Craning & Specialty Moving

Craning & Specialty Moving

Gentle Giant Moving Company offers an array of moving services, including craning services and custom crating, because we understand many moves require more than moving boxes and standard pieces of furniture from one home to another.

Whether you have a heavy sleeper sofa that needs to be craned from the third floor, a valuable piece of art that needs specialty crating and installation, a complex piece of gym equipment, or a treasured piano moving to a new home, we are trained and equipped to professionally and carefully complete the job for both local moving and for long distance moves.

Piano Moving

We have been a trusted mover of pianos since we started moving in 1980. All moving crews are experienced and specially trained in piano moving. From grand pianos to uprights, we execute even the most challenging piano moves requiring craning and rigging. In addition to piano moving, we offer climate-controlled piano storage.

Crane Moving Service

When your armoire needs to go to the top floor and it won’t fit up the stairs, we have the craning equipment to get the job done. From complex rigging jobs, to single items of furniture, Gentle Giant crews are trained and experienced to crane whatever you need for your move.

Furniture Elevator

When you live on the top floor and access is tight, let our furniture elevator save you time and money. Our newest piece of specialty equipment is the Boker Furniture Elevator. In the right circumstances, we employ this machine to turn a long day of climbing stairs into a quick, efficient move.

Assembly and Disassembly

Many large items such as pool tables, gym equipment, and custom cabinetry require disassembly before they are moved, as well as reassembly once in your new home. We have a team of trained professionals led by a master carpenter who can manage these aspects of moving.

Art and Media Installations

One of the greatest hassles of moving can be removing, packing, and reinstalling all of your art, media, and fixtures in your new home. A trained team of Gentle Giant professionals can take on this task for you, saving you time and energy for the other aspects of your move.

Custom Crating

For your most valuable and fragile possessions, we deliver peace of mind by building custom crates to fit almost anything. From flat screen televisions, to marble tabletops and delicate artwork, our in-house workshop hand assembles every crate to specific measurements.
