When you are ready to get started on your next move, it is always a great idea to try and go as green as possible. In the spring we are reminded about how beautiful the earth is, and at Merit Moving we want to help keep it as clean as possible during every move. That is why we made a great list of things residential movers can do before their next relocation. Do not hesitate to call our dedicated local movers with any questions you may have.

Declutter and Recycle

One way you can cut down on packing materials is through decluttering your house before your next move. When you get rid of items that you do not need to move you will use less boxes. This will also cut down on the time it takes to pack and actively move your home. With any items you decide you do not need it is always a great idea to drop them off at Goodwill or Salvation Army. You can also recycle your boxes when you are finished unpacking.

Pack Efficiently with Plastic Bins or Totes

If you already have storage containers in your home, you can be eco-friendly by using them to move. Make sure each tote is strong and capable of supporting what you are packing in it. It is always best to fit items snugly into moving containers with proper padding, but you do not have to overdo it. Once you are at your new home these bins can be unpacked at your new home and used for storage!

Make Your New Home Energy Efficient

There are a lot of ways you can easily make your new home more energy efficient. One of the best ways that will also save you money over time is through energy efficient lighting. These light bulbs are made to last longer in your home!

You can also make your home eco-friendlier by using eco cleaning products and planting a garden. The less chemicals you put into your body and into the air the better for the environment.
