Wonderful experience being moved by Gentle Giant. The team of four was careful, efficient, and did a great job from start to finish. They disassembled furniture and reassembled on the other side, carefully wrapped fragile items, made tremendous efforts to get our couch indoors, and were overall really easy to work with. Couldn't have asked for better movers!

Dex and Dakarai were professional, kind, and quick movers. They were respectful of my things and put me at ease during what could be a very stressful time. Everyone I spoke to, from the booking agent to the movers themselves, very helpful, respectful, and easy to communicate with. 100% recommend.

I used Gentle Giant Moving Company mid-July and my two movers were Andre and Ishmael. They were fantastic, working with me to overcome unexpected difficulties with parking the moving truck and my lateness in finishing packing. I felt they both had my best interests in mind and were careful, friendly, and efficient. I strongly recommend them without qualification!

Hello! I used Gentle Giant Moving Company today for a move. They were professional, friendly, and so incredibly helpful! I worked with the Veney brothers specifically. Any request/question I had was met with a "no problem". It made for an incredibly seamless move. Please book their services and request the Veney brothers (I'm not sure if this is possible). You will not regret it!!

My experience with Gentle Giant movers could not have been more positive. From the initial call through confirming our reservation the day before with Dominique, everyone on the phone was very helpful and kind as they walked us through the entire process.Moving day was the easiest I've ever experienced, and that is entirely due to the Gentle Giant Mover team. Dex, Chris, and Dakarai were incredibly professional and efficient in moving our third floor walkup to another third floor walkup (sorry about all the stairs!). They were such a joy to work with and so helpful. I would recommend GG to anyone who needs a moving service.

Best movers we have ever used ! A tree had knocked out our power, the house was dark and hot. They didn’t miss a beat or damage anything. Finished ahead of schedule even. We would use them again for sure.

Great moving experience from the first phone call, starting with Colin Moon. Easy, seamless & efficient. Dominique, the move coordinator was friendly & answered my questions.The 3 guys moving my belongings from storage to house, Matt, Paul & Chris were on time, friendly & professional and completely knew their trade, including moving a piano & other large pieces.They also followed their Covid policy and I was really impressed with that. It was all really easy with a nice price adjustment from the original over the phone estimate. I 100% recommend them to anyone without hesitation.

We used Gentle Giant for a short-distance move and will gladly rely on them for future requirements!Elmer, Andrei, and Brandon were extremely polite and professional from start to finish. They called us about 10 minutes before they arrived, were very methodical in wrapping all the furniture, and extremely safe manipulating some of our odd-shaped items through doorways and onto/off the truck. They moved at a deliberate pace, but were not careless in the slightest bit. Ask for these guys!The overall experience with Gentle Giant was great, easy, and really not stressful. They were responsive to any phone or email inquiries we had, flexible with our last-minute change to how large a team we needed for the house, thorough in their assessment of the house, and really competitively priced - zero hidden charges and the contract wording was plainly written.Again, a solid team and outstanding interaction with everyone on the Gentle Giant team!

Moving is hard and moving in July in the South is the worst but Gentle Giant movers made the move as painless as possible. The team was full of energy and efficient and made day go smoothly. Nothing broken or scratched up or damaged. Definitely worth every penny spent!

My moving experience with Gentle Giant was absolutely excellent. My movers, Gabe and Andrei, were efficient, careful, and very nice. They worked surprisingly quickly but were very careful with my items so I had no concern for damage. They are clearly professionals in this service, and part of a company that prioritizes hiring high-quality professionals. I have already recommended Gentle Giant to others for use and plan to use them for all of my future moving needs.

I will say they were very professional sounding on the phone but when you tell someone a date is available and then three days later ask them to push your move back a week it’s pretty messed up.I’ve already found a new company to move my stuff and the quote is $500 cheaper and they also have a ton of great reviews online. Seems like it might be worth shopping around before choosing this place.

I cannot speak highly enough about Gentle Giant Moving. They made my move the easiest I've had in a decade (and I've moved at least once per year every year in that time). Even the unpacking process was easier, because GGM had packed and labeled all my boxes in a way that made sense. They were fast, extremely nice, and dedicated to making sure we were happy with the final product. I've recommended to all my friends and will be using them for all future moves in the DC-area.

Gentle Giant packed up my daughters apartment in DC & stored The items in their facility for about a year. the move & monthly rate were great. The office staff was pleasant to deal with & the moving Guys were great. My daughter moved into another apartment at the end of May. I contacted Gentle Giant to have her items moved from storage to new apartment. The office was very accommodating & kept in constant contact with me. Can’t say enough about the movers, the Guys were Great! The stored items were in perfect condition (no damage), the cost of the move was excellent & the Guys went above & beyond what was required just to make me happy. Gentle Giant is an excellent company, I will use them for all my future moving & storage needs!

