Did you know 💡 The inspiration behind IKEA's flat-pack furniture was born when one of the first Ikea co-workers removed the legs of an table after purchasing it, so that he could fit it into his car to transport it home safely. 💡

Who are the Fixlers?

Re-reading the IKEA story, it is quite appropriate that Fixlers came into being when our founder, Dov Breuer, was scouting around to find a flat-pack furniture assembly service. He was looking for someone to put together an IKEA closet for one of his sons - 3 days before a holiday. Dov tried calling a few numbers listed in the Yellow pages, but with no avail. No carpenter was willing to provide a furniture assembly service, and no IKEA-registered handyman was available at the time.

Eventually, he was given contact details for someone via a friend of a friend, who was not a qualified carpenter or a registered IKEA furniture builder. He was nevertheless very experienced at putting together IKEA furniture.

Dov made the call, and 24 hours later, the closet was assembled and in place - and at a fraction of the cost of the IKEA installation service!

Inspired by Dov’s experience, here at Fixlers we're all working hard to make sure that this is the single best way for homeowners to choose great tradesmen, and for great tradesmen to provide their excellent service.
