Brooklyn, NY - Gentle Giant Moving Company, an award winning local and long distance moving company, announced today that it has opened a third New York office in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn. The Red Hook location is an addition to the company's Long Island City warehouse space that opened last year and the Tarrytown location in Westchester County which has been in operation since 2006.
The company cites the benefits of the Red Hook warehouse including a vastly improved 6,000 sq. ft. storage facility and strategic location for the growing New York branch. In addition to the expansion of its New York moving company, Gentle Giant is announcing Red Hook's opening as part of a number of growth initiatives in 2013, its 33rd year of operation, in which it now operates offices in nine states including Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Virginia, Washington DC, Maryland, North Carolina, Washington, and California.
Gentle Giant's need for additional warehouse space in New York has become more pressing due to a steady increase in shipments, manpower required, and storage space demands since beginning operations in New York seven years ago. In 2012, local moving revenues for the company's New York regional operations grew 81% compared to 2010. Additionally, Gentle Giant conducted 370 moves in New York compared to 2010's 265 moves.
"We are pleased about our Red Hook location opening because it offers opportunities for our great employees to impress new customers and provide them with even more services in the Brooklyn community," said Gentle Giant President and CEO Larry O'Toole. "Our company is constantly seeking ways to enhance our impact on our customers' and employees' lives, and our new facilities will enable us to continue growing."
Within the Five Boroughs and Westchester County, Gentle Giant guarantees their service 100%, which include local moving, long distance moving, international moving, commercial moving, storage, and packing. For more information, visit .
