Airtasker is a community marketplace where people and businesses may outsource a variety of tasks, including everything from handyman services to garden maintenance and furniture assembly.

Now, IKEA shoppers who visit the furniture chain's Tempe location will have the chance to book a furniture assembly service on the spot with Airtasker via an in-store kiosk. To reassure customers, the Airtaskers booked for assembly jobs via the kiosks will have met a strict set of requirements, such as having a registered business number, passing a police check and having a high rating from other customers on the marketplace service site.

Although IKEA already offers its own furniture assembly service, this partnership with Airtasker offers a more affordable alternative, just in time for the arrival of the back-to-school season.
