Customer Reviews

I had a great experience. Bravo!

I had a great experience when Big Win Moving helped us with our recent move to Malibu. Despite the stairs and the uneven walkways, Kevin, Adam and Brent did an amazing job moving all of our furniture and family heirlooms to the new place. Bravo!

I would definitely hire them again!

These guys are amazing!! I would highly recommend them. They showed up in a timely manner. Since we had so many things to pack, Theodore, Justin and William had to find ways to creatively pack and load our items. Fortunately, they were able to get everything to fit in one truck load. I would definitely hire them again! Thank you Big Win Moving for making my move a successful one!

Prompt, quick, careful movers

Great team of movers. They were prompt, quick, careful and willing to accommodate a request when possible. Once I showed the guys what was going and what was staying, Bob, William and Steve were quick to begin wrapping and preparing things to be loaded. The next thing I knew, we were at our new house watching them unload our furniture. Big Win Moving did a great job.

These guys know how to load a truck with maximum efficiency!

I had the pleasure of being moved by Vincent, Henry and John from Big Win Moving. They were really nice, professional, very careful with all my things including my china cabinet. I didn't think I had that much to move until we started packing! WOW. Too much stuff. Thankfully these guys know how to load a truck with maximum efficiency!
