San Diego Movers Provide Green Service that Saves Money

San Diego Residential House

Manpower Movers of San Diego is the first moving company in southern California to go green. Manpower Movers, who is located in San Diego and provides local and long distance moves, is now offering an eco-crates program to reduce the amount of boxes their customers use on each move.

The average move can use anywhere from 60-120 boxes, and most of the boxes are discarded at the end of the move. Even the boxes that are recycled require a significant amount of energy to make and recycle. The eco-crates Manpower Movers provides, are designed to eliminate boxes all together.

The eco-crates, which Manpower Movers offers for free, are dropped off at the customer’s house before each move. At the end of the move, Manpower Movers will pick up the eco-crates once the customer finishes unpacking.

The eco-crates not only save the environment, but they also save the customer money. Many people think of green products as being over priced and more expensive. In the case of Manpower’s eco-crates, their goal is to save the customer time and money. Since the service is free and is not incorporated into the overall price, customer’s save money by not having to purchase boxes. And by not having to accumulate boxes over the span of a couple weeks, the customer saves time by not having to go to various commercial outlets looking for used boxes.

So far, the program has been a success. It’s been a win-win for people moving and also for Manpower Movers. Manpower projects they’re saving about 3600 boxes per year, and saving their customers about $150 per move. For more information on Manpower Movers eco-crates service in San Diego, they are located at 7960 Silverton Avenue Suite 125, San Diego, CA 92126 and can be reached at 619-961-8800.

Property Managers See Rise in Rental Prices

Property management companies have seen a steady rise in rental prices over the last year, so says Scott of Vienna Property Management. Rental vacancies have gone down, driving prices up. Over a year ago the market was moving sideways with not much increase or decline in prices or vacancies. For Folsom Property Management, there has been a 44% increase in property rental rates since this time last year.

Just a year later prices are on the increase. The bodes great for the housing market. As rental prices continue to climb the idea of purchasing a home will become much more desirable. Since the housing bubble burst, rental prices have been much lower than the average mortgage. Financially it didn’t really make much sense to purchase a home because it was possible to rent a comparable home for half the price. We’re starting to see a shift that cannot be overlooked. Both in the property management business and real estate business.

Vienna Property Management provides management services in Sacramento, Roseville, Granite Bay, Folsom, and Lincoln. They are a small property management company that is growing quickly with properties all over Sacramento County. They’re quickly acquiring both residential and commercial properties. As property owners start to see an increase in rental prices, it makes more sense for them to use a property management company so that they can capitalize on the increase. Often times if property owners don’t use a property management company, they miss out on the additional rental rates they could achieve in a growing market.
