Our 5-minute guide to moving boxes

When it’s time to move, the best way to ensure your items arrive at their new home undamaged is to use proper packing materials. We can help! We have everything you’ll need on packing day: Boxes in all sizes, packing paper, bubble wrap, tape and tape guns.

The best advice we can give about packing is to use sturdy moving boxes instead of liquor boxes, copy paper boxes or even second-hand boxes from your favorite web retailer. Our moving boxes are specifically engineered to protect your belongings during transit, and their uniform size means they will stack neatly in the truck, maximizing space. Best of all, they’re affordable, with pricing starting as low as $1.65 per box. Don’t risk breaking Grandma’s china or your favorite vase, just to save a couple dollars!

Not sure what size boxes to use?

This handy Guide to Moving Boxes will help!

Getting hygge with it

What is hygge?

Hygge (pronounced “HUE-gah”) was started in Denmark back in the 1880s, but the hygge concept has surged in popularity over the past couple of years. Hygge is a way of thinking, decorating… living, that embraces a comfortable, warm, cozy feeling.

Why has hygge become so popular?

Living the hygge lifestyle could be described as a similar to experiencing that holiday feeling all year ’round. Many people have decided to fill their homes with hygge elements, thereby creating a little escape from whatever they do outside the home. Creating a hygge space at home provides a natural respite from the everyday fast-paced hustle and bustle, anxiety from work or school, and stressful social obligations.

How can I embrace that hygge feeling?

Living hygge at home is easy. Some of the basics include:

  • Lighting candles everywhere (this is the single most critical item to Danes).
  • Baking anything, but especially cakes or cookies. Bonus points for eating them while they’re still warm.
  • Cozying up to the fireplace with a fine china teacupful of Mexican hot chocolate.
  • Incorporating subtle light in smaller spaces rather than using large lamps or overhead lighting. Adding twinkle lights to walls, windows, little corner spaces, and even houseplants will raise the hygge factor. Tip: The use of electrical outlet timers will save you time turning everything off each evening.
  • Placing furry pillows and soft, fluffy blankets in every seating area.
  • Adding greenery in plain white pots accented with pink Himalayan salt lamps. Bonus: There are unofficial claims that these lamps remove harmful ions, resulting in improved sleep, decreased allergy and asthma symptoms, and neutralized electromagnetic radiation.
  • Pouring yourself a glass of wine, snuggling into your favorite sweatpants and diving into a good book.

It’s important not to go overboard, so finding the right balance is vital. Creating clutter will essentially cause the opposite effect.  It’s also time to put away your phone and close your laptop; electronic screens and Twitter notifications are going to counteract the hygge environment you’re going for.

Is hygge just for winter?

Even in Arizona, wintertime is a ‘hygge’ time of year. Wearing a snuggly sweater and boots will give you that hygge feeling, as will snuggling up in a plush blanket with a cup of chai tea. Of course, the holiday season is naturally hygge but if you want to step it up a notch, DIY a tree skirt out of faux fur or use flannel fabric as gift-wrapping.

You can keep that hygge feeling throughout the warmer months too, by bringing hygge outdoors with twinkle lights, a (gas) fire pit and candles. Host an outdoor movie night or a backyard dinner party. Just spending time outdoors enjoying your garden is the epitome of hygge.

What else do I need to be hygge?

Hygge isn’t just about material things or decorating with the latest trend. Living the hygge life means embracing its state of mind. Togetherness and spending time with loved ones is important, as is self-care and alone time. Being present and embracing every moment is key.

19 helpful resources for organizing your home

January is typically the time when we catch the bug to declutter and organize our spaces. Perhaps it’s just a carryover from putting away holiday decorations, or maybe it’s the fresh start we’re all making with the new year.

Why organize?

Science has proven that clutter causes stress, in large part because the mess makes it more difficult to relax. It also inhibits creativity and productivity, and causes guilt and anxiety. Studies show that people waste up to an average of one hour per day looking for items they have misplaced.

If you’re moving soon, cutting clutter means reducing the amount of stuff you’ll be moving. This results in fewer items to pack and unpack, and could be a substantial money-saver for you.

Check out these helpful online resources to help get your home organized, and keep it that way.

Movers for Mutts 2017: A huge success, thanks to you!

We are so grateful for all the support we’ve had with this year’s Movers for Mutts supply drive. Because of caring citizens in Mesa, Gilbert, Queen Creek and Chandler, we were able to collect 839 items, including over 1,000 lbs. of dog and cat food!

20 East Valley businesses served as collection points for the drive this year, including VCA Animal Referral and Emergency Center of AZ which collected 106 items, Vistara at San Tan Village with 101 items, and Contemporary Dentistry with a whopping 130 items!

