Great news for IKEA lovers! The Goods and Services Tax (GST) in Malaysia has been set at zero percent beginning June 1, 2018 and since then, IKEA has revised their item prices as well as delivery charges for IKEA Home Delivery services. 

Delivery From IKEA Cheras and IKEA Damansara (Before Nov 13, 2017)

Prior to the opening of IKEA Tebrau store (before Nov 13, 2017), IKEA Home Delivery Service was having the standard delivery rates from both IKEA Cheras and Damansara, based on delivery locations and a total weight of the IKEA items purchased.

Customers are required to take the whole truck (1 tonne or 3 tonnes) even if they only purchased few items. It was a flat rate of RM80 delivery fee for Klang Valley residents, and up to RM1400 for 1-tonne lorry for delivery to Kelantan and Terengganu.

After the opening of IKEA Tebrau outlet, the rates are divided into 4 zones:

  • Zone A – Selected areas in KL, Putrajaya and Selangor (approx. 50km distance from IKEA outlets)
  • Zone B – Selected areas in Selangor, Perak, Pahang, Negeri Sembilan (approx. 100km distance from IKEA outlets)
  • Zone C – Selected areas in Perak, Pahang, Negeri Sembilan, Melaka and Johor (approx. 150km distance from IKEA outlets)
  • Outstation Zones: RM250 – RM465 per 2 cubic metre (based on states)

Refer to the table below for the delivery fee of different delivery locations:

Such delivery rates are definitely more affordable. Customers that stay within the 150km radius from IKEA Cheras and Damansara outlets can enjoy the flat rate per order and those who stay in outstation zones just need to pay for the delivery fee of every 2 cubic metre of IKEA goods purchased, thus reduce the delivery fee tremendously.

[NEW] Delivery From IKEA Cheras and IKEA Damansara (From June 1, 2018 Onwards)

IKEA Home Delivery rates have been revised since June 1, 2018 with the implementation of zero-rated GST. Our personal shopper managed to snap a picture of the most updated IKEA Home Delivery rates as well as the new charges for other services (refer to the column ‘New Price, RM’).

The rates are lower for delivery services but assembly fee stays at 10% of products price.

Aside from lower deliver rates, IKEA has revised the prices of IKEA items to exclude the GST portion. It’s equivalent to a storewide IKEA Mega Sales of 6% discount for all items!

The new prices are quite unusual as normally IKEA priced their items to end with decimals of 90 cents.  It’s definitely a great news for IKEA lovers to enjoy a lower rate for all items!

Alternative Way to Shop and Deliver IKEA Items:

Since IKEA Malaysia doesn’t have e-store online shopping yet, customers are still required to visit the IKEA outlets personally to pick, pay and arrange for delivery to their home. Alternatively, Helpr does provide personal shopping and delivery for IKEA items to any location in Malaysia, Brunei and Singapore too.

For those who are not staying in Klang Valley, it makes sense to engage with personal shopping and delivery service to get their IKEA items, considering the hassle to travel and the long queue and the busy crowd they have to deal with.
