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.

DC Regional Manager
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.

Gentle Giant Moving Company was hands down the best experience we have ever had with a moving company. The team of movers who showed up on moving day were polite, friendly and always had smiles on their faces, even when lifting very heavy furniture. They took great care to wrap and protect all of our belongings. The entire team was exceptional. Dex Veney, the lead packer/mover was particularly helpful that day in efficiently packing up our entire kitchen while answering questions from the crew and helping to facilitate loading of boxes and furniture onto the moving truck. Would definitely use Gentle Giant again for any future moves!!!

We were thoroughly impressed with the Gentle Giant movers! Conor and Erick were our movers and both were exceptionally awesome, especially Conor who was our “go to” person and was very professional and personable. Whenever we’d need to move again, we will use Gentle Giant and ask for Conor and Erick.

We hired Gentle Giant to hoist some furniture through our window after we learned upon delivery that it would not fit up our narrow DC rowhouse stairs. They were quick to respond with a very reasonable quote and sent an incredibly efficient & hardworking team to do the job. We were so impressed by these guys. First of all, they managed to get a piece up the stairs in like one minute that the original delivery team swore would never fit after their own attempts. They also took apart a sleeper sofa to get most of it up the stairs, and when they confirmed that the main piece wouldn't make it, they pushed it up through a second story window (without even using any ropes or anything to do an actual hoisting). We are very glad we went with Gentle Giant for this one and highly recommend them.

Gentle Giants’ team did a fabulous job packing and moving our belongings. Not a single item was lost or damaged. I highly recommend them! The team lead, Javier, has 20 years moving experience and it showed in everything he did with china, crystal, antique furniture, etc.

I had such a smooth and amazing move!! Taner and Dakarai were super efficient and took care of everything, from disassembling and reassembling the bed and couch to making sure everything was exactly in the place I wanted it. I highly recommend if you’re looking for movers who care!!!

We hired Gentle Giant to pack, move and help unpack our things. The crew of Dex, Taner, Erick, Kyle and Dave has been absolutely amazing! They were punctual, very kind, patient, careful (no damage to our things or our new house), hard working and efficient at the job! We will definitely seek to hire them again for our next move

I have used Gentle Giant previously and they continue to knock it out of the park. The movers were prompt, efficient, helpful, and provided great communication. Would 100% recommend and I will def use them for any future moves.
