Award Winning Moving Company Relocates Local Branch to Improved Facilities in New Location



7/19/2010

Seattle, Wash. - Moving and Storage Company Gentle Giant Moving Company, an award winning local and long distance mover, announced today that it has opened a new branch location and warehouse storage facility in Seattle, Wash.  The storage warehouse and office space will serve as the company's local base of operation now that it has moved out of a previous Seattle moving and facility.  The new warehouse storage will enable Gentle Giant to offer full service professional storage to more customers throughout the region. The company has operated in Seattle since 2008 and was founded in Boston, Mass. in 1980.

Gentle Giant holds a multi-year lease in the Seattle storage facilities, which include approximately 5,000 square feet of space that will be used to house customers' belongings.  The company will also dispatch about 12 crew members and four vehicles of its nationwide fleet from the new location.  The Seattle branch is one of seventeen Gentle Giant Moving Company locations nationwide.  The branch allows Gentle Giant to provide local moving service as well as interstate moving for individuals and families moving coast-to-coast. 

"We are pleased about our new Seattle storage facilities and branch location because it offers opportunities for our great employees to serve new customers and interact with a whole new community," said Gentle Giant President and CEO Larry O'Toole.  "Our company constantly seeks ways to enhance our impact on our customers' and employees' lives, and our new facilities will enable us to do that."

Gentle Giant's Seattle moving and storage location at 6783 Marginal Way South will have higher quality and larger office and warehouse storage space than it had in the past, as well as new opportunities to engage with the local community members and business people. As with all professional storage locations operated by Gentle Giant, the Seattle storage warehouse offers secure storage and climate controlled facilities. 

Gentle Giant Founder and CEO Larry O'Toole will be on location to officially open to the new Seattle moving and storage location on Wednesday, July 21st at 2:30 p.m.  Media, neighbors, and customers are welcome to visit the branch location to meet O'Toole as well as the branch manager Nick Temme and other Gentle Giant Moving Company leaders and employees.  Please email Stephen Coady at scoady@gentlegiant.com or call 617-806-1068.
