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.

Everything from getting an estimate to coordinating the move to move day itself was handled with speed, care, and detail. The crew worked with us to figure out where everything went, clarify intentions, and work with tight hallways, stairways, and an underestimate on my part for how much stuff we had. I'll definitely be looking to Gentle Giant again for any moving we need to do, and would highly recommend them ^^

I booked Gentle Giant to help a client move from Shoreline to Gig Harbor. My client was very happy with the professional performance of the team from the initial consult to the careful way the team managed furniture installation. Thank you for a great job!

Great movers! I’ve moved several times over the years and this was probably the best experience I’ve had. Fair pricing, great communication, efficient, on time, and the guys were very friendly and polite. I highly recommend them!

Decided to use Gentle Giant for our recent move since we had some furniture that needed extra care with handling. Past moving companies scratched/damaged our furniture. Gentle Giant promised white glove delivery handling and they followed through! Pavel, T, and Oleksander were amazing and handled our stuff with care. All of the stress with moving was completely eliminated. If/when I'm moving again, I know who to call.

Rik and his crew provided the best moving experience I’ve ever had.From a moving perspective, these guys were READY TO WORK. I don’t think they stopped moving from start to finish. They clearly know how to protect the fragile stuff, handled heavy stuff with ease, and were able to take about 46 trips up a three story house without making a dent in the walls (including bulky furniture and king sized bed).From a customer service perspective, they were out of this world. Rik made sure everything was clear, made everything simple, and ensured we got exactly what we wanted. All movers were kind (they each introduced themselves to me) and easy to work with (even if you asked them to carry something heavy down two flights…sorry guys.)10/10 would recommend this crew.

I want to give a shout out about how fabulous this team was!! They were friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, chill, ... I was so worried because I've never needed moving services, but they made it look like a breeze. I wanted to help a few times but they just said - we're okay.

Very grateful! Extremely professional and fast, no damage. Josh and his team really took care of us: they took competent charge for the handful of hours needed, getting us over the stressful hump from “my entire world is in disarray” to “now we can settle into our new home.” Would use again!!

I had a wonderful recent experience with Josh and his crew. The whole process was efficient, full of care for delicate stuff like my TV and framed art, and came in under budget. The team went above and beyond to ensure a seamless moving experience. I can’t recommend Gentle Giant enough.

Gentle Giant and their team were amazing. Our stuff was moved with care. Everything made it to our new place, and without damage. The walls and doors in both properties were left unscathed. The moving team was very communicative, kind, and helpful. The only reason I am giving a 4-star rather than 5-star is the quote. I feel we were very....very....accurate in our inventory of boxes, furniture, and distance to carry items. We also explained the challenge with stairs and skinny doors. However, we helped by tagging every box and room, as well as tagging placement of furniture in each room. Unfortunately, our final price tag was 44% higher than the top-end of our quote.Bottom line, we are fortunate enough to even afford a mover. These guys still saved our backs and stress level. It was worth every penny. It just would have been nice to not be that far over.Other than that, totally recommend!

We worked with Jared, Josue and Maxie and they are phenomenal. They were very careful with all of our furniture, and Jared was literally running back from the truck every trip, to save as much time as possible. We would recommend them to anyone who wants professional movers that know how to work fast and with care. Thank you!

For an unbeatable moving experience, go with Rik and his crew at Gentle Giant. They tackled a huge job in just one day, moving a ton of stuff from one seriously big storage space to another, handling each item like it was gold. They made sure nothing got a scratch or dent. Plus, they even took the time to put everything exactly where we wanted it in our new spot. With their friendly vibe, pro attitude, and serious dedication, Rik and his team turned what could've been a headache into a breeze.
