Good afternoon,I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to your company. You were able to fit me in the schedule very quickly and, for me, painlessly.I have had experience with moving companies numerous times through my many years in the military. I have to aay this move was notably above the rest. I would like to take the time to share my experience about the three men that came to move my household goods; Elmer, Javier, and Nathan. Please feel free to share this "review" as I plan to post it to Google, Yelp, and wherever else I can find.Initial impression: I was given an arrival time of between 8-830am. Elmer called about 15 minutes before arriving as a courtesy to let me know; they arrived right at 8am. I walked out to meet them and was quickly introduced to all three men. They all presented with a neat appearance, pleasant demeanor, and professionally respectful introduction; firm hand shake, eye contact, and let me steer the pace a bit. The vehicle itself appeared to be well maintained as there were no peeling graphics or paint; it was also very clean in the cargo area and the outside had obviously been recently washed. Beginning the work: After a walkthrough of the premises, for orientation and assessment, Elmer went over the intial pre-move documents. He explained them succinctly and answered any questions that came up, highlighting any areas that may have been cause for extra care or caution. They all three pitched in to bring in packing supplies.During the work: Immediately I can see that these three know the benefit of teamwork. They have either worked together before or already laid a plan out before arriving as there was no discussion on who was going to do what. This was made clear as I had already packed a few things in plastic totes; Javier immediately started taking them out to the truck, Nathan moved to the Master Bed/Bath to begin packing, and Elmer started in on the kitchen. By this time it is perhaps 820am.When a box was packed, it was carried to the truck; that Javier is a machine! Elmer was packing like a speed demon in the kitchen, and Nathan was setting speed records packing the bedroom. Meanwhile, I'm sitting here watching the rooms empty at an astonishing rate, did I mention these guys worked quickly and efficiently? Granted, I had packed many items in totes already and left the more fragile items to the professionals. Even so, it would have taken me easily 8 hours to pack the remainder of items. From the time they arrived to the time they pulled away was around 2.5 hours, maybe less as I wasn't paying that much attention to my watch.Completing the work: It was a 30 or so minute drive to the new place, so we all got here around 11am. Upon arrival we did another walkthrough to orient them on what rooms were where. Fortunately parking isn't an issue here and they were able to back the truck up right in front of the new place. They opened the truck up and proceeded to unload the contents into the house. About 45 minutes later they are done. While Javier and Nathan were packing up the supplies, picking up odds and ends and closing the truck, Elmer and I went over the final paperwork and payment. Due to their efficient teamwork and diligence the bill actually came in UNDER the MINIMUM quoted by about $100.Summary: The entire time, all three men acted in a manner that was above reproach. They were all extremely professional, polite, very well mannered, and in no way did I ever have the slightest doubt that my household goods were in good hands; something I cant say about the majority of movers that I've had experience with.If you want a top notch, best bang for your buck, professional crew to move your household goods, Gentle Giant Movers is the way to go!

Hired Gentle Giant Moving company to move us into our new townhouse this last weekend. Bottom line, they were amazing. Fast as hell while still being careful with all the valuables. Pure professionals. Seriously, these guys were great all around. Will definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone looking for movers.

Wonderful experience - super happy. We did an “in-house” move - basically needed help reorganizing the house, moving boxes from the basement to the attic, moving furniture out to the curb / different rooms. Gentle Giant movers were incredibly helpful, patient, and efficient. Knocked everything out in 3 hours (it was a lot). We will definitely be calling them again whenever we decide to move. Highly recommend.

They moved my partner and I from a 2 bedroom apartment In SE to a row house in NE. They were careful to wrap everything, including mattresses, and everything arrived without damage. Be aware that you are renting wardrobe boxes, the bins they use to move stuff in, and any materials they use including tape - that came to an extra $200 in my case. They aren’t the cheapest in town, but if you want you stuff to arrive undamaged, I definitely recommend them. This is the second time I’ve moved with them and likely not the last...

Moving is stressful and I can’t express enough how thankful I was for gentle giants. I have actually used them 3 times and this last time I was moving a whole house. Dex, Donny, Paul and Andres worked really well together, were on time and created a positive experience. They even came in under the estimate. I was very impressed and highly recommend them.

