Two Men and a Truck: In-Depth Breakdown


📊 Our rating: 4/5

  • Hourly rates for local moves
  • Full-service or labor-only options
  • Different pricing for each franchise

Two Men and a Truck’s prices are pretty standard for the industry. But the company lets you pick which services you need, which could save you money.

We asked Two Men and a Truck for a quote to move the contents of a two-bedroom house within Colorado Springs. The rep gave us a quote of $1,293–1,743.

That’s within the national average range for a local move ($900–2,500, according to HomeAdvisor).

Each Two Men and a Truck location sets its own hourly rates and fees. But based on our research, each location’s pricing is right around the national average.

Two Men and a Truck is a big business, so don’t expect the discounts and freebies you can get from smaller moving companies.

You can save money by choosing labor-only services. You’ll have to provide your own truck, but you’ll get a lower hourly rate than you would with full-service moving.

Customer Experience

Our question: Is this moving company worth it? 

We start assessing value by requesting a quote from the mover. A quote gives us a breakdown of the company’s fees (hourly rates, truck fees, etc.) and tells us how costs compare to the local and national average. 

If a company’s costs are drastically higher than these averages, we can recommend more affordable movers that we’ve also thoroughly vetted. A detailed quote also gives us insight into any additional fees. For example, is packing included, or do you have to pay extra?

Customer Experience

Our question: What’s the common user experience for this service?

We look up the mover’s average rating on popular review sites like Yelp, Trustpilot, and Google. Then we read as many reviews as possible to verify the rating and see if any positive or negative themes stand out.

If we notice potential red flags, like lots of damage complaints, we reach out to the customers to see if there’s a cause for concern.

There are also companies who pay people to leave positive reviews. So, if the reviews are glowing, we reach out to reviewers to see if they’re real customers.


Our question: Is this company a legitimate business?

Unfortunately, moving scams are fairly common. Lots of people have experienced losing their deposit, movers never showing up, and companies outright stealing their personal items.

To check a company’s credibility, we look for things like Department of Transportation registration, active insurance, and licensing with the appropriate state authorities. 

Then we look at sites like the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to check the mover’s accreditation, rating, and any unresolved formal complaints against them.

If all the credibility signals check out, then we give the business a high credibility rating. If something seems off, we reach out to the company and former customers for comment.


Our question: How bookable is this moving service?

To check if the company can typically accommodate a customer’s desired moving date, we ask the company how soon we’d be able to move. Then we ask if the date is flexible.

We also comb Department of Transportation records to see how many trucks and drivers the mover has. A small fleet is a sign that the mover has limited capacity. The company might not be able to handle lots of moves during a busy season.
