Who can put furniture together?

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

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.

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. 

Reviews for Santa Barbara furniture assemblers

Daniel was awesome and I'd definitely hire him again! He assembled several pieces of IKEA furniture for me and did an excellent job.

Mario (and his assistant) were fantastic. I added tasks on the spot to my original request for assembling furniture and he responded with expertise and patience. An Ikea bed was dismantled carefully. They also dismantled with care a large modular wall unit, keeping track of all of the hardware for re-assembly - for which he will return late this month after my move. He beautifully re-finished a rolling cart butcher block and did major cleaning of an outdoor patio set. All was done efficiently. I certainly felt value received.

Stephen responded quickly to the job posting and was at our place the very next day to get it done. Highly professional and skilled, pleasant and efficient. He quickly assembled probably the most complicated piece of IKEA furniture that they make (a expandable daybed with drawers) and saved the day. Being laid up with hip surgery, I couldn’t do a thing and I needed that bed for my recovery. Thank you, Stephen!!
