Moving house is about as far from being eco-friendly as it’s possible to be. Right? Wrong, actually.

With a little forethought, preparation and care, you CAN make a difference by moving in an environmentally friendly way. It starts with selecting your moving company.

Some quick questions to movers to help you make your choice:

  1. Can we select routes and travel times to cut down on our emissions?
  2. Do you have access to, or suggestions for, environmentally friendly storage space?
  3. Have you ensured your offices and warehouses are energy efficient?
  4. As a company, do you recycle? Have you encouraged your staff to recycle?
  5. Do you sell, or can you recommend, containers made of recycled material?
  6. Do you offer the service of disposing of any unwanted items in a safe and environmentally sound way?
  7. Do you give online quotes, eliminating unnecessary use of paper?
  8. Do you investigate buying or leasing trucks that emit less pollution?
  9. What do you do to give back to your community?

Getting answers to these questions will help guide you in picking a moving company you believe is contributing the most to keeping it green.
