Many inexperienced contractors can find themselves liable for damages when attempting to move customer property. For example, a water damage contractor should never attempt to move a slate pool table, no matter many people are able to lend a hand. The slate can actually break, and the contractor can be held responsible in Fairfax, VA. This is true even if you have a clause in your service agreement about damages that may occur during the course of water damage restoration.
As with other industry caveats, your liability starts when the danger is identified. Entertainment centers, bars, gym equipment, aquariums, grandfather clocks, bookshelves may also require expert moving and disassembly.
