While most summer-lovers are looking forward to a relaxing weekend away from work, our teams at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® are gearing up for our busiest time of year. On Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® will experience its busiest weekend of the year, totaling 5,400 moves across the country in just those two days. This averages out to about 21 moves per franchise or three moves each minute! We cannot wait to get started, as this will be a great opportunity to move so many of our customers forward on to the next chapters of their lives.
As exciting as this is, we also know how stressful the moving process can be. Because of this, we have helpful tips and tricks to make your experience the best it can be. Together, we can ensure our busiest weekend of the year is also the best weekend of the year.
Get (and stay!) organized
We want to ensure you are prepared and ready for us when we arrive, and we know just how to help make sure that happens!
- Pack and label your boxes according to which room they will go in at the new place and have them in a centralized location when the movers arrive. This will make it easier on you and on your movers for unloading and unpacking.
- Make sure all appliances and electronics are unplugged before we arrive. You also may want to take a photo or make a note of how your electronics are set up before you unplug and pack. This will save you time later and maybe even a call to the cable guy.
- Be sure your movers have enough space to move! Not only inside your home but outside as well. It’s important your movers have adequate parking for the moving truck near your driveway or entrance, and that walkways are clear to avoid trip hazards.
Being organized is important! If you take these steps beforehand, you’ll be sure to come out ahead.
Keep communication open with your movers
With more than 30 years of experience in the moving industry, there isn’t much we haven’t seen at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®. It is important to communicate with us throughout all aspects of your moving process so we can provide you the best experience possible.
“Even if you don’t know the exact day of your move, calling in early and giving us an idea makes things easier. This gives us an opportunity to create more options to fit the needs of your move,” said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Boise General Manager Chris Jones.
The more communication we can have with our customers, the faster and easier the job will go, and the quicker you can be settled into your new place. Even after your move, keep in touch! We love to hear reviews of things we did well or even things we can improve on for our future moves.
Try not to stress
We’ve got this! Our professionally trained movers have the muscle and experience to handle your moving stress, and we are here to exceed your expectations. This is an exciting time for you and we want you to enjoy it. In the end, all you should have to worry about is how you’re going to decorate your new place. Even with this busy weekend ahead we are excited and inspired by the sheer amount of families we will be able to help and interact with, and we are well-prepared for the challenge. With your help and participation, we are looking forward to this fun adventure!
