AGS worldwide network of 126 branches is one of the largest in the removals industry. Their experience and know-how in key areas such as logistics and customs clearance, combined with storage facilities in Canada, allows them to adapt to the needs and requests of customers in good time, while maintaining high service standards.
AGS provides storage for household goods in secure warehouse facilities. Their warehouses are protected by modern surveillance cameras or a 24-hour guarding service in more remote destinations, where modern tools are unavailable.
Their quality criteria for storage are:
- Safe locking systems
- Modern alarm systems or a 24/7 guarding service
- Regular treatment against humidity, rats and other pests
- Regularly inspected fireproofing system
Packing for Storage
Their unique and high standard packing policy will also be applied to storage in Canada.
In addition to items being packed into appropriate cartons, furniture is export wrapped protected and crated if needed prior to being loaded for short or long-term storage. This maximises the protection of stored furniture and simplifies matters when a stored consignment needs to be shipped at short notice or if there is a change of plan.
They use the same high quality packing material that is used for a normal move. The AGS Group has created new packing material more adapted to today’s personal effects. For instance, they use small cartons for CDs and DVDs to further protect those items and to better fit within our standard cartons. A packing list is completed and each box identified and marked before it is loaded into a storage container.
All storage containers are clearly identified and listed on a Master Storage File which makes identifying and retrieving the total consignment or one particular item extremely simple. This system minimises handling which in turn minimises the risk of damage or loss as they only need to retrieve and unpack one storage container to locate one item.

The standards applied at all the branches are in accordance with the requirements of ISO 9001:2008 (a Group-wide certification) and the quality standards, unique to our industry, such as NF Storage, NF Move and FAIM (FIDI-Accredited International Movers.
