Big John's Moving Inc.

1602 1st Avenue, New York , NY 10028
Founded in 1977, Big John’s Moving has grown from a one-man operation to a leading full-service moving company, with a fleet of modern, “green” energy-efficient vans, trucks, and trailers. In fact, we are of the few remaining independent movers in New York City.

Our experienced crew of professional movers, handpicked and hired by Big John himself, shares our founder's passion for providing excellent service for moves of all sizes -- residential, commercial, local, and long distance -- at an affordable cost. We also offer professional packing services, private storage, moving supplies, and free on-premise estimates. We are committed to making your move as seamless and stress-free as possible, and providing peace of mind during what can be a stressful and hectic time. 

Our residential moving services will provide you peace of mind during this hectic and disruptive time. We will send a team of experienced movers, employed and trained by Big John himself, to do the job. These career professionals abide by moving industry standards and Big John’s personal requirements to provide a superior quality move. They will wrap, pack, and move your belongings as if they were their own. And we never use subcontractors.
Our location in the Port Morris section of the Bronx—just one mile from our Upper East Side office—allows us to offer low storage rates at about half the cost of our Manhattan competitors.
The protection of your property is our top priority.
  • 24-hour security cameras, armed guards, and trained guard dogs.
  • Customer-only access. (Clients are professionally escorted to and from storage areas)
  • Clean, well-lit, energy efficient facility.
