Moving Checklists

We would strongly recommend Big Foot Movers to anyone who is planning a move. To anyone who has ever faced a challenging move, you know that Murphy’s Law will come into play. But with Mike Bavuso and his team at Big Foot Moving, Murphy did not have a chance.

A set of unplanned events put us in a position of needing to move 5 days from the initial phone call to Big Foot Moving. One phone call to Mike, and the crew were scheduled and confirmed that day. Then boxes and moving materials were delivered to our door the following day as promised. The day arrived, and it was 95 degrees and humid as only Boston can be. Mike’s team showed up on time and had to move us into a fifth floor apartment with an old elevator that could not accommodate much of the move. Mike’s team never wavered or complained – they showed up on time, worked quickly and diligently under these difficult conditions until the job was done. They took as much care with our belongings as we would have. Thank you, Big Foot, for making a difficult situation as seamless and painless as possible!
