Frequently asked questions about furniture assembly services

Furniture that arrives packed flat, in pieces, requires furniture assembly. This furniture is called “ready-to-assemble” or RTA. Examples of ready-to-assemble-furniture are all around. You will see desks and shelving in offices that have been assembled. In homes, people often have entertainment centers, bookcases, armoires, and coffee tables that arrived in a flat pack and were assembled at home. Ready-to-assemble furniture has a variety of advantages. It is often less expensive than pre-assembled furniture. The flat pack allows for easy transport between the store and home. In addition, some homeowners enjoy a sense of satisfaction when they have assembled a piece of furniture.

While the flat pack furniture arrives instructions and “everything you need” there are some things to note. You may need a Phillips or flathead screwdriver, and a hammer or mallet to assemble your piece of furniture. You’ll need enough space and time to lay out all the pieces and carefully follow the instructions step-by-step. It is possible that you will not be able to call the store for support if you run into trouble. It may make sense to hire a handyman to assemble your furniture. They may have more experience with putting together flat-pack furniture which could save you time and headaches.

There are many reasons it may make sense to hire a handyman to assemble your flat pack furniture. Hiring a pro will likely cost a set amount per hour, plus a tip. The expense may be well worth it. A contractor may have had experience translating many different kinds of confusing instructions. They will have lots of tools at their disposal and bring plenty of experience to the furniture assembly process. Qualified pros will clean up the mess left after the furniture has been assembled.

One of the attractions of ready-to-assemble furniture is its low price point. If you damage or damage or break one of the components making an error in assembly, the mistake could be costly. A good handyman will get a flat pack piece of furniture assembled more quickly than you might be able to manage. Your time is worth money. In order to preserve your initial investment from possible costly errors, and save you time. Hire a pro. After your furniture is assembled you can expect to tip your handyman anywhere from $10-$20. Opinions vary on the amount, use your judgement based on the length of time the project took, the pros ingenuity and the complexity of the project.

Flat pack furniture is very popular for many reasons. Flat pack furniture, is also called ready-to-assemble furniture and knock down furniture is made of solid wood, medium density fiberboard, or chipboard. Medium density fiberboard, or MDF is made of the residuals from softwood and hardwood mixed with wax. This compound combines to form a panel, which is typically stronger than chipboard.

Flat pack furniture is also referred to as “knock down” furniture, as well as ready-to-assemble (RTA) furniture. It tends to be reasonably priced and, as its name implies, it is easy to move from a store to a home or office. If necessary, flat pack furniture can also be taken apart when you are moving to a new home. The drawback to flat pack furniture is that it requires assembly which may or may not be tricky. Depending on your level of expertise in furniture assembly, it may make sense to add the cost of hiring a handyman to help to the price of the original flat pack price. Flat pack furniture can be well made, and may be a good value for your home.

People frequently hire contractors to assemble beds, chairs, entertainment centers and other pieces of furniture. Many factors go into how much you might expect to pay for furniture assembly services. Each handyman or furniture assembly contractor will have an hourly rate which will be based on their level of expertise, and the going rate in your locale. Some furniture assembly pros will offer a per-piece pricing structure. Many contractors have a minimum fee. Add to this amount, a fee for geographic travel if you live far away from the contractor’s home base. Finally, you’ll likely want to add a tip when you pay a handyman for furniture assembly services.

There are plenty of reasons to hire a handyman to help with furniture assembly. Flat pack furniture arrives packed in a crate with instructions, hardware, and the various pieces that need to be assembled. Assembling a knock down piece of furniture requires time and patience. A mistake in the assembly process is easy to make, and can be frustrating. Worse, missteps in the process can damage the new furniture before you’ve even used it. A pro can assemble the furniture far more quickly and efficiently than the typical homeowner saving you time, money and headaches.
