Two Men and a Truck: In-Depth Breakdown


📊 Our rating: 4.5/5

  • Full-service or labor-only options
  • Different pricing for each franchise
  • Ways to save on long-distance moves

Each Two Men and a Truck location sets its own hourly rates and fees, but 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 puts Two Men and a Truck pricing within the national average range for a local move ($883–2,546).[1]

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.

We like the Value Flex option

Two Men and A Truck has two models for long-distance moves: Expedited and Value Flex.[2] Value Flex is the best choice if you’re trying to move on a budget.

Expedited service is a typical full service move where employees load, drive the truck, and unload at the new location for you within the timeframe that you choose. The biggest perk here is that you’ll get a dedicated truck so your shipment doesn’t get mixed up with someone else’s. The obvious downside is that expedited service costs the most.

Value Flex is similar to renting a shipping container. Movers will pack all your stuff in a 7′ x 7′ x 4′ container, then ship it to any local Two Men and a Truck franchise you want where local laborers will unload it for you (the company uses moving services in their network to do this, but they’re all authorized by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration). If you’re flexible and don’t mind your stuff arriving within a five day window, you can save money with Value Flex.

  • Large, nationwide franchise
  • Phone quotes
  • One-month suggested booking time

Two Men and a Truck has a large fleet spread over hundreds of franchise locations. Of course, some states have more Two Men and a Truck locations than others ― but most metro areas have at least one franchise. That means that you shouldn’t have any trouble booking your move no matter where you are.

Two Men and a Truck’s website suggests booking your move at least a month in advance. But some locations, like St. Louis and Chicago, told us they can handle last-minute moves, too, with less than a week’s notice. 

Two Men and a Truck offers free quotes before booking. To get a quote, you can call your local franchise and talk to a team member, or start a quote online. Unfortunately, the company doesn’t offer online estimates (they’ll contact you to get more detailed information before sharing a quote). This might take a bit longer, but it means your quote will be more accurate.

Before reviewing a moving company, we research, evaluate and score four major categories on a 1—5 scale. The category scores all factor into the mover’s overall rating.

  • Value (30%)
  • Customer experience (30%)
  • Credibility (15%)
  • Availability (15%)


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

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.


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.


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.
