Big Boys Moving and Storage Reviews

Don't waste your time elsewhere call Big Boys Moving I spent weeks researching movers, reading many company quotes and a long list of reviews. Big Boys Moving company moved to the top of my list. After speaking with Susan I was pretty sure I chose the right company. The movers arrived prepared and on time. They where like machines quickly wrapping and packing my things. I was impressed on how fast that they emptied my whole home. Everything that Susan had promised went exactly as planned as she said
- Vincent Capriglione

SLOWEST Movers, AWEFUL customer Service My second experience using Big Boy Movers was Nothing like the First. This time they showed up late, workers moved very slowly, taking way too much time shrink wrapping everything- even and old couch. One worker needed Advil for his headache, complaining that they worked a 15 hour day previously...They broke my grandmothers vintage dresser mirror, and then had the nerve to charged us for an extra hour ($109) based on 10 minutes overage. I made many and lengthy attempts to resolve my disputes with the company without satisfaction. Worst movers I've ever used. DO NOT use this company !!
- Kiki

Once again made our move stress free Big Boys Moving once again made our move seem easy and again it went stress free. After hearing great things about them back in 2016 this was actually the second time that we have used them. I didn't take the time to write a review the first time. Because of their fantastic service on our first experience we never thought twice to try anyone else. They certainly earned our repeat business. They're well known in Tampa as a reputable, family run business. They were straight forward with pricing and considerate in every way. If you want a professional move don't waste your time looking around there's only one call to make and its to Big Boys.
- Helen Drexler

USE ANOTHER MOVER When I chose Big Boys Moving, they quoted me for 3-5 hours worth of moving at 139.00 plus a 99.00 surcharge for gas, etc. The movers took an hour lunch break plus several smoke breaks and ended up charging us for 8 hours plus added gratuity. When I called to address the issue, I was told to write an email. I wrote a professional email using my school email address and they reported me to my school saying I harassed them. The dispute officer from my school contacted me and simply said there was nothing wrong with the email I sent, just not to use the school email for personal use. I am humiliated and feel completely wronged by this company. I called to ask Susan why she would have reported me to my school and she repeatedly hung up on me saying she can't speak to me over the phone.

Read the five star reviews. You'll be happy you did! I did my homework. Don't let the nasty nsncys and bitter bettys fool you from choosing an amazing company! Read the five star reviews and you will easily see the truth. This company has been in business with an office that I've passed daily for many years. After asking around I also have many, many friends that had a great experience. I moved March 30th from Oldsmar to Palm Harbor. I have so many good things to say about Big Boys Moving & Storage company that I honestly don't know exactly where i should start. Excellent communication and guidance from their sales department. They helped us plan right up until the day of our move. We've lived in the same home for ten years and did not realize how much junk we had accumulated. My salesperson planned the packing the evening before. They team that arrived were terrific. They packed all my kitchen, my china cabinet and both of my curio cabinets with care. They used blankets and wrap on all of my furniture. The extra special care truly showed with my antiques which included my pride and joy items the grandfather clock and baby grand piano. They took everything apart, wrapped it all and ready for the move leaving just our bed together for us to sleep in that night. The next morning the same Big Boys arrived and got right to work loading their trucks. They moved quickly as a team and their experise again shined bright. We were shocked at how fast they loaded both trucks. The previous day packing and preparations was definitely the way to go. Even though we moved into a smaller home the unload still went just as smooth. We won't be moving again anytime soon but I will surely be spreading the word on how great this company is. If your looking for a smooth stress free move your call to Big Boys will be the absolute best choice that you could make.

Amazing experience I have used big boys moving and storage twice in the last two years and I have not been let down! They gave me an fair price and did an awesome job! I will continue to recommend them to anyone moving! When I was stressed out about the move they assured me that they were there to help.
- Marshe Torres

Perfect service. Promptly scheduled exactly when I wanted the move done. Arrived on time with more than enough guys and job was done in 1/4 the estimated time. There was no damage and everything put away where it goes. It could not have been better.
- Kathy

Not honest This is not a company who stands by what they tell you to get your business. In fact, they resort to screaming at you on the phone when you have a discrepancy with the final bill. I will say the movers themselves are exceptional and we have no problems with their performance or how they treated us. However, the office staff is a different story. I wont mention names, as I do not want to make this personal. But we were yelled at by office staff when we tried to get our bill rectified. We were promised free travel charges and no hidden fees - all sent via email and in writing. Our estimate more than doubled. They charged us for travel charges and the "specials" they gave us, including $100 off that you may see on their website, is a scam to get you in there. After the fact, they tell you that the "Reduced" their hourly fee from $149 to $129 which is so much more than other movers charge, to begin with. Even though we provided emails showing their empty promises, they still will not refund the travel charges, despite filing a BBB review. All they do is argue and they simply do not care about you once they have your business. Again, the movers are great and they deserve 5 stars based on the actual moving experience. The billing and office staff, is another story. If you use them, just be aware of hidden fees and travel charges and anything they verbally promise you.
- Mel Buchan

