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.

Hiring Gentle Giant was an absolutely amazing experience from beginning to end. In requesting a quote the representatives were quick to respond and they didn’t try to charge an insane amount like other companies to move from DC to Arlington where other’s consider it to be a “long distance move” because it’s a different state. Ian and Nate were wonderful, they arrived early and communicated and made sure I was in the loop on everything. They got me moved very quickly, efficiently and with care. I’m a planner, so boxes and most things were ready to go when they arrived so the entire process of loading and unloading flew by. I was so impressed, as they were loading I texted a friend who is also moving soon and told them how great Gentle Giant is.

Can't say enough good things about Gentle Giant, and, in particular, the Veney brothers - Dex, Dak, and Donny. We hired them to help us pack up our 2BR apartment and move everything into storage. These guys went way above and beyond, and exceeded our expectations in every way. They were consummate professionals, highly efficient, and very careful with our belongings. Can't recommend them highly enough.

We are having extensive renovations done to our home's second floor. Due to a misunderstanding with the general contractor, I needed all of the furniture removed as soon as possible. I had used Gentle Giants before for our last move and also knew them from the great volunteer work they do in our community. They called me back immediately after I reached out and set up a date for three days away. Perfect! The team contacted me before arriving and was on-time, professional and pleasant. They did a great job and double-checked w/ me periodically to ensure they were getting the job done. I was in the military for ten years and went through many, many moves. I would also add the price was totally fair and reasonable for the high quality of the service. Gentle Giant is the best in the industry. Special thanks to the team yesterday of Dex (lead), Ryan, Zach & Alex.

The movers from Gentle Giant were efficient, professional, and extremely careful with all my furniture. They handled a two-part move without a single problem, working quickly as a team, and treating each of my items with care. I would strongly recommend them!

These guys were incredible. They had to pull a 9ft sofa up three flights to bring it in through my balcony because it wouldn’t fit up my stairs and they did it without leaving a single mark. They were so upbeat and friendly and fast. They will absolutely be my go to moving company for now on.

My crew was the fastest move I've ever had! This was not at the expense of quality either. Not a scratch, ding or anything missing. But my FAVORITE aspect of Gentle Giant was, everyone I worked with from quote, reception, and move crew, were beyond friendly and so kind. I actually look forward to my next move because I wont have to spend so much time researching a move company. They will be my go-to for all my future moves! Thanks Guys!

Great, friendly and professional crew. Showed up on time, did their job with a lot of care and pretty fast. Even disassembled and put back together a big IKEA bunk bed that I was pretty sure was going to be a problem. I was very impressed!I would def recommend and if I ever move again I will def use them again!

Responsive, reasonable price, courteous, efficient, cautious - in 48 hours, Gentle Giant had a team here to move a piano and it was flawlessly executed. We will certainly use them again in the future!

Gentle Giant helped us move from DC to Annapolis. We wanted to get as much moved in one go as we could, so we prepped tons of boxes and furniture for them. Dex, Dakari and Erick came in, got the lay of the land, and started working. Hard. They loaded that truck non-stop, with great efficiency, yet with great care. Everything was handled with respect. Many items were additionally taped or wrapped for protection. Large or bulky items sometimes caused a brief conversation about strategy, but it all went into the truck. Even the 600 pound barber chair. At the other end, the same process unfolded in reverse. Everything went into the house where we specified. A few items were even moved a second time as we made last minute decisions about placement. Everything was placed carefully and unwrapped. Even when they didn't know we could hear them, they would discuss moving methods amongst themselves, and remind each other to take care with the items. When the truck was empty, they had worked a full eight hour day, non-stop except for lunch. There was no idling, no chit-chat, not even slow walking. We were extremely impressed with their dedication. I would absolutely recommend this group to my friends for moving services.

The office did a decent job of arranging the move. I filled a catalogue of items to be moved and I was initially sticker shocked by the estimate. I negotiated down a bit, but I had underestimated the amount of items we had and the level of care/caution they would use. When they got to the apartment, it took some time to get the truck situated bc of a Postal Worker who hates his life. They immediately got to work very carefully wrapping and stacking and disassembling furniture. To say they were thorough and cautious is an understatement. I had some furniture items from Crate and Barrel and had provided the user guide to make it easy, but the bed took > 1 hour. Again, very thorough. They at this point called for backup w/ 2 more guys - also increasing the price. The team were the most courteous, professional, and kind group of moving guys I’ve ever met or imagined. Once fully wrapped and packed out (>4 hours), the move in to our new place 5 long blocks away was a breeze. I appreciate everything the crew did, how they did it, etc. We bought them pizza and beverages on top of handsome tips to thank them. I will say the moving team was wonderful. The total price including tip of > $2,000 to move 5 long blocks still feels very very expensive. All the accolades to the movers. To the company...work on value.

Andre Eilers & Zachary Cason went above and beyond to make sure that my move went smoothly. They were on time, worked extraordinarily hard and did a terrific job. I needed assistance moving furniture items into a rented U-Haul truck and they did the best job packing my wife and I have ever seen. Everything was wrapped and packed with so much thought and care. We were able to complete the move with no damage to any items and everything was easily removed by non professionals on the other end of the move. Couldn’t be happier and have already recommended the services to others.

Kenese, Elmer, and Ishmael were fantastic! They were all super nice, worked efficiently, asked questions when needed, took great care of some really old sentimental pieces, and made the stressful experience of moving much better. Each of them deserves a big round of thanks and a raise for the stellar work they do for your company.

The moving team was super organized with multiple check-ins prior to the move, which was very helpful. Although the team leader v
changed from day 1 to day 2, it was seamless. The moving team was friendly and helpful no matter what curve ball was presented to them.
