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.

Somerville, MA Move

Scheduler Rachel was unfailingly pleasant even though we had to change the delivery date four or five times. Delivery guys also could not have been more courteous or professional. They were a pleasure to deal with and stayed calm and helpful even though they were coming into a very active and hectic site.

Movers did a superb job on a diffult task ; that of moving heavy furniture large furniture through an old house and delivering these pieces to another old home. They were very deliberate and thoughtful about disassembling and reassembling these pieces locating them to the customers’ satisfaction. This care was even extended to moving additional pieces once on site and befriending small dogs in the process.
Thank you for making this move both skillful and family friendly.

A huge relief was delivered flawlessly.


Charlestown, MA Move

Exceptional results again! **Everyone each step of the way was terrific – Carolyn, Whitney, and of course pro packers and movers – Duke, Pieter, Gy and Kris. Everyone knows moving is stressful. We really appreciated service and attention the team provided.

In past 18 years, we engaged Gentle Giant about 4 times and 1 small in-house move. **Gentle Giant provides peace of mind and great work during move transitions. Thanks much, everyone!

The two guys on my crew were very professional and efficient. They made my move quick and without any problems. I would use Gentle Giant again if I had any moving needs.



WE had JUST renovated ,and were moving back to our house. The team took pains to take care of the floors,and not to track in leaves , on a rainy day. They could not have been more considerate.


Franklin, MA Move

I’ve used you twice recently to move a piano and now large desk set to the lower level of our house. Both times crews were excellent and willing to use their expertise to help us. For example we had a lose piano leg; and the crew person knew how pianos are assembled and quickly fixed it while there.
