What is TaskRabbit?

TaskRabbit is a platform that allows you to hire trusted and reliable people, called “Taskers” to help you tackle your to-do list. Everything from grocery shopping and cleaning, to more specific needs like bartending your birthday party or wrapping all your Christmas gifts. TaskRabbit is available on the web, and through an app. According to the TaskRabbit website, they provide same-day service that “instantly connects you with skilled Taskers to help with odd-jobs and errands, so you can be more productive, every day.”

TaskRabbit and IKEA Partnership

IKEA has teamed up with TaskRabbit, which means you can now hire a Tasker to assemble your IKEA furniture for a flat rate. Taskers can also help with mounting IKEA frames, window coverings, mirrors, and shelves. Or, if you’ve purchased an IKEA light, like a ceiling fixture or wall sconce, a TaskRabbit Tasker will help you install it.

How to book TaskRabbit Services for Your IKEA Furniture

Booking TaskRabbit services to help with your IKEA purchase could not be easier. Visit the TaskRabbit website, or download the app, and click on the IKEA services section. Enter the address where the furniture assembly or mounting services are needed. From there, you can select the furniture piece you need assembled. The furniture is broken down into categories like “living room”, “bedroom” and “sofas” – making it easy to find the specific piece you purchased.
