Different options at various costs

According to Ikea, there are various shipping and delivery options you can choose from depending on your needs. For small orders, the price for delivery starts at $6 and can increase depending on weight and size. Once shipped, Ikea will send you a tracking number, and there will be no request for a signature. However, if you're purchasing larger items, the price for standard delivery will start at $29 for non-Ikea Family members, and $19 for those who do have a membership. 

If you need the item dropped off on your doorstep on a specific day, you can pay $49 and choose the date, and the delivery provider will give you a time frame for arrival the night before. If you're not one for heavy lifting, there's also an option that starts at $79 for in-home delivery. It's the same process, and you'll even be able to tell them which room to drop it off in. Note that the delivery date depends on where you live, but will be provided before you pay for your items.
