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!

My experience with Gentle Giant was great. The team was professional and super responsive since I first reached out. My moving squad arrived right on time, they were a great bunch of guys and everything went well with no damage to anything. My moving cost did swell a bit over what was quoted, but I definitely added a bunch of things that I thought I would've moved myself. All in all I felt it was very fairly priced. Scott, Evan and Matt did a great job -- thanks again guys.

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.

We needed two nights of storage during our move and Gentle Giant was able to accommodate that without a problem. Slaven and his team were extremely helpful and careful, came in under budget, and made sure that everything was set-up before they left. Highly recommended.

We found Gentle Giant through online reviews while looking for movers for a local move. Having had terrible experiences with movers in the past, we wanted to avoid companies that would give us bad service. The estimate process was simple and accurate, using cell phone videos we got an estimate in a couple of days. The packing and moving process was above and beyond, Slaven and his crew carefully packed and disassembled our furniture and moved everything to the new house. Not a single item was broken, and we had well over 100 boxes. They also moved an insanely heavy upright piano! All of this was done while the crew maintained an amazing attitude, smiling and joking but staying on task. Moving is a stressful project but these guys made it as painless as possible. Finally, our move came in below estimate! Gentile Giant was amazingly professional service at a very reasonable cost. We will use them for all our future moves!!!

This was our third move with Gentle Giant and they are as good as ever. This was a 2 part move: 1st they packed and moved a smaller load of furniture and belongings for us into a temporary apartment. 2nd they came back 2 days later and packed the rest of our furniture and belongings and moved it into a self storage facility. Everything went exactly as planned. They arrived on time, worked hard all day and got it all done on schedule. The guys were all great - super nice, very professional and skilled at what they do. We continue to recommend Gentle Giant to all our friends.

This was my second time using Gentle Giant for an in-state move. I went back to them because the first time was a stress-free, easy move and the second time was exactly the same. The team arrived on-time and worked diligently packing and loading and then later delivering. They guys were great and took a huge burden off of me, not having to worry about packing and acquiring all the needed materials to pack an entire house. They are a well oiled machine, definitely recommend using these services in Philadelphia!

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.

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!
