The Advance Group, New York City’s largest moving, logistics, delivery + installation, tech services and warehousing company is pleased to announce its recent acquisition of Sorensen Moving & Storage and Sorensen Logistics, operating out of Orlando and Melbourne (HQ), Florida.
Sorensen, established in 1956, has passed through three generations of the Sorensen Family. Scott Sorensen took control of the organization in 1977 and has constructed an outstanding organization built on quality values, focused leadership, and excellent customer service. After converting to Mayflower Van Lines and experiencing tremendous growth, Sorensen expanded into the Orlando market in 2013, opening a 150,000 sqft facility with a focus on logistics, commercial moving, installation and FF&E. Occupying over 200,000+ sqft between its facilities, Sorensen Moving & Storage has become one of the most accomplished family-owned moving companies in the industry.
An award-winning Mayflower Transit Agent and respected OMA partner of the south, Sorensen presented the perfect buying opportunity for The Advance Group, which is headquartered in New York. On the residential moving side of the industry, Advance’s household moving brand Molloy Moving & Storage coupled with Sorensen Moving & Storage’s capacity, expertise and quality will result in one of Mayflower Transit’s largest agents and interstate fleets in the van line.
“The synergy between the two companies excelling at residential moving, commercial moving, logistics, warehousing, technology services, FF&E and delivery + installation is going to create an absolute powerhouse from the northeast through the southeast corridor. The combined organization significantly increases resources into their shared partnership in OMA (Office Moving Alliance) and Mayflower Transit, which will further increase both brands’ national and global presence. But the most exciting thing to me, is that Sorensen’s employees are hardworking all-stars, and their company culture mirrors exactly what we have worked so hard to achieve here at TAG” said Anthony Parziale, CEO of The Advance Group
Scott Sorensen is an accomplished, well-networked CEO and will remain onboard as a consultant to the Executive Team at TAG. Chris Sorensen will remain President of the Sorensen brand with a focus on continued growth and strategic relationships.
“Having the opportunity to lead and grow the Sorensen team for the past 47 years has been one of my life’s greatest joys and accomplishments. I am extremely proud of the team we have, and the organization we have become over the years. I am also excited to have the opportunity to step away and allow the next generation of leaders to run the company. Under the guidance of Anthony Parziale, and the entire leadership team at The Advance Group and Sorensen, I know that our team is in great hands and will achieve tremendous success in the future. Finding a strategic buyer that matched our culture, values and was willing to continue to cultivate what we have built was extremely important to me. The more we explored this opportunity, the more it was apparent that The Advance Group was the perfect fit for us. I appreciate the commitment and support that I have received over many years from the Sorensen team, our customers, industry partners, and community” said Scott Sorensen, CEO of Sorensen Moving & Storage.
The collective organization is fired up about this new opportunity and The Advance Group’s plan is to continue seeking strategic acquisition. The transaction was completed on March 31, 2023. Terms of the transaction are not being disclosed.
