TWO MEN AND A TRUCK truck in front of home

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s long-distance moving options will get you there on time, on budget

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK truck in front of home

You’ve probably seen our trucks driving around your neighborhood helping customers move from one home to the next – we’ve been doing it for nearly 40 years!

But did you know we can offer more than just localized home moving? We specialize in long-distance relocation, too! Now, you can get the same high-quality customer service you’ve come to expect from our brand with local home moving as we help you relocate across the state or across the country.

We offer two specialized long-distance moving options: expedited long-distance moving and Value Flex® crated moving. Each features different options and pricing, but both come with the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK care and commitment when handling your belongings.

Expedited long-distance moving

Our expedited long-distance moving plan is as straightforward as it gets when it comes to long-distance moving: our professionally trained movers will load up your belongings into our moving truck and hit the road!

Most of our trucks offer GPS tracking so you can keep tabs on your belongings in transit. You’ll also never share truck space with another customer’s items – only your belongings occupy the truck. Our expedited plan is the fastest long-distance moving plan, as the moving team heads straight to your next destination with your belongings – no detours.

Value Flex Crated Moving

Value Flex crated long-distance moving is built for those who need to ship a few items but have flexibility in their schedules and want to move on a budget. It features some of the same benefits as our expedited plan like no shared space in the crates but utilizes a third-party carrier in transit. However, your items will be loaded and unloaded by TWO MEN AND A TRUCK moving teams.

To learn more about our Value Flex crated plan for long-distance relocation, check out the informational video below!

Get ready for the holiday season with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s internal moving service options

We’re rapidly cruising through the fall season and the snow is starting to fall (for some of us), which means the holiday season is right around the corner!

This is a busy time of year for many of us and can include many holiday gatherings, parties with friends, office parties, and much more. With this, there is usually some kind of planning around your home or office, decorating, finding extra furniture to accommodate guests, rearranging everything to look just right, and all of the other activities involved with planning or hosting a gathering.

As you get these plans together, you might find yourself thinking about how overwhelming all of this lifting and moving sounds. Well, good news – we can help!

We have a wide variety of specialty moving services and one of them is our in-home moving options. We can take the stress out of all the heavy lifting around the house, like moving that Christmas tree out of storage, getting those decoration boxes upstairs, moving furniture into different room, and more.

Our in-home moving services are great for the following:

  • Staging a home
  • Completing home renovations
  • Preparing for a big party or event
  • Moving or delivery of a recently purchased large item or appliance such as a piano, gun safe, exercise equipment, etc.
  • Moving yard equipment, furniture, or décor out of shed storage

Staging and rearranging

For those undergoing home renovations or staging a home to sell, our in-home moving service is a great option. We can help move furniture where it needs to go, get it up and down stairs, or out to the garage and out of the way.

This is a great option for businesses, too. Our professional moving teams can move office equipment, desks, and more. We’re conscious of time and understand that your business needs to keep moving, so we work with you to schedule hours that fit best for your business to ensure little to no interruptions.

Heavy items

Sometimes, you have a particularly large item like a piano, gun safe, large piece of furniture, or treadmill you just can’t move on your own. Don’t worry! Our moving teams are trained on how to properly move large specialty items, saving you the stress of having to do it yourself.

Like any TWO MEN AND A TRUCK service option, you’ll receive professionally trained movers who will show up trained, uniformed, and ready to get the job done right.

This service fits perfectly with those doing home renovations, decluttering, staging a home for sale, renovating their office building, or for those who simply just want to get rid of items they’ve accumulated over the years. We won’t judge on your reasons for moving on from certain belongings, but we’ll definitely help you get rid of it!

However, we can’t haul away everything, and it’s important to know which items we aren’t able to handle during your junk removal.

Items that cannot be taken with the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® junk removal service:

  • Appliances not emptied
  • Yard waste such as trees, brush, grass, sod, mulch, and other vegetative waste can be hauled with guidelines. Most disposal facilities recycle this material so it shouldn’t be mixed with other junk material. Dirt, sod, or mulch may have capacity limitations due to weight.
  • Tires are usually not accepted at disposal facilities and considered hazmat, however, you could reach out to a local tire recycle or business to see if they would take them.

Top 4 professional packing tips for your upcoming move

TMAT256

People ask us all the time about the best ways to get prepared for an upcoming move. Our answer? Proper packing!

Packing is vital to any move, and will make a difference in not only how fast and efficient moving day goes for you, but also how easy the post-move process is as you adjust to your new home or business. Being prepared for your move starts with packing and organizing so that come moving day, your moving team can come in and promptly begin loading up the moving truck.

 

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK has been doing this moving and packing thing for some time, and we’ve seen all of the way customers should – and should not – go about a move.

