This is the main UK association for removal companies. Most of the large companies such as Bishops Move, Britannia and Pickfords are members. As with most associations they offer an industry voice and try to make sure their members uphold certain standards within the industry, especially with regards to customer service. They also offer their members training via a partner company called The Movers Institute.
The main benefit is that they already show a commitment to their work by being the member of a trade organisation. With regards to BAR, they must also have an independent check as all members must have been accredited with a BS EN 12522 quality standard.
- Code of practice
- Free conciliation service
- Give you emergency insurance benefit
You can contact them about general queries, or to find a local BAR member. They are not a large organisation, so if you can it would be best to use their website to find information. The website gives you 'Your useful Guide to a successful Move' which can be downloaded or emailed to you.
