2 College Brothers Story

Wade Swikle’s journey to founding 2 College Brothers began with a childhood spent moving frequently due to his parents’ love for exploring new neighborhoods. This exposure to the moving process planted a seed in his mind. Fast forward to 2009, during a recession, Wade, a college baseball player, struggled to find work. He turned to Craigslist and capitalized on his athleticism to offer moving services, realizing people were keen to hire college athletes.

Over the next few years, Wade honed his skills in the moving industry, working freelance and briefly for a Gainesville moving company. As graduation approached, his entrepreneurial spirit led him to enroll in a Master’s program focused on entrepreneurship. Inspired by his experience in the moving business, he decided to start his own company.

Seeing a 2 College Brothers truck was a sign for Wade. He quickly researched how to start a moving company and launched Smarter Moving Solutions. Competition with the original 2 College Brothers ensued until they offered to sell their company to Wade. With his brother’s financial support, he seized the opportunity and became the new owner of 2 College Brothers.

Over the years, Wade has expanded the business remarkably, opening a second location in Tampa and eventually franchising. In 2023, the first franchise was sold, and since then, the company has continued to grow, with a franchise in San Antonio and plans for further expansion nationwide.

Since 2010, 2 College Brothers has serviced over 15,000 moves and generated over 1,700 5-star Google reviews. We service between 100-200 clients each month and around 2,000 people every year. Across our three locations, we have 18 trucks and over 70 employees and have hired over 1,000 team members over the years.
