Big Lake Movers Reviews
This company is wonderful and I can’t thank Mach and his guys enough for helping us out in a pinch!! Sam and Omar did an incredible job helping me move my late grandmother’s furniture. They were friendly and professional and sweet. They were flexible and accommodating. The whole process was easy and they scheduled the move in less than 24 hours. I called several other companies and couldn’t find anyone who could help (and none of them have even called me back yet) until I called Big Lake Movers. I hired them because they had great reviews and now I’m joining the choir. They are careful, compassionate and courteous movers. And when they are moving precious items, there’s nothing more wonderful than knowing those things are in good hands. Thanks again for all your help guys!!!
Moved out of our house in May into a storage unit using Big Lake Movers with Anthony and Jeremiah as our expert movers and were so happy to see them again to move us out of the storage unit into our new home! They are fast, careful, friendly, and willing to go the extra mile to help. Thank you Big Lake Movers, Anthony and Jeremiah, you guys are fantastic!!
One word characterizes our experience with Big Lake Movers: exemplary. After receiving a good price to load a pod bound for southern California, Nate and Gates entered our home friendly and ready to work. I was pleasantly surprised with the speed in which they loaded our belongings and their expertise. My husband’s first words to me upon observing them was, “These guys are good. They know their stuff!” We highly recommend this company and couldn’t be happier with the way they conducted themselves from start to finish. Many thanks guys!!
Mach and the others did an excellent job of packing and loading! I would recommend this crew!…Thanks Guys!
I highly recommend Big Lake Movers. Their price was very good. On the day of the mover they worked fast to load up all our belongings into their truck. They were very courteous and pleasant. Did I mention they were fast? When they got to the new place they were right back to work. It was great not having to lift a finger. They moved all our things in with no damage!
Amazing experience. I recommend this service to friends or anyone considering moving!! It reduced the stress of moving…Very professional & friendly.

5 . Does it cost more to move my office or my home?
This depends on a few factors, such as sq. footage, travel distance from your old and new place, and what type of items you’re moving. A bigger place most likely consists of more things, which would take more time and more movers to efficiently wrap, pack, and load items onto a moving truck. Depending on the quantity of items and how large some of them are, more than one truck may be necessary as well.
Additionally, if you have really heavy or awkward items, like pianos, or the need for disassembly and reassembly of items, extra movers on hand may be required for safe handling.
