An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this Ikea phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like Ikea staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy day to call Ikea is Sunday. The most busy day to call is Monday, which averages 92% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 242 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

Calling this Ikea Customer Number

Jeff Whelpley is the editor / author responsible for this content.

Even though Ikea encourages callers to check out its online chatbot for assistance, it's actually very easy to get assistance when you call Ikea for help. When I called, I was first told that working with the online chatbot was the best way to get help and asked if I wanted to get a link to the chatbot. I opted not to do so, instead choosing to wait to see if I could get someone on the phone.

I was then taken to a menu, which asked me for the purpose of my call. I was given a choice of getting help with kitchen-specific items, getting help with an existing order or asking any other kind of question. I chose the third option, and I was again told that I could go online to get assistance. But about a minute after making my selection, I was connected with a representative, who asked how my day was going and asked how she could assist.

I said that I was going to place an order on Ikea's website, and I wanted to know what kind of timeline I had to make a return if it wasn't the right choice for my needs. She told me that would depend on what the item was and whether or not it was open. If the item had been opened, I would have 180 days from the date of purchase to make a return. If I had not opened the item, I had up to one full year to make a return. She also told me that mattresses were an exception, and I could only return a mattress within 90 days.

Based on this, I would definitely use this number if I needed help from Ikea. I found it very easy to get assistance and quickly moved through the system to get someone on the phone, making for an enjoyable experience.

Why Customers Call Ikea

If you have time to do a bit of reading before you call Ikea, we recommend you read over some of our problem-specific articles.

What is Ikea's return policy?

Ikea's return policy allows customers to return unused and unopened products within 365 days of purchase, accompanied by a valid receipt or proof of purchase. If the product is deemed to be in good condition, customers can receive a full refund using the original form of payment. However, if the product is opened or used, a refund may still be granted but at a reduced amount. Additionally, for larger items like furniture and appliances, Ikea offers a Pick-up and Order (PICK-UP) service, which allows customers to return or exchange these items within 14 days of purchase. To facilitate returns, customers are advised to bring the product and all its components along with the original packaging. Certain exceptions and exclusions may apply, so it's recommended to consult Ikea's return policy on their website or contact their customer service for further assistance.

What is Ikea's warranty policy?

At Ikea, we value the satisfaction of our customers, which is why we offer a comprehensive warranty policy. Our warranty covers all manufacturing defects and functional faults for a specific period, varying between products. For most furniture items, such as sofas, beds, and tables, we provide a ten-year warranty, ensuring their longevity and quality. However, our warranty does not cover wear and tear, normal usage, or self-assembly products after their assembly, unless the item is found to be faulty upon delivery. For electronics and appliances, the warranty varies between one and five years, depending on the product. In the case of any issue covered by the warranty, we offer either a replacement part, repair, or refund, and our customer support team is always ready to assist with inquiries and solutions.

What are the accepted payment methods at Ikea?

At Ikea, we offer multiple convenient payment methods for your shopping experience. We gladly accept major credit and debit cards including Visa, Mastercard, and American Express. If you prefer a more flexible option, we also accept payments made through the Ikea Projekt credit card, allowing you to finance your purchases with special financing offers. Additionally, customers can choose to use the Ikea Gift Card, providing a hassle-free and easy way to make payments. For those who prefer contactless payments, we gladly accept mobile payment options such as Apple Pay and Google Pay. Rest assured, Ikea aims to cater to your preferred payment choice to make your shopping experience seamless and enjoyable.

If phone-based customer service is not available, or the wait times are long, many people prefer chat as a next-best option. Some even prefer it to calling on the phone. Luckily, Ikea provides this option.

As a last, sometimes only, resort- Ikea customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
