Why choose a BAR Member?

The British Association of Removers (BAR) is the recognised voice of the professional moving and storage industry in the UK. It’s been established for over 100 years and is dedicated to promoting professional excellence.

A badge that represents quality

BAR Membership isn’t just a pay-as-you-go scheme. Registered movers need to earn the right to display the BAR badge on their trucks, collateral or website. That’s not easy to do! In order to become a BAR Member removal companies have to pass a set criteria to meet the high standards of existing Members. There’s a stringent Code of Practice (approved by the Trading Standards Institute) to adhere to and they have to pass an extensive external audit each year.

What are the benefits of using a BAR Member?

With such high standards expected you can be sure of a thoroughly transparent and excellent level of service throughout your home or office move. There are also other benefits which add extra levels of protection:

  • The BAR Advanced Payment Guarantee When you move, within the UK or abroad, the general practice is to pay your removal company in advance. As part of their Membership criteria, all BAR Members provide the safety net of an Advanced Payment Guarantee scheme to their customers. You can read more about the scheme here.

  • Free Dispute Resolution Service In the unlikely event that there is a problem with your move, BAR use an external, independent body for dispute resolution. Complaints against a BAR Member are exclusively handled by The Furniture & Home Improvement Ombudsman (FHIO), an approved Consumer ADR body under the Alternative Dispute Resolution for Consumer Disputes (Competent Authorities and Information) Regulations 2015. Find out more here.

A top-notch service

Moving is well known to be one of life’s more stressful experiences. If you hire a firm that’s a Member of the BAR, you can have the extra confidence and peace of mind that they will be reliable and committed to best practice, working to the highest and most professional of standards. Here at Perry’s, customer satisfaction and quality service are our top priorities, so we’re proud to be a Member of the BAR.
