I have known Marty since my days running Energy Veterans, so I was familiar with his energy efficiency expertise. Now as the owner of a manufacturing facility, I use Marty all the time. Marty is accessible, knowledgeable, and works with me to minimize my expenses. His company has it's own equipment (e.g. scissor lift, various power monitors & loggers) that again allows him to minimize costs. And he's just a good guy to deal with.

Junk Removal

Had items that I needed to get rid of but because they were awkward and heavy was unable to do myself. Mr. Reading came looked at what I wanted gone and gave me a reasonable quote. He arrived when he said he would and I now have a little more space.
