Moving Checklists

On behalf of our organization, I would like to thank Big Foot movers for doing an excellent job on our recent corporate move. The staff was professional and friendly, and moved our offices quickly and expertly. They were also able to accommodate our building hours and worked after-hours so we could adhere to an aggressive time-line. In addition, Big Foot’s staff was highly organized. They delivered boxes a week ahead of schedule to give us ample time to pack, and moved furniture and materials to the right place, without confusion. Everyone in our office – from the senior staff to junior employees – commended Big Foot’s moving team. I’d be pleased to use Big Foot again if the need arose and would recommend them to anyone looking for professional movers. If we have to move again, Big Foot will be the first to know!
