Taking the Next Steps
The Process of Becoming a Moving Franchise Owner
When you fill out a form, you will receive an email with a link to our free franchise report, a detailed eBook that explains our business model, the industry, and some of the things that make College H.U.N.K.S. Hauling Junk & Moving® unique.
You should also expect a call from us within a couple of business hours. It’s a quick call — usually about five minutes — that gives us a chance to introduce ourselves, learn a little about you, and answer a few questions. From there, we’ll schedule a time to provide you with in-depth information about the brand and to learn about you and see if College H.U.N.K.S.® is a good fit.
1. Fill Out an Application
Once you know more, we’ll ask you to fill out an application for a franchise. It’s not a contract of any kind — it simply allows us to do our due diligence to protect our existing franchise partners and our brand by ensuring you’re a great person to add to the team.
2. Discovery Day
You’ll then be invited to a Discovery Day at our headquarters in Tampa, Florida, where you’ll get to meet the management team, ask more questions, and eat great Cuban food in the historic Latin district we call home. Our Discovery Day is beneficial for both parties: You’ll have the opportunity to get a clean and balanced view of our world and what the day-to-day responsibilities entail, and we will be able to get to know you and provide you with the information you need to make a solid, informed, and pressure-free decision.
3. Franchise Agreement
If all goes well, we’ll offer you a franchise agreement to review. You’ll need to wait two weeks to sign it, which should give you plenty of time to review it with an advisor.
4. Pre-Opening Checklist
Once you sign an agreement, you will receive a pre-opening checklist that is designed to help you hit the ground running in your new business. You will also receive access to training portals, so you can familiarize yourself with our systems before your on-site training session in Tampa. Our franchise support team will work with you to order trucks, obtain insurance, and get any licensing that is required in your area.
5. Training & Preparation
On-site training in Tampa lasts five days and includes a detailed oversight of the systems you will use to manage and grow your business. Once your business is ready to open, expect a visit at your location to assist you. From that point forward, you will receive the ongoing support that has helped our franchise partners continue to grow!
6. Beyond Moving & Junk Removal
Our moving and junk removal franchise currently has over 100 locations nationwide, and we pride ourselves on being a one-stop shop for anyone going through a transition in their life. In addition to our moving and junk removal services, we offer smaller revenue pockets with our sub-categories, including packing and unpacking, donation pickups, and even hourly labor services. These options allow you to offer an extensive list of services for your customers, helping ensure they come back in the future.
