Two Men and a Truck has locations in 39 states and four countries. It has completed roughly five million moves. It also donates about two and a half million dollars in moving services annually.Sheets will share the Two Men and a Truck story and field questions Thursday evening at a meeting of Startup Grind Lansing, the global start-up community. That’ll be at East Lansing’s Technology Innovation Center at 6 p.m.
