Assistant 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 2006 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.

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 and seeing them happy with the end results. 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 made him feel like a part of the team.

From beginning to end this was the most professional and organized move I've had. Everyone made me feel that when the day came for the move there wouldn't be any problems (there wasn't). Erik and Dominic in sales were quick to respond and Rachael communicated all of my information to the movers, including street construction, and also answered all of my questions. Amari, Japheth and Izaiah were friendly, and very quick and thorough. Everything was handled with care. Ironically, my neighbor moved the day before and used a different moving service and I could tell that by contrast they weren't up to the level of professionalism that Gentle Giant offered. In the past my movers have been hit or miss, but I'll definitely use Gentle Giant again.

I had an awesome moving experience with Gentle Giant. It's pricey, but you get what you pay for. Absolutely worth it. I moved from a 5th floor walkup (where I'd lived for seven years, lots of stuff including my piano and a storage bed) to a 3rd floor walkup. It was a two day move where they packed everything up Day 1 and moved everything Day 2. Shout-out to CLAY, KYLE, NOAH and STEN for an incredibly professional job. These guys were on BEAST MODE the entire time despite a very physically tasking job in mid-July heat, and I couldn't have asked for a better team. Highly recommend Gentle Giant!

This was one of the best experiences with a business I've ever had - I will never use a different company. Krystal and Rachael stayed diligent and patient getting my move prepared as we worked to ensure I had a fair rate and proper COIs for both the building I was leaving as well as moving into.Communicative & Patient:Before my move we had so many small details to prep related to my building's COI needs. Rachael and Krystal always responded in less than an hour and would quickly be available for calls if needed.On moving day, my movers gave me peace of mind by sending text and gave me a call when on their way - keeping me posted about parking, updates and any expected delays.Efficient, Trustworthy, Expert MoversAll three of three of my movers were dedicated, trustworthy, strong and experienced - Patiently helping me wrap and protect my most important belongings, strategizing on getting big items in and out of small entryways.I moved from the UWS of Manhattan to Bronxville NY. I will never use another moving company!

This was absolutely the best moving experience ever! Tony and crew were amazing! I told my husband if we have to move again, we are only moving with Gentle Giants. They were friendly, kind, considerate- and made sure everything was put together and the job was done right. Nothing broke, not even a scratch. It was amazing and I have to tell you- use this company, you will be so happy you did.

Clay and his team were extremely professional. They were helpful and cheery and courteous, and they made sure everything was just right before they left. They finished faster than the estimated time but didn’t rush at all. I could not have asked for a more pleasant moving experience.

I contacted Gentle Giant for an estimate to move a few pieces of furniture (2 big leather sofas, a tufted leather ottoman, recliner, mattress, boxspring and two bedroom bureaus). Patrick, the sales representative, helped me with an estimate. He was professional, responsive and very friendly. GG was not the cheapest estimate but certainly fair and close to the other companies. My Husband and I had heard GG was very reputable so we hired them. The day of the move Daniel and Simon were the two gentlemen from GG that took care of moving all of our furniture. They were terrific from start to finish!! We got a call from them telling us they were 30 minutes away. They arrived exactly at the time that we were slotted. Simon and Daniel were extremely professional, efficient and handled all of our furniture with great care!! They made the move so easy and painless for us. We have had 8 moves over the years with professional movers. Gentle Giant by far was the best moving company we have used! Daniel and Simon, thank you for all of your help!! Beth M.

This was my second time using Gentle Giant and I would use you again in a second. The Brooklyn team led by Ezra exhibited professionalism, care, respect and were friendly and helpful. Ezra arrived on time and he and his crew worked quickly and tirelessly in-spite of the cold and elevator problems which required using the stairs part of the time. Great care was taken moving the furniture and not one item was damaged. The crew maintained COVID guidelines and that proved to be a challenge that Ezra and the team took in their stride. I can’t begin to say enough about this positive experience with these true gentlemen. This is customer service at its best. No wonder you have the reputation you do! Thank you!

After Gentle Giant handled a family member's out of state move and seeing their care and professional approach I booked GG to handle a recent office move. We had to move the date a couple of times but Andrew and Rachel were on point every step of the way to make sure everything was smooth on moving day. The move itself was a great experience and Ezra, Simon and the whole crew know what they are doing! We had lots of art, mirrors and delicate items and they treated our belongings with the utmost care. Thank you! Highly recommend.
