Richard runs the perfect service. I requested 2 sets of draws from Ikea and some bits and pieces and they were delivered and assembled 5 days later. He gets straight back to e-mails and is a lovely and professional guy. I had two chests of draws built in just half an hour. Its great to have someone take the stress out of Ikea trips and self assembly, great value for money, would use and recommend again! - Bell

Fantastic service! I emailed Richard early on Friday morning and he replied very quickly, I had 2 double pine wardrobes to build, he gave me a quote and was at mine by 10.30 that morning! although the job was more than he had expected it would be he still just continued even cancelling an appointment he had to finish , he did a brilliant job and im so pleased with the end result, I would highly Recommend Richard to anyone, so helpful and efficient , Thank you so much. steph

I am very happy that Richard was able to fit my move in at such short notice. He was punctual and quick and managed to dissemble and reassemble my ikea bed in no time at all. The main point for me though was that he was very helpful and went above and beyond what he was being paid to do (fixing furniture, removing electrical plugs etc). It made moving a much more manageable experience. Thanks! Helen (Hove)

I was pleased to have found Richard. He was reassuring in my situation of buying two small sofas on ebay and trying to arrange pick up and delivery. He communicated very well with me via email and my mobile and the job was done quickly. He was very pleasant when I met him and I was pleased with his service. I have never used this type of service before and I will use Richard again if the need arises.


Just wanted to say thanks again for all your help yesterday, made the day stress free, we really appreciated it.


Hi Richard,

Just wanted to thank you for delivering and building today. I'm really pleased and will definitely be singing your praises to my friends! (Might even go back to Ikea myself now I know it's stress free!)


Great service as always! Thought I'd just add another positive remark on this website for others who may be dubious or have second thoughts. I've used Richard a number of times both for business and for home and he has never let us down. Always polite and pleasant over the phone / email / and in person, I cannot recommend him enough! If there is something else I need, I will be calling him again! Many thanks

Madame Geisha Bar, Brighton

When I made the move to Brighton - I could not have done it without Richard. He moved me from Maidenhead, Berkshire to Kemp Town and was AMAZING. Richard is tireless in his quest for perfection, and stayed until 10.30pm assembling furniture and putting up shelves for me! He hardly stopped all day, and most of the cups of tea/coffee I gave him went cold before he took his first sip! Richard is punctual, efficient, reasonably priced, friendly and I would recommend him to anyone. He is also a mean packer - the amount of stuff he squeezed into his van was amazing -it was like a Rubix Cube. I will definitely be using Richard again and will be recommending him to others. I can guarantee that if you use Richard you'll get 5* brilliance from him. The best thing about the service is that Richard offers a 3 - in - 1 operation - Richard is a man and van, a handyman AND does Ikea runs and assembly. This service most definitely made my move far less stressful than it could have been. Thank you Richard!"

Hi Richard,just a note say thanks for the delivery today.It's an excellent service that you offer.and very professionally executed.I ahve contacted Alek for some help with assembly and will be letting my friends know of your excellent service.

Regards Ian, Hove

Richard, I'll arrange the payment today. Great job and we will have no hesitation in recommending you to everyone we know in Brighton. Many thanks

Hi Richard

I'm just emailing to say thank you for a brilliant service! We have had a lot of work carried out and lots of things delivered etc. over the last few months and I can safely say that using your company was a great experience. You replied to emails promptly and courteously and everything ran smoothly on the day! You'd be surprised at the lack of competence of some people doing simple jobs and it was a real relief when having the chairs delivered went without a hitch.

Thanks very much

I'm sure we'll be in contact again now that we know about your service!

April, Portslade

Many thanks to you and Alex for a brilliant job.

You worked so hard and have transformed our bedroom in a matter of hours.

I wouldn’t hesitate a moment to recommend you to anyone; you certainly live up to your testimonials and provide an excellent service at a fair rate, and it was a pleasure to have you working in our home.

We are delighted.

Rosemary Shirley

Pleasure doing business with you. Fast, reliable, much easier than going ourselves - will use again

Dear Richard,

I just wanted to write to thank you for collecting and delivering a wardrobe form IKEA for me.

