Second time using Gentle Giant whom I highly recommend. Very professional and the best in Charlotte! They wrap all of your furniture before placing it on the truck to assure its well protected. The team has a very impressive communication while carrying heavy furniture which shows excellent team work. I have recommended them to my friends and family!

Quality moving experience all around from the quote to the move itself. The crew were polite and friendly and took very good care of our belongings. It started with Michael and team organizing and quoting our move - great communication. Then Mitchell, Randy and Daniel came out day one to pack and prep - very nice. They returned day two with Jevon and Dominic, who were also nice. The all worked quickly - the final bill came in under the original quote. Thank you for a wonderful move experience! We would highly recommend your service .

This is the second time we used Gentle Giant movers and we don’t regret it one bit! Mitchell and Randy were so nice, hard-working, and incredibly creative when it came to getting some big items through tight spots!! They didn’t leave until everything was put exactly where we wanted it and put back together correctly. We really appreciated all the work they did. I would recommend Gentle Giant to anyone. We feel it’s a good value and have always had easy communication with the company and everyone has always been friendly.

Our Gentle Giant team - from Michael's initial visit and estimate, to the awesome crew that spent two days cataloging items going into storage (Mitchell G.); dismantling a huge outdoor six-person covered glider (Jevon W.); and then jogging back and forth to load two trucks (Daniel H., Randy D., Dominic L., plus the other two gentlemen as well) - was phenomenal! They met and exceeded our expectations, and couldn't have been any nicer or easier to work with. We have already recommended them to friends, and will continue to do so in the future.

Gentle Giant did our move today. The four guys (Joe and his crew) who were here had the happiest and best attitudes I have ever seen. They worked hard and were polite and friendly! I have no idea how they were able to do our move so efficiently and so carefully (including moving our piano!) They went above and beyond to ensure things were how we would want them in the house. The price came in under budget and our house looks amazing. We couldn’t have done this without them. I will recommend them to anyone I can - if I could give 6 stars I would.

We could not have been more pleased with our experience with the Gentle Giants! These guys were courteous, extremely professional, personable, clearly had a tremendous amount of experience and were the most efficient movers I’ve ever seen! This was, hands down, the best moving experience my family of four has ever had! Thank you GG’s!

I never write reviews for anything but I’m leaving one for Gentle Giant because I can’t recommend them enough! Gentle Giant stepped up and came to the rescue after another moving company left is in a terrible bind. The crew that came were the friendliest, fastest, most efficient movers we’ve ever had! They were very communicative about everything and did an outstanding job! It was a pleasure working with them. Again, I can’t recommend them enough!!

I have had these guys move me twice, and it was a professional and efficient experience both times. Recently I moved again and was recommended another moving company. I was given a piano since my last move, and this other company specializes in moving pianos, so I got quotes from both companies. Gentle Giant was higher, so I went with the other company. That was a huge mistake, these other guys were unprofessional and refused to wear masks even though I'd been told they would wear them. If I had to do it again, I'd pay the extra cash and have Gentle Giant move me!

I've used Gentle Giant for all of my many moves over the years. At this point, I'm not sure if they charge more than their competition. I haven't checked. Even if they did, I wouldn't care because I still wouldn't hire anyone else. In fact, if another moving company offered to work for free, I'd still hire GG. Every single employee is highly professional, friendly, prompt, careful, thoughtful, honest, and diligent. They've never lost or damaged anything during a move, and they put a great deal of time and effort into protecting all my things. And I never think twice about leaving them alone with family members and pets. Working with GG is always the least stressful part of my moves. I’d give them more than 5 stars if I could.

The guys were great for my move. They were all professional and friendly - no one acted like they were bothered when I asked them to do something for me. They knocked the job out quickly and efficiently. But most of all, they were kind and helpful. They made my move enjoyable and effortless. I appreciated everything they did to help me! Highly recommend this company!

The team was responsive before the move, called en-route, and arrived on time to the move. Once arrived, they assessed the move and began to work. These guys don't play! I have 2 king size adjustable beds and they took them apart and moved them with ease. To keep life interesting, during the middle of the move, it started to rain which then turned to snow(!) and the guys laid down a runner on my hardwoods in my new house to keep them clean, and even wrapped all of the furniture items in the truck before bringing them into the home! I cant say enough great things about them. This was the most positive move experience I have ever had! I will use them again and again and will enthusiastically recommend them to anyone who is planning a move!

