Green Moves and Environmentally-
Friendly Relocations

When you think about the environmental consequences of moving house: the packing materials, the trucks, the petrol, the cranes, the containers and the ships, it is easy to believe that you are also significantly adding to the world's carbon footprint (the carbon emissions which contribute to global warming and climate change).

However, by using a shipping container and coastal shipping service for your house move and relocation you create a carbon footprint that is smaller than one created by using any other method. In many cases, Container Relocations' moving service creates no carbon footprint at all by using international shipping vessels already travelling between ports in New Zealand wherever possible.

 

NZ House Removals & International Removals Green Moves by Container Relocations

This means for both domestic and overseas house removals, Container Relocations uses the most environmentally-friendly moving methods possible as opposed to other removalists who rely more heavily on trucks and road transport.

Environmental Benefits of Shipping

  • Coastal shipping requires no costly highway or road maintenance
  • Transport ships can carry 1,000 containers (on average)
  • Ships keep extra heavy traffic off already-congested roads
  • Domestically-operated shipping is 8 times more fuel efficient than road transport and nearly twice as efficient as rail
  • Lower fuel consumption - it takes 62 litres of fuel to move a 20ft container from Auckland to Christchuch by sea, 500 litres to move it by truck
  • If Container Relocations loads your container onto an international vessel already transiting between New Zealand ports, there is effectively no carbon footprint and no additional fuel consumption, as that vessel is already travelling. Adding your container will not affect its fuel consumption.

Container Removals' Green Moves

As well as minimising road transport, Container Removals is committed to its 'green moving policy' by making sure that its practises and those of its partners: minimise the risk of pollution, use shipping and transport methods which are less harmful to the environment, use non-renewable resources wisely,reducing waste and recyling material.

Container Removals also aims to reduce its carbon footprint by:

  • Using bamboo flooring in its new containers (bamboo is a renewable and natural resource)
  • Recycling all paper, cardboard and plastic packaging
  • Re-using all cardboard products whenever possible
  • Recyling of all paper and cardboard office materials
  • Recyling of all plastic and aluminium items
  • Using environmentally cleaning products for house-keeping, cleaning services and containers
  • Using power wisely and turning off whenever possible
  • Using recycled materials for packing.
