GRAY — Two moving industry veterans are bringing new moving and storage services here with the opening of Corporate Moving Specialists LLC, a new interstate agent of Atlas Van Lines.

The company is expected to focus on local, interstate and long-distance household moving and storage services, and corporate relocation.

Two managing partners/owners — Ron Potter and Randy Durham — acquired the assets of another Gray-based moving company in starting the new venture. They have a combined 47 years of professional experience.

As an agent of Atlas Van Lines, the company has access to the moving plans and resources of Atlas’ domestic and international agent network.

“Our team at Corporate Moving Specialists is focused on increasing client base and offering the best possible moving services to its customers,” Potter said in a prepared release. “With the capabilities and support of the Atlas Van Lines network, we look forward to bringing this Gray, Tenn., agency to its full potential. Our focus on developing new areas of business is something we’re excited about as well.” 

Steve Hermann, vice president of Agency Development at Atlas Van Lines, noted: “When Corporate Moving Specialists purchased the assets of the previous company, they not only saved jobs in the local area, they began laying the groundwork for future growth and success. This acquisition is a success story of bringing a former moving company under a more promising and stable business plan.” 

Consisting of nearly 500 interstate agents across the United States and Canada, the Atlas Van Lines agency network facilitates approximately 80,000 moves worldwide each year.
