Mindaugas heard about Gentle Giant fro 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.
Careful, reliable, and easy to work with. They were great.

The two gentle giants who arrived were: on time, polite, professional, careful, kind, efficient, articulate, and especially STRONG!Their attention to detail in the wrapping and caring for my personal items as the truck was loaded and then unloaded and gently placed was astounding.Amazing to behold!
15:48 12 Nov 19
If I could give 10 stars I would!I have had the opportunity to work with Gentle Giant twice in the past two years. Because of the excellent, respectful care of our stuff and the incredible “can do” attitude ( our new condo is on the 11th & 12th floor of city building that has a tiny, two person elevator!) I will be a fan forever! Thank you!

Gentle Giant was awesome in helping my wife and I move. We had to move all of our stuff out of our apartment while we waited for our house to be finished. They have their own storage facilities so we didn't have the hassle of setting up storage somewhere else and getting our stuff unloaded into it which was wonderful. The moving crew who took our stuff into storage was amazing and so was the crew who brought our stuff from their storage facility to our new house. Both crews worked very quickly and efficiently but respectful of our items. Fragile items were wrapped up well. We had to change dates a few times as things were in flux and they were very accommodating. I liked that every one of our boxes, items, pieces of furniture, etc were individually tagged with labels and a picture was taken. After the move into storage I got a receipt which included a picture and description of every item. It helped alleviate some of the stress of having all my possessions away in storage for over a month. Overall it was a great experience!
12:11 05 Nov 19
The pick-up was delayed by 1h at the time for the 2h slot I booked. However, the guys just made it in time to finish the job. I wished I was called and informed that the delay was happening instead I called in and the contact connected with the drivers/movers. The delivery was on a different date, which was very smooth with a different set of movers. They assembled my furniture quickly and made recommendation in regards to my wardrobe which did not fit up the hallway and couldn't be taken apart. It was taken to gentle giant and discarded. I liked that gentle giant also is able to store items which makes moving less of a hassle but also may cost more since the items have to be transported back to gentle giant and then to the new location and storage which accrues extra costs. Overall the movers were all friendly and knew what they were doing. I would recommend the service, which is a little more expensive than other places would charge.
22:17 04 Nov 19
the movers did a great job! they were quick and did not delay. The customer service before the move was also really good! the only complaint i have is with their quoting system. I was quoted a low of 450 and a high of 600, i ended up paying over $900 for my move. I stressed before hand that i had a difficult couch and i feel as though i was under quoted to confirm my business. I cannot stress enough how great the movers themselves were! I just think that the company should be more upfront and accurate with their estimations.
18:59 04 Nov 19
Movers were polite, careful and punctual. Took time to problem-solve an oversized bed issue!
18:02 04 Nov 19
Great experience from start to finish. Highly recommended.
16:05 04 Nov 19
Everyone is so helpful, as well as on time, efficient, and nice!
14:45 04 Nov 19
They are worth every penny. I needed to move priceless and sentiment items for which each item was delivered with utter care and safety. Their storage services are fantastic as well for which I used over the past 5 years. There is no better team in town!
19:50 31 Oct 19
We have moved about a dozen times, including coast to coast and USA to and from Canada. We have been lucky as all of those moves have gone pretty well. All of those moves involved nationally known and respected companies. How does Gentle Giant rate versus those ... As our #1 best mover! From beginning to end they were best: initial estimate; repacking; loading; storage; on schedule delivery; perfect unpacking. They are the best.
17:17 31 Oct 19
Used Gentle Giant to move out of an apartment and into a house. They were professional on the phone, in delivering moving materials, and when they arrived on-site on moving day. The crew were efficient and communicated at every step from wrapping furniture to haul away to placement of furniture on move-in day. I highly recommend their services if you are looking for a hassle-free moving experience.
17:27 24 Oct 19
I couldn't have been happier with the entire experience. Very professional and friendly folks across the board. They did a great job on our move-out and move-in. Highly recommend.
20:42 22 Oct 19
The men were on time, helpful, polite, full of energy, flexible, and humorous - laughed at all my dumb jokes. I was immensly appreciative of their competent orchestration of our move. Best team ever!
19:19 22 Oct 19
15:25 22 Oct 19
I hired Gentle Giant to deliver a large piece of furniture that Room & Board wasn't able to deliver. From the initial communication with Carrie to the deliver, my experience was smooth. The delivery team was positively thoughtful and professional. I was so impressed. Paul was a great lead and Sarunas matched Paul’s professionalism. I would highly recommend them and will hire them again when I need.
14:17 22 Oct 19
Very efficient movers who were extremely professional and careful with everything. Very helpful and friendly staff that were always reachable by phone or via email in the days ahead of my move from Boston to NH. I definitely recommend them to everyone!
