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!

Andrew and his team were incredibly professional, as well as polite and kind. My mother’s apartment was loaded out very efficiently and we were headed to a storage unit within an hour and a half. Load-in to the storage unit was also very efficient. The unit was JUST big enough for the belongings, and Andrew and his team were very careful and thoughtful about how they went in and could be accessed later. My experience with Gentle Giant was terrific from the time of making the reservation all the way to locking up the storage unit at the end. I am very pleased and would highly recommend Gentle Giant.

Unfortunately, I had to move twice in 8 days due to unforeseen circumstances... all during the COVID-19 craziness. I used a different company for the first move and wound up paying them to do 50% of the work myself. Enter Gentle Giant for move #2. Colin and Dominique were so helpful in setting the move up on short notice and I had no doubts about the process/what to expect. And then Jeremy, Scott and Nate wouldn’t let me lift a finger to help on move day. They were efficient, pleasant and professional. Their upbeat attitudes made a stressful situation so much better!

I used Gentle Giant for the first time today. We are using PODS to move our belongings, and we used Gentle Giant to help is pack our PODS. They offer other full services as well. Scott and Jeremey were absolutely terrific! First, they called me when they were 15 min out and showed up exactly on time. After a quick tour of our apartment, they got to work. 3.5 hours later our PODS was packed and ready to be shipped out. The movers were courteous and most important, EFFICIENT!!! What would have taken me 3 days to do, they did in 3 hours. They made one minor accident in damaging our vanity table; however, they immediately apologized and actually tried to fix the table on the spot. It was a total accident. I sincerely appreciated his honesty and efforts to fix it. The claims department will make it right, I’m sure. I would highly recommend using Gentle Giant to friends and family. I’m not totally sure if their hourly rate is similar to their competitors. Their rate is totally worth it especially if you need movers who are punctual and responsible. Their scheduling and billing team are very responsive as well. Thanks GG!

Where do I begin with this company? God send. My husband and I had to suddenly take care of a widowed elderly family member and move our apartment and his apartment to one location within one week. Another moving company we spoke to had guaranteed one of the conditions we needed (hand hoisting a large couch through a short balcony) on a Friday and when we called back on Monday, their policy changed or someone forgot to let us know that condition couldn’t be met. They also were asking for way too much in my opinion. After scrambling to find another company, we called Gentle Giant (spoke to Andrew), explained the situation when we called, set our standards for things that absolutely need to happen, and they were delighted to help us move that Friday morning. We had a point of contact person (Dominique) emailing and calling us for any questions the whole time. That made us feel very secure and taken care of. When Friday came, the movers (Jeremy, Justin, Michael, and Scott) were on time, energetic, and so friendly to all of us. I had heard they even kept our elderly family member entertained! Everything went so smoothly despite all the hiccups we experienced prior to finding this company. And let’s give a big shoutout to COVID 19 for making things a struggle all the way through 😭 Thank you for your service Gentle Giant. You have our service in the future!

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!

Dominique, who coordinated my move, communicated with me clearly throughout the planning process. She was a great help and very pleasant on the phone. On the day of the move I spoke with another coordinator, Andrew, who touched base with me to make sure I felt that it was safe to proceed with my move given the protests in the city. I appreciated that he took the time to see if rescheduling would be safer both for me and your team. My moving team, Jeremy and Nick, arrived on time and communicated clearly with me. They were very flexible and easy to work with which made moving during this time so much easier on me. Both team members were so polite and really put me at ease throughout the process. From beginning to end they all made the experience much easier and less stressful for me.
