We were combining households and had to have the services of a manned van. We followed a pal’s recommendation and signed up with Big John’s.
We really hit it right, they were absolutely perfect. Brian, Ben, Kirk, and Acosta were cheerful, polite, and professional throughout, starting with going down a flight of narrow stairs and ending in a 40-floor building. Nothing broken or was even scratched.

Everything was put just where we wanted it, plus asking ‘Is there anything more we can do?’ was a fantastic combination of old-fashioned efficiency and charm.

Due to a mix of good weather, lucky parking, and the crew’s skill, the whole move came in ahead of schedule and the final amount was 38 percent lower than the original estimate. How often does that happen?