18:43 17 Oct 19
The Gentle Giant team was awesome! I had a great experience communicating with Amandalyn and Bambi, as well as working with the two movers. It was seamless, easy, and organized. I will definitely hire movers for big moves, always. It saved me physical and emotional stress. Thank you!
22:13 16 Oct 19
We have used Gentle Giant several times over the past 25+ years. Our most recent experience in June 2019 was excellent as usual. Our crew was prompt, efficient, knowledge and personable. They were very easy to work with. We had the Giants pack for us this time, and not one thing was broken or scratched -- in 2 full trucks of our belongings. I highly recommend Gentle Giant. They are true professionals.
01:32 16 Oct 19
I cannot say enough good things about Gentle Giant. Their entire staff was incredible from start to finish. The coordination of the move was professional, prompt, and flexible. I had to change our delivery date a few times because of our housing, and the person I was working with (I was assigned to a single contact person at the company, which was so great since she knew all of the details of my move) was so understanding and helpful. The movers themselves were excellent as well. The first crew was so so hardworking, and packed up all of our things carefully and efficiently. The delivery crew was equally hardworking and friendly, and worked with me to make sure that everything was where I needed it to be. I highly highly recommend them and am so thankful to everyone I worked with for helping to make moving (which is inherently stressful) so much more manageable. Thank you so much for all of your hard work!
20:34 15 Oct 19
I had a great experience with Gentle Giant Moving company. The movers arrived on time, were very polite, and got everything done quickly and efficiently. I also appreciated the fact that when they sent me a quote initially, it was very detailed and specified everything they would charge for, unlike most other moving companies I requested quotes from. The only downside was that I had to pay for a 4 hour minimum move, instead of the actual time it took for the move, because I changed the move time from the afternoon to the morning of August 31. But they did warn me about this before I made the change.
21:40 11 Oct 19
I cannot over-state how awesome this moving company is. From the booking process through the final walkthrough, you won't be disappointed. Erica, Domenic, G, Lucas, Mark and last not but not least, Lightning Lauren, treated us, our cats, and our stuff with the utmost caution and respect. Thanks for making one of the most stressful events in a person's life as stress free as possible!PS.. how could i forget to mention my move was during a high wind and rain "nor-easter" and they even had to hoist a large item [ not fitting in the stairwell ]f the outside. They were undaunted!
02:56 11 Oct 19
Hard working guys
16:54 10 Oct 19
Great experience with the moving team and the coordinators. They were able to accommodate a change to my move at the very last minute on one of the busiest days (Sept 1). Actual movers were super fast, kind, and safe. I'd recommend them again and again!
14:38 09 Oct 19
Amazing service. Gentle Giant Moving Company has made our recent move very smooth and without stress. We have chosen the pack-unpack service and basically sat back and had the moving done in an amazingly careful way. The personnel was professional, friendly and very experienced. We did not even had scratch on one of our furniture during move or had glass broken. I strongly suggest this company if you are moving. Amazing team, amazing service.
14:36 09 Oct 19
Amazing experience. Couldn't have gone better. Everyone I interacted with was professional and efficient. We had to change our move date and it was no problem. The final cost was under the estimate which was really nice. Highly recommend.
00:33 03 Oct 19
Great movers, just expensive
08:22 29 Sep 19
17:26 19 Sep 19
Used them for my very large house move and they were awesome to work with at every stage - responsive, patient, polite, helpful. Took a lot of stress out of an otherwise stressful situation. I would definitely use them again and strongly recommend them.
21:40 16 Sep 19
Had a great experience with Gentle Giant movers! We had quite a complicated move in Boston, moving 2 apartments into one apartment with two floors- the top one inaccessible by stairs, on the busiest weekend of the year. We were especially concerned since we were not able to be there during the weekend of the move, so were very much relieved seeing how reliable these guys were.Different crews worked on our move in and move out and every single person was super professional, resourceful, respectable and indeed- gentle! Every item, box and piece of furniture arrived into their right spot, by hoisting to the second floor or after a quick assembly by the skillful team. Would trust this company again in a heartbeat!
18:59 05 Sep 19
This is an updated review:The test of any great company is how it performs when things don’t go according to plan.They forgot to put the piano on the truck. Most companies would say sorry and then try to redeliver whenever it was convenient for them. Not Gentle Giant - they apologized and immediately organized a second truck to deliver the piano the very next day.The amount of logistical overhead necessary to make that happen is substantial. The company was extremely polite and professional and remedied the mistake quickly.It is always a privilege to work with a company that truly cares about their customers.Thank you for remedying the situation and doing your very best to deliver my piano on time. I will recommend you to everyone in the future.Fantastic job.

