British Association of Removers

The British Association of Removers is the association that gathers all house removal companies and removers in general so if you want to hire the services of a removal firm, be sure they are registered and approved by B.A.R.

The British Association of Removers, better known by its acronym (BAR) is the group that gathers and support house removal companies around the UK. BAR is dedicated to promoting professional excellence in the removals industry.

“BAR is the recognised voice of the professional moving industry. It is at the forefront of developing and
maintaining professional standards and services for the benefit of its members and their customers.”

The British Association of Removers established a Code of Practice under all their members need to stick and follow in order to be approved, and to ensure it is a well honored house removal firm.

“All BAR members abide by the Code that dictates the standard of service you will receive, the quality of the materials used, the standards of vehicles
and warehouses, staff training requirements and what will happen if something goes wrong. Most importantly the Code requires BAR moving companies to deal
with you in a courteous and sympathetic way at all times.”

Every home removers, member of the British Association of Removers, needs to follow these commitments;

  1. To make sure that their advertising and promotional literature is clear and not misleading.
  2. To provide you with a clear description, price and timetable for the work carried out.
  3. To offer insurance or other protection options.
  4. To explain clearly their liability for loss or damage, the time limit for making claims, and cancellation/postponement rights and charges.
  5. To provide staff who are courteous, competent, and committed to providing a high standard of service.
  6. To deal quickly and sympathetically with things that go wrong.
  7. To publicise this Code, have copies
    freely available and make sure the staff are trained to put it
    into practice.

“The Association provides advice and support should you experience a problem that you have been unable to resolve with your BAR remover. In the first
instance, you may call upon our free conciliation service which in most cases achieves a mutually acceptable settlement. All our members based in the UK
comply with the BAR Code of Practice and our assessment of any problem will reflect the Code’s principles.”