“Friends For Life is beyond grateful for our ongoing partnership with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®. The Movers for Mutts Drive is the most recent collaboration between Friends for Life and TWO MEN, and as is always the case, the results are unimaginably spectacular! On behalf of the rescued animals currently in our care, and those we will rescue in the future, we look forward to continued support from TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®. The deepness of our gratitude cannot be measured.”
– Barb Savoy, Director of Public Relations & Marketing, Friends For Life Animal Rescue

If you’re thinking about adopting a new cat or dog, please consider selecting an animal from a no-kill shelter like Friends For Life. Every time someone adopts from a shelter, they’re saving two lives because it frees up space and funds for the facility to care for another animal in need. Information on adoptable pets can be found on their website and Facebook page.

We are truly touched by the support from the community. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of homeless pets!

DIY Moving Box Project: Kitty Castle

Cats love to climb and hide – and if you have some leftover moving boxes, you can easily build this fun Kitty Castle to keep them happy and playful.  Not only is it great fun for felines, it’s extremely budget-friendly and completely customizable. Just follow our easy, step-by-step tutorial.

To build our Kitty Castle, we used TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® small and medium-sized moving boxes, but you could use any size cardboard boxes and to make your own unique creation. Just ensure the boxes are large enough for your cat to freely move around in. If you don’t have any on hand, you can purchase all the boxes you need from us for under $12*.

* Each location is independently owned and operated; box pricing may vary at other locations.

Project: Moving Box Kitty Castle
Skill level: Easy
Cost: Minimal
Time commitment: 1 hour to 2 hours, depending on how elaborate you want to be

Materials:

  • (1) small size moving box (16″x12″x12″)
  • (2) medium size moving boxes (18″x18″x16″)
  • Box cutter/utility knife
  • Pencil or pen
  • Hot glue gun & glue
  • Packing tape & tape gun
  • Spray paint (optional)
  • Black permanent marker (optional)
  • Dowels or skewers (optional – for flags)

STEP 1: First, we are going to cut out all the doors and windows. Using a pencil, draw door and window openings onto the front and back of the small box as desired. This will be the center portion of your castle. Ensure there is at least one or two openings large enough for your cat to fit through. Optional: Create a ‘drawbridge’ opening by having the door open in a downward motion rather than on the side. We opted to just create a large open door for our cats. Using your box cutter, cut out the openings. Tip: Save your best door and window cutout and use it as a template for the other boxes.

 

STEP 2: Center your door stencil on the other 2 sides of the small box, aligning with the bottom. Trace and cut out with your box cutter.

 

STEP 3: Using your stencil, draw window openings onto three sides of each of the large boxes. It will look best if they all match, but they don’t have to! Using the box cutter, cut out the openings.

 

STEP 4: Center your stencil on the non-window sides of large boxes aligning with the bottom of the box.  This will be the ‘doorway’ to the small box. Using the box cutter, cut out the opening. We also opted to put a “2nd floor” doorway between the two towers, but it is not necessary.

NOTE: At this point you should now have (1) small box with at least 3 doors (and windows on 2 sides) and (2) large boxes with windows on 3 sides and a 1st floor doorway on one side.

 

STEP 5: If desired, cut out a zig zag pattern to mimic the top of a castle (this step can be skipped if you want to simplify). Tip: Use your first cutout as a stencil for the other sides.

 

STEP 6: Now we are going to close up our boxes! Fold in the bottom flaps of the small box and secure with hot glue. Repeat for the large boxes.

 

STEP 7: Fold in the top flaps of the small box and secure with hot glue. Reinforce the top of the center/small box with packing tape (inside) just for extra security for when your cats climb on the ‘roof’.

 

STEP 8: Now, let’s put it all together! Using hot glue, secure the large boxes to the small box as noted in the photos, lining up the interior doorway of each box. Again, you may wish to weight the boxes down to ensure they stay together while the glue sets. You should now have a completed structure!

 

STEP 9 (optional): After your hot glue is set and sufficiently secured, it’s time to decorate! In a well-ventilated area, spray paint the entire outside of the structure and set out until completely dry. If desired, decorate with black permanent marker. You may also wish to line the door and window openings with black duct tape for a more finished look and to smooth out any rough edges.

STEP 10 (optional): Cut out triangles from your scraps. Paint or color your “flags” and affix them to the top of the castle using hot glue or duct tape. Add pillows, stools, and toys to the inside of your kitty castle for extra fun and comfort.

STEP 11: Enjoy!

5 handy items for your move-in toolkit

The key to stress-free moving is preparation. You already know that you’ll need a basic tool set including a hammer, screwdrivers, pliers, and wrenches. But in order to be well-prepared for your new home, add these other helpful items to your “move-in toolkit” as well:

  1. Duct tape: This kind of goes without saying. This versatile staple can be used for quick fixes ranging from a torn shower curtain to a hole in your window screen.
  2. WD-40: You probably already know you can use this to spray a squeaky door frame or quiet a noisy garage door. But did you know this amazing product can also be used to separate stuck glassware, remove tough scuff marks from walls and floors, clean oil spots from a driveway, and banish lime stains from your toilet? Check out this link for 51 uses for WD-40. (PS – it can also remove duct tape!)
  3. Sticky notes: This cool trick makes it easy to hang photo frames and wall art in no time flat.
  4. Magic Eraser: This little guy is essential for removing soap scum, erasing crayon from walls, getting rid of rust, removing stains from microfiber upholstery, eliminating permanent marker, and getting patio furniture sparkly clean.
  5. Baking soda, lemon & vinegar: Use this magical formula to clean your whole house including your coffeemaker, baseboards, any areas with mold and mildew, mineral deposits on bathroom fixtures, oven spills, microwave & refrigerator, and more! Best of all, it’s 100% natural so it’s safe for pets and kids.

