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.

I am very pleased to give my most enthusiastic recommendation for Gentle Giant Moving Company. Our crew (Kenny, Craig, and Corey) were friendly, efficient, and careful. All of our fragile belongings were packed with substantial padding and care, and our furniture was moved up several flights of narrow stairs without any damage to our new property or our belongings. The estimate they provided for the labor was on target and fair. Our destination had some parking challenges, and the crew navigated them with ease. We couldn't be happier with our move, and I will certainly look to use them again in the future for any Seattle area moves.

I’ve never hired movers before, so I was really worried about what to expect. The staff here were so good about answering all my questions beforehand, and took care of absolutely everything. I genuinely can’t thank them enough for taking this task which seemed so stressful and overwhelming and making it simple, quick and easy. Thank you!!!!!

Great company - very professional from start to finish. Found randomly online - set up was easy and everything explained very well. Movers on time - worked hard and were careful with attention to detail about what I needed. Pavel and Arijus were the movers and they were excellent. Will recommend to many family and friends

Used these guys on a 1B move within Seattle. Very impressive service from start to finish. Got a very thoughtful and complete bid, and then terrific communication about all of the details in the days before the move. When it came to move day itself, the guys were awesome. Easygoing and dealt with the inevitable small hiccups with so issues. Super hard-working, too. I would absolutely use again.

Pavel, Kyle, et al were nothing short of amazing. They never stopped hustling as they executed a logistically complicated move, and went beyond in unpacking. 11/10 would hire again.

Jared, Henri, and John were amazing! Friendly, professional, and very efficient. They disassembled and reassembled our bed frame, and made sure all of our furniture was placed where we wanted. 10/10 would recommend!

Had a great experience with Gentle Giants from end to end during our local move in Seattle. Very professional and clear communication. Our movers Craig, David, and Taras took their time and treated our items and space with respect. They took care to ask clarifying questions and meet our needs. Highly recommended.

Jared, Owen, and Kyle did a great job with our 2-bed move. I’ve been in our new place for a week now and all of our fragile items and equipment are working great and nothing is broken or missing. When one item was mistakenly left on the truck, Rachael and Jared worked to get it to me the next day. Great movers and great customer service.

I am so happy we hired Gentle Giant for our recent move from Renton to Vancouver! The movers were professional, hard-working, and they handled our belongings with utmost care. Our bedroom furniture is large, heavy, and mirrored. They gently moved it down a flight of stairs and then carefully wrapped everything to make sure it was protected throughout the move. I was very nervous about moving it but I am happy to report that everything arrived in perfect condition. They did everything we needed and more. We were very impressed with the level of service and care that we received. Moving is always stressful but Gentle Giant made the process as stress-free as possible. We won't hesitate to hire them again!

Wonderful experience with the team at Gentle Giant today. Managed a small but complex move smoothly and quickly, and were very accommodating of my knee issues.Andrew Henry was a machine, he was moving non-stop while also helping another resident in my building who was having issues with their storage container. Incredible and love the empathy.Devin Cartwell similarly didn't stop, but mostly we had a chance to chat at length and he is just a great employee and guy. Cared a lot about the making sure I was thrilled and shared some great stories from you all going above and beyond.It was a bit pricey but worth every dollar. Thank you. It seems most companies are racing to the bottom these days - but you all are different. It shows.

Gentle Giant moved me. I'm so happy that the Gentle Giant moved me. They were very polite and efficient. They handled my Grandfather clock and my old mirror as if they were their own. They packed the items that I had not yet packed. Everything arrived at my new home. Nothing was broken or damaged. These gentlemen should get a bonus for the great job that they did. If I do move again I will use the Gentle Giant.
