When making an investment and opening a business, it’s crucial you are investing wisely in a viable industry. Moving may not be the first industry that comes to mind, but it should be. The moving industry is predicted to grow substantially over the next four years, bringing in nearly $17 billion in revenue annually.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® had a record-breaking year in 2015, hitting the highest revenue year in system history and completing our 5.5 millionth move. Although the momentum doesn’t stop there as we anticipate another landmark year.
It’s no secret the housing market took a hard hit in 2009, though has been back on the rise in recent years. As the housing market continues to grow, the demand from those in need of moving services does as well. With customers moving into larger homes, downsizing, or relocating for a career change, the moving industry proves itself a valuable investment.
Much like growing families, businesses big and small find themselves with the same need. Whether a business is undergoing renovations, moving across town, or across the country, a professional moving company is who they turn to. Moving companies minimize disruption from day-to-day business operations and are trained to quickly and efficiently move teams and their belongings in order for companies to focus on what’s important … the business!
The moving industry relies heavily on its people to successfully execute the high number of incoming home and business moves from beginning to end, resulting in ample career opportunities and even more revenue. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® welcomed more than 1,000 new team members in the month of March alone in preparation for the busy summer months ahead and projects to hire more than 9,000 employees in total throughout 2016.
As we continue to lead the moving industry with innovative ideas, we’d be lying if we didn’t say it is an exciting time to be at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®! With plans to sign a total of 30 new locations in 2016, we’ve already opened one new location each week during the first quarter. We are excited to continue expanding the brand across the country focusing on top markets in many states including Washington, California, and Oregon.