If there was an option for 6 stars, I would choose it and then add another 4 stars. And then I would multiply that by infinity. For the uninitiated, moving in the Boston area is a never ending nightmare from which you feel you will never wake. That being said, after I was initially screwed over by a smaller company and submitted an estimate through Gentle Giant's website, they almost immediately called me, had an estimate, and provided someone to guide me through their process. Their estimate was thorough, fair, and abundantly transparentThe day of the move, Dave and his team showed up 15 minutes EARLY and proceeded to assuage any concerns or worries of mine while they essentially sprinted up and down stairs to bring things to the truck. They were both swift and effective on the move out and just as impressive on the move-in at my new residence. Their efficiency and thoughtfulness can only be described as a benevolent gazelles - deftly maneuvering all manners of stairs, obstacles, and changing whims.Very deep in in my now-weary bones, I feel... No, I know that this company saved both my sanity and relationship. I cannot recommend Gentle Giant Moving Company enough for the humanitarian acts they regularly enact on behalf of the citizenry of Boston.They should be awarded the highest civilian medal(s) of honor and their likenesses projected on the Garden until the sun extinguishes and we are then, and only then, relieved of the existential rot that is moving in the Boston metro area. Gentle Giant Moving Company is a beacon of light and goodness in the violent death-bog made of broker fees and Storrow traffic. They are worthy every darn dollar and then some.
13:58 01 Sep 19
The best moving storage company !! honest ,competent and respectful of personal items.
16:16 31 Aug 19
Moved my ridiculously large TV and stuff years ago and were awesome about it!
19:33 26 Aug 19
Amazing service!! Prompt, quick and professional.. best money I’ve ever spent.
19:30 22 Aug 19
You were highly recommended by a close friend. Will definitely use you again if necessary. Thank you!
19:27 22 Aug 19
My husband and I have moved several times over the years, and these are hands down the nicest movers that we've hired. They were on-time, polite and very detailed and careful boxing up our household. We will definitely use them again.
13:49 22 Aug 19
Excellent to work with on our recent stressful move. We had uncertainties in our move date and Gentle Giant kept us calm with options for us - they were always optimistic and helpful. On move day, they did EVERYTHING and did it efficiently. They encouraged my wife and I to just enjoy entertaining our baby. I would definitely use them again, it was the most relaxing moving day experience I have had (and this is with a baby!). We felt very well-taken care of.
02:24 21 Aug 19
I can't say enough good, about Gentle Giant !! from the start, Bambi helped navigate our moving needs !! When you're overwhelmed and not sure where or how to begin !? Bambi to the rescue! Her communication is beyond excellent! She sent us , one heck of a team the day of the move with crew chief, Szolt at the helm ! He guided his crew of 6 , for 11 consecutive hours , on the hottest day in August! Forgive I don't remember the name of each crew member.. but , I can tell you each individual showed professionalism with a smile ! They moved us from a 4 story home with winding stairs , as if it were effortless. All our boxes and furniture made it 100% intact to our new location! We couldn't be more impressed by Gentle Giant. The estimate was black & white.. no hidden costs ! (As I've experienced with other moving companies )from A- Z Gentle giant gets 5 stars +. I highly recommended anyone looking to move! We are using their service again this Thursday!! A challenging move ! In which, Bambi has accommodated us at every turn !! Thank you Gentle Giant !!

The Gentle Giant team was great. They took care of everything. I really didn’t need to lift a finger. I would highly recommend.
13:22 20 Aug 19
Very kind and efficient movers. Took two movers less than a half hour to pack up my truck and they even packed up my miscellaneous items. Best and easiest moving experience ever.
13:44 18 Aug 19
Gentle Giants lived up to their name and reputation. Thoughtful, careful, enthusiastic, and competent --- these describe the team that moved our things. They were especially helpful about getting every piece right where we wanted, even if that meant a couple of tries. Can't commend them enough!
17:24 16 Aug 19
Great service. Movers were very polite and professional.
05:18 15 Aug 19
They were excellent! Would definitely choose them again if I were to move!
20:09 12 Aug 19
I loved my moving team and I will use them again. The only reason they got 4 instead of 5 stars is that 1) they applied insurance without asking me first and 2) they broke a piece of furniture and tried to hide it or at least were not up front about it. I later found the broken piece placed on the floor, several feel away and on the other side of the furniture where I wouldn’t notice it until they were gone. It would have been impossible for the piece to find its way there accidentally. Since the broken piece was at least left for me it was able to be fixed by my handiman so it wasn’t a big deal, but in the future I will be sure to check every piece very carefully head to toe before signing off on the move. Overall the team was great and very nice and very thorough.
19:46 08 Aug 19
The team was great! Dependable and very hard workers! I would hire GG again without hesitation.

