It hasn’t been an overnight process, by any stretch of the imagination, but we’re finally seeing businesses taking an environmentally friendly turn. In some industries, it’s a lot more important for them to do so than others. For example, transport companies are a lot more conscious of this matter than business which may only operate online. Those who are able to prove their green credentials are able to prosper in these early days of environmentally-minded businesses. One of the areas where we’re seeing more turning towards this sort of thinking is with removals companies. They might not sound like they’re a very significant chunk of the business vehicles on the roads, but you’d be surprised.
You may be wondering who cares about having their house removals carried out in an eco manner, but many do these days, and it’s important that more people think this way. The greater the number of individuals who put in some sort of effort to find alternative ways to do various things in their lives, the better it is for everyone. A lot seem to forget, but it’s a collective effort and it starts with a few people putting their heads together and deciding to make a change before the rest follow in their path. One company in particular who seems to get this concept is one based down in South London.
Trust us when we say that we’ve seen it all, when it comes to companies that do removals in London. With the downright nasty to the shockingly unreliable the most likely you’ll remember, it’s a good job that there are some decent ones out there. It’s for this reason that firms like Eco Movers feel like a breath of fresh air for anyone who’s been through the whole house removals process before. Familiarise yourself with what they do and how they distinguish themselves from others out there, especially those who offer removals in London and beyond it. Whilst others are concerned about driving down their prices, these guys boast electric vans, the use of packing boxes made from recycled card and other measures too.
Everyone knows that petrol prices are doing nothing but going up. Year after year, we end up in shock when we head over to the nearest petrol station. Some people cower away from looking at the price of it, simply because it costs so much and they don’t want to think about how much it costs to fill up their tank. It’s true that this is a big issue, but it doesn’t mean that you have to keep refilling as often as you currently do. In fact, you have quite a lot of influence in changing things for you and – in some areas – clawing back some money, by being careful with your driving. Here to assist you in showing how you’ll be able to improve on your fuel consumption is an app (originally designed for lorry drivers) which trains people to address where they can make improvements to the way that they get around on the roads.
As released by Renault and available to get via the App Store, the Truck Fuel Eco Driving app is designed to make the user think a lot more about their nuances in driving around. Although the simulation is based around a lorry/truck, it’s all about showing you how to deal with various driving situations in manners that will enable you to cut costs of consumption. You’re just guzzling down the fuel if you put little thought into the way you drive. Slamming on the breaks, accelerating at unnecessary times and various other measures are doing nothing but to eat away at your petrol or diesel, when you want to be more careful with it.
It might take a while to get used to the simulation and driving the truck, but once you get the hang of it, it’s going to give you the confidence to use what you’ve learned in everyday situations. That’s the whole aim of it and why Renault put it together in the first place. Starting with their lorry drivers, if everyone works out more eco-friendly ways to drive on the UK roads, it has benefits for all, as we’ll use far less fuel and subsequently produce far less emissions. A lot of it is common sense, but the rest will really help you out.
