Christmas in July Coat Drive

Christmas in July Coat Drive

We’re getting ready for our second annual Christmas in July Coat Drive! When Nashville starts to get chilly in the winter, many local parents aren’t able to afford new jackets to properly fit their children. A couple years ago, we decided we wanted to host a coat drive to specifically benefit the students at Park Avenue Elementary who are living in poverty. Unfortunately, coat drives usually take place in the middle of winter after the kids are already in need of clothing to keep them warm. So last July, we decided to host a “Christmas in July” coat drive to collect jackets, coats, and sweaters ahead of time to prepare Park Avenue ahead of the winter season.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK hosts the Christmas in July Coat DriveOur 2016 coat drive was so successful that we decided to make it an annual tradition! We hope you’ll keep supporting these local children in need by coming to this year’s Christmas in July celebration on July 8th from 9 am-11 am! Our goal is to fill a 16-foot moving truck with new and gently-used coats, jackets, and sweaters for these K through 4th grade students. We’ll be parked in front of the Nashville location of Thriftsmart on Nolensville Road to take your donations.

This year, everyone (18+ years old) can enter to win a pair of tickets to one of the Nashville Ballet‘s December performances of The Nutcracker! We’re so excited about this raffle prize, which is valued at $148 and really helps us get into the Christmas spirit.

And that’s not all! Thriftsmart has generously offered (again!) to give a voucher for 50% off your next purchase at their store to everyone who makes a donation! Plus, we’ll be making kid-friendly DIY crafts out of moving boxes so your child can bring home a keepsake from the event. We’ll also be joined by our friends at The BIG 98 for our party music and prizes for your family.

Help us fill our truck with coats for these students in need! If you have any questions, please call or text us at 615-248-6288!

Summer Moving is Coming!

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is ready for the Nashville summer

While many families around the country start preparing for their annual summer vacations and local students get out of school, the moving industry is preparing for its busiest season of the year! Our “busy season” always takes place during the summer, which officially begins on June 20 right before midnight. We’re already gearing up for this year’s Biggest Move Weekend, which is coming up in less than a month on June 23-24!

We’re pretty excited about the upcoming hustle and bustle, but we also realize moving can be stressful for families who don’t move day-in and day-out like we do. Here are our top tips for a successful move during the hottest season of the year:

Call TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville to schedule your upcoming moveSchedule Moving Day sooner rather than later.

Since June is by far our busiest month of moving, you’ll want to call and reserve your spot as soon as possible. When you give us a few weeks’ notice, we’re usually able to schedule you on a less expensive day or have more flexibility in fitting you into the time of day you prefer (morning or afternoon). Another benefit to scheduling your moving day early is that you get a better idea of how many days you have to pack everything up. Although you can hire us to pack your belongings the day prior to your move, we totally understand that many customers prefer to organize and box up their own things.

Make sure your new home is ready for you.

During the spring and fall months, it’s not a big deal to wait a couple days for your HVAC unit to get hooked up with our electric and gas companies. However, when June comes around, you will definitely want the A/C functioning when you move in! Be sure your internet, cable, water, and other utilities are up and running prior to Moving Day.

Understand your movers’ limitations.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK sells mirror boxes for wall hangingsOur movers are more than happy to move as much as your entire home to just a few pieces of furniture! But to avoid being caught off-guard, make sure you think through Moving Day before we arrive. There are some things we can’t move, such as aquariums full of water, prescription medications, lawn mowers full of gasoline, and valuable jewelry. We also can’t keep certain fragile items safe, like your TV screens and wall hangings, unless they’re inside specialty boxes made to fit snugly around these objects.  Be sure to ask your sales representative about any other restrictions that may pertain to your move when you call, text, or email them.

Additionally, there are some steps you can take the day before Moving Day to cut down on your hourly costs. For example, make sure your appliances are unhooked, and furniture is easy to get to before the movers arrive. This way, the movers won’t have to take extra time moving things around to reach the bigger items they need to load into the truck first. You can also use colored duct tape to create color-coded labels on each box and durable furniture piece. Write the name of the corresponding room on each label, and your movers will be able to quickly deliver each item to the correct room without having to constantly ask you for direction.

Beat the Nashville heat!

