What You'll Get
Before professional moving companies, homeowners would host open casting calls for able-bodied movers who would accept payment in the form of pizza, beer, or used cardboard. Experience a more restful relocation with today's Groupon: for $100, you get $200 worth of moving services from Gentle Giant Moving Company. This Groupon is valid for moves originating 30 miles from the Gentle Giant warehouse location in Tarrytown, excluding the New York City boroughs.
Part of a Massachusetts-based chain of moving companies, Gentle Giant Moving Company safely and efficiently transports clients' belongings to their new home. In the weeks before the big day, a move coordinator will be assigned to each customer to answer any questions and give them advice on packing, streamlining inventory, how to avoid packing the family dog, and ordering materials. On moving day, friendly, professional staff members will arrive on the scene to carefully load all items—from large furniture to prize sugarwork collections—onto their trusty relocation vehicles. Gentle Giant charges a rate of $96–$312 an hour based on number of movers, trucks, and day of the week for local moves (within 100 miles of origin). For local moves, the crews start their clock when they leave the office and end it when they return at the end of a job.
Although not included in the Groupon, Gentle Giant also sells a variety of packing supplies, including boxes to move knickknacks, cartons to cradle pictures, and packing tape to fasten Kick Me signs on the backs of new neighbors.
