About Philadelphia

Philadelphia, the largest city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, was founded in 1682 and is one of the oldest municipalities in the United States. Playing a key role in the American Revolution, Philadelphia is where the Declaration of Independence was signed and even served as the US Capital for a brief period. During the industrial revolution many early immigrants to Philadelphia were from Germany and Ireland. Greater Philadelphia is home to numerous universities and colleges that have distinguished it as a major hub for higher education.

The Schuylkill River flows through Philadelphia and you’ll find the famous and historical Boathouse Row on the east bank of the river. The Boathouse Row consists of a row of 15 different boathouses where rowing clubs train and compete. Gentle Giant was founded by college rowers in 1980 and is proud to recruit many of our employees from the college rowing programs in and around Philadelphia. The Philadelphia Museum of Art also lies along the Schuylkill River where you will find the famous “Rocky Steps” and bronze statue of Rocky Balboa. All of this sits within Fairmount Park, which when combined with the Wissahickon Valley Park makes up the largest urban park in America.

100% Crew Guarantee

Gentle Giant promises to deliver exceptional service to every customer, guaranteed (100% Crew Guarantee). Contact us anytime if you believe we have performed otherwise. We are proud to offer a money-back guarantee for every member of your moving crew. Learn more about some of our exceptional employees here!

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!

Andrew Rozzi

Philadelphia Regional Manager
Andrew Rozzi has been a Giant leader since 2003, when he began as a mover at Gentle Giant's Boston HQ. Over the years, he has taken on many different roles in the company, and has excelled in every one. 'I was working at an insurance company after college and not loving it. A couple of rugby teammates mentioned how great it was working at GG. 19 years and three regions later, I'm still loving it!'

After being a mentor to new Giants in Boston for several years, Andrew was tapped to be the second-in-command of our Washington, DC team. After helping to successfully develop the DC team, he was selected as the top choice to launch the Philadelphia office, which opened in 2015. He has also been a key player in Gentle Giant’s national partnership with Move For Hunger, a non-profit organization that works with moving companies to collect non-perishable food items to be delivered to food banks all across North America.

Andrew is a graduate of Northeastern University where he majored in English Lit. Outside of work, he enjoys playing rugby and attending games with his son, staying in shape through CrossFit, and spending time with his family.

Philadelphia Assistant Regional Manager
When Slaven joined Gentle Giant in December of 2007, he was met with heavy furniture and three feet of snow! "It was love at first box run," Slaven recalls of his GG initiation.

Now the Assistant Regional Manager in Philadelphia, Slaven has come a long way since starting with Gentle Giant in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. A Temple University graduate, Slaven’s favorite part of Gentle Giant is working with his fellow colleagues who share in the rewarding experience and lifestyle of a professional mover. "You sweat together, break bread together, and triumph together. There is nothing like it."

Outside of moving, Slaven enjoys football, basketball, wrestling, MMA, track and field, soccer and volleyball. He adores all things super heroes and comic books. Another passion he has is BBQ, cooked over an open flame, with charcoal - not propane!

Great moving company, Scott & Scott were great! I will definitely call them again for any moving needs. I was very satisfied with the job and highly recommend this company. They were professional, thoughtful, reasonably priced and efficient with timing. Thank you!

I have nothing but praise to share for the moving crew that helped move my family a few weeks ago. Not only did the crew need to arrange another truck to assist with the volume (on the FLY), we also experienced miserable weather with snow, sleet and freezing rains the entire day. Never once did the crew complain or express any doubt in getting the job done. I was so impressed in their positive, can-do attitudes with every challenge that presented itself throughout the day. Even after many hours of hustling, hard labor, while the crew was waiting for the 2nd truck to arrive they kindly offered to help set up the beds and cribs so my family had a place to sleep that night. I really can’t thank these gentle giants enough, they will gladly get my business again!!

Hiring Gentle Giant was one of the best decisions we made in our move. We were so stressed out leading up to our move and had a lot of concern about details (dealing with big items, hard to pack artwork, etc.) and the folks who worked our move were able to answer all questions and really made the whole thing go so smoothly when the day finally came. From our first walkthrough assessment to the actual loading and unloading, everyone was a real pleasure and handled the tasks with care while also working quickly and efficiently. Every single box and item arrived safely! A huge thank you to Andrew R, Scott L, Christopher J, James A, and extra thanks to Dominique P and George!

Pay the premium price. By the end of your move you’ll see it’s a competitive price. Nothing will be damaged or lost = Big savings. A crew of professionals wrap, box and move your stuff, professionally! Not a crew of day laborers unsupervised by the “professional” resting in the truck = Big big savings.

Just had my first experience using movers and I am more than pleased with the service! James and Jack were fantastic with maneuvering our belongings and making sure they didn’t get damaged. They worked quickly and carefully to make sure everything was put where we wanted it. While I don’t plan on moving again anytime soon, I would definitely use Gentle Giant again for my next move!

We have used Gentle Giant in several moves and every time we walk away feeling 110% satisfied. We were fortunate enough to work with Slaven twice. He and his awesome team (Michael and John) were so professional, courteous, efficient and just overall pleasant to be around during what can be a super stressful time. The last two moves with Gentle Giant were completed in under the allotted time and under the quoted price because of how efficient these professionals were. Definitely a happy repeat customer!

Perfect service! Scott L and Stephen L were professional and flexible, as we had a limited time slot to move a decent number of items. Would highly recommend this crew to anyone in the Philly region

We used Gentle Giant to move out of our apartment in Center City PHL out to Delaware County - James, Mikyas and Christopher were outstanding! Very friendly, quick and efficient, and treated all of our furniture as if it was their own. Can’t recommend these guys enough!

Moving from a downtown high rise can be very stressful. I was dreading the move but once I spoke to Dominique at Gentle Giant movers I felt reassured.We were met on time by our movers, Andrew, Ahmad and Slaven. They put me at ease immediately and worked fast and efficiently. They were communicative and really listened to directions. They were resourceful when navigating the complexities of the building and parking.I recommend this company for its workers as well as value. This was the best move to date.Thank you staff at Gentle Giant!

Update after our 4th move using Gentle Giant: The guys packed up our apartment and delivered everything to our new house. Just like every other time we’ve used them, they were on time, professional and friendly and did a great job. The final bill came in less than the estimate. They really are pros at what they do! We continue to recommend Gentle Giant to all our friends.
