We are Green
Our founder, Mark Ehrhardt, started Movers, Not Shakers! to change the way moving is done. We use eco-friendly methods to reduce the carbon footprint of your move. Our affordable, waste-conscious methods make moving a more positive experience for clients, citizens, and community.
We’re one of the few licensed movers using Biodiesel: a clean, renewable, carbon- neutral alternative to gas that cuts emissions by as much as 80%. It’s biodegradable, non- toxic, and ultimately better for our health. Our provider, Pureair Diesel by Diesel Direct, collects cooking oil from local restaurants, refines it, and provides us with the clean alternative.
We provide reusable bins so you can pack in a more efficient and eco-friendly manner. One week before your move, we deliver the bins to your door. On move day, we wrap your furniture and move the bins. Give us a call after the move and we’ll come pick up the empty bins.
E-waste is responsible for 70% of the toxins found in landfills, and the textile industry is one of the leading producers of greenhouse gases. We reduce this impact by dropping off bags from Wearable Collections in advance of our moves. We donate your discarded items to our partners.
We won’t shake you down for a higher price. In New York City, time is money. That’s why hourly companies have no incentive to finish on time. Our experienced sales team will work with you to provide an accurate estimate. You owe it yourself to move forward with Movers, Not Shakers!
