How to Pack and Store Your Holiday Decor

Written By: Laurie Malseed, Franchisee

It doesn’t seem possible that it’s already time to take down all those holiday decorations! But the New Year is quickly approaching, and what better way to start with a clean slate than to properly pack and store away all the Christmas clutter?

I was thrilled when Fox 45 Dayton asked us to do a segment on how to use boxes to store holiday decorations. I, of course, said yes and quickly got to work on coming up with the best ways to organize and protect everything from medium artificial trees to the tiniest ornament.

Moving With Kids

Moving with kids can certainly add to the long list of moving stresses. And I’m not claiming to have all the answers. However, I have moved a time or two (or three) with kids, and twice across country (while pregnant :)). I’m really not sure how we did it to be honest. It’s one of those things that you have to do, so you do. Thankfully, we were always able to use professional movers. Even if it was to just load/unload our rental truck for one of our cross-country adventures!

Hi! I’m Andrew.

Hello there! My name is Andrew Scheibe and I am working as a Marketing Intern at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Moving and Storage in Dayton North, OH. I am currently living and working out of Detroit, MI, where I am also a marketing undergrad at the University of Detroit Mercy. Thanks for taking the time to check this page out!

I’m very excited about this opportunity I have with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, and hope that every word that flows from these fingers is a help to you in some way—whether you are planning a move, interested in the company, or are just looking for some quick tips to make your everyday life on-the-move that much easier.

As for me—I  am your everyday 20-something trying my best to juggle work and school, while being the best brother/son/boyfriend/friend I can possibly be. It gets to be a lot sometimes, but it makes life all the less mundane, and all the more exciting!

I look forward to writing to you across the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® platforms and hope you enjoy and benefit from your time here!

Announcing Our Newest Location!

We’re thrilled to announce that we’re back in Huber Heights!

As some of you may remember, our North Dayton franchise started out on Brandt Pike about a year and a half ago. Seeing fit to add storage to our list of services we decided to move our location to a warehouse in Downtown Dayton this past November. Now that we’re settled Downtown (and loving it!) we’ve decided to open an additional sales office in Huber Heights just down the street from our old location.

Here we are all up and running on the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®/INTERNATIONAL, INC website.

Store Hours for the new location are 2am – 6pm Monday-Friday. The office number listed will be forwarded to our Downtown location between the hours of 8am – 2pm Monday – Saturday.

Basically, if you call any of our phone numbers between the hours of 8am – 6pm Monday – Friday and 8am – 2pm on Saturday you’ll be greeted by a live customer service representative. OR you can always submit an estimate request online 24/7.

Last but not least we can’t forget to mention that the new office is located inside of Fisher & Associates Reality! Thanks for having us guys. We look forward to sharing the space!

This additional location will allow us to better serve our customers and continue to grow the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® brand in North Dayton.

Drop by and pick up some boxes or give us a honk as you cruise down 201. We look forward to serving you!

Love Your Neighbor

For the last month or so we’ve been actively engaged in collecting items for Harvest House Dayton as part of our annual Movers for Moms® program. We’ve done two radio segments and we’ve dropped off collection boxes at Pathway School of Discovery. Along with the boxes we passed out a coloring page as a thank you to the kids for their support.

This morning I decided to print out a few coloring pages for my little ones and talk to them about the importance of helping those in need around us. They are great little listeners when armed with crayons and paper! We talked about all of the things we use everyday at home to take care of ourselves. Later today we’re going to take a trip to the store and I am going to let the shop for items off the list of needs from Harvest House Dayton. It’s always an adventure when you let a 2 and 4 year old push the “kid” carts at Kroger! I’d take pictures of that, but I think I’ll be too busy apologizing to people who get bumped!

Want teach your child to love others? You can start today no matter what age they are! Feel free to download our coloring page here. You can also go here to find the list of items needed by Harvest House Dayton.

Not only will your kids have fun coloring, they’ll be learning, and loving. What more could a Mom ask for?

Movers For Moms Collecting For: Harvest House Dayton

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® locations across the country collect donations for women during the spring and deliver them to local women’s and family shelters on Mother’s Day.

Franchises partner with local shelters, schools and other community organizations to collect goods that will make Mother’s Day special for moms living in shelters.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has women in key leadership roles across the country — some of the most successful franchisees are mothers. Movers for Moms® is a way for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® to appreciate the efforts of mothers everywhere, despite their current circumstances.

In 2012, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® will partner with National Heritage Academies (NHA) schools (K-8) and many other schools throughout the country to facilitate classroom collections. In markets where no NHA schools are present, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® will partner with other charter and private schools, as well as local organizations such as Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® will pick up and deliver the collected items to partnering women’s shelters on or before Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 13.

2011 Results

  • Movers for Moms® expanded into 14 states and had 85 franchise locations support more than 50 shelters across the U.S.
  • Movers for Moms® had a total donation of more than 65,000 gifts in 2011!
  • Movers for Moms® partnered with more than 85 elementary schools, daycare centers and community collection sites across the U.S.

2012 Dayton Ohio Movers For Moms

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®  Moving and Storage is proud to announce Harvest House Dayton as our partnering shelter. All items collected will be donated to Harvest House and their mission to “prepare disadvantaged young women to take on the world with new hope and life skills.”

Please join us in collecting items such as toilet paper, canned goods, laundry detergent, paper towels, towels, wash clothes, and other everyday items for the ladies. Harvest House also organizes a Princess Program were graduates are showered with a true “Princess Day” where they are pampered and presented with a goodie bag. Small feminine type items such as newly purchased lotions, soaps, and lip gloss would help make this day even more special! Last year Movers for Moms® was able to collect over 65,000 donated items nationwide and this year their goal is to break 100,000!

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®  Moving and Storage is committed to collecting as many items for this shelter as possible to support the everyday needs of a fully functioning household. So far Pathway School of Discovery is on board again this year in collecting items for these worthy women. Here are a few shots from our collection last year.

Currently we are looking for more schools, businesses, and churches to become donation sites. If you are interested please contact us asap! We have several PR opportunities lined up (WHIO Radio and WGTZ (92.9 Fly) to name a few) and we’d be happy to mention you as a partner!

Also, if you’d like to donate any of the above listed items you can bring them to 33 Eaker St., Dayton, OH 45402 or call us for the closest donation site to you!
