Across the UK, nearly 10% of population moves home every year – which means some six million families need help moving house at any one time, and this is not even accounting for the millions of businesses that annually change their premises too.
In short, the size of the UK removal market is huge, and through a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® franchise you’re extremely well placed to benefit from this yearly movement of people, companies and their possessions. Within this context, each franchise territory is strategically selected to ensure a large amount of potential business is available in each area.
Scale your moving business
Start with just three trucks and scale up your business as you increase your income – then there’s also the potential to further boost growth by moving into other revenue streams including sales and lettings moves, business removals and storage.
However you decide to grow – because this will be your business and you’ll be the boss – our franchise team will be on hand to support you every step of the way.
With the UK removals industry expected to be worth nearly £1 billion in 2015, our new franchise owners are always excited to learn just what a scalable, flexible and multi-channel business opportunity this is.
Our core business of residential removals – which in the UK accounts for some 6 million people a year – but there are also multiple revenue streams you can add onto this in order to grow your sales.
First off there’s the commercial removals market, a growing segment that includes the letting’s and rental industry of nearly 4 million tenants. Plus there are those 5 million businesses that at some time require a change of premises. This is definitely a market ripe for expansion using the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® franchise model.
Secondly, there are all those social housing and local government removal contracts up for tender. With over 3.8 million social housing tenants in the UK, there is sure to be an on-going requirement for moving services within this sector too.
Thirdly, we haven’t yet considered the massive growth of the self-storage market across Great Britain. Now worth an estimated £355 million, and with over quarter of a million people and businesses regularly using such facilities to store possessions, stock, equipment and furniture – there is a huge opportunity here for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Franchise Owners to deliver moving solutions in and out of such storage units.
The final market sector that offers exciting potential to our franchise owners – is that of niche removal services. Classic cars, expensive rare antiques, large items of furniture and big musical instruments such as pianos and harps, all fall into this category. Our highly flexible business model will help you open a lucrative new revenue stream in this sector too.
