I first used Big and Gentle more than 10 years ago when I moved from one apartment to another within Manhattan. I think I was too traumatized after barely escaping a roommate-from-hell situation to remember much about the move itself. But I know my stuff was moved carefully and uber-efficiently by Alex and Adam. Alex wasn't the most talktative, which is fine by me, but he was very nice and courteous.Flash forward to 2009. I'm moving again. I wouldn't call the process *traumatic* this time, but it's sad and stressful for other reasons. I don't need any more drama. I know I'm going to look up Big and Gentle. Alex is STILL the man. He and his assistant moved me for less than $400. There were a handful of things I had trouble figuring out how to pack up, but they took care of those items (ie, tv, clothes in plastic bags) lickety split and with kindess. Also, Alex kind of sings to himself while he is lifting and moving stuff, which is endearing. I'd recommend Big and Gentle to anyone moving in NYC who doesn't want to spend an arm and a leg, and who wants efficient, reliable service.

These guys have moved me about six times over the years. They're the absolute best. I got to the point where I didn't dread moving because I knew I had the best movers in the world. I cannot recommend them more highly.

Alex and the other two guys were so fantastic I felt I owed it to them to write a review here. Just like their name, they are extremely gentle and caring (both with us and our furniture!), and very reasonably priced. And so quick! I get pretty stressed when it's time to move apartments, but Alex and the guys were so calm and efficient it calmed me right now straight away. Alex also visited us about a week before the move to look things over and supply us with boxes at a wholesale price. We're so happy to have found them, and to have had them help us move.

I have personally used these guys 4 or 5 times over the past 8 years or so, and have recommended them to probably 7-10 people.  I have been nothing but very satisfied with them, and I can say the same for everyone who I've recommended them to.I dont know exactly what there rate is at this point, but they have always been very reasonable.  I once tried slightly cheaper "starving musician" type movers, but they ended up taking smoke breaks every 15 minutes and ended up having to help them move half my furniture because they couldn't handle it.Meanwhile, Alex and his employees will literally strap a refrigerator to their backs and run up and down the stairs with it while chain smoking.I believe they have a 3 hour minimum, but every time I've used them, they've had my move done in less than the 3 hours.  I had no problem paying them for the extra time, because they work so quickly and efficiently and I know other movers would take twice as long.I cannot attest to whether they are insured or bonded (I didn't think they were, but maybe they are?), but they were always extra careful.  If I needed to move something like a grand piano, I would maybe consider hiring someone who specializes in that type of move, but for your basic apt to apt move, I don't know anyone who has found better movers for the price.

A friend used Big and Gentle to move two grand pianos between spaces in New York, and being a musician, I needed both a piano mover and a general mover for my recent move.  Being a musician, I could only afford to pay for one mover instead of two separate companies.  Most quotes I got from the best-reviewed moving companies were almost $500 just for my belongings, and all refused to move an upright piano (understandable, as those beasts are still wicked heavy).  Hmm...I was looking at almost $1,000 to move a not-so-amazing piano and a modest amount of stuff.  Plus, everyone was booked for my move date over a week away.Worried, I called Alex at Big and Gentle.  When I asked for a quote, he told me $120 per hour for THREE men (others only supplied 2 for more than that price), and that they could move everything with no problems.  Nervous, I asked what forms of payment he accepted.  "Cash or check; if check, you make out to me."  ""What's your name?" I asked."Alex." [moments of silence]"Um, yes, but do you have a last name, Alex?"The day of my move, Alex showed up at my door: the man must be in his sixties, a little bit taller than I and is, quite frankly, massively ripped.  The man looks a little bit like those anti-aging ads you see in in-flight magazines.  Dang!  Anyhow, he introduced himself, took a quick look around and said, "I send my men up and be right back."  In a minute, he came back with an extremely tall man who introduced himself with "Hello! I am also Alex!" and a shorter, silent man who smiled and started loading boxes on his back.  These massively strong dudes were all old enough to be my Dad, and proceeded to empty my apartment in record time.  Tall Alex saw my piano and asked, "You are musician? Professional??"  I nodded.  He asked who my favorite pianist was, and it turns out he is a rabid classical music fan with a distinct passion for Schubert which he developed during his time serving in a Russian prison for trying to escape the former USSR.To make a hilarious and long story short, these guys are inredible.  They are nice, very fast, let me ride in the truck to Queens with them ("Ha! You are riding between two Alex!"), and the WHOLE move cost me $480 plus tip.  The kicker: when I asked Alex #1 for his card so that I may recommend him to other piano-bearing friends, he gave me a modestly stark white card that proclaims only:"ALEX."
