IKEA Hack: Get Fast & Affordable IKEA Delivery

1. Slower delivery due to the pandemic

IKEA promises 2-week delivery. But due to the pandemic, deliveries have often been reported to take more than 3 weeks! This may be fine for casual shoppers who don’t need the goods to be delivered soon, but if you are an expat who has recently migrated to another country, you need that sofa ASAP!

2. Expensive delivery

It doesn’t help to know that IKEA delivery charges are skyrocketing, especially when their deliveries are running weeks late. Customers have also reported paying $499 in freight charges, for goods costing around $200! That’s around 2.5 times the price of the product, only for getting it delivered!

3. The ‘assemble-hassle’ after buying all the furniture

We wish that you could live a comfortable life, without further expenses, as soon as your furniture is delivered… But NO! IKEA’s partners up with third-party services to provide assembly services, which leads to increased expenses (the starting price itself is $39). Sometimes you can also assemble the furniture by yourself or with your buddies, provided you have the right tools. But if you purchase the furniture in bulk, it can be a tiresome job to assemble it all and if you force your gang to do the task, prepare to lose some friends!

So, IKEA delivery gave you 3 problems? We give you 1 solution!

No more expensive & late deliveries
YES, even for IKEA’s furniture! There are people willing to help you by providing service with their vans/trucks, for minimal costs. And where can you find them? Drum-rolls…

Right here on Lugagge Pool!

Oh, did we mention that numerous drivers are also available on short notice? 

What about the ‘assemble-hassle’?
Our ‘Avengers’ got that covered too! When you look for a driver on Luggage Pool, you can see that some drivers provide extra services: including working as a handyman to assemble your furniture. You can discuss these extra services with the drivers, and when they agree, it’s only a few bucks to assemble it all!
