goods after 8pm on a sat eve. Unfortunately, I was not informed and didn't expect them to show up after they were 45 minutes late - luckily, there is a concierge at my block...... on the other hand I find it impressive for them to deliver it at this time on a sat eve!
They also have an assembly service but couldn't comment on that. Look at their website under store hours and info for all info - I used Edmonton.

Ikea charged 30.00 for delivery the last time i used them, well worth it..the poor driver carried up two massive boxes to the top floor..my hubbie was here at the time and did not think to tip them!

I think the delivery charge is the same irrespective of how many items?

IKEA delivery charge depends on which IKEA store - Croydon & Edmonton charge 30 but Thurrock charges 35

The charges for delivery depend on how much the value of the goods to be delivered is. I think up to 250 it's 30, up to 500 it's 40 and then its probably 60 for up to 1000 spend. - you'll need to check this as this is from the top of my head and might be somewhat inaccurat.

Call them on 020 8803 2572 - and please share the information you'll receive with us.

Thanks

Here at www.bigvan.com we've done Ikea runs, we've assembled Ikea furniture, we'ved moved Ikea furniture.
The durability of the furniture is dependant upon it being well assembled. So often flat pack furniture just crumbles in our hands because of shoddy assembly. There are no secrets to building flat-pack, just use all the screws, and occasionally a spread of glue. These guys specialise in putting it together, consequently, I should think they are reasonably handy, and the furniture should stand up to a good few years use. The pieces might even be strong enough to withstand a few removals!
