Big John Movers Reviews

I have have moved several times in my life thus far, and never has it been so seamless. The crew was professional and courteous. They were also a great value. I highly recommend them!
- Timothy B

Went with Big John Movers after finding them via a Google search. We had Randy's crew, and we couldn't have been happier. They moved a lot of large items (450 lb grill, treadmill, etc.) and didn't stop moving until everything was put away. They helped put beds back together, and made sure everything was OK before leaving. They made multiple runs from our old house to new, and even stopped by a storage unit to drop stuff off and pick stuff up. We'd use them again, and recommend to anyone.
- Brian Niehaus

Larry's crew was polite and efficient! Good work and great value from the company
- Aran Coughlan

Big John Movers were fantastic! They were very fast and professional. They even helped me take down a shelf in order to fit my new washer and dryer in the laundry room. They helped me hookup the washer and dryer as well and gave recommendations on how to change from a 4 prong to 3 prong dryer. I would highly recommend them. Randy’s team helped me move and they were great.

We had an incredible experience with Big John Movers! They were professional, affordable, and went above and beyond to protect all our fragile/valuable items. No surprise charges at the end like with some movers. They made moving as easy as it possibly could be.
- Julie Hancock

Larry, Donnie and Austin moved us. They were very fast and careful with our stuff. This is the first time I ever used any moving company and I was happy we picked this one. If we move again we will definitely call them.
- Bryan Banks

Scheduled a Sunday afternoon move earlier in the previous week. Called about 1:30 to see when they may be arriving. Secretary told me they were on a big job that it would be awhile. No problem. Called back again at 7pm and was told they still on the job but would still come to move me. 7pm on a Sunday night is NOT Sunday afternoon. When i questioned delay secretary was VERY rude and told me she was clear when i scheduled. No she was NOT. And no need to be rude. When i wanted to reschedule she said it would be another two weeks! and when i wanted to cancel she said i would NEVER get anyone in the city to move me an earlier. Well, I called one person this morning and they are moving me Thursday at 8am and by my surprise they are HALF THE PRICE!!!
- Amy Hester

I love Big John Movers!! Scheduling was easy and Ryan, Mike and Donny were absolutely wonderful! They called ahead, arrived on time and were so nice and professional! They got to work right away and were very respectful of our items. The way that Ryan managed how things got packed in to the truck was like an art. Everything was very thought out and organized efficiently. Not to mention it was like 90 degrees outside and they never complained! I had to make them take a break and let them soak up some A/C before they started to unload everything. I can't say enough about how continuously kind and friendly these guys were also. I could really tell that they take 100% pride in their work and I would highly recommend them to everyone! Thank you, Big John Movers!!
- Jodi Petty

Randy, Austin, and Michael were amazing! They were friendly, prompt, and super super fast. There were many stairs to navigate moving from one apt to the next and they were gracious the entire time. This is the second time My roommate and I have used Big John Movers and I would absolutely recommend them to everyone I know.
- Tess Talbot

Our movers, Ryan, Mike, and Jeff, handled our move with professionalism, efficiency, and care. We ran into a slight issue that Ryan personally rectified, and I highly recommend Big John Movers to anyone looking for an affordable, high-quality moving experience.
- Kalilah Montgomery

I made the best decision ever to hire them. They are so fast and efficient! Pat, Jeff, and Austin were our movers and I was so impressed by how hard they work. Very professional and made my moving day a breeze. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great moving experience.
- Sara Pitman

Randy and his two guys were nothing short of exceptional! Him and his crew and company were able to help me at the last minute. I reccommend them to ANY ONE in the Cincinnati area! Stop looking for a moving company! You found it right here at Big John's!!!
- Lou Pfaehler

Randy, Mike and Austin did an outstanding job. Got my entire place moved in only two hours. Rate was excellent. I would recommend these guys over other local companies in the Cincinnati area.
- Chris Kramer

Austin and Drew were amazing. They handled our antique furniture with caution and respect. They were fast and efficient. Both were incredibly polite and helpful.
- Lisa Volker

This is most I ever paid a moving company for just a 2 bedroom apartment move...They sent 3 guys which were good, but came in a small truck and had to do 2 trips which I now have less then I had from previous moves... Make sure if your moving ask for them send a big enough truck..I wont use or reccommend them..
- Helen Hutchison

