About Boston

For more than 40 years Boston, Massachusetts has been the home and National headquarters for Gentle Giant moving company. After graduating from Northeastern University our Founder and President, Larry O’Toole, started Gentle Giant while living in Cambridge and in-between engineering jobs. Famous for institutions of higher education, Boston’s student population influences a highly diverse population as well as a constant influx of new residents to the city. September first has become notorious as the date that most apartment leases turn over and is the biggest moving day of the year in the Boston.

First settled in 1625 and later incorporated in 1822, Boston serves as the seat of many historical events and places from the American Revolution onwards. The age of the city and its residential neighborhoods have greatly influenced the growth of Gentle Giant and the way we execute moving jobs. From the tight alleys of the North End to the 5th floor walk-up apartments in the Back Bay, our challenging environments have forced us to innovate and excel to become the best movers in the city of Boston. We recruit individuals that possess the strength and stamina to move from one fifth floor apartment to another and deliver on our promise of exceptional customer service.

Boston is a culturally vibrant city with no end of events and attractions. Boston is home to many sports championships and teams including the Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins, and Patriots. Our rich history is reflected in the many art museums such as the Museum of Fine Arts, the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum, and the Institute of Contemporary Art. 680,000 people are proud to call Boston home, and Gentle Giant is proud to move them there.

Somerville Group Manager
Mindaugas heard about Gentle Giant from his brother, Donatas, who worked at Gentle Giant during the summer on a J-1 visa. His favorite part of working at Gentle Giant is the people, both his colleagues and the customers whom he interacts with daily. Once he started at Gentle Giant, he felt he was in the right place and decided to continue a career here. He believes the Gentle Giant culture - including honesty, enthusiasm, teamwork, respect and going above and beyond - brings out the best in people and are the ingredients that every Giant is made of.

Outside of work, he enjoys motorcycles and the process of fixing them. He also enjoys traveling, fishing and being with his friends and family. His parents and his brother, Donatas, live in Lithuania.

Rolando Maldonado

Crew Chief
Rolando became a Giant in April 2014 and has gone from strength to strength ever since! He quickly progressed from mover to Crew Chief and credits the development program here at GG with making this a possibility. Rolando was connected to Gentle Giant through Parkour Generations where he was an athlete and teacher. His athleticism made him an obvious fit for GG given the physical and often strenuous nature of moving.

Rolando is a natural athlete and enjoys playing baseball, running track and, of course, lots of parkour outside of work.

Just moved from MA to CT and my Gentle Giant crew was EXCEPTIONAL! Alex, Benjamin, Erikas and Rokus went above and beyond from start to finish. We had them come pack on day 1, load day 2, and move day 3 all in 90 degree weather. They were incredibly kind, professional, attentive and efficient. They handled every item of ours with great care. Alex went above and beyond to make sure the entire move went smoothly from start to finish and coordinated it all. I highly recommend Gentle Giant, and specifically this crew, for any move and will be using them for any moves in the future!

I recently used Gentle Giant to move to a new apartment. The moving team (Jordan, Mantvydas, Nerijus) were AMAZING!! I still can't get over how quickly, efficiently, and carefully they packed and moved everything. This included breaking down furniture and carefully putting them together again in the new place. They showed up on time (even slightly earlier than the arrival window I was given). The entire process was done in half the time I expected them to. Each person on the team was friendly and professional, and I really appreciated how respectful they were, patiently answering all my questions and concerns. They were really great to work with. Gentle Giant is now my go to when I need to move again!

Such amazing experience. Team was so professional and did such a beautiful job packing and moving my things. Took the time to rearrange my livingroom 3 times to ensure all of the furniture was evenly spaced and balanced. Would not consider ever using anyone else

Excellent experience with these guys. The move-out and move-in crews were both very friendly, professional, and fast. Upon move-in, one of our bookshelves had skewed a bit in transit. Without any urging, Dainius began fixing the nails and the alignment, and got it square and solid again for us. No other damage, no breakages or losses. If I ever moved long distance again, I'd choose Gentle Giant.

Had the best experience moving with Gentle Giant from Cambridge to Swampscott. Mindaugas, dziugas, and Ethan were incredible from start to finish. Very friendly, extremely professional and quick! I have worked with other moving companies and I will never again - gentle giant is the absolute best in the business. Don’t give it a second thought!

Moving can be an incredible stressful experience— Gentle Giant went above and beyond to make sure that it was as smooth as possible. Our packers, Egor and Carlos, arrived the day before our move. They took great care ensuring that all of our belonging were packed up safely, appropriately labeled, and that none of our essentials were packed by mistake. They were thorough and quick. The day of the move, Chuck, Lawrence, and Sean were equally as thorough and quick. All of our belongs were moved from two separate locations with care and efficiency. Even when faced with unforeseen obstacles, Chuck exemplified the utmost professionalism by keeping a cool, level-head when others weren’t feeling so cool and level-headed. He did everything in his power to make sure that our day was not tarnished by an unpleasant blip and we are forever grateful. The company as a whole was also wonderful with communication throughout the process, prompt, and worth every penny!

Gentle giant is unlike any other moving company! If you ever had the poor judgment to try another company - you’d be back.

Just yesterday I hired Gentle Giant for the second move I had in one year - from Washington to Boston and this experience was as seamless and pleasant as any move can be! The support in setting up move dates, timeliness, care and consideration for my goods from office personnel to moving staff was fantastic! Moving is stressful and movers were on time and accommodated my requests - and were careful with unwrapping and setting up furniture. Having movers that are courteous, work at a good pace ( in the heat) adds to a grewt experience!HIGHLY recommend Gentle Giant !

Cannot say enough positive comments on our experience with Gentle Giant. From the initial contact, everything was meticulously planned and communicated. Our movers called in advance of their arrival to give us precise times (we moved out one day and moved into our new place three days later). They were fast, polite and careful with our possessions. While we hope not to have to move soon, we would definitely use GG when we do and would recommend them to anyone moving.
