BAR - BRITISH ASSOCIATION OF REMOVERS DOMESTIC MOVING AND STORAGE MEMBER BAR - BRITISH ASSOCIATION OF REMOVERS DOMESTIC MOVING AND STORAGE MEMBER

For over 100 years the British Association of Removers (BAR) has been the recognised voice of the professional moving and storage industry in the United Kingdom.

BAR Members range in size from small family businesses to multinational compaines, but involvement in the industry alone does not qualify a company for membership. BAR inspects and investigates all potential Members and matches them against criteria for membership that cover premises, vehicles, staff, operational procedures and insurance arrangements. BAR also has a programme of ongoing inspection during membership to ensure standards are maintained.

Through this programme and through this TSI Approved Consumer Code or Practice Scheme, BAR constantly seeks to raise the standards in the industry so Customers may receive the most efficient and trouble free move possible.
