The TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® brand has never been stronger than it is right now, and the continued push to provide outstanding customer service and Move People Forward® has been reflected in the growth numbers seen across the board.
With the wrap up of Q1, the brand reached 72 consecutive months of record growth, with five consecutive months of double-digit growth. Year-over-year growth currently sits at 15%, which shows the company continues to head in the right direction of success.
“2017 is off to a great start, and we are building on close to 90 months of straight growth as we enter the second quarter,” said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® President Randy Shacka. “These record numbers are propelling us forward this summer, and we are very excited to roll out our Value Flex® offering, which is a flexible long-distance offering to complement our expedited service. Adding new services while growing at the rate we are growing is something we are all proud of.”
The number of system team members currently sits at 6,143, and is continuously on the rise as we look to add more talented individuals through all levels of the company with initiatives like the Career Move Month campaign. The hiring campaign allowed us to bring in more than 1,300 new employees to all levels of the system.
With over 350 locations in the United States and 33 International locations in Canada, the United Kingdom, and Ireland, the reach of our brand is covering a wide range. Across all of these franchise locations, we currently have nearly 2,700 trucks on the road, which are completing an impressive two moves per-minute.
We have continued to add franchises, and with the start of Q2, have opened our first two mini-market franchises in Kalispell and Missoula, Montana. These mini-markets will allow us the chance to tap into moving markets originally unfit for the traditional franchise size.
The end of Q1 will also see TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® launch the newest company-wide initiative with the Value Flex® long-distance moving service. Value Flex® is a flexible option for customers looking to move long-distance, and provides a more affordable long-distance service while offering customers great new features such as GPS-tracking and exact delivery dates.
“We are very proud of our over 370 locations worldwide and their dedication to innovation and customer service,” said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® CEO Jeff Wesley. “We close the quarter and begin 2017 with record growth and customer referral raters. The heavy lifting of all our locations and their teams are continuing to build upon the strength of the incredible TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® brand. As we continue to move customers forward this year, we will continue to impact charities, communities, and open up new offerings to our customers. Our core values and results are aligned, and this is a special for each and every customer and team member.”
