Press release submitted by Kaitlin Kulovitz

Quad Cities area residents will now have a convenient, inexpensive way to bring the sleek, modern designs of IKEA® to their own homes. iDeliverIKEA.com offers the Quad-Cities a new IKEA® delivery service, saving customers time, money, and the hassle of making the two-and-a-half hour trip to the nearest Bolingbrook, Ill. IKEA® location.

Started by two Augustana College graduates, Brian Pawl and Kaitlin Kulovitz, iDeliverIKEA.com provides a simple solution for those who crave the store's fashionable furnishings. The company's simple online ordering process allows customers to easily purchase IKEA® products from the comfort of their own homes while avoiding long lines, crowded stores, and Chicago traffic. iDeliverIKEA.com offers deep discounts on delivery – charging up to 80 percent less than it would cost if you ordered directly from IKEA®.

"Our process is simple," said Brian Pawl, co-founder of iDeliverIKEA. "Our goal is to save people money and the headache of fighting the Chicago crowds. The Quad-Cities should have affordable access to IKEA® products without paying ridiculously high shipping rates."

Many people avoid making online purchases from IKEA® due to shipping costs and limited selection of goods available online. iDeliverIKEA will deliver any item in the store's catalog or on their website, including items that IKEA® won't ship to the Quad-Cities.

How does it work? Customers can visit www.IKEA.com or sign up to request a free IKEA® catalog to browse thousands of items, including bedding, sofas and armchairs, cooking accessories, lighting, and décor. Customers then simply place their IKEA® orders at www.iDeliverIKEA.com to save significantly on delivery.

The company plans to make delivery trips to the Quad-Cities every 2-3 weeks. View the next delivery date and order deadline date on the iDeliverIKEA.com homepage. The company accepts all major credit cards and payment is processed on their website at checkout.

Delivery days are always scheduled on Sundays. Customers have the option of picking up their orders at the iDeliver pick-up center in Bettendorf, or opting for home delivery for an additional fee. To learn more about iDeliverIKEA, please visit their website at www.iDeliverIKEA.com.


Based in Aurora, Illinois, iDeliverIKEA.com focuses on providing inexpensive, convenient, hassle-free furniture delivery to IKEA® enthusiasts throughout the Quad-Cities. iDeliverIKEA.com currently delivers exclusively to customers in Bettendorf, Davenport, Moline, Rock Island, East Moline, and surrounding Quad-Cities areas.