Gentle Giant Moving Company, was a great alternative to having to purchase new furniture. My furniture was too large to be moved upstairs to a 3rd floor loft. I was really impressed with their customer service, pricing and proffesionlism of service.

I have used Gentle Giant Moving Company three times now and they never disappoint. They are literally the best moving company I have ever used. Every mover has been friendly and quick! Saving money is important to me so having quick and efficient movers is great! This past time Paul and Milos moved me and they moved me in two hours and fifteen minutes with a smile on their faces. They were so nice to work with. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for professional movers. Thanks guys!

The two gentlemen I had helping me move did an unbelievable job. These guys were in a hussle! I did a fair amount of making it easy to move out of my apartment (put all the movables into one room) and these guys cleared out my 1BR apartment in less than 45 minutes.When we got to my new building we had to stand around until management freed up the loading bay - they were calm and collected the entire time and really made it feel a lot less stressful. Once we had access to the moving dock they got everything into the apartment in just over an hour.When I inevitably move again, I'll be using their services without question.

I had a small move - a one bedroom apartment, 15 minute drive from the old place to the new. The quote I was given was spot on, the person I spoke with took the time to explain everything! Move Day. Movers were on time, professional, and friendly. My entire move took 4 hours, which I was quoted. They moved fast, took no breaks, and took good care of all items. Movers Henry Muller and Caleb(WDC) Tanenbaumare GREAT! Ask for them by name!

Definitely the best. I’ve packed and unpacked with their guys, and hands down the best treatment over several moves with many different companies across the country. I found them on Yelp, and I’m glad I did!! If I ever need to move in the area, or have friends that do - I’ll always recommend Gentle Giant. A+!

Absolutely flawless execution by Nick, Donnie, and Dex for my move to Washington DC. They arrived early, had me digitally sign all the waivers, and moved like a well oiled machine with their specific tools. Emptied my packed 15 foot U-Haul truck in an hour, neatly placed everything in my apartment with the utmost care. They were extremely professional, courteous, and friendly. Received a follow up email and my receipt electronically. I’ve never used a more amazing service company from start to finish.

Fast, efficient, and caring. What more can I say; Gentle Giant did all the right things in the right way. They arrived when they said they would, they loaded quickly, which by the way do not leave any packing for the day of the move. The crew were friendly without being artificial about it, and they came in under the estimate. If there is anything I would like improved it is the communication with my sales rep.

The Gentle Giant Moving Company did an EXCELLENT Job with our 2 stage in-house move!!. Arriving on time--they professionally in a very nice and helpful manner moved our furniture from room-to-room as we requested. My husband and I were very satisfied with their care and respect for our home and furniture. We had used their services before and we will use their services again. We Highly Recommend The Gentle Giant Moving Company.

Gentle Giants were professional, organized, and thoughtful every step of the way! I couldn't have had a better experience with them. They even fixed the broken leg on one of our dressers (broken before the move)! Of all our moves (in-city & cross-country), this one was the best team we've worked with.

We were delighted with the service at Gentle Giant, from the moment someone arrived for the estimate, to the last box placed in the room it was labeled for. The packing was efficient and careful, and the reconstruction of the beds and sofas was thorough and accurate. Thank you!

These guys have to be one of the best full service moving companies around. Scheduling was easy and efficient, they showed up when scheduled. They performed everything they said they would do in an efficient manner. They checked everything before starting and were always quick to show any existing damage before moving. I know this covers them, but you can be sure they didn't do it.If there was ever any doubt as to what needed to be done they always asked and never assumed.All of the boxes were clearly labeled. And at delivery they made sure everything went where it was wanted in the new location.After everything was done they walked thru one more time to see if you wanted anything moved now that you saw it in the new location.If I have to I would definitely use these guys again.

I cannot recommend Gentle Giant highly enough. They arrived promptly and packed up our apartment seamlessly, also getting to our new apartment efficiently. They protected our furniture and assembled/disassembled it effectively. I give them 4 stars simply because they did break one of the drawers in our storage bed, but they gave us a discount and glued the drawer back together for us (the drawer was still usable, the damage was cosmetic).

