Hey, guys! It's me again I'll go straight to the point - I need recommendations and advice about a service for delivering furniture. We moved houses and have a new second bedroom to furnish and a larger living room (I'm bragging just a little bit :D) that needs additional furnishing as well. We have chosen what to buy but here comes the problem. We want everything to arrive at the same time because we have friends ready to come help with the setting up of the new furniture. We just need someone to deliver everything to our flat.
We researched services that do that and we found a couple that have reasonable quotes. For now, we have decided on using another company and not Ikea but nothing is set in stone yet. There's a company called Fantastic... something it was that also sounds good.
Has anyone used them? What would you recommend? Another company or service? We're open for anything.
The company you've highlighted, is that because it's Ikea furniture that you've bought? If so, Ikea deliver anyway and on a day convenient to you. They'll give you a date but you can choose to rearrange it. If you now have a spare room everything could be stored until you're friends arrive to help with assembly
Lovely to have more space and great fun thinking about design
Hey, Bellatrix! Yes, the furniture we've chosen are from Ikea but we don't want to use their service. I read about their service and the popular opinion is that it is too expensive and there are always problems with the execution of the service, so we decided to use another company. This one as well as a few others that we looked up, offer decent quotes, and this one had better reviews.
But I just wanted to ask for your opinion as well, because I don't really trust everything I see online.
So, you're getting their furniture but you want another company to collect and put it together for you? sorry if I got the wrong end of the stick
I've never had a problem with Ikea delivery to be honest and my husband is the king of putting stuff together so sorry can't help as we've never needed a 3rd party service. Post some photos of your new rooms when you've done, love having a nose around peoples houses

I have never used services like you describe as delivery is easy to sort on a convenient day to suit and often included in the price so why pay more? Flat pack Ikea furniture has driven us mad as the instructions have sometimes not been clear and it can take hours and patience to put it all together. Wish I had friends like yours who are willing to come and help! Good Luck!
Hey, guys! I just want to thank you all for the advice. However, we went with our first choice and booked the service. It was a hard and long weekend but we were a big team and did almost everything! I'm so tired but also so happy
