Furniture Moving and Heavy Lifting

Great movers. We moved a house of six (two adults and four kids) to a new house. I spoke with Mike about the move and our needs. His team went beyond my expectations to complete the job. They were able to get my peloton treadmill (required disassembly and re-assembly) and a queen purple mattress up the stairs in addition to a washer and dryer. All of these were tough items to move in addition to the quantity of items moved. I would trust them again to move my items safely and securely. The team was respectful and efficient. I appreciate their hard work. Thanks!

Local Moving (under 50 miles)

Mike and the crew did a fabulous job with my move. They took care of what other companies had called a two day job in one, worked nonstop for 8 hours, and treated my furniture with real respect. And they did it for a very reasonable price. 4 guys for 9.5 hours about $2000 for a 4 room house partial pack, load, and unload. Less than half of what Two Men and a Truck wanted. They arrived early in the morning and worked all day. They helped to pack boxes carefully and worked on taking care of delicate items. They wrapped each item in a blanket and wrap. They both self motivated and took direction well. They were always polite and courteous, and didn’t need to be given directions more than once. When we arrived they unloaded, and organized my home, laying out things as we asked without complaint. It was the easiest move I’ve ever had. The only issue with my experience is that I hired them for a move in Milwaukee when they are based out of Madison, and, as Mike told me up front, they charge from when they leave their base. That was my mistake and honestly? The 90 minute drive time price was still worth the work they did. Thanks Mike and Big Dog. Recommended. Would hire again.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    We offer the best prices in the Madison area while providing the best customer service. We charge $120/hour from the time we leave our base until the time we get back. This is the most straight forward way to price a move. This way our customers get exactly what they pay for. There is no hidden fees or extra fuel costs and myself and our crew of smiling professionals always hustle and get the job done as quickly as possible. Fitness has always been a big part of my life and I enjoy making the moves into a workout. We also offer a 5% discount to senior citizens, Police Officers, Firefighters, and first responders.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    It's very simple. I find out what they need help with and then I tell them about our service such as what we charge and what makes us different and from there I either set up a free in home consultation if it is a large project or if there is specialty items involved or typically we just set a date and time for the move.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    My education is on the job training in the moving industry. I have worked for several moving companies that all do things differently and had their own strengths and weaknesses, which I learned from and formed my own ideas on how things should be done. I have taken part in well over 1,000 moves of every different kind. I know all of the ins and outs of the business including how to properly and safely pack a truck, how to secure specialty items such as gun safes, pianos, or glass, and how to get the job done as efficiently as possible. Over my 6 years in the business I feel that the most important aspects of providing a great moving service are excellent customer service, professionalism, and hard work/efficiency.