Great Experience Although I was extremely anxious about my move I was completely taken care of by big boys! They were timely, efficient, and courteous. They took care of my belongings with great care. Would use this company every time and recommend to anyone!
- Victoria Smith

Very Helpful Great service from start to beginning. Shelby helped us set up a time and date and was very nice and professional and patient. It was our first time using this service and with her help and the crew that came out for us, we will definitely be using this service again.
- Matthew Granger

What a great experience I had with your company.. All because Mrs Shelby Torres took her time on the phone with me to answer all my questions and to make sure i understood everything About my upcoming morning experience.. She was extremely knowledgeable and courteous thank you for having such an outstanding Employee as Shelby!!!!!
- Shelby Torres

My aunt's move My aunt Doris moved with Big Boys Moving and could not have been happier! The movers showed up on time and were ready to handle it all. We had a few larger things but nothing they couldn't handle. I will recommend over and over.
- Alisha Hill

Great Service Big boys did a fantastic job helping me move my piano. Very polite and knowledgeable employees. Shelby helped me get everything scheduled with such ease.
- Martha Valdes

Moved piano Alex and his crew moved a heavy piano for me. They Did a fantastic job maneuvering the truck in tight quarters. Scheduling with Shelby was a breeze. Best price of the 3 local companies I received quotes from.
- Nick Peters

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY If you think your belongings are secure, you are wrong! Your stuff is stored in an ancient pod out in the heat of day, that is secure with a single rusty lock that can easily be broken. There are holes in the floor of the pod that are patched with broken cardboard. Anyone can walk in at anytime, and the place is hardly ever staffed. The pods aren't even secured by a locked gate. Not only will these people steal your money and over charge you, but they damage your belongings, and their storage units are rat filled; the place is just awful! I wish I had taken pictures when I was just there. I had a horrible experience. I was told that I was getting a deal, the movers were there for 3 hours, one hour spend chit-chatting; then I was charged for 5 hours. Allegedly, it took them 2 hours to put my stuff in storage units, but they can't actually prove how long it took. For all I know, the movers had 5 more guys waiting at the loading area and it took all of 10 minutes, but they charged me for 2 hours to make more money. What a scam this place is.
- Christina Stafford

Don't deserve ONE STAR! RUN the other way and don't use these crooks! I wonder who they are paying to have 4 stars because it is definitely NOT Big BOYS. Their customer service, moving service, and everything else is the absolute WORST I have ever encountered. They charged my credit card MORE THAN WAS AUTHORIZED and refused to refund it, my credit card company had to take matters into their own hands for these crooks! OVER $1,000 for a one bedroom one bath less than a eighth of a mile away!!!!! THEY SHOULD BE OUT OF BUSINESS. The problem is you don't know until it is too late!!! Go somewhere else and find a reputable company, not these people.
- Linda A Haynes

Fast and Easy Very satisfied with my service. Nice, professional and hard working guys. Quoted me exactly the cost and estimated time to move me. One bedroom apt moved from Brandon to Lutz. Move completed in 3 hrs. I would definitely use them again. I spoke to Shelby and she was fantastic. Thank you so much!
- Misty Mccloud

Excellent experience Just a shout out to Alex and Benjamin who helped me with my move today. The POD was placed a little farther away from my building than I wanted but they both took it in stride! They worked non stop and were both super nice! This is the second time I’ve used Big Boys and would highly recommend them!
- Gerri Thompson

Best company EVER! The movers were fantastic, polite and fast! I wish I had been using these guys my whole life, it would have cut down on a LOT of stress with all my moves. I will DEFINITELY be choosing them when my lease is up next year! I'm so happy I finally found someone I could trust to move my important belongings, they even got my baby grand with no issue. These boys really were big! Shelby in the office is a great, personable lady who was happy to help me get scheduled, work with me on my date, and accommodate all my ridiculous questions without getting frustrated. In fact, she even told me to call back with any other questions, which I hope she didn't regret! GO WITH BIG BOYS, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!
- Rita Yolander

This company is a rip off they quoted me one price and charge me more they charge by the hour and the movers don't get in a hurry so it will take them 3 hours to load a truck and 3 hours to unload they held by furniture hostage till I paid.
- Dean Manning

