    We ended up using this  moving company after Zach contacted me to resolve our prior issues.  The company was fantastic - the helpers were super fast, super strong and careful.  They moved all of our stuff within an hour or 2 (and some boxes my husband and I could barely move without a struggle) and this is going up and down 2 big flights of stairs.  Then we moved about 6+ hours away and they unpacked the delivery truck the same day.  Each box was set in the correct room for us to unpack.  They must have had a tough day - but they did exactly what we wanted and nothing was broken!  Thank you for making out move as easy as possible with a 3 month old :-D

    Great experience- GG provided an accurate estimate for my move, and the team was great! Shout out to Angel, Bjorn and Omari who went the extra mile and were careful, friendly and accommodating. They made the move go as smoothly as possible.

    Crew showed up on time, worked quickly and carefully.  They wrapped every piece of furniture with moving blankets and handled things as if they were their own.  They were very friendly and hard working.  Would definitely recommend them and will absolutely use them again!

    I used Gentle Giant sometime ago when they were in Tarrytown NY, and the movers were so quick and so efficient, it was unlike any moving experience I've ever had. My move was local from one side of Harlem to another but I couldn't believe how smooth, how easy, how quick the process was to move my items from one location to another. Antonio was extremely helpful whether it was boxing, wrapping, sorting, packing, you name it he was on it and was not afraid to get dirty. Thanks again Gentle Giant, I will definitely be using you in the future.

    Daniel Kaner and Evan Callahan moved me into my new apt in NYC on March 2, and they were amazing.  It was the most seamless move I have ever had and I always use Gentle Giant, and always have had a great experience!  They were on time, actually a little early which is always a good thing!  They were so sweet, and smart.  They put everything together for me, and made sure things were centered, for example my entertainment center, etc.  They were so efficient and quick.  I have a 1 bedroom and they were done within 2 hours.  They took the wardrobe boxes for me, as they brought them up first so I could hang my clothes etc. and they got rid of them for me, as well as other packing paper and boxes.  They were AMAZING!!!!  Best move ever.  These men are professionals!!!!  They were the best, and I want to thank them again.  You guys were great, and made my move, low stress.  Thank you so much!!!Warm regards,Suzie Wise

    I found Gentle Giant Movers while searching for another moving company. From the beginning the service was helpful and attentive and I was able to setup a move quickly. On the move date, Daniel & Angel called when on their way, arrived early, packed in record time, and completed the process by getting all of my Moms stuff into her apartment in well under the estimated time. They were great. I would definitely recommend Gentle Giant Movers to anyone looking for a top notch operation.

    Gentle Giant movers lived up to the word of mouth positive feedback I had heard and I am very happy I chose them recently for my Manhattan to Stamford move.Their estimate came in at the high end of the three companies I got estimates for. However I decided to go with them as I made a bet they would be the less stressful and smoother move experience. IT WAS TOTALLY SPOT ONFirstly - excellent communication. From the sales personnel, who replied to my emails and phone calls promptly and precisely, to the head of the moving crew on the day of - Tony - I felt like they knew every quirk and detail of my move. Secondly, smooth move as efficiently as possible. I'm used to moving, local and international, and I know the pitfalls of what can go wrong and try to minimize those. Thirdly, conservative/accurate estimating. Nearly all the nightmare stories about movers have to do with the unexpected 'additional' costs that make an actual price on the day of moving balloon from the estimate. I grilled them on what additional costs I might incur, and once I factored that in, I was well within my ballpark in the final price when I completed the move. Gentle Giant don't advertise and are under the radar. I happened to hear about them from a family member, and by chance got a hold of their business card in my lobby bulletin board in Manhattan. In spite of their minimal advertising, minimal Yelp presence, and higher than others estimates and pricing, I would highly recommend taking a look at Gentle Giant in your area as an option if you're as particular about your movers as I am.

    I have used this company for several small moves but just did for a rather complicated one that involved interstate move, move to storage, donations and fragile items packing and moving. My experience was excellent and the N Y crew was exceptional in keeping all straight and organized as well. They were also able to coordinate a very specific delivery date request.  They were fast on both ends and waste no time.  Will definitely use this company in th future.

    I cannot recommend GG highly enough.  They packed up my 3 bedroom apartment, including some art that needed to be crated, moved me from NYC to California and unpacked me on the other side.  They were incredibly professional, organized, efficient and careful with all of my belongings.  They made what could have been an enormously stressful experience a breeze and a pleasure.  I highly recommend their packing and unpacking service - it was worth every penny.  There is no question that the next time I move I will call GG, and I recommend them without reservation to anyone in need of a world class moving company.

    I was incredibly impressed with the three gentlemen who came to help me move. I knew I would need help packing, so engaged them for two days, to pack and then to move my stuff to storage. They were on time, responsive, attentive. They packed my things carefully and were attentive when I was worried about something. I am in Brooklyn, and they were not fazed at all by parking problems, concerns by the super, stairs or anything. As I sorted through stuff, and realized I had a lot of junk, they helped me to dispose of it, thus saving on storage costs. They were extremely professional and helpful, and a pleasure to work with.
