Please take notice:
We notice that you have various household furnishing constructed of particle-board (also known as “pressed wood”).
This type of furniture is suspect of brakeage, cracking, dents, and related forms of damage following exercise of due care. The reason for this problem is the inherent weakness of the unstable wood product used in its construction.
The California MAX 4 Tariff, at Itcm 172 (mandated by the California public utilities commission for moves with an origin and destination in the state of California) as well as the 400m Tariff, item 36 (filed with the U.S. department of transportation, for moves with an origin and destination in different states) recognize these problems with this sort of furniture. According to the respective tariffs, a carrier (The Moving Company) is entitled to charge a disassembly and reassembly charge for these items at the prevailing hourly rates. We, at The Moving Company, realize that the original assembly of many of these products was completed with glue that would make disassembly highly complicated and require significant time.
