King & Wilson's systems and services are constantly being improved and benchmarked against world’s best practice through our membership of the following national and international industry associations, in which our company directors play an active role. King & Wilson is affiliated with the following international moving associations, each of which provides valuable information and resources to enable us to continually improve and benchmark our international moving services.
FIDI - Global Alliance
FIDI is the most prestigious moving association in the world. FIDI membership is governed by the FAIM quality assurance programme, which is the only recognised quality accreditation for the moving industry. FAIM quality compliance is audited every two years by Ernst & Young in Brussels.
Only a select few companies in the international moving field have achieved FAIM accreditation, and King & Wilson is proud to be one of them.
Wherever possible, King & Wilson work exclusively with FIDI partners who have demonstrated the quality of their services via the FAIM programme.
AFRA - Australian Furniture Removers Association
AFRA is the national industry body of the furniture removals industry, responsible for setting professional standards and providing customer dispute resolution facilitation, which is binding upon the member company and recognised by the Department of Fair Trading.
King & Wilson is a founding member of AFRA and company representatives regularly attend AFRA state and national meetings.
A.I.M.A - Australian International Movers Association
AIMA is the Australian national association for international movers, providing a self-governing mechanism for the industry, working with Government Departments such as Customs and Quarantine, and providing an independent dispute tribunal to protect the interests of the public.
Membership of AIMA is restricted to those companies which are affiliates of FIDI or else have satisfied the strict AIMA membership criteria which includes a requirement for independently certified proof of financial integrity.
