About Seattle

Seattle is nicknamed the “Emerald City” because it is filled with greenery year-round. An abundance of rain keeps the city green throughout the warmer seasons, and it stays this way even during the winter months due to the many evergreen trees located throughout the city and surrounding areas. Admired by many nature enthusiasts, the backdrop to the city is abundant forests and mountains, and it is nestled between the Puget Sounds and Lake Washington. This makes it an ideal launching point to explore the natural beauty of the Pacific Northeast. It’s no surprise that there are currently over 730,000 people living within the city limits.

Seattle has something for everyone, and it’s easy to see why it is a popular destination. The city hosts numerous coffee shops (the home of Starbucks), breweries, and trendy restaurants. There are several interesting and iconic attractions including the Space Needle, Discovery Park, Chihuly Glass Garden, Museum of Flight, and the famous Pike Place Market. Sports enthusiasts can enjoy the Seahawks, Mariners, Kraken games or watch the Windermere Cup Regatta hosted by the University of Washington every spring. Seattle is also known for being one of the fastest growing technology hubs in the United States and is most famously home to both Amazon and Microsoft.

Gentle Giant was able to accommodate a quick turnaround on a move at a reasonable price. Jared and Paul were very professional, careful with my furniture, and happy to help out with some ad hoc requests. Would definitely recommend Gentle Giant for intra-Seattle moves.

We have used Gentle Giant twice now. Both times the movers have been on time, very courteous, and very hard working. We had one mover who was being trained during our last move and I was very impressed by the instructions that were given to the new trainee about how to move things properly and how to treat the customer. I certainly recommend using them!

This was my first experience with a moving company and I'm happy I picked Gentle Giant. Everyone involved in my move was so helpful, informative, and a general pleasure to interact with. For as anxious as I usually am during past moving days, these folks put me at ease and made this the most seamless moving day ever. Thank you, GG!

We used Gentle Giants for a move within Seattle and they were incredible!!! They were professional, showed up on time, took great care with our possessions and even kept us updated by phone on progress.It was even a pleasure dealing with the office staff regarding scheduling and getting the required insurance and licensing documentation for the move.If I ever move again, I’ll definitely use Gentle Giant.

The movers were super nice and helpful but be prepared to pay a lot more than the estimate! My estimate was $350 for 2hrs and ended up paying $560. Even though the move took under 2hrs, they added charges for the time to get from the warehouse to me- an extra 1.25 hrs in my case. Otherwise, they were great.

I can't speak highly enough of this company. The movers were incredibly professional and friendly, and moved quickly without rushing. They were gentle with both boxes and furniture, and brought along their own tools for disassembling anything that wouldn't fit through the door or stairwell.They respected the somewhat finicky rules of the HOA at the new location, and made sure that everything was positioned exactly where I wanted it. (I even changed my mind once, and they rearranged things for me.)My original plan had been to drop a piece of IKEA furniture off at Goodwill, but the movers told me that Goodwill often rejected anything from IKEA, and that although Gentle Giant would be happy to haul it to the landfill for me, it would be much cheaper to hire a junk disposal company. I decided to leave it behind and hire someone else, but I really admire their honesty.I recommend Gentle Giant to everyone now. It was such a fast and worry-free process. Nothing broken, nothing missing, and they didn't leave until everything was exactly where I wanted it.

Our experience has been very positive. The packing and moving folks were friendly, patient and really helpful. The organization folks are also friendly and responsive. It’s been a great experience and we look forward to the same level of service on the destination end of our journey. Highly recommended company.

Kenny and Craig were efficient, friendly, and very careful with my furniture. The friendly folks on the phone (Andrew and Rachael) were so supportive and helped me figure out a lot of move-related stressors too.

We've been using Gentle Giant for years, and we just completed our 6th move with them. First, they went out of their way to make one of our preferred moving dates work (it was a bit short notice on my end). They called a couple of days prior to the move to confirm everything, and the moving team showed up right on schedule.Our belongings were prepped and packed with care, loaded onto their 2 trucks, delivered to our new place, and unloaded and unwrapped quickly and efficiently. The team had the whole move completed for us in about 4 hours.Gentle Giant provides outstanding service, and uses outstanding people to help make moving a breeze. If we have to move again we'll use Gentle Giant again, and we recommend them highly!

Gentle Giant was a great moving partner. They were sure to double check everything each step of the way, from determining how much assistance I would need with packing, parking, and important/fragile items. My apartment was located in the heart of Belltown (Seattle) and not easy for a moving truck, but the team made it work and I appreciated their care. Moving can be a high stress event and I am happy I chose someone to put my mind at ease.

Highly recommend! We are so thankful for the amazing experience with Gentle Giant movers. Despite a snowy day, they arrived on time and quickly emptied our apartment. We had many valuable and hard to pack items, which they securely packed for us. Everything made it to our new place safely, and they unpacked the truck in no time. Thank you for everything!
