30 year-old award winning small business Gentle Giant Moving Company is an Admired Company. Within the professional service industry, Gentle Giant has stood out from their peers by positively influencing what is expected from a local moving company and has been recognized by the Boston Business Journal and the Wall Street Journal for being Innovation Partner of the Year in 2008 and a Top Small Workplace in 2007, respectively.
Gentle Giant has garnered admiration in the industry by implementing small but significant practices like hiring educated, athletic professionals to focus on customer service while on the trucks and continuously supporting Boston-community events like the Boston Marathon, Head of the Charles Regatta, and most recently, the Race Up Boston Place (which they won, gaining admiration from the American Lung Association). On top of this, Gentle Giant is always working on the next innovation to make moving greener and more efficient. Just a few months ago, they introduced their innovative Bike Moves program, which uses custom built bicycles to execute local Boston moves instead of diesel consuming trucks.
Gentle Giant is a small company with a solid reputation making a large impact in an industry not known for making an impact. This admiration has introduced Gentle Giant to an extended customer base, enabling the company to grow and hire in a down housing market. This growth allows them to continue innovating and becoming more involved in the communities they service.
