Top 5 Tips for an Eco Friendly Relocation Moving Services Fort Worth TX

Moving isn’t usually considered to be an environmentally friendly process. Whatever relocation services in Forth Worth you use, movers can produce lots of waste in the form of discarded items and packing materials, and driving exhaust. Nevertheless, there are ways you can minimize waste in your move.

1. Prepare Ahead So You Have Fewer Items to Move

Most people lose track of all the stuff they’ve accumulated over the years like unwanted or rarely used clothes, shoes, extra cutlery, etc.  Take an inventory of your items, then categorize them in separate groups to donate, sell, recycle. or trash. Anything in the "trash" group should be things you can't get rid of any other way. Various institutions like schools and libraries or charities like Goodwill and the Salvation Army will happily accept any items in good condition that they can use or resell.

2. Use Resources You Already Have Instead of Buying Extra Boxes, Containers, or Packing Materials

Grocery bags, suitcases, backpacks, or plastic containers like Tupperware are all examples of things you might already own or can borrow from friends that you could use for your move instead of boxes. If you need boxes, check with stores in your area to see if they have any discarded ones they can give you. Place small, non-breakable items in pots or glasses. Paper towels, linens, blankets, newspapers, and even junk mail are useful replacements for packing materials like bubble wrap or store-bought packing paper. Cut up old clothes that you’d otherwise toss out into rags -- you can use them instead of paper towels when you’re cleaning your old place for the next resident

3. When You Need to Buy Moving Materials, Consider Green Alternatives

There are biodegradable or recyclable options for many packing supplies. Boxes made from recycled materials are easily available. Packing peanuts are now color coded. Pink and white peanuts are completely or mostly made from non-recycled ingredients, while green peanuts are up to 70% recycled and are biodegradable. Similarly, green bubble wrap is made with 40% recycled materials and is biodegradable and recyclable. For advice on where to recycle these and other items once you’re done with them, try earth911.com.

4. Leave A Few Dishes and Some Cutlery Unpacked

Most people typically order a lot of takeout food during the moving process. Keep some kitchen supplies handy so you can avoid using plastic utensils and paper plates before you finally unpack your dinnerware.

5. Prepare to Make the Fewest Number of Trips on Moving

If you decide to move some of your things yourself, plan ahead so the movers can take as many items as possible. That way, you can keep multiple car trips between your old and new place to a minimum. Fireman Movers is glad to help if you need advice deciding what to take yourself.

Once your move is complete, the effort you’ve taken in your eco-friendly moving can get you in the habit of living an environmentally-friendly lifestyle into the future.

  • Mike Z

    I wanted to reach out and thank you and your crew for the help and work they did in my move. Your guys were professional and very positive throughout the whole move. They really put me at ease and what I thought would be very frustrating day was a good experience. They were very careful and treated my stuff with great care. When they arrived I felt we were maybe not as packed and organized as we should have been but they helped get it together and packed on the truck. I was so glad it went so smooth. Please thank the crew and please use us as a reference as we are a happy customer. My daughter had used you and we were glad she gave us your number.