12:25 31 Jul 19
My belongings were in Gentle Giants Somerville Storage Facility for five years, once or twice I visited them to check or manage the storage, they were extremely kind and helped me out sort my things or look for them. Lately when I decided to move my belongings from there, I was told that they had been moved my container to Wilmington, MA. That was not so business-like of them and I feel they should have informed me before moving the container to another storage.
15:16 30 Jul 19
They helped us move things within the same house- the minimum window of time was enough and the crew was friendly and very capable.
21:46 29 Jul 19
great care to move our furniture into storage for a major house renovation-- so glad we hired Gentle Giant! They were familiar with the storage facility and helped to pack everything away carefully.
18:06 28 Jul 19
This was the best moving experience - very professional, friendly, end-to-end service; from booking, questions, to move day and completion. I would HIGHLY recommend GG Moving Company to anyone that wants a stress free (almost delightful, the moving services were so friendly and polite and competent) moving experience. (or :-) as stress free as moving can be)
17:29 26 Jul 19
Excellent service, follow-up, fantastic crew … timely, courteous and very professional; highly recommend Gentle Giant for any job large or small
17:00 26 Jul 19
I love these guys! The crew loaded the trucks on Thursday and unloaded the trucks on Friday, after my closings on both houses. They were non-stop, hardworking, so polite and personable. Sirunas, Dennis, Jacob, Schneider, and ?Colin or ?Connor were truly outstanding. All my items were handled carefully and professionally; all requests were taken care of quickly and professionally. Since I moved from a 4-bedroom colonial to a 1-bedroom ranch, they organized the multitude of bins put in the basement in easily accessible aisles, all the while patiently guiding me with sage expertise. Moving is often a nightmare, but they made it bearable. I am so grateful to these gentlemen! Thank you, thank you, thank you for a smooth move!
14:05 26 Jul 19
The Gentle Giant team was friendly and FAST. They moved us out of our 2 BR apartment and into our new home in under 4 hours. If you do all the packaging before they arrive, they can get things done extremely efficiently. I highly recommend!

We have used Gentle Giant for several moves in the past 20 years. We are thrilled with them as movers. From pianos to my art work and sculptures. Prompt friendly. Very careful about precious furniture and family heirlooms. Ready willing and able. A really positive experience. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone anywhere in America. These are the people search no more.
13:10 24 Jul 19
These guys were fantastic! Showed up on time, professional and quick! Our team of David, Cooper, Matt and Owen worked their tails off, took care of our items and came in under the estimate. Can't say enough about how smoothly this move went...and we were moving out of our home of 25 years! I would not hesitate to recommend them.
17:05 23 Jul 19
Crew was very professional. Explained in detail the steps of the move. They handled our furniture like it was there own.Entie team was very outing and personable.
15:25 23 Jul 19
00:55 08 Jul 19
We used Gentle Giant for a local move - it was a large move that included packing and overnight storage. I cant say enough great things about the Gentle Giant team - Jeff was an outstanding Coordinator and each of the teammates did a fantastic job of getting us from one location to another - thank you SO MUCH to Jeff, Lukas, Richard, Alex, Scott, Sean, Will, Sebastian and Dennis. They were knowledgeable, energetic, thoughtful, pleasant and an all-around, all-star crew. I would 100% recommend them to anyone! Not to mention, they were great with my kids and made the move so much less stressful. You have a great crew at Gentle Giant!

