About Charlotte, N.C.

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 here with the hope 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.

Whether you’re a sports fan, foodie, culture enthusiast, 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 can 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.

Although we’ve won many awards, we’re especially proud to be named one of Charlotte’s best moving companies and one of Charlotte’s Healthiest Employers! Whether you’re moving across town, or across the country Gentle Giant is your trusted hometown Charlotte mover. When it comes to the perfect, stress-free move, we really do hit it out of the park.

Moving can be stressful, so leave the hard work to us! We’ll come the day before your move and pack everything for you. When you hire Gentle Giant to pack your valuable belongings there is the added guarantee that your items will arrive safe and sound at the other end.  We take the necessary care and precision required to pack everything from crystal stemware to your baseball card collection like they were our own. If you want to pack yourself, though, we offer free delivery of moving boxes to your home too!

In college, Bob was actively involved in community development.

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.

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.

Project manager, Randy, and his crew, Darius, Christian, Houston & Aaron recently helped me with my client's move. The team was responsive, professional, respectful, polite and careful - a hard combination to find! I thoroughly enjoyed working with them and recommend them for your next move!

The team that helped me move — Andrew, Jevon & Edgar — were prompt and professional. They moved a large number of awkwardly shaped items up flights of stairs in the summer heat efficiently and with care. They finished quickly ahead of schedule, without any damage whatsoever, and double checked that everything was placed exactly where we wanted it. Gentle Giant is the only moving service I’ll ever use again.

I am a local realtor and get asked all the time for moving company recommendations and honestly I have never found one that I felt comfortable recommending until now. Another realtor recommended Gentle Giant to me when I was personally moving. When I called, the guy came out to look at what I needed and proceeded to get me a quote in the next few days. It did seem a little high and I almost didn't go with them but my gut said to do it. And I am so glad I did! I have NEVER had a company take such care of each individual piece of furniture. Mike and his crew wrapped everything in the heavy, padded quilts and made sure I was happy with everything. The crew of 4 and then later 5 were extremely polite and helped me rearrange my den furniture a couple of times in my new house since the furniture was heavy. i would highly recommend Gentle Giant and have already several times. They may not be the cheapest but you will be glad you spent the extra money!

Starting with our consultation with Michael and then the insanely great job the moving team did (Talon - team lead, Alex, Christian, James, Jevon, Jack and Paul) our experience with Gentle Giant was fantastic. Moving can be stressful, but moving with Gentle Giant was almost fun. Can’t thank the team enough for their help getting us settled into our new home.

We hired Gentle Giant to help us with our move across town. While we were not moving far, the service was amazing. Chris, Darius, Jack & Holden all were professional, careful with our valuables and were incredibly quick in moving our things. I will recommend them over and over.

Used Gentle Giant three years ago and had 5 star experience. They’re back three years later for another move. Packed today. Tanner, David and Houston worked hard all morning. Very professional. Expect the same to tomorrow for the actual truck loading and unloading. We’ve moved a lot. Gentle Giant Charlotte is the best.
