Santini Brothers Moving

via press release:




New York, NY – August 13, 2013 – HISTORY® presents the brand new original series THE GREAT SANTINI BROTHERS, which follows the Brooklyn-based family owned moving business “Santini Brothers Moving.” The series premieres Sunday, September 15th at 10PM ET/PT.


In the city that never sleeps, owning a moving business is loaded with stress. Expensive objects, tough customers, inevitable traffic and impossible parking make moving in the Big Apple a force to be reckoned with. However, no matter how bizarre or challenging the move, the Santini Brothers are the guys New Yorkers want to call. Owners George and Joe Sr. have dedicated their lives to the family business and as they approach their golden years they’re looking to pass the torch down to their sons Nick and Joe Jr. – but is the next generation ready?


The boys have just rejoined the business, so to retrain them George and Joe Sr. are taking them on some of their strangest moves — from moving pythons to pianos to antique suits of armor – they’re not going to make anything easy.  Family businesses are the backbone of America, but most do not survive the transition from the founders to the next generation. The boys have a long way to go, and if this Italian-American "famiglia" is going to succeed, they'll all have to stick together.


THE GREAT SANTINI BROTHERS is produced for HISTORY by Thinkfactory Media. Executive producers for Thinkfactory Media are Adam Freeman, Adam Reed, Rico Martinez and Leslie Greif. Michael Stiller and Susan Werbe are executive producers for HISTORY.

    I was hoping this was about the 7 Santini Brothers Moving Company, a much more compelling story of 7 brothers who came over from Fandagno Italy and built an international moving company based in the Bronx,in the early 1900`s There`s still a Santini Blvd named for them. A show on that NYC company would be a much better show, and would actually be History. The company is no longer Family owned, but it still exists, and there`s plenty of Family around that worked there, and could supply all kinds of information for you.

    My husband is going to love this. He already loves Storage Wars, American Pickers, Pawn Stars, etc. Throw in a little Brooklyn and what more could you ask for?!

    Was Howard Stern the guy moving with the tobacco boxes. He gave a little Lucky Strike tutorial. Looked just like Howard but they never said his name.

    Hey Tim,

    I to am familiar w/the 7 Bros., My grandfather and uncles used to talk about them all the time, but I must say that these guyz represent the life and history of a nyc italian moving company to a T! I should know, I,m a third generation mover and this family business and show doesn’t have to represent the 7 to represent a true family moving co. This show brought back alotta memory’s and I am thankful to the history channel and these guyz for airing this show! I’d recommend this show to anyone especially anyone considering moving in NYC, fuggetabout the pod or uhaul-give these goodfellas a try!

    I absolutely loved the show these guys are ny after watching the show I realize why I choose to live here because its exciting interesting there is no place on earth like nyc and growing up in Brooklyn and queens and in a small family buisness it brings me down memory lane but in ny its just another nyc story and good luck guys keep doing the doing

    How do you figure The Santini 7 Brothers is still in business. They were shut down after McDonald brothers bought them out. There is one guy in south florida using the name and claiming to be family. But the few family members I asked don’t know of him. This show is feeding off of the 7 brothers legacy.
