TWO MEN AND A TRUCK services that don’t require moving trucks

Often times when people think of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, they y think of our white moving trucks driving around town with the iconic logo that has become a staple in so many communities.

While this type of home moving is what we’ve been known for over the last 35 years, we’re so much more than that. We offer a wide variety of specialty moving services to help any moving need and often times, our moving trucks aren’t even necessary.

You can hire the expertise of our professionally trained movers to help with whatever you need so you don’t have to worry about doing the heavy lifting yourself!

Load and Unloading

Known as our Carry Crew moving option, we offer customers assistance with loading and unloading for those who want to avoid doing any moving and lifting.

With this service, customers would rent their own truck or container, then call one of our teams to load it all up or unload it as needed. This saves you the trouble of doing it yourself and provides you with the peace of mind in knowing your items were handled by professionals. It’s a win-win!

Furniture Rearranging

We’ve all been there before: you’re looking around the house (or maybe even an office) and you want your furniture or other items rearranged. Then, you realize how much work this would be, and you put it off even longer.

With our furniture rearranging services, you can get anything moved around your home or business quickly and efficiently. Our movers will move as little or as much as you’d like so you don’t have to. This option is great for those undergoing home renovations, staging a home to sell, hosting a large gathering (safely, of course), or who just want something in a different spot.

Packing and Unpacking

This may not be a service involving any heavy lifting, but it’s equally as important and useful. Our teams can take care of the packing up of your belongings so you can focus on something else.

Given that we are professionals, we can efficiently pack as much items as you’d like us to. We can even provide the packing supplies and moving boxes!

Delivery Services

Ok, so technically this does involve a moving truck, but it’s still worth mentioning. If you have found yourself in a situation where you’ve ordered a large item – say a new appliance or piece of furniture – and you have no idea how you’ll get it home, we have you covered!

We can schedule the pickup and delivery of large items like this and get it to you safe and secure, even moving it into your home and placed exactly where you want it.

Five easy ways to make the moving process a positive experience for kids

TMAT414

-Written by Christina Baker

Moving tends to have an emotional and even daunting reputation – especially for children. They may not like the idea of too much change at once, and it’s probably overwhelming for them. However, there are several ways a child can learn to adapt to – and even enjoy – their moving experience.

Follow these tips to better your move for the whole family!

Explain the situation

Your children may be having a hard time understanding exactly why you’re moving. Have an open and honest conversation with them on why this is what’s best for your family. Encourage them to ask any questions they may have.

Prepare your kids for the move by having these conversations throughout the moving process so they will feel more comfortable.

Stay in touch & meet new people

A big part of the reason kids don’t want to move is because they might be scared to leave their friends. However, you can assure them they will still see their friends from your old neighborhood. Set up playdates for the future with the other parents so your child knows for certain that you’ll stay in touch.

It’s also important to let kids know they can make friends anywhere. Take them to your new neighborhood and introduce yourselves to the other families in that area. Taking this approach helps kids to see they can have friendships regardless of where they live.

Get them excited

You can get your kids excited about the move by taking them to the new house, if possible. Show them their new bedroom, and even ask them how they want to decorate it. Walk them through the house and explain to them the benefits of the new house, such as a pool, a new playroom, etc. Showing your children the endless possibilities of memories that can be created in your new space will allow them to look forward to living there.

Make it fun

Throughout the process of the move, try not to take it so seriously in front of your kids. Make games out of packing your belongings and allow them to have fun during this time. You could even keep your moving boxes. Kids love to be creative with objects that may otherwise be thrown away. Encourage them to even make a fort out of your moving boxes once you’re finished with them.

Mini Mover Mania Game & Coloring

If you want to keep your kids busy during the move, we have the perfect fix! Our interactive video game, Mini Mover Mania, gives players the opportunity to sit in the driver’s seat. This exciting racing game encourages players to get their customer’s belongings to their new destination in a safe way, while still trying to beat time and tackle rough terrains. For kids who would rather color, print off this TWO MEN AND A TRUCK coloring page! It’s sure to keep kids occupied as they color in Truckie embarking on a new travel.

To get TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s Mini Mover Mania video game as well as the coloring page, visit our “Moving With Kids” page on our website!

Moving can be a hard time on your children. However, by following these steps, your transition should become much smoother for your kids, and the rest of the family as well!

Create a moving checklist to keep you on track during the moving process

TMAT093

Home moving is a delicate process, one where a good amount of planning is required in order to eliminate unwanted stress or chaos as you transition from one home to another.

