About Us

Company Information

We are a full-service Relocation Management Company (RMC) that helps leading corporations around the world strategically and seamlessly relocate their employees, teams and corporate workspaces with a people-first approach.

Our people-first approach

Over 70 years of meeting new challenges with progressive opportunities

Our company started by hauling household goods in 1950. This moving business grew and grew over decades, and set industry standards along the way.

Then an interesting thing happened. Technology and transportation improved. And more and more organizations started doing global business. International operations expanded. Provincial markets for goods and services became more competitive. All of a sudden, people weren’t just relocating between states; they were routinely moving across oceans. They were exploring new worlds. And they were challenged with learning a myriad of languages, cultures and regulations.

Somebody had to help organizations become much more strategic with their mobility efforts. So we did.

Today, Graebel is one of the top talent and workplace mobility providers in the world, serving 165 countries across six continents. We contract other people to actually move the household goods now. But our service-oriented spirit is still in our DNA. It’s how we help some of the world’s biggest organizations tap into new global opportunities and attract new generations of leaders. And we’re just getting started.

The family approach: committed to providing exceptional service

Our founder, David Graebel, was driven by the desire and determination to provide exceptional service to everyone he worked with. Through bold progression, Graebel grew quickly. Today, under the leadership of his son, Bill Graebel, the organization he started is recognized as the largest privately-owned relocation management company in the world – guided by the promise to provide exceptional relocation experiences.

Personalized care,global support

We deliver high-quality, personalized relocation services, no matter where in the world your employees need to go. With over 800 people worldwide, and operational and support centers located across the globe, we are able to provide relocation services in 165 countries.

Are we really any different?

We’ve always been a family business, not simply because generations of Graebel family members work here, but because of our shared values of respect, honor, and caring. We express these values in three words: Truth. Love. Integrity.

Honesty is the foundation of every healthy relationship, so Graebel seeks to live that value every day. We would much rather overdeliver than overpromise. We say what we’ll do, and we do what we say. But, although we are all bound by the fiber of truth, we are never abrasive or condescending in its delivery. We are respectful, realistic and straightforward in all our dealings.

You’ll seldom see “love” as a company value, and that’s just fine with us. It manifests itself in many ways at Graebel. Across the hall or across oceans, you can feel it. Love, as expressed by mutual respect. Love of self. Occasionally tough love. We love what we do. And, yes, we love working with our partners, clients—and each other!

And finally, there’s the high value we place on integrity. As the adage goes, “Doing the right thing when nobody is watching.” We’re not driven solely by numbers. Or a balance sheet. Integrity is at our core, and it’s one aspect of business with us that’s nonnegotiable.

Our values align directly with our commitment to sustainability and how we engage with people all over the world.

Diversity, equity and inclusion

Graebel is committed to building, sustaining and leveraging a diverse, inclusive and equitable workplace. We believe that by extension, then, those we work with — clients, mobile employees and supplier partners — will also feel the impacts of our inclusive culture.

Environmental stewardship

Our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) committee is charged with establishing environmental measures and initiatives across the globe. By integrating our environmental work with that of our supplier partners, internal teams and organizations, we help to minimize our carbon footprint throughout the relocation process.

People and communities

We support and challenge Graebel team members at all levels around the globe to apply our values of Truth, Love and Integrity both professionally and personally. Participating in and supporting local charities enables them to do the right thing on a local scale and make an impact within their own communities.
