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.

Gentle Giant helped move our son to his first apartment by receiving multiple orders from vendors and shipments "from mom", storing it all, and then bringing everything to the apartment on the appointed move-in day. Everybody was great to work with! No question but that we will turn to Gentle Giant again in the future!

Chez, Patricio and Julian are very professional and friendly. The moving service they provided was fast and efficient. They helped us pack up our house and move many boxes to storage while our house was being renovated. They moved our stuff back into the house with the same professionalism! I would definitely recommend them and would use them again!

I have only the very best things to say about our experience with Gentle Giant. It was a large move, so we have 6 movers and each of them was absolutely amazing. Professional, kind, fun, efficient, well-mannered, and comfortable to be around all while keeping everything neat and tidy. The actual cost came in well under their estimate which was appreciated. You will be pleased and impressed if you make your mover choice Gentle Giant.

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.

Movers were extremely professional as well as friendly. They were careful, and there was no damage anywhere.

Customer service representatives on the phone were responsive and conscientious. All of my concerns were addressed, and I was called back reliably when the situation arose. Additionally, GG was able to accommodate my move, even at short notice.
