Consistent involvement is one of the main things that makes Exodus Moving and Storage a pillar in our community. We put our money, our time and our effort where our mouth is when it comes to promoting local business and creating a prosperous environment to improve the quality of life in the areas in which we live and serve. But one of the most important priorities when it comes to building a positive future in our neighborhoods, is the environment. We try harder than any other moving and storage company to promote green energy practices throughout our day to day operations, providing an example for our employees, our customers and our communities as a whole.
One of the ways we are involved in our community in Fort Collins is through an organization call Trees, Water & People. Every time we complete a move, we give back to the environment by planting a tree. By utilizing their “plant a tree” program, we are able to plant an average of about 2000 trees per year.
What is Trees, Water & People?
A registered 501c3 nonprofit organization, Trees, Water & People is an organization that was created in 1998 to play an active role in the conservation and management of the natural resources within communities. With a focus on the issues of climate change, clean water and the promotion of sustainability, Trees, Water & People helps people to not only protect the resources they have around them but to reach out to various parts of the globe that need help.
Created by Stuart Conway and Richard Fox, this important group of conservationalists has created a myriad of both local programs in Fort Collins Colorado and beyond, including Reforestation Programs & Tribal Lands Renewable Energy Programs. Much of the work done by Trees, Water & People is focused in both North and South America and has earned both national and international recognition and awards for educational and conservation efforts.
Green Environment Programs for Businesses
Trees, Water & People is committed to empowering local businesses to reduce their waste and increase environmentally friendly standards in the workplace. On average, ten trees are cut down for every one tree that is replanted worldwide. In an effort to offset our carbon emissions, Exodus is proud to partner with Trees, Water & People in global reforestation by participating in their tree planting program.

When it’s time to move there are several questions you must ask yourself. But perhaps the most important two questions are: What is my timeline and what are my resources? How much time you have to plan a move can dictate how much help you need. Financial resources are often considered, but how do you put a price on sanity or physical well being? Many people forget to consider how physically capable they are to pack and move. Still others don’t take the time to consider the stress that going though and securing all of your belongings can create in your mind and in your life.
At Exodus we have a saying. “Sometimes when you do it yourself, you do yourself in.” Considering what your time is worth in addition to your overall peace of mind is important when deciding if you are planning to handle a residential or commercial move on your own. Most regular people have never been trained to properly pack a crate. Individuals that are not professional movers are often unclear as to how heavy a box should be in order to avoid back strain and breakage. If you have every tried to relocate a pool table, a garden sculpture or even antique furniture, you might know just how complex it can be. The more life you lead, the more stuff you collect and the more you need the professional expertise and supplies offered by a fully licensed moving and storage company like Exodus.
We are happy to provide both new and used supplies for packing and moving. Everything you could want or need is available from Exodus at incredibly reasonable prices. We provide all that’s needed from specialty mattress boxes to bubble wrap and everything in between. We are also passionate about facilitating Green moves. By this we mean supplying free packing boxes that have been used before in order to keep waste low and functionality high. In our great State of Colorado, being ecologically responsible is a widespread way of life and we are happy not only to embrace it as a company but to facilitate it in the community.
A professional packer is someone who not only knows the most effective way to fill a box but how to make sure that everything arrives in perfect shape to its final location. Our staff is expertly trained to pack your home including the hardest things such as fine china, fragile artwork and collectables of all kinds. Exodus constantly maintains one of the lowest damage ratios in the moving industry. In the end, by deciding not to invite your friends over to help, risking loss and breakage, or deciding to attempt to pack everything alone, hiring experts to pack can not only save you time but also money. By using our valuation options, you can guarantee that if something does happen to your stuff, we will pay for it, no questions asked.
