TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s specialty services offer professional help outside of normal home moving

If you’ve ever seen one of our moving trucks driving around your city, what comes to mind first is a family moving from one home to the next.

Home moving has been the core of our company since its inception. But did you know we can use our professional moving teams for more than just home moving? That’s right! TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® offers a variety of specialty moving options to fit any moving need so customers can use us for all things moving.

From storage, junk removal, furniture or large item pickup and delivery, moving items around inside your home or business, or packing and unpacking services– we can help with just about anything.

We know heavy lifting can be tough and we’re here to make sure you don’t have to handle it on your own!

Junk removal

Do you have old or unwanted belongings around the house (or office!) you no longer need but can’t figure out how to get rid of them? Try our junk removal option!

Our professional moving teams will arrive with specialized junk removal trucks and assist with the removal and disposal of those old items taking up space in the basement, garage, or attic. We’ll get it out of your space and disposed of properly.!

Pickup and delivery

Buying a new couch or large appliance can be exciting … until you realize you need to get the item home

Thankfully, we’re here to help. We can assist with the delivery of these large items and save you the trouble! We’ll pickup the item from wherever you purchased it, transport it to your home in our moving truck, and bring it inside for you. Talk about a win-win!

Business moving and storage

Not only can we move customers from one home to the next – we can move entire businesses, too! If you’re looking to relocate your office or if you need to move items already within your office, we’re ready to help.

We understand the importance of having limited interruptions to your operation, and that’s why we work diligently with you to schedule around busy times so we can create as little distractions as possible.

In-home moving

The theme with all of these specialty service options is eliminating the inconvenience of heavy lifting for you, and our in-home moving plans are no different. Sometimes, you just want your home rearranged or you need belongings moved in and out of storage, but this requires some hard work and heavy lifting – which isn’t always easy.

You can call a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK moving team to handle it for you! This can cover anything from moving a piece of furniture up and down stairs, or just shifting an entire room around to give your home a fresh look. We can also handle moving items like gun safes, pianos, appliances, and more.

Load and unloading

Sometimes, you just need the muscle and moving help, not the moving truck. Don’t worry, we can help there as well.

If you have rented a moving truck but don’t want to load up or unload your items, you can call our professional moving teams to come out and do all the heavy lifting for you. We’ll move as little or as much as you need!

Please note: With each TWO MEN AND A TRUCK location being independently owned and operated, specialty moving services can sometimes be limited to select franchises. Please use our franchise locator link to find the location closest to you and see if they offer these types of services.

1. These 5 items cannot be transported with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s junk removal service

“Your favorite home and business moving brand has expanded its service options to help you with junk removal, too. Utilizing our professionally trained movers and specialized junk removal equipment, we’ll now help you properly dispose of old items and junk you no longer need around your home or business.”

2. What your TWO MEN AND A TRUCK movers can’t transport during your next move

“Organization and planning can go a long way in eliminating some of this stress for you. Another area that’s important to keep in mind is learning what moving companies can’t move for you. This is vital information to know as you prepare ahead of time what belongings you might need to transport in your own vehicle.”

3. Five money-saving tips to save you some cash during your next move

“Cost is determined by a variety of factors when hiring movers: how much you’re moving, drive time, total hours or distance of the move, how many movers or trucks are needed, and more. However, there are a few simple things you can do to help save yourself money on your next move!”

4. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK moving services that don’t require a moving truck

“Our moving teams provide many services which don’t require a moving truck, allowing us to meet the needs of our customers with whatever moving situation they might have. Like any of our services, we will show up with professionally trained moving teams who are ready to handle any type of lifting, ensuring your belongings stay safe and protected from beginning to end.”

This is a reflection of the great people working for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, and we take great pride in embracing this moment as we look forward to providing the best experience for our customers during this time.”

