Gentle Giant Moving Company

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 to here with hopes 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. Nearly 800,000 people live and work in the Charlotte community.

Whether you’re a sports fan, foodie, culture enthusiasts, 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. Young professionals and local college students 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.

Since Gentle Giant opened it’s North Carolina location in Charlotte in 2005, our athletic, highly-trained movers have been relocating customers in and out of Uptown, the South End, NaDa, Ballantyne, University City and everywhere in between.  We regularly move customers outside the city limits to Matthews, Weddington, Marvin, Waxhaw, and beyond.  In 2021 we expanded our service area into the state of South Carolina.  Our office in Fort Mill services the surrounding communities including Rock Hill, Riverview, and Wintercrest.

Charlotte Regional Manager
Bob grew up in Rhode Island, spent winters in Hopkinton, MA and summers on Prudence Island, but has called Charlotte, NC home since 2006. This is the year he was promoted to help manage Gentle Giant's burgeoning Charlotte presence.

In college, Bob was actively involved in community development. He traveled across the country working on Habitat for Humanity projects and spent a summer in Guatemala on an economic development team. The group was asked to create a low-cost feed system for livestock that functioned in conjunction with the village farm store, which they were also helping to build.

Bob attended the University of Rhode Island, where he was an avid volleyball player. He even played semi-pro beach volleyball doubles. When Bob isn't busy at work, he loves to play guitar, record music, paint, draw and spend time at the beach with his wife and children.

Since Michael Valle's start at Gentle Giant, he has been a constant source of positivity and fun, on the job and in the office. Customers and employees both agree that when "the going gets tough, the tough get Michael Valle." His work ethic and great energy have helped him to go from an entry-level position to a leader in the Charlotte office.

When Michael isn't helping with sales, marketing and operations in Charlotte, you can find him shredding on guitar, dancing, grilling out with his family and working out.

Hired Gentle Giant to help move a baby grand piano - best moving experience ever! The whole team - Joe, Darius, & Alex - were super friendly, explained everything so well, and were extremely efficient. I was so impressed with how they communicated with each other to ensure they moved everything as safely as possible. I’ve never had such a pleasant experience moving before. I certainly recommend this company and will hire them again for all my future needs!

I have used Gentle Giant numerous times. Moving items from one home to another, moving items out and storing them for remodels and moving appliances etc. In every case the team has been incredibly friendly, courteous and careful. I highly recommend them as your choice for moving anything!!

Amazing customer service from start to finish. Talon, Tanner & Holden all were professional, careful with our valuables and were incredibly quick in moving our things. As a small business owner, I appreciate this kind of quality in service immensely. I will recommend them over and over.

Gentle Giants we’re on time and significantly under the estimate. They were very respectful and helpful with my mother-in-law’s move.

I've moved a lot, and never would I say it was seamless, or fun. Until now! I'd give them 10 stars if I could. I could tell they had a system in place and it works. Passing boxes to each other, taping up boxes that needed extra care, communicating with each other while joking around and having a good attitude ALL DAY is note worthy. Hire these guys now, you will NOT regret it! GOOD JOB! Each of the crew members (Michael C., Jovon W., Talon S., Matt T.,Egar H., James I.) shook my hand and told me good-bye! I'm impressed to say the least. Good thing we are moving again in a year! Keep up the good work!

Just finished a move with the Charlotte crew. James and Tanner are rock stars! They were fast, efficient and very patient with us when we changed our minds a few time and asked for things to be moved a second time. They are as professional as it gets and friendly as well. We remain so very grateful for their service!

I’ve used Gentle Giant several times now and thought I should leave a review. I’ve had an excellent experience with Gentle Giant each time I’ve moved. And I’ll definitely use them next time too. Andy and team moved me out of my old house, stored my belongings for 5 months, and then moved me into my new house. They set up furniture and emptied the wardrobe boxes - - both of which were a big help. They were polite, professional, efficient, and on time. None of my belongings were damaged after the move and storage. Look forward to working with them again!

The entire team, with Michael taking the lead from the Charlotte office, to Andy taking the lead on site to the entire team of movers was flat out outstanding. They were professional and actually good guys and fun to have around during what could have been a far more stressful move from Cleveland to Charlotte. We couldn’t have chose. Better when it came to our move.

I absolutely loved working with this company! It was the first time we hired movers and if we ever move again, I'm using them without question. Tanner, Randy, and Matt were the BEST!! The BEST!! Total pros and freaking fast! We had massive pieces that they handled with such ease, no damage at all to anything! They were so quick with the stuff I knew we needed them to get they were even able to grab a couple more things, I really can't say enough good stuff about this company. When I requested a quote online I received a call almost immediately from the office and everything about them was professional, reasonable, and overwhelmingly easy to deal with!

Very professional from providing estimate to all the way completion of the move. My move was from a storage to my home. The crew, Tanner Sebren and James Issac were right on time that morning, and could not believe how efficient, professional and fast they loaded the truck with goods. At home, similar experience, very careful not to damage, pay attention to details, and again deliver the service in a very fast timeline. Would recommend and for sure will use again.
