5 Reasons to Hire a Handyman for Furniture Assembly

New furniture can be an exciting investment. You do your research, pour over the options, select the perfect item, bring it home—and with all that excitement, it's easy to forget that you promised yourself last time you would never buy another unassembled piece of furniture.

From confusing instructions that seem like they're written in ancient hieroglyphics to that virtually useless Allen key, furniture assembly can quickly turn into a major headache. You get halfway through and realize you've put the biggest piece on backward, or you can't find the right size of screw anywhere (check under the sofa), or worst of all, you get it all assembled flawlessly—and then realize you can't fit it through the doorway of the room it's supposed to go in.

Do the words "some assembly required" cause you to break into a cold sweat? Help is on the way! When you're in desperate need of furniture assembly service, you can rely on the service professionals at Mr. Handyman of Frisco to get any item put together correctly and efficiently. This guide will explain five reasons why you should let us take this unpleasant task off your hands so all you need to do is relax and enjoy your brand-new, perfectly assembled item.

What Does a Furniture Assembler Do?

They assemble furniture—next question! Just kidding, of course. Basically, furniture assembly service providers take the burden of getting various items put together off your shoulders—and yes, that includes IKEA furniture assembly. But it can be more complex than that. Not everything is meant to be put together by a layperson at home, because it requires specialized tools and skills to actually handle it properly. Our service pros have all the tools and knowledge they'll need ready to go, so you can rest assured they'll get the job done right.

Items Mr. Handyman Can Assemble

Here are a few examples of the many things we can put together for your Frisco home or business.

  • Sofa or couch
  • Bed frame, including bunk beds & futons
  • Kitchen table or dining table
  • Kitchen cart
  • Kitchen island & cabinets
  • Desk
  • Chairs (ergonomic, dining, etc.)
  • Recliner
  • Office furniture
  • Bookcases & shelving units
  • Entertainment center
  • Storage rack
  • Outdoor furniture
  • Fencing
  • Bicycle & other sporting equipment
  • Play equipment
  • Grill

This list is far from exhaustive, so if there's some other item you're struggling with, just give us a call and let us know! Whatever it is, our assembly pros will get it put together.

Why You Should Leave It to the Pros

Not sure if you need the services of a professional furniture assembler? Here are some compelling reasons to let Mr. Handyman take care of it for you.

1. Save Time

You likely don't have loads of free time to spend on a frustrating project, especially if you're in the middle of moving houses or home remodeling. We'll save you time by doing it for you, but we'll also save time by working efficiently. While you may have to stop halfway through to run to the hardware store and pick up tools you didn't know you would need, or to look up a YouTube video explaining in detail how to get that stupid screw into that impossible-to-reach hole, we'll be able to push through and get it done quickly, so we can get out of your way and let you enjoy your new acquisition.

2. Years of Experience

Even things that can supposedly be assembled by anyone can really test your patience. Our handymen have wrestled with many baffling tasks over the years, and that furniture assembly experience definitely comes in handy for interpreting hard-to-follow instruction manuals. But experience with repair trades and specializations such as carpentry really come in handy too. For example, we can install prefabricated kitchen cabinets right out of the box—but we also have the expertise to customize them, so they are more specifically tailored to suit your needs or to better fill the space you have available. We also have specialized furniture assembly experience to handle complicated items such as motorized beds and other mobility aids.

3. Proper Tools & Equipment

You may not have a well-equipped, organized tool box at your fingertips, but we do. Buying or renting tools is an expensive hassle, especially if you're not likely to use them much in the future. Our handymen come equipped with everything they'll need to get your furniture item put together, so you can toss that Allen key that came in the box straight into your junk drawer—you know, just in case you need it someday.

4. Safety is Key

Furniture is heavy, assembly is awkward, and power tools are hazardous in the wrong hands. There are a lot of ways to injure yourself when you're putting stuff together, but our service pros have the training and safety equipment to minimize risk to themselves and others so you can stay safe. And, while we're confident it won't come to this, our handymen are fully insured with workers' compensation and general liability, so you won't be on the hook for costs if something does go wrong.

5. Don't Have to Clean Up

This might just be the best reason of all. The average furniture assembly can get pretty messy, so someone is going to have to clean up afterward—and that person should not be you. Our handymen take precautions to minimize the mess and always thoroughly clean up after themselves so you don't have to worry about it. We'll leave your home in the same condition we found it—or even better!
