Portsmouth, a city located in Rockingham County, New Hampshire is a historic seaport and popular tourist destination. The city sits along the Piscataqua River and its proximity to the water meant it was once one of the nation’s busiest ports and shipbuilding cities. In 1800 the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard was established. This was the country’s first naval shipyard and brought a lot of wealth to the city. Portsmouth’s wealth manifested itself in stunning, expensive architecture. For example, there are many Colonial, Georgian, and Federal style houses sprinkled throughout the city’s streets. These houses have since been converted into various museums and attract a large number of summer tourists annually. Other major draws to Portsmouth include the city’s tax-free shopping, waterfront views, and its historical significance as the location where the treaty ending the Russo-Japanese War was hosted.

Nashua is a New Hampshire city located in Hillsborough County. The city gets its name from the Nashua River which flows north from Lancaster, MA, to Nashua. Throughout the Industrial Revolution the city was a prominent textile mill. However, the textile industry migrated down south during the Great Depression and the last Nashua mill closed in 1949. Today, Nashua’s economy centers on financial services, defense industries, and high tech, with Hewlett-Packard being one of several major tech companies in the city. The South Nashua commercial district is a hugely popular shopping location partly due to New Hampshire’s lack of sales tax. The district boasts numerous shopping centers including the Pheasant Lane Mall and Nashua Mall Plaza. The city was also twice named ‘Best Place to Live in America’ in annual surveys by Money magazine, once in 1987 and again in 1998. Given the city’s favorable reputation the Gentle Giant crews are kept busy moving new residents into their forever Nashua homes.

I just had the BEST moving experience of my life. Called Gentle Giant and set a meeting with Greg several weeks before my move. He was on-time, did a walk through and had a quote to me the same day. Very reasonable. They followed up with me prior to the move and confirmed the crew would be at my house at 8am. The four gentleman arrived on time and got right down to business. Andrew, Aiden, Asa, and Luke were INCREDIBLE. Professional and careful. I have never seen a team work so efficiently. They had us moved out in record time and on our way to our new destination hours ahead of schedule. The same thing happened on the move in. They put everything where I needed it, cleaned up and were done in no time. I was blown away. What I expected to be a long and stressful day turned out to be great. And, they came in on budget, actually just under. This crew took such good care of us and our things. They even put up with my new puppy who wanted to get in their way the entire time. THANK YOU to the entire team at Gentle Giant.

I cannot recommend Gentle Giants for your moving needs highly enough! The team we had, led by the incredible Rolando Maldonado, made our complex downsizing move feel effortless. Every single member of the team was extremely skillful, professional, kind, positive, and empathetic. They were on top of everything that needed to be done in record time, with flawless execution and wonderful attitudes. They made sure everything was set up exactly right at our destination and went above and beyond to ensure perfection. Don't hesitate to engage with this fabulous company and their people for your moving needs!

I’ve used Gentle Giant three times and they have been awesome to work with. Coordinating the move was easy, and they took so much stress out of the moving process on the day of. They work quickly and efficiently and are so friendly. I would never hire any other company.

I am a real estate agent and have used Gentle Giants for my own move. They hustle and take great care with everything. I recently hired them for a customer that was unable to be at the move. These guys showed up on time, were completely professional, and moved everything from the third floor as if there were no stairs. They actually moved the goods in less time than quoted which the bill reflected. These guys are gentle and move like Giants

Fantastic, low stress moving experience. We moved the contents of a four bedroom house with a baby grand piano and everything went extremely well. The crew handled everything we asked for with a smile. Highly recommend.

Great experience all around. The movers were professional, efficient and worked hard on a very hot day. Everything arrived in great shape and we have no complaints at all. I would recommend Gentle Giant to anyone who is looking to hire a moving company.

I had an amazing experience moving from New Hampshire to Boston with Gentle Giant. They showed up on time and were well prepared. I was impressed by all four members of the crew. They were polite, professional, and careful with my belongings. Everyone was in a good mood and had a great attitude. The move took less time than expected and so it turned out to be a little cheaper than what was originally quoted, which was a pleasant surprise. I will definitely used them again in the future.

I changed my order to one less room of furniture and forgot to tell them to reduce the amount well they did and it was a good amount so pricing was great and the two guys were awesome so fast and well protected my furniture ! Great service I was very skeptical but trust me they are the best from my experience and all of my friends who highly recommended them.

Brandon, Eli and Tommy are the best! They were helpful, respectful, polite and clearly new what they were doing. We thought moving the bedroom set up the stairs was going to be a nightmare. They made it look like a walk in the park!!!

It is the 3rd time I have worked with Gentle Giant in the last 4.5 years since moving to NH. No challenge is too big and no request is too small. They are the most determined, fast paced, strong and careful group of individuals that I have ever worked with. This is my 20th lifetime move. 3 out of 20 were superbly accomplished with no damage, and great attention to detail and those 3 moves were with Gentle Giant. Thank you all. It was an extraordinary experience working with you. All 3 moves.

This was our second time using Gentle Giant. We didn't really consider any other company, since our first experience was so positive. The move was very easy to schedule and plan. The movers arrived promptly (early in fact). They were all very pleasant and professional and clearly experienced. They moved very quickly, but took great care with our furniture and other belongings. When faced with a tricky maneuver to get a large coach through a doorway and a funny angle, they were unfazed, and handled it beautifully. I would use Gentle Giant again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended!!
