Gentle Giant Moving Company

Best Boston Movers

We are your hometown Boston Movers, and when it comes to the perfect, stress-free move, we really do hit it out of the park.  Gentle Giant is Boston born and bred. From the narrow streets of Beacon Hill and the North End, to the estates of Wellesley and Wayland, we know Boston.  We’re proud to serve all of eastern Massachusetts with eight locations across the state.

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 heavily recruit former college athletes 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 because he knew it was the right fit. 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.

We hired Gentle Giant for a move out of a condo in Boston. The building has very strict rules for movers, and Gentle Giant complied with all of them. Their movers were clean and careful. They did a good job at a price in line with their estimate.

This was the first time I had used a moving company in my 8 moves and really had no idea how things would go. I controlled all aspects of my previous moves and this time I stepped back and let Gentle Giant take control. I was really surprised at how fast and efficient they were. We had rain and they made sure the furniture was wrapped and protected. At my new home they asked where the furniture was to go and placed them there ( even moving after I changed my mind ). Took a lot of pressure off me and made the move easy. I would hire them again if I ever have to move again.Tom

The crew did a fantastic job. It was like watching a magic show! They were friendly, focused, and got the job done in an effective and efficient manner. I was also very pleased with the packing materials provided ahead of time and the ability to ask questions by email from my move consultants. I highly recommend Gentle Giant.

My husband and I have moved several times over the years, and these are hands down the nicest movers that we've hired. They were on-time, polite and very detailed and careful boxing up our household. We will definitely use them again.

The whole crew who came out to complete our move was amazing. The team, led by Max, was wonderfully efficient and incredibly friendly and thoughtful. You all lessened my stress level immensely and I am so appreciative! Would definitely hire them again.

There’s no question that Gentle Giant deserves their outstanding reputation - they truly are exemplary in what they do! Our move was complicated and included lots of high value items and Gentle Giant was fantastic. The entire team from start to finish was amazing - fantastic attention to detail, care, and focus on customer satisfaction. The team was fast but super careful, professional, friendly, and great to work with. We used their packing service in addition to moving and the packing team was really fast, but not so fast that they didn’t take great care of our belongings. I would only ever move with Gentle Giant in the future!

We had an outstanding experience this spring with Gentle Giant. The company was responsive, on top of the details, and the move team was outstanding. I have used Gentle Giant several times and have recommended them to many friends over the years- they are as good as ever!

Gentle Giant was no less than fabulous! They arrived on time, moved quickly, ensured everything was well protected and checked to make sure they were packing items that we wanted to move. They even noted that we had numbers written on a tag on many items and when the put protective coverings on the items for the move, they wrote the numbers on top of the coverings I highly recommend them for any move and we will definitely use them again when we move our furniture and boxes out of storage when our house is built.
