Larry O’Toole

President and Founder
The founder and CEO of Gentle Giant Moving Company, Larry O'Toole, is focused on developing leaders, expanding our award winning service across the country and having a meaningful impact on the communities we serve.

Early in his career, Larry was an engineer at Eaton Corporation. He quit his job to escape the corporate life, pursue writing interests and explore his entrepreneurial side. While preparing to start a light manufacturing company and not wanting to dig in to his savings, Larry rented his roommate's van and started performing moves around Boston. Before long, offering quality moving services became a passion, and Gentle Giant was born.

Larry's life as a rower has taught him to be competitive, disciplined and persistent. Larry is a creative problem solver, and is always willing to step in and complete difficult moves with enthusiasm. Outside of work, Larry tends to his extensive collection of rare, mint condition moving boxes.

Mindaugas heard about Gentle Giant fro 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.

Marshfield, MA Move

Bambi was so friendly and accommodating. The young men you sent were extremely polite and worked very hard.
It was exceedingly hot, but they never complained.

The guys were great, timely, hard working, and thoughtful.



I can’t enough good things about my entire experience with Gentle Giant, from my initial call to packing my house yesterday. It’s clear there’s an institutional focus on customer service and performance. Tom, Tyler and Rob were great. I still don’t know how they managed to pack my Pod. It’s as much of an art as it is sheer hard work. All nice folks on top of it all.

I will be in touch as soon as I know when I’m moving in to my new place.



Professional crew. Deliberate. Careful with fragile items. Good work all around.



I just wanted to send a quick note of thanks and let you know our crew was fantastic- everything went much faster than we anticipated, and we appreciate how hard they worked to get things done in such a timely fashion. I also appreciate Bambi’s work on getting the move scheduled- I felt like I had nothing to worry about (and I worry a lot). Thanks again!


Boston, MA Move

I had a great experience with Gentle Giant. I would definitely recommend your company to others.

in Boston, MA,


Robert, Theo, and Michael were incredible. I could never have asked for a better team of movers. I was so nervous about the move and they put my mind at ease, especially Robert. When they first arrived, we were waiting for 2 cars to be moved. They stayed busy prepping the big furniture items that needed to be moved and assured me everything was going to be fine and it was. The cars got moved and Robert was able to park the truck expertly where the cars were. I was also anxious about the furniture going down the 3 sets of windy stairs but the team made it happen. Robert knew the exact physics needed so that the furniture didn’t get stuck. The team also hoisted the box spring off the balcony without any issues. I was thoroughly impressed by the moving team from start to finish and I have already recommended Gentle Giant to my roommate.



This was a very complicated move that implied for the truck to make 5 different stops to distribuite part of the furniture of a big house I owned. Erin Gilcoine was more than extraordinary at helping me review countless of times the content of the vaults and the distribution. We had several telephone conversations to organize what was going to my new home, new storage in Brookline, my son’s home, my office, and a friend’s house. She was on top of every detail and, even though she was on vacation for the actual day of the move, everything was ready with her notes and instrucciones. Every thing was smooth. During the moving day I realized I had made some mistakes, or changed my mind about the destination of some piece of furniture. The actual movers accomodated to the changes and were incredibly patient with the organization of such a big operation.



The movers arrived in good time; were very efficient and professional; they were kind; polite, careful. They listened and were overall very helpful.



Michael and Ed were outstanding. Polite, professional and careful.
