2005 Best Movers

Gentle Giant

Broken mirrors. Dented dressers. Cracked china. Sometimes movers actually add to the hassle of moving. Luckily for us, there’s Gentle Giant. This team of former soccer and rugby players, marathoners, and rowers makes handling heavy furniture look easy. They use extra care and swaddle delicate items in padded blankets before speedily maneuvering even awkward pieces up and down banks of stairs and into their waiting truck.
