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.

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.

We have used Gentle Giant for multiple moves, both within and interstate, and for storage. They have given us excellent service every time and took good care of our belongings in storage. Their move organizers do a terrific job, they are incredibly responsive and the crew that does the moving are well trained and have done a great job for us on every move. They also show up on time! Our last move was in July 2022 and they were fantastic. Thank you Gentle Giant!

Great communication from their office and from the foreman, who texted me the day before to sync instructions. Prompt replies to email inquiries. And careful tracking of our belongings. Thanks, Gentle Giant!

Moved my son and daughter-in-law from Virginia to Pennsylvania, provided excellent service, went above and beyond, at a fair price. So relieved my family found this firm.

Gentle Giant is an amazing moving company and I highly recommend it to anyone moving locally or across the US. I had a complicated move that had 2 cities of origin, 2 destinations and some time needed in storage. Both the customer service / move coordinators and the movers were responsive, courteous and professional. Special shout-out to Tony and his crew in New York and the Fort Lauderdale team!

Best moving company ever—I've used them three times. They're great at communicating clearly and quickly before the day of the move, and their team of movers are friendly, professional, and very skilled at solving problems, e.g. moving furniture through tight spaces and around various obstacles. 10/10 would absolutely recommend.

Start to finish Gentle Giant was incredible! Patrick and Terrence could not have been more helpful answering my questions, reviewing my move plan and making sure I was set with everything I needed for our move date. Thank you for your professionalism and care. The detail with which the logistics were managed was impeccable. The movers were phenomenal as well. Each of them worked tirelessly to ensure our belongings were cared for and that we were satisfied with the process. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I've used Gentle Giant twice now for moves in the city — everyone I speak to or meet has been pleasant and helpful and just good people. The rates are reasonable (especially since I've had to move a piano as part of my package), and it's just nice to be in good hands and have some peace of mind on what can be very stressful days.

'Twas a lucky day finding Gentle Giant to make our cross-country move! We lack sufficient superlatives to describe our utter satisfaction with this white glove service. From inception through completion of this enormous project––delicate, high value cargo, including a 7' Steinway (none of which received a scratch!)––every person was professional, kind, caring, meticulous––in short, EXEMPLARY. Kudos and gratitude!

Highly recommend!! I have used Gentle Giant six times in the NYC area from 2010 to 2022 from easy moves to complex three part moves and packing. Each time everyone was responsive, professional, flexible, understanding, timely, you name it. Unmatched in the NYC area. May not be the cheapest (haven’t compared recently) but I’ve never met a more reliable professional pleasant moving company with normal people. The guys stay on for years and I’ve had a few repeats. I’ve used big name movers cross country several times and they cannot even compare. Thank you!!

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.
