The moving company dedicated to the community
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Fort Wayne takes pride in giving back to the community because it helps build relationships and lets our employees get involved and feel like they are part of something bigger. It lives up to our motto that we are the “Movers Who Care®”, and we take pride in helping our community in any way we can.
Truckload of Warmth®
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Fort Wayne started partnering with other local businesses with the goal of supporting localfamilies in need of warmth during the cold winter season. The National Coalition for the Homeless states that 44% of the nation's homeless are unsheltered. During the month of November we are collecting gently used winter clothing and delivering it to a local charity to make a difference during the blistering cold winters in our community. Items can be dropped off during November at our local franchise and other collections sites during the month. For more information stay up to date on our social media sites or call our office.
