ARPF Membership

Introduction to Membership

The Association of Relocation Property Finders was formed in 2015 in response to the need for a Professional body to represent the growing Property Finders Industry in the UK.

Since then, the Association has continued to represent and advocate the interests of property finders across the country.

The Association is a non-profit making company, run by a council elected from the membership body.  This structure allows us to not only represent the diverse sectors of our industry but also to evolve in line with the interests of our members.

Consisting of representatives from all sectors of the industry, the council steer the work of the Association from the ground up, thereby ensuring that the Association remains at the focus of changes in relocation.

We require all ARPF members to carry full Professional Indemnity, Public and Employers Liability Insurances to protect clients and providers.

ARPF membership is proof of a commitment  to best practice, customer satisfaction and professionalism.  It also provides a forum for the exchange of ideas which helps to keep the industry dynamic.

Benefits of Membership

Being a part of a professional body is essential if we want to promote the idea of quality to our prospective clients.  The ARPF is the professional body for property finders throughout the UK and promotes a quality standard throughout its membership.  

Through extensive, externally accredited training programmes, professional vetting, arbitration and disciplinary processes, the clients of ARP members know that they are getting a service that is reaching the highest levels over 30 years of steering the profession.  But this is not the only benefit of being part of the professional relocation body for the UK.   

  • We communicate with members and non-members alike electronically sending bulletins and updates on a regular basis.
  • We have also increased the visibility of our members, through our new interactive, dynamic web systems. The ARPF website includes full information relating to the Association and lists our members contact details including links to their  websites.  
  • The ARPF’s training programme is the broadest of any relocation programme in the world and the majority of it is FREE to Members.  (Non-members are able to purchase training) 
  • The ARPF runs regular and successful networking events such as the Christmas Lunch and Awards Dinner
  • We offer direct support to start-up companies through the office and via our free business helpline.  The business helpline is also used frequently by established members, who can rely on accurate legal, employment and dispute management advice.  

The ARP is an essential organisation for the promotion of relocation services, but we go further; offering an invaluable platform for the customers of relocation companies and their clients, to make themselves known, grow their business and be part of the professional body.  From furniture rental and household goods movers, to tax and immigration specialists through to serviced apartment providers, our membership programmes offers a direct link to the relocation industry and beyond.
