How the Moving Process Works

Gentle Giant Moving & StorageTM

Throughout our over 40 years in business, Gentle Giant Moving Company has developed a finely tuned process for expertly tackling moves small and large, local or long distance, with any level of complexity. Our combination of training, moving services, technology, and professional employees creates a pleasant, stress-free moving experience. Here’s how it works:

Step 1 – First Contact:

When you decide to reach out to Gentle Giant, you will speak live to a highly trained sales person who has knowledge about the entire moving process. They will give you a straightforward, accurate estimate. Not only are many of our sales employees former Gentle Giant movers, but the average tenure of our sales staff is five years – you will not find this level of commitment at any other moving company.

Step 2 – Technology:

Of course, Gentle Giant takes full advantage of available technology to make your pre-move process efficient and accurate. Our customer inventory system and moving cost estimation tools are top notch, enabling us to focus on your personalized moving needs. Our technology allows us to make sure we respond to every inquiry quickly, whether from online requests, calls, or emails. It’s one of the ways we are able to do over 12,000 moves annually.

Step 3 – Before Your Move:

At Gentle Giant, we have a special team of employees called move coordinators who are 100% dedicated to the careful planning of your move. No matter how complex or simple your move may seem, we will help you prepare by offering free delivery of packing materials, including boxes, advice on packing and streamlining your inventory, and we’ll explain every step so you know exactly what to expect. You will have your move coordinator’s direct phone number and email address, and we promise to call you in the days preceding your move for any last questions.

Step 4 – Moving Day:

On your moving day, you will be greeted by on-time, friendly, professional movers ready to work. Led by an experienced crew chief, our movers are carefully screened and given the knowledge and tools to get the job done right – and fast. They have a reputation for literally running on the job (when safe to do so) – you will never see a Giant taking a smoke break or sitting down on the job. They will work as long as it takes to get the move done, even if unexpected challenges arise during the day. Large, awkward pieces, narrow stairs, bad weather, or broken elevators are all part of what you hire us to handle, so you don’t have to worry!

Step 5 – After The Move:

Even after the bill is signed and your crew has departed your new home, you are never on your own when it comes to questions you may have or extra help you may need. Call Gentle Giant’s quality control team directly if you have any concerns about your move, or call your move coordinator to arrange for additional services, such as packing and unpacking. Most importantly, we want to know how everything went!
