The Current State Of The Junk Removal Franchise And Moving Franchise Industry

November 9, 2016

Why now more than ever is the ideal time to start a College Hunks Hauling Junk & Moving franchise

Junk hauling and moving is always in demand, leading some to call it the perfect evergreen business. So, if you are considering starting a College Hunks Hauling Junk & Moving franchise, it’s always a great time. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that Americans move an average of 11.4 times during their lifetimes, spending an average of $1,148 to move a four-bedroom home within the same city.

The overall moving industry has become an estimated $10 billion business annually, with over 7,000 moving companies around the country. Many of these businesses are small, family-owned operations, employing a few untrained guys in an old truck. This kind of fragmentation within the industry represents a huge opportunity for a professional and trusted brand like College Hunks to seize market share with its brand recognition and reputation for honest service.

Recession and technology-proof

There are a great many situations that would cause a family to move, no matter the economic climate. People may be on the move due to job opportunities, job losses, upgrading their home, downsizing their home or moving due to age-related issues. As we say, Every Move Matters. What we do cannot be replaced by a machine or an app, or even outsourced to another country. There will always be demand for professional, dependable College Hunks who will carefully pack and move a client’s most precious belongings as if they were their own.
