How much does furniture assembly cost?

If you want to hire someone to assemble furniture for you, expect to pay $120 and $150 for their work. Typical assembly jobs include putting together desks, TV stands, dressers, playground sets, outdoor furniture, entertainment centers and bed frames, and each of these may entail a different cost based on their complexity.

Can you hire someone to put together furniture?

Yes, you can hire a professional furniture assembler to put together your furniture. The best way to find a furniture assembly pro in your area is to perform an online search and compare pros.

You should always search for top-rated pros in your area, and read their online profiles. Look for photos of past projects they’ve worked on, and find out if they have experience assembling beds, desks and office furniture, couches, tables, barbecues, gazebos — whatever it is you need help with.

Then, contact several furniture assemblers and ask them to send you a free cost estimate before you hire anyone. 

Do you tip furniture assembly guys?

If you’re pleased with their customer service and professionalism, it’s a nice gesture to tip your furniture assembly guys. When furniture needs to be assembled and installed — particularly if you have them try the piece in various spots — that might be even more reason to leave a tip. Also consider factors like weather. If a crew is battling inclement weather or assembling a heavy piece of furniture on a scorching summer day, it’s kind to tip a little bit extra.

Who can put furniture together?

A range of different pros can put furniture together, including contractors, handymen and even specialized furniture assembly professionals.

Kerry was very professional and a pleasure to work with. He was courteous and prompt and did an excellent job assembling furniture for my office. He also assisted me with the proper placement and hanging of artwork. I am happy to recommend him and his company, NuNu Designs.

Philip was reasonable, prompt, a good communicator, polite, and honest. He helped me assemble a baby crib and didn't leave until everything was the way I wanted it. He took away the crib trash and put all the furniture back where I need it. Hire him.

Robert's Assembly put my bed and nightstand together. It took Robert only an hour and he provided an amazing service. I am more than happy with his work and I am really impressed about the service they provide. The office called me 30 minutes before Robert got here, he was on time and did a great job. So if you are looking for someone to help you build your furnitures I highly recommend to choose Robert's Assembly.

All of the many, many positive reviews about Tom are well-deserved. He did a great job working over 6 hours assembling various pieces of furniture and installing lights for me. He was very efficient and professional. I highly recommend him and will be hiring him again for many more jobs.

Ali did an amazing job building my son bed & computer desk. He was friendly, well organized, and gave me an excellent quote. I love the fact that he communicated with me on his arrival time. Also, I was able to count on him to show up for the job. I definitely will use him again with my furniture assembly and I definitely recommend him to others. Thank you Ali, great job!!!

James is the best! On-time, clean, polite and very efficient! He carefully assembled 2 pieces of furniture from Ikea, which we all know are a pain. Didn't waste any time, got it done quickly and expertly. He even helped me place each item exactly where I wanted it AND took away all the boxes it came in, as well as some other empty moving boxes. I highly recommend James for your project!!!

I couldn't be happier! Frank is extremely professional, he knows what he's doing and his rates are fantastic. Plus he's a extremely friendly guy--an attribute that can take a lot of stress away when moving into a new space and trying to assemble furniture etc. He was communicative throughout the day, showed up early and built a fairly complex IKEA bed in less than two hours. All at a great rate!! I could not recommend Frank enough. Thanks again sir!!

Amazing experience. Raj charged by the hour but gives a quote once he sees the scope of the work himself. It took longer than expected (not his fault) but he didn't ask for anything more. The work was superb, and Raj is very pleasant to have around. Here's the best part: A piece was missing from the box and Raj went out and made it himself to finish the job. Didn't ask for more money again! In the end, I paid him double his ask. I felt badly and figured he deserved at least that! Assembling furniture? Call Raj for sure!
