The summer season is upon us! And that means warmer weather, sunshine, and moving! The busiest time for moving around the country starts during the month of May and peaks around July, according to the American Moving and Storage Association.

As the “Movers Who Care®”, we at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® are gearing up for our own busy season, and our Busiest Move Weekend which falls June 23, 24, and 25. That weekend alone, we’re expected to complete more than 5,500 moves! This averages out to 20 moves per franchise with an average distance traveled of around 25 miles for our move teams.Jeff-Wesley

TMAAT525-2258159751-ONot only did we just complete our five millionth move, we’re about to dive into our busiest moving days of the year!In addition to being entrenched in the busy season, the entire system will see its busiest move days taking place this weekend, Saturday, June 28, and Sunday June 29. The Home Office finance department has calculated that TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® will complete 4,941 moves over the two-day period, equating to 2.1 moves each minute, and recognizing almost $4.3 million in revenue. This is a major increase from last year, when the company was projected to collect around $3.5 million in revenue, a 23% increase. Needless to say, in a few short days, we will be moving a record amount of people forward onto their next life chapter.

This is our crazy-busiest time of the year, and we could not be more excited. We love serving our customers, and we will keep our promise to continuously exceed our customers’ expectations. In order to make your move as easy and seamless as possible, please consider the following to ensure your experience is top-notch:

Pre-pack and centralize

Having all items packed the day before the move and place all boxes in one central location; these steps are an immense time- and money-saver. Place all packed items in one room of your home, such as the living room or the garage for an overall quicker move as our movers will be able to grab your belongings and load the truck with ease.

Disassemble

Completing 2.1 moves each minute over the course of 48 hours will not be an easy task; however, if our customers can make the packing of their items a quicker process, the overall experience will be enhanced. Disassemble all furniture prior to movers arriving, storing all pieces in one room of the home. This will not only save on time for our movers to pack up your furniture but will ultimately keep you on budget.

Be patient

All of our locations are well-prepared and plan, but with so many moves taking place in such a short span of time, please try and be patient as our movers are working their hardest to ensure your move is flawless. Although we cannot promise perfection, we will promise to come as close as possible. We take pride in our 96 percent customer referral rating, and we work every day even in the busiest of days to live up to our high standards.

Have fun
