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 moved during the Covid-19 time period and they were one of the only companies to take the job. They were professional, pleasant, and made us smile during a difficult time. We would recommend this company to anyone we know.

Overall the movers where nice and pleasant. However it took 10 hours to move an 1800 sq ft row home 20 miles away. We also had to pay for their lunch hour at $260/hr. We had a couple broken items (One of the movers was honest about one of them) we only discovered our broken bed frame once we attempted to put it on the wall. They also spilled dirt on the floor of the old house and didn't clean it up. Overall we are moved but it took a long time and had a couple items broken. Not the greatest value IMO.Edit: finding more broken pieces. And I was also told that the movers said I told them to leave dirt on the floor. I'm also being told that the crew of 4 didn't take a lunch during a 10.5 hr day.Edit2: The company reached out and acted as if they wanted to resolve this. Had me fill out some claim forms and such. I did all this and now they have gone silent for 2 plus weeks.

I've used a few different moving companies and Gentle Giant was by far the best. My movers were Slaven and Stephen, who were both so great. They were very thorough and efficient. Couldn't say better things about this company and my movers!

I recently used Gentle Giant for the second time and both moves went smoothly. Jeremy and Steven were great: on time, efficient, personable, and careful with all of my belongings. They even went above and beyond to help with some donations and patio furniture I had not originally planned to have them move. I will definitely use them again in the future and have already recommended them to friends.

I moved within Philadelphia with Slaven and Matt. They were simply amazing. They turned my nervous feeling to comfortable and happy during the entire moving. The most efficient work manner ever. Honest and trustworthy. These guys are the best among all moving services I've ever used in multiple countries (e.g. US, UK, Australia). I would call them again without hesitation in the next move.

First time using movers and everything from start to finish was perfect! Gentle Giant Moving Company could not have made it any easier! I even had to make adjustments to my quote several times (over-night storage to no over-night storage) and they were always happy to help and reassure. My moving crew (Matt - Steve - Jeremy ) was impeccable! They moved out a 3 bedroom apartment with a 3 story walk-up into another 2 story walk-up in less than 6 hours! They tackled every obstacle with tenacity and were always kind when we asked for help. They were extremely professional and kept their masks on during the move. If I could request a moving crew - I would 100% request these three.

Amazing and professional. I am above and beyond satisfied with these movers. I highly recommend them. Everyone was professional, super kind and easy to work with. These movers work fast but they did an incredible job. Not one complaint from me at all.

The Gentle Giant Movers were amazing - professional, on-time, incredibly kind and able to solve problems on-the-fly (like a king-sized bed frame that didn't fit up a windy staircase, or the fact that though I had city permits, the city hadn't marked off the parking spaces in time.) The packing was done very quickly, carefully, and not a thing was damaged or broken, and the unloading was also fast and careful, and again, very accommodating - they even rearranged the living room furniture for me twice to make sure it was OK before they left. I've moved many times and have never had such a good moving experience. Highly, highly recommend.

These guys were non-stop awesome. I honestly didn’t think they could get it done in one truck, but they blew my mind. They were kind, courteous, professional (insert any positive adjective you can think of). I hope I never move again, but if I have to, they made it seem doable. Five stars across the board.

My crew was very efficient, very friendly, helpful and quick in both loading and unloading the truck. They were so nice, and treated everyone with respect and courtesy. I could not be happier with the service they performed, and they made my moving day so much less stressful!

HATBORO, PA Move

Our moving experience was exceptional. They arrived on time and gave us a courtesy call ahead of time. I was able to show them where to park and gave them an overview of their options. They took some time to position the truck and loaded our boxes very quickly as well as our larger items.

We were able to make it to our house before them even though we left after but my assumption is they stopped for gas and are limited to a specific speed causing this. Unloading was very straight forward and they were able to complete everything with minimal direction.

They went over the bill with us to ensure we were aware of everything and did a walk through to confirm it was to our satisfaction.

The crew was amazing. I can not say enough good things about them.
We are retired military and as such accustomed to frequent moves. With that being said this has been the smoothest move ever thanks to the crew.
We have recommended you to our realtor to add to his go to list as well.

My movers were absolutely incredible. I was so skeptical about hiring movers because I’ve heard some horror stories. My movers were on time, efficient, and some of the nicest people I have ever met. They came prepared to do whatever was needed to make my move as easy as possible. They handled my belongings with so much care and made sure everything was packed and wrapped so that nothing ended up broken or missing. They went above and beyond and I am recommending gentle giant to anyone I know who needs movers.
