IKEA FEAR? Staring at piles of wood, screws, fixings, wooden dowels and those dreaded curved allen keys?

What do We Do?

Do you have that familiar sickly feeling in your stomach knowing that the task ahead is going to take all weekend, result in cuts and grazes,  and you’ll still end up throwing the bits down the garden!! Then you’ll have to admit defeat to your family and friends! We completely understand what you are going through!

Building flatpack furniture is like many other things ls in life – it takes practice, dedication, time and the correct tools.

If you start the job dreading the outcome you’re probably bound to fail.

Better to call us at the start – we’re flatpack geeks – we simply LOVE IT!!

We’ve built so many items from IKEA and other companies over more than 20 years, and it has become second nature to us. We know which bits to take out of the box first, and the correct order in which to assemble pieces. We also have a large stock of those leftover bits (yes it happens to us too!) so we don’t have to go back to IKEA halfway through a job.

For a reasonable fee (either by the hour or fixed price for certain IKEA items), we will come to your home at a time suitable for you and assemble the flatpacks for you. We’ll clear up after ourselves and take away the cardboard.

We are fully insured and CRB checked, so we can collect your keys from an agent or from your office and build your purchases whilst you are working. We can even update you during and after the job via FaceTime or Skype.

We are based close to Canary Wharf for your convenience.

Our Services


The bane of most flatpack DIY’ers – The PAX range at IKEA! Looks simple enough but just how do you hold three sides together whilst fixing the fourth? We LOVE these.


IKEA must sell thousands of these units. One of the most popular items for us to build and install. We’ve fitted all shapes and sizes.


We’ll happily build these for you, leaving the finished products good enough to eat your dinner off!


“Honey have you made the bed yet? ” Such much pressure and so many slats! Leave it to us – you’ll be sleeping like a baby.

Kitchen Units

Feedback from our customers tell us that many builders/kitchen fitters are not willing or able to construct these units from the flatpack state. We will be absolutely delighted to do it for you. We can fit them to the walls as well if required.


Inside or out we just love to assemble. More and more garden furniture is supplied in flatpack form and we love to put them together for you. Includes children’s play equipment too.


Under-rated and under stated. Good storage facilities make everyone’s lives easier – but leave it to us and we’ll make sure it’s sturdy, safe and square.


The perfect dining partner or the friend in the hallway? Leave it to us to lovingly assemble this furniture workhorse.