The Charlotte Crew (Daniel, Tyler and the crew chief) delivered a crate to Charleston SC that we had in storage in Boston for the past 3 years. I would give the guys 10 stars if I could. On time, super fast and cleaned up everything! I know finding a moving company can be extremely difficult but call Gentle Giant!! The Boston group AND the Charlotte group are the best, hands down. Oh - and everything was SO well packed that not a single item was broken or damaged - incredible!! Thanks guys, you're the best!

We hired Gentle Giant to move and store our home contents until our new home was completed. On move in day, 4 young men and 2 full trucks promptly arrived. 4 hours later everything was moved in and they were done. Never seen 4 guys work so well together making sure every thing was handled correctly. They worked incredibly hard and efficient. They were also completely professional and honestly made the entire day completely stress free. Highly recommend using Gentle Giant. Best decision we made was using them.

We loved our experience with Gentle Giants. From the first encounter getting a quote to the truck pulling away after finishing the job — we were happy. 100% the best moving experience I’ve had. The team was professional in every way. Communication was excellent. Evan was efficient, kind, and thoughtful. I noticed how well the team communicated with each other. They were meticulous protecting our things and making sure everything was wrapped and handled carefully. They made quick work of moving our Pinball machines—not easy! They made sure everything was where I wanted it when they unloaded. They worked their butts off and were so careful with our things. When we had to delay our actual move in to our new home due to ridiculous builders issues they were flexible and accommodating. They even helped get us a speedy quote of the cost increase for storage due to the delay in closing and our builder covered the extra cost. We are telling everyone to use Gentle Giant

We hired Gentle Giant to move from one 4 bedroom home to another, 20 miles away. Awesome experience. We've moved many times over the years between my office and homes we've renovated. This was the best ever. On time, under the bid, excellent care of belongings, hustle from truck to house and back all day long. Absolute best!!!

Clearly the reason this company has the great ratings is because of their dedicated, efficient, careful, friendly and customer focused move crews! However, dealing with Alexander in their quality control department or Jason Begin their Charlotte NC sales representative is zero star level customer service. Both were horrible in the areas of empathy, problem resolution and just a basic apology for any mix up. Not only was there confusion between what’s a move time window versus arrival time window, but when my crew shows up 2 1/2 hours even past their estimated arrival time, did I hear anything from the sales guy? Nope...nothing. Even when I spoke to him about the confusion (granted I should have read more closely his confirmation email) his tone was “nasty”, sarcastic and unfriendly. Thank goodness for Shopia and John in their quality department who truly cared and worked to get a crew out! And again, the crew was amazing. Thank goodness someone cared! Easily could have been 5 stars instead of 3 had it not been for Jason and Alexander.

I hired Gentle Giants for a 2-day, 5-bedroom house move within Charlotte. These guys never stopped moving over the entire process, not a single slacker amongst the crew! Courteous, professional, incredible work ethic, no problem handling large pieces of furniture. I doubt I'd ever use another moving company after working with Gentle Giant. Very impressed all around.

The men were very respectful to us AND each other. They were just plain polite, something rarely seen anymore. As the person doing the paying, I expect a certain amount of respect from the foreman. I was so surprised at the way all the crew interacted with me and, again, with each other.

I was very pleased with the handling of my belongings. Also, the willingness to move a piece if needed. AND NO SLIDING ON MY HARDWOOD FLOORS!!! They really worked hard every minute they were here.

I am a REALTOR so I will be giving your name out a lot! I am never moving again but I will tell everyone about my service.

We could not be more pleased. I am now retired but over the span of my working life I have had many moves with numerous moving companies and none came close to comparing to Gentle Giant – the move was incomparable.
I especially want to commend Bob Farnum, the Charlotte General Manager, who stepped into the breach for our move and really made the experience as smooth as humanly possible. Bob and his fellow crew member Jevon Washington were two of the most pleasant, helpful people that I’ve ever worked with – they alleviated much of the stress of moving. Joe Guns, also of the Charlotte office, set everything up and Rachel coordinated final details – they made everything as smooth as silk!
