Big City Moving Company Reviews

Fantastic movers! Fast, careful, cheerful and competitively priced. I will be recommending them to everyone I know.
- Maria Miara

They were awesome. They made my move a lot more easier! I would recommend them to anyone.
- Jody Hill

If I could give them no stars I would. It was the worst experience ever! They were late. They broke things. It took nearly 12 hours to move a two bedroom apartment. I would never recommend them.
- Kimberly Hollie

This is the second time I used Big City Moving Co. Matthew is very responsive with quotes, returning calls, texts and emails. The crew is exceptional - couldn't ask for better service. These young men worked their tails off with no complaints. They were respectful, calm and professional. It's a nightmare to move in the heart of Boston and these guys were pros! Thank you again Big City Moving Co.
- Loraine Gurval

Can't say enough good things about this company! Matthew and team are incredible. My roommate and I had a large haul from Framingham to Cambridge and the guys were able to pack up the truck and get us all moved in within 4 hours. They were right on time and very efficient; unbelievable service and attention to detail. Zero damage to our apartment or personal belongings. Zack, Noah, and Kevin were so lovely to work with, even offering to help more after they had finished all the tasks requested of them. Not only were they great to work with, using this company saved us boatloads of money. We paid about half of what we were quoted otherwise. Don't let any bad reviews fool you--the new ownership has done their due diligence because I cannot relate to any of those issues at all. in my experience, they go above and beyond. Again, highly recommend Big City Moving Co. They saved me massive amounts of stress and cash; I will certainly use them again for my next move. Thanks guys!

I can’t tell you how disappointed, angry and ripped off I feel. I had hired this company two a half years ago to move from Waltham to Watertown and they were terrific. I had no idea they had become so inept and unprofessional. After getting a reasonable quote from Matt, I hired them to move me to Jamaica Plain believing I would get the same level of service I got 3 1/2 years ago. However, I had no idea that the performance they provided was going to be horrible. The day of the move they arrived late and loaded up the truck slowly. Then, we headed out to the new place. I left them at 11:15 AM and was advised from Matt it would take 40 minutes for them to get there. After all, it’s only 7-10 miles depending on which route was taken. They didn’t arrive until 1:30 PM with no notice of what was taking them so long. Apparently, they took a nice leisurely lunch break, but said they were stuck in traffic. Then, the speed at which they unloaded the truck was incredibly slow. One of the guys would bring up a lamp and then 10 minutes later another small item and then five minutes later a box. They had absolutely no sense of urgency whatsoever. At one point I went out looking for them and found one guy in the cab of the truck either sleeping or playing with this phone doing nothing. Then, Matt and another guy was taking down a stack of boxes, rolled it down the ramp, lost control of the dolly and dropped one on the ground. Fortunately it wasn’t anything fragile, but other things in the move did get broken. I even provided them with water, as it appeared they had none. What would have they done had I not done so? It was totally unprofessional. By the time it was all over they took what should’ve been a 4 to 6 hour move and made it into an 8-hour catastrophe. They charged me $1,900 for 8 hours, which included their two hour lunch and their incredibly slow performance plus travel time (their last move cost me less than $600). When I argued with Matt about that he defended what they did as standard. I’ve never felt so ripped off in my life. Granted, it was rather warm (around 85°), but they didn’t care about time at all. Matt and his two lazy college-aged kids just taking their time not giving a damn. I strongly urge anyone looking for movers to never use this company, as I will never do so again!
- Allan Hunter

Great experience! The guys are very professional and Matt provided a great quote. They were on time and everything was handled with care! Would definitely recommend to everyone and will be using for my next moves! 5 stars.
- Samantha Jones

I had a great experience with this company. They were punctual, friendly, and had the best rates. As a young female, I felt safe with the crew, and they even made helpful suggestions for arranging my living room!
- Trixie The Pug

I have used these movers more than once as well as for storage of goods. They were a great company to work with! Great response times, very professional staff. For sure I will use them again.
- Cara DiPierro

As a realtor, I do not typically recommend a mover, you never know if you are going to get the same crew or not. Since meeting Matthew and his team, I have no hesitation whatsoever recommending Big City Movers to all my clients. They are trustworthy and very professional! They do it all- from packing to storage to moving & assembling furniture. I’ve even used them for 2 step moves. If I have clients that need to uncluttered before coming on the market, Matthew & his team will go in, remove & store any furniture and then deliver it on the other end once the transaction has closed. A+ service & experience! Thank you Big City Moving!!!
- Lauren O'Brien

After raising my children and living in my home for almost 20 years, it was time for a move. Big City Moving was recommended by my realtor. I contacted Matt and he made the whole process very easy. He responded quickly, came by to take a look on a Sunday, emailed a quote to me by Tuesday!
- Laurie Montague

Good group of movers and very professional.