Some of the steps required include packing all of your belongings, figuring out which items you’ll be parting ways with, changing addresses for utilities and bills, hiring movers, and much more. We’ve helped people move for more than 35 years now and the best piece of advice we can give to customers for eliminating move stress is always the same: proper planning and organization – specifically by using a moving checklist.

A moving checklist is the best way to take your move in stride and chip away at the process piece by piece as you work toward moving day. From figuring out your plan of action to determining how you will go about packing, and everything else in between – a moving checklist is a good way to track your progress and give you an idea of how things are going.

One helpful moving checklist resource we’ve developed for those who want to take this virtual is Movetrac, which is a comprehensive list of moving resources and checklists where you can see real-time progress and get your moving questions answered all in one place!

We’ve also put together some of the most important tasks in a comprehensive moving checklist you can follow below. Enjoy!

Moving Checklist

One month before your move

  • Contact, schedule, and hire a mover as soon as you know you are planning to complete a home move to ensure you get the moving day you want and that movers are available.
  • Begin the cleaning of various areas of your house – closets, attics, garage, etc.
  • Begin changing your local address where necessary in areas like mailing, insurance, school records, and so on.
  • Purchase moving boxes and packing supplies to help get things rolling on your move – local TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchise locations offer a wide-variety of moving and packing supplies to fit all of your moving needs.

1-2 weeks before moving day

  • Start canceling anything that is tied to what will soon be your past home address – Internet, cable, newspapers, or any labor services you receive around your home.
  • Call all of your local utility companies and be sure they know the exact day to stop charging your old home address for services.
  • Start the packing process and go room by room so you don’t overwhelm yourself. Be sure to properly label and organize boxes so you know where everything is on moving day.

The week of moving day

  • Finish up any last-minute cleaning around your home and make sure everything looks nice for when you officially move out.
  • Continue working on packing all of your belongings and try to be finished before moving day arrives. For items you no longer need, donate them to a charitable cause or sell them if possible.
  • Make transportation plans for the day of the move so you know how you’re getting to the new place. If you have kids or pets, develop a plan that fits their needs, too, and figure out where they will be while the home move is taking place.
  • Mail in any change of address forms so your new place is ready to go with your information.

The day before moving day

  • Be in contact with your moving company and double-check that everything is set in stone for the ensuing moving day. If you’re moving with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, we will send a pre-move email solidifying all important details of your home move.
  • Ensure all breakable items have been removed from dresser drawers and packed away.
  • Take out some cash to hold you over during the moving process. This might come in handy if you need to get some pizza or snacks to feed everyone!
  • Perform one final cleaning of your home and appliances.

Moving day

  • Pack an essentials bag for items you can access immediately when arriving at your new home. This can include anything from chargers to toothbrushes, quick snacks, etc.
  • Make sure there is a clear moving path inside and outside of your home for movers to operate.
  • Be sure you are at the home when the professional movers arrive so that you are accessible should they have any questions and concerns.
  • Once the movers have loaded everything onto the moving truck, do one final walkthrough of the home and make sure nothing was left behind. Last but not least – go say goodbye to your neighbors!

Moving yourself vs. hiring professionals: The differences between the two and how each cost is different

TMAT211

Often times when we get asked about moving, the first question is always the same: How much does it cost?

Cost is usually the deciding factor in how people go about home moving, whether they’re planning to hire a professional moving company like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, or try and complete the move themselves. The common misconception thrown around in the world of home moving is that doing it yourself is a “cheaper” option than hiring professionals. On the surface, this might seem like the case, but once it is broken down, you’ll see moving on your own can add up price-wise.

Below, we’ve broken down some of the costs and factors you should consider when moving yourself vs. hiring professional movers.

Time

While not technically a cost, time is still important and valuable, and moving yourself takes a lot of your own personal time. You’ll still be responsible for packing up all of your belongings into boxes, loading them into a rental truck, and unloading  at your new house

If you’re doing this alone or with friends who aren’t professionally trained, it will more than likely take a few trips. Multiple trips can generally lead to multiple days of moving as opposed to just one, and this is more time spent on gas, renting the truck, and the miscellaneous costs of keeping you and your friends happy, hydrated, and fed.

Moving equipment

If you’re planning on moving yourself, what equipment will you use? It’s not a smart idea to try loading it into a pickup truck. For a full home move, you’re going to need a moving truck, which means renting a truck from a rental company. The costs of renting also includes the gas for the truck, which isn’t cheap.

