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.

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.

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

StepByStep is a great service to use if you're moving and/or need to have furniture assembled. They were very responsive in scheduling a time to come out and they quickly assembled two large pieces for me that saved me hours of time myself.

Erik and his business partner were great. Very flexible and willing to work with us in order to get the job done. They had a great attitude and came up with suggestions when they thought was necessary to enhance the job. The job ended up being more than just assembling furniture. Hiring Erik through an online service was outside my comfort zone because I usually work with individuals referred by friends etc. However, I reside in a different state, had no contacts in MA., and the job needed to get done. Erik provided his phone number and I was able to talk to him several times and prearranged everything beforehand. We had basically a weekend to get everything done so my son could move in before classes began. I pre bought paint from a hardware store convenient for Erik to get to and while I was flying to MA, they were painting the room. The next morning I met them and while his business partner continued with the painting, Erik went with us to the local IKEA to help us re-purchase the items because my pre-order from Ikea never arrived in time. Therefore, we would have not had any furniture to assemble. Luckily, we found all the items we needed at IKEA and he transported those items to my son's room. He also went with us to a local Home Depot and gathered additional items needed although it was not in our original plan. We ended up buying a window shade, a wall mounting bracket for TV, etc. By midday Sunday, the entire work was finished to our satisfaction. They worked early evening on Friday, the entire day Saturday, and half a day on Sunday. The room was painted (walls, ceiling, door, moldings, and closet), they repaired the tile floor and helped us set up a large area rug, they mounted the window shade, shelves on the wall, and the TV. In addition, they assembled all the furniture which consisted of a full bed, a desk, a 6 drawer dresser, a free standing shelf, and a unit over desk. We would have never been able to complete this job without the help of Erik and his business partner.
