After the acquisition by Ikea of TaskRabbit last year, the furniture company is presenting an assembly service in some of its stores in the US. UU Ikea said on Tuesday that it will begin to align the labor service "taskers" by contract with customers who do not want to assemble the furniture of the company (or want to preserve a little sanity after putting together a shelf). When you buy items in the store or online, Ikea can book an appointment as soon as the next day.
TaskRabbit has already partnered with Ikea in the UK, but new services are now available in six stores in the Bay Area and tri-state area in New York: Brooklyn, Emeryville, East Palo Alto, Long Island, Paramus and Elizabeth before expanding to other Ikea stores in the United States. The assembly starts at $ 36 and is a fixed fee based on the item, according to the company. Ikea will continue to offer its own independent assembly partners to build its furniture, but the price starts at $ 89 and varies depending on the price of the item being assembled.
Fortunately, in both options, you will only be charged once you have finished the work, in case your task is also confused by the instruction book.
