One Big Man & One Big Truck Reviews

I desperately needed assistance in moving a bulky recliner out of a room. I did everything I could think of - tried moving it on its side, removing pieces... no success. I called this company because it's locally owned with excellent Yelp reviews. I would give more than 5 stars. The owner was honest about the cost and his availability. For one piece of furniture, it was cost prohibitive and our schedules did not match. Regardless, he took the extra time to provide much needed expert guidance over the phone. He not only saved me time, but he saved me money. Who does that in this day and age? Chivalry, customer service, and integrity are not dead!!! When I need to move in the future, I now know who to call.

Absolutely wonderful experience with OBMOBT. Lou and Jose helped us move our one-bedroom apartment and were extremely professional and efficient. They treated every item with care and provided everything we needed. We had a lot of stuff but they made our move so much easier! I also enjoyed working with Fred - he was clear about all the details and what he needed from us and he was easy to talk to. Whenever I had a question he responded quickly. We're so grateful to One Big Man and would definitely work with them again!
- Amy S.

I've just completed my third move with OBMOBT and all three moves have been phenomenal. They are so professional and communicative all the way from before the move and during. They were able to complete my 1 bedroom move with two guys in a little under 4 hours. They're not cheap, but you really do get what you pay for. My movers were Mario and Jose, and they were awesome. They handled all my requests during the move without pause, took great care wrapping and protecting my vintage furniture, and you can tell they make a lot of effort to make sure the movers are using techniques to minimize injury as well. And somehow they were still FAST. I'm always so impressed and pleased, and knowing they're moving me gives me a chance to breathe a sigh of relief during an otherwise stressful event. I will always use this company for moves in the Bay.
- Rebecca P.

I had to move everything from a studio apartment into storage. Two guys came and made it look easy! These guys are professional, on-time, thoughtful, efficient, and best of all super fast! Thanks One Big Man for making a hard day easy.
- Ann J.

Yesterday Ryan, Daniel and Alex from OBM moved me from a home I'd been in for 31 years. I can't say enough about them. They were on time, attentive, efficient, effective, kind, & swift! These three guys were just the best! I was afraid, once at the new place something would be damaged for sure, but absolutely no damage, not even a scratch.. If I ever have to move again, I will ONLY use One Big Man and One Big Truck! I extremely highly recommend this company, if you need to move, seriously!!!
- Pamela Z.

Incredible experience with One Big Man! WOW! This was my first time using movers and they were incredible! From first contact, they were so helpful! Easy to communicate with and timely responses prior to the move. During the move, the men were efficient, professional and careful. We were moving into a 3rd floor apartment and they moved everything quickly with ease. We were completely moved in under 3 hours! We are so thankful, highly recommend!
- Nicolette A.

What a great company. From our first contact with the office, through scheduling and the move itself, everybody involved was efficient, friendly at a professional level, and highly skilled at their particular roles. This particular move was small, but if we ever need anything else, OBMOBT will be first on our list. Thank you, team!
- S R S.

Staff very conscientious about Covid-19 precautions. Utterly professional at all times. Moved several large, fragile and extremely hard to maneuver pieces from my small house. Crew made a phenomenal effort and move went extraordinarily well. Getting ready to call now for a second appointment. That's the best recommendation I can give. OBM was outstanding.
- David S.

Professional, timely, and quick! I cannot even begin to express how absolutely amazing One Big Man and One Big Truck was for our move, but I'm going to try... First and foremost, as everyone knows, moving sucks and it's expensive. We initially looked at several moving companies, and while OBM was slightly pricier per hour, it was well worth the price and service. Also, they didn't double book or cancel on us (grr, to those other movers we'd originally booked, so yeah, go with OBM because they genuinely know what they're doing AND they're organized). Here are some high-level points as to WHY you should go with OBM: - OBM was easy to contact while booking. Their pricing model was easy to understand and they sent over a datasheet for us to fill regarding our furniture. This made it easy for them to see what size of truck to get for us, and how many folks to come and help us. - For us, they got us a super large truck and 3 folks to help us. - They were flexible with our two apartments - one of which was a no stairs move with an elevator use, and the other was a 1-floor walk-up. - When they moved us in to our new place, I was SHOCKED at how fast they unloaded everything! For example, the guys carried the clothing wardrobe on their backs - like a backpack, and they even carried 3-4 boxes at a time like that too! It was CRAZY amazing. They were so coordinated, and they used straps - not dolly's/hand trucks - to get it up the stairs. Overall, guys, I was so shocked at how great OBM was. First, we did a 2 bedroom move in 5 hours TOTAL - including a lunch break. Second, they were extremely polite while we moved on such a hot day with bad air quality. PS, remember to tip!
- Amy

Yesterday, I hired 2 movers from this company to load a U haul. The process before the move was good - upon booking I was promptly sent a confirmation and inventory form to fill out which is the only reason why this isn't a 1 star review. On the day of the move, the movers were 15 minutes late, which normally wouldn't be a huge deal, but there was a full 2 hour arrival window which they missed. Loading my already packed small studio took a full 2 hours and 15 minutes. I've moved several times in the past few years and that job should have easily taken most professional movers about an hour if not less. Not only did the job take longer than expected, but the truck was loaded horribly - there was no thought given to putting big items in first, large pieces put in at odd angles, overall a complete mishmash. They also damaged my bookcase when removing a door and scratched my floor with my dresser. Overall, I'm out $500 for a bad service that was late and took longer than it should. I would definitely look elsewhere for moving services next time.

One of the movers took my patio furniture without letting me know. I saw it in their truck. I asked the furniture to be thrown out. I also gave them a tip. That same mover asked me if I wanted my rug to be laid out instead of kept rolled up in the plastic. WTF question is that? My television and another piece of furniture was also left with the plastic on that they left. If you would like more information plz direct message me. I have photos. I don't understand why this place has such great reviews. This place was also a lot more expensive than the company I used a year ago.
- Christina N.

