Since 2008, removals franchise Two Men and a Truck has increased its USA, Canada and Ireland franchise network to over 215 franchise owners and 1,200 removal trucks, the company reports.

Mike Harrison, UK Managing Director of Two Men and a Truck, said: “The downturn in house sales hasn’t affected us one bit because we’re in demand through a reputation of providing great customer service. Over 2 million people will be on the move this year, either from homes, apartments or businesses, in a market worth £1.5 billion. We specialise in short-haul in a radius of around 25 miles, so we can keep our overheads down by not making long, costly and time-consuming journeys.

“Couple that with a proven operating system, an expertise gathered over 25 years and a really friendly, professional team who’ll look after your furniture as if it were their own grandmother’s and you’ve got a proven business model that’s going places.”

Two Men and a Truck has been doing business in Dublin for five years and has proved the business model successful for both the UK and Irish markets.
