AIM members' meet at Twickenham

Jul 08, 2015
Members of the Alliance of Independent Movers (AIM) met at the organisation’s headquarters in Twickenham on 12 May to discuss the group’s progress during its first 18 months of operation and its plans for development.
AIM’s founder Scott Rust chaired the meeting and began by announcing the launch of a new App, ‘Assist I’m Moving’, which will shortly be available free for both iOS and Android devices from the usual sources. The app provides people moving house with hints and advice about moving, along with a countdown to moving day to help them make timely preparations for their move, including booking a removals company. Customers will be able to request a quote via the App with the lead being given to the nearest AIM member. AIM director Vince Roberts pointed out that around 50% of Internet searches are now made using mobile devices and that the App should prove to be an important marketing and lead generation tool for AIM members.

Other subjects under discussion included a new Google AdWords campaign and the launch of a training service delivered by former Abels trainer Nick Saker. Courses will be available on a variety of subjects including manual handling, packing, health & safety and basic skills for new operatives.  The training is open to all removals companies at competitive rates, with special discounts for AIM members.

AIM’s membership now stands at 30 and is rapidly gathering pace. The Alliance was created to assist removers of all sizes to grow and expand their businesses and offers a wide range of benefits to its members.
