Arrived on time, excellent work, very reasonable price. Very happy with service, would hire again.

I am a very experienced competent person with a good knowledge and understanding of how things need to be built, repaired or secured safely to walls or ceilings. I have Public Liability insurance, a recent Enhanced DBS Certificate to be able to work in schools, care homes and other similar workplaces. Ihave recently updated myself by taking and passing an approved (CPD, ROSPA) Electrical Safety Course. I always try to agree a price that makes both the customer and myself happy for the work to be be done. Most recent job requests have been repairs; from rescuing part rotted decking and restoring to repairing an underground wired garden lighting system. However historically fitting blinds, curtain rails, mounting large TVs {hidden or trunking for cables if you chose} shelving, building high street flat pack furniture, bespoke decking are popular requests. All work guaranteed. Thanks for reviewing my gallery and considering me. Don't hesitate to call me at anytime.

There were 4 jobs-2 done over 2 days. 2 were expected to be more complicated, involving pulling out pipework & were not done. The toilet area was quite dirty after he pulled it out to fix the fill valve. The toilet flush & tap washer have been fixed. He was very chatty & very friendly. Good comms about when he would be able to come round or if he was going to be later. The bill was 50% higher than quoted but settled at quoted level.

I have been in the trade for many years & I'm very experienced, I'll give the best quoteation no job to big or small!

Flat Pack Furniture Assembly specialists - what you need to know

woman looking frustrated next to a pile of disassembled furnitureFlat pack furniture assembly follows an all-too-familiar process for many of us. Stage one: stare at instructions blankly. Stage two: try not to get frustrated while making sense of the ambiguous diagrams. Step three: bin the manual and leave the disassembled furniture piled up in your garage or spare room.

If that sounds about right, you’re not alone. And that’s the precise reason why it’s quicker, easier and healthier (for your sanity and/or hair line) to seek out a flat pack furniture assembly specialist.

No matter how vague the instructions, even if they’re seemingly (or literally) in a foreign language, a furniture assembly expert will arrive and wipe away your flat pack woes. With a background in handyman work or as a general builder, they can put their logical mind into action and solve your coffee table conundrum or entertainment unit enigma.

Cost of flat pack furniture assembly

The price you’ll pay for flat pack furniture assembly depends on how many items you need to have built, and how complex they are.

You’ll usually pay an hourly or daily rate. The cheaper end of the hourly scale comes in at £25, with the top end around £60. Look to £40 as a sensible average. For day rates, expect to pay between £125-£250.

Furniture assembly – how long does it take?

handyman assembling white furniture

A professional will be able to breeze through your flat pack furniture assembly jobs in no time. Well, perhaps “no time” is a slight exaggeration – so, we’ve outlined the approximate assembly timings below:

  • Dining table and 4 chairs: 60-120 mins
  • Entertainment unit: 45-60 mins
  • Basic double wardrobe: 45-60 mins
  • Basic chest of drawers: 60-90 mins
  • Double bed: 60-90 mins
  • Bedside table or cabinet with 3 drawers: 30-45 mins

Furniture assembly – what tools do you need?

Your furniture assembly pro will carry their own tools of course, but in case you ever need to disassemble or refasten any items, it pays to have the right tools in your toolbox.

Our essential list for furniture assembly includes:

  • Screwdrivers – of various sizes, both pozi-drive or phillips and slotted-head types.
  • Hammers – a claw and a rubber hammer, the latter of which can be used to gently “encourage” fixings together.
  • Spanners – either a set, or an adjustable spanner.
  • Allen keys – a set of different sizes.
  • A tape measure.
  • A spirit level.

The qualifications your flat pack furniture expert needs

 handyman assembling storage unitYour flat pack furniture professional won’t need any formal or trade body qualifications. Experience and a number of customer references are the most important requirements of your prospective furniture saviour.

Insurance for flat pack furniture assembly

Flat pack furniture can be pretty pricey. So, protect your possessions and your home against any damage your professional may mistakenly cause by ensuring they have public liability cover.

Questions you should ask your flat pack furniture expert

  • How long do they expect the assembly of your furniture to take?
  • Do they charge by the hour, by the day, or by item assembled?
  • Do they have a minimum job size, or a call-out fee?
