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.

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.

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!