The men were absolutely AMAZING!!!! Very quick and polite and very careful with all of my things!
- Rachel Brand

Love them

The movers themselves were terrific, getting them to my house was the problem. When I first contacted Big John's via email, I didn't get a response for 4 days. I called and was told they did send me an estimate, check my spam. No email. Front desk girl was pretty short with me, but I ended up scheduling my move anyway based on the glowing reviews. I was told they'd be coming in the "afternoon" - a sane person might think that means 2:00 pm or so. I was also told I'd get a call when they were on the way. At 3:45pm I called the office, and the front desk girl said she'd check where they were and get back to me. An hour later and no call, no nothing. I call them again, and she says she has a team ready, do I want them? I said yes, of course, why didn't you just send them already? It is now 4:45 pm. I get a call at 5:00 pm from the movers, they were 45 minutes away! They worked quickly once they arrived, but by the time I actually had all my furniture in my very small house, it was almost 9:00pm. No complaints about the actual movers but if you're looking for a timely, responsive company Big John's is not the way to go.
- Grace Grayson

Have used them many times. Their polite & fast .
- Eric Coriell

they refused to do move because of "debris" under the bed. Basically just left me hanging and took off. Most unprofessional thing i've ever seen from movers. Just horrible! By all means stay away.
- John Sullivan

A friend recommended Big John movers to us when we were relocating in Cincinnati, but we had already booked another company for our home move. We moved with the other company and were left underwhelmed. So when we needed a very heavy 7-piece desk unit picked up in KY and delivered to OH we called Big John. Not only were they THE most competitive rate, they did the job SAME DAY! Patrick and Dre were an incredible team. We were purchasing the item they were picking up sight unseen and a little nervous, and they made the whole experience better! They constantly checked in about timing, traffic, and even asked me to text them a picture of the item we were expecting and called me once they got to the pickup site to confirm everything matched the photos and looked great. These two gentlemen went above and beyond to provide piece of mind and worked extremely diligently, carefully wrapping and efficiently moving each piece of furniture. They set up our huge new desk with a smile and even shimmed it to perfection. What an awesome experience, attention to detail, and service! I highly recommend Big John, and would definitely request Patrick and Dre again in a heartbeat! Thanks, guys!
- Shannon Robichaud

We used these guys last week and they were amazing! They are great to work with and will get the job done; no matter what it takes. I will recommend this company to everyone that I know!
- Vince Woodall

These guys did an awesome job, Drew and Austin were right on time, worker extremely hard, very quickly, carefully and were also very professional. I would hire them again in a heart beat. Highly recommend.
- Otto shafer

Very personable and hardworking movers. The clear “second in command” guy had a good sense of humor. Did exactly as requested for moving most furniture and larger items from an apartment to a new house. Easily managed a giant truck on a very narrow, small residential street. Talked me through expectations, which were clear, and similarly from other reviews amount was exactly as quoted (we clocked in at exactly that 2 hr time). We scheduled only about 1.5-2 wks in advance, whereas the first co we called were already booked (this was for a Friday). Same prices no matter day of week. Only small suggestion would be that we technically didn’t get a confirmation email- we rec’d email about the quote (so they had the correct email). We called several days after we sent confirmation by email and the person said she was sending a confirmation within the next day and that we were locked in. Technically never received this, but week of luckily they beat us and called to confirm and obviously everything went on without a hitch from there. We had ordered for 3 guys, 2 showed up immediately and the other(s) were a little late, but 2 showed up (totaling 4) and they were very efficient and kept us with the rate for 3 ppl, which was fair. Would use again!
- Tara Immele

Absolutely exceptional service! Would highly recommend. The gentlemen that moved us, Patrick, Dre, and Zed, were right on time, professional, took great care with our furniture, and were FAST!
- Kacie O'Connor

I’ve used Big John Movers twice now and will definitely use them again in the future and recommend them to anyone I know! Everyone I have encountered on the phone and in person has been friendly and professional! Patrick, Dre, and Zed were so quick, careful, and courteous during my first move that I requested them to be the crew to help me move the next time too! I have nothing but good things to say about my experience!
- Jessica Willingham

These guys were so great! I want to give a special thanks to Pat, Dre, and Zed. I would recommend Big John Movers to anybody and everybody. If you need help moving these are the guys to call.
- Sephra Rutherford

Larry, Drew and Shane were a pleasure to work with! Fast and efficient!
