If a person’s job is to assemble furniture on site or on assembly lines, then he is called a furniture assembler. There is no special education to become a furniture assembler except perhaps for experience. This is because furniture assembly simply takes reading instructions and following them meticulously and using the right tools for assembling the parts together. Before, when we need furniture, we simply buy them already assembled, and most of the furniture that was available for purchase were wooden furniture. Today, the furniture purchased in stores is made of pieces of the furniture which you have to assemble yourself. There are three ways by which a furniture assembler can work and they are as a self-employed assembler, as a worker for a furniture assembly company, or work for a furniture store offering assembly services.
It is a do it yourself furniture assembly package that you will receive if you purchase furniture in stores today. The office furniture, home furniture, or exercise equipment that you bought might not be assembled, and they don’t have furniture assembly services. You can either do the assembling yourself or else hire a furniture assembler.
Below are some tips in hiring a furniture assembler.
Hire a professional furniture assembler if you are hiring paid services. Choose a furniture assembler who is not new in the business but has been assembling different types of furniture for many years now. Talk to the assembler to know more about him, how long he has been assembling furniture and if he can give you references, then you need to call them to check him out.
The furniture assembler should offer you with some kind of guarantee for a certain period of time.
Check for professional liability insurance from the furniture assembler. So if there is any damages that happen while assembling the furniture then the insurance can cover for it.
You should ask the furniture assembler if he charges a flat fee or a per hour rate. Chose a furniture assembler that charges in thirty minute increments after the first hour so that you can save if it extends for less than thirty minutes. You may also inquire about extra services that the furniture assembler offers such as carrying heavy boxes to where the furniture is to be assembled, putting furniture in place, service charge for gas, etc.
You can only use the furniture that you have bought from a store only after you have found the right furniture assembler that can assemble the furniture perfectly.
