Since its inception in the 1980s, community engagement has been a cornerstone of Two Men and a Truck’s culture. Movers for Moms represents the company’s commitment to giving back, focusing on supporting mothers facing challenging circumstances.

How does the program work?  Two Men and a Truck locations nationwide collaborate with local businesses, schools, and organizations to gather essential care items like soap and shampoo for women residing in domestic abuse or homeless shelters. Once donations are collected, the move teams meticulously sort them before delivering them to partnering shelters around Mother’s Day.

The roots of Two Men and a Truck run deep, originating in the early 1980s when brothers Brig and Jon Sorber started moving people in Lansing, Michigan, using a ’66 Ford pickup truck. Their mother, Mary Ellen Sheets, played a pivotal role in the company’s early days, designing the iconic “stick-men” logo that remains emblematic of the brand to this day.

What began as a small-scale operation has blossomed into a global enterprise, with over 380 locations worldwide. Sheets’ vision and dedication laid the foundation for the company’s expansion, epitomizing the spirit of entrepreneurship and community stewardship.

As the company continues to evolve, its commitment to exceeding customer expectations remains unwavering. From a single truck to a fleet of over 3,000 vehicles, the company’s journey symbolizes growth, innovation, and above all, a steadfast dedication to serving communities and uplifting individuals in need.

Two Men and A Truck is the nation’s largest franchised moving company, operating in 47 states and expanding internationally, with locations in Canada, Ireland, and the United Kingdom.
