Graebel SGMS chief executive officer and president of the global relocation firm, together with Robert and Vasilia Peterson have made a joint announcement that they have entered into a formal agreement regarding the sale and acquisition of Graebel Van Lines, Inc., and the U.S. moving and storage operations of Graebel Movers, Inc. In this landmark announcement, it was also conveyed that the two business units will be acquired under the Petersons’ newly formed holding company Graebel Vanlines, LLC.

Terms of this agreement will not be disclosed. Interviews will be scheduled with the Graebels and the Petersons after the transaction has closed.

Today, Graebel Van Lines, Inc., and Graebel Movers, Inc, the largest wholly-owned carrier and moving and storage network in North America, perform household goods and commercial office relocation services for the Fortune 500 and Global 100.

Graebel Relocation Services Worldwide, Inc., Graebel Movers International, Inc., Move Management, Inc. and Graebel Commercial Services, Inc. are excluded in this agreement, and will continue to operate under the umbrella of the Graebel Companies, Inc. led by William Graebel.
