Office Moves

Reserve Storage

Our company recently completed an office move handled by Big Foot Moving & Storage, Inc. Our experience was excellent and I would strongly recommend Big Foot to other companies in need of movers. Mike Bavuso, President, was involved in the operation from start to finish: planning, moving, and follow-up. Every member of his staff was careful, considerate, and very capable. They made sure each item was placed in its appropriate location, and were patient when we made changes. Mike, and Big Foot Moving, made every effort to please us. The company handled a difficult job very well, and we would certainly use their services again.
