Moving Services

Local moving

Local moving is what started our brand more than 30 years ago, and we take pride in exceeding our customers’ expectations! We offer a professionally trained and background checked moving team to ensure your belongings are handled with care and that your move runs smoothly.

Long-distance moving

Whether you’re moving across town or across the country, we’ll get you there. We specialize in long-distance moving, keeping your items safe and secure along the way with the same customer service excellence our reputation was built upon.

Packing Services

Having more than 30 years of experience as the leaders in the moving industry, we’ve learned a thing or two when it comes to packing efficiently. We offer a variety of packing services, from just a few items to an entire home or business. If you’re looking to do it yourself, our locations carry all of the necessary supplies.


If you’re in between homes, completing home renovations, or just need a solution for items that won’t fit inside your home, finding a place for your items can be tricky. Our onsite storage units can provide you with storage flexibility, short or long-term.

Value Flex®

Long-distance moving can be a hassle, but with our new Value Flex long-distance moving service, it doesn’t have to be! Value Flex offers the same outstanding customer service we’re known for, but with flexible pricing and delivery dates.

Loading and Unloading Services

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s Carry Crew service allows you to hire moving help by the hour to load and unload your rental truck or storage container. Our professional moving teams can provide this new moving labor service and save you the hassle of heavy lifting.

All of our crews participate in continued training to ensure all of our movers work efficiently for your move.