On strenuous, fast-paced days, it can be difficult to remember to sunscreen, especially when you plan to spend a large portion of the day outdoors. Tennessee weather is great because even on hot days, there are usually plenty of clouds in the sky to provide some shade from the sun. However, clouds also magnify the sun’s impact on your skin, so you still need protection. Make sure the sunscreen you choose provides a shield against both UVB and UVA rays–most popular brands only protect against UVB rays.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK summer movingAnd remember that the outside temperature is cooler than the inside of a car, and much cooler than the back of a moving truck. We’ll do our best to transport and unload your belongings efficiently, but you never know when we’ll get stuck in traffic or come across another unexpected issue. Plan for your things to be in 100+ degree conditions for at least a couple hours, and consider which sensitive items you may need to carry in your personal vehicle to keep them safe from melting during the transition.

So You’re Moving to 12th South…

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK's guide to the 12th South Neighborhood of Nashville

So you’re moving to 12th South–what a fun and trendy neighborhood to be a part of! ​With plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, and events popping up every day, you’ll surely never get tired of this hip area. But moving to a new place can be overwhelming, especially if you’re new to a growing city like Nashville. Let us make your transition easier with some of our favorite places to frequent in 12th South!

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK's recommendations for coffee in 12th SouthMorning Java: First, coffee, so you have energy to explore the rest of the neighborhood. Our top pick is Frothy Monkey, and their first ever location is right in the heart of 12th South. With its comfy atmosphere and variety of yummy foods and drinks, you can’t go wrong with this place. But if you just want a quiet place to read or study alone, grab a cup o’ joe at Portland Brew. This tiny little coffee shop offers a calmer atmosphere, inspired by the northwest.

Best Playground: No matter the age of your kids, they will love Sevier Park. With the new addition of the Sevier Park Community Center, this place is always bustling with people joining in a variety of fitness classes. The park features lots of picnic tables, plenty of green space for people and pets to enjoy, and a fun-filled play set for your kiddos. And be sure to check out the Farmers Market, hosted at the park from May through October to get the best fresh veggies, fruits, and flowers.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK's recommendations for casual food in the 12th South neighborhood of NashvilleCasual Eats: There are so much good food in the 12th South neighborhood! For your taco craving, hop in line at Taqueria Del Sol  and get some delicious fish tacos…and you might even spot Ben Rector or Dierks Bentley there! If your family is full of barbecue lovers, hit up the original location of Edley’s BBQ. Finally, for those of you with sweet tooth, you must try the newest location of Five Daughters Bakery! Five Daughters is great because they offer lots of options for people who have any type of allergies.

Family Fun: When it’s warm and sunny outside, we highly recommend Las Paletas all-natural, handmade popsicles. The friendly folks at this small restaurant offer dozens of flavors with the option of chocolate dipping, and even have special popsicle holders to keep sticky, melting liquid off your kids’ fingers. On a rainy day, get the kids to Adventure Science Center! They will love playing with all the interactive games while also learning about science.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK's recommendations for fun in the 12th South neighborhood of nashvilleGrown-Up Fun: So you’ve worked at a desk all day–you deserve a little fun now! Every Thursday night, grab a table at Flipside for Trivia Night and enjoy some good, clean fun. Get there early and eat some delicious fried chicken prepared every way imaginable or just settle for the loaded tater tots (YUM!). Another great place to expel your stress is 12th South Yoga, the only yoga studio in Nashville offering Iyengar yoga. And you can’t forget Zanies, a local comedy club which offers plenty of laughs as you wind down from your day.

Staycation Attractions: So you’ve finally got that long weekend that you’ve been waiting for…what is there to do? Get your shopping shoes on, because this area is loaded with cute little shops to browse. Whites Mercantile not only offers an eclectic collection of Southern items, but is also owned by Hank Williams Jr.’s daughter, local singer-songwriter Holly Williams. Draper James is the next celebrity-owned stop on the list. Reese Witherspoon’s store offers beautiful clothes in your typical Southern Belle style. And when you really need to feel like you’ve escaped from home, check out Embers Ski Lodge, the new bar in Nashville which truly feels like a trip to the snowy slopes.

Unique spots in 12th South Nashville neighborhoodUnique Spots: Everything is so vibrant and alive in the distinctive 12th South neighborhood! For example, Fork’s Drum Closet is a one-of-a-kind music store selling drum sets, cymbals from China, and snares of all sorts. You also have to check out Sprinkles to get some on-demand cupcakes… If you have never heard of Sprinkles, you are missing out! It’s this amazing cupcake vending machine (yes, you read that correctly) right next to Draper James, and you can get cupcakes 24 hours per day. And your new neighborhood happens to have some of the best Instagram photo opps in Nashville, with iconic exterior murals like the I BELIEVE IN NASHVILLE flag, raining donuts next to Five Daughters Bakery, and the brightly colored walls of Draper James.

