TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is gearing up for its busiest moving weekend of the year from Friday, June 29 to Sunday, July 1. The nation’s largest moving franchise, with 346 locations across America, will complete more than 6,000 moves that weekend alone.
The company estimates that its 2,900 trucks will drive 372,000 miles and use 62,000 gallons of fuel. Eight thousand movers and drivers will be walking (or running when not carrying items) 10,782 miles that weekend, carrying more than 37 million pounds of housewares. To put that into perspective, that poundage is the equivalent of 37,507 grand pianos, 10,195 cars, 2,652 Tyrannosaurus rex, 182 space shuttles, 161 blue whales, 33,418,620 soccer balls, 12.8 redwood trees, or 1.26 Brooklyn Bridges.

It provides a time for our franchise owners, movers and team members to come together as a system to focus on truly operating as a team and to work toward another successful year,” said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK CEO Jon Nobis. “Our movers and drivers will be completing 2.5 moves every minute, with an average of 22 moves taking place at each of our franchised locations throughout the three-day weekend.
