According to Bill Bryson, moving to a new country is like being a 5-year-old again. “You are ignorant of almost everything…
"You can’t read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work, you can’t even reliably cross the street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting questions.”
Here at AGS, we take care of one of the most important questions - how to move to your new home.
With over 39 years of experience in the international moving industry and a network of 126 locations in 78 countries, AGS International Movers has the expertise to guide you through every step of your move and subsequent relocation, leaving you free to explore your undiscovered country.
You won’t be alone.
Last year, over 214 million people moved abroad for work, retirement, to experience new cultures or for economic or political reasons.
Regardless of destination, AGS provides world-class quality services. Our work methods and packing materials comply with FIDI’s FAIM quality standards, the most prestigious in the industry.
And quality is important. Moving is ranked as the third most stressful life event, following death and divorce.
That makes moving the sort of event you don't want to go badly, so hiring an expert with internationally recognised accreditation makes sense.
As a global leader in international removals, client satisfaction is key.
We constantly improve our services and customise our solutions so that our clients can move with peace of mind, removing the stress so you are free to find new avenues to explore.
Using unique packing material tailored to the type of goods being transported, AGS not only increases the safety of goods in transit but allows for improved space allocation, further reducing the cost of moving.
At AGS you can also track your moves online in real time, and trust in our nearly four decades of experience that they will get there safely.
We are reputable and reliable and, in the unlikely event of damage, we offer insurance that covers your goods completely.
Answer all your moving questions at AGS. You deserve the best.
