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.

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.

Jeff Klossner is considered to be an “everyman” at Gentle Giant because he excels in all the areas that make a fantastic Giant. He is incredibly kind, patient, strong, experienced and smart.

Since joining the company in 2005, Jeff has played many roles, including mover, crew chief and group manager, and has shined in every one. Even when faced with extraordinarily difficult pieces, you’d never know because he handles these situations with grace and ease.

Outside of work, he enjoys hiking mountain peaks, both local and abroad, with his friends and wife, working on his house and reading a good book.

I cannot praise Gentle Giant enough. Our crew, Azoulas, Jeremiah, Sandor, and Sean were outstanding! They were friendly, efficient, caring and patient throughout the entire move. They made it look so easy! They were the best in all regards. The whole process from the initial estimate through to the move itself could not have been smoother. Gentle Giant is clearly the absolute winner when it comes to moves. They put your mind at ease and take so much of the stress out of the move. I wouldn't want to use any other moving company. Many thanks to the entire team, we are grateful and thankful for your impeccable service.

Happy with the service/price.I would recommend that other customers in my position (moving big furniture through 2nd story window) seriously consider Gentle Giant's crane offering, rather than hoist.I went with hoist and it's okay, but I think the crane would be worth it (even if a little more expensive) due to less risk of anything (the house, the furniture, or the movers...) getting hurt.

The movers were so patient and kind as well as professional while helping my 92 Uncle pack, move, and then unpack his belongings. I was so impressed and appreciative as to how they all conducted themselves working with an elderly person who took extra time to process things. I recently moved and hired a different company, and even though I had a good experience, I feel after seeing the professionalism of GG and the overall experience we had, I would not hesitate to use them again. Thanks guys!

Just Love Gentle Giant -- in the last 3 years I have used them for multiple whole house moves (combining 2 households into one new house and an interim move before that).This week, I needed them for a small in house move -- moving several large pieces of furniture into a new loft space in a barn we just renovated. The guys were fastidious about wrapping a large leather sectional for the move and protecting our floors. They were in an out in 1 hour. So they are great for huge whole house moves and this small 1 hour job that involved lots of steps and a tricky turn with large furniture. The BEST and reasonable pricing!

This was my third time using Gentle Giant. I love them because they show up on time, get it done fast and it's always super nice people that do the moving. Fantastic team today. And the final cost was less than the estimate!

I had a heavy difficult move with large pieces. The team was professional and organized. They accommodated every issue with ease and care as if it was their own property. I would gladly use this company again and again. I feel so lucky I found movers who took their job seriously. Not one scratch!

Beginning to end, Gentle Giant was wonderful. The coordinator, Andrea, and the entire move team on both ends led by Orion, were reliable, punctual, responsible, friendly, and trustworthy. They went out of their way to be accommodating and to make the move as stress-free as possible. Highly recommend!
