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!

James and Ken were very professional and efficient movers. I was pleasantly surprised by how quick they were + they were very cordial and easy going. The move coordinator Dominique was also very accommodating and responsive. Despite arriving into town the same day, Gentle Giant was able to make the stressful day a pleasant and smooth one. Will recommend!

Had to schedule a tight, difficult move on short notice. Dominic worked with me to make it work, and even made some adjustments to the plan to bring costs down. The crew he sent was A+ all around, and everything went smooth and trust me when I say there were plenty of ways this move could have gone sideways. Highly recommended.

I had a wonderful experience with the entire GG staff. The office staff (Krystal, Maddie, & Dominique) were very responsive & helpful in coordinating my move from the day I requested a quote. On move day, Joel & Slaven did a fantastic job moving my stuff efficiently from one location to the next. They handled all my items with care & offered to help assemble furniture. Overall, everyone is really kind & patient. I would definitely recommend this business to others. Thanks for a smooth move!

The wonderful men at Gentle Giant were the best, most professional movers we could have asked for! Scott L, Mike, and Joel got our two bedroom apartment (third floor walk-up!) moved with no hassle whatsoever! They were also the nicest gentlemen, and made us feel so at ease with a stressful move. When we next have to move, we're using them 100%

On June 30th I needed to move my daughter out of one apartment and into another as she was out of town on business. Without much notice, I decided on Gentle Giant and it couldn't have worked out better. Andrew and Mickey arrived on time and did a fantastic job with the move. These 2 guys really hustled which kept my cost down. Everything worked out great. Thanks for your help.

Just got moved by Gentle Giant and it was hands-down the best moving experience of my life! Scott, Ken, George and Logan were my movers and they were SO incredibly nice and efficient, everything was fast and done perfectly. The price was very fair. I’ll never use anyone else again.

Gentle Giant took away the stress of moving. They have great instincts for helping you pack and thinking through the volume and logistics of your move. They are true professionals and I was very happy with their quote and every single person I interacted with from the onset. Would use them again without question.

I never write reviews but felt compelled to let everyone know how incredible our experience was with Gentle Giant Moving Company. Scott, Ken, Logan and Michael were kind, efficient and helpful. They took time and care to ensure the move went smoothly. We moved on the hottest day of the year from a fourth story walk up with no AC into our new home and everyone on the crew was nothing short of amazing through it all. Thank you!

We purchased a new couch from a major national retailer and when it was delivered this morning, the company's contract delivery crew refused to move it to the second floor of our home. The crew expressed concern about getting up the staircase and then refused to even attempt it. Our house is built in 1890 with a wide central staircase with lots of open space and clearance for all of the couch's dimensions, but possibly at some awkward angles. The crew wouldn't even try, citing concern about insurance and damages. We had them leave it in the packaging on the first floor. As they were leaving, one of the guys told me their next job was in Connecticut, a 4+ hour drive, so I really think they were in a rush and not willing to spend the time or effort.Enter GENTLE GIANT! Panicked that we had just wasted thousands of dollars and 6 months of waiting, we found Gentle Giant online. Andrew provided one of the best customer service experiences we have ever had. He looked up our house on a real estate site and found the listing photos that showed the staircase. Then he looked at the furniture store's site and got the couch's measurements. He gave us our options and pricing...and then...told us he had a crew in our neighborhood with an opening and that he'd send them over in an hour or two. Scott and Scott showed up less than 2 hours later and had the couch upstairs and in place within 5 minutes. I spent more time waiting for the credit card processing than it took them to move the couch. They were also very friendly and reassuring during a stressful situation.We'd definitely recommend Gentle Giant!

Our crew was fantastic! They were extremely friendly and courteous, and everything was done with incredible care and speed. And in the end my bill was lower than the initial estimate. Top marks all around!

Our move couldn't have been easier! Super responsive and friendly office team with quoting, providing COI, and scheduling. The crew that did our move was on time (early actually, which was very much welcome), very friendly, professional, and eager to please. Everything went smoothly, and stayed within the quoted price range. Thanks again!
