VAN NUYS, Calif. and LOS ANGELES, Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Rent A Moving Box asks Los Angeles residents and businesses to "think outside the cardboard box" by offering a better way to move without trashing the planet. This new service from Advanced Green Solutions rents heavy duty, reusable plastic moving boxes to residents and businesses for the duration of their move to help cut the time, cost, hassle and waste associated with their moves.
"Rent A Moving Box perfectly compliments our mission to provide smart but simple services to help clients save money and reduce their environmental impact," said Michael Gottlieb, managing partner and co-founder of Advanced Green Solutions. "Since our launch in June, Rent A Moving Box has helped more than 100 clients move and kept more than 5,000 pounds of waste cardboard out of landfills. Now, as we expand our presence in the market, we look forward to making an even bigger impact on the planet and people's wallets."
Rent A Moving Box delivers moving boxes throughout Los Angeles County at a time that fits into their clients' busy schedule. Boxes arrive ready to pack in 3 consumer-friendly sizes. The boxes have comfortable handles, stack perfectly and easily lock enabling movers to stack boxes higher and load and off load faster to cut moving expenses and better protect people's possessions. When the customer is unpacked, Rent A Moving Box picks up the boxes, hand inspects and cleans them before renting the boxes to another client. As an added benefit, apartment managers and residents don't have to pay extra waste disposal fees with this zero-waste moving alternative.
"Packing your life into a box and moving it someplace new is stressful, time consuming and expensive," said Ryan Afromsky, managing partner and Advanced Green Solutions co-founder. "People love the convenience of having the boxes delivered and picked up. What's more, they actually feel good about moving, because they are doing something for the environment."
"I can't tell you how much we have loved the moving process using Rent A Moving Box. They're fantastic!," said Oak Park resident Sydney Fry who used Rent A Moving Box in September. "Even the movers were raving about how easy they were to move and stack. I didn't think anything in this world could make moving a fun process but Rent A Moving Box surely has!"
The environmental benefits of zero-waste moving are profound. More than 40 million people move each year in the United States. If each person uses on average 25 cardboard boxes for their move that equates to about 1 billion boxes used each year—most of which end up in landfills. Paper and cardboard account for 41% of all municipal waste in the United States.
