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.

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!

The best movers we have ever encountered, from initial contact through move day. We used Gentle Giant for a local move for large furniture and books. Milos, Andre, and Brian were the most professional moving crew we have ever had (combined 18 lifetime moves with my wife). They were respectful of our property, responsive to changing decisions for large furniture, and expeditious. I 100% recommend Gentle Giant for any move and we will be using them again. Thank you!

We’ve used Gentle Giant since 2004, moving from Va. Beach to Boston and back again. And now once again as we downsize from our DC home to a smaller place in the District. Also, this past weekend Gentle Giant took a truckload of our furnishings to our son in Virginia Beach. All splendidly done. They are exactly what they say, gentle with all your household contents that you care about and giants in the industry as far as we are concerned. Best and only way to move.

Would recommend Gentle Giant Movers to those moving in DC. Scheduling was easy and movers arrived on time. Ian S. and Donny V. were both very nice, professional, and showed care with my belonging. They went above and beyond to make sure items (especially the heavier ones) were placed where I wanted them in my new home. Only complaint is that my final price came in almost 30% higher than the quote, but still thought it to be comparable for DC standards. Will use them again for my next move.

Highly recommend Gentle Giant. One of of the best moving experiences of my life. Our initial quote was very fair and there was full transparency around packing costs that could be applied (e.g. tape, paper wrapping ,etc. by crew during move). Our all-in final cost was only $86 more than the initial quote. Very pleased with this. The movers arrived on time, moved at a quick pace, wrapped all items carefully, and were very gentle with setting items down. Additionally, our movers were polite and professional. Again, highly recommend.

Dex and Dakarai did a great job moving our office. They were diligent and so easy to work with. It was also very easy coordinating the move with Dominique and Kieffer. The entire team made the moving experience painless and easy. I will definitely work with Gentle Giant Moving Company in the future and recommend them to anyone looking to move.

Gentle Giant Moving Company was the best part of my move. They were professional, courteous, and very efficient. They were very responsive from the beginning, showed up on time, got right to work, and finished in under the time estimated. I cannot recommend enough!

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.
