Editorial review from Citysearch 2/22/2014

GG is careless about neighbors' safety. A couple of weeks ago, in early Feb 2014, a neighbor had them moving some stuff out, so GG's driver parked his truck (24' box) in front of the only fire hydrant in the neighborhood. We're nervous, because there's an arsonist at work in this neighborhood. But, when I called GG to ask them to move the truck, nothing happened. The movers just finished their job. Total time blocking the hydrant: 60 minutes. As in Wendy C's case, GG didn't bother to get a parking permit for the truck ahead of time, as they should have done. \r Ironically, GG is headquartered here in Somerville, MA, and claims to be neighborhood-friendly. Well, not so much, actually. more

SIMPLY THE BEST!! 2/16/2010

We have used Gentle Giant three times now and we just cannot say enough about them and the experience we have. Our latest move involved moving across country. There were cheaper movers out there but there are too many horror stories out there to take a chance on a company you do not know. We had peace of mind by going with Gentle Giant and it was worth every penny! They are truly the best in the business - they make the experience a stress free one. The crew is amazing - fast, careful, and very professional. Pros: professional, careful with items, crew works fast Cons: more expensive, but worth every dollar more

Excellent! 11/16/2009

The two movers Gentle Giant sent us were excellent. They were careful with our furniture and walls, worked hard, and were polite and professional. Their service was all that one would expect?which, frankly, is getting rarer and rarer these days. Keep up the good work, Gentle Giant! Pros: Careful, hard working, professional Cons: Not inexpensive, but you get what you pay for more

OUTSTANDING !! 1/17/2009

We came upon Gentle Giant after much research on moving companies and obtaining several quotes from several different moving companies. Decided to go with Gentle Giant as their record shows they do an outstandng job and the many satisfied customers. After hearing many horror stories from friends with their past moving experiences and customer complaints on the web regarding ripoffs and not satisfied with their move, we decided to go with Gentle Giant. They are not the least expensive, but were well worth it. The move was an interstate move. Gentle Giant was on time, courteous, treated every detail of the move with much respect. Rik, Aurimus and Tomas, all three exceptional gentlemen. Great personable guys! Can not say enough about these three gentlemen. They made the moving experience smooth as can be, more

Great great great 9/14/2008

We were very impressed by the service and overall quality of our cross-country move with Gentle Giant. It was the first time we've had packers and the first time we've been moved so far by a moving company. All the details were handled well and I trusted them throughout. more

Bad experience - feel scammed 7/27/2005

After 2 really great moves with Gentle Giant this past one this month was really disappointing! The move took double the estimated time. It took them almost 12 hours to move the contents of a 2 bedroom apartment 5 blocks. Even though we rented a crane for the second half of the move it took them just as long moving in as it did getting the stuff out of are old apt. When I contacted the company after the move there was no accommodation made. In fact, though I sent them the price for an expensive bottle of wine broken in the move they only reimbursed $90 of the $169 it cost. Despite good experiences in the past, I would never use them again. For the price they charge you expect the best - fast and efficient - we way overpaid for what we got. Pros: friendly Cons: expensive more
