    I needed to move a 28 inch wide and 200 pound washer into my upstairs laundry room - accessible only by a 21.5 wide spiral staircase - with the flimsy metal railing extending across my loft in Fairlington - with the top of the railing about 14 feet from the living room floor.  First, all the appliance sources I tried refused to bring the washer upstairs, then a number of movers voiced the same refusal, then, feeling desperate and worried that my situation was impossible, I researched heavy item moves into loft and tiny spaces and found "hoisting" movers, including Gentle Giant Moving Company - out of Boston - and thought okay, that makes sense, Boston would have lots of old buildings where getting appliances around narrow passages would be more common.  Then, bonus, I found out the operation is also here in the DMV.  I initially spoke with Laurentiu who believed it was possible and scheduled Kieffer to come confirm his belief.  Kieffer put my mind mostly at ease as soon as he walked over to the spiral staircase and told me what the job would take, and that his crew could do it.  The crew was timely.  I was completely thrown when Andre, Milos and Ara stepped off the Gentle Giant truck, and there was also a car with Elmer and a women - who was great - but I don't recall her name.  Andre explained that the extra folks were training - so they just came along.  Andre was brilliant and Milos was masterful.  I am highly critical - at least honest about it - but I have nothing but compliments about every person in this crew - and having felt totally unlucky since discovering that I had this washer replacement issue - I feel very fortunate that this able crew arrived to assist.  The cost was reasonable:  It only took less than an hour, but there was a two hour minimum - but it was worth every penny - oh, along with being critical - I am cheap - but not when my money is well spent.  I am providing this much detail, because when I was reading reviews, I really wished that I had found someone else who had been in my situation - but I didn't until I happened to find something written from someone in Boston, and worked backwards.  If you need skilled, crafty professional movers, and have the money to pay for what you want or need, I would recommend Gentle Giant movers without hesitation or reservation.

    Far exceeded my expectations. In the end, lower cost than most estimates. And there name is true! The four men assigned to our move were all tall, strong, and gentle.

    Best movers ever! My boyfriend and I had a fantastic experience with Gentle Giant. We used them recently when we combined our two apartments (mine in DC, his in Virginia) to move in together. Honestly, it was the best experience I've ever had with a moving company. They arrived on time, wrapped all of our furniture thoroughly, and moved it all into our new place even more carefully and efficiently than either of us could have hoped. Considering that we had two full apartments to move, we were surprised at how quickly everything happened. All of our furniture arrived in perfect condition, and the price was exactly what we expected it to be, according to estimates. We also found their system and process for evaluating price at the outset to be both accurate and helpful. We'll definitely keep this friendly staff in mind again for our next move. Thanks guys!

    Gentle Giant and its stellar crew (Ian, Michael, Sergiu, Stefan, and Stratton) did an absolutely incredible job packing and transporting the contents of our apartment. The estimate was right on target - down to the dollar and the time of arrival. The crews arrived and moved efficiently and carefully to pack and load the truck under less-than-ideal circumstances (pouring rain). They were very professional and meticulous throughout the move. We really appreciated working with them and will definitely use them in the future.I also very rarely write Yelp reviews - so that should tell you just how pleased we were with our experience!

    We had a really great move with Gentle Giant.  Moving day can be stressful but they were so professional and helpful. They even set the beds back up for us.  Everything was made it undamaged and the price was far below the other two quotes that I got.  Nice crew all around.  Many thanks for the hard work!

    This company is great! Organized from the first moment you contact them, to the pre-move preparations, to the team that shows up and does the move. They have a great team, professional operations, and I recommend them to anyone. Of all the million things I had to juggle during this move, I was so grateful I found a company that made sure things went smoothly and everything went right.

    This is a very well-run company, and the crew is obviously well taken care of. We've used this company several times, once with an especially challenging situation where our new home wasn't ready yet. They worked with us and came up with a "Plan B" for our stuff. So appreciated during such a stressful time. I've recommended GG to family in other cities, with the same great efficiency.

    I cannot say enough good things about the company and the crew that handled my move. They were efficient, careful, accommodating, and made the entire experience as stress-free as possible. The crew was so helpful and patient in moving things around once the furniture was unloaded. Really, I highly recommend Gentle Giant. They're top-notch.

    These guys were incredibly helpful, friendly and professional. They ran our move from Alexandria to Baltimore and it went more smoothly than we could ever imagine. They even unloaded my U-Pack Crate. Thanks guys!

    Wonderful experience! I moved from a 1 bedroom to another 1 bedroom and the movers were FRIENDLY, EFFICIENT, and PROFESSIONAL. They didn't waste any time and they had the move well planned out. Even the box delivery person was friendly and professional. The customer service was on top of their game in corresponding with me. I highly recommend Gentle Giant. I will be using them again if I move again.
