The “Movers Who Care®” difference
Each of our 350 plus franchise locations have been preparing their professionally-trained teams to tackle each move with our renowned professionalism, ensuring a smooth moving process.
These moving teams will be working relentlessly to ensure our customers are comfortable during their moves, going out of their way to get to know the customers and establish a relationship to ease the stress.
“I would say the biggest thing [to make customers comfortable] is just getting to know the customer,” said Jabrion Burnside, a mover and driver at our TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Pasadena, Cali., location. “At the end of the day, we have a service we are performing for them, but nothing is better than them actually getting to know us on a more personal level, because that allows them to trust us more and it adds to the overall quality of the move.”
