I’ve been out of college for twenty years, and probably moved 10 times. I never before remembered a mover’s name or the experience (unless it was bad,which it was frequently).

Mike is the first person in my life to giving moving a “Brand Name.”

I want to say that within six months, I had to arrange two moves; one for my office (from Brighton to Watertown) and one for my home (from Newton to Needham). I used Mike Bavuso for both, and I COULD NOT HAVE CHOSEN WISER. He is organized, friendly and efficient. He came in on time and under budget in both cases.

I could go on about how previous movers have left me in the lurch; taken long, unexplained breaks; given me estimates that don’t reflect the real staff and move-time expectations; had bad attitudes; broken things or otherwise acted with neglect; but why should I?

I will only have one mover from now on—Big Foot Moving & Storage. I will recommend Big Foot to anyone who asks and even those who don’t ask. I have already recommended him to two of my office mates (one was my boss) and they were full of the same respect and admiration I had. We all asked ourselves, how is it we got to be adults throughout hundreds of collective moves and have never had such an excellent experience? The answer is probably—no one has ever done it as well as Mike and Big Foot Moving & Storage, Inc. Staggering, but true.

Storage

If you need a place to store your belongings before, during, or after your move, Big Foot Moving & Storage, Inc. is able to accommodate

your belongings in a clean, safe, secure, and dry storage facility.

We offer sealed private containers which we commonly refer to as “storage vaults”. Our storage vaults provide approximately 245 cubic feet of space. The vault measures 7 feet wide by 7 feet high by 5 feet deep and holds approximately one room of furniture on average. Vaults may look small compared to the size of the room in your residence, but when loaded by Big Foot Movers, the volume that can fit will surprise you.

Pianos are stored in a separate climate controlled area within the warehouse. Oversized items that will not fit into a vault are stored on separate racks at an additional fee. Your items in storage can be accessed Monday through Friday between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm with (24) hour notice. Big Foot Moving & Storage, Inc. reserves the right to charge an additional handling fee for extra items brought in to or removed from storage after initial entry.

Our 20,000 square foot storage warehouse is newly constructed, clean, organized, well lit, secure, and fully climate controlled. Our climate controlled warehouse ensures that your goods will not be subject to extreme hot or cold temperatures. A controlled climate eliminates the humidity in the air and keeps the temperature from falling below 55° or rising above 80°.

Big Foot storage customers are pleased to know that all of their possessions are professionally wrapped in new moving pads as well as professionally inventoried at residence. Padding your furniture and items will protect from potential damage claims. An inventory of your furniture and items will serve as a record for the overall condition of the goods as they are placed into storage, as well as a record of the condition when delivered. Both parties (you and Big Foot) will have a copy of the inventory sheet(s) that detail your items.

We offer storage liability/insurance protection to all short term or long term storage customers. You will be comforted to know that our warehouse is equipped with a sprinkler system for fire protection, alarmed for smoke and intrusion, and tied into local police and fire departments.
