As a business owner, it’s important to find a situation where you’re granted the flexibility to work based on your own personal decisions, while still having a solid support system to back you throughout your journey.
There are many ways to become your own boss and run your own business, and one of the best options is becoming a franchisee of a moving franchise. Owning a moving franchise is a business investment that can be tailored to your needs, especially with a company like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, which allows you to start up in available markets and work their proven system using the processes that have been developed over the last 30 years.
Making the call to join the first and largest franchise moving system in the country will put you in the driver’s seat for personal success, and allow you the chance to help Move People Forward® with an outstanding brand name reputation.
Flexibility with involvement
Franchising with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® gives you the chance to run your own operation, and stays true to the word “franchising”. Even though you’ll be given support through a proven network of other franchisees and TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s Home Office, it is your business.
You aren’t required to physically be at your franchise, or you can be there every day overseeing the operation – we have franchisees who do both. According to our numbers, 57 percent of franchisees in our system own one franchise, 23 percent own two franchises, and 20 percent own three or more franchises – some on-site, some remotely. These numbers demonstrate the fluidity of buying into our system, and also shows the diverse business backgrounds that our franchisees come from.
When you buy a moving franchise within the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® system, there are certain processes in place for you to follow, after all, that’s the norm in the franchise industry. However you do have the freedom as a business owner to make important and crucial decisions on how you’ll run your business. From the people you hire, to the way you market your business, ultimately you make these decisions.
A strong system of support
As any business owner knows, it’s always a good idea to bounce ideas off other people in similar situations, and with more than 350 locations across the United States, we have a vast system of franchisees you can work with. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® believes in transparency, meaning you can see everything that is going on throughout the system.
Another benefit to buying a moving company franchise with us is the outstanding Home Office support you receive. Our corporate office employs an expansive group of individuals divided up into specific teams of subject matter experts in all areas including marketing, accounting, human resources, franchise operations, risk and safety management, finance, IT support, and customer care support, as well as the ability to be in communication with our experienced executive team members.
An ever-changing business
The moving industry is running stronger than ever, and with 1 in 6 people moving each year, buying a moving franchise is always a good investment. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has a brand reach that extends from coast to coast, and has built a reputation over the course of 30 years that has made us a moving staple in local communities.
Along with our world-renowned customer service and moving services, we continue to lead the wave of innovation in the industry with new services like our Value Flex® long-distance service and our portable storage option.