An outstanding moving company that cares about the items to be moved. Careful and methodical about each item moved. I can highly recommend this moving company. There isn't a problem that they can't handle.
19:58 17 May 19
Fast service, caring and cooperative staff and crew. Professional treatment of our belongings and fair prices.
21:47 13 May 19
18:10 08 May 19
Absolute pro's. Hired them to pack, move out and move in over a 3 day span - did not have 1 issue whatsoever. Very prompt, overly communicative, and came in under what the estimate was. Couldn't have had a better experience with the team that handled my move, and I'm very grateful for GG and making my move seamless.
22:21 24 Apr 19
The BEST experience. The guys had to work around cars parked in the permitted no parking zone. No complaints and they went right to work, not waiting for the car to be towed. Just an awesome, awesome move. Great work and highly recommended.
13:46 19 Apr 19
I had a wonderful experience with GG! The movers were prompt, careful and courteous. I found the office very easy to deal with. I had a quick move and they were able to address my needs including storage. I highly recommend GG!Margaret Shaheen

Beginning to end, Gentle Giant was wonderful. The coordinator, Andrea, and the entire move team on both ends led by Orion, were reliable, punctual, responsible, friendly, and trustworthy. They went out of their way to be accommodating and to make the move as stress-free as possible. Highly recommend!
02:41 02 Mar 19

Helpful, kind, and well... Gentle! I moved my 1 bedroom apartment from MA to Wisconsin and the whole process was stress-free and transparent. Highly recommend.
12:22 31 Jan 19
I was very happy with the Gentle Giant Moving Company. The customer service on the phone when I was receiving my quote and setting up the moving date was great. I had 2 movers for a job moving mostly just heavy furniture and they were efficient, timely and friendly. Also, the total at the end was even less than the quoted price which I thought was very honest and a nice surprise. I feel as though companies in the past have charged the quoted price even though the amount moved was less than expected. This was not the case with Gentle Giant. Also there was no damage to any furniture and they were able to maneuver within some odd turns and doors. Would hire them again if I were to move.
23:01 11 Jan 19
Can't say enough good things about management and the great personnel who moved us. This is the second move we've made with Gentle Giant. Would recommend them to anyone.
17:56 09 Jan 19
I needed to schedule a last minute move and Gentle Giant was able to help. The staff is efficient and responsive. I was contacted within the same day of my initial estimate request. The movers were great. Honestly, the drive from old apartment to new apartment took longer than it did for them to move the items. I hopefully won't be moving for another 3 to 4 years but when I do I will be booking with Gentle Giant.

I was delighted by the thoughtful manner in which the strong young men interacted with us during our move. The entire production was made less stressful by their helpful and professional manner. I was put at ease and watched with admiration their competent handling of our possessions and their considerate engagement with each other as a productive team.
22:31 04 Jan 19
18:43 04 Jan 19
From start to finish, Gentle Giant is the best moving company out there.
23:39 01 Jan 19
We've moved with Gentle Giant twice now, and both times their movers have been fantastic. They're professional, courteous, personable, and they know their trade. When we've had questions about how or why they were doing something in a particular way, they've always taken the time to answer them to our satisfaction, and they've also been very understanding when we want something done in a particular way. Hopefully, we won't be moving again for a long time, but if we do, we'll be calling Gentle Giant first.

They stole my collection of silver dollars. When I called them a few months later, they said they would look into it, but never resolved the issue.
22:11 13 Aug 18
I was extremely impressed with the service I received from Gentle Giant while moving my new baby grand piano into the house and moving my spinet downstairs. Ian was very responsive and accommodating during the initial setup of the move. On the day of the move Nuno, Ted, and Thomas were competent, polite, quick, efficient, and careful with the pianos. They even sprayed some WD-40 on the pedals for me before reassembling them because I noticed they were squeaky! I would NEVER trust any other mover with my pianos.
12:51 06 Aug 18
They made moving easy. Yeah, I said it, moving was easy. Couldn’t believe it.Robbie accommodated a last minute date switch and gave us an accurate estimate.The crew was early and unfortunately it thunderstormed during our move out - but it was NO problem for them.Mindaugas and Fergus were enthusiastic, professional, and remarkably efficient.They handled our items with care and were just an overall pleasure to work with.I’ve used a few moving companies, but gentle giant is the only one I’ll be using moving forward. Can’t recommend highly enough.Thanks for the hard work guys!

You know how they say moving is one of life‘s most stressful events? Not if you use Gentle Giant. These guys are impressive! They show up exactly on time; practically run their way through your house as they are packing, loading, and unloading; have amazingly positive attitudes (asking them to do something extra seems to make them happy – they seriously seem to take the approach of wanting to overdeliver on your expectations); and are super professional and efficient. I would never use another moving company after having these guys run my last several moves.

The crews have always been prompt, courteous and professional. Have used them several times for varying size moves.
20:33 26 Oct 17
Great company to deal with
16:34 25 Oct 17
Gentle Giant employs professionals. They are polite, hard working and eager to please. I would highly suggest them for your moving needs.
11:48 25 Oct 17
Premiums service moving service. It's expensive but they take care of you. They're professional and know what they're doing.

