Do I need to assemble it myself?
Most Mothercare furniture is delivered flat-packed for self-assembly. It offers home assembly through its delivery company, with whom you can arrange assembly once your items have been delivered. Delivery is £9.95 to mainland UK and Northern Ireland. Assembly-service prices start from £25, but assembly is organised by an external company and will be confirmed when you call to arrange it.
How much does Mothercare nursery furniture cost?
Mothercare nursery furniture is relatively expensive, costing anywhere from about £650 to £1,300 for a three-piece set, compared with the £380 you might pay for one of Ikea's most expensive three-piece sets. However, you can get a more basic two-piece Ikea set for around the £200 mark.
