E&I has been made aware that Graebel Van Lines LLC (E&I Contract # CNR01258) will cease service operations as of Friday, March 17, 2017. E&I Members in need of Moving and Relocation Services are encouraged to utilize our Agreements with SIRVA (Allied Van Lines and North American Van Lines) or UniGroup (United Van Lines and Mayflower).
Effective immediately Graebel Van Lines is halting all operational aspects of the organization. After legal and senior management communication, we can now share that based upon our IT platform failures, and the subsequent domino effects, new ownership has opted to cease operations of Graebel Van Lines, LLC.Our number one concern remains the customers to ensure that alternative arrangements can be made.
All shipments currently loaded and on a truck will be serviced to completion.
Shipments not yet loaded or in route will require alternative arrangements. Two options available include:
- Shipment will need to be assigned to an alternative carrier.
- Due to the selling of rolling stock and assets across the country, if an addendum to the contract is signed, the move can be reassigned to the United Group. Current contractual terms would remain in effect.
Again, we apologize for the late notice and the additional leg work this may cause your organization.
Since 1950, Graebel Moving Services has operated with one goal in mind – to be a customer-focused, vertically-integrated global relocation organization.
- More than 1,900 highly-skilled Graebel employees, as well as almost 1,000 independent contractors (such as household goods drivers) working exclusively under contract with Graebel Moving Services to provide you with high quality services
- Graebel Moving Services does not rely on a series of independent agents, but owns and operates its entire service mechanism, including its van line, nearly 50 service centers, commercial services division, international forwarding operation and full service relocation management company.
