There’s A Momentous Merger In The Air….

We are pleased to announce that as of Friday 14th October 2016, Gerson Relocation, Abels Moving Services and Momentous Relocation have been merged under common ownership led by Paul Evans. Phil Pertoldi, the current Managing Director of Abels Moving Services, will remain with that company as its Chairman. The merger combines the strength of three leading moving and relocation brands delivering a wider menu of services, increased resources, and greater capacity to clients.

Gerson Relocation (formerly Michael Gerson Ltd) has been synonymous with delivering unrivalled quality moving and relocation services to corporate clients since 1961. This attention to detail and customer focus, led to the company becoming the very first relocation recipient of the “Queen’s Award for Export” and were selected to move Margaret Thatcher both into and out of Number 10 Downing Street.

Under the Royal Warrant “By Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen”, Abels Moving Services is a highly acclaimed specialist in residential and international moving services and is also a leader in commercial moving and new furniture distribution. Abels has a reputation for delivering exemplary service.

Momentous Relocation is a leader in international moving, relocation, commercial distribution and the movement of fine arts. Over the last two years, the company has more than doubled in revenue.

Commenting on the merger, Paul Evans, said “We are very excited about the future of the new group, given the enormous strengths and reputation of the three brands and the combined experience. We are delighted that Phil Pertoldi will remain with the Group and I know he is excited about working with us to maintain the quality driven ethos of all three companies, while making sure we adapt and grow to meet the changing expectations and needs of all of our clients.”
