We were scheduled between 10 and 11am, and we informed them we needed to get them here in the morning because it was an out of state move. They did not arrive until 3pm. They did keep us updated, but since we told them we needed them to come in the morning, getting here at 3pm was disappointing. We also requested a receipt numerous times since we paid cash, and I was promised one, but never received it. Even after requesting one 4 times. They did not fill the truck completely, even though there was plenty of time for them to finish. They claimed there was not enough room, but yet we were able to fill the truck ourselves, so there was plenty of room. Every one was very friendly and careful with our stuff.

By far, the best moving company, we have ever used. They were professional, efficient & friendly. Josh & his team did an outstanding job. we would highly recommend this company.

I saw a write up in the Belleair Neighborhood magazine introducing Big Man's. We recently bought a home in Belleair and needed to move two bedroom sets to the new home from a fourth floor condo. Gave Josh a call and he provided a quote very quickly after reviewing our items, We went with them, and happy we did. I texted Josh several questions prior to day of move and Josh responded immediately. They were on time, efficient, and very careful with all our goods. Josh is professional, personable, and very easy to work with. I will use them again when I need to move some more items in the future

Very friendly and efficient -- great experience! Would highly recommend

I can't begin to tell you how GRATEFUL I was to have found your company! Everything went flawless and nothing was damaged. Your guys went the extra mile for me and they were all respectful and curtious. Although I was temporarily unable to walk and we were wrangling a 3 yr old on moving day moving across the state, we did it without a hitch! The guys were even good sports and pretended to have Elmo drive the moving truck to our new home. My daughter is still talking about Elmo driving the moving truck with the moving guys! That meant alot to her. I without a doubt believe your company will have nothing but success! Thank you so much!

Excellent job, prompt, professional and accurate on estimate. Despite our elevator stranding 4 of us and a sofa for 35-40 minutes, {thank you Josh and the fire dept. for the rescue). They went on and delivered what was already on the truck came back , waited for repairs to finish and then completed the move. No added charge for the time and extra trip. Definitely will refer and use for future work.
Thank you to the Big Mans Moving Company!!!

Big Man's Moving Company is the BEST. Josh and his crew took care of my moving needs in way less time than I imagined for a wonderful rate. The movers were kind, courteous, and efficient. I highly recommend them!

I can't say enough about this company! They were amazing and respectful and moved all of my ridiculously heavy furniture and finished down to the minute of the time quoted. I highly recommend!

I read about Big Man's Moving Company in a neighborhood newsletter, and liked what I read. When I found they could move my belongings to The Villages (from Largo area) I decided to try them. Overall, I was very satisfied. The movers were attentive to my requests and instructions and eager to cooperate. They were extremely polite. There was a little problem with the processing of my credit card for payment which impacted me slightly in a negative way, but the error was with the credit card processing company, and once I brought it to the attention of Josh, he was on it quickly to solve it, and followed through and kept in touch until it was resolved. If you want an honest, hard-working, cooperative, polite moving company, give Big Man's Moving a try!

Josh and his crue moved us from Orlando FL to Tampa FL. They did a spectacular job. They were very efficient and took excellent care of our belongings. We would highly recommend them to everyone.

Did You Know

Question With the partial deregulation of the trucking industry in 1980 by the Motor Carrier Act, trucking companies increased. The workforce was drastically de-unionized. As a result, drivers received a lower pay overall. Losing its spotlight in the popular culture, trucking had become less intimate as some unspoken competition broke out. However, the deregulation only increased the competition and productivity with the trucking industry as a whole. This was beneficial to the America consumer by reducing costs. In 1982 the Surface Transportation Assistance Act established a federal minimum truck weight limits. Thus, trucks were finally standardized truck size and weight limits across the country. This was also put in to place so that across country traffic on the Interstate Highways resolved the issue of the 'barrier states'.

Question

In 1938, the now-eliminated Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) enforced the first Hours of Service (HOS) rules. Drivers became limited to 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period. At this time, work included loading, unloading, driving, handling freight, preparing reports, preparing vehicles for service, or performing any other duty in relation to the transportation of passengers or property.
 
The ICC intended for the 3-hour difference between 12 hours of work and 15 hours on-duty to be used for meals and rest breaks. This meant that the weekly max was limited to 60 hours over 7 days (non-daily drivers), or 70 hours over 8 days (daily drivers). With these rules in place, it allowed 12 hours of work within a 15-hour period, 9 hours of rest, with 3 hours for breaks within a 24-hour day.

Question

The FMCSA has established rules to maintain and regulate the safety of the trucking industry. According to FMCSA rules, driving a goods-carrying CMV more than 11 hours or to drive after having been on duty for 14 hours, is illegal. Due to such heavy driving, they need a break to complete other tasks such as loading and unloading cargo, stopping for gas and other required vehicle inspections, as well as non-working duties such as meal and rest breaks. The 3-hour difference between the 11-hour driving limit and 14 hour on-duty limit gives drivers time to take care of such duties. In addition, after completing an 11 to 14 hour on duty period, the driver much be allowed 10 hours off-duty.

Question The industry intends to both consumers as well as moving companies, this is why there are Ministers of Transportation in the industry. They are there to set and maintain laws and regulations in place to create a safer environment. It offers its members professional service training and states the time that movers have been in existence. It also provides them with federal government representation and statistical industry reporting. Additionally, there are arbitration services for lost or damaged claims, publications, public relations, and annual tariff updates and awards. This site includes articles as well that give some direction, a quarterly data summary, and industry trends.

Question Heavy trucks. A cement mixer is an example of Class 8 heavy trucks. Heavy trucks are the largest on-road trucks, Class 8. These include vocational applications such as heavy dump trucks, concrete pump trucks, and refuse hauling, as well as ubiquitous long-haul 6×4 and 4x2 tractor units. Road damage and wear increase very rapidly with the axle weight. The axle weight is the truck weight divided by the number of axles, but the actual axle weight depends on the position of the load over the axles. The number of steering axles and the suspension type also influence the amount of the road wear. In many countries with good roads, a six-axle truck may have a maximum weight over 50 tons (49 long tons; 55 short tons).