I hired Gentle Giant based on recommendations and comparing prices. They were a little higher priced than some, but not the most expensive. The crew worked hard that day - it was July, so a bit hot. The defining factor for me was the customer service. There was damage to a table and they responded right away and we came to a resolution.
15:31 02 Oct 17
Superb experience. Extremely careful and very careful. Would not consider using anyone else.
12:18 02 Oct 17
I would highly recommend Gentle Giants. Extremely professional, respectful and overall wonderful experience.

I recently had Gentle Giant at my home to do some in house moving for me.I have been using them for over 20 years, for all my moving requirementsthey are the best!from the management team to the individual movers always a pleasure to work with them
16:52 06 Sep 17
5 stars all around. I am very happy with the moving service I received from Gentle Giant crew Mindaugas, Deividas & Gelmis from start to finish. I had a very old bedroom set that was refinished and over 50yrs old and very heavy that had to be removed from a 3rd floor house and many other pieces of furniture for my move. They were very professional, courteous and pleasant. I highly recommend them and I have recommend them to my realtor, family and friends I am totally amazed at their work ethics. The Best! Thank You!
16:26 05 Sep 17
The movers were respectful, moved quickly, and were very accommodating when moving items in. While a bit pricier than I would have liked, I'm glad I went with a reputable big name moving company. Overall very smooth move and I would hire again!
12:07 05 Sep 17
Paulius and Gilson were awesome. Never seen two people move boxes and furniture so quickly and carefully. That was the smoothest moving experience I have ever had. Boston was unable to get them the parking permits in time, but they made it work, and GG refunded me the money for them.
19:03 29 Aug 17
A pleasure to work with from start (booking in Somerville) to finish (delivery in Pasadena, CA)
15:40 27 Aug 17
I called them about 5 days prior to the date I needed to move and they did it for me. Everyone was so nice and courteous, and everything came on the day, on time, without further damage (all of my things are quite old and a bit battered). Is a nice company.
21:45 23 Aug 17
14:33 20 Aug 17
They packed up my 2 bedroom house, disassembled 2 beds (king and queen) and moved 300+lbs of weights plus all other house hold items, then drove to the new house, unpacked and reassembled in 4 hours.Amazing
15:18 17 Aug 17
They were professional, on time, fast and didn't sit around and look they had nothing to do. I used them for their Crane services. I will say if you are thinking of hiring a crane company to move furniture or what not...then hire these guys! I can not say enough amazing things about how professional and easy the crane moving was. The operator Rudy and the two young guys he brought along were all so accommodating and made me feel everything was in good hands. I will be using them again in the future!
17:42 08 Aug 17
The 4 guys who moved me recently did a magnificent job. I can't say enough good things about them.....they were friendly, courteous, always smiling and VERY energetic!! I would recommend them in a heartbeat!!
16:56 24 Jul 17
Mindaugas and Shaquille were professional, friendly, and very efficient! They came out on short notice to help me unload a truck and did it at a great rate. I contemplated moving down the block again just to have my new friends come back out and help me hoist my couch again! Highly recommended.
11:33 21 Jul 17
Great guys. Hard workers. They know whatvthey are doing!
13:13 20 Jul 17
I've moved 14 times in my life, and I can honestly say, Gentle Giant was the best experience of them all. The crew was professional, friendly, good sense of humor (considering yesterday 7/19/17 it was in the 90's) and so efficient the bill came in under the estimate. Nothing was damaged (another first for me).I cannot recommend this company enough.Thank you to the Somerville Crew. You all did an fantastic job!

