When Gentle Giant opened an office in San Francisco in 2011, we knew we had to find the right individuals that embodied the Gentle Giant culture of enthusiasm, excellent service, respect and teamwork. Rugby superstar Kenzo Hafoka was one of Gentle Giant San Francisco's first hires, and he has been a key factor in the office’s success. Kenzo is a true Giant and states that his favorite part of Gentle Giant is “working hard with hard working people.”

Outside of moving boxes and furniture, Kenzo enjoys camping, watching sports and above all else: singing in the shower!

I hired Gentle Giant to help move a top floor studio apartment to a top floor 1 bedroom -- no elevators and so many stairs! My boyfriend and I were impressed by Alex, Willis, and Jake not only in their agility in handling sharply curving San Francisco hallways, large heavy items, and 4 flights of stairs at each place, but with their professionalism and positive attitude throughout. The final cost was exactly what they quoted us, no surprises, everything made it through intact. I would definitely hire them again for moving in San Francisco!

Sadly a very poor experience. We moved a household plus an artist’s studio across country . The ‘ foreman’ of the crew was professional and seemed to know his stuff. I hired GG because I wanted to be sure our goods would not be off loaded somewhere across the country and they assured me they could move the artwork without damage. On arrival on the east coast boxes marked room x were placed in room y, an outdoor table was put together with numerous defects and splitting of the teak. The only really valuable antique had the top destroyed. But the most disappointing was a missing very large painting . As I intended to store until I had a show several months later I did not open all boxes immediately, so I did not realize it was missing. To their credit they had someone replace the antique...however, it was a 19th c piece so the value has declined. Re the painting they did promptly communicate with me and ongoing for a few months but refused to reimburse and advised me to seek recovery from our home insurance ( the deductible to meet was too high) . There were a lot of summer college students ( the guy putting the teak dining table together) so I would advise not using them during summer months.

We moved from the Bay Area to Southern California using Gentle Giant and they were outstanding! They communicated with us every step of the way, were prompt and professional, were ahead of schedule at every step, and didn't charge us a penny more than they originally quoted us. We highly recommend them!

Couldn't be happier that we used Gentle Giant! They were super informative, helpful, fast, and made our whole move much much easier on both ends. We packed most of our things ahead of time, but they were happy to help with the large/awkward/fragile items when they arrived. Everything was loaded and handled with extreme care, and everything arrived at our new home perfectly.

20 years ago, Gentle Giant Moving helped me move out of my crappy 1 bedroom apartment into a slightly less crapier studio apartment and they were amazing. Last week, they moved me and my family into our new 4 bedroom home in the heart of San Francisco. And both times, the teams were amazing to work with, courteous, respectful and really good at their jobs. They made the move incredibly easy and were flexible to the quirks and needs we had. I would strongly recommend them for any kind of move you have to go through.

I was disappointed that the third mover left the group after half the day. The was not expected and made the rest of the day slower.

Move out started a bit slow (first hour to hour and a half) with one mover tagging everything, one dis-assembling bed, and just one running up and down the stairs with the boxes, but went pretty smooth after that. All were very careful with everything. The move in was very quick and smooth, and again, all careful.

All in all, thought they did a great job, thought the price was quite reasonable, and would use again.

I’ve moved several times and most of them were very stressful. Matt was clearly organized and responsible, and it was very comforting to be able to trust the person leading the crew. All three guys were courteous and respectful of building rules while also taking care of our stuff. By far my best moving experience yet.

Well organized, responsive move ordering and estimate process, including the web page, and friendly helpers on line–Eric and Dominique Palmer. Courteous, efficient movers–Chris and Dominic.

I recommended to my daughter.

I was very impressed with how quick they were. They made me feel that they really new what they were doing. Because I was moving from one school to another, due to my school closing. They made me feel I was important.
