With a commitment to continually exceeding customer’s expectations, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® – CANADA is expanding its services to include junk removal.

Two Canadian franchisees (Kitchener-Cambridge-Waterloo and St. Catharines-Niagara Region) are the first to pilot this program.

Owner/ President of the award-winning Kitchener/Cambridge/Waterloo franchise, Justin Prittie said, “The decision to haul junk is a logical one. Consumers planning a move inevitably have to dispose of stuff. By including this service, we can offer a single solution from beginning to end.”

According to Chuck Resnick, Vice-President of Marketing and Operations for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® – CANADA, “In addition to providing our customers with value-added services, adding junk removal to our service menu becomes a sound business move. Junk removal and moving are complimentary services, providing a convenient, one-stop-shop solution.”

Known internationally as the Movers Who Care®, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK’s junk removal services are environmentally friendly. Said St. Catharines-Niagara Region franchisee Cotie Drinkwater, “We recycle, repurpose, reuse, and donate as much of the junk as we can, so we avoid taking items to the dump. “We save residential and business clients time and hassle. The junk removal service can be part of a move, or a separate service.”

The new junk removal program covers furniture, garage items, appliance and mattress disposal, hot tub removal, exercise equipment, seasonal items such as patio furnishings, office remodels, and old unwanted electronics and construction debris. Exceptions include hazardous materials such as propane tanks, gasoline, paint, chemicals, motor oil, biological or medical waste, and firearms.

“Whether consumers are cleaning out their garage, attic, shed or basement,” Resnick added, “our professionally-trained junk removal team knows what’s required to get the job done right.”

Committed to serving the greater community, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK – CANADA trucks are equipped with a MIKEY defibrillator, and all franchisees, their drivers and staff are trained in their use and CPR. Founded in 2003, The Mikey Network is a charitable organization that has placed more than 2,500 of these public-access defibrillators. To date, at least 43 lives have been saved because a MIKEY was on hand.
