Sven Delivers provides an exceptional IKEA shopping, delivery and assembly service for Seacoast New Hampshire and Maine. We even do returns! We make frequent trips and deliver on the weekends so you don't have to miss time from work waiting for a delivery truck. <3!!dd!!.  We save you time and money and leave you with some beautifully designed, sustainably made Swedish happiness!  We will drive through Boston traffic, navigate the crowded store, pick your order, stand in line, pack it nicely in our delivery van and bring it to your door - while you get on with your lifE.


Why use Sven Delivers?  IKEA is great at selling furniture but delivery may not be their favorite thing.

  • Not all items in their catalog are available for shipping and even then, only small items ship by UPS.  
  • They use independent carriers to deliver flatpack or oddly sized pieces and the fee starts at $229 to New Hampshire and Maine.  
  • IKEA's independent carriers can take 7-14 days to deliver while you're missing time from work waiting for a truck delivery. 
  • Sven Delivers tells you when your item will be delivered (Saturday or Sunday, or if you prefer Monday-Friday pickups in Portland) and provides a window of time.
  • Our service fee can be substantially less than IKEA's truck delivery - usually a fraction of the cost!

Jessica T. in Portland

The allure of the IKEA trip has worn off for me so I was incredibly grateful to learn about Sven Delivers as an affordable alternative to five hours of driving and wandering the warehouse in a consumer fog. Sven Delivers was prompt, friendly, and communicative. I recommend them to all my friends and colleagues who want IKEA furnishings without the hassle of making the trek.

Jessica W. in Portland

Every delivery has been perfect and love working with you!

Megan in Gorham

Excellent! Loved the little personal touches, and great communication and service.

Karen in South Portland

I think this service is a brilliant idea. Extremely affordable. Order was delivered in a timely manner and the customer service is excellent!

Michelle in Auburn

Your service was fabulous from start to finish! From order to furniture assembly, I couldn't have been more pleased!

Pamela in Warren

I was in love with this Ikea mirror but it was not an item they would ship so I gave up hope and was going to go with something else and expressed that to my daughter and she found a way (you)!
I found Sven Delivers to be a great service that gets the goods without having to spend an entire day of travel, very quick, easy and helpful.

Andrew in Brunswick

Very reasonable shipping, Clear info about how it works, Easy payment. Couldn't have been easier. Didn't have to wait too long. Stuff arrived unblemished.

Rob in Portland

The delivery charge was comparable to IKEA's delivery charge. Great customer service all around. Wonderful experience with the assembly person.


I hate the trip to Stoughton, and figured it'd be better to have someone else do it!  Loved it - super easy and efficient!

Mike in Rye

IKEA shipping is crazy expensive, and didn't want to drive to Boston for just a bookshelf. Have seen this kind of service in Seattle and NYC so went looking for it here. It was super easy. Just a few quick emails and the bookshelf showed up in my garage! You were very responsive with the emails, too.

Lindsay in South Portland


You provided a service I needed exactly when I needed it for a very reasonable price.

Ryan in South Portland




I loved it. Peg is very responsive and they showed up and brought my bookcases inside and placed them where I asked them to quickly and gently so everything was perfectly in tact. A really great service offered by real, trustworthy people. Easily a 10/10. Thank you again. I love my new bookshelves and you all saved me an arm and a leg and much frustration by delivering them to me. Thank you!


Convenience. The experience was great from start to finish. The cost is transparent and well worth the value.
Really friendly, rapid response to e-mails. Fabulous. Clear, concise, friendly correspondence, was great to be able to text too, just as expected and reasonably priced.

Custom doors for IKEA cabinets

Semihandmade launched in January 2011 with a goal of offering handmade craftsmanship at a reasonable price. We're able to do this by making doors that fit Ikea cabinets.  Since then, we've faced almost 10,000 kitchens, bathrooms, closets and media units in the US and Canada, and in 2015 made INC Magazine's list of the :fastest-growing privately-owned US companies!

We love our Swedish friends.  We love the quality of their sturdy cabinets boxes and Blum hardware.  We love the flexibility that comes with being able to buy only parts and components - and not doors - so you can get as creative as you want.  And we especially love their price; even with Semihandmade doors, you'll easily save 30-40% on the cost of a typical custom kitchen.
