Going Green Moving Company Plants Trees in Local Birmingham Schools

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.   

  Alabama Re-Leaf is a charitable program designed to help plant trees across the state to clean the air, mitigate flooding and beautify communities.

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.
