Brooklyn

The home of Gentle Giant’s NYC office, Brooklyn is famous for its burgeoning art scene and picturesque neighborhoods. The northwestern neighborhood of Park Slope tops the list. With beautiful brownstones lining the streets and green spaces in abundance, young families flock to Park Slope, but at a hefty price. Brooklyn’s Dumbo neighborhood is brimming with trendy restaurants and, if you are willing to pay the exorbitant entry fee, its many rooftop bars offer the perfect view of the Brooklyn Bridge.

Manhattan

The bustling borough of Manhattan is the geographically smallest and most densely populated of the boroughs. You will find many popular tourist attractions and movie set locations throughout Manhattan including Central Park, Wall Street, and the Empire State Building. As the cultural center of New York City, Manhattan also boasts one of the world’s greatest theater districts with endless Broadway shows to choose from. However, Manhattan’s real estate market is notoriously expensive. In July 2021, the top floor of a residential building known as ‘432 Park Avenue’ hit the market with an eye-watering asking price of US $169 million.

Queens

Queens is the largest borough of New York City in area and has a population of approximately 2.2 million residents. The population itself is one of the most ethnically and linguistically diverse in the U.S., and the borough offers its inhabitants and visitors a wide array of cuisines from Caribbean to Vietnamese. Queens’ residents are well used to the sound of airplanes buzzing overhead as two of the city’s main airports, John F. Kennedy International Airport and LaGuardia, are situated here.

Staten Island

The least populated of the five boroughs, Staten Island is sometimes referred to as the ‘forgotten borough.’ The area is not connected to the New York City Subway system. Instead, inhabitants can take the free Staten Island Ferry to Manhattan across New York Harbor. The Ferry is perfect for those in search of the best views of the Statue of Liberty. The world-famous statue is an American symbol of hope and was constructed in 1886 as a gift from the people of France.

The Bronx

The Bronx is a popular neighborhood for those looking to escape the concrete jungle. About a quarter of the borough is open space and residents and visitors alike can take advantage of its many green parks and fun outdoor activities. The Bronx Zoo is one of the world’s most famous zoos and is perfect for a fun-filled family day out. Its attractions include a butterfly garden and penguin feedings. This NYC borough is also where one of the more popular New York sports teams compete. You can catch the Yankees baseball team at Yankee Stadium where sporting legends like Babe Ruth and Derek Jeter once played.

Moving can be stressful, so leave the hard work to us! We’ll come the day before your move and pack everything for you. When you hire Gentle Giant to pack your valuable belongings there is the added guarantee that your items will arrive safe and sound at the other end. We take the necessary care and precision required to pack everything from crystal stemware to your baseball card collection like they were our own. If you want to pack yourself, though, we offer free delivery of moving boxes to your home too!

NY Regional Manager
Antonio, or Tony to his friends, is a native of New Rochelle, NY and has been essential to Gentle Giant's New York office since its 2005 opening. He has had his fair share of adventures working at Gentle Giant, but his biggest day-to-day concern is navigating the busy New York streets with people always chatting on their cell phones! He firmly believes that safety comes first, be it on the job or on the road.

When Tony isn't busy at work or lifting weights, he likes to play football or catch a good baseball game on television.

Bjorn heard about Gentle Giant through Amazing Moves in Denver, a moving company founded by a former Giant. His favorite part about working for Gentle Giant is loading items onto the truck as he enjoys formulating the strategy to fit every item safely into the space available. He says playing with Legos has prepared him well for this role!

Bjorn says long days of sweat and working hard helps to build a bond between coworkers. Outside of Gentle Giant, he enjoys making music.

Move Consultant
Jason is a Move Consultant for our New York area customers. He first heard about Gentle Giant through family members who were employed with us. His favorite part of life at GG is being able to work with his family and helping people through a stressful process. He gets great satisfaction out of seeing his clients happy with the end results of their move. His past experiences in sales and customer service prepared him well when he joined the team in 2015.

When reflecting on his first year with the company, Jason says it was mayhem because he was trying to learn so much at once, but says it was a fun experience and reminded him of his time working in the restaurant industry. He decided to make a career here when he noticed how well his coworkers treated him and the team camaraderie evident in the company.

I've done a lot of moves over the last few years, but my move with Gentle Giant last week is the best moving experience I've ever had.Tony and his team were absolutely incredible. They're super nice guys, and packed my entire 3-bedroom apartment up extremely quickly and with great care. Even my most fragile stuff was in 0 danger of breaking.The loading and unloading was just as fast. They did an awesome job checking with us about where everything went, and the whole thing was a breeze.I'm hoping to not move again for a while, but next time I do, I'll definitely use Gentle Giant and request Tony again. Best movers ever!

3rd time moving with Gentle Giant! They go above and beyond!!! They delivered a piano for my brother as a stop and Jay set it up and made sure it was perfect! Ezra took extra care to make sure everything was just right! Tony drove all the way from NY to NJ to set up my bed frame after we lost the screws to out it together! AMAZING

I called two other moving companies before I found Gentle Giant, ones I have seen multiple times around my area. I was able to get in touch with a person immediately, spoke to Rob and he was pleasant and very thorough with the estimate provided. I was a little hesitant about them with the higher pricing, but I was oh so glad I went with them. I read a few reviews before I made the call and they were really nice to deal with. Rachel, the coordinator was helpful and three movers that were provided were stellar. This is the first time I have used a moving company, but I couldn't have been more happy about the service. The movers were efficient, clear on what they needed from us, protected all the delicate and bigger items. They were very accommodating, it was two state move and multiple stops. It went so smooth, Iwas waiting for the shoe to drop, but it didn't. I would use them everytime, if I had to, and would recommend their services.
