The Poster lives in an apartment, he's not making the bookcases.
The wardrobes are about 7 feet high. The ceiling is 8 feet high. Seems like a pretty big screw to me.

the wardrobes do not need to be screwed to anything, i checked on this, they're heavy and very difficult to move, no way they tip over. so i'm just trying to figure out if they would violate the apartment policy (also the wardrobes are 8 feet high, they reach the ceiling).

You will need to know what the exact measurements are of the ceiling and the wardrobe.
According to the Ikea link, the wardrobe is 93 1/8". If that's true, you will need about 96 5/8"of height to tilt it into position. Another option is to build the wardrobes in the standing position.