When I think of moving, I imagine a stress-free experience where everything is taken care of. My experience with One Big Man, One Big Truck, is anything but. They were significantly late, slow, loud and damaged some of our items. Late- they were about 1hr behind Slow- they took their sweet time to move everything one. by. one Loud- obnoxiously loud throughout the loading and unloading Damaged items- they didnt care that the larger, heavier items crushed the lighter, smaller items. No rhyme or rhythm, just everything in. I've moved many times in my life and this is probably the worst experience I've had. I wont be back.
- Jessica P.

I had the best, stress free moving experience because of One Big Man and One Big Truck. I highly recommend hiring them! I received quotes from 5 other moving companies and OBMOBT was the best price I could find. The day of the move they showed up on time, 10 minutes before 9am. They wrapped everything in packing blankets, they were careful, meticulous and handled all of my furniture with care. They even provided cardboard wardrobe boxes that made moving clothes on hangers really easy! The crew was professional, friendly and efficient. I moved from a one bedroom apartment on the peninsula to the east bay and the guys were done in 4 hours! I couldn't be happier. Thank you Jonathan, Oliver and Ryan! I am forever grateful, you guys really are amazing!
- Emerald M.

I was blown away with their efficiency and professionalism. They made my moving day easy. I'm so grateful! I would highly recommend them. I worked with George, Anthony, and Daniel, who were phenomenal!
- Andrea Z.

God blessed all of you
- Ada W.

During an escrow from hell, Fred kept me calm with the rescheduling mess I put him through. Once moving day came, his employees were polite, professional, and quick. Do not hesitate to book One Big Man and One Big Truck. A+ service.
- Jon S.

Cannot recommend them enough. The whole process was extremely organized and well coordinated. We appreciated the level of detail upfront in the scheduling call and the inventory list they had you fill out. A few days before the move, they called to re-confirm the move and also run through our inventory list and give us a few pointers (remove bulbs from lamps, tape cardboard over mirror, etc.) which were very helpful. On the day of, Daniel, Bruce and the team were total pros. They were extremely fast, well coordinated, and clearly experienced. They were super careful with all of our stuff - not a single bump during the process and no dings on any of our walls or stuff. They were also friendly and very helpful (e.g., offered to move around furniture, took the time to read the labels on our boxes and confirm where everything should go, placed the boxes with the labels on the outside, etc.). Daniel in particular had an amazing memory and was super good on details of where we wanted stuff to go.
- Sarina Y.

AMAZING MOVERS!!! The whole process was exceptionally seamless. The movers worked wildly fast and finished my entire move in approximately 2.5 hours, while still being careful with all my items. I was expecting it to take at least 4 hours at minimum and they blew me away with their efficiency. Also, both movers were extremely professional and kind. They even asked several times if I needed any extra items moved that I had not listed and double checked that I liked the placement of all my furniture at my new apartment. Highly recommend One Big Man for any and all moving needs, they won't disappoint!
- Aishwarya S.

Had a great experience. I hope I don't have to move again anytime soon but if I do they will be my first to contact. They were one of the only businesses that I found that did not have minimum hourly charge. I did not have a lot of things but there were things I couldn't move myself so it was nice to just be charged by the actual time I used. They were kind, polite, and very responsive. They worked very quickly and as carefully as they could. Worth every star!
- Heather G.

These guys are great! My partner and I have used them 3 times in the last year and they're excellent every time. They're easy to get ahold of and chat with before your move, they're clear on the planning and expectations, their estimates of how long it'll take are spot-on, they have a bunch of supplies for sale that they're bring to you before your move, and they bring a bunch of useful stuff on the day of the move (blankets, plastic wrap, wardrobe boxes, etc.). They're careful, efficient, and super friendly and funny!
- Jeffrey S.

On time. Very efficient. Polite and professional. They quoted three hours and they were on target. I highly recommend them and I will use them again
- John Akers

Polite customer service, honest pricing, easy to schedule, and efficient movers.
- krobie53

This was my first time hiring movers and it was definitely worth it. I was able to get a quote within a day of contacting them. I was moving from a studio apartment in the South Bay to a studio apartment in Oakland. I had partially packed my apartment but not fully. Daniel and George showed up at 9:30am and everything was in my new apartment around 2pm. All in all it was less than 6 hours total (including the driving time from SF to the South Bay, South Bay to Oakland, and Oakland back to SF). Hopefully I don't end up moving again for a while, but whenever I do I will definitely use them.
- Kylia Miskell

If I had to use one word to describe One Big Man & One Big Truck it would be Stellar. Their 3 Man crew moved me and my family with efficiency, knowledge and mindfulness. Hopefully, I will never have to move again and if I do it will definitely be these guys!
- Tonya Coughlin

They know they are doing. They work hard and they are courteous.
- Sam Ennis

A business with a great family like culture who get things done right!

Great service and they made my move stress free!
- Joy DiFranza

I highly recommend this company! The movers were very professional and incredibly polite, nice and accommodating. They found solutions for everything! They were very honest and I felt totally comfortable leaving them with all my stuff. They were also very efficient! They even disassembled and assembled again pretty hard Ikea furniture. It's the second time I use this company and I will definitely use it again 🙂
- Ursula Redon

This was our first time hiring a company for a local move so my husband and I did a fair bit of research before choosing One Big Man & One Big Truck. We could not have been happier with our choice. Mark and his two man crew showed up on time, were super efficient and careful with our belongings and did an overall phenomenal job. Moving sucks, but they helped make it suck less. I highly recommend One Big Man & One Big Truck!!
- Carole F
