A Green International Moving Company?
You may wonder how an international moving company can “go green”. When we first decided it was time to do our part and start practicing more eco-friendly habits, we approached this challenge with tremendous energy! Putting a great deal of time into researching what we could do to accomplish this, we were able to come up with some amazingly innovative, effective things that changed everything from the way we file and transfer information to the materials we use to protect your valuable possessions during your international relocation. Our goal is to provide better international relocation services with a green-mindset while maintain competitive rates within the international relocation industry. We are pleased to say we have accomplished this!
