Will not repair pressed board or simulated wood furniture. Much of the budget priced furniture today is made from a press wood or wood byproduct material with a photograph of wood grain attached. Some of the wood grain look is simply paper and some is very thin plastic material like on lower end kitchen cabinets. This type of material is not structurally strong, especially if it has screws, since the screw threads have no real grain to embed into, just crumbly pressed wood chips held together by a binding agent. It is not repairable and we have seen items crumble from the smallest vibrations riding in a truck across town. We will do our best to move it successfully for you, but are not responsible for damage.
