LANSING, Mich., June 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On the heels of signing their 300th franchise location, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® reached another impressive milestone by completing their five millionth move Thursday, June 19, 2014.
Sponsored by company vendor, TSO Mobile, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® celebrated this exciting moment in Houston with a free move and neighborhood breakfast send-off for the family. Multi-unit franchisees Steve and Claudia Ziara and the entire franchise staff joined in to make the move memorable for Hung and Ly Tonthat.

Along with having strong arms and legs, the people of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® have big hearts, they look out for one another and help out a fellow employee or customer in a heartbeat."
The Tonthats used TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® the last time they relocated, and knew they would receive exceptional service a second time around. However, this time, they were able to take part in a piece of company history.
