    Still have memories of buying a double bed and mattress and then remembering we were in a hatchback. You wouldn’t have though you could fold a brand new mattress in half but you can if needs must!

    I always thought that Ikea should do a public transmission of a live feed from the customer loading area. What some folk will attempt is hilarious.

    Like the fella me and my dad watched, old knackered cavalier. Throws two fence panels on the roof, no roof rack. puts rope through open car windows, through other side, does this a few times, loads of big knots, then trys to open the car door to get in.

    ummm that’ll be tied shut, never mind, he climbed in, true dukes of hazard stylee.

    you had to be there I suppose 🙂

    Need to visit Ikea in the morning to collect some wardrobes, I have got roof bars but don’t have any straps or rope to tie them on

    does anyone know if Ikea sell straps in store?

    Unwaxed sash cord, very strong, and durable,dont forget to go over the top, roof bar to roof bar, and across front, to stop stuff slideing off in a severe braking manouvre,as youll get a big fine and possibly endorsement for haveing an insecure load, thats if you dont injure anyone,always stop and check after a few miles the ropes are still tight.
    Enjoy the total frustration of the assembly of Ikea furniture when you get home,and always assemble in the room where the furniture is going to live and die.
    Awaits new post tomorrow,parts missing/damaged/etc from Ikea.

    Simply take it to the home delivery desk, most deliveries within a week but usually within a couple of days.

    Simply take it to the home delivery desk,

    Agreed. Often it’s next day delivery.

    If you’re getting wardrobes it’s the only way.

    After a trip to B&Q making my way to the checkout spotted that Ikea sells TÅT Luggage rope
    £3.91
    they also had the ratchet straps

    As the box weighed 48Kg ended up putting it in the car, which with the front seat fully forward fitted easily.

    0845 3551142 is the number to call for missing parts 😉

    I’ve got tie-downs ,from when I used to transport my enduro bike(motorcycle)around the country. Squeezed a mattress in the wife’s old Brava,the other week. Visibility wasn’t great..
