About Philadelphia

Healthiest Philadelphia Movers Philly Business Journal

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.

Gentle Giant promises to deliver exceptional service to every customer, guaranteed (100% Crew Guarantee). Contact us anytime if you believe we have performed otherwise.

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!

We hired Gentle Giant movers for our move from MD to NJ. Patrick Donovan and John Weigel were awesome at setting up the move and coordinating the schedules.Alexandria B., Adrian M., and Gabriel S. from the DC branch were amazing in packing our belongings. Tudor A., Daniel R., and Victor S. from the Philly branch were super efficient and professional in loading the truck in MD. Tudor A. and Victor S. from the Philly branch and Garfield W. and Izaiah S. from the Brooklyn branch did an amazing job delivering our belongings and took great care with the floors of our new place.Shout-out to Tudor A. for taking great care of my flimsy desk and for coordinating the loading and unloading crew.Everything arrived in great condition and the crew took great care in loading and unloading our belongings. We would certainly recommend Gentle Giant to others looking for moving services. Every member of the staff we met was professional, friendly, and did an extremely good job!

Gentle Giant has provided services for my 5K event three times now. I am absolutely delighted to recommend them to anyone in need of moving services. The crews and back office staff members are kind, responsive, caring, and go above and beyond to ensure a good experience. Most recently we were assisted by Andrew R, James A, Mikyas B, Tudor A, and Daniel R – all of whom were so enthusiastic and efficient! I love working with GG and would volunteer them for any home or business moving needs.

For various reasons, our recent move involved using Gentle Giant on three separate occasions. All three were outstanding. The movers were professional, efficient, helpful and friendly. The office personnel are the same. They diffused much of the stress otherwise involved in a move. If I had to pick one word for my experience with Gentle Giant, that word would be 'trust'. I highly recommend them!

Phenomenal from start to finish. Scott and his team were very professional, hustled the entire time, and took great care not to damage anything during the move. 10/10

We hired Gentle Giant to move the contents of a 950 sq ft apartment 1.3 miles away. On July 26 three movers showed up and began packing, the move was completed on July 27. We paid extra for more comprehensive moving insurance with the grand total coming in just shy of $3200.They were not the cheapest moving company but we went with them due to their reputation. Some of our furniture was destroyed in the move, some was damaged, but ultimately Gentle Giant made it right.The reason I'm not rating them better is the communication from Gentle Giant throughout the damage claims process was abysmal. It would take multiple emails and phone calls before anyone would respond. I honestly do not think they would've made things right had I not reached out to their upper management.