Moving Help: And of course, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is always here to make you move as easy as possible! Don’t be shy and give us a call or text at 615-248-6288 to request your free moving quote. We would love to help and make 12th South your home sweet home!

Moving Moms Forward for Mother’s Day

Movers for Moms collects Mother's Day donations for Safe Haven Family Shelter

Happy (early) Mother’s Day to every mom in Nashville!  Every year, we like to celebrate our local moms who need a little extra support from their community through our Movers for Moms campaign.  During Movers for Moms, we collect donations for the moms living at Safe Haven Family Shelter.  These moms have escaped domestic violence, suffered a loss of a family member, lost their home due to a natural disaster, or have experienced some other unexpected tragedy that has left their family without a home.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville's first annual Movers for Moms Festival benefiting Safe Haven Family ShelterThis year was our fourth year running the Movers for Moms drive locally.  In 2016, the Nashville community came together and helped us collect over 3,700 donations for these deserving mothers.  We decided to set our sights high this year and aim for at least 5,000 donations!

Throughout March and April, we set up Movers for Moms donation boxes all over town at places like iLoveKickboxing, Zeitlin Realtors & Co, and Hermitage Kindercare where everyone could drop off their gifts for Safe Haven mamas.  But we took it a step further and hosted our first annual Movers for Moms Festival on April 22nd to raise even more money and collect more necessities!  The festival celebrated every mom in Nashville with free facials from Mary Kay, fun games for the kids, and tons of giveaways from our other festival vendors.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK delivers the Movers for Moms donations to Safe Haven Family Shelter in NashvilleWe knew we could count on you to make Safe Haven’s moms feel special, loved, and supported on their big day.  But as always, Nashville over-delivered…  You helped us collect over 9,000 donations of clothing items, diapers, bed sheets, and other necessities for moms who are starting their lives over at Safe Haven!  Thank you so much for your generous contributions!  We can’t wait to see what next year’s Movers for Moms drive will bring.

Moving Tips for Mom (and Dad!)

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK moving tips for moms and dads

We’re in the middle of our fourth annual Movers for Moms charity drive benefiting local moms in need at Safe Haven Family Shelter! These moms are going through a very emotional transition as they move from Safe Haven into affordable, long-term housing with their families. But this transition isn’t just taxing on Safe Haven’s moms–it can be very stressful for any parent moving with kids to a new home! Since we’re Nashville’s professional moving company, we want to share our top tips for making a move easier on you and the kiddos.

Before Your Move

One of the most important things for you to do before moving is to make sure your children feel comfortable, not anxious, about the upcoming relocation. As you prepare to find your new home, be direct with your kids about the change that’s coming up, and make sure they know the expected timeline you plan to follow. Otherwise, it can be scary for kids to know that big events are coming up without knowing exactly what steps will be taken and when. During your conversations about moving, make sure you show them with your facial expressions and tone of voice that the change is a positive one for your family, and not something to be afraid of.

Another way you can get your kids excited about their new home is by talking about specific things they can look forward to. Will they get to pick the color of their new room? Will they graduate to a new “big girl” or “big boy” bed as a result of the move? Are there landmarks like parks or fun stores that you’ll be able to frequent in the new neighborhood? Setting happy expectations for them will help alleviate uncertainty about what’s to come.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK's tips to moving with kidsDon’t be afraid to get the kids involved in the packing process! While you’re packing up their rooms, you can carefully wrap the breakable items and let them stuff clothing and stuffed animals in the cracks to keep everything snug. We also encourage parents to purchase a “Truckie’s Treasure Chest” moving box, which is smaller than a normal box, includes a handle, and is easy to open and close for little hands. Kids can pack all their favorite books, toys, and pajamas for the first night in the new house into this treasure chest. Then they’ll know exactly where their comfort items are located after the move.

It’s also a great idea to let your children be involved in the purging process. Have them help you pack up old clothing and toys that will be donated to other kids in need as you get rid of old belongings that don’t need to be moved. Explain which charity you’ll be donating these items to, and what type of children you’re supporting. For example, your donations to Safe Haven Family Shelter help local Middle Tennessee families who have lost their homes because of natural disasters or unhealthy domestic situations.