You’ll also need to get your hands on equipment like moving straps, dollies, ropes, stretch wrap, and furniture pads, or packing supplies and moving boxes so your belongings stay safe.

The potential for damage and injury

Moving isn’t as easy as it looks, and there’s a reason 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.

Finding “help”

The old “find a friend with a truck” has been around forever when it comes to moving, but in all seriousness, you’re going to need help if you plan on handling a move yourself.

Recruiting friends can be tough, but you’ll also need to compensate them for their time – whether that’s just paying them straight up, or offering them food for their troubles. Either way, this is more cost on your end.

Why you should consider hiring movers

When you factor in everything above – the money you’ll spend on trucks and equipment, the potential for damages due to not being professionally trained, or the long-term health effects of trying to move yourself – you’ll realize you’re not saving as much as you might think.

Hiring a professional moving company like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK ensures all of the instances listed above are taken care of while you sit back and focus on more important things. The saying “you get what you pay for” has never been more true than with our company, and you’re getting a full-service, professional experience when you use our teams.

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 we know exactly how to plan for your move

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”!

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK partners with First Book to provide books for organizations that support educational equality for children in need

FirstBook-SG-Mar2021

It’s hard to list every way in which COVID-19 has affected our world, but one impact has certainly been on education and schooling for children.

With many schools going virtual or limiting in-person attendance, new challenges have been created for children in low-income communities who don’t have the same access to resources as their more affluent peers, and this can create barriers to learning.

This is why we are thrilled to announce our partnership with First Book.

First Book is building a path out of poverty for children in need through educational equity, ensuring equal access to quality education. They have numerous ways they work to help kids in need improve their education and we can’t wait to join forces with them while using our resources to support this great cause.

As part of our Career Move Month campaign in April – a program we designed to fill open positions in our franchises across the country – we will be donating copies of the children’s book When Grandma Gives You A Lemon Tree for each employee hired during this time.

“First Book believes education is the best path out of poverty for kids in need and providing meaningful books is one step to support these kids,” said Chief Talent Officer Sara Bennett. “When Grandma Gives You a Lemon Tree illustrates many important life lessons, including using creativity, patience and hard work to turn an unwanted gift into a blessing for many. This message aligns beautifully with our company’s core purpose, to move people forward.”

Twenty-five TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchises have signed up to donate 100 books each and deliver books to organizations in their communities. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s corporate office will also donate five books for each hire these franchise make during this time frame.

Together, we’re looking to donate at least 5,000 copies of When Grandma Gives You A Lemon Tree to organizations supporting the education of children in need. This effort aims to make an impact during the annual summer learning gap for children whose learning may have been impacted by COVID-19.

Stay tuned to our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram channels for more details on this and be sure to visit First Book’s website and follow them on their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram channels for more information.

Following proper health and safety guidelines to remain healthy during your next move

TMAT051

Although it’s been more than a year now since the COVID-19 pandemic hit our world and things are trending in the right direction toward normalcy, it’s still a crucial time to remember the proper safety measures and health guidelines to keep everyone safe.

Throughout the past year, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK moving teams have worked hard to ensure we are following the necessary guidelines and protocols to keep both our customers and our teams safe while adding in new sanitation requirements to minimize the spread of COVID-19. It’s important to us to do our part, and we want our customers to feel safe when they hire us, too.

Along with these sanitation improvements and health guidelines, we’ve also worked to add in new social distancing options such as improving our virtual in-home estimates so we can provide accurate moving quotes to customers without ever entering their home. For new services like our junk removal option, we have initiated contactless, curbside pickup options as well to eliminate exposure with our customers.

If you’re planning a move during the upcoming busy moving season, we encourage you to reach out to the franchise in your area and discuss any safety or health concerns you might have regarding COVID-19 prior to your move. Our moving consultants will be happy to talk you through every step of the process to ensure you are comfortable and ready come moving day.

In the meantime, here are a few common questions we’ve been asked regarding moving and COVID-19.

How is TWO MEN AND A TRUCK working to operate safely to stop the spread of COVID-19?

All franchises are following guidelines that have been put in place by the federal and local governments, as well as the CDC. All locations are taking extra measures and precautions to adhere to the highest safety standards, including the regular sanitation of trucks and equipment, having movers and drivers use hand sanitizer throughout the move, and maintaining social distancing best practices with our team members and customers.

If I have a move, is it still happening?

If you have any questions or concerns about your upcoming move, please contact the location you’ve booked your move with to confirm details of your move and to let the move team know if you have any special requests or concerns for move day.

