Membership Levels

AIM Membership Levels

All AIM Members are required to meet specific criteria and work to Code of Practice that promotes high standards and consumer protection. The membership levels reflect the size of the removals business and the services they are able to offer.

There are four levels, Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.

Bronze

Bronze Members work to the AIM Code of Practice, use AIM approved Terms & Conditions and participate in the dispute resolution service provided by The Furniture Ombudsman. This is the basic entry level for smaller movers or younger businesses that are in the early stages of growth.

 

Silver

Silver Members are usually larger businesses that also work to the AIM CoP, use AIM approved T’s & C’s and participate in the dispute resolution service provided by The Furniture Ombudsman. They will employ more staff and have a record of staff training. Most Silver Members will use larger vehicles that require them to hold an Operator’s Licence.

 

Gold

Gold Members are as Silver, but with a dedicated office, their own warehouse (if they office storage) and BS EN 12522 or equivalent. Gold Members will usually have a fleet that includes several larger vehicles, so they can carry out larger jobs and commercial work.

 

Platinum

Platinum Members are as Gold, with the addition of BSEN/ ISO 9001 and ISO 1401 or FIDI accredited. Platinum Members must also have an in-house Transport Manager and an international operator licence.

Platinum Members can carry out jobs of any size including national and international commercial work.
