Event of the Year

Event of the Year

The Movers & Storers Show is the event of the year for independent movers and storers. There is no requirement to be a member of any trade association, there is no obligation to buy anything and it’s free to attend, (if you order tickets in advance).

This year, the show will be held at Bruntingthorpe Aerodrome in Leicestershire on 1st and 2nd of November.

AIM officially launched at the 2013 Movers & Storers Show and has exhibited every year since. This year will be no exception and we hope to see you at our stand, where you can enter our competition, (details to be announced).

The Movers & Storers Show also donates to charity and has a great idea to raise money this year. This is best explained by the organizers;

“As we come close to The Movers & Storers Show in Bruntingthorpe our attention turns to some of the detail that goes to make this the biggest UK removal and self-store event in Britain. As you may know we always select a charity to support in whatever manner we can. 2016 is no exception, so we have decided to support the excellent services of the Royal British Legion – Poppy Appeal.

With the full support of Malcolm Pearson and the guys at Reason Global last year we raised an impressive £3,291 for the worthy cause of the Macmillan Nurses and we’re hoping to better that figure at this year’s show.

So this year we are starting the process off with what we hope is a good suggestion to help the charity.  We want you to talk to your favourite suppliers and suggest they exhibit at the show.

For each new exhibitor booking we receive via your recommendation we will donate £100. For the exhibitor we will guarantee a 25% reduction off the published stand prices. Oh, and to make sure we don’t leave you out, we will list your business as a contributor to the fund’s raised!

Let’s all do something good for this very worthy charity so start finding those new exhibitors for this year’s show on Tuesday 1 & Wednesday 2 November at Hangar 42, Bruntingthorpe – see you there.”

Workplace Pensions – a reminder

As everyone is now aware, all employers will have to provide Workplace Pensions by 2018. However, this does not mean everyone can put it off until then.

The Staging Date is the date at which your enrolment duties come into effect.

You can check when that date is here. For more information on Workplace Pensions, visit www.gov.uk/workplace-pensions-employers.

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.
