Moving franchise opportunities

From starting a man with a van business to owning a fleet of removal lorries, there is certainly a living to be made from helping people transport their belongings about. A survey by a price comparison site found that UK homeowners with an average three-bed property pay around £1,192.67 for removal services. Though property sales have slowed down in recent times, this is still a huge market. There are an average 90,000 to 100,000 property transactions each month in the UK. Plus, enterprising moving companies have found new uses for their vehicles, including commercial contracts to remove waste, transport equipment and fulfil deliveries.

The one thing that can be hard to navigate is successful business management when you want to be out on the road as much as possible. This is when a moving franchise can be vital.

Whats a moving franchise?

Companies who have carved a successful share of the moving industry sometimes give new business start-ups a helping hand. It means you still get to be your own boss, but they provide working systems, guidance and technical help such as websites. You would share their established branding too, which gets you recognised and respected from day one. They often pool referrals too.

Crucially in this sector, a franchise helps with insurance and legal compliance, as well as training.

Moving franchise examples

Among the companies willing to share their business model with franchisees is Two Men and A Truck, which looks after a network of 300 ventures across North America and the UK. The Removal Team specialises in office relocations but also offers home moves and storage services. Fantastic Removals is another supportive network of entrepreneurs. A relatively smaller franchise community is being established by Devon Transport Limited under Sam the Vanman branding. These are just a few examples.