7. Avoid these 5 items when preparing to store items in a storage unit

“Storage facilities all have their own set of regulations and guidelines specific to their business, but there are also many things which cannot be put into storage, and it’s important to know what these are. We’ll go over a few of them below!”

8. Four big differences between hiring professional movers and doing it yourself

“Cost is usually the deciding factor when it comes to hiring professionals or spending time and energy to move yourself. Throughout the years, we’ve noticed there is a common misconception about the cost of moving and how much you’ll “save” if you do it yourself.”

9. Cut down on last minute moving tasks by utilizing a moving checklist

“Moving checklists are essential to organization with a home move, and organization goes a long way in ensuring you stay on track with your tasks, while helping to ease some of the pressure that comes with moving day. With a moving checklist, you’ll have the ability to track your progress in real time and get an idea of where you are in the moving process to get a better idea of what still needs to be done before the big day.”

10. Use these 5 professional packing tips for your upcoming move

“Packing is essential to a successful home move, and it goes a long way in taking the stress out of the entire process. Between proper packing and organization, you can significantly reduce the hassle of moving, save yourself time, and possibly even save yourself some money. Sounds like a win!”

Research and ask important questions beforehand to avoid falling victim to moving scam operations

TMAT211

We’re a brand who is committed to providing the best customer experience possible when it comes to the stressful task of moving.

Moving is known for being one of life’s most stressful events – deservedly so – and we make it our mission to alleviate this stress by providing you with the best customer service, professionally trained movers, and a work ethic that is unmatched in the moving industry. Unfortunately, the moving industry’s reputation is often damaged by illegitimate operations who don’t have the customer’s best interest in mind and are looking to scam them out of money.

These “scam” operations will make a promise of low-priced moving services, which draws in potential customers who are looking to find the best deal. However, this usually comes with a sacrifice: movers who aren’t professionally trained, who don’t care about your belongings, and teams who might not even show up at all despite taking your money.

There are a number of ways to do your research into reputable companies, and one of these ways is through reading customer reviews online.

“The number of Google reviews a brand has makes a significant impact on the customer’s decision-making process, but what most customers don’t know is that some moving companies pay or falsify their online reviews, which is against Google policy,” said Jon Nobis, the CEO of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK. “This lack of authenticity in online reviews makes the process of hiring a trustworthy, reliable mover even more difficult for consumers.”

These online reviews are a good gauge for a company’s reputation. Customers don’t hold back when it comes to online reviews, so you’ll get a good feel for what you’ll get with a company. Looking at both the good and bad are crucial, and more importantly, how the company responds to the negative ones.

Online research is also another good route to take when looking into a company. It will help you find out information on issues like how they treat their employees, how professional they are, if they offer the necessary equipment for moving, and more. This is all important information to know when you are hiring a moving company.

“As a brand, we are laser-focused on transparency and building trust, ensuring that our customer experience is world class,” said Nobis. “Because moving scams are on the rise, we’ve taken these measures up a notch and are committed to further developing our customer service initiatives with the launch of new technology-focused solutions that make booking a move easier for our customers.”

Lastly, another area where you can decipher scams from legitimate operations is with online quote forms. Shady advertisements and data aggregators can often give the impression of being real online, but they’re just looking to sell your customer info to other companies. This is why it’s important to get your moving quotes directly from the moving company itself.

“It’s important to make sure that you are requesting an online moving quote directly from a moving company that you are intending to work with,” Nobis said. “It can become very frustrating for a customer who believes they are submitting a moving request for a specific company and then three or four moving companies follow up with phone calls and emails. Customers need to be careful during their research phase to ensure they’re only providing their personal information to companies they’re interested in moving with.”

What’s it like to be a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® mover?

DSC_0323

-Written by Erik Sargent

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK teams are fully submerged into the busy moving season all around the country and internationally, as our professional moving teams are working harder than ever to move people to their next steps in life.

