If you find yourself moving soon, there’s an important decision lingering – move the belongings yourself or hire professional movers?

It’s an age-old question that people have juggled for years, and one that people often struggle to make. There are some common misconceptions about hiring professional movers that often push people to move the belongings themselves, but is it really worth it?

Moving is already stressful enough, but pile on the need to find friends and family to do the heavy lifting with you, rent your own truck, ensure your items are packed away safely so you don’t damage them yourself …  the to-do list can pile up just as quickly as the stress.

The old saying “you get what you pay for” applies to the idea of hiring professional movers, and when you hire TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, you can feel good knowing you’re getting top-notch movers in the industry.

Free moving estimates- in-home or over the phone

Our Customer Service Representatives are ready to assist you in figuring out just what it will take for one of our moving teams to help you and what the cost will look like for your move! The best part of these moving estimates? They’re free.

How much does TWO MEN AND A TRUCK cost?

Each TWO MEN AND A TRUCK moving location is independently owned and operated, with each setting their own specific rates for moving. A majority of our franchise moving locations charge hourly for local moving and by weight for a move that is long distance. To find out more, contact the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK location nearest you for a free estimate and costs.

Packing options and supplies

Need packing supplies? We’ve got plenty of them! Need packing done and don’t want to do it yourself? We can help with that, too! Our movers can come out and do all of the packing for you prior to move day, or drop off the proper moving boxes and packing supplies to ensure your items stay organized and safe throughout your move.

An in-home walkthrough with the movers

Prior to your moving team getting to work, they’ll do a walkthrough of your home. This allows them to see the landscape of rooms so they can bring the proper moving materials to keep your belongings safe and secure during the moving process.

This also helps your team know where they’ll put extra protection on doors or walkways, and what furniture needs to be padded and stretch wrapped before loading into the truck.

A walkthrough of your new home location

A necessary step in the moving process is your move team getting to know your new location before they begin unloading your belongings. They’ll want to identify key rooms, like the master bedroom or spare bedroom, so they know what boxes and furniture will belong to each room when unloading.

Final walkthrough of the home and truck

Here your movers will want to go through the home with you to ensure everything is where it needs to go. If something isn’t in the correct spot, be sure to let them know before they leave! You’ll also want to do a final look inside the truck to ensure no items, furniture, or boxes are left on the truck.

Time to leave a review

After each move, our customers receive a customer satisfaction survey emailed to them. We greatly appreciate our customers filling these out and telling us how we did- good and bad! This helps us train and reward our teams accordingly. Reviews left on sites such as Google, Facebook, and Yelp are also greatly appreciated to help spread the word about the move you received with us.

  2. I am thinking about moving. I just moved in with some friends because I’m disabled. I was thinking about moving into Cresswood village south, but I haven’t fully checked everything out yet. I can’t do anything due to my disability. I will get back to you when I get all this figured out. How much do you need down
