Hive mind: I need a single Ikea item to complete my home office but, unfortunately, it will not fit in my car (it is a 47'' x 47'' table top: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60251335/
). Ordinarily, I would just have something like this delivered but, as I'm sure many of you know, Ikea's delivery scheme is geared towards huge orders. Even though this is a $35 piece of wood that is actually not particularly heavy, I would need to pay $89 if I had it delivered from the store and (I shit you not) $129 if I ordered it online.
Any thoughts on how I can move a flat 47'' x 47'' piece of wood that is 30 miles away without paying $89? Renting a van would cost roughly the same, and no one on eBay or Craigslist seems to be selling that same piece. Of course, if anyone wants to volunteer their (sufficiently big) car for an Ikea run, I'm sure we can find something you want that I have (seriously, though, I'd be willing to pay cash, just not $89 for a friggin' $35 piece of wood)
