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?

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

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?
