About Washington DC

Washington, D.C., the capital city of the U.S., is named after the nation’s first president and one of its four Founding Fathers, George Washington. It is one of the most important political capitals of the world and three branches of the U.S. federal government are centered in the district: Congress, the legislative arm of the government, presides in the U.S. Capitol Building. Meanwhile, the president (executive) and the Supreme Court (judicial) sit in the White House and the Supreme Court Building respectively. Given its political significance it is no surprise that Gentle Giant moves copious aspiring politicians, public servants, journalists, and many more to the nation’s capital every year.

Aside from its historical and political significance, Washington is also brimming with culture. The city was designated a national center for the arts due to its wide selection of art institutions. The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is home to the National Symphony Orchestra, the Washington National opera, and the Washington Ballet. There are also a plethora of museums and galleries for visitors and residents alike to tour. The Smithsonian Institution is the world’s largest museum complex and includes the National Museum of Natural History, the National Air and Space Museum, and the National Portrait Gallery. Meanwhile, the historic Ford’s Theatre, site of the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln, functions as a performance space as well as a museum.

Andre Eilers is Gentle Giant's Washington DC Regional Manager. He began his career with Gentle Giant back in 2012 when he moved to the US from his home country of Germany, and he has been with the company ever since, quickly progresses from mover to manager. His favorite things about working for GG include the ability to see different places and meet different people everyday, the physical aspect of the work, and 'the feeling of reward you get after a hard day of work.'

Andre credits his time at Gentle Giant with learning how to improvise and adapt to any given situation at any time on a move. 'Every day is different, and no two moves are the same. Each move presents its own set of challenges. I have learned to improvise and think on my toes to get the job done quickly and efficiently for our customers over the years.'

A graduate of the University of Bonn in Germany, Andre has a master's degree in Sociology, Philosophy, and Political Science. Outside of work, he enjoys traveling, reading, writing, and collecting records. He also loves to work out and he is a very familiar face at the Gentle Giant DC warehouse gym where many Giants gather to workout together in the mornings and evenings.

Branch Manager
When Kieffer started with Gentle Giant’s DC office, he quickly established himself as a leader. As a lifelong basketball player, he was prepared for the hustle, teamwork and focus expected of a Giant. Now a manager, Kieffer thinks of himself more as a coach, working with new Giants to help them reach top performance.

As is the case in every regional Gentle Giant office, Kieffer and his team preach and live a healthy lifestyle. This is probably why several of our locations have repeatedly been recognized as a Healthiest Employer, including DC in 2020.

Outside of work, Kieffer enjoys traveling, playing basketball and working out with his fellow Giants. You'll often find him in the DC warehouse gym bright and early before a move as he loves the fun competitive nature that exists when working out with his colleagues.

Absolutely the best moving company I have used over the last 10 years and highly recommend Gentle Giant. The team contacted me the morning of the move to keep me posted of their arrival time which was on-time. A team of three professional and friendly men showed up, and they went to great lengths to safely pack/wrap up items. My move was into their storage facilities, and am relieved that all it will take is one phone call to have the next stage of delivery taken care of. Hire Gentle Giant for your move!!

Conor, Karun and Octavian arrived on time, worked efficiently, wrapped furniture carefully and interacted with us politely. Unfortunately, one of our furniture pieces was too large to be carried up the stairs of the new property. The guys patiently returned the item to the old property where we will be able to deal with it. Really appreciated their patience and professionalism.

This is my second time using gentle giant. They are excellent. They packed, moved us to an apartment and storage unit, dissembled and reassembled our furniture, some of which was pretty complicated. They were all extremely prepared and efficient. And friendly and helpful as well. They even fixed our screen door that was broken. I would always use gentle giant.

Only good things to say about this move. Very easy to arrange, Dominique handled logistics very well, and the movers — Milan and his colleague — did a terrific job. Based on this experience, I highly recommend them.

We hired Gentle Giant for our move earlier this month and were impressed by how professional and responsive they were. Javier and the team who performed the move and some of the packing were careful, efficient and listened to our concerns on which rooms we needed furniture in first. They were extremely polite and appreciate the care they took in our things. Would definitely recommend them and work with them again in the future.

Just did a local move in Washington D.C. with movers Dex and Dave and it was excellent! They were very efficient yet careful moving all of my furniture. I was impressed by how detail-oriented they were handling all of my belongings and how they made an effort to get the job done as quickly as possible. The cost was less than the original estimate provided and they even packaged up my two lamps with their materials free of charge. Additionally the two movers were very friendly and courteous throughout the move, making sure everything was arranged to my liking. Overall great experience and would recommend!

I had a tremendous moving experience with Gentle Giant. My movers (Conor and Dusan) were extremely efficient; they completed the move (a one-bedroom apartment having its stuff transported from one city to another) in about 4 hours total. They were professional and polite throughout. At one point, when one of my dressers got slightly nicked, Conor himself pointed out the error and gave me a $20 discount (which was more than fair given how minor the scratch was). And when I was presented with my bill at the end, the move came out to about $200 LESS than we had agreed upon. I had a five-star experience and will definitely be returning to Gentle Giant for my next move!

Every detail of this move from scheduling through the actual move day was easy and stress-free! We moved everything out of two different storage spaces going to two different houses. No problem! Both of our movers, Conor Daly and David Buzzard, were so professional and helpful. Especially since part of this move included moving furniture back for my elderly parents -- both Conor and David were very understanding and helpful when some of the initial furniture placement didn't work and my parents kept trying to be "helpful" themselves :-) I highly recommend Gentle Giant and plan on using them again in the future.

The service was timely, flexible to our needs (they even added an additional stop to help us pick up a couch on a street that didn't have a loading dock), and responsible in how it handled our most sensitive and delicate items. I didn't expect to get nearly as many big pieces out of the door in one day!
