AIM Workshop


GDPR – One Year On

It has now been a year since the General Data Protection Regulations came into force and the impact has been negligible. As far as we at AIM are aware, the GDPR has caused no significant problems for movers in the UK.

If you are not sure that you are compliant with the regulations, you can check on the Information Commissioner’s Office website. Check GDPR Compliance.


AIM Workshop – Costing & Pricing

AIM will be providing a workshop to discuss and tackle the issue of under-pricing and the ever decreasing profitability of removals services.

The Workshop will help movers to understand the true cost of each removal job and will thereby give them better insight into pricing for a healthy profit margin.

The venue and date are yet to be confirmed, but you can express an interest in attending the event by emailing [email protected] .

The Workshop is available to members and non-members, as this is an issue that impacts the whole industry.


What’s New at AIM?

As part of AIM’s continued efforts to support members, we have implemented a few strategies to further increase the value of membership.

We are now actively seeking tender opportunities around the country and passing the information to AIM members in the relevant areas.

We have made several changes to our SEO strategy for the AIM website, so we can drive traffic to targeted areas in the UK and the profile pages of members in their area.

The AIM website is gradually being changed to attract more visits from potential customers, which will then be directed to member profile pages. Each member will be contacted directly with tips on how they can make better use of their profile page and the review system.

Reminder:  AIM member Relocate London (Global) Ltd is always looking for other members that are interested in working with them on large National contracts. Please email [email protected]

COVID-19 Statement

Although there is no rule to prevent them from doing so, not all removals businesses are working during the Coronavirus measures advised by the Government.

Those that are working have been provided with clear guidelines by the Government and supported by AIM, with safe working procedures, specific documents and frequent information updates.

Removals firms

Removal firms are able to operate and should follow the latest government guidance on safer working. Where moves are carried out, social distancing should be followed.
Companies should ensure employees understand how to operate safely and communicate this to customers.

  • Removers should contact the household in advance to check that no member of the household is showing symptoms of coronavirus or self-isolating. If they are, works should be delayed.
  • They should also encourage households to ensure all internal doors are open and surfaces and possessions have been cleaned with household cleaning products prior to them entering the property.
  • No work should be carried out by a person who has coronavirus symptoms, however mild.
  • Removers should wash their hands on entering the property using separate towels of paper towels which need to be washed or disposed of safely after use.
  • Removers should seek to minimise contact with homeowners and remain 2 metres apart from householders at all times.
  • Removers should implement a buddy system and ensure that the same people work together when moving bulky items and furniture.
  • Removers should bring their own refreshments but you should ensure they have access to hand washing facilities, using separate towels or paper towels if possible,
    which should be washed or disposed of safely afterwards.