The guys were very courteous. They worked dilligently, no goofing around. They took great care of our stuff, loaded up the truck, and then delivered & unloaded the stuff at our destination in a very efficient manner. Thanks again for a job well done.
- Julia Kartawidjaja

Professional Movers Alex & Benjamin did a great job. They were EARLY, professional and careful with our things. We would definitely use Big Boys again and will request Alex and Benjamin as well.
- Lin Bas

Total RIPOFF & Poor Customer Remediation If you are going to claim to be the top movers out there, then you should be able to back it up with great customer service. NO one is perfect but your ability to compensate for imperfections goes along way. Particularly when you are dealing with customers who are moving,which is innately a very challenging process in one's life. These movers significantly overcharged us and did not put together our furniture properly causing us to have to spend an additional 2 hours rebuilding it. They only supplied us with 2 movers and we clearly needed 3 , This is a strategy they use to overcharge you because at over $100 per hour with only 2 helpers can run you over 10 hours if you are not careful. The movers were polite and careful but I think they were overworked and tired. Guess who has to pay for that.. US! They took super long and made lots of mistakes in putting together our furniture because they were tired. Shelby suggested we should have stopped them once we noticed they were exhausted to prevent the extra hours of charges... This is not a suitable solution and as such she gets 1 star for customer service and her inability to challenge herself as it pertains to how she managed the allocation of helpers for the job costing us over 500 more than initially quoted The move was less than 1 mile away and we paid 1000! That is insane. I would never use this Company again. NEVER EVER!
- Rojas Family

Highly Recommended Booking with Shelby was an easy process and clearly explained expectations for the time and cost. She proactively reached out the day before to offer a earlier spot in the day which worked well for all. Alex and Turp, our moving crew, were very careful with our furniture, taking the necessary precautions to pad and wrap each item before loading. They were very collaborative in the process and took time to offer recommendations on which items should be first on/last off. On the delivery side, they setup the furniture where we asked and assembled the pieces that needed it. Kudos to Alex, Turp, and Shelby for making our move effortless! -Chris (Tampa)
- Chris Wallace

Kind, caring and courteous! I cannot begin to thank Shelby’s Crew enough! My moms refrigerator quit on her last night and I happened to have a a spare, not being used much, in my garage. With no notice, Shelby helped me problem solve and the best ever crew showed up at my house within a couple hours and delivered to my sweet mom. They treated her so nicely and even took her old fridge to the roadside for pick up. We woke up with a big problem this morning and this company/crew was an absolute Godsend! Many thanks to all!
- Mar Ru

Moving 4 bdr house Great job by Rob and Wes in our move on May 18. They were very professional and wraped all our furniture where applicable and took apart the bedroom furniture without any issues. I would rate them 10 stars but can only choose five on your site. I would like to have Rob and Wes back to move our furniture once our new home is finished.
- Bert Watson

Piano Move I inherited an upright piano from my grandmother. Alex and his coworker took care to well wrap, and lift the piano from her home to mine. The office team was also wonderful about contacting me in a timely manner and ensuring I knew what to expect. Shelby was so helpful in getting me scheduled, and understanding when the pandemic broke out and I needed to delay the move. All in all, I am super pleased and plan to use them again anytime I need to move again.
- Lauren Leahey

I was impressed with how quickly Big boys moving and storage loaded all my belongings into the moving truck. They did everything as promised. The person I spoke to via phone explained each stage of the move so I knew exactly what to expect at all times. Not only did they unpack everything but also they disposed of the leftovers. I’m truly grateful for the quality of service I received. They were on time both for the pickup and delivery. They really managed to exceed my expectations. I will recommend them to all the people seeking for a reliable moving assistance. I’m sure they won’t let anyone down.
- Vincent Capriglione

Big boys moving and storage is a dedicated and hard working team. They were thorough in explaining what the move would look like. I was stressed out by the moving situation and they assured me that everything would be just fine. They didn’t skip any step, performed the move according to plan except for the tiny delay. They arrived late, but it was due to the chaos caused by Irma. I’m planning to contact them again after the holidays since my first move with them was a good experience. In fact, it would’ve been perfect if it wasn’t for that slight inconvenience.
- Gene A Smout

Big Boys Moving and Storage made my move to Dallas a breeze. I didn’t expect even in my craziest dreams that a household move could be that easy. Their extraordinary service turned out to be budget-friendly as well. They kept everything under control at all times and having them around was a huge relief. I was confident that my goods were in good hands. I hired them based on what I heard and read about them. Can’t wait to tell everyone how amazing they were. They ensured a trouble-free move and thanks to them I felt a lot better about my household move.
