Ikea discontinued the Jerker (Version 2) Desk more than a decade ago but they’re still for sale on the secondary market.
Sites like Craigslist and Kijjiji have Ikea Jerkers for sale every single day, all around the world.
But how much should a Jerker cost?
The best way to answer this question is to see how much they cost back when Ikea sold them.
Here’s the original price for an “Ikea Jerker Desk” in a screenshot from the USA Ikea website, February 9, 2005:
And here’s a screenshot showing the price of an “Ikea Jerker Computer Desk”:
And here’s a screeshot showing the price of an “Ikea Jerker Computer Table”:
So, back in 2005, we’ve got prices ranging between $90 and $190 US.
A sample of various sites around North America had listings ranging from FREE (and usually “Gone”) to $40 to $400. My experience, which is pretty good, I’d say a typical Ikea Jerker should sell for between $60 and $150. These will have scratches on the legs, dings and maybe scratch or two on the desktop and the shelf. A pristine condition Jerker, version 2, could sell for $200.
