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.

Absolutely incredible company, service and employees. I am in awe of just how fast and easy they made my most recent move. I called these folks on a Monday afternoon and they scheduled the move for Tuesday morning at 8 am. I worked with Mitch, Jovaun, and Matt- all very sweet guys. I literally just pointed to what I wanted, where I wanted. I didn't have anything packed at all. The movers packed everything, moved it to the new location, and placed it exactly where I wanted. I didn't even have to be present for any of it. I will ALWAYS use this company and will come back for more. I was quoted an estimate of 1200 but the movers completed the work so fast that my total only came out to about 600. I moved from a house to a 3rd story apartment for context.HUGE thanks to Mitch, Jovaun, and Matt. Literally the best moving experience I've ever had. Worth every single penny!

We contacted Gentle Giant on a Monday and needed to move by Friday and they were able to squeeze us in. It was only a $200 deposit and the rest was calculated after the move was complete. We had 3 movers for 4.5 hrs. It was just over $900 and they were so fast. Joe, Jackson & Talon were funny and literally running. I wish I had that energy! I would 1000% recommend using them to friends and if we ever move again. Gentle Giant was a must have for moving in Charlotte!!!!!

I am very impressed by the team from Gentle Giants (Joe G., Talon S., and Liam P.) for their level professionalism during a recent in-state local move. They represented the Gentle Giant brand very well providing excellent customer service in being prompt, responsive and highly skilled at taking great care of my items during the move. I highly recommend them for anyone seeking out professional quality movers and plan to use them for all future moves.

We recently used Gentle Giant for a second time for our local move within Charlotte. This move was more complex than the first, but that did not impact the service we received. Great communication, and service throughout from scheduling all the way through the move. The movers themselves were quick without being in a hurry and took time to help us place furniture/rugs etc exactly where we needed them in the home (they were very patient as we tried a couple of options in different rooms). Moving is stressful but Gentle Giant made their part of the process so easy and it was very appreciated.

Andy, Liam, Matt and Mitch, what can we say ... they were amazing! professional, courteous and wonderful! They were on time and did a great job! GG will be helping us move one more time and I know it will be a great experience. Anyone that asks what mover they should use I will tell them Gentle Giant for sure!

These guys are amazing. Friendly, professional and always responsive.

This was my 3rd time using Gentle Giant for a local move. In fact, the same crew moved me this time as did 10 years ago, and they remembered me! Very professional, accommodating to whatever I needed, skilled at packing carefully, courteous, friendly, on time, responsive, rolled with any changes I made during the move. I would use them again and again.

Cannot say enough great things about our recent move! Chris took great care of us along with James and Matt. They were polite, responsive, worked with skill and speed, and made our move as stress-free as possible. Gentle Giant is on another level compared to other storage and relocation companies - don't look anywhere else! Worth every penny, and would definitely use them again. Thank you again Chris, James, and Matt.

Jevon and crew were very professional. They were very quick but careful. I would definitely recommend. The only regret is I should have hired Gentle Giant to load my PODs too. Thanks Jevon , Steve, and the other gentleman (sorry his name escapes me).

I love these guys. They come really close to taking the stress out of moving. Used them twice in 2 years now, most recently from Charlotte to Chapel Hill. Exceptionally friendly and competent.

Our 3rd move with Gentle Giant and as always it was a pleasure working with them. From scheduling the move, to confirming with a move coordinator, to the movers themselves, every person at Gentle Giant is responsive, friendly, and professional. Every mover we have worked with (12 total) have all been super friendly, efficient with their planning and time, and extremely respectful with our items. They have never had issues with any of our heavy items and once moved will confirm multiple times items are where they should be and will move an item to ensure it’s correct. Their prices are great for the service received. I’d recommend them to anyone needing movers and would use them again.

Joe and his Gentle Giant Team moved us locally this week. We are going to miss seeing them every morning. Very friendly and professional people. We never heard the word “no” when making a request. We didn’t even hear “I have to check”. They always said “sure we can do that!” We added items to storage. So they parked two trucks back to back and moved the items from the delivery truck to the storage truck. They set up our beds a day before delivering the rest of the furniture so we could sleep in our new house. They literally sprinted between the truck and house turning it into a workout and moving us as fast as possible. Great communication from estimate to setting up our house. We have another move in about nine months and will definitely use Gentle Giant again.

Andrew, Darius, Mitchell, and Randy did a fabulous job moving my parents who are 92 and 88 years old. They were professional, friendly, meticulous, careful and very thorough. I cannot say enough good things about these nice, strong young gentlemen! I’ll use them again in the future!!! Cannot beat their service! A stressful experience turned out to be enjoyable!

The professionalism and friendliness of your crew is exceptional. If it wasn’t for the fact that they had a job to do, I would have enjoyed more conversation with such pleasant guys.

Joe and Jackson did a wonderful job with our move on 10/22/20. They were careful, efficient and professional. We had a long trip to NY from Charlotte. When were arrived to our destination, everything was still secure and there was no damaged.
I would highly recommend Gentle Giants.

We have moved many times but the recent move with Gentle Giant was our best.
Andrew led a team and they were all outstanding.

Both moving and delivery of my home was beyond my expectations. Pat Donovan in Boston, Joe Gunn and Bob in Clt treated this very stressful time with compassion, humor, and flexibility from beginning to end.

They were very friendly, nice, personable guys, which helped alleviate the stress of moving. They also went the extra mile in helping put together a complicated bed.

I have used your company for the last few moves we’ve had to make. After my first experience with you guys, I made the decision never to use anyone else. Superb service, every time. I recommend your company to everyone.
