From one fitter in one city to over 100 fitters nationwide, our journey so far:

2006: October

We started as Flatpack Furniture Assembly in 2006 and were a one man band with just one fitter in the Newcastle area.

2007: August

Ok, so our name didn't exactly roll off the tongue so we rebranded as buildmyflatpacks.com and opened our new website and operated throughout the North East.

2008: January

When we started getting more enquiries from the London area than we did in our local area, we spotted an opportunity to offer a low cost furniture assembly service and recruited experienced fitters to cover the London area.

2008: August

Despite a very challenging market due to the recession we continued to grow and soon offered a nationwide service. During this period we slashed our costs and prices and customers continued to use our service.

2008: December

We expanded to service Ireland with fitters in Dublin and Cork and allowed customers in Ireland to get affordable flat pack assembly.

2009: November

As the recession hit we reduced prices further and despite many competitors closing down we still experienced low customers number so we took the difficult discision to suspend our Ireland operation and all regional UK operations. We took this opportunity to re establish ourselves as London's low cost flat pack assembly service with prices often 50% of some competitors.

2010: April

We introduced a range of services to increase our offering in the London area which was very well received. At this time we also introduced our price match guarantee where we aim to price match any genuine quote.

2011: March

As the economy recovered and demand for our service increased we opened seasonal bases in Birmingham and Manchester offering furniture assembly West Midlands and IKEA assembly Manchester and our limited non London services proved popular.

2012: April

Our bases in Manchester and Birmingham are made permanent and will operate year round. We also opened bases in Newcastle, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Glasgow, Southampton and Brighton and recruited talented handymen to assemble furniure.

2013: March

We increased our coverage of the UK and now cover almost all of the mainland offering great value furniutre assembly nationwide.

2014: August

We had our busiest ever day at buildmyflatpacks.com and served customers in England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland all on the same day! This month we also began publishing our customer service statistics, a first in the industry.

2016: October

We reached our tenth birthday and for ten years we have been focused on lower prices and excellent service. We continue to innovate and update our product to meet the needs of our customers and are serving more customers than ever in over 25 locations throughout the UK
