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 Gentle Giant move itself was the best moves that we have ever done. Gentle Giant is NOT your typical moving company - very professional - only quality and, unlike the well known Large Van Lines, doesn't use day labor - only their employees. One of our two movers has worked for them for 18 years and the other 8 years. They were super nice and fun to work with - making the move itself a breeze.

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.

I had the best experience ever working with Gentle Giants movers. The crew lead Bob was very professional and polite. The speed at which the crew worked was amazing and the best part was that they always had a smile-on 🙂 no matter how tough was the job.

I also appreciate the care the entire Gentle Giants team took to protect my family and themselves from Covid.

Thanks a ton and I will come back to Gentle Giants again when I move next !!

Mitchell and his team were outstanding! Professional, knowledgeable, courteous, easy going and just all around wonderful people who were really great at their jobs.

My job was not easy, I was not as organized as I should have been- and we moved into a 3rd floor walkup apartment in the heat and humidity of North Carolina in early August- and the Gentle Giants didn’t complain once- and they had to carry a washer, dryer, couch and way too many books up those stairs!

I was referred to Gentle Giants by a neighbor and I have already referred them to two other friends and am talking about it to friends and family. Moving sucks and your folks made the actual moving of things as enjoyable as it could be.
