Two Men and a Truck moves to Cummings Properties' 260-A Fordham Road and gives back to community

Wilmington, MA After being in business for less than a year, Two Men and a Truck had outgrown its Woburn space. It packed up and moved to Cummings Properties’ 260-A Fordham Rd. location last fall.

Two Men and a Truck and Cummings Properties share a common core value: to give back in the communities where employees live and work, according to account manager Shannon Haines.

Living up to its company tagline, “Movers Who Care,” Two Men and a Truck has partnered with many local nonprofits since arriving in Mass.

One day a month, the company prepares and delivers meals for Rosie’s Place in Boston. A few times a month, Two Men and a Truck teams assist Mission of Deeds in Reading in delivering donated furniture. In addition, locations across the country partner with local shelters, schools, and other community organizations on Movers for Moms, a program that collects goods that will make Mother’s Day special for women living in shelters.

“We have been growing quickly, and we strive to be leaders in our industry as well as our community,” said franchise owner Brian Stern. “We have a unique set of tools to which many organizations need access.”

“Fordham Road’s convenience to routes I-95/128 and I-93 and its proximity to Boston and Logan Airport make it a desirable spot for Two Men and a Truck’s headquarters,” said Haines.

With the help of Laudy Soifer of MetroWest Commercial Real Estate, Two Men and a Truck chose Fordham Road for its headquarters last year. The Greater Boston franchise of the national moving company is now settled in its fully renovated 7,000-square-foot open office and recently celebrated its one-year anniversary.

“We love our new location. We have ample room now to execute a training program for our growing team and to expand in the future,” said Stern.

Two Men and a Truck is the largest franchised moving company in the United States with more than 300 locations and 2,100 trucks in operation. Each location is independently owned and operated.

Nearly all of Cummings Properties’ buildings are owned by and operated for the benefit of Cummings Foundation. Cummings Properties manages 10 million square feet of prime space, including offices, healthcare facilities, laboratories, retail storefronts, warehouses, executive suites, and more. With a portfolio of this size and variety across 10 suburban Boston communities, the firm can meet almost any commercial real estate need from 150 square feet to 300,000 s/f.
