How Wheaton World Wide Moving Makes Community a Priority

January 29, 2021 | Wheaton News & Events

When you relocate, you’re not just moving into a new home; you’re moving into a new community. We know the value of people and neighborhoods, and that’s why we invest in communities across the country. It’s also why we support and enact green initiatives for environmental sustainability.

We’re a moving company with integrity, and we want to leave the world a better place for the next generation of movers and shakers. What sets Wheaton apart? These are a few of the organizations we have supported over the years and the steps we continue to take to make a difference at a community level.

Lead a Child to a Horse

Give Kids The World Village is a special place. It’s a resort in central Florida that provides cost-free vacations for children with critical diseases and their families. Stepping onto the grounds is like stepping into a fairy book. It’s an escape most of the kids wouldn’t be able to take without the generosity of many hard-working people.

Wheaton is proud to sponsor Keaton’s Korral, the village’s horse stable where kids from all walks of life get to ride and commune with horses. We’re proud to be part of this gift of time away for families burdened by crippling health issues. There’s no better feeling than seeing a child light up while they ride a horse for the first time.

The Move Against Hunger

Every day we move hundreds of families across the country. They trust us with moving their lives and belongings. Many times, we see things get discarded in the transition, for example. People throw away items, including food, that they no longer need rather than pay movers to take them to the new home.

One of our agents noticed this waste and came up with the idea to collect nonperishable food and useful items left behind and distribute them to families who could use them. Move for Hunger was born, and since its inception, we’ve partnered with other quality moving companies to bring millions of meals to those who need them.

When you move with us, simply set aside the food and items you wish to donate. Contact your Wheaton agent and let them know you’d like to participate in Move for Hunger, and we’ll do the rest to see that your donation makes it to those who can use it.

Moving Toward a Greener Day

As a big company we’re aware of our footprint on the planet, and we’re always looking at ways to reduce it. Some of the ways we’ve adapted for a more environmentally sustainable world include:

  • Recycling tons of used cardboard and packaging.
  • Switching to efficient fluorescent lighting in our warehouses.
  • Upgrading appliances to eco-friendlier models.
  • Using recycled paper and sustainable inks.
  • Committing to go green.

We’re proud to be recognized by the Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce as a “Green Business,” and we know there are always ways to do better.

A Moving Company with a Heart the Size of Our Trucks

Not only do we want you, our customer, to feel a special level of service and care as you transition to a new location and new life, but we also want the world to know we care. We all have a responsibility to make things better. If you’re considering what to look for in a moving company, it would be our privilege to see how we can move you. Call or contact us today, and let’s talk.
