Javier and his team are fabulous. I would recommend them to anyone.


Leesburg, VA Move

The kindness and professionalism of the crew. They went the extra mile and were genuine. Moving is stressful, but they created a vibe that was calm and helpful. I’d forgotten to take down a curtain rod and had no drill, but the crew immediately put me at ease saying they would take care of it.

The moving team was great. There were some obstacles to move furniture but Octavian and Nathan worked through them and got everything done in good time and efficiently. The team was also very friendly and professional.

Annandale, VA Move

Paul and Henry were efficient, professional, and punctual. They kept me updated every step of the way and made my moving process so much easier. I was also extremely happy with the pricing and feel that Gentle Giant is absolutely the best deal in town. The office staff was also quick to answer any questions I had and Dominique was super friendly.

”Everyone at Gentle Giant Moving Company were professional, hard working, efficient, and considerate. They showed up at 7:30 AM sharp, which I know is not typical for other moving companies, and worked with our schedule since we both work during the day. They also took their shoes off when they were inside on the carpet! The movers carried a heavy china cabinet with glass and mirrors, and successfully hoisted it over the deck outside to get it on the second floor. They came prepared with extra material to wrap the china cabinet, extra strong ropes, and tools. They even helped set up the china cabinet after they secured it in place – tightened the screws and adjusted the mirrors to ensure they were straight. Overall, they went above and beyond to ensure that we were satisfied at the end of the job. We would hire them again to do any move in the future.”
