Worldwide relocation firm Graebel Companies has announced plans for a global expansion, following the divestiture of the company’s US moving services divisions, Graebel Van Lines and Graebel Movers, to Robert and Vasilia Peterson.

Global expansion
Graebel Relocation Services Worldwide, Graebel Movers International, Move Management, and Graebel Commercial Services are excluded from the transaction, and will continue to operate under the umbrella of Graebel Companies, led by CEO William H Graebel.“Since 1950, we have strategically acquired or built business entities from the ground up,” said William Graebel. “Our decision to sell the successful, legacy US moving services divisions that are steeped in our family’s history is unquestionably the right move for everyone.“For our clients around the world, our global enterprise is well positioned to be an ever-more-valuable resource. Among the initiatives underway is a breakthrough Graebel technology that will bring contemporary levels of business intelligence reporting and predictive analytics for customers everywhere.“Above all, we remain committed to exceeding expectations with our people’s exceptional administration of world-class relocation programmes and services.”Of the company’s reasons for expansion, William Graebel said, “Today, our clients are found on six continents, and their expectations are vastly different compared to only a few years ago. For over seven decades, we have consciously listened to our customers to pro-actively transform our organisation and services to meet their present and future needs.“It is for this reason that we opened and expanded several times our global relocation and mobility management centres in the APAC and EMEA regions, starting in 2008. Starting this year, we will launch new value-added services in the global marketplace, and will continue our global footprint expansion.”Chairman of the board David W Graebel added, “This successful divestiture marks our latest transformation and the beginning of an exciting new era that will bring enormous benefits for our customers, and for their relocating people around the globe, now and for decades to come."“It is important to reiterate that an enormous amount of the heavy lifting associated with a decision of this magnitude has taken place to ensure a textbook transition that will be seamless for all parties, and particularly for all Graebel customers," concluded William Graebel.“Because our organisation has been built on understanding the changing needs of our customers, we will continue to work closely with, and collaborate with, the Petersons’ management team.”For further information about Graebel Relocation, please visit