On Moving Day

When Moving Day comes, your attention will likely be pulled in a hundred different directions. You may want to consider having children stay at a grandparent or friend’s house so you can focus on the task at hand without worrying about your kids getting underfoot of the movers or straying too far from the new home.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK moving with kidsIf this isn’t an option, plan a special Moving Day activity or two which will keep the kids’ attention for an extended period of time. This could be making crafts to decorate their new bedrooms, or organizing their books onto shelves in the new home.

If you’re moving with older children who you trust with your tablet or smartphone, this could be a good time for them to get acquainted with the new neighborhood. Challenge them find three or four local activities they want to check out near your new home after the dust settles from moving. These could include visiting the nearest Jeni’s Ice Cream store, biking a nearby greenway trail, or joining a fun class at the local YMCA branch.

After Your Move

You can make a fort out of old TWO MEN AND A TRUCK moving boxesKeep the kids involved at this point, even though it’s going to be a busy couple weeks getting everything unpacked. In fact, they can be helpful as you get settled in! You can turn unpacking into a fun activity by making a scavenger hunt game or bingo board out of the belongings they can find and put away in their own rooms. Kids also love using the unpacked boxes to build forts and make other fun crafts as you work to clear out the used cardboard.

You also want to make sure your children get adjusted to their new neighborhood in a reasonable amount of time, so they won’t feel anxious about their new neighbors, school, and extracurricular activities. You can help them feel at ease by taking them for a walk on a Saturday morning, when neighbors may be out to say hello as they do yardwork or drink coffee on the porch. Drive them up to their new school and walk around the play set so they can get excited about new friends and recess. And consider enrolling them in a local class, such as swimming lessons or a little league team, so they can meet other children in the area.

Are you ready to get a free moving quote from us, or do you need to buy fort–I mean packing–supplies? Give us a call or text at 615-248-6288 or visit us online to email us!

How to Land the Job: 6 Tips from our Hiring Manager

Interview tips from TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville's hiring manager gives interview tipsEvery March, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK celebrates “Career Move Month”!  Throughout the month, we’ll visit career fairs, sit in on high school lunches, and even host our own hiring sessions to help move our community forward.  Our Hiring Manager, Mel, is even sharing his advice on how to really impress your interviewer.  Whether you’re applying to work here as a mover or you’re looking for an office job, these are the top 6 things Mel looks out for in his interviews:

1. Enthusiasm — Be eager to get the job!  If you aren’t excited about the position in the interview stage, Mel figures you won’t be excited about working the job.  Let your interviewer know what you’re looking forward to doing with the company.  Are you excited about getting paid to work out as a mover?  Or do you like the upbeat atmosphere of our sales office?

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK in Nashville2. Attire — Look the part, like you already have the job.  Mel knows you won’t come to work in uniform if you don’t look clean-cut during your first impression interview.  Dressing appropriately also shows respect for the company and your interviewer, and lets Mel know that you take pride in a neat appearance.

3. Communication — Be part of the conversation.  Make sure you tell your interviewer that you want the job, and don’t let him be the only one talking in the meeting.  Mel says he likes to hear a little bit about your interests outside of work so he can determine what type of person you are, and the character you’ll bring to the job.

4. Posture — Sit up!  Mel assumes you aren’t taking the interview seriously if you slouch in your chair.  You should put your best foot forward in your first meeting with a company manager, and you don’t want him to think a hunched stature is the most you have to offer.

5. Self Awareness — Know what you’re walking into.  Your interviewer will inevitably ask you questions about what you like about the position and the company, and you don’t want to be caught off-guard.  Mel can always tell when applicants have researched the company and know about the moving business before they sit down and talk to him.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK meeting6. Healthy Attitude — Be confident, but not too confident.  Mel is always looking to hire applicants who handle themselves well and know they can do a great job working for us.  If you’re too timid in an interview, your interviewer may wonder if you’ll be able to handle working with customers.  However, acting overly confident and entitled to the position raises a red flag.  How can Mel know you’ll listen to authority figures?

Now you’re ready to apply!  Give us a call or text at 615-248-6288 to set up an interview with Mel!  You can also find our open positions online here.

