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.

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 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.

I used Gentle Giant to move a few pieces of antique furniture out of my grandmothers co-op in NYC and out to the suburbs. They were so helpful and easy to work with, from getting a quote, scheduling the move, assuring the building of COVID protocols and actually executing the move. The guys showed up on time and got everything done super quickly without damaging anything. And their overall price for this project was way cheaper than other NY movers. Absolutely will use again.

I can't stress enough how great Gentle Giant is. I just moved today into my new home, and the GG team was TERRIFIC: on time, really nice, careful and mindful of all my things. I've used GG for every move I've had since 2011, and I have never EVER been disappointed.In addition, I had to reschedule this move multiple times for a couple of reasons. The customer service team is wildly flexible and understanding. I truly don't hope I'm moving any time soon, but if I do, it's Gentle Giant all the way!

Amazing from start to finish. Pat was amazing answering all of my questions (which there were a lot of) from helping me change the date of my move to helping me decide what time to book my flight after my move, he went above and beyond! Jackie called the day before to verify all my moving details and see if I needed any last minute supplies. Daniel and Vincent day-of were amazing - I have moved a lot and have had moving companies get frustrated when the number of boxes or exact number of items varied rom my estimate. They were so understanding and the whole move was a total breeze during a very stressful time amidst the pandemic. They helped remove AC from my window too which I thought I would have to throw away. Did not have to help them find parking as I did with my last movers - they were completely comfortable navigating an NYC move. Thanks all!!!

I emailed Gentle Giant about a move but made other arrangements before I received a quote. I was happy to receive a courtesy call from them letting me know that they were fully booked on the date I requested but wanted to make sure I was all set to move anyway. The man who called was professional and genuine. I’ll be using them when I move in the future.

Every crew encounter was positive. Careful and concerned about my possessions. A pleasure to deal with in a time of high stress.

Moving in the middle of a pandemic is extra stressful, so the smoothness with which our somewhat complicated move went cannot be celebrated enough. I've moved now 5 times in Brooklyn, and will never consider another mover again. The cost is more than other operations, but the peace of mind is priceless. The elevator in our move-out building broke temporarily, and they didn't flinch. They requested we not be in the spaces during the actual move, but were good at texting pics to check where things were supposed to go. A+

Professional, reliable, and flexible! Highly recommend Gentle Giant. Because of the time we’re in (COVID19), they facilitated our move 100% virtually; we didn’t have to be in the apartment for neither packing nor moving day. In fact, we were in a different state all together. The move was seamless. We are thoroughly impressed.

My second or third move with GG, including a grand piano. Wouldn’t consider anyone else. They are superb in every way; helpful in scheduling, on time, careful, polite. They take the trauma out of moving.

Tony, Miles and Mark made our move happen. They packed up our entire apartment - from clothes, dishes and toiletries to furniture and a giant elliptical machine - and moved it from Brooklyn to the Catkills. They were incredibly thorough, organized and careful. And they made it all SO EASY. They were great to work with and lovely to deal with throughout the process. I couldn't recommend them more!!

This is my fourth move with Gentle Giant over the years. I have used them for moves in Cambridge, New York, Martha’s Vineyard, and Los Angeles. They are terrific. I would use no one else. We moved personal items, electronics, large epson printer, art work. All was done beautifully. They are also very responsive to questions. We highly recommend them as a company.

Best moving experience ever. Love the attention to detail. Nothing damaged at all, even ultra-fragile stuff. Not the cheapest but well worth it. I’d recommend to anyone.

Fantastic crews bth in NY and Massachusetts. We had used Gentle Giant in the past and would not use any other mover.


NEW YORK, NY,

BROOKLYN, NY Move

The movers were exceptional! They arrived on time, moved furniture and breakables from two different locations 100 miles apart, and delivered everything to a third location with care, accuracy, and efficiency. I am more than delighted with them, and when it’s time to unload the storage locker into which they put everything, I will definitely use them again.

Tony and Isiah did an outstanding job and were great to work with. They communicated with me throughout the morning, notifying me that they were running ahead of schedule since an earlier job finished early, and then staying in touch to work with me to figure out the optimal arrival time. Once we started, they made short work of moving everything down four flights of stairs and packing it very safely and strategically in the truck I had rented. I made it to Maine with no damage and even took the time to write a Yelp review praising their work.

All three movers were extremely professional, patient and kind. Tony was very organized and flexible to my changing requests. Gus and Jay were efficient and careful with our possessions. We had a baby in the house, and the movers were very accommodating, waiting to move his items last, and trying to keep the noise down. This was a great experience and I’ll highly recommend the team to anyone who is planning to move.
