The summer season is upon us! And that means warmer weather, sunshine, and moving! The busiest time for moving around the country starts during the month of May and peaks around July, according to the American Moving and Storage Association.
As the “Movers Who Care®”, we at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® are gearing up for our own busy season, and our Busiest Move Weekend which falls June 23, 24, and 25. That weekend alone, we’re expected to complete more than 5,500 moves! This averages out to 20 moves per franchise with an average distance traveled of around 25 miles for our move teams.
“Busiest Move Weekend is something we are excited to celebrate each year,” said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® CEO Jeff Wesley. “Our locations take pride in our ability to move people forward each year with the best customer service experience in the industry. We are also excited to launch our new Value Flex® service this busy season, which is just another way we continue to serve our customers with a new, long-distance service.”
With more than 350 franchise locations in the United States, we will have our plates full with “Busiest Move Weekend”, and the amount of customers we’ll reach is bigger than ever before. Having recently completed our 6.5 millionth move, there isn’t a moving situation we aren’t prepared for in the moving and packing world.
St. Louis (MO), Columbus (OH), Des Moines (IA), Colorado Springs (CO), Tulsa (OK), Milwaukee (WI), Birmingham (AL), Charlotte (NC), Columbia (SC), and Cleveland (OH) are a few franchises within our system projected to knock out the most moves during this busy weekend, showing our reach across the map, moving our customers forward to a new stage in life.

Communication is key
