We know why we’re GREEN, but what’s in it for you?
Since 2007, we’ve been running all of our trucks on BioDiesel fuel. BioDiesel cuts tailpipe emissions by 80% compared to conventional diesel.
Additionally we’ve been delivering clean reusable bins for our customers to pack their belongings in since 2007. Disposable cardboard boxes produce the bulk of the waste involved in relocating locally. They are rarely reused more than once, and even when they are recycled, a large percentage of the cardboard material will end up in the landfill.
As a green alternative to cardboard boxes, our reusable bins have allowed our customers to avoid using around 250,000 disposable cardboard boxes over the last eleven years.
But what does all this tree-hugging do for you, the customer?
As we see it, you’ve got 3 main advantages to choosing a green move over a conventional move.
- If you hire Movers, Not Shakers!, you can ‘edit your lifestyle’ during your relocation without filling up a dumpster. While booking your move, request our reusable bags that you can fill with old clothing and outdated electronics. We will take those items to our preferred recycling partners, and you won’t have to drag them to your new home or discard them as trash.
- It’s easier! Consider using reusable bins over cardboard boxes: the bins stack within each other to maintain a low profile. There is no folding, taping, or assembly of a reusable bin, it arrives ready to be filled. We drop the bins off at your doorstep before your move in order for you to pack, and we pick them up after you are unpacked to be cleaned and prepped for the next eco-conscious customer. You do not have to deal with the disposal of a pile of cardboard boxes post-move.
- You get to have an impact, too. It’s the discerning customer these days that chooses like-minded companies, relying on their beliefs to determine with whom they work. Moving is one of the most wasteful industries out there, but we know it doesn’t have to be. If our green initiatives were implemented nationwide the impact would be significant, and by choosing a green company, you are choosing to help the entire industry move forward.
Doing the right thing for yourself and the world was never so easy. Remember, it’s not just who moves you, but HOW you get moved!
