Dedicated to our Durham/Chapel Hill Communities
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Durham/Chapel Hill has great pride in the community we serve. Our focus has always been to not only be a great moving company, but to be a great ambassador to our local community. Our partnership with InterAct of Wake County has made our annual Movers for Moms® campaign a great success. We accept donations that are given to mothers in need on Mother’s Day each year. Last fall, we also partnered with the Animal Protection Society of Durham to launch our first Triangle-area Movers for Mutts campaign. The program was extremely successful as we were able to raise over $14,000 for the Animal Protection Society of Durham and over 100 dogs were adopted into local loving homes! We are not just your local Movers. We are a local partners who care about the greater Durham/Chapel Hill/Burlington communities.
MOVERS FOR MOMS®
Our annual Movers for Moms® campaign has been very successful in and around the Triangle as we have been able to partner with great local companies such as InterAct of Wake County to help local mothers in need. This program is designed as a donation program to help women in domestic abuse situations who are forced to leave their current living arrangements and are in need of basic necessities such as clothes, toiletries, and other non-perishable items. We are elated to have completed our 2017 version of this wonderful program and we would like to provide a special thank you to community partners Triangle area Dairy Queen locations, RE/MAX One Realty, Kendra Scott, La Petite of Raleigh, and Rainbow Child Care Centers. With your amazing support, we were able to donate over 4000 items to InterAct on Mother's Day 2017!!

Our RDU team is also a proud participant in the International Franchise Association's (IFA) Franchise Action Network. This program is designed to help not only franchised businesses, but small businesses in general, combat legislation that can be harmful to their future.
