Excellent movers. I've moved many more times than anyone should have to in the last 12 years, and I've been dissatisfied (to put it kindly) with every single moving company I've used. Except for Big John's. Before our move from Manhattan

Used this company to move me out of a fifth floor walk up and can attest to the following:\n\n** Nothing was damaged in the move\n** The original quote I received was completely accurate except that the guys finished a little earlier than expected\n** The team of workers was organized, efficient, professional and had good attitudes\n\nI will certainly use them for my next move!

The best thing about these guys is they moved my stuff from NYC to Texas themselves. They didn't contract out to some other company to get it done for them. The same guy who picked up and packed my stuff in Manahattan was there in Houston to move it in. There was a misunderstanding with my storage in between but when it came down to it, these guys showed they are different from the bait and switch moving company stereotype and made sure I was happy.

Pros: Moved everything themselves from NYC to Houston

Cons: Took a while for them to get my fianl bill to me

I recently stopped in Big John's to pick up boxes and they were so helpful! I had no idea what types of boxes or the number of boxes I was going to need for my move, they guided me through the process and got me set up with everything that I was going to need for my move. I wished so bad that I heard about them beforehand so they could have completed my move! Next time!

I hate moving more than anything. I called at least 20 movers to get estimates. I booked a less expensive mover who I had a problem with 2 days before my move and called Big Johns in a panic to help me out. They took my reservation without a deposit, on good faith, and showed up at exactly 9am. They got my belongings out my 4th floor walk-up apartment with such ease...don't think any item touched a wall. The crew worked like clockwork. For a stress-free move, go with Big Johns...it was well worth it!

Pros: on time, flexible, accommodating, professional

Cons: none!

I was quoted one rate...they charged me another.....they over charged me by a lot, but if you refuse to pay them, they have your furnishings. They use excess materials so they can charge you more. moving in NYC is tough but you should be able to find better movers than these.

They will show up and get the job done, at a cost of time and money. Put your frustrations aside - there really aren't any 'great' movers in NYC - and just be glad you are in the process already. Make sure you visit the ATM beforehand and take out a few hundred more than you think you need and you'll be fine
