I dont think it's a rip off - its cheaper than the fuel to drive there for me, never mind back.

I'd have to rent a van to get large items home too.
Still a rip off even at half price

Each to their own, but £35 for delivery is a bargain for most people. I recently ordered a sofa and table, 16 boxes arrived, they (their was two delivery drivers) unloaded them into the room of my choice all I had to do was open the door for them. Friendly service, a call before arriving so I'm not siting around waiting all day (on a Sunday no less) . I'd pay that again for the service. 1/2 price, makes it even better value for money. Also to add, there was no way I could of fitted that lot in my little car, nor would I be able to lug that lot into a van hire on my own.

Sure they could offer a "free delivery", but someone would have to pay for the van/delivery staff. The only way to do that would be increase the prices of the stuff they sell. I think charging for delivery is much more transparent than free delivery ever is... (plus most furnishing shops do still charge for delivery)

Agreed. I like Ikea as a supplier, I like their products but I HATE the experience of shopping in store, so even at 35.00 it's better than a 80-mile round trip and having to traipse round the store collecting bits of my furniture from the warehouse like some giant-sized jigsaw puzzle.
We used them for home delivery, you can also pay £10 to have them pick the items for you which is great also as our delivery had over 100 items on It, would of been there a few days otherwise
Good to know.

Heat and thanks....

You want free delivery? go John Lewis if you can afford it m8.


Because JL are the only retailer to offer free delivery? Ikea are in a minority here. It’s accepted that that’s their delivery cost, but for most retailers it’s not standard to have it that high. No need to make this about rich man/poor man.

Agree especially when Argos and most others only charge a few pounds.

agreed

for the service, £17.50 is a steal. £35 is a bit steep but as you say, can't really do it yourself for less if you dont have a van.

Argos actually charge 14.95 for a "large item" delivery.

It's still half the price of Ikea so I take your point, and appliances (and many other items) are delivered free or for about four quid.

Where the hell do you live? £17.50 is 3.16 gallons. @40mpg that's 126 miles! Even at 32mpg that's over 100 miles.

What's it like living at John O' Groats!

Yes. But they are claiming their store is 2.5/3 times as far away.
Yours is 40 miles one way. There's is well over 100 miles each way!

Just seemed a little far fetched.

i don't see how this is far fetched. the furthest north store in Scotland is in Edinburgh (apart from a Click & Collect in Aberdeen). I am 156 miles away from there so it definitely saves me money + i would have to also order a van for the items I want to buy.

There is Glasgow for people in the West and pickup from Aberdeen for people in the North. This cover the most populated areas of Scotland without having to travel over 100 miles. Yes there will be people who live miles away (like yourself) but then everything is miles away.

aberdeen is still 80 miles each way for me and I don't live in the middle of nowhere. There is a lot further north than Aberdeen too. I was just pointing out that its not really far fetched - but to order big items most people would need to order a van anyway which is way more than the cost of the delivery no matter where you live

As you are such an expert on logistics chains, how much should Ikea delivery cost?
Better to have delivery as a separate charge than have it incorporated in to the price of the products. I hate the "free" delivery mentality (I think it probably started on eBay).

Well the only town of note up there is Inverness and at less than 50k people it's pretty small (my local borough council covers 2.5 time that)

Anyway my point was not many people (from the population) live 120 miles or so from an IKEA store.

As for the deal as there are limited numbers of IKEA store for some it will be a fantastic deal due to distance. For other not so much.

Some retailers change loads. Wickes for example charge £95 for over 60 miles. Where B&Q (over £350) charge nothing.

It all comes down to what you can absorb in to your profit margin.

yeah exactly i think its a great deal and even at £30 I would be happy to pay it - cant think of anything less fun than hiring a van for the day to travel to ikea - not a fan of wandering round it, so no matter where i lived i would pay for the delivery for the convenience. I'm waiting to place my order but as i'm moving to a new house their website isn't recognising my postcode

Yes sorry forgot you had a cathedral so you are a city. But real cities have an IKEA!
It's a rip off. They sometimes still charge £35 even though the delivery is in the same city and literally just a few miles up the road. My local charity shop charges £5 within the same vicinity.

And surely if you're ordering that much stuff it should be cheap jot £35.

Getting a new sofa from there and this makes it even better so heat from me! £17.50 would never get you a van to sort it ourselves where we are so thanks for the heads up!

They're so good, was having the house done they put it all in the right rooms and built it. I was trying to build this bed from Argos and I was struggling so they said they'd do it for me like thanks so much
If you live miles from a store it's a good deal if you live round the corner it's a rip off, hope this clears things up
Paid 35 delivery for over £1000 worth of items 7 weeks ago. They failed to deliver 1 of the items and smashed up my door frame to the room they delivered the items to. THEN covered the smashed up box with another box (not telling me about the damage they had caused) and it has taken this long just to get someone out to assess it. Not once has ikea offered me the delivery charge back or any refund. Joke customer services who are bloody rude too.

You must have got lucky with the delivery drivers, we also had 5 IKEA wardrobe frames delivered and they refused to take them upstairs. I had to unpack all the boxes in the living room and carry them up myself on piece at a time.
I've found the Ikea drivers really helpful recently. Far more helpful than the Ikea website which has been messing me around for the past few days, not able to calculate delivery for all items and breaking as a result
