As a prospective franchisee, you don’t just want to invest in a franchise that will yield a high return on investment – you want a partner who will build a healthy, mutually-beneficial relationship with you, and provide ample opportunities for expansion and growth.
Not only is TWO MEN AND A TRUCK an industry leader in local and long-distance moving, storage solutions, business moving, and packing services, it was also voted a “Top 50 Franchise” in the Franchisee Satisfaction Awards. We believe this is due to our core values, which prioritize integrity, inclusion, and charitable giving. So, when franchisees look for a moving franchise opportunity abroad, it’s no surprise they choose us!
At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, we hold our franchisees to a high standard. You’ll have to be enthusiastic as we are, ready to learn, ask questions, work hard, and have a passion for our core values. In exchange, you’ll receive a sophisticated support system, an abundance of learning opportunities, and the newest technology.
Never owned a business before? Don’t worry. The level of support you’ll receive is unparalleled, as we employ subject matter experts to assist franchisees—especially those in their first or second year—in running various aspects of their business, including sales, marketing, bookkeeping, human resources, and IT.
We also offer training opportunities, including our annual company meeting and frontline staff meeting, classroom-style training classes, online-based training programs, and real-time training webinars — many of which allow you to hear directly from fellow franchisees. You’ll also get to attend “Gearing Up,” a week-long class at our corporate office that will educate you on all of the facets of running the day-to-day operations at your franchise.
Every TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchisee has the benefit of our patented estimating system, which makes it easy to create customer estimates, as well as mobile tablets for our movers and drivers. Keeping our franchisees on the cutting edge of the moving industry is crucial to ensuring your success!
All franchises have investment costs, but we try to give you as much bang for your buck as possible. Our initial investment costs cover training, insurance, six months of working capital, and local and national licensing costs.
To make these fees even more affordable and manageable, we encourage potential franchisees to take advantage of our mini-market model. The mini-market model gives you access to smaller-than-normal territories (areas of between 75,000-200,000 people), but still have a high demand for moving services. We want to be accessible to all communities, regardless of size, and without excluding capable franchisees due to startup costs.

Our franchise model has been so successful in the U.S., we’ve seen a rapid expansion abroad.
We’ve had 90 consecutive months of growth in 380 locations across the mainland U.S., Canada, UK, and Ireland, and we couldn’t be more excited for our overseas franchisees.
Ireland and the UK
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK currently has a franchise in the Dublin area, as well as England’s Greater Newcastle area. In both Ireland and the UK, nearly 10 percent of the population moves every year. The UK removals industry was worth nearly £1 billion in 2015, made lucrative by the constantly flowing stream of residential and commercial removals, and social housing removals, and the growth of the self-storage market.
While not exactly overseas, Canada has proven to be a great international home for our franchise. Initially covering the Ontario market, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK now serves Canadians coast to coast, from Vancouver to Halifax. Check out our available locations to see what’s still up for grabs!
