    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 320) and trucks (2,100) 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 that you could build a successful business while taking care of the people you serviced along with your community. Today, the widely respected company has more than 341 locations worldwide, 2,100 trucks on the road, 8,000 employees during peak season, and performed its five millionth move June 2014. 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 your franchise.

    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.
