The independent voice of the global moving industry


Move Assured signs its 100th member

May 17, 2016
Trade organisation Move Assured has reached a milestone moment by signing its 100th member; Cambridgeshire – based Banister & Co, a family business run by John and Pippa Banister.

“Being a small independent mover with around a dozen staff, I felt we were at an awkward size to join one of the bigger widely known accreditation organisations,” said John. “It doesn’t matter what assistance you need from the team, whether it is a back load from Glasgow, porter assistance anywhere in the UK and Ireland, vans, trucks or the best deals on boxes, wraps, straps, the list is endless.” 


Move Assured was founded by removals man John Sargant just two years ago and has grown steadily by giving movers an affordable way of joining a trade organisation and offering a wide range of benefits.  

 “As a small mover myself I felt there was nothing available for companies of my size even though I knew we were as professional as the larger companies,” said John. “I was sure there was a need, so I decided it was time to start one.” 

Move Assured members pay a fee of £30 +VAT a month and there is no minimum period.  Affiliate membership is also available for suitable companies offering services to the moving industry for the same monthly fee. 

Member benefits include training courses, a listing on the Move Assured website, where the public can search for a mover in their area, a customer feedback page and a members’ area where movers can exchange messages and arrange help with porters, etc. John is also happy to give advice to members based on his 20 years’ experience in the industry. 

Membership is growing at the rate of about one per week so it looks as though Move Assured’s success is set to continue.
