When will I receive my delivery?
In the shopping cart, you will receive an Estimated Delivery Date. Please note that this is not a guaranteed delivery date for your order. Some areas may take longer due to the frequency of deliveries to the delivery zip code. Our system calculates this estimated date considering the total amount of time to process your order including: packaging, transit time to the delivery provider, and transit time to the delivery address.
When placing your order, we consider these factors when calculating the Estimated Delivery Date :Order Processing:
When the delivery provider receives your order and is ready to schedule a delivery date, they will attempt to contact you at the telephone number that you provided in your order. At that time, they will let you know what days of the week they are able to deliver to your area. Deliveries will be made between the hours of 8am and 10pm on the delivery day you select. The delivery company will call you prior to the scheduled delivery and will provide you with an approximate time window. The delivery company will make every effort to deliver within the time window provided.
How to prepare for your delivery?
The Delivery Company has been contracted to perform the delivery service to one room of choice at the delivery address. If the delivery cannot be made to this room, the transporters will place your products in an alternate room at the same address. Please make sure there is adequate access and space to complete the delivery – prior to delivery ensure that there is adequate room to make the delivery considering hallways, staircases and elevators.
Who needs to sign for my delivery?

Neither IKEA nor the 3rd party Delivery Company that has been contracted by IKEA to perform the delivery will be held responsible if you decide to hire a 3rd party contractor to accept, receive and sign the handover of items without the notations of visible defects of packaging, damaged items, or missing merchandise.
What am I responsible for upon delivery?
Please be sure to sign the Delivery Order Note in the presence of the Delivery Company representative to indicate your delivery has been received. Examine your order upon delivery to ensure that there are no visible signs of damaged, missing or incorrect pieces. In the event that there are missing, damaged or incorrect packages, please retain the item(s), indicate the problem on the Delivery Note and contact us within 48 hours of your delivery.