Being a home mover is an incredibly taxing profession, and at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, we strive to hire the best team members to enter our customers’ homes and move their most prized possessions. It’s a rewarding experience for our moving teams as they establish relationships with customers and truly lend them a helping hand with one of life’s most stressful events.

We spoke with team members from our Pasadena, Cali., location to find out just what goes into a day in the life as a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK mover or driver.

Here’s what they had to say!

DSC_0378How does a typical day start as a mover/driver?

“Usually, we just prep our trucks and make sure we have the right equipment for the upcoming move. We call the customer ahead of time and ask them if there is anything they need like boxes, or if they have changed their mind on something last second so we can adjust and bring the proper equipment.”
Jose Morales

How long does it take to get ready?

“It varies, depending on whether the truck needs something special like boxes, or if the truck needs to be swept out. It all varies, but it’s usually between 15 and 20 minutes, 30 minutes at the most to get ready to go.” – Abraham Baustista

How long does a typical day for a mover/driver last?

“It all varies on a lot of different things. Usually for us, the average is anywhere from six to 12 hours on a normal day. What changes it up is anything from someone having only a little bit of items to longer walks, apartment moves and condo moves, and parking difficulties, which all affect the time.” – Jose Morales

Favorite parts of your job?

“I would have to say the people that work here. I do have a lot of experience working at different places, and I can say that from day one when I started here, I was a little nervous because I didn’t know anyone. But the thing about this company is they do a very good job of just getting you used to the environment, the people, and literally by my fourth or fifth day, I knew everyone. That’s just my favorite thing – the comradery in the DSC_0388office is what keeps us going.” – Jabrion Burnside

Challenges on the job?

“Definitely the heat. Lifting is not easy, and you’re already producing a lot of heat as is. When you add in the sun on you and how hot the truck can get, it sometimes just wears on you and can slow you down. Also, since we are in California and specifically the Los Angeles area, traffic can get really, really bad.” – Abraham Bautista

What do you do to make customers feel comfortable during a home move?

“I would say the biggest thing is getting to know the customer. At the end of the day, you have a service you are performing for them, but nothing is better than actually knowing you on a more personal level, because then they trust you more and you trust them more, and it adds to the overall experience of the move.” – Jabrion Burnside

 

There you have it! Moving is one of the tougher jobs you’ll find, but when you have hardworking professionals like these three young men – and the team members at all 350  TWO MEN AND A TRUCK locations – it can make your moving process a little bit easier.

Nine questions to ask your landlord before moving in

TMAT113.jpg

This is a guest post from Avail.com

There’s a lot on your mind when you’re preparing for a move, from what day you can move in to when you’ll receive your keys, where the moving truck can park, and more.

To ensure you’re as prepared as possible, and have as many moving day details to make it a stress-free and efficient day, it’s important to ask your landlord these nine questions ahead of time.

#1 What day can I move in?

It’s best to check with your landlord about what day you’re able to move in. That way, you are both on the same page and you can schedule professional movers ahead of time. It’s recommended to reach out and book your movers as soon as possible, even as early as one month out from the date you’d like to move.

#2 What will you do to prepare the unit before I move in?

Most landlords clean and re-paint in between tenants. We recommend finding out what your landlord plans on doing ahead of time, so you know what condition the place will be in when you move in.

#3 Were the locks changed?

In some locations, it’s a legal requirement for landlords to change the locks in between tenants. Even if it’s not a legal requirement, you can still request that your landlord changes the locks if you prefer.

#4 When will I get my keys?

Of course, you’ll need to know when you can pick up your keys to access your unit for move-in day! We recommend coordinating with your landlord to find out where and when you can pick up your keys. You may want to ask if there are other people who have a copy of the key, or access to your unit.

#5 What doors/elevators should I use? And where can I park my moving truck?

Your landlord will know the best place for your moving truck to be, whether it’s in an alley, on the street, or in a truck dock (at a larger building). You can also find out if there are service elevators for you to use. Be sure to make arrangements for parking and service elevators prior to your movers’ arrival.

