Our History

Our Beginning as a Family Business

Our story begins in 1884 with Joseph N. and Albert E. Grace, two brothers who started a small retail shop in downtown Sydney. The business was then known as Grace Bros.


They believed that a strong work ethic and quality customer service would grow their humble business into a trusted company throughout Australia.


Grace Bros. grew throughout the years, and in 1911, recognising an untapped market in the removals industry, they reinvested their profits into a moving company. Based out of Camperdown, the brothers began one of Sydney’s first moving companies with just two horse-drawn carts. They assisted people who were moving out of the city and into the suburbs, as well as ex-patriots looking to settle in the city.


100 Years of Reliable Service

In 1950, they opened the doors to the company’s first branch in Brisbane. Soon the company was opening branches all over Australia. 100 years on from their small family business beginnings, Grace Removals is now one of the largest removals companies in Australasia, with locations throughout Australia and New Zealand, and an extensive partner affiliations network around the globe.
