These are typically dependent, however, on the unit's size, the complexity of the arrangement, and the tools needed to finish the 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.
