College HUNKS Hauling Junk and Moving is moving toward a green future with Xos.
The company purchased its first 100% battery-electric truck which will be used at a College HUNKS location in New Jersey before rolling out to the rest of the system. College HUNKS states it is the first electric moving truck in the U.S.
"By going electric, we're able to hold true to several of our core values and beliefs from building leaders to being innovative to staying conscious of our environmental impact," Nick Friedman said, Co-Founder and Visionary of College HUNKS.
"Throughout our organization, we emphasize the core value of building leaders, and this includes being leaders within our industry. By exploring electric vehicles, we can continue to demonstrate our commitment to leadership and stay ahead of the pack while also leaning into innovation. We are thrilled to take these steps that can further benefit our teams, customers, and the communities that we serve," Friedman added.
