This company is everything it says it will be. Eric, the owner and his team drive to Ikea for you, pick up your furniture, deliver it to your home and then build it for you in record time. There were a few Ikea snafus and Eric and team handled them professionally and graciously. Eric and the team not only assemble furniture, they are true handy people can do anything from hanging photos to designing and building a kitchen. I never, ever write Yelp reviews but I couldn't help myself because this company is so great. Eric and his team are affordable, reliable and just really good people. I highly, highly recommend them! This makes me want to order more often from Ikea!
Great experience with IDA Flatpack!! They were incredibly responsive in assessing my shopping list, providing me the most competitive quote within a few hours and getting all the insurance information my building needed in a timely manner. On the day of, when it turned out that the IKEA store was out of stock of a couple of pieces that I needed, they arranged to come back later in the week week to drop off the remaining items and make sure I was 100% set up. Even when there were some IKEA defects in the parts that were provided, they went out of their way to go back to the store to make sure that my final assembled product was something I was happy with.
In terms of the assembly process, Andre was the best! He was incredibly friendly, responsive and respectful, and clearly an expert at IKEA products (no need for instruction manuals or anything, he just put in his earbuds and went to work!). He worked super quickly and efficiently, but did a great job. On a prior move I had tried another IKEA delivery and assembly service (with great Yelp reviews) that had charged by the hour and took over 6 hours for four people who didn't speak English to put together a similar job since they were fumbling with instruction manuals and didn't know what they were doing, resulting in labor charges that were almost double what I had originally been quoted. The experience with Andre and IDA was like night and day! From now on I will only be using IDA Flatpack for my future IKEA (or move-out disassembly) projects.
At first, my mother and I decided that buying directly from Ikea's website and having it delivered was the best option. Indeed, we scoffed at the notion that putting it together would be incredible difficult. However, after doing research on my own I learned that Ikea was incredible unreliable when it comes to delivering the furniture. But, I found IDA Flatpack.
I sent my shopping list, phone number and preferred date of delivery and within a day Eric got back to me. Eric and Jamal were incredibly nice and efficient with shopping, delivery, and assembly. Payment was simple with a debit card and Eric provided me with all the Ikea receipts.
Jamal took around 1-2 hours to fully assemble 3 bookshelves, a chair, and a desk. He refused all help and did it by himself.
In all, I'd say that working with IDA saved me a lot of time and stress. I would highly recommend the services that Eric and the rest of the guys use.
