The professional movers of Two Men and a Truck Metairie follow what they term "the grandma rule"—that is, they treat every customer the way they'd want their own grandmother to be treated. Two high-school-aged brothers and their resourceful mom started the company in the early 1980s with little more than a pickup truck to ferry their clients' possessions. Since then, the startup has grown into an enterprise with more than 1,200 trucks. The founders of the outfit's New Orleans branch underwent two weeks of intensive training in Lansing where they learned to maneuver, wrap, and load items as hefty as a grand piano or as delicate as a china cabinet filled with emotions. The team also unpacks possessions at new locations and supplies moving boxes and packing supplies.
Since 2006, the landscaping pros of Gardens of Enchantment have brought their commercial and residential clients’ landscaping visions to life through a variety of services. The landscapers fertilize, aerate, and weed lawns, of course, but they also provide full landscaping makeovers.

In 1910, Harry Offner opened his first hardware shop on South Rampart Street in downtown New Orleans, setting the foundation for a local network of three retail stores with more than 27,000 items in stock and 90,000 more available through catalogs or the Ace Hardware website. Like a treasured heirloom or the gene for double-jointed elbows, the business has passed through three generations as Harry's grandkids currently mind the store to help homeowners and handy folks find cleaning and painting supplies, lawn-care implements, housewares, and tools from well-known brands. The knowledgeable staff also assists shoppers with a variety of services, from cutting keys and threading pipes to minor household repair jobs performed by licensed and insured handymen.
