About Charlotte, N.C.

Charlotte is nicknamed the “Queen’s City” in honor of Queen Charlotte, the wife of King George III at the time the city was founded in 1750. About 50 years later the city became famous for being the location of the first gold rush in the United States. While people no longer move here with the hope of finding gold, it’s still easy to see why so many of our customers have relocated to Charlotte, one of the fastest growing cities in the United States.

Whether you’re a sports fan, foodie, culture enthusiast, outdoor adventurer, or just looking for family friendly fun – Charlotte has something for you. From the NASCAR Hall of Fame to the downtown stadiums of the Charlotte Hornets, Carolina Panthers, and Charlotte Knights—there is no shortage of entertainment for local sports fans. Professionals and local college students can enjoy the numerous breweries and live music venues. Other notable attractions include: the Charlotte Ballet, Discovery Place Children’s museum, Carowinds Amusement Park, and the U.S. National Whitewater Center—which features the largest man-made whitewater river in the world.

Although we’ve won many awards, we’re especially proud to be named one of Charlotte’s best moving companies and one of Charlotte’s Healthiest Employers! Whether you’re moving across town, or across the country Gentle Giant is your trusted hometown Charlotte mover. When it comes to the perfect, stress-free move, we really do hit it out of the park.

In college, Bob was actively involved in community development.

Seamless experience starting with initial inquiry through project completion. All three people I dealt with (Dominic, Rachel, Houston) were professional and straight forward. Furniture handled with due care. No upselling or other shenanigans. Final bill came in at lowest end of initial estimate. Quite pleased with their services.

A great team of gentle giants that carefully packed and delivered. They were very professional and helpful - always ready to perform an extra task not required by contract.

We had a wonderful experience and to say this was an extraordinary move is to say the least. We sell commercial grade laser engraver machines. From my initial call with Andrew Hashway, to Rachel confirming the move to Bob getting in touch with me first thing Monday morning after alerting everyone the move wouldn't happen was phenomenal! Our laser ended up getting stuck at the airport, then come to find out it was at the hotel the entire time and it was our other pallet for our tradeshow that wasn't delivered on time. The whole team, including the moving crew, was amazing! We will refer our customers to you all and use you again in the future!

These Gentle Giants were wonderful. They did not smell of cigarettes, BO, or anything offensive. They began moving as soon as they got there. They knew what their job was and did not waste time. They worked as a team. They handled everything with care. I am sure if I sat here long enough, I could find more positive things to say about them. Bluestar was there to finish packing and the two companies communicated well.

Wowzers!!!!! This is the third time I've used Gentle Giants and there is a reason for that. These men came into my home and removed all the stress away. Knowing how careful they are and watching them move in such a speedy manner really takes a lot of the anxiety off the plate. I cannot emphasize hard enough how hard these guys work and they work together perfectly. I highly recommend Gentle Giants anyone and everyone who is moving in the future. Worth every penny!!!!!! Thanks guys!

Gentle Giant made a difficult move as painless as it could be. The crew packed our house and moved us. All of the crew members were professional and nice to be around. We received an estimate ahead of time so we new what to expect and there were no last minute surprises like we have had with previous moves performed by other companies (mainly around cost). It was very clear that the crew had extensive training and they had processes in place that allowed them to work well together and effeciently. All of the crew members were professional and nice to be around. Every single person that I came into contact with at Gentle Giant was wonderful. I hope we don't have to move anytime soon, but if we do, I will definitely use GG and I will recomment them to anyone I know who has an upcoming move.

Our crew: Mitchell, Joe, Alex, Thomas, Aaron, and Houston. - We moved twice within a year and some of the crew was on both moves. They were very professional, courteous, and did not damage and furniture or the walls of our new home. From packing up our belongings, to labeling the boxes, and then delivering each box to the right room, everything went very smoothly. We'd highly recommend Gentle Giant Moving Company.