I had a great experience with Gentle Giant again. They never disappoint. The crew was great - very friendly and professional. A big shout out to Rudy (crane operator) for saving the day by getting our oversized sofa out of the old space and into the new. Moves are exhausting and stressful and they make the experience the best it can be. And they came in under the quote.Will definitely continue to use them.
00:13 01 Jul 17
They were extremely professional, courteous and efficient. They handled all the fragile boxes with care and wrapped all our furniture perfectly. I lived on the third floor with a really brutal set of stairs and there wasn't even the slightest complaint. Would definitely recommend them.
15:26 27 Jun 17
I have used Gentle Giant for two moves and I have been very satisfied with them both times. They are very fast, efficient, friendly, and very accommodating of special requests. I had them pack my things before my most recent move and everything was well cared for. I would strongly recommend Gentle Giant to anyone who is planning a move.
13:31 26 Jun 17
I would give them more stars if possible. Our move took 3 days and everyday the crew showed up on time and ready to work carefully and efficiently. Each crew member introduced themselves by name, took time to ask questions and were overall polite, courteous and professional. Gentle Giant made our huge move much easier than we could have imagined!! I will only use them in the future!
17:05 08 Jun 17
There was a crew of four or five. The packing up and into the truck went well. I still haven't found a box with old photo staff but I haven't looked in the basement storage unit at my new address. On the whole my opinion is favorable.
16:18 07 Jun 17
I had a fantastic experience with the men from Gentle Giant Moving Company. My move was local and nearby but still very emotional for me. The wonderful man who helped pack and move my things Where caring and thoughtful and tremendously helpful in the whole process. I couldn't have asked for better people in this transitional process to my new home. They also maintained their sense of good humor and patience as I continually changed my mind about where to place large pieces of furniture. The foreman was endlessly patient with me and in addition, had a fabulous sense of decor.I would use these same men anytime.!
19:13 06 Jun 17
We have used Gentle Giant twice and they were fabulous both times. Our moves were logistically complicated and everything went smoothly. The crews are hard working and careful. Back office coordinated everything and gives you clear estimates. I would definitely use them again.
17:15 06 Jun 17
Gentle Giant knew exactly what to do. They brought all the supplies I needed to pack and move my furniture and belongings into the storage container I had in front of my apartment building. All three guys were very helpful and professional.Moving with Gentle Giant took all the stress out of the moving process for me and I know my items were handled with extreme care and caution. They even had a solution for keeping my live plants safe during my move! Couldn't have done it without them!
19:29 02 Jun 17
Outstanding customer service and professional, harding working moving and storage staff.
23:04 01 Jun 17
Fantastic work - moved my stuff into a trinity house in Philadelphia and hoisted furniture up through the window to second and floors with no problems at all. Cheerful crew and efficient with the work. Would recommend highly!
14:35 30 May 17
I have used Gentle Giant for three separate moves and each time the crew has been incredibly polite, friendly, respectful, and so very efficient in how they handle and move property. The crews are never idle and put every minute of their time to use! The estimates are very reasonable, and the moves came in under estimate! I highly recommend Gentle Giant to anyone who wants a flawless, under estimate, and timely move!
17:18 27 May 17
Pre-move: Professional, organized, efficient, good communication; I was kept well-informed.Move: Professional, careful, considerate, efficient, methodical, fast. On-time, in fact the crew arrived early.
14:23 03 May 17
The people at Gentle Giant were fantastic at every step of the way. From booking, to packing to moving, each person involved was professional, friendly and helpful making the experience very smooth. I will definitely use them for any future move!

We have called Gentle Giant moving before our job this past week. Our most recent experience confirms everything we have experienced in the past with this company....straight talk from the moment they pick up the phone, a decent price, helping us organize the move day, punctuality and super communication and then there are the guys that do all the heavy lifting. The team takes great care of your valuable things and doesn't lollygag. Everyone on the team works together and responsibly to get you out and get you in as quickly as possible. It's the first and only call we have made for every move we have needed professional help with. Makes choosing a mover simple!
13:41 04 Apr 17
Is "amazing" an appropriate rating for a company entrusted with my precious furniture and heirloom pieces? It is for Gentle Giants Movers All the fine young men -- and Krystal, in the office pulling it all together, made for a perfect move Even one mover, Tim, who smiles like Tom Cruise and lifts like Arnold, took great care with my delicate and heavy furnishings. I will use this company again and again. They are, in a word, the "best".Kathleen
15:14 03 Apr 17
Moving with Gentle Giant makes moving almost a pleasure. They are very good at solving the problems that occur and also they are very polite.
16:53 01 Apr 17
We hired a so called reliable & local moving company to move some furniture from my house to a storage facility temporarily for construction purposes. The mistake I made was pay to pay them in cash and when we were able to inspect the furniture when we got it home we knew it was damaged from that prior moving company. So, needless to say when I hired Gentle Giant to move my furniture back to the house, I could see how professional, courteous, caring and personable the crew was with all our furniture. They took the time to cover most of the valuable peices and very careful during the entire move.I can't say how happy my wife and I were with GG and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to any of my friends and relatives.They were great!

Most of the time in my opinion moving from one house to another be local or across the country makes most people feel very apprehensive. The guys at Gentle Giant not only made it feel like it wasn't that big of a deal but they actually brighten up the day,NH great crew over there would recommend it to anybody....
14:56 28 Mar 17
Seriously amazing experience! I would HIGHLY recommend using GG for your next move!! Casey and Tyler (movers) were awesome and made me feel comfortable and confident that they would be taking great care of my stuff. It was a rainy day and these guys laid blankets the length of my home so as not to track in mud. From beginning to end my experience was just perfect!
15:25 27 Mar 17
What a great company. This was an excellent experience.

