TWO MEN AND A TRUCK: The Story of the Stickmen

As we turn the calendar to 2023, we’d like to take a moment and reflect on the incredible journey of the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK brand.

For nearly four decades, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK has helped customers move forward in their lives by providing professional, high-quality moving services. What started as literally two men and a truck – Founder Mary Ellen Sheet’s sons, Brig and Jon – moving people’s belongings around the Lansing, Mich., area in the mid-1980s, has turned into an international moving company and a leader within the moving industry. With over 350 locations in the United States spanning 47 states and locations in Canada, Ireland, and the United Kingdom, nobody could have imagined the heights this brand could reach when it was just the two boys moving with a ’66 Ford pickup truck.

Throughout this time, countless franchisees have gone on to achieve their dreams of business ownership, and thousands upon thousands of people have been able to call TWO MEN AND A TRUCK their career through a variety of different roles. It’s been a long journey, but we feel we are just getting started.
