How Does a Global Moving Network Help with International Relocations?

Relocating overseas is incredibly exciting. But packing and shipping your belongings is often a frustrating part of the process.

If you’ve been scouring forums, Facebook groups and relocation guides, you already know how complex international relocations can be. 

It doesn’t need to be. 

The right Perth removalist will simplify your big move by working with international partners in a trusted global moving network. 

What is a global moving network?

A global moving network is an organisation of moving companies that spans international borders. 

  • Moving associations are national or international organisations comprising independent moving companies
  • Moving federations are global bodies comprising moving associations

Entry to international removals associations is not easy. Any mover who wants to join or earn accreditation must meet strict entry requirements and uphold the association’s values and standards.

When it comes time to make your move, look for a removal company in Perth whose network exclusively includes companies accredited by the leading global associations.


With around 350 accredited members nationwide, the Australian Furniture Remover Association (AFRA) is the peak representative body for Australian removalists.

AFRA accreditation means the removalist has the equipment, vehicles, premises and training to complete a safe, professional move. 


Representing more than 2,000 companies in 170 countries, the International Association of Movers (IAM) is the largest global moving network. IAM members follow a strict code of ethics based on professional strength, diversity, ethics, reliability, trust and accountability.


The FIDI Global Alliance, a federation of accredited moving associations, represents the gold standard for international relocations. 

All FIDI-affiliated movers must meet FAIM Quality Standards. FAIM certification, the highest quality assurance for the international relocation industry, is independently audited and globally respected.


KEYS The Moving Solution are proud founding partners of the Australian Movers Group (AMG). Made up of the leading independent removalists in Australia, the AMG represents a commitment to delivering quality removals and storage solutions nationwide.