My wife tells me that you were most helpful and polite. In addition, you were able to accommodate us at the last minute which was fantastic as this was most convenient for us.

Once again, many thanks for providing a great service at a reasonable price.

Best Wishes

Keith Fernay

Thanks for the smooth transition of our ikea furniture. The delivery details and times were well organised, flexible and punctual and saved us more than half of the delivery cost.

Ruth Coles said

Absolutely brilliant.Arrived on time,friendly,polite and effecient.Despite it taking longer than expected (my fault) I was charged no more than the original quote and even the rubbish was taken away.Naturally we all worry about whether the person we choose will be reliable and good but I can honestly say I would not hesitate in recommending Richard to my friends and family and anyone who will listen !!! Many thanks again.

Sarah Jones said

Excellent service! After experience the notoriously bad IKEA customer services, Richard delivered my item within 2days, at a time that suited me (unlike IKEA's vague delivery service that can take up to 3weeks!). I have always driven down to IKEA to collect goods (spending hours in traffic and parting with more money than I intended, due to impulse purchases of unnecessary candles etc!) Richard is the perfect alternative for those that have small cars, small time frames and small budgets (candles can come to a lot!). I'd recommend him to anyone and will certainly be using him again. Thanks again. Sarah.

Proffesional team and competetive rates. I was lucky to find out about their service for my eBay delivery. Thank you guys.

Ed & Joelle said

There are now so many 'man and van' services on the Internet, choosing one could be very hit or miss. We were going to hire a van ourselves but I am so glad we didn't! From the very first call to Richard he was polite and friendly which completely reassured me. He responded to emails and texts very promptly. He arrived on time and helped take all the stress out of what could have been a very stressful furniture move. The carpeted van is also a nice touch, especially when moving expensive furniture. Nothing was too much trouble and I would definitely recommend him and wouldn't hesitate to use his services again. Thank you Richard!

Richard and his colleague were prompt, efficient and cost effective.

They went beyond what was expected sorting out issues on our IKEA purchases.

We would not hesitate in calling Richard again or recommending him to friends

and family

He presents himself as a trustworthy reliable worker.

Excellent service! Thanks for your help, now I have a great room now! Very fast and professional work, even though the weather was awful! Thanks again.

Hi Richard. Just wanted to say many thanks......Alec was great and has fixed my wonky doors. Really good chap.

Jenny, Hove

In the middle of heavy snowfall with trecherous roads I still got my order on time (actually much earlier than I expected which was a bonus). Have already recommended to friends. THANKS!!

Siobhan, Brighton

I was really impressed with the service that I received from Richard on 3/12/10, particularly considering the heavy snowfall. He was punctual, polite and helpful - I would most definitely recommend him to others. Thanks!

Catherine, Shoreham by Sea

Hi Richard,

Just wanted to write a few sentences of my appriciation for organising the delivery of my mattress and bed (twice!).

'I'd have no hesitation in recommending delivery to friends and family using Richard's service. He delivered my bed and mattress on time, returned a unwanted item and helped me lift a double bed and mattress into my flat'.

'After accidentally ordering a mattress too big for my bed (Doh! My fault) I was really impressed when Richard purchased a new mattress (that fitted) four days earlier than we had agreed - after 4 weeks sleeping on an air mattress, it was really appricated'.

Feel free to use my name and the comments on your website.

All the best,

Tom Ware, Hove

Hi Richard,

I just wanted to thank you for the Ikea run yesterday. I picked up the goods fine from the office and am delighted with the both the duvet sets and the glasses. Thanks for such a speedy service and for making the whole process so easy! No doubt we’ll be in touch again in the future.

With best wishes for the festive season,

Sarah, Brighton

Richard has just visited IKEA for me, purchased a bookcase, delivering and assembling it. All of his communication by text and phone was polite, clear and concise, his timekeeping excellent and his service energetic and efficient. I thoroughly recommend him, and would happily work with him again.

Christine M, Hove

Dear Richard

Once again, thank you for being able to solve the IKEA delivery problem and for making the whole process much simpler and smoother.

I look forward to hearing from you.
