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

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.

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!

Take some stress out of the holiday season with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s delivery service plans

The calendar hit December last week, and across the world people are fully immersed in another holiday season.

This is a time for giving, specifically with gifts for friends and loved ones – or even giving a gift to yourself! There are plenty of good deals to go around right now, especially for large appliances, televisions, exercise equipment, and more. However, we’ve all been in the situation where we buy something like this and the excitement quickly vanishes as you wonder, “how will I get this home?” Well, we have the answer: TWO MEN AND A TRUCK!

We are known for our home moving, but we can also assist you with delivery and transport of heavy items, too. Our professionally trained moving teams and their moving trucks can deliver large items from a store where they were purchased directly to your home, and then move it inside for you.

It will save you a great deal of trouble (and back pain), as well as peace of mind knowing you’ll get whatever you ordered to your home safe and secure.

All of our movers and drivers undergo extensive training before ever going out on a move, and they’re also background checked and drug screened prior to being hired. We’ll work with you each step of the way to make sure you’re happy with the process of getting your item delivered and moved in. Also – with the COVID-19 pandemic, our movers take extra precautions when it comes to safety, which you can learn about here.

Don’t just take our word for it – hear it from our very own customers!

“I needed an appliance picked up from Lowe’s since they would not deliver the item. The team met me at the store at the time promised, delivered, and set up the fridge. It was more work than we expected, involving removing the doors. But the men were positive, and more than willing to help complete the job. It took longer than expected (so cost more), but it saved me lots of aggravation doing it myself or pulling my husband away from his job to work on it. It was well worth it!” – Maria

“I recently moved from Franklin to Pennsylvania. I purchased my furniture here in Brentwood. Because I purchased the furniture that was on the sale/floor models, I had to care of delivery on my own. My real estate agent recommended TWO MEN AND A TRUCK. I’m very glad he did. I was able to get everything delivered the very next day. The men who moved everything were courteous and professional and fast! I would highly recommend them.” – Jim

Five overlooked moving essentials to keep in mind ahead of your move

Customers talking with mover

When it comes to home moving, it’s a never-ending whirlwind of figuring things out, planning, packing, making calls, creating lists, buying this and buying that – so on and so forth.

We’ve seen it a million times over and know how stressful moving can be. Each of the things mentioned above play a critical role in the puzzle of completing a home move, but what about the things you aren’t thinking of? While buying a new home, hiring professional movers, and packing usually grab the headlines in the moving process, there are other important things you can do to take some stress out of moving day – stocking up on overlooked moving essentials is one way.

Many of these are centered around organization. We cannot stress to our customers enough the importance of being organized and planning ahead when it comes to home moving, and that’s where a number of these overlooked moving essentials will come into play.

Follow along!

Moving Checklist

Perhaps nothing will better assist you in the days and weeks leading up to your home move than creating a moving checklist. This gives you a concrete, visual map of how your move is going and where you need to focus your attention working up to the moment movers arrive at your door. It’s a detailed plan of how you’re going to attack the move starting about a month out from moving day.

If you’re asking yourself how to make a moving checklist, don’t worry – we did it for you.

Chargers (and batteries)

The world runs on technology, right? It’s unfortunately true, but it is reality, and you want to be prepared while you’re leaving your old home and entering your new one. Having extra chargers and batteries on hand will help you stay connected so you’re able to stay on top of any issue that might arise during your move – or, you can just scroll social media during some down time. Either one!

Cleaning Supplies

If you’ve ever experienced the process of moving into a new home, then this one will really resonate with you: have cleaning supplies ready!

From antibacterial wipes to toilet cleaner, cleaning spray, laundry soap, and more – you’ll want it all handy because the first thing you’re going to want to do at the new home is clean.

Plastic Bags

Simple, right? Plastic bags are a cheap, easy, and versatile tool to have on moving day and they make carrying around loose items which didn’t get packed away easy. Keep a stash handy and be ready if needed.

