Boston, 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, Virginia, Washington DC, Seattle, and San Francisco, today announced that 2011's revenue from its Interstate business line exceeded $7 million for the first time since the company began offering a full line of Interstate Relocation services in 2004. Gentle Giant also reached a milestone by logging two $1 million months in July and August, an extremely impressive accomplishment for a moving company of Gentle Giant's size.
This surge from Gentle Giant's Interstate Moving Division is consistent with their increasing annual revenue over the past few years, which has risen 22% since 2008. Furthermore, Interstate's revenue has gone from accounting for 20% of the company's total revenue in 2008 to about 24% in 2011.
Gentle Giant's Interstate Division, headed by Director Tom Anderson and Sales Manager Carline Lorentzen, attribute this consistent increase to several factors that separate Gentle Giant's Interstate from other long distance moving companies, including using Gentle Giant's Regional Offices across the country to help with interstate moves.
"By completing a customer's move with only highly trained and professional Gentle Giant movers, we ensure consistent quality service from coast to coast and everywhere in between," explains Lorentzen. "We are dedicated to extensive driver training, which means that all of our interstate move teams are running on maximum efficiency while flawlessly representing the fun, hardworking, and fast paced Gentle Giant company culture."
The 32-year-old moving company's increased efforts are paying off as glowing reviews of the service continue to pour in. "The mission of Gentle Giant is to change what people expect from a moving company by creating a positive experience through great service," said Larry O'Toole, president and CEO of Gentle Giant. "We invest in our employees, and I am grateful that our customers are responding positively to their tremendous effort."
While Gentle Giant greatly values the awards and accolades it has received from local and national business communities, its greatest honor is the feedback from its many satisfied interstate customers. Below are some direct quotes from these interstate customers:
"Despite challenging logistics with the location of our new home [in Charlotte, NC], the unload was accomplished with the same efficiency and professionalism that we experienced in Rhode Island."
- Mary & Ron M.
"The employees that worked on my move are truly professional and excellent at their work. They showed they cared and made my move much less stressful then it could have been otherwise."
- Eileen C.
