The TWO MEN AND A TRUCK family atmosphere  is a big driving force that keeps our employees motivated and moving forward with their careers.

Part of the encouragement in moving careers forward is the  Mary Ellen’s Moving People Forward Scholarship Program, which is a year-long program consisting of training courses, assignments, and presentation of a business plan at the end of the program. In the end, one person is chosen as the official winner, and is given $50,000 toward starting their own TWO MEN AND A TRUCK moving franchise in partnership with their current franchisee!
