Why You Should Choose A FIDI Company When Moving Internationally
Moving internationally can be a difficult and taxing undertaking. The number of choices that must be made, including whether or not to use professional movers, can seem endless. Ideally, professional movers should offer services that make moving a stress-free experience. However, with so many moving companies existing at the moment, there are a plethora of options, making it hard to choose the best international relocation services.
For that reason, organizations like FIDI and certifications like FAIM exist to make sure that the moving process is of the highest quality and that the members within the organization abide by a high level of professionalism.
What is FIDI?
Regardless of whether you are an expat moving from one country to another or the professional that needs to make sure everything runs smoothly, you need to rely on the best partners in the business.
With members in more than 100 nations, FIDI is the largest global association of international moving companies that provide relocation support services. All FIDI member businesses share a high standard of service quality, and they can all vouch for it. The most rigorous and comprehensive quality standard for the international moving and relocation sector, the FAIM Quality badge is required for all FIDI members and is regularly evaluated by an independent third party, EY. You can confidently choose the best moving partner if a company has the FAIM seal.
The organization gives members a payments protection plan that enables them to safeguard up to 90% of the value of their invoices, organises regular conferences, conducts training sessions for members from all over the world, and holds these events regularly. Additionally, FIDI has positioned itself to keep its affiliates informed of the most recent business developments and has an industry panel that provides professional advice and resolves member disputes.
What is FAIM?
As mentioned briefly above, the FIDI Accredited International Mover (FAIM) Quality Management Programme is a component of the FIDI offering, a quality certification for the moving industry that was created through consultation and the best practices of the best large, small, private, and public international moving companies from around the world.
Every three years, an independent audit is conducted as part of the FIDI-FAIM certification program, which mandates that international movers have a periodic independent examination of their intercontinental moving activities.
This guarantees that FIDI businesses manage and carry out international moving services in a uniform, quality-conscious, and efficient manner in accordance with a global common standard. Additionally, it offers a transparent system that guarantees the standards stay high.
From the perspective of the end user, a FAIM-accredited company gives the mover and the HR department organizing his relocation confidence that the company understands the industry and has the tools and expertise to complete the job correctly.
Why Should You Use A FIDI Company?
In summary, when things go wrong during an international transfer, they not only add stress and worry to the situation but also cost time and money to resolve. Utilizing a FIDI-FAIM-approved removal business has as its primary goal the elimination or reduction of risk to give you peace of mind that everything is in good hands.
To fully answer the question, you need to take into account everything that could possibly go wrong with your move.
For example, did you know that while a cargo ship is on the ocean, it can move up to seven different directions and that the amount of movement can vary substantially, particularly in stormy waters? In addition, there are many more personnel involved in an international move than in a local one: packers, drivers, port authority workers who load and unload containers on ships, customs inspectors, and finally a different driver and unpacking crew who return your possessions to you. In comparison to local house relocation, it entails a lot more “handling” and handoff locations, and this needs to be properly controlled. For everything to go smoothly and for your items to avoid being held in customs, which would result in more fees and additional time spent without your possessions, you must also ensure that all necessary permissions and documents are in order.
