Amodio Moving & Storage (http://www.amodio.com), a leading provider of commercial moving services, has made a unique commitment to Women’s Breast Cancer Research in finding a cure.
Amodio, headquartered in Hartford, CT, rents plastic crates called PINKBOX’s as an alternative to the cardboard boxes used for office moves, and will donate a portion of the profits from the rental of its containers to Women’s Breast Cancer Research.
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but Amodio is not limiting its efforts to one month. “We are committed to this cause and to donating a portion of our profits year-round,” says Amodio President Frank Amodio, Sr.
Amodio continues, “This is a great opportunity for people to come together to help beat this disease. Amodio is proud to sponsor Women’s Breast Cancer Research in its tireless efforts against Cancer. As a PINKBOX rental customer of Amodio Moving, you are helping women find the medical information, support and hope they need at a time when they need it most. We intentionally picked crates that were bright pink, in recognition of Amodio’s commitment to Women’s Breast Cancer Research.”
The company says its crates offer a cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution to moving needs and are designed to safely and efficiently transport such items as computer equipment, documents and library collections. Renting reusable crates for moves is common in Europe and the idea is catching on in the United States.
According to Amodio, plastic offers many benefits over cardboard. “On average it costs 30% less to rent plastic than to buy cardboard.” Amodio’s PINKBOX cubic foot capacity also means that fewer boxes are needed per move. Plastic crates also reduce labor costs because they come fully assembled. They require no tape, so packing is a lot faster. And, there are no storage or disposal costs, because the crates are delivered to the moving site and picked up after the move. Since this is done within a specified time frame, they’re unpacked quickly and down time is minimized. Plastic crates are sturdier so they also do a better job protecting the contents being moved. And plastic boxes are ecologically sound. No trees are cut down to make the crates, and they’re 100% recyclable.
According to Amodio, the average rental is for two weeks, but it can run to 2 months, depending upon the type of job. The typical rental involves 400 to several thousand crates, but they also get much smaller orders for as few as 24 boxes depending upon the customer’s needs and circumstances.
Now in its 88th year of business, Amodio Moving & Storage (http://www.amodio.com) uses a full product line of other specialized equipment to meet any moving equipment need.
