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.

This was my third move with Gentle Giant, and once again, they did not disappoint. Andre, Buenaventura, and Amal provided excellent customer service and a fast, efficient move. They took really good care of my things and were courteous and friendly. They’re also experienced and overall outstanding at what they do. They and the rest of the Gentle Giant team took so much of the stress out of moving. I can’t imagine ever choosing a different company for moving services. I highly recommend Gentle Giant.

Milos and his crew did a great job of moving us, even with some challenging pieces of furniture and doorways. They worked quickly and carefully, and were very friendly. The people in the office were responsive and helpful, and made this a smooth process from beginning to end. The price was fair, and there were no surprise charges at the end. Highly recommended!

We had Zachary and Andre help us for our move and when I say they were phenomenal, that is not an understatement! Professional, friendly, and SO hardworking. We have a couch that can't be taken apart and our new place has a very tight entryway. About a half hour into trying to find a way to get the couch into the building (in the rain I might add), we decided to tell them to just forget about the couch, its not worth it. Not only did they continue trying to figure out how to get it in, they DID IT!!! Excellent troubleshooters and such amazing work ethic, highly recommend for anyone who wants an easy and quick move!!

Very responsive, someone called me as soon as I submitted the quote request online. The movers were quick and efficient. It ended up being almost the same as the quote, actually slightly cheaper. I would recommend them.

We found Gentle Giant to be ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIC!!They took Great Care with everything — and we had No Problems at all !!After a few minutes of their being on the job, our moving Stress Levels went way down !!! While they may cost a little more — when you subtract out BENEFITS for Stress Reduction, they are probably far less expensive than competitors !!!!!

Zack, Dex, and Erik were all exceptional moving day professionals for my move using Gentle Giant from Washington, D.C. to Baltimore, MD. This was my third move with Gentle Giant in the last five years and it went just as smoothly and seamlessly as the last two. My possessions were handled with care and good humor, and the team easily addressed and overcame the minor obstacles we encountered during the move, particularly on the Baltimore end. In particular, I appreciated the team's creative solution to unloading my items from the truck in Baltimore while avoiding parked vehicles and their partially disassembling my dining room table so that it would fit into the door of my new home. Their prices are also very reasonable and competitive with other local and national companies. The administrative professionals, Andrew and Dominque, ensured that my initial scheduling of my moving services and the day-before check-in were handled promptly and accurately. I would highly recommend considering Gentle Giant for your next Baltimore-Washington area move!

Milos and Nick helped us move from DC to Baltimore! They were nothing but professional, polite, and FAST! From a family who has had their fair share of terrible moving experiences, they made everything SO AMAZING and efficient! Thank you!!

Just a great experience moving our house from DC to MD with Gentle Giant. They packed the house up on one day, and moved it all the next. The crew - Dex Veney and crew Andrei Talasman, Leonard Cunningham, Brian Ivey, and Dakarai Veney - were all masked up, cheerful, and worked really hard on both days! They took apart furniture and put it back together right where we wanted it in the new house, and worked late to make it all happen on moving day.Nothing was damaged during the whole move, and we moved a big house that needed two trucks!The quote came in really really close to the final cost, and the estimator even gave us suggestions on how we could same some money during the move by highlighting specific things that take movers more time, but we could do ourselves relatively easily. We were definitely grateful to be able to save some of the cost!I would wholeheartedly recommend them to others looking to move in the future.

Dex, Elmer, and Brian did a great job. Moved fast without breaks or bumps. Courteous, professional, well spoken, and dressed in clean, uniformed and comfortable outfits.We wrapped early and saved some money by coming in under estimate [pro tip: save money by having boxes packed, stacked, and ready to go. fewer odds and ends hanging around, less trips].

My move was a total breeze with Gentle giants moving company. My crew was on time, very courteous, efficient, and swift. They took her good care of my furniture - wrapped them very well and handled them with care. I will use them again and again. My final bill was within the initial estimate they provided so there were no surprises. I highly recommend Gentle giants for all your moving needs.

Gentle Giant was the first movers I had ever used, and I will be sure to use them in any future moves that we have. Dex, Amall and Octavian were quick, professional, and helpful in our Arlington to DC move. When cars were parked in our reserved space in front of our new home, they were quick to assess the problem and made it work. The team finished ahead of schedule and made this move a breeze. Make sure to use this group with any move that you have!

Milos, Zach and Jamal moved me last week and they were great. I thought it was going to be from back door to back door but they had to go from front door to front door and that made it a bit more complicated. The wrinkle did not phase them and they worked very efficiently and took great care with my things. I would recommend them to anyone! Thanks!
