Directors Appointed to New Association

The transition of the Alliance of Independent Movers to the Association of Independent Movers is continuing as planned. The Association has appointed two more Directors to the Board and has begun preparations for the transition, later this year.

When the transition is complete, AIM will become a registered not-for-profit and will be owned and controlled by the members.

If you are interested in joining AIM and getting involved, please contact Scott Rust on 0208 892 0369.

EMS Removals Ltd becomes AIM Affiliate

We are pleased to welcome EMS Removals to AIM Affiliate membership.

EMS Removals is a new division of EMS Cargo and was created in response to a growing demand for their shipping and destination services, from UK removals companies.

The removals division is headed by Annette Harris, who has over 30 years’ experience of international removals.

EMS is not a removals company, so it doesn’t compete for international moves. However, it does offer a nationwide collection service for international cargo.

In an interview for The Mover, Annette said, “I think what we’re doing is unusual, if not unique. I know from previous experience that some removal companies are reluctant to give forwarding work to firms that may be competing with them for the move, so the fact that EMS does not offer a removals service will appeal to a lot of companies.”

Because Annette has such a strong removals background, she understands the needs of removals companies. This means EMS Removals can provide a quality service for UK movers, without the associated problems that they may encounter elsewhere.

For many small removals businesses, this opens up new opportunities. No small remover will ever need to turn away international moves again.

Bedroom up Ben Nevis

Last month, six removals men from two companies successfully carried a bed, a chest of drawers, two bedside tables and a lamp to the top of Ben Nevis, for charity.


The jobsheet said; Good access, but a bit of a walk. Some re-assembly required.

The story on the Just Giving page reads:

After last years successful journey up Scafell Pike with a sofa Barleycorn Removals decided one better and take a complete bedroom set to the top of Britain’s highest mountain. Last year’s challenge was gruelling and we expect this year to be even tougher. That is why we have enlisted the help of our friends at Caversham Moves to assist with the heavy items. Last year we raised over £1300 for Footsteps Foundation. This year we hope to raise even more.

The donation page is still open, so if you feel like making a contribution…

Barleycorn Removals (Wallingford) and Caversham Moves (Reading) are not members of AIM but we felt their efforts were worth mentioning in our newsletter.
