Two Men and a Truck-Personal Service
Yesterday my post was about our decision to move back to Houston. All I can say is I’m glad that we’re doing this now rather than 5 years down the road.
There’s so much to consider when moving not the least of which is how you are going to make this move. This is not a cross-town or even a cross-county move. We’re going about 1200 miles west!
The first moving company that came to mind was Two Men and a Truck. I’ve known the local franchise owners, Janelle Dowley and her husband Joel, from my membership in Women’s Council of Realtors. They are both very active in their community and giving back has been as much of their business as moving and relocating others has been.
|Janelle was one of the models at a WCR Fashion show a few years ago!|
They asked their Move Consultant and Relocation Specialist, Carla, to work with me. Just as you need a good local agent to walk you through buying or selling your home, you definitely need a good mover who will help protect your furnishings and goods from your old home to your new home.
Carla is that person. Her whole attitude makes you feel that she wants to do the best she can for you to help make your move comfortable for you. She doesn’t just rattle off quotes.
If there is a possibility that you can save some money by sharing a truck with someone else who is moving, then she will work with you. In fact, Carla made calls to several of her contacts in Texas to see if something might be worked out.
And knowing that clients need to speak with at least one or two other moving companies for quotes, she gave me questions that I should ask them to help me decide.
While I was speaking with her, Carla was also making calls on behalf of one of her clients trying to find some organization that would pick up the furniture that she wanted to donate. (that’s another post!) She was going above and beyond what she had to do but that is just in her nature.
If you are making a move in this area, call Two Men and a Truck! And don’t forget to ask for Carla.
