Moving can be stressful, so leave the hard work to us!  We’ll come the day before your move and pack everything for you.  When you hire Gentle Giant to pack your valuable belongings there is the added guarantee that your items will arrive safe and sound at the other end.  We take the necessary care and precision required to pack everything from crystal stemware to your baseball card collection like they were our own.  If you want to pack yourself, though, we offer free delivery of moving boxes to your home too!

Antonio "Tony" Rodenas

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.

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.

Gentle Giant Moving Company has top notch qualities- reasonably priced, efficient, and personable. I believe they underestimated how much furniture could fit in my garage but they did not complain and they got it done in a reasonable amount of time. I would normally not allow someone, other than myself or family, to move my antiques and fine china, but for a small fee, they wrapped everything up perfectly and it arrived at my new home without a scratch. I would recommend Gentle Giant Moving to family, friends and anyone else in need of a moving service!

This crew lead by Tony was amazing. It was a long day, yet they never let up their effort for a minute and stayed really positive throughout. That’s a huge a tailwind for a really stressful life event. No complaining at all when they realized they would have to lug a couch up nine flights.
