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.

We had an AMAZING experience with Gentle Giant Moving Company yesterday. The gentlemen were so kind and SO efficient. They are organized, professional, and fast. If you are looking for a moving company, they are your people!

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.

Gentle giant did a fantastic job moving us from Charlotte to Raleigh. They were completely professional and thorough and I would highly highly recommend them.Our movers were Javon Washington, Matt Thorburn, John McCoy, James Isaac, Danny Holland, and Cameron (didnt catch his last name). Javon is a good leader and the team worked really well.

Gentle Giants moved me locally last week and the whole move was flawless. They wrapped every piece of furniture and carried it to and from the truck. Each piece was placed exactly as we wanted it. They laid the carpets and assembled the beds. The crew was clean cut, pleasant, courteous, polite and friendly. I got 3 quotes on the move and Gentle Giants was competitive. I highly recommend the Giants.

Gentle Giant again for the win! It’s an outstanding company with first-class people. We recently completed our second move with their help and would not consider using anyone else. They know what they are doing. Michael and Rachael were very responsive and helpful when setting up our move. On game day, Michael, Mitchell, Randy, Alex, and Evan handled our things with extreme care and a great attitude. They made the experience easy and fun. We are impressed but not surprised.

Talon, Alex, Ronni, and Jonathan moved all of my furniture and large items out of my storage unit and into our new townhome. They were helpful, respectful, and listened to our needs. These four gentlemen were the most conscientious movers we have ever hired. They moved us efficiently but were mindful of doing their job well. They were a pleasure to work with!

We used Gentle Giant Moving Co. to pack up our home into storage pods for our move to IN. They were on time and very professional! Joe and his crew did a great job wrapping all of our furniture, making sure it arrives to our new home safely. I would definitely recommend Gentle Giant Movers!

Had a great experience with Gentle Giant Moving. Did a local move and they were able to get it done super efficiently, with the most professional and personable guys - Michael, Jevon and Christian - they were hands down the best moving crew. We've done multiple corporate moves, and this one was way better than any of those before. The people make the difference. The home office people were great too - Krystal and Rachael were both there for us when we had questions. 110% recommend!

Used the company for a local move which includes heavy extraordinary items. The movers, Daniel and Randy, arrived perfectly on time and performed their work with extreme efficiency. They were literally running back and forth during the whole move. They also managed to move almost all items without dissembling them, causing very minimum damage to my furniture. When moving things into the new house they followed the notations I wrote on the boxes and place every item precisely where I need them. Also they were able to arrange furniture with their experience when I didn’t know how to place them, and resulted in a very good layout that I like. I would use this company again without hesitation and recommend them for everyone who need moves.

I highly highly highly (yes, I meant to type “highly” three times) recommend Gentle Giant for any of your moving needs. From start to finish, the experience was great! The customer service is top notch! The online quote submission process was very user friendly. From there, I received an email from William letting me know that they received my information. I really appreciate them following up, but not hassling me for business like some moving companies did. Once we made the decision to move forward with Gentle Giant, I spoke with Rachel to book the service. She was so nice and friendly. She answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable with choosing Gentle Giant. From there, Michael came by our apartment to get a more accurate survey of the items we needed moved. He too was very nice and friendly. I could really see his passion and knowledge for the business. He also followed up with me a day before the move to see if I had any questions. On the day of the move, Joe, James, and Mike arrived early. All three guys were nice, friendly, and professional. They handled ours things with care by wrapping in blankets and taping. I also liked the precision of the system they had by communicating the way things were moved and how they moved. The entire move was smooth and seamless. To top it off, the final price ended up being less than the quote because our move took less time. We appreciate Gentle Giant and would definitely use them if move again. Thank you again to all involved!

Simply the best moving experience I've ever had. Well worth the money to have a friendly, professional team with a completely hassle-free move. Would give them more than 5 stars if i could.
