AFRA Fleet of the year award winner 2015
This Year the Australian Furniture Removals Association; otherwise known as A.F.R.A held their 23rd Annual Conference Thursday 20th August to Saturday 22nd August 2015.
AFRA is the official body of removals experts that helps regulate the removals industry. AFRA is consulted by Government departments before they make decisions about the industry and only accredits the furniture removalists that have all necessary equipment, vehicles, premises and staff training needed to complete a professional move. As an AFRA member every furniture removals company has a set of minimum standards to meet in all aspects of their business. At present there are approximately 350 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 AFRA membership covers virtually every region of Australia and New Zealand.
The National Fleet of the Year award is assessed on the basis of those companies meeting and exceeding those standards as far as, not only fleet appearance and representing AFRA on the road, but also safety records, team training, reduced insurance claims, fleet maintenance records, reliability and risk management procedures employed.
