The world of franchising can be an incredibly rewarding experience for business owners, providing them the opportunity to buy into a proven system and work freely in the parameters of an already established brand. One of the top franchising destinations on the market today is in the moving industry, and one of the best moving company opportunities is with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®.
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is the first and largest franchised moving company in the United States, establishing themselves as the leader in the moving industry with over 30 years of high-quality customer service. If you’re a business owner who places a high value on family atmosphere, quality service, and giving back to the community – TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is the best moving company for you.
“On a daily basis, I enjoy providing a service to customers that have a need, and making a stressful time a little easier,” said Bryan Feldman, multi-unit TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® franchisee with locations in Florida, South Carolina, and Virginia. “I was provided an opportunity to purchase a franchise and since then my wife, Rebecca, and I have enjoyed helping our staff grow into their careers at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® and beyond. It is very rewarding to provide opportunities for others.”
Known as the “Movers Who Care®”, this description isn’t taken lightly at any of our TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® locations, and we take pride in making a difference in any way possible.
“I am proud to tell everyone that I own a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® franchise,” said Ryan Knowles, multi-unit TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® franchisee with locations in Florida and Texas. “I can’t even tell you the amount of times I’ve told someone I work for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® and they mentioned how much they loved us and how they have used our company many times.”
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is about more than just running a moving operation – it’s about making an impact, something that is echoed across the system from franchisees to movers.
We participate in cause-marketing campaigns year-round, from our annual Movers for Moms® campaign in the spring, to our four fall-cause marketing campaigns in the fall, and everything in between. Franchises also have the ability to work with charitable causes in their local markets, which creates a rewarding and meaningful opportunity for all employees.
“Charity work is my favorite part of marketing for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® – it’s so great to bring our employees together for a common cause,” said Carolyn Chynoweth, marketing manager for the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® North Dallas, South Dallas, McKinney, Carrollton, and Garland (TX) locations. “After a charity event, our staff mentions how it was so rewarding and such a good feeling to put our resources to good use. We are so lucky to have trucks and manpower to be able to bless others in the community who need assistance.”
The rewarding experience of franchising with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® doesn’t stop with giving back to the community, either. From the business side of the franchise, we provide our franchisees endless resources and support to ensure they can be as profitable as possible.
From a team of subject matter experts at our Home Office location in Lansing, Mich., to the online training classes, webinars, and in-person training courses and events, we want to see our franchisees succeed.
“The support that we get from our franchisor is top-notch,” Knowles said. “My franchisor is sort of like my business partner. I rely on them several times a week for all sorts of support ranging from DOT regulations to IT services. On top of that, my fellow franchisees are the best. I almost feel as though we are all part of a cross-country brotherhood. I can call just about any of them at any time, and they will drop what they are doing and take my call.”
These kind of sentiments are relayed all across the country from people running franchises, and it’s that kind of family-feel that makes TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® the best moving company for franchising.
“I feel so fortunate to work with these amazing people on a daily basis,” said Terry Bruns, franchisee of the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Boise, Idaho location. “As an organization, we try really hard every day to be the best we can be and are always trying to do the right thing for our employees and our customers. We get awesome feedback, and I feel we make a real difference in people’s lives.”
