Why TMT?

“You can’t build your business from the back of a truck.”

This has become the mantra of our most successful franchisees through the U.S. — and they’re correct! The ingredients of a thriving TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchise include trustworthy management/mover/driver teams, a solid online lead generation plan and, most of all, consistent quality customer service that extends from move-booking and estimating to moving the last item into a new home.

So, now that you know franchisees work on growing the business much the way traditional businesses achieve success, it’s time to learn more.

How big is the market for moving services? According to the U.S. Census, on average, 14 percent of the population moves every year. This figure doesn’t include business moves or the growing demand for manpower to move a limited number of items within homes and offices. The growth in locations (more than 380) and trucks (2,800) across the nation and abroad is a testament to the fact that a moving franchise is recession-proof and is a contributor to the economy’s job creation (8,000 employees).


History:

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK began in the early 1980s with brothers Jon Sorber and Brig Sorber, and a ‘66 Ford pickup truck. Over time, Jon, Brig, their mom, Mary Ellen Sheets, and sister Melanie Bergeron, worked endlessly to grow the family business. They understood you could build a successful business while taking care of the people you served, along with supporting and volunteering in your community. Today, the widely respected company has more than 380 locations worldwide, 2,800 trucks on the road, 8,000 employees during peak season, and performed will perform its seventh millionth move spring 2018. We are a company built on Core Values that permeate the entire franchise system.

Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what it takes to make a franchise thrive. We serve both home and business customers daily, and offer a range of services including packing services, and the sale of moving supplies at franchise locations. These services contribute to customer satisfaction - and they provide additional revenue opportunities for franchisees.

Today, as the nation’s largest franchised local moving company, we’ve set our sights on continued growth and innovation, while remaining rooted to our core principle: exceeding customers’ expectations in quality and value – every time.
