NEW YORK, April 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Since March 2010, iMoveGREEN, an agent for Bekins Van Lines and a premier green moving company in the United States has been certifying that their fleet of moving trucks is BED BUG FREE. Fed up with Bed Bugs and with no clear answer from authorities on how to deal with the infestation, Jeffrey E. Sitt, President and CEO of iMoveGREEN, recently added a powerful new weapon to his company's arsenal of Bed Bug protocols…HEAT! And plenty of it!
Sitt says his company does whatever it can to prevent Bed Bugs every day. "It's all about the Bed Bugs; they are causing a real pandemic and the problem is only going to get worse as spring unfolds." Therefore, a few months ago iMoveGREEN began offering a cremation option to its clients—preheating trucks to 120 degrees for about 1 hour, which cremates and kills Bed Bugs, along with most other insects that tend to free-load on the trucks. This service builds on the company's previous Bed Bug-preventing measures, which include spraying moving equipment with organic Bed Bug spray and using Bed Bug sniffing dogs to inspect the trucks. As an extra precaution, iMoveGREEN also heats all moving blankets used for each day's move. "We call the heat treatment option 'Operation Blast'm'," says Sitt.
The only EPA Green Power Partner moving company in America, iMoveGREEN uses 100% renewable wind energy to power its offices, and provides clients with environmentally conscious packing materials such as reusable plastic containers and biodegradable packing peanuts. "Bedbugs have become a major concern for many Americans, so enforcing procedures to prevent them seemed like a logical next step in providing a unique moving experience," explains Jeffrey E. Sitt, iMoveGREEN's owner and Transportation Company chief.
That unique experience and iMoveGREEN's commitment to the environment is further demonstrated through a partnership with the Nature Conservancy, where Sitt and his team pledge a percentage of their proceeds to plant trees in the Brazilian rainforest for each person who moves with them.