Gentle Giant was fantastic! I had to move during the pandemic which caused a lot of stress --when the first moving company I booked closed they referred me to Gentle Giant. Great experience! Gentle Giant found a way to stay open safely during a public health crisis and still provide an essential service. It made my move so much less stressful. The guys were on time, efficient, professional, and friendly and they wore their masks the whole time! I would definitely use this company again!

This company did an excellent job with our move from our DuPont circle apartment. We had many boxes, music equipment, kids toys, furniture, etc. Everything was moved quickly, nothing lost, nothing damaged. The crew was professional and friendly and quick to solve the various problems that arose. I had relatively little to do other than greet them, give them a quick walk through, and let them take care of the rest. All this and a reasonable price too! I strongly recommend Gentle Giant moving company, they are the best. Thank you!

They kept me informed of their timing and were very efficient and careful in packing my items. They made moving a breeze and assured me there was little to stress about. I can’t say enough good things about this company. Thank you!

Gentle Giant, your staff - from the estimator, to the guys who pick up the items to be moved, to the delivery team, to the office staff who coordinate the move, - they are all top class. Careful and caring. Thank you, Gentle Giant. We'll never use another company for our moves.

Gentle Giant did an incredible job with my latest move cross-town within DC this past weekend. Andre and his crew were so professional, efficient, kind and helpful. They were so patient and helped me resolve an issue with a piece of furniture that would not fit in my new apartment. I cannot recommend Gentle Giant highly enough. The communication leading up to the move was also so easy and friendly. Huge thanks to Gentle Giant for making this move such a success!

I am completing a basement renovation. Everything had to be removed from the basement, including the washer/dryer, and stored. I worked with Gentle Giant a few years ago to move and store a few rooms during the great living room and kitchen renovation of 2015. I had such a great experience working with Gentle Giant that I called them again for the great basement renovation of 2020. As expected, the Gentle Giant team was responsive, considerate, and helpful. Dominique Powell was so very patient with me planning the move over the phone while the contractors were jack hammering the concrete slab in the basement. I was all ready for the move when my contractor and I discovered a problem with the basement doorway. We had to remove a security gate since the washer/dryer would not fit through the door. I had to change the move date at the last minute. Krystal Gallatto was on it. She was accommodating and understood the issue and got me a new move date and time without any issues. The move crew, Elmer and Nathaniel, were professional, fast, and not at all bothered that they were working in the middle of a messy construction zone. They also took all necessary health and safety precautions since we are in the middle of the Covid-19 crisis. They were wearing the appropriate protective gear. Elmer and Nathaniel had my items out of the basement and neatly packed on the van in a flash. Gentle Giant is customer focused and professional. You simply can't go wrong trusting your move to Gentle Giant. I recommend Gentle Giant without hesitation.

Highly recommend using gentle giant for your move. Their prices are comparable and the company provides great service from scheduling to day of arrival and pick up. It’s easy to call or email for a quote. The day before your move, they call to confirm details. On the day of, they arrived within the 4 hr window and called 20 minutes before arriving. They are very professional and handle your items with care. They are efficient and help with anything needed (taking legs off chairs, taking down a bed). Thanks so much Jurca, Dex and Karai!

The Gentle Giant team (from the Coordinators to the actual moving crew) made moving so smooth, and almost easy. They were super responsive from the onset, flexible with a last minute change of dates, calm in dealing with a not so ideal parking situation, and extremely careful with tight spaces and my not so conveniently placed sprinkler system. I would definitely turn to them again for any future move.

Fantastic movers! Moving is usually awful but Donny and his crew at Gentle Giant made the experience as great as it can be. They were prompt, communicative, careful, hard-working, fast, and friendly. We went with them on the basis of their positive reviews, even though their quote was a bit more expensive than other companies, and they did not disappoint. Highly recommended!

I will definitely use Gentle Giant for my next move. They were extremely fast and efficient but also so careful with all of my furniture pieces and fragile items. They called the Friday before my move to confirm the time and called the morning of my move. They arrived on time and got right to work. I'm so impressed with how easy and fast this was. They even disassembled and reassembled a difficult slatted bed that I own. So impressed and very happy with the service! They're also very reasonably priced for the level of service given.

The team was very polite and professional. I felt safe leaving my belongings with them to load and unload. My move took longer than expected but the team was professional and friendly. I would have loved a coupon or something for them to come back and put things in the right place since I didn’t get it all sorted right. But that’s a small thing. I’ve used GG for about 10/11 moves. I’m definitely a fan.

I have to give the gentlemen from GG a perfect score because, not only were they very friendly and efficient, but I threw them a couple of major curveballs (very uneven stairs/walking surfaces and some extremely overgrown grass they had to carry things over). They took everything (literally) in stride and reassured me that it was all okay. They did their job very well, came in under estimate (despite the crazy stairs and me having a few more boxes than I’d expected) and were kind and patient with me and my nervous chatter. Erik and Rachael were also really friendly and helpful on the phone while setting up the move. I’ve already recommended GG to a couple of friends!
