Slaven Simunovic

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!

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!

I am a returning customer and cannot express enough (for the second time in four years) how seamless, professional and efficient Gentle Giant made my move. Scott Longmore, Slaven Simunovic and James Attica took great care of my belongings and continually asked if they could do more. My furniture/items arrived at my new location undamaged and placed exactly where I wanted. Attitudes were “can do” and pleasant.I HIGHLY RECOMMEND GENTLE GIANT for any sort of move service. Thank you Again!!!!

Scott, Alizee and James were phenomenal! They were extremely professional and patient. They helped me lay out each room and allowed me to direct them where I wanted all of my pieces to go in each room. They took the time to walk through with me beforehand to map out various items that were staying and going. They were efficient with their time and moved quickly from room to room. Moving is stressful and this crew helped ease my anxieties on the day of. I would HIGHLY recommend gentle giant moving company. If we ever have to move again, I will not think twice about hiring this company again!

The movers broke numerous furniture pieces moving items too quickly even with our comments of please be gentle and slow down. A dresser drawer fell from a movers hand that was skipping (yes skipping), and he lost control of his footing and broke the drawer in front of us. Then a chest was scratched up that is one of our most favorite items that we possess. A bookcase was not put back together because the crew forgot to bring the hardware to the house. The crew leader (I think Jeremy) said he would be back the next day and I waited all day awaiting a call and his return of the hardware and putting back together the bookcase. He came back the day after I called corporate but only after he was done at another site, and was hours later than he stated he would be. The bookcase was put back together improperly and it still broken. Also, we found out a few months later that our guest bed frame was put back together missing 3 structural screws and could have broken on any one of our guests sleeping. I had to go to the store to get the missing hardware and reassemble our bed frame to make it safe. I will never ever use Gentle Giant again and due to the horrible experience we had and I will use word of mouth to steer people away from this moving company.

Five stars all around! From the initial phone call with the sales rep, to the movers, to the call from the owner to check in - bonus, they give back to the community! Moved me out of one house into another in less than 5 hours!! WHAT?!! I don't have one negative thing to say - even the price was super reasonable! I wish I had an excuse to use them again soon!

I would recommend over and over again. Such a great service. Andrew and Slaven were amazing, helped me unroll carpets at new place and reorganize my space so it felt like home instead of a new house I had to unpack. Best money I spent.

They got me moved with a short timeline and gave me a great price! I felt prepared before the move the guys were speedy and gentle with my things. Definitely the folks to go with if you're moving into the city!