Can I cancel my move due to COVID-19 concerns?

You will need to reach out directly to the location you booked your move with to talk through canceling or rescheduling your move.

Top 5 money-saving tips for your next home move

TMAT211

There’s never a bad scenario to save some money, right? We know the biggest concern people have with hiring professional movers can be the cost, so we’ve developed a few easy tips for you to keep in mind for your next move.

The most important factor when it comes to saving money during the moving process is time. Local moves are generally charged by the hour, so anything you can do to cut down on the time your movers are there will save you money in the long run.

Take a look at some of our helpful tips for preparing and saving time and money on your move!

Be honest with your moving company

It’s extremely important to be as accurate as possible when setting up a move with a professional moving company. You may think leaving out a detail or two about what you need moved is ok when getting your estimate and booking a move, but in the end, it could end up causing your move to take longer and cost more than your estimate outlined.

When the moving company is working with you to complete your moving estimate, be as accurate as possible with their team so they can accurately prepare for your move. Failing to mention certain items or belongings (like large objects), how many boxes you have, or how big your home actually is may add more time to the move as they make adjustments on the day of.

Disassemble all furniture and beds

While not necessary – movers at most of our locations can disassemble and reassemble furniture and beds for you – however this will save you time if you do it on your own. Generally, items like this need to be disassembled before being loaded onto the truck, so if you are able to do it before the moving team arrives, that is less time they’ll spend doing it at your home.

Pack efficiently

Packing is vital to any home move, and if your items are packed upon the arrival of your moving team, they can begin loading the truck immediately.

If you need help with packing, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK moving teams are professionally trained to pack your belongings and can pack as little or as much as you’d like! Or, if you want to pack on your own, we offer a full line of moving boxes and packing supplies that will help with any move.

For more packing tips, click here.

Organize all belongings

Another way to significantly cut down on time is by organizing all of your belongings in a central location. This can be somewhere like the living room or the garage, but having one central location will cut down on the time the movers have to spend navigating through your home. An easily accessible area will allow them to quickly work back and forth between the moving truck and your home.

Be prepared

Above all else, be prepared. Many of our frontline team members have mentioned that nothing beats good planning when it comes to moving day, and doing so will eliminate any last minute change ups, eliminate the need to add more time, and again – save you money! Try using one of our moving checklists or our movetrac app to help with preparation.

A TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Junk Truck

Using junk removal services to boost your spring cleaning efforts

DSC_4318

We’re now cruising through the month of March, and the weather is finally starting to show positive signs of turning warmer in many places of the country.

Regardless of where you live, there’s one thing that is coming up for everyone: spring cleaning. It’s time to get the house cleaned up both inside and out to get organized and ready for the summer months. There are many ways to go about spring cleaning, but one option that could make the task a little easier is TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s junk removal service.

This service is great if you have items you are looking to part ways with but aren’t sure how to get rid of them. From old furniture and appliances, to any other knick knacks and junk lying around, we’ll come in and haul it away for you. Are you completing home renovations and need to get rid of your old cabinets or scrap pieces? We can help with that, too! Whatever your junk removal needs are, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is here and ready to help so you can really tackle your spring cleaning.

Our junk removal service features TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s professionally trained moving teams and specialized junk removal trucks to save you from doing the heavy lifting and hard work. We can lift, haul away, and dispose of any unwanted items or junk you might have around your home or business, and we will remove as little or as much as you need.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s junk removal service is great for removing the following:

  • Exercise equipment
  • Electronics or appliances (please check with franchise to see if they are able)

For the rest of your spring cleaning tasks, we’ve developed a few other useful tips for you to follow below!

Develop a plan

Know what you want to get done around the house, and come up with a step-by-step plan to follow so you can stay on track and organized as you work through spring cleaning tasks. The checklist we’ve attached below will help with this step!

Take inventory of your cleaning supplies and materials

You can’t have spring cleaning without the proper spring cleaning materials and supplies, right? Before you get started, make sure you have enough of everything – from cleaning products to wipes, trash bags, rags, and more. Stock up in advance or pull out the supplies you probably already have in your home.

Purge unwanted items

A good idea during spring cleaning is to also work on decluttering your home and getting rid of those items that don’t serve a purpose anymore. Not using it? Toss it! You could also set these items aside for a garage sale at a later date.

Take your time

Spring cleaning probably won’t be finished in two hours – it’s going to take some time to work through your whole home, so pace yourself and take everything in stride. Chipping away with a few things at a time will make the whole process go a lot smoother.
