Our Removals Credentials
British Association of Removers (BAR) Membership
The Furniture Warehouseman & Removers Association Ltd was formed in 1900 with the aim of
regulating and fighting for the interests of removals and storage businesses and their customers. Now known as the British Association of Removers (BAR), it has grown to become the recognised body for professional moving in the UK.
The BAR investigates all current and potential members against a criteria that covers a number of sectors including vehicles, staff, procedures, insurance and premises. A removal company does not automatically earn membership to the BAR as it has to adhere to these criteria to gain membership and then continue to ensure standards are maintained in order to continue as a BAR member.
Moving with a BAR member provides benefit for the customer also through the TSI Approved Consumer Code or Practice scheme. This ensures that customers receive the most efficient removal possible and should anything go wrong then customers can turn to the BAR. So as the BAR says, “if you’re moving – look for the badge”.
