Meet Sally Mink, Marketing Manager for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Brentwood

DSCN2917So it recently occurred to us, the we have highlighted almost everyone in the franchise except for the one person that does the actual highlighting, Sally, the marketing manager for the franchise here in Brentwood-Franklin.

Sally has been with the franchise for almost 2 years as the marketing manager.  Originally from the Middle Tennessee area, she moved to Knoxville to acquire a degree in marketing at the University of Tennessee. With strong roots to the Nashville area, Sally came back here to oversee anything and everything to do with TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® marketing.  Sally is incredibly active in the community, holding several different committee positions for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®.

Sally’s favorite thing about working for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is the generosity in giving back to the community.  In 2014, the Brentwood franchise donated over $27000 in charity hours.  Sally has always had a passion for helping people in need, and feels that is an amazing thing to be able to give back to others as part of her everyday job.  This was one of the main reasons she chose to work for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®.

For those looking to go into a marketing position,  the best advice Sally can give is to be willing to learn in the field.  There is only so much you can learn in the classroom and many things have to twisted to work in your specific situation.  Never think you know enough. The marketing world is always changing, and you have to learn to adapt with it.

Sally was actually recognized this week at the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK National Annual Meeting for her hard work and strong performance in her field.  We love having Sally as part of our team and excited for her to grow within the company!

Will you be my valentine……..and move in with me?

With Valentine’s Day this weekend, love is at every turn you make. Some give roses, some give chocolates, and some even give engagement rings.  With all the excitement of the lovey dovey holiday, many couples begin to start discussing their future with one another.  This day and time many couples begin cohabiting before the big day.

Before you start questioning whose couch stays or goes, we have a little advise to those about to move in with their significant other.

  • Out with the old and in with the new. Before move day, take an inventory of everything the two of you have, and make a list of things you want to keep and what you can get rid of. Chances are you will have duplicates of some items, and taking inventory will prevent you from moving unwanted duplicates. In addition to avoiding duplicates, an inventory exercise prevents you from moving into a cluttered new home.
  • If you are packing your own stuff, organize and re-organize. Pack your boxes with similar items from the same room. If you have small hardware from furniture or decorative pieces, put them in zip lock bags and label them. Baggies keep the small, easy to lose items kept together in one place. Also, labeling and color coding your boxes will make the move much smoother. Moving as newlyweds is an exciting time, you don’t want to cause unneeded frustration with your significant because you can’t find certain items.
  • If you are moving to a new area, consider renting before buying. By renting, you are not committing to anything right away, and it allows you and your significant other to get to know the area, ensuring you will like your new town before becoming a permanent resident. Keep in mind, if you’re moving from an apartment, or condensing into one apartment with your spouse, our move crews are familiar with apartment complex rules and regulations, such as parking arrangements and service elevators in high rise buildings. Let us do the heavy lifting up and down those pesky flights of stairs or through those narrow hallways.
  • If you are ordering household items have these items shipped to OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAyour new home several days after you move in. This will avoid moving the items twice if they arrive before your move day and will save you from chaos if they are sent to your new home on the day of the move.
  • Have a decor in mind so you can get on top of your interior decorating right after you move in. However, don’t get too stuck on a design. Be open to ideas and be willing to work with your partner to make each room decorated with a blend of both styles. Remember, the key to a happy relationship is compromise!
  • Most importantly, leave the actual moving to the professionals. Hire a moving company. Not only will this save you the heartache of finding your new china piece dining set in a shattered mess because it wasn’t packed properly, but it will save you from a heated argument with your significant other over who packed that box. This is a busy period in your life, let us help make your move a fun transition in your new lives together. Look for companies seen frequently within your community. This will illustrate the company is a credible organization with a strong reputation.

Now go, begin this next chapter of your life. Enjoy your new, clutter-free, perfectly decorated, and professionally moved new home.

We hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Quick and fast ways to put up Christmas Decorations

1477471_421312767998834_1385636088_nIf you are like me, you may be sitting around dreading to take down and sort all of your Christmas decorations.  I have come up with a few quick ideas to help you get those decorations down and organized for next year in no time, and all of these items can be purchased at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®!

1.  Egg carton for ornaments:  For all of those small antique ornaments with no boxes.  Just recycle an empty egg carton and stick each ornament in the slots.  This protects the ornaments and it makes thins easier to stack.

2.  Cardboard piece for lights:  Cut off any size piece of cardboard and wrap the lights around it.  When you are done, secure by plugging the ends together.  This holds them together and keeps you from have a balled up mess to untangle next year.

3.  Bubble Wrap:  All that bubble wrap from fragile Christmas presents, KEEP IT! It is great and easy to re-use all that bubble wrap on your fragile items.

4.  Non-printed packing paper:  If you use Christmas dishes, don’t make the mistake of using printed newspaper to wrap them up.  This will leave ink marks on your dishes.  Always use blank packing paper.

5. Wardrobe boxes:  Wardrobe boxes are great for storing wreaths, ribbons, or anything that you don’t want crushed in a box.  The bar detaches so it makes it easy to just slide everything on there.  You can also slide smaller item in the bottom of the box.

6.  Dish pack for ornaments:  Our dish pack makes a great organized storing method for larger ornaments.  It is easy to just drop each ornament into its individual spot and keeps them nice and safe throughout the year!

7.  Shrink wrap yours trees: If you have the room in storage, why not just leave your tree standing. Using shrink wrap, you can wrap your tree up, so it is protected and not take up much room.  This makes it so easy for next year.  You cut off the shrink wrap and your tree is ready for decorating!

I hope these tips help make your holiday pack up stress free! For more creative ideas, follow us on Pinterest!
