birmingham's oldest moving company is going green in 2018
Road Runner Moving and Storage is committed to environmental sustainability and has incorporated several new Green Initiatives in 2018. This includes becoming the leading corporate partner of the Alabama Urban Forestry Association and helping the Alabama Re-Leaf Program plant large trees in schools and parks across Alabama.
WE ARE PLANTING TREES IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS
Our organization understands the importance of preserving our natural resources for future generations to come. That is why our organization has pledged to plant a variety of trees in schools across the communities we serve.
In January we started planting trees in the Hoover City School System and by March will have planted trees in elementary schools in Mountain Brook, Homewood and Vestavia.
With the help of Road Runner Moving, Alagasco, Alabama Power, Auburn University, and the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries, more than 30,000 trees have been planted throughout the state in the past nine years.
our first Hybrid Electric Fleet Vehicle
When your in the moving business, one of your biggest assets is your team's fleet. That is why started converting from the traditional delivery fleet vehicles to a more environmentally friendly alternative.
This lead us to the purchase of our first hybrid electric fleet vehicle. The GMC Yukon Hybrid was converted to a hybrid fleet vehicle similar to what the NYPD implemented several years ago and is estimated to reduce approximately 40% of our fuel consumption vs the traditional work truck.
