Protecting your personal effects
The strength of AGS is its staff, many of whom have spent their entire working careers with the company. Training plays an important role in the Group across all job portfolios, empowering teams and individuals alike to advance their careers internally.
Our packing teams are trained to take all reasonable precautions to prevent unauthorised access to the work site. Every effort is made to protect the removal site, products, materials, work and any buildings from damage or theft.
AGS PACKING MATERIAL
It is simple – better packing means less breakage; AGS packers are trained in specific techniques to ensure all your items arrive in pristine condition. Over the years, AGS has developed its own packing material which is better suited to our clients’ personal items; special boxes for halogen lamps, bicycles and the First Necessity box, are some of the unique items we have created. For fragile high value items, AGS’ crating services will arrange custom made wooden crates constructed to protect your most precious belongings.
The AGS vehicle fleet is an excellent example of investment made to improve not only cargo security, but also the safety of our drivers and other motorists on the road. Our trucks are equipped with:
- Emergency braking assistance, releasing the braking capacity to its full power in case of unexpected obstacles.
- Anti-backward rolling, particularly useful in an ascent, allowing the blocking of any recoil within half a second.
- Voight speed reducer, to complement standard brakes and efficiently slow down the vehicle in long and abrupt descents.
- Radar anti-collision system, which alerts the driver of an obstacle in their path.
- Air suspension control system, which improves the truck’s balance on corners.
- Target assistance to help the driver remain in the optimum line of driving. With signs of drowsiness, an alarm starts so the driver remains alert.
- A computerised gear box which makes gear changing smoother and diminishes shocks better securing cargo.
The Liftvan, another AGS innovation, is a metal re-usable container and its unique size (10m3) offers several advantages. Best of all, the Liftvan is not shared with any other clients or consignments but is rather your own personal container. Its smaller size makes it easier to transport on a wider variety of trucks and it eliminates unnecessary handling of your sealed personal effects.
Protecting your Information
AGS understands how important it is to protect our clients’ personal data. At AGS, procedures have been adopted and implemented to regulate how information is received, documented and disseminated both within the company and to third party suppliers that are required to complete successful move operations on our behalf. Regular internal and third party security audits are performed to identify any potential issues and ensure that the company remains compliant in its data confidentiality, integrity and flow procedures.
YOUR PERSONAL SECURE PORTAL
Access to your personalised portal is completely secure. AGS encrypts all data displayed on your personalised portal and your pages can only be accessed through the use of a unique log in that are sent to you via email.
We process your personal information in our management system with the same strictness. For instance, once your personal effects have been packed, information regarding your inventory is only accessed and used at the point of customs clearance.
AGS is customer-oriented and recognises the importance of having a well-trained team.
AGS employees learn good workplace practices to ensure a safe working environment. Our staff are trained on effective safety procedures and are skilled in maintaining the best quality standards to ensure their own safety.
