As a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchisee, the number one goal for your franchise is offering high-quality services for customers in order to meet all of their moving, packing, storage, and even junk removal needs.
Additional services help to diversify revenue streams, and we’re committed to supporting our franchisees in offering a wide range of services to meet this goal. A key area of business for all TWO MEN AND A TRUCK locations is meeting the long-distance moving needs of our customers.
Being able to operate as a long-distance moving franchise expands our reach to customers looking to move further than across town or across the state. At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, we offer two long-distance options: Expedited Long-Distance and Value Flex®.
Types of long-distance services
The more traditional version of our long-distance options, the expedited option is as simple as loading up one of our moving trucks and driving to the customer’s new destination, whether across the state or country. With this service, you can offer quick delivery times and guarantee the same movers who loaded the belongings will be the ones unloading at the new home or business.
This expedited moving option allows our franchises to offer exact dates of delivery, giving customers the chance to settle into their new homes or office settings even sooner and without guessing when their items will arrive.
For customers looking for a cross-country moving franchise on a budget, Value Flex is the perfect option. Using a network of designated hubs and feeders, the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchise closet to the customer will load up their belongings into our specialized containers, where they are then loaded onto a third-party carrier. This third-party carrier will transport their belongings to the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK franchise closest to their new city, where the items are unloaded and delivered to the customer.
Also falling under our Value Flex umbrella is the option for a crated moving option. This is ideal for very small moves, and intended for customers looking to ship just a few belongings long-distance. Our teams will load the customer’s items into a specialized shipping crate and use the same third-party delivery system as Value Flex to get the belongings to their final destination.
Both options require a flexibility in moving dates from customers, but also offer an affordable alternative to the traditional expedited moving option.
As a franchisee, certain building and equipment requirements are required – along with specialized containers for Value Flex – as an investment to offer our full long-distance moving package. However, this investment makes you a go-to destination for customers looking to move long-distance, and will help you continue to diversify revenue streams for your business.
