As a woman-owned company in an industry where those are few and far between, Gentry Moving & Storage prides itself in a 17-year legacy of offering a personalized touch to ensure families can enjoy a stress-free move. Founded by Christine Crum as a small moving business with a single truck, Gentry has since grown to include 25,000 square feet of short- and long-term storage, full packing services, a unique Seniors on the Move program, and long-distance moving – from Maine to Florida.
No matter the distance or the circumstances of a move, a dedicated customer service team looks after families throughout the process, from ensuring they feel safe letting movers into their home to scheduling travel logistics. “Clients will work with one of our highly experienced move coordinators assisting them in finding the dates you will need. That personalized customer service along with excellent prices is what sets us apart from the competition,” says Christine.
With a background in education, Christine has fostered a culture of compassion and understanding among employees, which is reflected in the helpful voice you’ll hear on the other end of your call.
“Our admin staff is heavily on the female side,” she says, noting that this is rarely the case in the industry but a secret sauce to Gentry’s success. “It’s often the woman who is coordinating the logistics of the move; oftentimes she’s the one who’s home for the move and orchestrating everything. When you work all of that out with another female, someone who gets the struggle, it’s kind of comforting.”
Especially for long-distance moves, knowing there’s someone willing to go the extra mile to meet your needs is essential. While many big companies handle long-haul moves, Gentry ensures transparency and flexibility from start to finish.
“When you go with the large carriers, you’re given a window of time of when they’ll arrive, usually two to three weeks, and you’re often put on an 18-wheeler with multiple other families’ storage containers,” says Christine. “When you use Gentry, you’re in one truck (unless you need two!), it’s just your family, and when we load that truck with your stuff, it’s on that truck until it gets dropped off at its destination.” You choose the day and time to fit your schedule, and the same friendly face that helped pack up your old home will be there to assist with the delivery when you arrive.
A well-established and fully insured company, Gentry has invested in the most recent technology over the years to complement their array of services. All trucks have GPS tracking and camera systems to keep up to date with where your belongings are at any point in the trip or if traffic might delay its arrival time.
Christine and the team at Gentry look forward to adding brand new trucks to their fleet this spring, allowing them to serve even more Rhode Islanders embarking on their next journey, whether locally or beyond.
