    Dipper is correct. The assembly charge is 10% of the cost of the item. And they are quick.

    Not only that but when I moved here they assembled another rather tall close closet I had bought earlier from them and the also guy offered to put up my curtain roads (not part of the IKEA purchase). I gave the crew of 3 a tip of $150 and wrote a nice letter to Ikea (leaving out the extras). The guy would have done it anyway even if I did not mention $$$...

    AC/DC fan?

    I'm assuming the Ikea furniture has not been purchased recently and is just sitting in your apartment. Am I right?

    No guy friends to help you at all aye? Assembly is hella fun.

    Anyhow. If you decide to contact Ikea for installation and assembly of your existing furniture, they may charge you differently since assembly normally comes with delivery. Not sure

    No, you can choose to pay only for delivery and not assembly, which'd mean that they deliver but you do your own assembling. Assembly does cost a lot, 10% of the price of the thing.

    I understand the 10% assembly cost. What I meant was I'm not sure if the charge is different if you ask them to assemble an existing furniture in your apartment purchased at an earlier stage.

    Don't know if they will even come out to assemble after delivery. I had enquired about a wardrobe when the doors I wanted were not in stock. I was told that if I got the wardrobe assembled, when the doors came in, I would have to do them myself and they wouldn't mount the doors for me.