#6 What do I do in the case of a lockout?

Before moving in, it’s best to know the lockout procedure. Is there an extra key on site in a lockbox? Is there a 24/7 emergency lockout company you should call? Your landlord will likely have a way for you to remedy the situation, and having this information may come in handy down the road.

#7 Is there a move-in checklist for me to complete?

It’s best practice to fill out a move-in checklist. You’ll mark any existing damage on move-in day. That way, when you move out, you can show the landlord that the damage was already there. This is helpful if you want to receive your full security deposit at the end of the lease.

You can also check to ensure you have all the proper moving essentials, here.

#8 How do I pay first month’s rent?

Typically, landlords expect first month’s rent before you move in. It’s usually a requirement before he or she will hand over a key to you. Make sure you know how to pay rent and when it’s due so you get your keys on time.

#9 What utilities am I responsible for?

You’ll want to set up your utilities before you move in. Gas, electricity, and internet are utilities you’ll want immediately. If you’re responsible for setting these up, your landlord should let you know which companies to reach out to. If not, we recommend asking your landlord for more information.

Next steps

You’ve asked your landlord these questions, and found out your move-in date, so the next step is setting up professional movers. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is here to help.

If you’d like to pay rent online, tell your landlord about Rentalutions. You can set up automatic payments, so you don’t have to remember each month. Learn more about Rentalutions below.

Summer months provide the best time frame for home moving

Summer

-Written by Anna Stephens

While you and your family have been enjoying the summer season, our movers at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® have been helping thousands of people move forward the last few months. There’s no doubt that summer is the busiest time of year to move, but why is that exactly? We’ve assembled a list of 10 summer moving benefits to keep in mind when it comes time to relocate your home.

  1. School year gap. Moving during the summer lets your kids get settled in their new home without having school on their minds. If you move to a new city, the summer affords the opportunity for the kids (and the adults) to make new friends before the school season begins.
  2. Sports season gap. You won’t miss out on any football, March Madness, NBA playoffs, or postseason baseball games. Plus, your kids won’t have to pause in the middle of their sports seasons, either.
  3. No snow or ice. If you live in colder climates, you have the comfort of knowing you won’t slip on ice while moving things out of the home.
  4. Garage sale season. As you’re packing, throw the items you no longer need into a garage sale pile. It’s an exciting way to start fresh and make a little money. For most areas in the country, the spring and summer months are perfect for having garage sales.
  5. Social events. Barbecues and outdoor events held in the summer months are easy ways to meet your new neighbors.
  6. Real estate market timing. Spring and summer months are the best months to list your home based on average rate of sale. Specifically, homes listed during early May and June are sold faster on average than any other months.
  7. Summer weather. You’ll need to have doors open frequently as you move belongings from your house to the truck, and light summer breezes are completely bearable compared to blustery, winter winds. Depending on where you live, temperatures are somewhat easy to predict and stable. This makes your planning process much easier.
  8. Work flexibility. Some companies offer more schedule flexibility during the summer, so taking a few days off of work to pack is less of an inconvenience.
  9. Longer days. More daylight during the summer months means you can get everything checked off your to-do list while it’s still bright outside.
  10.  Renovation time. If you are looking to renovate your new home, that’s much easier to do in the summer. Especially when those renovations are exterior or involve landscaping.

When the time comes for your family to move, let us do the heavy lifting! At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, we strive to provide our customers with the most excellent customer service and take the stress out of moving, regardless of the season. For your local or long-distance moving needs, reach out to your local franchise for a free estimate today.

Tis’ the Season: How to Complete a Hassle-Free Holiday Move

The holidays are a time of gifts, giving thanks and more white elephant invitations than you know what to do with. But what if you also have a big move scheduled during the joyful chaos of the holiday season? You may be worried sick about how to fit packing, recitals, decorating and hiring movers all into a span of a couple of months – we hear you.

