Some people like shopping at IKEA. These people are weird and should be treated with suspicion. For everyone else, the Swedish bric-a-brac juggernaut is finally launching an online delivery service in Australia. Here are the available locations and prices.

Shopping in a full-size IKEA complex makes me feel like the Man In Black from Westworld – obsessively searching for a solution to the “maze” while contemplating the bloody murder of everyone who crosses my path.

Thankfully, the launch of IKEA’s online delivery service means I’ll soon be able to buy its furniture from the comfort of my own home. As reported by news.com.au, customers can now order online and either collect in store or receive home delivery – with prices starting at $79.

Currently, the service is only available in the ACT, with plans to expand the delivery service to regional locations. As you’d expect, the delivery fee depends on your location in relation to the store and the size of the goods you’ve purchased which are divided into three “bands”. Prices start at $79.

Rather cheekily, IKEA is also charging $20 for click-and-collect purchases which seems far too high to us. Unless you’re extremely time-poor, it makes far more sense to walk into the store and pick it up yourself. (Just ring up beforehand to check that the item you want is in stock.)

If you don’t live in the ACT, it’s still possible to get your stuff home delivered – how else do you think people get their beds and tables out of the store? Here are the current locations and prices:

  • In SA and WA Ikea have been doing online/home delivery for quite some time.

    ACT playing catch-up to the west for once.

  • Some people like shopping at IKEA. These people are weird and should be treated with suspicion.

    Totally agree. Every time I have to go to IKEA, it’s always full of pregnant women. Don’t know why. And it scares me for some weird reason…

  • When at Ikea…
    Slip in via the self serve checkouts
    Walk against the arrows… it freaks the breeders out.
    Get to know the sneaky swing door shortcuts.
    Bypass the hot dog trough…….and exit via the revolving entry door…
    In and out in 20 mins.

  • For some strange reason, Ikea haven’t included 2615 on their delivery list for the ACT, which represents a sizeable chunk of Belconnen. Does anyone know if there’s a reason, or is it just a mistake?
