DC Regional Manager
Gentle Giant DC's Regional Manager, Matt Packebusch, is the type of Giant you want to have on a long, challenging day. Since joining the company in 2006, Matt has consistently demonstrated extraordinary strength and skill, as well as a sense of humor that instantly lightens the mood and creates an atmosphere of fun for both the crew and customer.

Matt was once tasked with moving a nine-foot, 1,200-pound Grand Piano up two flights of stairs on a Friday, then back down the following Monday. Despite the challenge, he considers this one of the best days on the job he’s ever had. In addition to the bond it created with the crew, he said the look of amazement and gratitude from the customer was like none other.

Outside of moving, Matt enjoys Crossfit, practicing karate and playing rugby.

Washington DC Moving Company Reviews

WASHINGTON, DC Move

In the rush of buying a house while pregnant, I didn’t have a chance to carefully research moving companies. Gentle Giant had come to Porker Street (our block party) a few years ago and seemed nice so I just went with y’all.

The quote was what we expected – but then I heard from a friend that his move (with another company) had ended up costing him twice what the company had quoted. I was worried we would have the same experience.

Kieffer came to do a quote and gave us advice on how we could save money by saving the team time (moving fragile things ourselves for example). When asked about eco friendly options, he said we could have used boxes delivered to save money as well.

When Andre (Aussie Andre, not Romanian Andre – I think he’s Aussie anyway) dropped off the boxes we requested, he said he was worried about how narrow the street was. When we brought this up to Kieffer over email, they decided to send just a van for packing day. Kieffer and Domonique were communicative and clear over email leading up to the move.

On packing day, Octavian and Nate were friendly and professional – thinking of everything so I didn’t have to. They were efficient and finished earlier than I expected. They communicated clearly each step of the way and were patient while I made decisions or dealt with unexpected situations. Octavian was worried about how narrow Parker Street is so he called in and ordered a smaller truck to avoid headaches the following day.

On moving day, they were joined by Andre (Romanian Andre). Andre was also great – together they efficiently packed up the rest of the house and loaded up the truck. They worked through lunch so they could finish earlier, meaning I was in my new house with all my stuff earlier than expected. And the final bill was less than my original quote and very reasonable for the amazing job that Gentle Giant did each step of the way. I would absolutely recommend Gentle Giant to a friend.

I’m sure I’m butchering the spelling of their names, but we were very satisfied with Canessay, Eustis and Elmer. Elmer showed excellent leadership skills-directing the other two guys in a professional and kind manner. He, especially, even greeted others in our building. The guys worked very quickly-I feel as if they used our time efficiently…we pay by time, after all. Appreciated how they all had company shirts-they even stayed tucked in…a minor detail but a sharp looking one. The guys set up our stuff where we wanted it-saved us a good deal of time. They were just generally friendly as well. Positive guys. Office staff was very present and professional during conversations. They had me at hello.

Getting the quote and booking a moving date was very efficient and easy, which is exactly what I needed. I was fortunate enough to work with Milos, Octavian, and Andre for my move. They were all hardworking, kind, and considerate with my move. They were very attentive to my needs, making sure they knew if anything was delicate or fragile. The move was very efficient and I can’t stop saying positive things about it.

10/10 would absolutely recommend to a friend.

Thanks!

The three guys who took care of me were efficient, careful and unfailingly courteous. I would work with them in a heart beat. Nice to see three brothers working so hard to deliver in such a top notch way. Best of luck to their family franchise and Gentle Giants overall!
