He took his business on full time and he has never looked back. “We’re not literally one guy with one truck any more”; over the years, Chris Barry has assembled a team of experienced movers, all with a minimum of several years’ moving experience.

These guys perform miracles. They jigsawed everything we had into a portable storage pod! They were quick, friendly, and great to work with. They helped us dismantle furniture to get more space! We will definitely use again!

Worst company ever. where to begin. I confirmed my move twice. Once a few days before and once yesterday. I tried to call them at 8am (my window was 8-10) and their phones wouldn't let my number call. I actually called 15+ times. After two hours I was able to get through on my work phone. After an hour of round and round the owner TEXTED me (three hours after our move time) saying he wasn't coming at all. Great. Then when I said I expect a complimentary move he laughed at me for a while. The owner when he finally called (I had to harass him over text message to call) didn't tell me he was the owner. I said "hello?" And he said "hi this is chris" I said "who are you to the company?" He was so unprofessional. He should have said "Hello this is Chris the owner of Barry's Best Moving" and that cal should have come at 8am. Not by text at 11am. The day we move. Worst company ever. Please Please if you need to move on a specific date do not use this company. It will not go well. I ended up contacting My Guys moving and then came at 8am on the dot the next day. Fast professional and friendly. Couldn’t recommend them more!!! Ask for Sim!!! I did receive my deposit back on a timely manner.

I have used Barry's Best Movers twice and both times received the highest quality service. I previously worked in this business and I know that the movers are the best I've seen; they are professional, polite and accommodating. My second move was a three floor townhouse with a spiral staircase and some of the heaviest pieces you could imagine. It was all moved smoothly without damage to the house or the furniture. I highly recommend.

I couldn’t have been happier with Barry’s. It was easy to book, their customer service was responsive and nice, and the movers were terrific. I don’t want to move anytime soon but would use them again in a heartbeat and recommend them to anyone.

Love using Barry's Best Movers. This is our third time moving items within our home among different floors and removal of items no longer needed. Thanks Barry's!
- lynn alberti

★★★★★
We needed two very large heavy pieces of furniture moved with very short notice. Barry’s Best Movers responded to my inquiry on a Sunday and had two guys here to help before 10:00am the next day. They were professional, quick and very careful! Highly recommend them and would definitely use them again!

I recently hired Chris and his crew (Timmy and Gary) to move my mother's many, many things into several of those PODs type containers for a cross country move to California. Man oh man, were we pleased with his work! I found him off of the good reviews from Yelp, but you're never really sure what you're going to get, are ya? Well, Chris showed up right on time with his guys and went straight to work. He was worried we wouldn't get all mom's things into the containers I had ordered, but was determined to try. For six hours he and his guys moved her heavy and nice things up and down three flights of stairs in her townhouse and they did it professionally, with great care and a smile on their faces. Maybe it was the Stevie Wonder I was playing for them, but they were all pro, fun and professional the entire time. This was a stressful move, but Chris made the laborious part almost fun. I'd recommend him and his team to anyone. Small businesses are the best...Chris takes his very seriously and knows his stuff and is clearly proud of the work he does. He should be! When the movers closed the door on the final container, we all cheered and Chris now has a nice picture of me, mom and one of our friends relaxing with a glass of wine - as we were truly satisfied customers!

Hello All, I had a confirmed job with 1 Guy 1 Truck 1 Trailer, 112 Oakgrove Rd, Sterling, VA 20166. This moving company cancelled on me two hours before the move. They cancelled via text from 703-622-3061. Make no mistake, this company put me in a very awkward situation. Below is the text I received. They did not call or respond back to me after this text. "Hey... I can't make it today" 9:09 AM (the move was scheduled for 11:00AM) Please be careful of this company. They are not reliable and may drop you at the last second.

My partner and I used Chris and team for a recent move from Washington DC to NYC. They were amazing- very timely and careful! The cost was also reasonable compared to other quotes that we had received. I would use them again, especially given all of the moving scams out there- its good to have someone you can trust!

I used 1 Guy,1Truck,1Trailer to move a baby grand piano from Vienna,VA to Front Royal,VA. I called Chris Barry, the owner, to schedule the move and he was able to do it the next day. He arrived on time , with two extra crew, and skillfully packed the piano and put it in his trailer. He arrived in Front Royal on time and unloaded the piano and reassembled everything correctly. He and his crew were polite, professional, reasonable, timely and hard working. I would not hesitate to recommend them to someone who was looking for a reliable mover. Would give 6 stars if that was an option!

I hired Chris to take a very large and heavy armoir down a wrap-around staircase. Him and his assistant handled it with no problem. Chris was very professional and courteous.

I used 1 Guy,1Truck,1Trailer to move my Grandmother's household goods to storage. I called Chris Barry, the owner, to schedule the move and he was able to do it two days later. He arrived on time , with two extra crew, and skillfully wrapped, cushioned and tapped each item, and then packed them it in his trailer. He arrived at the storage unit promptly and unloaded the each piece with care, placing them in the storage unit. He and his crew were polite, professional, reasonable, timely and hard working. I would not hesitate to recommend them to someone who was looking for a reliable mover. Would give 6 stars if that was an option!

