Quality of service is a distinguishing factor when comparing packers and movers. It separates the standard relocation companies from the superior companies. And the quality of service becomes important when international relocation is the service offered.
Being in the relocation business for over two decades now, I know that we don’t just move goods, we move individuals and families; at a time when they are experiencing big changes in their lives. During the move, if something goes wrong it takes a heavy toll on their emotional well-being. Quality of service is not by accident but by design and to sustain a consistent level of service, one must follow international standards. In this article, I want to tell you about FIDI, the international alliance of movers that lays down standards and certifies moving companies around the globe.
Representing 600 moving companies in over 100 countries, FIDI (The Federation of International Movers) is the largest global alliance of international relocation companies, which outlines the industry standards for moving services. They have pioneered FAIM (FIDI Accredited International Mover), an all-encompassing certification program mandatory for its members. The commonality for all FIDI members is that they offer high-quality moving services and the FAIM Quality label is proof of it, being the most stringent quality standard in the relocation industry.

Choosing a FIDI accredited mover is to your advantage as evidenced by the following guidelines that are strictly implemented:
All FIDI affiliates comply with a mandatory Anti-Corruption and Anti-Trust Charter. When you book them for a move, the pricing is straightforward and accurate with no hidden costs whatsoever. They precisely assess your cargo and recommend the ideal weight band that suits your budget, what to carry and stuff you can store in their storage facilities. This way costs are kept to a minimum throughout the relocation process.
The FAIM certification is one of the most rigorous standards in the industry with more than 200 quality checks in each operational area from survey, packing, document clearance, storage, insurance coverage and customer service. Highly experienced certified movers apply consistent and fail-proof processes that leave no scope for expensive mistakes and guarantee top-notch services, beginning to end. You can rest assured that you have found the best partner when you sign up a moving company with the FAIM quality seal.
Peace of Mind
FAIM-accredited moving companies are regularly audited for their operational procedures by an independent third-party to continue affiliation. On-site visits are conducted to ensure the facilities meet all safety standards. Such rigorous checks ensure FIDI network companies adhere to an international benchmark for delivering moving services in a steady quality-minded way.
From an end-customer’s point of view, a FAIM certified company gives confidence that the moving company is acquainted with all nuances related to moving, along with the resources and know-how to execute the move with precision.
I hope you found this article informative and helpful to consider a FIDI affiliate mover for your next move.
