7 Reasons to Hire a Professional for Your Furniture Assembly Needs in Dallas, TX


Whether you're outfitting your new home in Dallas, your first apartment, or giving an old room a much-needed update, it can be so exciting to buy new furniture. You eagerly await its arrival after weeks of looking for the perfect sofa or hutch. Then, when you finally get your hands on the perfect addition to your living room or den, you feel it—the frustration at having to deal with furniture assembly before you can enjoy your new furniture.

We've all been there, struggling to get boxes open—let alone lift heavy items into your place. Then, you finally have everything laid out on the floor and are ready to get to work. You manage to find the instructions and—everything goes to pieces.

Navigating assembly instructions can be frustrating for the best of us. Too often, it looks like the screws you have don't match what's in the picture, or the Allen key provided by the manufacturer doesn't actually fit into any of the pieces.

Or worse, you're trying to make sense of instructions in a language you don't understand or fit together parts only to realize you don't have the appropriate tools.

Our question is: Why put yourself through this hassle? Wouldn't it be much more enjoyable to let a professional handle your furniture assembly in Dallas? That way, you can take an hour or two to catch up on work or enjoy a cup of coffee while the experts assemble your furniture for you. Instead of dealing with the stress of putting your furniture together, you'll be able to enjoy it in comfort.

In fact, reducing stress is just one of the many reasons why it's worthwhile to hire a pro to take care of your furniture assembly in Dallas. To discover the many benefits of hiring the Dallas handyman team at Mr. Handyman of Dallas to put together your new bed, desk or chair, keep reading.

7 Reasons to Leave Furniture Assembly in Dallas to the Pros

Now, on to the good part! You may be thinking that you can handle furniture assembly on your own, and you're probably right. Yet, there are numerous benefits to hiring an expert—as you'll discover if you keep reading.

1. Save Time

Perhaps the greatest benefit to hiring professionals for furniture assembly in Dallas is that you save time. Your time is precious, and, likely, you don't have a ton of spare time to waste setting up a new entertainment system or sectional. This is especially the case if you've just moved into a new house. You have enough on your plate rerouting your mail, unpacking seemingly endless boxes and making sure your kids’ rooms are set up. Even if you just bought furniture because you needed something new, between work, caring for your family and finding time for yourself, why would you want to waste hours of your time? (Let's be real, in untrained hands, even the seemingly simplest shelf takes forever to assemble). Give yourself the gift of time by hiring our pro team. Focus on what you need to do and let us get everything set up for you.

2. Reduce Stress

Furniture assembly is stressful. Even if you think it will be fun—put on some music, grab a coffee, it'll be great, right? –the reality is that 30 minutes in, you've likely hit a wall. When nothing seems to fit right, or you don't have the correct tools, and suddenly you're on YouTube with good intentions but got derailed by funny cat videos...forget it. It just doesn't make sense to get stressed over a completely avoidable situation. Life is stressful enough. Hire a team of Dallas experts instead.

3. Access/Mobility Concerns

Our team often gets called out to help Dallas residents who have access or mobility concerns with their assembly needs. Many seniors don't have family living nearby who can help put together furniture or even lift it into place. Likewise, if you've been injured recently and can't move heavy items, then you really should hire a technician to give you a hand. There is no reason why seniors, diff-abled individuals, or people dealing with injuries should be prevented from enjoying their home by outfitting it with beautiful and functional furniture. Asking for help is easy and rewarding.

4. Years of Experience

There is a reason why assembling IKEA furniture is considered a relationship test. Because it really will push you to the limit—mentally, emotionally, and even physically. How often have you tried to put together something with your friend or partner, only to give each other the silent treatment 10 minutes later?

Meanwhile, our pro technicians have the years of experience needed to seamlessly tackle assembly projects in Dallas. Many times, we have been put to the test and are familiar with how major manufacturers lay out their instructions. Each of our technicians is a pro at discerning confusing instructions and has the patience to tackle all projects with the utmost professionalism and respect.

Pro Tip: Go Custom!

Our team can expertly handle installing prefabricated designs, such as cabinets, shelves and drawers. But did you know many of our technicians are also experienced with carpentry service? We're happy to create a custom project that perfectly suits your unique needs and design vision. Plus, that way, you skip the entire process of having to search for the right piece, order it, and wait months for it to arrive at your door.

5. Correct Tools and Equipment

Have you ever been reading through instructions only to discover that you need a power tool—that you don't have—to put everything together? Then, you drive all the way to the nearest Dallas hardware store, search for an appropriate power tool (there's quite a range of options, even for something simple like a drill), buy it, drive back home, and—you guessed it—spend the next hour of your life putting together furniture.

Not only is this a waste of time and can be fairly stressful if you don't usually use power tools, but it's also a waste of money. If you haven't been using a power tool this whole time, it's unlikely you're going to start using it now. Rather, the tool will just sit in your garage or shed, collecting dust.

Contrarily, our technicians are outfitted with the best tools available. We have everything needed to put your particular items together. Sometimes, Allen keys simply don't cut it. When power tools are needed, trust the process to the professionals.

6. Safety Matters

Anytime you work on your home, there is a chance that you could get injured. While most Dallas homeowners think of climbing ladders or working outside as common instances where one could get hurt, even something as seemingly benign as furniture assembly can also cause injury.

Furniture is often heavy and lifting it could put a strain on your back and joints. Not to mention, dropping furniture could break toes (and damage the item). Also, tools—especially power tools—can easily cause injury if mishandled. Sometimes that could be hammering your thumb by accident, or it could be much worse while using a power tool or utility knife. Finally, if you neglect to wear proper safety equipment, you open the door to a range of injuries. At a bare minimum, you should wear safety gloves and glasses while moving your items or using power tools.

Yet, do you know what gives you a zero percent risk of injury while assembling furniture? Hiring the experts! Each of our technicians is thoroughly trained in proper safety procedures. From lifting heavy items to physically putting the furniture together, we'll be careful to ensure the job goes smoothly.

7. Avoid Cleanup

This benefit to hiring a professional furniture assembler in Dallas may just be the cherry on top! You don't have to deal with the cleanup. Furniture assembly can get pretty messy. You may find Styrofoam littered across your floor, or bits of cardboard shrapnel seem to be everywhere. Also, your current furniture may have been moved around to make room for putting together the new item. All of this can be skillfully cleaned by the pros at Mr. Handyman of Dallas. Not only do we take care to maintain a clean work area—even going so far as to wear booties over our shoes to protect your floors—but we also will leave your home looking as clean as we found it.

Not only does tidying up upon completing the job illustrate our respect for you and your home, but it also demonstrates our dedication to customer safety. Leaving tools and boxes lying around can be a tripping hazard, and we'd never want to do anything that could bring harm to you or your loved ones.
