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 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!

I can not recommend Gentle Giant enough. Matt, Andrew, and Justin were terrific movers. They showed up on time with all necessary equipment and were extremely professional and courteous. They took great care with my furniture and boxing up items. Everything was handled with caution. Matt, Andrew, and Justin were fast and easy to work with from beginning to end of move. They were very friendly and more importantly, they were honest. I will never use another company other than Gentle Giant. I cannot describe enough how great the experience was and the peace of mind in knowing that professionals were handling my move so I didn’t have to worry about damage. I never had to lift a finger. Five stars!! Highly recommend!

In a time of extreme uncertainty, Gentle Giant moving worked with me to ensure I was able to move into my new home. They were punctual, polite, and extremely efficient. I lived on a very small, narrow street and they worked together as a team to get their truck down it and load my belongings safely and quickly. As fast as they were able to load they were just as fast unloading. Nothing was damaged in any way. Their crew was incredibly friendly, polite, and respectful as well. I HIGHLY recommend this company.

We’ve used Gentle Giant twice. Once for an interstate move and once for a move across town. They exceeded our expectations both times. Kind. Quick. Hard working. Thoughtful. Careful. They make it look so easy but it would have taken weeks to do what they did in a few short hours (and I most certainly would have hurt myself!). We’re so grateful. Thank you!

We used Gentle Giant to move our theater company from our storage unit into our new space. Our movers were very helpful, patient, and professional. They were also very friendly, and they really knew what to do when we hit a slight snag in our schedule!

Gentle Giant Moving Company is the best moving company I’ve ever used. They were on time, efficient, careful and really nice guys! They checked in with any questions and were very flexible when we had to shift gears at the last minute and put some things in storage before the final move.

The movers from Gentle Giant were very pleasant and treated my items with care. They received direction very well and the move went very smoothly. Booking them was also a breeze as everyone who works in their offices was very nice and helpful. I will definitely be using them again for my next move.

We have moved quite frequently over the past 8 years and this was one of the most positive experiences we have ever had with with a moving company. The crew, led by Andrew was polite, respectful of our belongings and did a wonderful job. I would recommend them to anyone who needs reliable movers.

I guess their booking dept is too busy. I can't even get a quote on my move. Maybe they are not interested in the job. Maybe my email got lost in the cloud... Either way. Email silence since Monday. It's a darn shame.

I saw a “Gentle Giant” moving truck near my home this morning— we live in a historic neighborhood in Philadelphia with narrow one-way streets — and I was struck by the height of the GG moving truck. I immediately began to worry about why such a high truck was operating on our street. So not surprised, though very saddened, to walk outside this evening and see HUGE, huge branches of one of our very valued street trees lying across the street and sidewalk. I guess that the GG moving truck took down about 25% of this tree. Hope GG is working to hire a tree surgeon to try to attend to this tree, which now has a gaping “wound.” Thanks

These people wanted me to pay them $900-$1000 to move me 10 minutes away from my house. And all they were taking was my furniture! No boxes no bags no clothes, nothing, just furniture from 2 bedrooms and a living room. Needless to say I didn't use them, found a company to take ALL my stuff, including boxes, bags and miscellaneous stuff for $500. What a RIP off.

These guys were unbelievable. They took the stress out of a busy, stressful day and made the experience infinitely better. They accommodated my last-minute settlement date change, came out from another job, and yet moved me with a smile on their face the entire time, while being careful and professional. Oh, and they came in way under budget.

I had to do a last minute move to a new apartment and was lucky to find Gentle Giant Moving. They were accommodating with our rather time-constricted and inflexible schedule and moved us from our 5th floor WALK-UP. The were very careful with the disassembly and assembly of all our furniture. Moreover, the moving team was very friendly and great to work with. I would highly recommend them - it is well-worth the price!!!

We had great customer service from the team that did our moving job in December 2017. The guys were pleasant, professional, and most of all, FAST. They did two moves for us back-to-back in one day, and I was very impressed by how careful they were with our belongings, and how organized they were for the move. I would highly recommend Gentle Giant!

This was my first time moving with Gentle Giant and it was a great experience! Everyone – Andrew, the estimator, Dominique, move coordinator, and my movers Jeremy, Matthew, Samuel were so thorough and patient. I was a little nervous heading into the move, especially given the current conditions, but everything went smoothly. I’ve already recommended you guys to friends of mine who are moving!

We weren’t there personally to supervise the move but had a friend there and were available by FaceTime. Our friend who supervised was extremely impressed with the crew. On time, had a plan for packing the truck when they arrived, were careful and thoughtful throughout, and for the few things that weren’t clear, they asked us to make sure they got it right.
From start to finish our experience with GG was A+. Shane helped us plan the move and was very prompt at responding, gave us good and accurate advice, and clear information about costs. We really could not have had a better experience and the price was very fair.
