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.

Excellent experience with Gentle Giant. They packed us up, stored our items and moved us a few weeks later. The crew was incredibly courteous, careful, and through. Their goal was to be sure that things were done right and they took time and care to be sure that everything was where we wanted it to be

I've hired Gentle Giant 4 times for moving myself and my family. Each time, they have been fantastic. They were very helpful making sure we were prepared, and their quotes were very accurate. They were prompt and professional on move day, and went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we were set up properly. I'd certainly hire them again and strongly recommend them to anyone.

The Gentle Giant team was courteous, patient and very professional. The team took care of all my moving needs, including getting a tricky piece of furniture in a small space. I will recommend GG to all my friends and family for their moving needs.

Gentle Giant moved two pieces of furniture for us up and down a very tight hallway and around sharp corners. They did an amazing job - no nicks or dents in the walls or furniture. Done in just under an hour. Super friendly and nice. I remember when it was just a guy and a truck - love to see how they have grown!

A little bit on the expensive side, but overall incredibly well worth it. Gentle Giant showed up and took care of every little piece of my move in downtown Boston; they delivered me boxes and packing material way ahead of the move date, showed up right on time, figured all of the details around moving stuff between my old third floor apartment and my new third floor apartment, in old, weird Boston buildings. They are also the only moving company I found that offered to take care of the parking permits as part of the move, which is a pain to deal with when trying to figure out how to park a moving truck in downtown Boston. There weren't any issues or hiccups, and everything went smoothly and finished in under the expected amount of time, and all I had to do was get myself from my old apartment to my new one. They even purchased back the packing materials I didn't end up using. Overall I definitely consider Gentle Giants to be the top-of-the-line moving company in Boston, and will absolutely use them again.

I had a wonderful experience with Gentle Giant and they have earned me as a customer for life. My move ended up having a lot of complications in terms of what I needed and when, and Gentle Giant was EXTRAORDINARY in how they helped me. They accommodated all my changes, they set up provisional backup dates in case (as was looking likely) there was a last minute need to delay the move. On packing day an d move day, they were prompt, the team worked insanely hard (literally running around), they were incredibly friendly. Everything was carefully wrapped/packaged, including some unusual items that needed special care. They aren't the cheapest option, but in my mind it was worth the small extra money. The quote they gave me was quite accurate. The quality of the service was exceptional, everyone was super friendly, and most importantly in my case - since I had a lot of other stressful things going on it was GREAT that I could 100% rely on them to help me out and be flexible to my changing needs.
