FlatRate: Green Movers in NYC and Beyond
People are often astounded to find out that FlatRate is one of the top green movers in the country. Given the number of trucks and facilities we operate, it's a challenge to be a green moving company. But we love challenges! Here are a few of the ways we've set the industry standard for green.
Green Moving Company Facts
- Much of our fleet operates with diesel particulate filters that reduce hydrocarbons by 50% and particulate matter by 90+% over the current 2004 emission standards.
- Years ago when people drove past our Bronx headquarters they wondered what was up with the roof! Well that was before the popularity of solar-paneling really took off. We're proud to have a roof that generates a lot of the juice at our state-of-the-art call center. That's green movers, NYC!
- With 300,000 square feet of space in storage facilities around the country (and the world!), we are not just a green moving company but a green storage company as well. With modern climate control and efficient lighting, we make every effort to be green movers you can feel proud to hire.
- We fund clean energy and efficiency projects with verified reductions in greenhouse gas emissions via Terra Pass, a group that helps reduce our carbon footprint.
- We formed the UPCYCLE Program with the Salvation Army. We bring two boxes to every move, and free of charge, we'll deliver your unwanted toys, books, clothes, and small household goods to the Salvation Army to distribute for sale at its New York area stores.
- Do you need green moving boxes, NYC? Our box delivery program helps reduce emissions throughout the city by eliminating the need for you to travel to find or pick up boxes at multiple locations.
- A majority of our marketing materials are produced on 100% recycled paper.
- We go above and beyond the recycling mandates of the municipalities in which you are moving from and to. Every effort is made to recycle waste from each and every moving projects we tackle.
