If you've purchased IKEA furniture in the past, you probably already know how hard it can be to assemble. When you purchase items in the store or online, Ikea will be able to book an appointment as soon as the next day.

Following Ikea's acquisition of TaskRabbit past year, the furniture company is introducing an assembly service to some of its U.S. stores.

TaskRabbit has already partnered with Ikea in the United Kingdom, but the new services are now available at six stores in the Bay Area and tri-state area in New York: Brooklyn, Emeryville, East Palo Alto, Long Island, Paramus, and Elizabeth before expanding to other Ikea stores in the US. The company has tried their best to simplify the assembly experience with cute, straightforward instructions and fancy snap-together joints, but some people maybe just don't want to put their egos on the line, and would be happy to pay a flat rate (starting at $36 depending on type of item) for a tasker to do it for them.

Customers can start to book assistance through IKEA's website wherever TaskRabbit is available. A store-branded rewards credit card, the Ikea Projekt Card, is on the way this spring as well.