Check out our best packing tips below to help you get started for your next home, apartment, college, or even business move!

Get started early!

This is the best step to planning ahead with your move. If you can get packing out of the way early in the process, you’ll eliminate a massive amount of moving day stress.

Create a plan for packing, go room-by-room, and tackle a little bit of the process each day as you work toward move day. Use this moving day check list to get you on the right track!

Protect your belongings

There’s no point in packing if you’re items aren’t safe and protected. The best way to keep everything safe is by using proper packing supplies such as bubble wrap, packing paper, tape, and moving boxes.

A good tip to remember while packing up your belongings: the heavier the item is, the smaller the box should be.

Pack by room

As we mentioned above, it’s ideal to pack room-by-room. This will help not only keep similar items together, but will also help you in keeping track of where everything is and will help the movers load and unload boxes and furniture in a more organized fashion.

Label everything

You’re probably reading that and thinking “that’s obvious”, but it’s worth mentioning still! If you forget to label your boxes with what’s inside, you’re going to be scrambling and digging through boxes at your new home.

Clearly and accurately label each box so that both you and the moving team know what’s in the box and where it belongs on moving day. If you label the contents inside, this will also help you during the unpacking process, in knowing what you should unpack quickly in your new home, and what can wait a little longer.

Here are some moving tips from the moving pros at our franchises – the ones who live in the world of moving each and every day!

“Have all of your loose items boxed up and packed away, and also make sure to label the boxes. Make sure to have a game plan for unpacking the boxes, too.” – Shawn – Operations Manager – Lorain-Medina, Ohio

“With your packed boxes, take them all into the garage. It’s going to save a lot of time for us with the move and will also save you some money on your bill at the end of the move.” – Anthony – Team Lead – Lincoln, Nebraska

The differences of moving yourself vs. hiring professionals

TMAT451

One of the biggest decisions you have to make when it’s time to move is whether you’ll do it on your own or hire professional movers.

There is a general misconception around hiring professional movers, you might think it’s expensive and not worth the cost. So instead, many people go about a move on their own and with help from friends and family. It may sound easy, but if you break it down, it’s a little more complicated than that.

Here are a few things you should think about as you’re determining whether to hire professionals or complete the move on your own.

The actual equipment needed to move

If moving yourself, you’ll need to rent a moving truck if you’re moving a full home. On top of that, you’re also going to need to put money into the following items:

-Gas for the moving truck – and, depending on far the move is – multiple fill-ups

-Moving equipment to move all of your heavier items, such as moving straps, ropes, stretch wrap, moving dollies, and furniture pads.

-Packing boxes and supplies to keep your belongings safe

Being sure to have the proper supplies, along with packing away your belongings, avoids any unnecessary damages that may occur in the process.

The time involved with moving yourself

Time doesn’t necessarily equate to a “cost”, but it is valuable, and if you find yourself trying to take on a move by yourself, it may take more time than you’d prefer.

Prior to moving day, you’ll spend time finding boxes and packing supplies before you pack everything away. You’ll also need to organize what is going to the new house and what is getting thrown away. Lastly, depending on what type of vehicle you rent for moving – you might be making multiple trips from your old home to your new one.

Finding moving help

We’ve all heard the joke about asking your friend with a truck to help you move, but if you’re planning on moving a home yourself, you’ll need some help.

Recruiting friends to help move is difficult enough as is, but you’ll also need to pay them in either cash, or food and drinks to keep them happy during the moving process.

The potential for damage and injury

Moving isn’t as easy as it looks, and there’s a reason that moving companies are considered “professionals”. Trying to move heavy items on your own puts you at risk for injury if you aren’t properly trained on moving techniques.

This can also lead to added stress during the move, which creates a miserable experience for everyone.

Why should I hire professional movers?

Considering everything mentioned above, you start to realize doing the move on your own might not be as cheap (or easy!) as it might have seemed.

When you hire professional movers like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, the old saying “you get what you pay for” has never been more true. We offer a wide-range of professional moving services guaranteed to meet any moving need, and have spent 35 years developing a reputation as leaders in the industry.

With TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, you get:

-Free moving estimates, in-home over the phone, or online

-Packing options and packing supplies for sale

-An in-home walk through with our professional moving teams, followed by a walk-through of your new home so that we know exactly how to plan for your move

And, most importantly – you don’t have to do a thing! Our moving teams strive to handle each and every move with care and treat all of your belongings as if they were our own, saving you the stress and letting you focus on other important things.

 

If you have an upcoming move, consider hiring TWO MEN AND A TRUCK to get the job done and let us show you why we’ve earned the nickname “Movers Who Care”!