Tool Kit

There’s a strong chance that your new home won’t be perfectly ready with zero issues you need to handle, including ones that might involve a set of tools. Make sure you have tool kit handy so that you can tend to any minor fixes that need to be done when you arrive at the new home because trust us – there will be some!

Budgeting for a long-distance move with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK

Life can change quickly and without notice and sometimes this can include needing to relocate yourself to a new state or region.

This can be daunting and stressful as you pack up your belongings and head to a new area, but with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, it doesn’t have to be! Generally, people think of us as your local, residential moving professionals helping you move from one home to the next across town. What many don’t know is we specialize in long-distance relocation services, too.

Just like our local moving options, you’ll have a dedicated and professionally trained moving team handling your belongings for the loading and unloading portions of the move, giving you peace of mind that your items are safe and protected. Even better – we offer exact dates of delivery and GPS tracking of your items, as well as the guarantee of never having to share your shipping space with the belongings of other customers.

Check out our long-distance moving options below to see what works best for you!

Expedited

This is the original long-distance moving plan for our brand, and it’s as simple as it gets: a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK moving team loads up your belongings into a moving truck and hits the road!

Our expedited plan offers you an exact delivery date, which will help you plan ahead as you commute to your new home. Like we mentioned above, you’ll have GPS-tracking abilities to check the progress of your move, and you’ll never share truck space with another customer.

Crated

This TWO MEN AND A TRUCK long-distance option is ideal for those who just need to ship a few belongings long distance. Your items are loaded into a secured cardboard crate that holds approximately 1,000 lbs. The crate is then loaded onto a third-party carrier and delivered to the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK location closest to your new destination.

As always, your belongings are the only items in the containers, and you are given a 48-hour window of delivery for your belongings. Please note: This option is only available at select TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchise locations.

Corporate Relocation

Through this employee relocation service, you’ll get all the benefits of a traditional TWO MEN AND A TRUCK move mentioned above as we get you to your next stop.

Movers carrying boxes off truck

Top 4 tips for an easy and efficient downsize

As summer concludes, we quickly begin planning for what needs to be done during the fall season. During this time, many are looking to downsize their homes before the winter season hits. Downsizing means freeing up the clutter of your unused items, moving to a new home altogether, or transitioning into a smaller space.

If you know you have a downsize moving on the horizon, we’re here to help you through any concerns and offer advice to make it a success. Parting ways with the home you’ve grown close to and built memories in is not an easy task, and we’re here to relieve some worries.

Follow along with these tips to make the process a little easier!

Get ahead

Start the process early. You want to have a good idea of the downsizing plan. Get started a few months ahead of the move day so you’re prepared when the movers arrive. Each day, gather more and more of your belongings to pack in boxes. Taking it day by day will allow for less chaos on move in day.

Get rid of clutter

During the packing process, it’s a good idea to sort through the items you do and don’t need anymore. Donating is a great way to give back and will free up room for you as well. You don’t want your new home to be packed with unnecessary clutter. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK offers junk removal services at select locations and can get rid of unwanted items for you! A good rule of thumb for sorting is if you haven’t used or worn it in the last year and don’t see yourself using it, it’s probably safe to get rid of.

Stay on track

It’s easy to get sidetracked with all that we have going on in our lives, but with a move its important to stay focused and be prepared. Have a checklist as well as a packing list ready to help track your progress. Remember to be flexible, as things don’t always go as planned. For more resources and checklist to help you stay on track, click here!

Be patient

Keep in mind, not everything will get done in one day. It’s important to stay patient with the process and allow yourself time to relax when you can. Take it day by day as the move approaches approaches so you won’t have as much to tackle when the day arrives.

With a downsizing move, we have all the right professional tools to help you. We can assist you with the entire move, the packing, delivery, loading/unloading, junk removal, or even storage for things you don’t want to keep in the new house. Learn more about these services by clicking here.
