Have you ever hired, or considered hiring, an assembly company? An assembly company will come to your home and assemble furniture that you’ve bought which need to be put together. I’ve had clients use these companies to assemble file cabinets from Staples and utility shelves. Their prices are usually very reasonable, and it is typically a price per a piece of furniture. Many companies specialize in particular brands of furniture (e.g., Ikea). Because this is their expertise, assembly companies are much faster at putting together an item then you, me or other members of our family. My experiences with assembly companies have been very positive.
In addition to hiring assembly companies, my clients have found The Container Store’s Elfa installation services to be another time saving service. Elfa is one of the more versatile tools in The Container Store, especially for starting over and cleaning out those closets.
