TMAT614

When you think of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, the first thing that you probably think of is what we’ve built our entire brand around – home moving.

We’ve been the leaders in home moving – both local and long-distance – for more than 35 years, but did you know we offer more than just traditional home moving? At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, we also offer an abundance of specialty moves that are sure to meet any of your moving needs.

Check out some of the specialty moving services we offer customers, for any type of moving situation.

Business Moving and Storage

We’re more than just local, home movers – we are more than ready to help move your business, too! If you have an office that needs moving or rearranging, we’re the movers to call. From professional offices to retail stores, medical offices, educational facilities, non-profit organizations, and much more – our professional moving teams will work with you to develop a moving plan that fits your needs.

We understand the importance of time when running a business, and we’ll do everything we can to not interrupt business hours so you can continue operating as usual.

In-Home Moving and Heavy Item Moving

Do you find yourself needing the convenience of professional moving power, but not the truck? That’s where our in-home moving option comes into play! Whether it’s home or business, our moving teams can come to you and help move heavy items safely up or down stairs, around tight corners, or to a different room in the house.

This is particularly useful for things like renovations, home staging, holiday decorating, staging a party, and much more.

If you have a particularly large item in your home that you need moved somewhere else, we can also help there! From pianos to gun safes, large furniture, and more – our teams are professionally-trained to handle moving these heavy objects so you don’t have to.

Pickup and Delivery

Just because an item isn’t in your home doesn’t mean we can’t help move it. If you have recently purchased a new piece of large furniture or some other large, bulk item like a home appliance – we can pick up the item for you and deliver it to your home!

From couches to tanning beds, treadmills or other exercise equipment, appliances, and more – we will load the item onto our truck, deliver it to you, and help move it to where it needs to go so you don’t have to deal with the stress of moving it in yourself.

Loading and Unloading

If you’ve rented a storage container at your home or business, or you’ve rented a moving truck but don’t feel like doing the heavy lifting, we’ve got you covered! Our professional moving teams can come to you and complete the loading or unloading, saving you the hassle.

We can move as much or as little as you’d like – you tell us.

Junk Removal

Are you downsizing, renovating a home, decluttering, or just getting rid of some unwanted belongings? Our junk removal services can help! Our professionally trained movers can provide junk removal for your home or business, disposing as little or as much as you need. This saves you the trouble of renting a dumpster!

Our junk removal teams will arrive in specialized junk removal trucks, providing the same outstanding customer service we’re known for with our home moving services so that you can get rid of those unwanted items.

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.

What to expect when moving with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK

-Written by Erik Sargent

If you find yourself moving soon, there’s an important decision lingering – move the belongings yourself or hire professional movers?

It’s an age-old question that people have juggled for years, and one that people often struggle to make. There are some common misconceptions about hiring professional movers that often push people to move the belongings themselves, but is it really worth it?

Moving is already stressful enough, but pile on the need to find friends and family to do the heavy lifting with you, rent your own truck, ensure your items are packed away safely so you don’t damage them yourself …  the to-do list can pile up just as quickly as the stress.

The old saying “you get what you pay for” applies to the idea of hiring professional movers, and when you hire TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, you can feel good knowing you’re getting top-notch movers in the industry.

Free moving estimates- in-home or over the phone

Our Customer Service Representatives are ready to assist you in figuring out just what it will take for one of our moving teams to help you and what the cost will look like for your move! The best part of these moving estimates? They’re free.

How much does TWO MEN AND A TRUCK cost?

Each TWO MEN AND A TRUCK moving location is independently owned and operated, with each setting their own specific rates for moving. A majority of our franchise moving locations charge hourly for local moving and by weight for a move that is long distance. To find out more, contact the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK location nearest you for a free estimate and costs.

Packing options and supplies

Need packing supplies? We’ve got plenty of them! Need packing done and don’t want to do it yourself? We can help with that, too! Our movers can come out and do all of the packing for you prior to move day, or drop off the proper moving boxes and packing supplies to ensure your items stay organized and safe throughout your move.

An in-home walkthrough with the movers

Prior to your moving team getting to work, they’ll do a walkthrough of your home. This allows them to see the landscape of rooms so they can bring the proper moving materials to keep your belongings safe and secure during the moving process.

This also helps your team know where they’ll put extra protection on doors or walkways, and what furniture needs to be padded and stretch wrapped before loading into the truck.

A walkthrough of your new home location

A necessary step in the moving process is your move team getting to know your new location before they begin unloading your belongings. They’ll want to identify key rooms, like the master bedroom or spare bedroom, so they know what boxes and furniture will belong to each room when unloading.

Final walkthrough of the home and truck

Here your movers will want to go through the home with you to ensure everything is where it needs to go. If something isn’t in the correct spot, be sure to let them know before they leave! You’ll also want to do a final look inside the truck to ensure no items, furniture, or boxes are left on the truck.

Time to leave a review

After each move, our customers receive a customer satisfaction survey emailed to them. We greatly appreciate our customers filling these out and telling us how we did- good and bad! This helps us train and reward our teams accordingly. Reviews left on sites such as Google, Facebook, and Yelp are also greatly appreciated to help spread the word about the move you received with us.

 

We can tell you all about our moving services and how we can help you, but nothing speaks louder than the words of our own satisfied customers. To hear it directly from the source, check out some of our customer testimonials below.

As you can see above, you don’t want to be the one hassling your friends by borrowing their truck for help. The smart choice? Calling TWO MEN AND A TRUCK!

It’s officially moving season and whatever your moving needs may be, the Movers Who Care can handle the move – regardless of the size. We can even help with packing, too! We are in the middle of summer and that means moving season, so each of our locations are fully-staffed and ready to help out.

