SOMERVILLE, MA - Gentle Giant Moving Company, the premier residential moving and storage company in Massachusetts with locations in New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Washington, DC and Washington state, has been awarded the prestigious 2008 Angie's List® Super Service Award.
The Super Service Award, now celebrating its 10th year, is given to companies who have achieved and maintained a superior service rating on Angie's List throughout the past year. Fewer than 5 percent of the companies on Angie's List meet the eligibility requirements to be considered for the award.
"Our Super Service Award winners are the cream of the crop when it comes to customer service," said Angie Hicks, founder of Angie's List.
This is the seventh year that Gentle Giant Moving Company has been recognized by Angie's List for providing superior customer experience. The company states that its operations and customer service functions are geared toward creating referrals and repeat customers, which are the source of 80% of its business. As a result the company has expanded to seven states and opened its first West Coast location in Seattle last year.
"Our most valued achievement is the feedback of the many satisfied customers," said Gentle Giant CEO Larry O'Toole. "This award supports our belief that if you invest in your employees, set high expectations, and reward them for treating people well, your customers will receive the best care, and they will share their experience with others," said O'Toole. The company has made comments from several of its customers available on its web site (http://www.gentlegiant.com/custfeedback.php).
Angie's List Super Service Award winners have maintained an "A" rating overall; have received a minimum number of reports; are not in the Angie's List "Penalty Box;" and do not have an unsatisfactory rating with the Better Business Bureau.
Service company ratings are updated daily on Angie's List. Members can find the 2008 Super Service Award logo next to company names in search results on AngiesList.com.
