Company Overview

Mary Ellen Sheets founded Two Men and a Truck International Inc. in 1985 after her two high-school-age sons left their small moving business behind to attend college. Calls had continued to come in for moving services after their departure, so Sheets took over the business and began franchising in 1989. The Lansing, Michigan-based company is still family-owned and privately held and has locations across the United States.

From the Advertiser

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is a customer-centric operation offering customers a complete range of home and business moving, packing, and even junk removal services. TWO MEN AND A TRUCK movers are capable of doing as little or as much as customers need.

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 (over 380) and trucks (nearly 3,000) 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 movers).

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s proven system is consistently ranked as a top franchise opportunity by such entities as Franchise Business Review's "Franchise 50," Entrepreneur Magazine's Franchise 500, and Franchise Times Top 200 list.

It's our commitment to providing customers quality service that has helped grow our system and earned us the reputation of being the "Movers Who Care®."

Our franchise system offers:

  • A proven operating system including user-friendly management software
  • Comprehensive training program for franchisees and frontline staff including initial and ongoing curriculum
  • Performance management tools
  • Ongoing support and sophisticated marketing programs
  • Dynamic website and franchise intranet
  • Brand recognition and federally protected trademark
  • Listed SBA Registry

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchisees come from diverse educational and professional backgrounds and share these attributes:

  • Capable of working within systems
  • Possess excellent communications skills
  • Enjoy working with people
  • Effective at delegating
  • Share our core values
  • Hold a strong desire to grow a business to its full potential

Created in 1985 and offered its first franchise in 1989, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK continues to grow in the U.S. (44 states) and seeks to expand internationally beyond its current franchises in Canada, Ireland and the United Kingdom.
