Somerville Group Manager
Mindaugas heard about Gentle Giant from his brother, Donatas, who worked at Gentle Giant during the summer on a J-1 visa. His favorite part of working at Gentle Giant is the people, both his colleagues and the customers whom he interacts with daily. Once he started at Gentle Giant, he felt he was in the right place and decided to continue a career here because he knew it was the right fit. He believes the Gentle Giant culture - including honesty, enthusiasm, teamwork, respect and going above and beyond - brings out the best in people and are the ingredients that every Giant is made of.

Outside of work, he enjoys motorcycles and the process of fixing them. He also enjoys traveling, fishing and being with his friends and family. His parents and his brother, Donatas, live in Lithuania.

We had a crew of teen-aged boys show up for our move. They packed up our stuff and did the kind of job I'd expect for a group of kids. Boxes weren't clearly labeled, stuff like a rod from our floor lamp that they disassembled and packed has never resurfaced. You'd think they'd put it in the box with the rest of the lamp but no...Then the way they unpacked the boxes into our storage unit was kind of a mess. The reviews had me expecting more but maybe this is the best we could have gotten?

Micheal and his team of packers and movers were prompt, professional, friendly, and warm. They handled the move with incredible care and swiftness. Not only did they move 15+ boxes of extremely fragile antiques, they also moved the heaviest and most delicate furniture with the utmost care. When items were brought to the new house, they were happy to move some of the furniture that was already there out of the way and into garage. The final price was about 70% of the estimate. On top of that, we hired to piano team to move our 100 year old steinway baby grand piano. Not only did the team move the piano with great care, they pointed out a number of places where there were a few cracks that needed repair. Something we would have never noticed without the keen eye of a professional. I would absolutely recommend Gentle Giant to anyone moving!

We have used Gentle Giant for multiple moves in the past 20 years and they continue to provide the highest quality product and the best, friendliest staff. One thing we especially like is the continuity of the team. Quality, careful and very professional. They set the bar for others.

They weren't the cheapest option, but I wanted someone reliable, professional and attentive to COVID issues. They arrived slightly early, did a great job for a lot less than the estimate (I'd done a lot of prep work to try to help that) and were friendly and professional. I would definitely call them next time I move in the Boston area.

Gentle Giant was the best moving company to deal with from start to finish. The person helping initially on the phone and providing the quote provided lots of information and the quote included extra insurance for the move which was not done at all at the other companies when I called for a quote. Gentle Gian also quoted five movers and two trucks were no one else did. In the fine print, the others said that the would use one truck and three movers and would have to make two trips, which obviously takes longer.The day of the move the guys were all helpful and took good care of all of our stuff while moving it to the trucks. At the new house, the provided suggestions on where things should be placed that took into consideration things that I hadn't even thought of. Overall, the move was done about two hours ahead of what I expected.Gentle Giant was worth every penny.

I have made several moves with GG and have always been happy with their service and responsiveness. 1 star off because they ain't cheap, although to be fair I did not price shop (given my previous satisfaction) and it was a cross-country move.

Boston Moving Company Reviews


Great experience. Team was on time and loaded everything up quickly and safely. Also did a great job de assembling and re assembling the furniture.



The guys on the crew were excellent. Fast, efficient, polite, 100% professional.



Our movers were great! Funny and personable, efficient, and they moved everything safely.



The team was fantastic. Exceeded my expectations.





Great communication every step of the way. Working with an estimate led to no final surprises. The team was careful and respectful and an absolute pleasure. I have used Gentle Giant for a move last year and when we were ready to move this year I didn’t waste any time getting estimates anywhere else; Gentle Giant was my only call.

Quincy, MA Move

I moved last Monday, October 19th. Dave O., Francesco N. and Deneb S. were the movers. They were on time, wore their facial masks and ready to work. They were professional always polite and friendly. They went out of their way to make my moving experience a positive one.

My family and I have used the Gentle Giant Moving Company for our previous moves and I would definitely recommend them. They gave us the peace of mind that our belongings were handled with care.
