Mindaugas Jankantas

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 is the best! I've used them for my last three moves and wouldn't consider using anyone else. They are total pros, from the office staff to the movers themselves: friendly, diligent, and extremely hard-working. Moving can be extremely stressful, but I know I can always count on Gentle Giant.

My moving day started with heavy downpours that turned into snow. Gentle Giant was able to move all my stuff safely with no problems and no water damage. They wrapped all furniture in moving blankets and took extra care with expensive items.

These guys were wonderful, polite, punctual and very careful. They did everything that was listed in our contract and then charged us over $2000 less than the maximum quoted. WOW we were really impressed and won't go into the horror stories of what we experienced with other movers.

Best move ever. They were so meticulous and nice, they made moving a breeze. We did the full packing service and I’m glad we did. Hands down better than any company we’ve used in past. They even had shoes off inside for our carpets! Nicest guys!

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!
