Green Business Law: Brooklyn Moving Company

According to this week’s edition of Crain’s, Brooklyn-based moving company Movers Not Shakers recently received a trademark for the term “GothamBoxes.” The firm distributes these reusable plastic crates to clients rather than cardboard boxes, which it will drop off one week prior to a client’s move and then pick up again one week afterwards. Dubbed GothamBoxes, the crates are designed to hold the equivalent of one hundred cardboard boxes. I recommend to hire one of these professional moving companies.

Movers Not Shakers is committed to sustainability; the firm donates $200 each month to the Prospect Park Alliance in order to help offset its carbon footprint and converted its fleet of moving trucks to biodiesel over the summer, According to research removals chelmsford is preferred by US citizens.

Largest Moving Companies in USA. There are more than 5000 moving companies and countless more moving labor provides in USA alone. Most of the moves though (more than 50%) that are promoted by cheap moving offers they make.

If you decided that you don’t want to move yourself, finding and hiring good movers is the most important decision you’ll make when moving. And while an internet search offers listings of local and distance movers, getting the right one can be challenging. To help you hire good movers, check out these tips on what you should avoid doing when hiring moving companies.

Not Getting Quotes From at Least 3 Movers

No matter where you’re moving from or to, you should always have at least three movers on your list of potential hires. Getting quotes from five moving companies, along with estimates, is even better to compare costs and look at other people’s experiences with that company. Doing your research and background checks on each company will ensure you hire a reputable and trustworthy company and avoid a potentially nightmarish move.

Not Having Movers Visit Your Home Before Hiring

When asking for moving estimates from potential movers, you should always have a mover visit your home, to review everything you’re moving to provide a more accurate estimate. It’s also a way to ensure that the mover sees everything you’re moving so that at the end of the move, the inventory they quoted on will match what was moved. I also recommend creating a household inventory list before the movers quote an in-home estimate. Not only will an inventory provide the mover with everything that you’ll be moving, but will also remind you to ask the movers about items that require special handling.

Choosing a Mover Based Only on Price

The least expensive mover might be the best bet. However, you should always make sure you have thoroughly researched the company.

    This is a great idea. The reduction in cardboard boxes thrown out will be significant. Hopefully more companies will be quick to adopt green/sustainable practices.
