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.

In college, Bob was actively involved in community development.

Gentle Giant did a great job with our recent move. Tanner, Jevon, Mike C, James, Houston and Edgar were professional and very efficient. They worked quickly and were able to finish the job earlier than we expected. Their patience with our indecision as to where to place furniture in the new place was so appreciated! We will definitely use them again.

I have moved 5 times over the years, mostly with the large national companies. Gentle Giant was by far the best in all aspects. They were very responsive, polite, timely, efficient, careful, et al. Would greatly recommend them to anyone without hesitation. The crew (Andy, James, Alex, Talon, Tanner, Mike C, Houston, and Christian were all terrific. And on top of it all, they came in under the original estimate.

Amazing experience. From the first visit by the moving consultant to the time the moving crew finished at our new residence, Gentle Giant exceeded our expectations. We’ve made many corporate moves and have experienced a lot of different moving outfits. Gentile Giant sets a new standard in both customer focus and quality. We paid a bit more than the other companies we interviewed but felt the premium we would pay would be worth it. It certainly was and I recommend others to call them and give them the opportunity. The crew that showed up to prep and WRAP EACH ITEM of furniture did and awesome job, taking care with each piece (other moving companies just drape a moving blanket over your furniture). The moving crew came in and were friendly, upbeat, and worked together to get the job done efficiently and effectively. We really enjoyed working with Gentle Giant and would use them again without hesitation.

I've had a lot of mediocre moving services, and some terrible ones in my life. Gentle Giant is the first company I would seriously recommend to family. James, Caleb, and Jack were professional, fast, and thoroughly prepared.We had a huge, complicated, antique desk to move, and at the start of the day, I told them that I would have to break it down in pieces for them to take it away. When I stepped away for a minute and they had already figured it out and taken it apart, I was happy. When we showed up at the new house and they had already assembled it, no direction from me, I was amazed. And they treated the entire job this way, start to finish.They were really personable, hard-working guys who treated our stuff and our house like it was theirs. I really can't recommend them enough.

Your team lead by Mike (with Caleb and Matthew) did a fabulous job exceeding my expectations. They communicated well and politely with each other and with me. After arranging the furniture in my new home, they asked if I needed anything switched and had no problem making several changes. I would highly recommend not only Gentle Giants but this specific team of Charlotte employees.

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!
