About San Francisco

Situated in Northern California, the sunny city of San Francisco is known for its steep streets, Dungeness crabs, quirky neighborhoods, and rich history. Founded by Spanish colonists in 1766, the city experienced major growth during the California Gold Rush of 1849. The Rush brought with it a mass influx of people looking to strike it lucky, making San Francisco the largest city on the West Coast at the time. It was during this period that the denim jean was born, as Levi Strauss sought to design durable yet comfortable clothing for the Gold Rush miners. However, San Francisco’s rapid growth came to a startling halt following the infamous earthquake and fire of 1906 which saw three quarters of the city destroyed.

Over time, San Francisco has become a mega popular tourist destination with over 25 million visitors to the city each year. The Golden City boasts famous landmarks and attractions like the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary, and its over 150-year-old cable car system. San Francisco is also home to unique neighborhoods like Haight-Ashbury, Marina District, North Beach, and Fisherman’s Wharf. Residents of Fisherman’s Wharf neighborhood can enjoy a cup of clam chowder at one of the many waterfront restaurants while taking in the sunbathing seals of Pier 39.

The team at Gentle Giants is very efficient. They work well together to get a big job done in a short amount of time. They also are careful about moving fragile items. We use Gentle Giants often and highly recommend.

Best moving experience! Gentle Giant is very well organized, emails and phone calls were responded promptly, inventory were accurately recorded. The three guys, Ray, Jaydon and Sean, came to do the pick up and drop off were hard working and very friendly. They were extremely careful at moving and assembling the furniture. We requested to make adjustment of the legs of the queen size bedframe, they gladly did it, and they also made sure we were happy with where everything was placed. It was a very stress free experience, I highly recommend Gentle Giant Moving Company!

We had a great experience with Gentle Giant! From receiving the original estimate to completing the move, everyone was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Dominic, Cesar, Justin, and Shawn finished our move quickly and with no hiccups!

The Gentle Giant team was amazing once again! I have used them 3 times over the last 10 years and would absolutely recommend them to anyone moving near or far. They were flexible in scheduling, very responsive, and everything on moving day went really well!

Friendly, professional, and handled a 7' grand piano with care (turns out some of their crew are piano specialists who used to move pianos for Steinway).Everything arrived very well packaged with no leakage or damage. Would use again.

Dominic, Isaiah, Sunny, Kenzo did an amazing job moving all of our many boxes, furniture, and many many plants (including a very tall fiddle leaf fig). It was a great move thanks to their assistance and hard work. Appreciate it!

I highly recommend Gentle Giant Moving. We've been dreading the move, and dreading the search of finding a trustworthy move team who would move our belongings with care. Not only does Gentle Giant offer moving services, but they also offer packing services! They packed and moved our whole kitchen of fragile-ware in addition to our TV and furniture. Everything was packed and moved perfectly and professionally. Everyone I talked to, from the move team who showed up in person, to the person I spoke with to set up the move (and answered all of my questions) were all so professional. Definitely recommend Gentle Giant for any moving needs.

I was in dire need when another moving company bailed on me. Just needed a few pieces of furniture taken down a few flights of stairs into my van. Gentle Giant sent Dominic and Justin and I couldn’t imagine how nice and accommodating these two guys were. They were able to get to me within 2 hours of my call! They took great care of me, got it done very quickly and I couldn’t be happier with Gentle Giant’s service.
