Great Movers! 8/25/2008

When I called OBMOBT, I was a little anxious. My belongings were in a basement, so I wasn't sure how they'd take it. Paul was very helpful in going over the process and how OBMOBT worked. On the day of the move, Quentin and Jan (I apologize if I misspelled your name) arrived on time with smiles. They were polite and courteous; and they didn't seem to mind that the basement ceiling was really low which was reassuring. They went over my inventory list and did an eye check of everything that needed to be moved. I didn't have a lot -- just 50+ boxes and a few pieces of furniture and belongings. They really hoofed it! Carrying 3-4 boxes on their backs, they loaded the truck in less than 40 minutes. But the amazing thing was at the other end. My new place is cross town and on the 3rd floor. They arrived in record time (I thought they would take longer in a truck) and hoofed it there too! 3-4 boxes per guy, up 2-3 flights of stairs. I swear it must have taken only 20 minutes because in all, everything was completed in 1.25 hours! They were fast, efficient and professional. Afterwards, I also received a follow-up call from OBMOBT to see how things went. Great customer service! I definitely will use OBMOBT again; and I recommend that anyone looking for courteous, efficient professional movers to give them a call. Pros: Courteous, fast, professional attitude. Great customer service all around. Cons: None. more

These guys are TANKS! 5/19/2008

I was majorly procrastinating on hiring movers for my fiance and myself to move from our seperate residences and into our first fabulous one bedroom. After hearing them recommended several times, I figured I'd give them a call and see if they could fit me in. The nicest man I've ever spoken to over the phone walked me through the whole process and made me feel cared for and at ease. He was great at following up with me and scheduled my move date for the day I requested. On move day, two buffer than hell guys showed up right on time and my fiance's place, and proceeded to quickly but carefully load all his worldly possesions onto their truck. They were FAST, STRONG, and POLITE! Seriously nice guys. After that, they came to my home. My place was a condo with obnoxious HOA rules that we were bending a bit, and these guys made it work. After dismanteling several of my pieces of furniture, they made quick work of carrying my heavy things down to their truck! I have substantial pieces that I had previously been worried about, (like a 6' x 3"", 200lb glass top desk) but they carefully wrapped all my items and secured them well within their truck.\r \r Everything arrived at my new home in perfect condition! They set up my bed for me and were very curtious and FAST once again. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND One Big Man movers and will DEFINITELY use these guys again when the time comes. Their prices were fair and they do an oustanding job. \r \r The owner even followed up with me just to double check that I was pleased and warmly wished me and my fiance all the best! What an outstanding moving company to do business with! Thank you, Fred!! Pros: OUTSTANDING customer service!!! Cons: N/A more

Great service 5/15/2008

I hired this company at the very last minute and they were very accommodating, fast, efficient, courteous, and a pleasure to work with. Three guys showed up early on a Sunday morning and moved our 2 bedroom apartment in just under 2 hours - very much worth the money. I will hire them again next time I move. more

fast, organized movers 11/14/2006

These folks are great. They're really organized: they make you fill out a complete inventory, but that means that they can give you a good estimate of how long it will take, and they on time. And the crew was fantastic: really strong (it was amazing watching them carry four heavy boxes of books on their backs (!) up 3 flights of stairs) and fast (they never seemed to stop for a breath). I'd definitely use them again. Pros: fast, organized & strong more

fast, honest, and friendly 10/26/2006

I had a fantastic experience with my move thanks to these guys. The team they sent moved our stuff fast as can be and everything made it to our new place just the way it left our old. Everything was done faster than I expected and the price was great. All this on less than 7 days notice. If you're moving and want to hire help these are the guys to go with. more

Courteous, hard working employees! 9/19/2006

We found these guys to be outstanding to work with. Easy to schedule move date, on time arrival at home, very hard working employees! Highly recommended!!! Pros: Efficient more

Fast, friendly, easy to work with, on time and willing to work on weekends! 9/19/2006

We called on a Thursday and our job was finished by Sunday afternoon. The service was very professional, friendly, and fast. Pros: follow up call, too! more

Best movers anywhere! 8/27/2006

I use this moving company frequently and I have to say that they are some of the best I have ever seen! They are always on time and efficient in what they do. Although you won't actually get one big man and one big truck, they will send out 2 average size guys who work their butts off to make you happy! more

Moving services wonderful responsive courteous 7/28/2006

I just used One Big Man to move my household effects into a shipping container to go overseas. When I first called, I got lots of good advice and help on the phone from Wolfgang. He really knew a lot about container packing! Then I had three of the best, smartest, most sweet and helpful young men work with me and my husband on the chaotic day of our move. They were so hard-working and so non-macho at the same time - a rare combo. I have never had less stress from the movers - the move was difficult enough and these three made it easier and lowered my anxiety considerably. THANK YOU Alex, Ben and Ezra (alpha order)!!!!!! Pros: Courtesy, Efficiency, Professionalism more