While moving during the holidays can present an additional layer of challenges, there are ways to make it easier than you’d expect. Learn what to do and more importantly, what not to do when preparing for a big move during the holiday season.

1. Get in Touch with Your Inner Giver

photo-1446501356021-84cf6b450d07

When it comes to preparing to pack for a move during the holidays, less is more. This means that it’s best to eliminate as much unnecessary clutter and extra baggage before you start. There are several ways to purge your home of items in order to shave significant time off packing, ultimately saving yourself money with a shorter move.

Option #1: Host a Garage Sale

A garage sale is one of the most efficient ways to get rid of old items. It’s also a way to earn some additional cash to help with your holiday moving budget! Crank up the music and set out some snacks, your garage sale will be buzzing with eager customers looking for budget-friendly holiday gifts in no time.

Option #2: Donate to Charity

The holidays are the perfect time to donate lightly used toys, clothing and shoes to charitable organizations such as the Salvation Army, Toys for Tots, churches and homeless shelters. You can also donate your unused food to organizations where non-perishable food items donated by those in the process of moving are used to fight hunger. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK has a program called Movers for Meals Think of it as a win-win, you’ll be able to save precious cargo space on your moving truck while giving back to the community.

Option #3: Give it Away

This third item may seem overly simplistic but it still works. If you have tons of stuff that isn’t worth the cost of transporting to your new home, give it away! Your friends, neighbors and relatives will love you, as will your moving company.

2. Do Minimal Decorations and Pre-Scheduled Events

Garage sale for moving season

 

The biggest concern when moving during the holidays is having to juggle the holiday traditions with moving must-do’s. The holidays are filled with decorating sessions, recitals, Christmas parties and lots of shopping. While you will need to sacrifice some holiday festivities, there’s no need to completely give up on your favorite holiday traditions. Instead of going all out, settle for a smaller, plastic Christmas tree with minimal decorations so you can easily transfer it to your next home. While decking out the entire yard with Christmas lights isn’t the best use of your time, you can still achieve the same feel by decorating just the front porch or balcony.

When attending holiday events, compromise on which ones are essential to attend such as Christmas mass or your child’s recital and skip the holiday happy hours with co-workers. You’ll save money and have more time to focus on the task of moving.

3. Get Going on Hiring Movers Early

Moving during the holidays

Hiring a moving company should be approached with lots of research, competitive analysis and communication with the company. Given most moving companies may have limited hours during the holiday season, it’s best to book your company at least a month in advance. Once you’ve determined which moving company is flexible and willing to adhere to your moving timeline, check out the four factors below to consider when hiring the right moving company by Cablemover.

Tip #1: Research the Reviews

Tip #2: Don’t Skimp on Moving Insurance

Tip #3: Negotiate with Multiple Moving Companies

Tip #4: Licensing: Check the Credentials

Many people hiring movers have lost thousands of dollars by placing their trust in unprofessional and scammy moving companies. Since moving during the holidays is hectic enough, make sure to do your due diligence when completing this important task.

4. Don’t Rush into Unpacking

Quality time with family after a holiday move

Congratulations, you made it! Feel free to bask in the glow of your own accomplishment because you successfully completed a holiday move. Once moving day is behind you, it’s normal to want to dive right into unpacking and setting into your home. However, we recommend an alternative. If possible, hold off on unpacking the entire house until after the holidays. After the busy and action-packed season of moving during the holidays, allow yourself to relax and unwind.

As you can see, moving during the holidays doesn’t have to be an arduous endeavor. From when to start the process to balancing holiday fun with moving tasks, a hassle-free holiday move is all about your approach. The best part is, you’ll be all moved in and ready to start the new year in your new home!

If you’re ready to start the holiday moving process, make sure it’s seamless by checking out Cablemover’s customizable moving guide – from movers to timelines, our guide allows you to customize your move exactly how you want it.
