Top Shelf Assembly related questions

Yes, you can! Our IKEA assembly service makes it possible for you to get IKEA furniture assembled wherever and whenever you need it. For those seeking a clean, multi-purpose standing shelf, IKEA KALLAX shelves are a good option. The IKEA VITTSJO is perfect as a display case for odd trinkets and knick-knacks, while the IKEA FJALLBO is the ideal bar nook and liquor storage. The IKEA LACK ALSO provides the best minimalistic look, while the IKEA IVAR is for those seeking a more wooden finish.
Storage shelf units are definitely the most popular assembly and installation services available, but you can also have different pieces done as well. If you need extra closet space, then you can have a cabinet assembly or wardrobe assembly done for you. You can even have dressers and mobile kitchen carts assembled in your home! Just let us know exactly what you need when posting your task, and we'll handle the rest.
Our Taskers make it a point to assemble and install your shelving units properly the first time around so you won't have to worry about putting them together yourself as soon as you run out of storage space. What's more, we can also assist with furniture delivery and bring you the flat-packs you need straight to your doorstep.
Shelf assembly services generally require very few tools, needing only your basic set of screwdrivers, hammers, and drills. For simple set-ups, an assembler will usually have their own set to use, but any additional equipment of yours can come in handy for more seamless construction. With more complex installations that require power tools, however, you may have to mention that you need them to bring their own, especially if you don't have any power tools on hand.
The regular shelf units are generally easy to assemble, requiring about 20 minutes to an hour for completion. These are typically dependent, however, on the unit's size, the complexity of the arrangement, and the tools needed to finish the task. Installations that require drilling and hammering may take a bit more time, especially when installing on walls close to plumbing systems.
Yes, you can also book a furniture disassembly service through Airtasker and have an expert disassemble your shelves.. Whether you're replacing your current shelves or relocating to a new home, you'll need to disassemble them for more accessible storage or safer transport. For more complex disassembly needs, such as shelves nailed into walls, you may have to indicate the necessary details when posting your task.

What do shelf assembly services include?

Storage is one of the essential facets of any facility. Whether in a commercial or residential lot, a presence of ample storage space is a hallmark of decent design. If your home or workplace lacks accessible cabinets or drawers for storage, consider installing shelving units instead.

There are many DIY shelf assembly kits in the market, all available for purchase at your nearest furniture store. However, you may not have the time to put one together on your own. When you book a shelf assembly service, your assembler can cover various shelf storage assembly for home or office installation purposes. To give you a better idea, here's what we can help you with:

Shelf unit assembly

The most immediate shelf assembly service you can get is shelf unit assembly. Usually composed of wooden implements, these can either be assembled as a standalone piece or as a wall installation fixture. Having a shelving unit assembly done includes constructing display shelves, storage shelves, or even cabinet shelves.

Metal shelf assembly

Metal shelves can be quite versatile as you can use them to put your pantry staples in the kitchen or your towels and other bath essentials in your bathroom. Not only do they provide easy storage, but they're also sturdy enough to carry heavier items. Whether you choose to have a 4-layer metal shelf or wall-mounted metal shelving, our assemblers can put them together for you according to the manufacturer's specifications.

Bookcase Assembly

Our bookcase assembly service is ideal for bookworms who want functional storage space for all their precious times. It can be as simple as a wall bookshelf installation or as big as a 5-shelf bookcase assembly. While these are often made of wood for the sole purpose of book storage, a lot of people use bookcases as a display cabinet for their unique trinkets and knick-knacks as well!

Cube Storage Assembly

Cube storages are some of the more innovative DIY projects you can easily install in your home. Composed of modular cubes, these can be set-up to form varying shapes and sizes of storage space. With a cube storage assembly, your assembler can help you set this up for any need, be it as a regular storage-type, as a wardrobe double, or even as a stackable storage display shelf.