Let's face it, moving stinks. But these gents are absolute gems clearing the air of some of that moving day stench. From the initial phone call right through to the follow-up the day after, they want to make you happy. My crew was on time, fast, friendly, personable, polite, careful, ... did I mention fast :-) ? They provided wardrobe boxes, blankets and plastic wrap, plus I had an additional stop making organizing my move more difficult for them. But no complaints from these guys, just a big ""no problem,"" with a smile. And the price was extremely reasonable. I usually use Delancey Street, but they were booked and a friend recommended Big Man and boy am I glad she did. I'll never use another company. Thanks, Big Man!!! Pros: friendly, fast, careful more

Resolved problem 7/21/2006

I had a problem with my move but was able to resolve it after speaking to a guy named Paul at One Big Man. more

Lived up to my high expectations 7/11/2006

Decided to go with these guys after reading all the glowing citysearch reviews and they definitely lived up to my expectations. The hourly rate made me a little skeptical but the two guys worked really hard and got my entire move done a lot faster than I expected. Not a single snag or annoyance throughout the whole process. I'll definitely use them in the future. Pros: friendly people, great service more

Highly Recommended 7/7/2006

We have used many movers in the past and these guys are definitely the best. From the preparation and followup to the actual move, my wife and I were very impressed. My three movers arrived promptly and were very careful with our belongings, while also moving briskly (you pay by the hour). They never ""forced"" anything and always checked on fragile items before moving them. No use of dollies (which I was skeptical of at first) protected our flooring. They were all very friendly and the move went faster than I had anticipated. We did not have a single complaint and we will definitely use them again on our next move. Highly recommended.\r Pros: Prompt, fast, careful Cons: book early, they're popular! more

Can't wait to move again! 3/11/2006

One Big Man and One Big Truck is an extraordinary outfit, providing uncommon service and execellent value. These folks are very ethical and take great pride in their work. We obtained an estimate from a large, famous moving company. The actual cost of our move with One Big Man was 40% of that estimate. All services, including shrink-wrapping and blanketing of furniture were cheerfully provided. Items that the famous movers said needed to be disassembled were moved in their assembled state with no problem and no damage. These are real nice folks too! Pros: Everything more

Outstanding!!! 3/2/2006

Before recently moving, I asked friends for moving company recommendations. The company that was recommended the most was One Big Man/One Big Truck. I ended up going with them, and I am happy to report that our move could not have gone more smoothly. I was relieved to have hired movers, because without them, I would have had to lug a large filing cabinet, a queen-sized bed, bookshelves, and forty-some boxes (half of them books) up a narrow spiral staircase in our new place. Fortunately, this was not necessary, as the movers negotiated this hurdle with grace, and strength. Best of all, they wrapped, moved and unwrapped our fragile items such as artwork with care, and they were polite and punctual throughout the move. Calling One Big Man/One Big Truck was the best move I made, and I cannot recommend their services highly enough. Pros: Professional, polite, punctual more

Best Movers!! 10/30/2005

I have experienced several moving companies in the Bay Area over the years. Luckily I've never had any disasters, but never have I had such all around excellent service. This company looks at their business as a true service and treats their customers accordingly. The guys who moved me were curteous, attentive to detail, careful with my things. They wrapped each of my pieces of furniture!! I will recommend this company and should the need arise, use them again without hesitation. more

Great, friendly service 10/28/2005

I've had the unfortunate experience of moving several times in the last 5 years within SF and have had some really bad experiences with movers. These guys were not inexpensive, but they weren't overpriced and the quality of the service far surpassed anything I've experienced with other movers including Tonka, Shamrock, and others. Pros: Efficient, Friendly, Good Value more

You get what you pay for! 8/1/2005

It's true, you can find tempting ""deals"" from other movers, but beware. One Big Man and One Big Truck is the BEST. They are timely, professional, courteous and conscientious. My husband and I just moved this past weekend and hiring these guys made a seemingly insumountable task easy! They handled our furniture with care and were very friendly and willing to work at a relentless pace. Definitely worth the money! Pros: Punctual, Good work ethic, Friendly more

LOOK NO FURTHER!!! 7/19/2005

An unbelievable find! These guys are thoroughly professional, from the first phone call to the last box. The movers were efficient, careful and about as friendly as they come. I have moved 14 times in 20 years, and One Big Man was the best. The value alone would have made them worth it; the service provided was exceptional. You will not be sorry. (Ask for Peter and Petr, they are a terrific team!) Pros: Careful, Efficient, Friendly more

Marvelous Experience! 7/19/2005

I just used these guys to help me move furniture prior to my hardwood floors getting refinished. They were punctual, professional and highly competent. I was a ""small job"", but they treated me wonderfully! I liked their pricing.... hourly rate, pro-rated to nearest quarter hour. This was NOT the case at at least one other company... who wanted to charge me an exorbitant ""minimum"". I am extremely impressed with these guys and recommend them highly. Pros: Flexible Pricing, Punctual, Experienced more
