Quick Guide: Packing

Oh the joys of moving! TWO MEN Atlanta has been in the neighborhood for over 14 years. Our staff understands how daunting move prep can be. We’ve got a few tips on a smooth pack:

  1. Label everything. We mean everything.
  2. Color coordinate all rooms and boxes in advance. Printables, colored duck tape or markers work wonders.
  3. Have an extra set of keys made for a loved one. Fear no more, an extra key is only a call away.
  4. Hire professionals. TWO MEN Atlanta packs and unpacks all day, everyday! Our packers are full-trained to best care for your belongings.
  5. Keep a trusted adult onsite. Neighbors, deliveries, move teams, UberEats, family friends are all expected to visit your home while packing. Our movers will communicate thoroughly, but a trusted loved one is always a good option.
  6. Sharpies are crucial. Expo markers, art supplies and the usual suspects laying around the kitchen may wipe off between locations. Sharpies stay on boxes, y’all!

Event Prep: Like a Boss

TWO MEN Atlanta is proud to partner with local non-profits, businesses and community members during their relocation process. Oftentimes, businesses reach out to us to help set-up, break down or pull items to the right location. Get more fun out of your event by following these key event rules:

  1. Plan months in advance. Better safe than sorry is an understatement. Making sure vendors, event staff, tent companies, set up and breakdown are all scheduled is a good first step.
  2. Have 2-3 point persons. Volunteers, vendors, sponsors, attendees and event staff (etc.) will all have questions and concerns throughout your event. Streamline this by making sure multiple people are available for questions/concerns.
  3. Start walky-talky mode during set-up. Before the masses arrive, get your communication lines going. If not everyone has walky, make sure everyone has an external battery (and cell charging cord) for their phone. 
  4. Bring a ridiculous amount of water. Bet on much less free time than you’re everyday life allows.
  5. Ask for help. Volunteers from local 501c3s, schools or college students looking for extra credit can be a huge weight off your team’s shoulders. Having designated runners, check-in stations and vendor unload/load times are a huge plus with extra volunteers.

Tips for Atlanta’s Commute

Atlanta is such a car-cultured community. We spend a ridiculous amount of time frustrated with traffic or the never-ending construction on our many highways/interstates. Public and private K-12 students are coming back next week, and literally nothing will change. Here’s a few ways TWO MEN Atlanta’s staff deals with our commute:


-music on alternative outlets

-ride sharing

-making new friends on MARTA


-people watching*

-windows down, enjoying the breeze

Does Moving Have An Off-Season?

Football season is around the corner! Our Atlanta love for the SEC might be all over the place but is totally a religion. In the spirit of football, our staff wanted to answer a few questions from our Facebook followers:

Question: Does TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Marietta have cheaper rates on it’s slower days?

Answer: Truthfully, there is no slow season for moving. Our professionally trained, licensed, bonded and insured movers are always on-the-go. For cheaper rates, see if weekdays are discounted.

Question: What’s the best time to move?

Answer: When you and yours are most prepared. Grabbing a few in-home estimates to compare and weighing your price options is a great start.

Question: How can I cut my moving costs?

Answer: Ask for a packing supply or box bundle. Your favorite realtor, loved one or friend who’s in the moving business might have the hook up. Always, always, always ask for clean, fresh boxes to avoid an infestation. 

Question: Why should I ask for a flat rate?

Answer: Moving costs can be rough. Keep surprises away from move day by asking, ‘is that the best you can do? What’s your flat rate based on my itemized list?’

Question: Who will be my primary contact for moving day?

Answer: You’ll likely speak to a customer service rep, in-home estimator, operations assistant and operations manager before even meeting your move team. Decide which personality you like best and ask to have their direct line on file for move day. Otherwise, each branch of TWO MEN Atlanta will help!

Question: If I want to move myself, why would I need a moving company?

Answer: Time is a dear resource. If moving is something you can physically handle, carving out time might be the hardest part. TWO MEN Atlanta comes into play in your moving experience by releasing the hassle, time-suck and accountability away from your friends and family who begrudgingly agreed to help.

Question: Why should I pack in advance?

Answer: To speed up your setting-in process at the new place. Packing on move day is for the birds! Check out our Pinterest organization, cardboard recycling and move day boards for a cheat sheet.