This company is THE WORST. Wanton disregard for our property, willful destruction. When we approached the owner Chris about the first couple destroyed items, we were informed that any claims would be subject to a $3500.00 deductible, more than was charged for the move. Things went downhill from there, as he callously brushed off the damage with comments like "you can glue that back together" when confronted with a Ralph Lauren crystal lamp that his crew admitted to dropping. They dragged our eliptical through the mud, jamming dirt under the gliders, and leaving streaks of mud smashed into the carpet of our new house. His idiot crew folded brand new rolls of wrapping paper to shove them into a box. Chris's response? So what? People throw it away after you wrap a present in it anyway… He refused to pay for any damage, and now we are compiling a full list of damaged items with photographic evidence to be presented in court. Beware. If you value your belongings, so not hire these jerks. We are filing suit and a complaint with the BBB.
- Janelle M.

Horrible company and the owner, Chris is completely rude and unprofessional. He damaged our furniture, some items being antique and made comments saying it didn't matter because they were expensive dust collectors. Parts of my belongings were complete missing to which he didn't care. I will be filing with the BBB as well as taking the matter to court.

Hired chris and his crew to move me after my divorce was final. He was very professional leading up to the day of the move though he could not physically be at my move his crew arrived on time and packed up my belongings and transported them to my storage unit in no time. I will definitely be using 1G1T1T again. I was completely satisfied with the level of service that was provided

I needed help moving some large furniture items at the last minute. I reached out to Chris and he got back to me right away. It was the end of the month and he was pretty booked up but offered to work me in and gave a really competitive price. When his moving crew showed up, they were friendly, efficient, and wrapped/padded everything really carefully. When the items arrived on the other end, they were in great shape. Would highly recommend. Thank you, Chris!

If you are on the fence let this help make the decision. I had a giant sectional i needed moved into a small condo and these guys tried 6 different ways and had to remove doors and light fixtures to get it inside and somehow got it inside when there was no way it should have fit!!! I would hire them in an instant.
- Karen F.

Chris and his team were extremely professional and courteous throughout our move. We moved from a 1 bedroom apartment in Arlington to Silver Spring on a Saturday morning. As this was our move into our first home, Chris put us at ease with his prompt communication and arrival and allowed us to relax because of our immediate trust in him. He also had a great sense of humor and made what is normally a loathsome day into something much more manageable. Also, his rate is much more affordable than any of the larger regional movers. I would recommend 1 Guy 1 Truck 1 Trailer to any of my friends or family looking to make a move.
- Scott R.

★★★★★
Chris and his team moved a 3 generation family piano from Alexandria to Leesburg. They were super careful and professional. They even fully wrapped the piano in protective materials at no extra cost. "I highly recommend 1guy1truck1trailer if you need ANYTHING moved". Thank you guys so much!! You are awesome !!
- Joe S.

★★★★☆
These guys are great. I didn't give them a whole lot of notice, but Chris was able to work me into their schedule on just a couple days notice. Professional attitude, they took great care of my stuff and worked hard and fast. I definitely recommend them for your next move job.
- Jason T.

I hate moving stuff.. F'ing hate it.. almost as bad as doing taxes.. Heck, I even hate packing up crap and getting it READY to be moved. Well.. I had some old equipment at a storage facility.. cable, ladder rack, cable management, spools, tools, patch panels, UPS, jacks, LAN equipment, racks, not easily moved stuff or stuff in a box. I was stressed and did not wanna move it.. I called and talked to Chris about it all.. I thinkI scared him on the phone.. Then, when he came out, he was like.. "wow? is this ALL"? and gave me a price.. I booked him instantly.. I even had him drop it at two locations and he did so with a smile. Now.. Next time I need stuff moved, hauled, etc.. He is my first choice! Thanks Chris!

I recently used Chris Barry again to move my sons 1 bedroom apartment. Same as the first time all communication was prompt, and an estimate was given over the phone. They showed up on time, (even a little early), and were quick and efficient on both ends of the move. Chris and his helper were delightful, professional, and took very good care in wrapping all the furniture well to protect it. It arrived here in excellent condition and they placed it neatly and compactly in our basement for storage. I am extremely satisfied and happy with the service Barry's Best Movers has given us on both occasions!
- Ellen C.

If there were an option for zero stars this company definitely deserves it. Terrible moving service even worse customer service. Call them if you want to pay to watch movers stand around talking on their phones and then have to move your own boxes.

What an awesome experience! In the middle of the pandemic lock down, we were given less than a week to move my father's belongings out of his assisted living apartment. I contacted several movers but Barry's was the only company to schedule me on a very short notice. They were also able to fully comply with the safeguards in place by the assisted living facility. They donned the PPE (personal protective equipment) issued by the facility, packed everything and moved everything. When they arrived at the final destination, they were wearing their own PPE! The movers were on time, finished quickly, and were extremely thorough. The main office was efficient, communicative, and best of all, had extremely reasonable pricing! Thank you so much!
