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!

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).

Had another outstanding experience with Gentle Giant Movers! Used this company for a local move 7 years ago, and because of that outstanding experience, now again for another move.Can't thank Gentle Giant enough. Amazing crew and superior crew chief. Gentle Giant is fortunate to have this team of individuals-- the movers themselves who are phenomenal people, the staff when I've needed to be in touch with their offices, and, can't say enough good about their local Sales Rep!When Gentle Giant shows up at your door, all I can say is that for the first time in weeks there was a feeling of relief...When "moving day" is the best part of a major move, you know you picked a rockstar company! This company is the real deal and I commend them for taking care or their own people, because the "we've got your back" feeling trickles down all the way to the consumer. Highly recommended!

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 useday labor - only their employees. One of our two movers has worked forthem for 18 years and the other 8 years. They were super nice and funto 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!

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.

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.

Chris, Matt, and James did an excellent job. They were on time, worked quickly and efficiently and took great care with our household items. They exemplified the quality and professionalism that we expected when hiring Gentle Giant. We will definitely recommend Gentle Giant to our friends and family for their moving needs.

The movers were EXCEPTIONAL and exceeded all expectations. There was actually another tenant moving on my floor at the same time and she commented on how quick and efficient my movers were compared to hers. When I say these guys were fast, I mean it. They actually were jogging down the hall between loads. Since they are paid by the hour, this was obviously a surprise, but much appreciated. This was truly my best experience with movers, and I’ve moved 9 times in the last 8 years.
