Case Study: Barry Collins, Watford
TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has enabled Barry Collins to fulfil his dream of running his own business. Having previously worked hard for large corporations, including BOC, Talk Talk and BT, Barry Collins had gained a wealth of experience and enjoyed the rewards that the corporate world had to offer. However he always dreamed of running his own business and so embraced the opportunity to invest in the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Watford territory when it came his way.
Barry explains: “I’d worked for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® for a year when the opportunity to own a territory came up. Having been to the USA, I’d got to know the system and the ethos of the company well and had no hesitation in investing in the business and running my own territory.” Since then he hasn’t looked back. The Watford territory currently has three trucks of varying capacity and the ability to hire more in the summer during busy periods, but Barry is planning to expand the business by introducing more trucks and a bigger team.
He says: “My previous experience of managing a fleet of trucks for BOC and gaining a transport management qualification has helped me get the business off to a great start. I enjoy the variety of managing the business and feel confident handling the different challenges that come with each move. It’s also hugely rewarding to surprise people with how good we are, when we finish a move we know they’ll use us again and recommend us.”
The core values of TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® are a strong thread running through all aspects of the company. Barry comments: “The ethos of the company not only helps us run our business to the highest standards, but the integrity it promotes filters through into our personal lives and gives us all a real grounding. We treat people’s possessions as if they are our own and do business in an ethical way so our customers trust us.”
Outside of work Barry plays golf, which he’s found useful from a business networking perspective, and can often be found acting as a taxi driver to his 10 year old daughter at the weekends.
His recommendation to anyone considering investing in TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® is to research the demographics of the territory you’re looking at and make sure you’re confident that the market is right for you and your experience.
