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.

Couldn’t have been happier with using them! They were quick, professional, friendly and took extra care of every little thing. Our original quote was off and we had way more than they thought but they fixed it immediately and still got everything done by calling in an extra crew with another truck. Not to mention it was 2 degrees out all day but they never stopped, complained and showed us anything but great customer service. Thanks Sam for the constant check ins and for running a great move!

Gentle Giant moved me into a condo in 2005, and out to my new place in April 2021.Both moves were done with care by a team of professionals. My dealings with Jackie O’Toole were very complete and executed with good humor.Tip: be as organized as you can, and you’ll save time and money.

I have had to move three times in the past five years. Each time I've moved I've used Gentle Giant. Every single time their staff has gone above and beyond and I never regretted the decision. My most recent move is no different. I ordered their pack and ship package, didn't need to lift a finger and everything was delivered to my new place without any damage or hassle whatsoever. The staff involved were always accommodating, asking me up front where I wanted something at the destination, and after everything was done, confirming if I wanted anything adjusted afterwards. Huge shout out to Luke, Adam, Greg and Hunter for making this a seamless experience, and shout out to John for coordinating it all.One detail I did observe during the move that I wanted to bring up: Gentle Giant is the kind of company that cares about their staff, and their staff care about each other. More than once during the move I observed the above movers giving each other tips and tricks for how to better handle moving furniture, disassembling things, reassembling things, etc, without a hint of judgement, snark, jealousy or disregard. Everybody worked really well together and openly took feedback from one another in a way that showed they were team players, and I dare say there are some natural born leaders in the bunch that handled my move.A++, I highly recommend Gentle Giant for your moves.

This is the 3rd time we have used Gentle Giant in the past 15 years, we have one more move to go with them. The whole team-inhouse and at the move site-are knowledgeable, pleasant, focused on the work to be done, and do the job right. They are currently storing our goods (this is the 2nd time we have stored with them) until a replacement house is purchased. We know our items are in good hands.

I made a similar move earlier, so I could compare good and bad. Gentle Giant allowed to reschedule several times, was very helpful with selecting options and planning, the move itself was well done and very, very fast. Some movers pad the time etc. by being slow, getting "stuck in traffic" and are nowhere as helpful as Gentle Giant.

Very very happy with my move. Gentle giant took care of everything and checked in periodically before each move. I had my stuff on storage for a month before moving back in. The guys both times were amazing and took such good care of everything. Very professional from start to finish and nothing went missing or broke. Would definitely use Gentle Giant for my next move.

We have used Gentle Giant for multiple moves over the last 15 years (I used another company once, and that was a mistake). Each time they have done a terrific job estimating the cost of the move, and then have been punctual, careful, polite and professional in the execution of the move. Interactions with the office staff and coordinators are as close to painless as you could hope for; the crew chiefs who coordinate the onsite activities (packing and moving) have a really nice way about them, commanding the respect of their team and the homeowner; and, honestly, each individual "giant" (some of whom really are GIANT) is expert, pleasant and seems to really care about doing his or her best. Couldn't recommend them more highly.

The guys did a great job for our 20 mile move. We had two flights of tight stairs in a crowded city location and they handled it well. They were super fast but also very careful. I would highly recommend.

I cannot say enough amazing things about Gentle Giant! Are they perhaps a bit expensive to use? Okay, sure but you get what you pay for, honestly. Their communication before hand was impeccable, they were right on time, the guys were friendly and smart, and it all happened so fast! They cared about what I cared about, nothing was harmed, and they were funny, too! Luke, Nerijus, and Orion are absolute rock stars! George and Jackie on the phone are seriously amazing people, too!

Best moving company! I was so happy with the entire process. Eric and Steve were great movers. They worked so quickly and barely took any break although I insisted they would! Not a scratch on my white furniture. They were even willing to move furniture in my room around until I was satisfied with the layout. I moved from a 3 floor walk up to a one floor walk up and they were great. Would highly recommend.
