For business professionals all around the world, they are constantly on the lookout for new and exciting opportunities that will not only continue their development as a business owner, but provide them a rewarding and profitable working experience. Some choose to start their own business, but a route that provides a more stable opportunity is franchising.
Franchising allows you to buy into a proven model of success and open your own location as part of a national brand, working as the business owner and overseeing everything that happens at your location. One particular route of franchising that has seen a major spike is opening a moving franchise, and one of the top companies to franchise with is TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®.
Going strong for more than 30 years now, we have established ourselves as the leaders in the moving industry by providing outstanding moving services from coast to coast, and working to put customers first and take the negative stigma out of moving. Having posted over 93 months of consecutive growth as a system, the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK brand is stronger than ever, and is an exciting option for those looking for moving franchise opportunities.
“We love the franchise model – you don’t have to reinvent the wheel,” said Bert Kolz, president of the Blackwolf Group, a multi-unit TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchise group. “TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is a well-respected brand, it’s a high quality brand, and we don’t have to reinvent things. So we can basically use the road map that TWO MEN AND A TRUCK gives to us, and then expand that into our local markets and make them successful.”
If you’re on the fence about opening a moving franchise with us but aren’t sure if you’re up to speed on all things moving, don’t worry – we have all of the training and support you need to be knowledgeable and efficient running your moving operation.
“There are very few brands that are as committed to franchisee support as TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®,” said Nick Powills, the CEO of No Limit Agency. “From the depth of corporate departments to the depth of training at the corporate headquarters, franchisees can clearly see their royalties at work. This is a business focused on never being satisfied, which in turn, will continue to change the lives of those who are allowed to join this exclusive club.”
The training and support you need to become a successful franchisee starts with the team at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s Home Office headquarters, located in Lansing, Mich. It’s here that we staff a team of subject matter experts in a variety of fields, all with one goal in mind – to help you operate at a high level. From training and development to human resources, marketing, sales, information technology, risk management, DOT and fleet safety, and accounting, we cover all aspects of the business world with highly trained people who are willing to help.
To complement this outstanding team of professionals with whom you’ll be in direct contact with, we offer extensive training to get you up-to-speed on the moving industry and how we operate as a system.
New franchisees are invited to attend our “Gearing Up” training program at Home Office, where you learn the ins and outs of running a moving company franchise. We also feature an expansive online training system, real-time webinars covering a variety of relevant topics that are hosted by our subject matter experts, and other online training material to make sure you have all the information you need.
We want to see you succeed as a franchisee in our system and add yet another successful chapter to our list of over 350 locations across the country, and it all starts with this training and support.
“They offer incredible support,” Kolz said. “TWO MEN AND A TRUCK has been doing franchising since the 80s, so they know what they are doing. It’s almost a turn-key operation in the sense that they line you up with all of the vendors you need, whether it’s the systems that everyone uses or other vendors that are optional. From lining up vendors to the processes and procedures, it’s almost turn-key.”
