Can you have a green office move? Sure you can!
Here at Rose City Moving & Storage we do everything that we can to insure that your move is as friendly to the environment as possible. For office moves we can either use our Green Moving Crates or our recycled moving boxes. The green crates are very handy for large office moves where the customer plans to pack and then unpack within about weeks time. If the boxes need to stay packed longer, then cardboard moving boxes make the most sense for sure.
The Green Moving Crates have many advantages from easier to pack to quicker to move, you can also secure confidential files by locking the end with zip ties or actual locks. For the green move plan you can take comfort in knowing that the crates will be used over and over and over again….. But don’t rule out the traditional cardboard moving boxes just yet! Moving boxes can be packed quickly, are lighter when packed, used for long term storage and they too are very green. The boxes start off being made from sustainable forests and recycled cardboard, once in use they are typically used for about 10 moves (tags are peeled off and the boxes are rebundled each time) and then when their life as a cardboard moving box is done they are recycled so that someday they can come back again as a new moving box.
For household moves the old cardboard box still wins the day. The multiple box sizes and ability to keep stuff packed for weeks….or years (you know who you are!) make the cardboard box the best choice for home moves.
Please talk to your move consultant and they will help you determine the best way to get your belonging moved to your new office or home. Thanks again for helping us be Portland’s Best Mover.
