This is the home page for HJÄLP, an Ikea assembly and delivery service.  I established my service in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2010.  As of June 2013 I will be available in New Hampshire.

PRICING:  Project charges for most of New Hampshire will be $20 per hour. For an estimate I need to know what city you are in, and the article numbers and quantity of the pieces you want assembled. Estimates via email are free of charge. There is a $40 minimum for coming to your location. Want pictures hung? Shelves installed? Room painted? No problem. Just include them on the list of things to be completed and I’ll price the entire project and put it in writing.

I arrive with my own tools and 20 years of experience as a carpenter, not to mention a degree in scenic design and construction.

PROCESS:  I follow the steps in the assembly manual.  If you want your pieces handled in a different manner please let me know before we get started.  Custom builds are not always advisable.

Many Ikea assembly manuals depict attaching the item to the wall.  If you would like items attached to the wall I’m happy to do what I can, but it’s sensible to expect some contingency plans in the event the walls are made of a material that crumbles easily.

REASSEMBLY:  I do NOT reassemble used furniture.  No exceptions.  My practice is limited to new furniture only.

CANCELLATION POLICY:  24 hours notice is requested.   If you cancel with less notice the $40 minimum is required.  Same day appointments require a $40 non-refundable deposit.  The $40 is applied to the balance of total charges.

PAYMENT: Payment is due at the time services are rendered. I accept cash and Paypal.  Unfortunately my credit card processing is not available right now.  If using Paypal, I can give you some tips for transferring the money without fees.  I do NOT accept checks. No exceptions.