Creative DIY Costumes from Moving Boxes

Have you decided on a Halloween costume yet? Looking for something original, but have a limited budget? Why not repurpose your used moving boxes?!

Moving boxes are inexpensive and super easy to work with. Even if you don’t have any old ones laying around, you can get some new ones for a complete ‘boxtume’ project for $4 or less! The sky is the limit as far as creativity, and many of them can be put together in no time at all with simple supplies like construction paper, spray paint, glue and duct tape.

Need some inspiration? Check out Cleveland, Ohio TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®’s interview on their local morning program:

Customer Service Week Recap

Last week was Customer Service Week and TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® went all out to recognize our movers, customer service team, and of course… our customers!

We are so proud of our hard-working movers, and couldn’t let the week slip by without thanking them for taking such great care of our customers! Management surprised them with a lunchtime cookout to help fuel them up for their afternoon moves. They were able to enjoy a quick break with burgers, hot dogs, and all the fixin’s. In recognition of positive comments given by some of our customers this week, our General Manager also rewarded four of our hard-working movers with gift cards to their favorite snack spot!

The first point of contact for customers is our fantastic Customer Service Team, or as we like to call them, CSR Rock Stars! We wanted to make every day special for them this week, so we left little goodies at their desks each day, including flowers, candy, and a heart-felt thank you note from our General Manager. We topped off the special week with a catered lunch from our favorite local barbecue joint, Joe’s Real BBQ.

And how could we forget our amazing customers?! We surprised five of them by personally delivering a heart-felt “thank you” message along with freshly-baked muffins and TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® swag. One lucky customer received a $50 Home Depot gift card to help with those little “new home” projects.

At TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, we appreciate every customer and employee, and we strive to carry the spirit of this special week’s focus on customer service throughout the entire year.

16 Moving Tips for Seniors

Moving day is stressful for everyone, but if you are a senior citizen, there can be some special challenges. Seniors may have physical or mobility restrictions. Budgets can be tight if your income relies on government assistance. And it can be hard to let go of things you’ve had for a long time, especially if you’ve lived in the same home for decades.

We have compiled some of our top tips for seniors to help make your move easier:

  1. Hire your movers at least 2-3 weeks prior to your move. Schedules can fill up quickly, especially during the busy summer months.
  2. Allow plenty of time for packing – start as soon as you know you will be moving.
  3. To stay on task and avoid becoming overwhelmed, pack only one room at a time.
  4. Begin the packing process in a room you don’t have a lot of personal items in, like the office. It will give you great momentum for downsizing.
  5. Declutter and donate unneeded items to save time, money and stress. When deciding whether to keep or donate an item, ask yourself whether you’ve used it in the past year. If the answer is “no”, then it’s probably time to say goodbye. You don’t want to spend time or money moving things you don’t need!
  6. If you just can’t let go of some of your possessions, consider renting a storage space or keep them in the family by handing them down to a relative.
  7. Break the packing process down into smaller individual tasks to keep yourself from becoming overwhelmed.
  8. Use our helpful moving checklist as a tool to stay on track.
  9. Keep a moving “to do” list. Break it down into categories like “things to buy”, “things to do” and “phone calls to make”.
  10. Take measurements in your new home ahead of time, to ensure your furniture and appliances will fit. On moving day, you don’t want to have to deal with an unwelcome surprise like a bedroom set that won’t work!
  11. Use a suitcase or one of our small moving boxes to pack the essentials you will need for the first couple of days. Be sure to include medication, clothing, shoes, toiletries, device chargers, etc. Keep this with you during the move, so it does not get lost among the moving boxes heading onto the moving truck.
  12. When packing, label boxes with each room’s name. Use brightly colored markers, labels or sticky notes (different colors for each room) so they can be identified quickly and easily. This will cut down on the time it takes for the movers to place your items in your new home – which ultimately saves you money!
  13. Hire a professional like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® to do your packing and unpacking. Our movers undergo extensive training on proper packing techniques, so you can rest assured that your precious belongings will be safe as they travel to your new home.
  14. Hire a professional cleaning service to clean your old home, and your new one. This can save you hours of work. Plus, it will be just one less (big) thing you will have to do when you get to your new place.
  15. If you’re having trouble or are overwhelmed, don’t stress about it! Don’t be too proud to ask a friend or family member for help, or hire a professional organizer that specializes in senior services.
  16. Don’t overdo it – take frequent breaks, stay nourished and drink plenty of water. Don’t let yourself get so distracted that you forget about self-care!

We understand how difficult it can be to move, but with the proper care and planning, you can make the transition
