It is reasonable to ask a handyman to pick up flat pack furniture from IKEA. We are about 30 miles from the nearest shop. Would this be something most handymen would be willing to undertake or would it be better to arrange the delivery through IKEA. (Picking it up myself is not an option.)
It depends on the handy man but to be fair if you have order it from IKEA yourself then you should have it at your property ready as your handy man would be local to yourself that would be a 60 mile trip before even starting and you might not like the cost of him having to do what might seem a simple pick up it’s his time and fuel also wear and tear he will charge you if he accepts in fetching it

Hi, I think that would be better if you arrange a delivery through IKEA and then call an handyman to fix them, but you can always ask the person if he is willing to collect them at a price obviously, because in the end you will be using his time and petrol for the service.
Yes if they have a chance
Yes absolutely personally I've done dozens
Some handyman services will collect goods for you as a man with a van service. For most it will depend on what has to be collected, where you are and how long it will take them taking into account their own vehicle suitability. Obviously they would charge you for the time to do the collection and fuel if its a longer distance.
Delivery will be easier and convenient, but builder can offer to buy items required for you and install them.
They would do for a reasonable price
We offer a service that we can collect your products from store. Transfer them to your property. Erect the flat pack furniture in a room of your choice and then remove all cars and packaging etc. Kindest regards. Chris.
Arrange for the store to deliver the items , then if they are damaged you can have them exchanged free of charge.
Delivery via IKEA best option
It all depends on the tradesman. If they live local to the store then they can possibly pick this up on your behalf. However, they will charge you extra for this as it’s an extra service & extra time and expense. If you have it delivered instead, this will be cost effective for yourself.
I would pick it up but there would be a pick up charge.
If the handyman would be building the flatpack and would be willing to pickup I don't see why not, but you would assume the quote for the entire job would include his time and fuel for the pickup taken into account and it may or may not be at a higher total cost than the ikea delivery, best to ask for a quote with and without pickup and weigh it up.
you can arrange for a handyman to pick up flatpack furniture from IKEA (providing you give them the order reference number etc). I have been asked to do this before. The handyman may charge you a little extra for collecting the item before assembling, but it all depends on who the handyman is.
Its not out of the ordinary for a handyman to be asked to collect the order before assembling it.
Hope this helps.
Yes most handyman within reason would offer this as part of the service and price the job accordingly.
A handyman will undertake any tasks they feel worthwhile they will not be expected to for just assembly cost alone and would likely charge a fee for the collection. Hope this helps
Depends on the person I myself would do this
They can do but you will get charged for their time to and from Ikea and the carriage of the flat pack, so dont think you are saving on delivery charges