I am a Gentle Giant employee and a Gentle Giant customer, and I will sing their praises from the rooftops. Hardest working movers in the business, and the Quality Control team goes above and beyond handling issues that happen on a move. When they say they aim to make "customers for life" I really believe it, because I've seen it as an employee and and as a customer. I highly recommend
11:57 13 Mar 17
Our experience with Gentle Giant was wonderful. Not only did they move all our furniture and belongings, but they stored them for us for seven months, without any problems. Their move/load staff were extremely careful and efficient during the loading and unloading of our items. Their support staff quickly responded to any questions and were extremely helpful when information was requested. Gentle Giant made our move easy, which relieved the usual accompanying stress of relocating to another state. Any future move will be with Gentle Giant!
19:16 03 Mar 17
Our company, Operation Outreach in Holliston, MA, recently used the services of Gentle Giant for the second time. Once again, we are THOROUGHLY IMPRESSED. We could not believe how quickly the crew handled everything. They were pleasant and completely courteous and professional throughout, and did not make one whoops in the process. Because they were so fast, the charges were considerably below the estimate, which made us VERY happy, since we are a non-profit literacy program. Thank you, Gentle Giant! You really know your stuff.

After spending the entire morning moving in my new neighbors, Patrick Maltseu from Gentle Giant Moving Company in Somerville, noticed my 80 year old father struggle to bring a small freezer into the house. Patrick jumped up, took the freezer from him, not only brought it into the house, but then brought it down the narrow cellar stairs. Thank you Patrick, and thank you Gentle Giant for having such a fine caring young man on your staff!!!Annamarie Almeida

I have never in my life met such amazing movers! Jeremiah, Mark & Martynas were so Accomodating, Polite, Helpful, Patient Friendly and Personable...They carefully moved all my belongings carefully and wrapped all my fragile ones and made sure our family was completely taken care of at the end of the move. Everyone in the office was so courteous They TRULY made our day extremely easy to get through, I will NEVER use ANY other moving company and would gladly recommend them to EVERYONE I know! Thank you very very much for the awesome service!!!!
22:41 29 Mar 16
They always come through. Professional, hardworking, efficient and kind. They may quote higher but they never over charge and you get more for your money.
15:45 02 Nov 15
This wasn't my first time using Gentle Giant, but this was the first time I didn't bother bidding any other companies. Consistent with my experience from 2002, Gentle Giant was great at every step. Responsive to my inquiry, helpful as I completed my inventory, very competitively priced (50% of Zillow's estimate for the move), on-time, professional, courteous, and very careful with all of our worldly possessions. Everything was where I wanted it when we were done. They took apart and re-assembled furniture expertly, and there were some items they moved and I dont know how they managed to get it out of the old place and into the new without disassembly. I have highly recommended Gentle Giants to all of my friends, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to you! Very satisfied customer!

Updated Review (8/1): The Company apologized for the delay, took full responsibility, and offered me a refund. They have some logistical issues to work out on the box supply side of the business, but once this is corrected, I would consider using them again based on their professional demeanor and sincere efforts to fix a mistake.Review Excerpt (7/31): This is for the moving box supply service Gentle Giant offers. I requested boxes on a Monday for delivery on Wednesday to pack for a weekend move. On Wednesday morning, I was told the driver called out sick, but that they will send the boxes via FedEx. It's a Friday afternoon at noon, less than 12 hours before my move, and I have no boxes.

Wonderful experience with Gentle Giant. From the moment I called, I dealt with very courteous and professional people and whenever I had a question, it was answered promptly. The total cost after the move was well under the low estimate quote I had received and this is due, I'm sure, to the awesome movers we had. These guys never take a break and are efficient and respectful of both your belongings and you as their customer. They even took away some trash for us and happily disassembled some furniture that we hadn't beforehand. I would highly recommend using them and definitely will again if I need to in the future.

I wanted to let you know right away that Francesco Noe is utterly exceptional!” He was there both days, and everything went exactly as he said, including the timing. I had to arrive late this morning, they had let themselves in as planned, and had already cleared the basement when she arrived. Franceso had said they would before 1 O’clock, and they were out by noon. The whole team, both days, was incredibly nice and efficient, careful.

The teams have always been professional and extremely helpful when needed. Each member of this team worked well together and were efficient in completing the project on a timely basis.
