If you’re finally looking to complete a home move in 2023, you probably have a ton of questions and concerns rushing through your mind right now as you try to prepare. Moving can be stressful, but when you hire a professional moving company like us, it doesn’t have to be.

How much does a move cost?
Without a doubt, this is the most frequently asked question we hear from potential customers. The answer? It depends!
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchise are all independently owned and operated, and prices range from location to location. Local moves are charged by the hour, and long-distance moves are charged by weight.
Check out our guide on the typical costs for home moves here. (I’ll link the blog once it’s live).
What can affect the cost of a move?
With local moves being charged by the hour, there are a wide-range of things that can come into play to affect the cost of your move.
Walking time from the moving truck to the load/unloading zone, the amount of time it takes movers to load and unload belongings, the drive time between moving locations, flights of stairs, and much more all have a say in the final bill.
What items should I have with me on moving day?
Most of your items will be packed up and ready to be moved on moving day, so you won’t have access to a large number of personal belongings. Make sure to keep chargers, a change of clothes, toiletries, and some snacks close by if you need them. Also make sure to have any important medications or paperwork necessary to the move available as well.
How do I get a moving quote?
Very easy – just visit our website! Getting a moving quote with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is free, and we strongly recommend it so our moving consultants can get you the most accurate price for your upcoming move. We’d recommend reaching out for a moving quote roughly one month before your intended moving day.
How do I complete an address change for my new home?
The best way to do this is by visiting the US Post office online. You will be able to fill out prompts with your change of address information to get set up.
What’s the best way to go about packing up my home?
Packing is a critical part of the moving process and making sure you do a good job on it can save you a lot of stress down the road. Planning ahead, staying organized, and slowly chipping away at it leading up to moving day are some of the best recommendations we have.

Should I tip movers when the job is done?