So You’re Moving to the Green Hills Neighborhood

Things to do in the Green Hills neighborhood of Nashville

We’ve been moving families into, out of, and around Nashville for over two decades now, and we know one of the best parts about moving is finding your new “favorites”!  You’ll need a new coffee shop to frequent each morning, a park where you can take the kids during school holidays, and a fun spot to hang with your friends in the evening.  Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!  Here are some of our favorite places to visit in the Green Hills area of town.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville's recommendations for coffee in Green HillsMorning Java: When you’re ready for your caffeine fix, we recommend The Well Coffeehouse near Lipscomb!  The Well is our favorite because they are a non-profit, and all of their sales benefit organizations which build wells for poor communities around the world.  Another fun spot is The Perch Cafe, which serves sweet or savory crepes alongside your Morning Joe.

Best Playgrounds: Green Hills has some of the best playgrounds in Nashville!  Our favorite is Fannie Mae Dees Park, also known as Dragon Park to most Nashville parents.  Located near Belcourt Theatre, Dragon Park has a giant mosaic-covered dragon sculpture ready for climbing alongside two different play sets.  Green Hills Park is also nearby, with its playground set in the northwest corner.  And if you want something a little different and bad weather-resistant, check out our friends at Gymboree Play & Music!  Your child can join a Play & Music group where they can groove to some tunes while playing on Gymboree’s fun indoor equipment.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville's recommendations for casual dining in Green HillsCasual Eats: When it’s too late for lunch but too early for dinner, or you’re not quite hungry enough for a full meal, where do you go?  Green Hills has lots of fun options, but we think the best one is the Donut Den.  Their donuts are delicious, and the owners like to employ local college students from Belmont, Vanderbilt, and Lipscomb.  We also recommend eating in the Hill Center at Green Hills, where everyone in the family has plenty of options for snacks.  If you want some Mediterranean cuisine, your spouse wants some sweet and sour chicken, and the kids want to fill their pizza fix, everyone can be happy!

Family Fun: Green Hills is such a great neighborhood for your whole family.  On a nice, sunny day, Radnor Lake is the perfect place to take an easy hike.  The Education Center by the entrance is great for teaching your kids about the local forest animals and plants, and you can even bring a picnic lunch to eat by the water.  If you’re looking for some sit-down indoor fun, check out our friends at Brushfire Pottery.  This locally owned pottery studio offers different sculptures, kitchenware, and other household figures for their guests to paint.  Then Brushfire will glaze your painted pottery to seal the color and give it a smooth, glossy finish.  We especially like Brushfire around Mother’s Day and Father’s Day so your kids can create a unique present for their parents!

greenhouseGrown-Up Fun: The Green Hills neighborhood also has plenty to offer when it’s time for a Girls’ Night Out, your next date, or a big group hang.  For the fitness-loving Nashvillian, we always recommend Krank Cycle Studio.  You can get your exercise while cycling to a nice, loud workout playlist.  After you shower up, visit Kendra Scott in the Hill Center!  Kendra Scott is one of our favorite local businesses because they are so community-oriented.  Nearly every week you can go to a KS Shopping Party and have a huge percentage of your purchases benefit a local non-profit organization.  And when the sun goes down, you can visit one of Nashville’s coolest bar scenes at The Greenhouse Bar.  Drink and dine in an actual greenhouse, complete with water features and allergy-friendly menu options.

Staycation Attractions: When you need a quick break from reality, you can vacation without even leaving the Green Hills backyard.  Make reservations at one of Nashville’s most famous restaurants and music venues, The Bluebird Cafe!  This is the spot where the TV show Nashville actually films their Bluebird scenes, and local songwriters get discovered.  You can even get a taste of France at the local Little Gourmand market and cafe.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville's favorite spots in Green HillsUnique Spots: Green Hills contains plenty of gems that you can’t find anywhere else, like Parnassus Books!  This bookstore was opened by a local Nashville author and contains lots of books written by other Tennessee authors.  You may find the owners’ two dogs wandering around the store, and even find yourself inside a storybook castle as you peruse the children’s section!  If you’re a dog owner, you’ll also want to visit Winston Dog, Nashville’s own luxury doggie boutique.  And don’t forget the Green Hills Theatre next to the Mall at Green Hills.  It may seem like an ordinary movie theatre, but this one often features limited-release movies and documentaries which normal movie theatres never get to show.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Nashville is Green Hills' local moverMoving Help: Don’t spend your first two weeks in Green Hills packing, moving, sweating, and unpacking…  Skip straight to the fun part–exploring!  Give us a call or text at 615-248-6288 for your free moving quote, and we’ll finish all the heavy-lifting for you.  You can also get your free estimate started online at our website.
