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.

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.

I had a great experience with Gentle Giant. The movers (Erick, Zach and Ryan) were extremely professional, fast, courteous, and took great care of my belongings. While I hope to never move again :) if I do I will not hesitate to use GG again.

Our experience with Gentle Giant was a great one from start to finish. From the initial estimate to working with our move coordinator, Dominique, to the crew of Dex, Erik and Ish, we highly recommend Gentle Giant. The level of coordination, clarity, responsiveness and efficiency was highly appreciated and not taken for granted. We really appreciated Dex, Erick and Ish's professionalism and calm demeanors. They made great time in driving from DC to Charlottesville after loading the truck in DC and took care and time unloading our possessions. We highly recommend the Gentle Giant experience!

Gentle Giants are seriously the best moving company we’ve ever used. They were thorough, professional, efficient, safe, and lovey people to work with. We’ve worked with some pretty bad moving companies and we will always use Gentle Giants for our future moves. I can’t recommend them enough!

We had an excellent experience with Gentle Giant DC! Our entire crew was courteous, professional, and extremely efficient. We used them for a full service pack and long distance move and are so glad that we did. I was hesitant to hire a packing service but they packed everything with such care, and were so considerate of our family (leaving curtains in our daughters room up since we were sleeping there, giving us medicines to keep close rather than packing, etc.) it was apparent they were experienced. We also really liked that some of the crew who packed and loaded the truck also unloaded our belongings as well. It made for a seamless move and we are so grateful that we chose Gentle Giant!

Best moving experience I’ve ever had! The movers were professional, courteous, and thoughtful. In my experience with other movers, there was always at least one thing that went wrong. However this move was super efficient and hassle-free. The crew took direction extremely well. They were extra careful with fragile and expensive items, and were very cautious not to scratch the hardwood floors or the walls of our new house with the furniture and boxes. When we mentioned that we might be rearranging the room and moving the couch in a few weeks, they left the felt pads on the legs of the couch so that we would have easier time moving it ourselves. Their experience and training really showed. Highly recommended!

Andre and Ishmael were incredible! The move conditions were atrocious, it was raining, rush hour traffic, and the loading situation at my drop off was less than ideal. But through it all Andre and Ishmael did a wonderful job, they were able to take apart and put back together my furniture as if they had the manuals on hand, and took down big pieces of furniture at an incredible pace for just two guys. They weaved big couches and dressers in and out of tight corners without a scratch on anything. Would highly recommend this moving company and those movers in particular for a stellar job!

WASHINGTON, DC Move

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.
