Gentle Giant Movers have handled all my domestic moves since 1999, including my most recent move last month -- and they continue to set the standard for professionalism, kindness and quality. Lupe and his South San Francisco team went above and beyond to make sure all of our belongings made the move without any issues. My wife is a cooking instructor so have A LOT of ceramics, fine china and glassware - all which were unharmed.Famed American Composer John Williams was who referred me Gentle Giants originally (they were the only team he let move his prized Piano) and I equally endorse and recommend them for your own prized possessions!

Would definitely recommend for any future moving plans. Our original movers, 'different company' were unable to get the second half our our sofa up to the second floor living area, 5 guys spent an hour scratching their heads and finally gave up and left 2nd piece of sofa in the garage.Contacted Gentle Giant Moving company, they scheduled a crew of 3 people for the following weekend, which was about 5 weeks before anyone else i contacted could even think about scheduling our appointment. Crew of 3 arrived on time, wrapped the couch up in moving blankets, moved it below our 2nd floor balcony ,which leads into living area. They then put a large cardboard box beneath balcony, stood couch on end and lifted it onto box. 2 people then went to 2nd floor balcony and with the help of the remaining person on first floor, lifted and pulled the sofa right onto the balcony and into the living room. Probably took them 10 minutes total. Definitely knew what they were doing..

I've used Gentle Giant twice, and been very happy with their work. Navigated the challenges of parking on SF streets impressively, and, remembered me when they moved my stuff a second time. Would recommend!

Gentle Giant Moving Company made my moving experience painless and stress free. They arrived on time, they were super fast and made multiple stops all three of the locations were on the second floor. They did not scratch or break Gentle Giant Moving Company.

Gentle Giant has been outstanding several times for us and our most recent move was the most complicated. They are always responsive, customer-focused, positive, and the folks packing and moving have been skilled and easy to work with. With the potential for headaches and heartaches, Gentle Giant has always come through for us with great people and service.

Always great customer service and very responsible. I’ve used Gentle Giant for my storage and moving needs over the past few years and they’ve been pleasant to deal with. On the day of moving, they let me know when they were on their way and if they were running late. They promptly dealt with my HOA to provide evidence of insurance. Last year I had to access some personal items from my storage unit and they let me come onsite to comb through the vault where they had kept my items at no charge (but I tipped them anyway). Highly recommended!

Amazing company, they were very upfront and honest about limitations for the move we had in mind. Instead of ending the conversation since we obviously wouldn't be able to use their service, they gave us a lot of information to best help us in our situation. Incredibly professional, very sincere and genuinely interested in helping people with their moves.
