Why should I secure my items to the wall when provided for in the IKEA instructions?
For your own safety and for the safety of others in your home, it is always important to assemble products in accordance with the manufacturer’s assembly instructions. To help prevent injury or death from furniture tipover, IKEA requires that certain furniture be secured to the wall, as provided for in the assembly instructions. Your Tasker should bring an electric drill to better secure items to the wall in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
Why am I being asked to agree to have my items assembled per IKEA instructions before I can complete my booking?
For the safety of consumers, Clients must agree that they will direct their Tasker to follow IKEA assembly instructions – including securing furniture to a wall when the instructions so provide.
What happens if I refuse to allow the Tasker to secure items to the wall if the IKEA instructions require that they be secured?
Prior to booking an IKEA assembly task, you are required to indicate that you agree to the following language: “You agree to direct a Tasker to follow IKEA assembly instructions - including securing to a wall when the instructions so provide.” If you later decide you don’t want your Tasker to secure items to the wall where required by IKEA assembly instructions, please cancel the task at least 24 hours prior to the Tasker arriving - no cancellation fee will apply.
What happens if I am not home when my task is completed?
You are responsible for overseeing and directing the work of your Tasker. Neither TaskRabbit nor IKEA monitor, direct or oversee the work of Taskers, who are independent contractors hired by Clients. If, however, you will not be home when your task is started or completed, please ensure your Tasker knows where the IKEA item should be secured if the IKEA assembly directions indicate it should be secured to a wall. If you fail to do so, your Tasker will attempt to find out that information from you via the chat thread in the Tasker App. Pursuant to our Terms of Service, if you are not present but there is another adult in your home, you authorize the Tasker to take direction (including instructing where to secure the furniture) from that person. If your Tasker is unable to ascertain that information from you or another adult in your home, they will secure the furniture to a wall using their best judgment and you expressly waive all claims arising or related to the item being secured to a wall.
