I had never heard of Graebel till I moved back from SC to Houston and it was
such a pleasant surprise to deal with a company like that. I had taken only
a few things in the Jeep and bought furniture, etc up there, which had to be
We had a "nightmare from hell' moving from CA to Houston in 1999. Luckily,
I had brought my serger with me, but my embroidery machine was broken and
DS's collection of rifles and antique hunting bow never made it to the
house, although we had watched the guys pack them and signed the paper
saying we had seen them loaded onto the truck, which I understand is the
common law for firearms. Anyway, they're gone, and we were compensated the
retail value, but they were antiques and irreplaceable. One, I had hand
engraved for a birthday gift by a well-known engraver.
North American moved me to CA and they were okay, no damage to anything
except a small typing table that had one corner damaged and a lamp had the
shade bent. They paid for both without a problem. The table had cost $30

I don't remember where it was bought.
DS hired a local company to move us to this house and he was on site with
every load they made, so nothing was lost or damaged. I was in SC, and he
took off work, stood watching the guys pack and load the truck, then drove
behind them and watched them unload. He knew how upset I'd been when we
came to Houston. He moved the portable sewing machines and the Waterford
crystal lamp in the car the night before.
Hopefully, this is my home for a long, long time.
