Australian Furniture Removals Association (AFRA) is an official body of removals experts that helps regulate the Australian removals industry. AFRA is consulted by Government departments before they make decisions about the industry.
Who are members of AFRA?
At present there are more than 150 Furniture Removal and associated companies that are members of AFRA. These range in size from small one truck owner operated companies to large multi-national companies with many branches both in Australia and overseas. The Australian Furniture Removals Association members cover virtually every region of Australia.
How do companies become members of AFRA?
The application process to become a member of this Association is comprehensive and aims to accept only quality removalists who agree to abide by the AFRA Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct sets out certain minimum standards expected of members so that clients may, with confidence, place their work with a member. The minimum standards described include company premises, staff, training, dealing with the client, vehicles and equipment, quality procedures and disputes.
Members of the Australian Furniture Removals Association meet regularly with other members in their state and in addition to this each state nominates 2 members to the National Council which meets monthly. The National Council is responsible to the membership in general in ensuring the smooth, efficient and economical delivery of membership services to AFRA members. This includes the development of policies, philosophies, business ideas and strategic development plans.
