New York's Premier Moving Company

General Info
It all started some twenty-five years ago when our own John Healey founded a fledgling moving and storage company. Today, that company has grown into the full service moving industry leader, Big John's Moving Inc., a thriving business with the capacity to dispatch fully insured crews, day and night, to residences, offices, factories and warehouses.These crews utilize state-of-the-art trucks and material handling equipment to safely transport and deliver items as diverse as furniture, machinery, fine art objects and pianos. And to make your moving experience as comfortable as possible Big John's maintains a separate department offering boxes, wardrobes and moving supplies. Big John and his handpicked and personally trained crews have not forgotten that the company has grown, and will continue to grow, not only because it has kept up with the times, but because it offers the same kind of personal service that it started with. John Healey personally supervises all of the crews to make certain that they adhere to the high standards he has set and he follows up by calling clients to make sure they are totally satisfied.

I used Big John's for a move within NYC. Very professional! And the office staff is also helpful and professional. Clean trucks, polite crew and the estimate was spotted on!

highly recommend

Used this company to move me out of a fifth floor walk up and can attest to the following:

** Nothing was damaged in the move
** The original quote I received was completely accurate except that the guys finished a little earlier than expected
** The team of workers was organized, efficient, professional and had good attitudes

I will certainly use them for my next move!

Breaks the stereotype of shady movers

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.

SO helpful!

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!

smooth, stress-free move

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 was well worth it!
