Moving Franchise versus Home Improvement Franchise and Which Is the Best

Moving Franchise versus Home Improvement Franchise and Which Is the Best   

The moving industry is big business. According to MoveBuddha, a website that compares moving companies, there are more than 7,000 different moving companies in the U.S. operating about 14,000 different locations. It adds up to an $18 billion industry.

The typically low startup costs of owning a moving franchise make it an attractive investment. You don’t need a brick-and-mortar location as it’s easy to operate the business out of your home. You can start small, with a single truck and a couple of employees. Getting on board with a well-respected brand will help you build your customer base, as people choose to do business with companies whose names are familiar. You don’t need any experience to do the job, although it is physically demanding if you do some of the work yourself rather than simply supervising your employees.


The Drawbacks of Owning a Moving Franchise

However, the profit potential and ease of entry into the industry means you’ll probably face steep competition within your community. Owning a moving franchise means you are at the mercy of the housing market. When the market slows, fewer people move, meaning less business to go around.


Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, people have begun moving less. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 27.1 million Americans (8.4%) moved in 2021. That’s a decrease from 2020, when 29.8 million people (9.3%) moved, and 2019 when 31.4 million people (9.8%) moved.


Also, in addition to the franchise fee, your startup costs will need to cover the purchase or lease of moving vans or trucks as well as insurance.

The Benefits of a Home Improvement Franchise

Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, when people began spending more time at home, the home renovation market has seen an increase in demand. People want to upgrade their living spaces to make them larger, more comfortable, and more beautiful. This means it’s a great time to buy a home improvement franchise.

Home Franchise Concepts (HFC), a proven leader in the industry, offers eight different types of home improvement franchises for sale. These award-winning home service brands provide lucrative earning potential and a flexible work schedule as your own boss. Plus, HFC offers franchisees the benefit of superior training programs, effective national and local marketing strategies, and complete operational support.

Concrete Craft is part of the HFC family of brands. We have seen a high demand for our services.  Concrete Craft specializes in stamped concrete, stained concrete, and decorative concrete overlay services for both residential and commercial properties.


We have developed a proprietary process that allows us to use concrete to mimic more expensive surfaces such as stone, brick, tile, or even wood, allowing homeowners to get the look they want at a much lower cost.

One of the benefits of owning a Concrete Craft is limited competition. We are the only national decorative concrete franchise company. There are still a lot of new territories available in the U.S. and Canada, each one consisting of 100,000 single-family homes.
