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!

This is by far the best moving company I have ever used! The customer service experience is top notch and with incredible levels of professionalism and attention to detail. From scheduling the appointment, loading and unloading...the entire process was brilliant. I strongly recommend Gentle Giant's services!

Great team, good energy, efficient and responded quickly to unforeseen events (excessive snow; neighbors ignoring the city No Parking signs). They moved some fairly heavy and sentimentally valuable items with care. Would definitely recommend!

We used Gentle Giant to move us over 2 days. They stored all of our belongings overnight and moved us in during a snow storm. They were very professional, friendly, respectful and hardworking. We could not be happier. Thank you so much to the great crew !

I planned this move from across the country. They are very professional. They did such an amazing job packing, moving and loading everything into a storage unit. The apartment was so clean when they left I'm not sure I needed to hire a move out cleaning service. I wish every company was like this company!

From the moment I spoke to Andrew about moving until the final item was placed in my new house, I was completely blown away by the customer services. Our movers, Andrew, Ken, and Sam were professional, fast, efficient and careful. We highly recommend this company!

I was recommended Gentle Giant Moving Company by my real estate agent who said that another of her clients used them and was very happy. Firstly, their website was great and allowed me to easily inventory all the pieces of furniture in my apartment that needed to be moved. It allows you to select the rooms you have in your residence and then takes you room by room and you can check off the types of furniture you have in each space. It made coming up with a list so easy! Scheduling a moving appointment was also easy, and a detailed price estimate was provided before the appointment holding deposit was paid. The company was also very responsive on both the phone and through email when I had to move my initial service date because of a delay in my house settlement.The day before moving they called to provide a time window and then called again on moving day when they were on the road with a more specific time estimate. Three movers worked with us and they were all friendly and professional. My apartment was down 36 steep steps and had a narrow hallway and they managed to get all of our furniture out and loaded on the truck carefully and quickly. The whole experience was wonderful and I would totally recommend their services to anyone in need of a moving company. Their prices were also more than fair, and my final bill was actually slightly lower than the initial estimate. All around, Gentle Giant made moving easy and less stressful even in the middle of a pandemic.

The Gentle Giant crew made a big out-of-state move about as pleasant and positive as it could have been. Milos, the leader, was a good communicator, calling to tell us when they would arrive each of the three days, and arriving on time. Milos also figured out how to pack a huge, 100-year old mirror from Venice in a safe way, suggested a way to arrange the sofas in the family room that worked well, and was responsive, positive and patient as we made adjustments with the furniture placement in the new house. His crew was energetic, efficient, and worked well together in all stages of the move - Ryan, Zach, Donny, Dex, Dakary, and Nate were individually and collectively just what one would want in a moving crew. Our impression was that they had been well trained in different moving techniques, and in sequencing different parts of the process (like what to load - and unload - when and how). Most of all, they were really nice, and clearly cared about doing a good job. Their good morale and strong work ethic was exceptional every step of the way! Thank you, Gentle GIant!

Just moved using gentle giants. The team was professional, responsive, thoughtful, fun and kind. Their pricing was more than reasonable and they worked their butts off to ensure we had a great experience. They made moving a multi bedroom house with large furniture seem easy. Thanking the team very much for the hard work and ease I had while working with them!! Book them quickly! They were able to accommodate our date and make two trucks work!

We were absolutely thrilled with Gentle Giant! Starting with George who came to our apartment to give us an estimate (masked and carefully social distanced, cheerfully) to Andrew who was the leader of the move itself, we were treated consistently with respect and kindness. Information was patiently given, and questions patiently answered. We are an older couple who were leaving Center City to move to the suburbs, and we were very nervous about Covid and all the contacts we were going to have in making our move. Both Andrew and George, as well as their three co-workers on the days of packing and moving, were aware of this and acted accordingly. The move was efficient, intelligently run, and all our belongings were handled with care.

The movers were all so professional and friendly especially given the circumstances of having to adhere to social distancing protocol. We very much appreciate their professionalism and sticking to wearing masks at all times. Additionally all our furniture got here safely and everything was in great order.

All three Gentle Giant crews – packing, moving, and delivery – for our move from Philadelphia to Martha’s Vineyard we’re fantastic – highly professional, prompt and on time, and accommodating. We couldn’t be more pleased with how seamless and easy they made this complex out of state move, even during the COVID crisis.

Gentle Giant was also the best price and value of the four moving companies we interviewed.

This was my third move with Gentle Giant, and every time you performed with excellence. Thank you!
