FR Review:
Client’s say that Big John’s key advantage is its crew—the movers are “friendlier, smarter and more helpful” than the competition. The firm, founded in the 80s by John Healey, has a fleet of modern trucks and two storage facilities to assist with both local and long distance moves. However, the highest praise is reserved for the people, not the equipment, with references saying that the movers are patient, compassionate, and come equipped with a sense of humor to reassure customers through moving day jitters. For those in need of additional moving supplies, the company has a showroom displaying all types of boxes which they will happily deliver to your door, though “at a premium,” sources say. While Big John’s falls near the higher end of the price scale, clients tell us that the estimate is always accurate—no hidden charges. Also, the peace of mind that comes from working with a reliable firm is “priceless.”

Representative Client Comments:
“They took the monumental nightmare of moving and made it bearable.” “Everything was handled with care and arrived in good condition.” “The quoting process was simple and turned out to be an astonishingly accurate estimate.” “They delivered with no surprises even when they realized that my move was more complicated than they'd originally thought because of extra stairs on both ends. They still honored the original quote despite having to add two additional workers to the team.” “The whole process was so easy and honestly even a little cheaper than I expected.” “Big John’s was the one company that I worked with during my move that really came through. They came highly recommended and I can see why.”

Project Description & Comments:
Big John's gave me a highly compeitive quote, and they flawless delivered with no suprises even when they realzied that my move was more complicated than orginally thought because of extra stairs on both ends to get to the service elevator. They still still honored the orignial quote despite having to add two additional workers to the team to get me into may apartment by the Coop's deadline of 5 p.m. Each guy on the team was focused and worked hard throughout the day.

Project Description & Comments:
I moved from a 6 floor walk-up in a dicey neighborhood in Manhattan and I have some BIG furniture. Big John's quote was reasonable--so reasonable that I had a lot of extra cash on hand as I thought it would be a few hundred more. Instead it was right on the money, not one cent more. The movers had a very big and unpleasant job to do moving my stuff from my old place and they did if fast, they did it well and they were really nice guys. Big John's was the one company that I worked with during my move that really came through. They came highly recommended and I can see why.

Project Description & Comments:
I moved with Big John's in February 2011. The quoting process was simple and turned out to be an astonishingly accurate estimate. The crew, led by Xavier, were friendly, helpful, patient and very efficient. The whole process was so easy and honestly even a little cheaper than I expected. This company had been recommended to me by a couple of friends, and I would not hesitate to recommend Big John's to others.
