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 by working with city foresters and other key city officials.

In January we started planting trees in the Hoover City School System followed by plantings across elementary schools in Homewood City Schools. We are actively working to plant trees in Mountain Brook, Vestavia, Alabaster, Pelham and other Birmingham area city school systems as well as projects in Huntsville and Mobile, once more projects are approved and fully funded. With the help of Road Runner Moving, the Alabama Re-Leaf Program has planted more than 44,000 trees 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.

Additionally, our entire fleet of moving trucks are brand new, consisting of 2017-2019 year model trucks meeting the cleanest emissions systems available on the market.
