The UK and Ireland master franchise for removals business Two Men and a Truck has been put on the market by its Irish owners, after they decided to concentrate on their core businesses.
The 18-year-old franchise has been operating in Dublin for around five years, but owners NDMG Holdings have now decided it’s not a core business and have put the operation on the market for £550,000, to include the master franchise fee and assets. NDMG Holdings' core businesses are storage and document handling.
“The buyer [of Two Men and a Truck] will get a business which already has a proven working model for the UK, along with the results of extensive research,” a spokesman for the company.
“The growing population of the UK and a huge rise in the rental market means increased moving business opportunities for a distinctive brand associated with a caring attitude towards customers and the community."
Almost 2.5 million people move house or office in the UK every year, a Royal Mail survey has shown, and this figure is steadily rising as one-person households rise to 32pc of the total market, increasing the demand for housing.
“We have a bank of around 800 people who have enquired about buying Two Men And A Truck franchises in the UK and we fully expect the master franchisee to be able to open a large number of depots over the next few years," the spokesman said
