Simi Valley moving company now running trucks on biodiesel

A Simi Valley, Calif., moving company, Acclaimed Movers & Storage, is now running its moving trucks on biodiesel.  

“The BioFleet of trucks is one thing that Acclaimed is doing to leave a smaller mark on the environment,” the company stated, adding that it provides great service while helping to keep the environment as clean as possible.

“Not only does it produce less carbon dioxide emission, a gas that is responsible for climate change,” the company said, “but it is also more fuel efficient. That makes for a pretty good deal for both the environment and the consumer of the biodiesel. It also reduces sulfur and hydrocarbon emissions, creating a cleaner atmosphere.”

Acclaimed Movers & Storage said moving trucks put on a lot of miles making pick-ups, drop-offs and trips to the warehouse. “That makes for a lot of fuel consumption for the large trucks and a lot of pollutants released into the air. When biodiesel is used, that pollution can be cut down by as much as 80 percent.”
