Why is material charge an estimate?
The material charge listed on the estimate is not set in stone. The charge can apply for packing your delicate items like Tv, Mirror, Lamp, Artwork, and glass tabletop, glass shelf, framed pictures, etc. So if you don’t have an appropriate box for these, we can then use ours this is why the charge is added. The material charge depends upon the boxes we use and the boxes we customize so I can not tell you if the material charge is going to be 100% as it’s listed on the estimate but it should be around this much. The material charges can go up or down depending upon usage.

Odd shaped items like lamps / Lampshades, glass tabletop, marble top, etc.
