However, you may be wondering if IKEA will make deliveries to apartments. Here is everything I have managed to find out!

Does IKEA Deliver to Apartments?

Yes, IKEA will deliver furniture such as mattresses, couches, tables, etc, to apartments and units located on higher floors of an apartment building. IKEA delivery workers will also be able to deliver flat-pack furniture up stairwells or in elevators as long as there is ample room.

Additionally, since IKEA shipping is a paid service, IKEA delivery drivers will typically go above and beyond to help you get your furniture into your apartment, even if it is in a difficult location upstairs.

How Fast Is IKEA Home Delivery?

How Fast Is IKEA Home Delivery?

Typically, smaller IKEA deliveries of parcels will take 1 to 3 days. Larger orders, such as flat pack sets of furniture may take slightly longer (3-5 business days), as they may require the use of a larger delivery vehicle.

However, for an extra cost, you can choose express delivery for larger orders, which will speed up the process to within 1 to 3 days.

How Much Does IKEA Delivery Cost?

IKEA delivery costs will vary due to a number of factors, including the size of your delivery, the delivery method, and how far you are from your nearest distribution center.

IKEA delivery customers can choose to have their furniture constructed within their home by specialized staff, the cost for this service generally starts at $36 to $450, with it costing more as you add more items to be assembled.

Can You Return An IKEA Delivery?

Yes, however, you may need to make your return in person, at the order and collection point at your nearest IKEA store.

You should make sure to bring your order confirmation and delivery receipt, as well as the payment card that you paid for your products.

Your refund will only be issued to you once the item has arrived back with IKEA, and once they have verified your original purchase. Thus, you should expect your refund to take slightly longer than usual.

If your order has not yet been dispatched, you can also cancel the order from the “Manage and track my order” page.

If you cancel your order within a good time, you may be able to receive your refund instantly, so make sure to cancel your order within a good time if you wish to.

Does IKEA Refund The Delivery Fee?

Does IKEA Refund Delivery Fee?

No. If your items have been fully delivered, and you wish to return any number of your items, you will only be refunded the cost of the items.

You will not be refunded for the cost of delivery, as that service can be considered “used”, unlike your items.

If you have just made an IKEA order, you might also be happy to know that most of their furniture comes with its own set of tools.


Yes. IKEA will make deliveries to apartments. Costs may vary depending on the number of items, as well as the shipping method and distance.
