Things to know when it comes to furniture assembly services
Furniture assembly experts can be hired to set up any kind of furniture — from chairs to large bookshelves. You can also ask them to assemble one part or the entire piece; the choice is up to you. Just remember that as the tasks add up, so do the costs. There are several factors that businesses consider when quoting on jobs. These include:
Type of furniture
The size and type of your furniture can greatly affect the final price of your job. For instance, assembling a simple table is much cheaper than, let’s say, a large bed with multiple parts like the frame, the headboard, and the legs.
There are businesses that charge hourly rates for their services. You can expect costs to rise if your job takes longer to complete. Other businesses may also charge a call out fee so make sure to clarify this as well before going ahead with a job.
For an additional fee, some businesses also offer furniture pickup and delivery services as well as furniture disassembly. If you need any of these done, you might want to ask your chosen business if they can help you out; they might have discounted rates for packaged services.
Your location will affect the cost of the job
Queensland businesses charge approximately $45/hr for furniture assembly jobs. Meanwhile, the same type of service costs around $50/hr in Victoria. Residents in New South Wales pay the highest cost for furniture assembly services at about $55/hr.