Gentle Giant is awesome!! I had read very impressive reviews on them before deciding to move with them. They are on time, personable, efficient, attentive and very accommodating. Available and willing to help however they can and protect your items. I had two plants (one very tall) and the mover offered to take the plants out of the truck that evening so it could get air, and he called the next day to the movers that were going to transport my items 3 hrs. away, to remind them to put the plants back in the truck. Really!!!! Yes Really!!! I've moved many a time as a military spouse over a 16 year period and they were the best I've ever experienced. I highly recommend them.

We've moved house 5 different times with 5 different movers. We will not use anyone but Gentle Giant in the future. They were INCREDIBLE. The crew was totally professional, worked incredibly hard (practically running back to the house after carrying a load!), and were very, very careful with not only our stuff, but our new house. It was first time I have ever moved where there was zero damage - not even a scratch. They prepared the move-in site with runners, put down felt sliders under the furniture, etc. Their price was about 10% higher than the other guys we've used in the past but they were worth every penny and then some!!!!

This is the 2nd time I’ve used Gentle Giant for moving services, and if I ever fine myself moving again, they’ll be my first choice (not that I ever want to move again!) My crew, Andre, Dominique, Stratton and Sergiu, arrived right at the time they said, even after struggling to figure out the numbering system of my apartment complex. I had everything packed and ready when they arrived, so we did a quick walk through so I could explain what had to move, and they were off and running – literally, I heard them running up and down the 3 flights of stairs. The crew had to deal with weather that wasn’t the greatest, as it started raining part of the way through the loading of the truck, but they didn’t let it phase them. When we arrived at my new house, they were ready to go. Another quick walk through to tell them where I wanted stuff and they were off and running again. Even when we ran into issues with my box springs going up the stairs, the team didn’t slow down. They finished my move in 5 hours! I thought for sure it would take longer than that, but I guess I shouldn’t have doubted the superior staff that Gentle Giant uses. They even gave ME a thank you card for using them again, and it’s still sitting on my coffee table.

This is an outstanding family-oriented moving company. They smoothly and skillfully conducted a multi-state move from my mother's apartment to four different locations. All the movers were highly competent, intelligent, flexible-minded, careful, and kind. I give them my highest praise and unqualified recommendation.

Wow! I honestly cannot say enough good things about my experience with Gentle Giant. This was my first interstate move, and just the thought of it was very overwhelming. But Gentle Giant are pros and made the whole process easy. From my first conversation with David R., to the home estimate walk through, to getting all of the details squared away with our Moving Coordinator Sudi R., I felt good in the days leading up to our move. With our old home on the market, we didn't have the luxury of packing ourselves, so we opted to have the Gentle Giant team pack for us. Everything was packed with extra care and very efficiently. I was amazed at how fast the packing team got everything boxed up and ready! I am so grateful for our Move Chief Octavian J.'s thoroughness, attention to details, and professionalism. And he was very pleasant to work with! (Give that guy a raise!) The move out and unload teams were speedy and very careful not to damage and walls, ceilings, doors, etc. And I should mention, that they were a very affordable option. It was overall a stress-free experience. Thanks Gentle Giant! You all are awesome!

I've moved a fair share in my life and these guys are by far the best moving company I've ever used. Gentle Giant helped me and my family move in March 2012 and it was the second time I've used them (first time in summer 2009). They did an excellent job both times and I will certainly use them again when we have another move. The initial estimate from the online form I submitted was much higher than we were expecting, but I called them to discuss and they sent someone out within a few days to look around and give us a more accurate quote.We haven't used their packing services yet, but plan to when we move again. Brett F., Gabe S., and Milos M. did a terrific job during this most recent move. They arrived a few minutes early and worked quickly, but carefully. We had them moving mostly heavy/awkward pieces of furniture and they moved them with ease. At the new house, I had actually incorrectly measured an upstairs interior doorway, so one piece of furniture didn't fit through, but they didn't complain about having to bring it back down the stairs and into a different location. They even helped us troubleshoot ideas on getting it into place!Thanks Gentle Giant for another great move!

The guys were easy to deal with and they went out of their way to offer me a ride over to the town I was moving to. I contacted several moving companies to prepare for this move, and only Gentle Giant got back to me in a timely manner and with an actual quote. Surprisingly, no other company in the Puget Sound area could manage that.

The only downside here is that my card was not swiped at the location. I wasn’t expecting that and since I rode with the guys, I didn’t have a chance to get money to cash tip them.
