Best of Boston Hall of Fame Member Again Recognized for Fast and Careful Crews

I would like to thank and congratulate everyone who works at Gentle Giant Moving Company for being part of such a winning team.

Gentle Giant Moving Company (, a premier residential moving and storage company headquartered in Massachusetts has been named Best Mover by Boston Magazine for the ninth time. Winners were announced in the 2008 Best of Boston issue on July 29th.

The magazine's editorial staff commented, "Anyone who's used inferior movers knows the torture of watching them slowly load a single box onto the truck. You won't need to stifle the urge to grab a handcart and goose the friendly Gentle Giant guys, who gather as much as they can carry, unload, and literally sprint back for more." They added, "And that brawn doesn't come at the cost of finesse: Everything arrives at your new home unscathed."

"It is very exciting to be named Best of Boston because the people who work at Gentle Giant strive to be the best in the eyes of our customers, so it's very gratifying to receive this honor," said Gentle Giant's president and founder Larry O'Toole. "I would like to thank and congratulate everyone who works at Gentle Giant Moving Company for being part of such a winning team."
