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.

Some furniture was delivered damaged or with the wrong hardware and it is only thanks to Reese's professionalism that all 7 pieces of furniture were assembled by the end of the day.

Ollie was fast to respond, had open communication on what it would take to assemble, arrived on time and took care of the assembly of furniture. He also took care of disposing off the boxes and even helped us with moving some furniture around (not part of request). That was very nice of him.

Daris was first to reply to my Thumbtack post for furniture assembly and quick to respond during our initial correspondence. He was very diligent in coming to my home to assess the challenge of assembling my Overstock.com sectional that came with hardware but no instructions for assembly. He was quick to determine how to assemble this piece of furniture properly and did so. His drill batteries died in process bc the job was more involved than anticipated so he returned early the following morning to finish.

Paul is such a hardworking guy with quality work. He assembled our bed, drawers and vanity set with perfection. Storage bed was very difficult to assemble. Very happy and impressed with the service. Wish i could give him more than 5 star. Will definitely call him back for our other furniture assembly.

Great experience! Instead of coming and charging me for a furniture assembly, this contractor saw the pictures of the job, and just told me what I was doing wrong over the phone.

Reese and his colleague showed up on time to assemble several units, ranging from a bar cabinet to a media cabinet. In addition, they were tasked with a complicated repair of an armoire, bottom board. Reese and his colleague worked hard throughout the day, asking for my opinion on repairs and options that come with the furniture. Overall, they did a great job and I'd recommend them to anyone looking for reasonably priced high quality furniture assemblers.
