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.

Had the best moving experience today Milos and Eric from Gentle Giant! They arrived on time and were super efficient getting me out of my old place and into my new place. They made a typically stressful situation easy with their professional communication and helpful approach. They went above and beyond to make sure that everything went smoothly. I’d absolutely recommend for your next move!

I had such an excellent experience with Gentle Giant movers! I had packers and movers and every single member of the crew was professional, flexible in light of parking snafus, contentious of my items, and efficient. Every single item I own was packed and moved from point A to point B safely. I couldn't have had a better team and will definitely use them again in the future!

I contacted Gentle Giant for a quote on moving services and ended up receiving great advice on planning my move even if it wasn’t in their best interest. The team called in advance to confirm, arrived on time and extremely prepared to help in any way they could.Dex, Karai, and Erick helped pack up my apartment and were extremely patient, professional, and swift. As someone storing items, everything was itemized, logged, and wrapped up in a meticulous manner. The whole experience was worth every penny and would definitely hire again for help!

My team was responsive, efficient, and professional. They arrived early and worked through the snow to get my things to my destination. I was impressed with their teamwork and the careful way they transported my items. I was also impressed with the move coordinator's thoroughness prior to the move and her follow-up afterwards. I highly recommend!

The movers at Gentle Giant were incredibly helpful with a difficult move/junk removal due to building and street access issues. They were professional, fast, and courteous and took great care of my belongings. Dex, Dak, and Erick helped get my move to my new home off to a good start! Highly recommend.

I was dreading our move after having lived for 30 years in our house, but Gentle Giant's movers made it a positive experience. Milos, Ryan, Zach, Donny, Dex, Dakary and Nate were efficient, courteous, timely, and just plain nice. This was a 3-day process of packing, loading and unloading, and we could tell just how well-trained and skilled the crew was in each part of the process. Unpacking involved putting together a baby grand piano and two antique grandfather clocks, which went very smoothly. I was particularly grateful to Milos for suggesting an excellent way to arrange the two couches in an oddly-shaped family room! After the new house was unpacked, we went back to the old DC house to clean, and lo-and-behold, we had forgotten a number of things in the attic. Andre and another Giant came over within an hour and moved and stored the things for us until their next trip to Delaware. Sarah arranged that - truly all the Giants couldn't have been more accommodating! What true professionals and terrific people! If we ever move again, I will know who to call! Thank you so much!

Washington DC Moving Company Reviews

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.
