What do you need to know about flat pack assembly?
The idea behind flat pack furniture is that it is cheap to mass produce and easy for anyone to assemble, at least in theory. In reality, a number of people find flat pack furniture instructions difficult to follow, so they decide to hire a Pro for the job instead. As most flat pack furniture assembly does not require any specialist skills, the best Pro to hire for the job will usually be an experienced local handyman.
Depending on the size and complexity of your flat pack furniture, the quote for your work could be anything from £25 to a few hundred. Some companies will offer fixed quotes for certain items like shelves, chairs or wardrobes, while others will offer quotes based on hourly rates. As a rule, it is usually best to get a fixed quote for this type of work, so that you know exactly what the costs will be from the start.
An important thing to keep in mind is that if your flat pack furniture is particularly small, the amount of work required might be too little. In other words, if your job is not worth enough, your Pro could actually lose money by coming out to do it. Most Pros will instead quote their minimum callout charge if this is the case.
Finally, be sure to book your Pro as far in advance as possible. If you try to book your handyman at short notice, outside of standard working hours or at the weekend, your quote will almost certainly be higher.
