We will soon be traveling to New Orleans for the I.A.M (International Association of Movers) convention meeting and exhibition.
This is where overseas movers from around the world meet up to discuss any issues in the industry as well as learn about new products and services that are available. Its also a time where we meet other owners of international moving companies and maintain partnership agreements and relationships.
We will have representation from our USA, UK and European offices in New Orleans and will be meeting many of our worldwide partners including Australia, New Zealand, Asian and South American agents.
During these meetings we learn about customs procedures and other local cultural procedures around the world so we are fully aware and up to date when you are ready to make your move overseas. It also means if you have a question that we cannot answer about a destination, we will know someone locally who can answer on our behalf.
Having been in business and members of the International Association of Movers since 1988 we have numerous long standing relationships with partners and vendors around the world that we know personally. These are companies that represent us that we can rely on for your International Relocation. Many of them are now friends. We know their families, keep in touch on a regular basis through Facebook etc. and welcome each other to stay in their houses when they are visiting in the area. These relationships behind the scenes of International Movers are what make everything in the logistics chain of an overseas move work in harmony to produce a trouble free move and most importantly a happy customer.
Mark Nash aka The Moving Doctor also sits on the board of the International Shippers Association and the Commercial Affairs group at the IAM.