Save your friend the pain. You’ll both be better off using TWO MEN AND A TRUCK. If you’re going to move, use these money-saving tips to help you get prepared and shave some money off your next move.

 

Start your packing early

Getting a jump start on your packing will pay off huge during your home relocation. This gives you time to get stuff in the right place, labeled, and will give you a clear idea of just how much is being transported on moving day.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK provides a wide-variety of packing services and packing supplies to make your move easier, which you can see here.

Label your boxes!

Once your items are securely packed in a box, finding them becomes a whole new ballgame. One of the most important steps someone can take during their home move is labeling everything. This organizational tool keeps you in the know with the location of all items you move, and helps the movers know what is happening, too.

Keep what you need, get rid of what you don’t!

The less boxes you have to move on moving day, the easier the entire move will go. If you prepare your move in advance, this will give you time to go through your belongings and ask one important question – do I need this? If you haven’t used something in a year, it’s safe to say you don’t need it.

Toss it! And save the hassle of moving it.

Create a moving checklist

The best way to approach a home move is with a detailed plan. This keeps you on a schedule, gives you a direction, and will help you keep track of everything that is happening in front of you during a time when it’s easy to forget things.

Keep your essential items together

Pack your essential items last when completing a home move, and even transport it in your personal vehicle so you have access to them if needed. This way, when you arrive at your new home, you can get the important stuff– like toiletries, chargers, etc. – first. It also prevents these essential items from getting mixed up with stuff that won’t be unpacked right away, and won’t leave you scrambling. When packing boxes, go room by room, keeping like-items together and making sure to label the tops and sides of the boxes so the movers know what room they belong in when getting to your new home. Stay accessible in case your movers aren’t sure where a certain item goes and you’re able to direct them!

Know what movers can and can’t move

Although we are more than happy to help with your move, there are some things we can’t move, and it’s important to keep this in mind as you are preparing. Anything from prescriptions to cleaning products, flammable items, or animals cannot be placed on our moving trucks.

Once boxes are packed, put them in one central area

Saving time means saving money! If your movers can quickly grab boxes and load them into the truck, that’ll make for an easier and more efficient move. If you’re able to, transfer your packed boxes to the garage or living room, and that’ll save your movers from going throughout the house to collect your items, thus saving time during the load process.

The perks of hiring professional movers

TMAT447

-Written by Erik Sargent

Moving can be one of life’s most stressful events, filled with chaos and emotion as you relocate all of your belongings from one place to the next. There are a variety of reasons as to why people move, but one thing remains the same with each – it is a process that requires planning, heavy lifting, and patience.

Many people think that if they use a professional moving service, they are going to end up paying far too much, and they try to do everything on their own. Doing a move on your own is not only stressful, but can cause damage to your belongings, damage to you, and can take an extended amount of time.

With a moving company like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, you avoid all of these hassles – and we put to rest the myth that hiring professional movers will break the bank! For over 30 years at locations all across the country, we have been helping people move forward in their life by providing top-notch moving services. Each one of our moving teams is trained to handle moves with the highest level of care, and they are professionally trained and uniformed when they arrive at your door.

We’ve compiled a list of some of the top reasons you should choose a professional moving company like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, and we hope you think of us next time you decide to relocate!

The benefits of professional movers

Hiring professional movers means you are putting your items in the hands of people who are properly trained on how to move objects of all shapes and sizes. From furniture and appliances to safes and pianos, our movers know how to handle it all.

Trying to move large objects like furniture or safes can not only be dangerous to do on your own, but can cause damage to everything if they are not handled correctly. Leave the heavy lifting to us!

You can rest assured that when our moving teams handle your items, each object will be padded and stretched wrapped to provide maximum protection from one location to the next.

Reasonable pricing

The perception of professional moving services is that it’s going to cost a fortune, but that is simply not the case, as there are a variety of factors that determine the price of a move. On average, a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK move typically costs $895. This is a price that must be considered when you take into consideration that you don’t have to do any of the work.

The time you save vs. doing it yourself

When you try to handle a home move yourself, there’s no telling how long it could take you. From trips back and forth to asking people to help you, you are taking on a major task if you do it alone.

With TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, a home move typically takes around 5.34 hours – that is getting everything from one place padded and stretch wrapped, loaded onto our 26 ft. moving trucks, and unloaded at your new home – just like that!

Don’t take our word on why using professional movers is a great option – just listen to what our customers have to say!

“I’ve moved five times in the past, all by myself with the help of some friends and family. I was dreading the process of moving again, and decided to hire professional movers. This was the best decision made about this move! It was fantastic having a team of professionals helping move our family’s things carefully and securely. The team was efficient, thoughtful, and knocked it out of the park. I definitely recommend TWO MEN AND A TRUCK to others now.” – Erik, Savannah, GA

“The entire move was handled as expected without surprises. While I was initially surprised to see an estimate for two trucks, I soon saw that the quote was spot-on. Looking back, there’s simply no way that I could have saved any money by attempting to move two truckloads and two cars from Atlanta to New Orleans by myself. The moving crew was professional, courteous, meticulously careful, and exceptionally hard-working. We have a number of irreplaceable antiques and they were handled separately with incredible attention to their care. It gave us peace of mind to know that our interstate move was expedited without the need for sharing a truck or warehousing our belongings, and to have the same crew load and unload added a welcome familiarity.” Chris, Gwinnett North, GA

“My movers – Daniel and Daniel – did a phenomenal job moving me into a new apartment. They took time to inventory all my items, moved furniture around in the new place until it was just where I liked it, and were kind and courteous the entire time. My move came in under the estimate too! Overall, the experience was excellent and I’ll never be moving myself again! Thank you!” – Kay, Lansing, MI
