British Association of Removers

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. Currently, it has 470 Members in the UK working out of 652 branch locations. Its Members carry out some 400,000 moves within the UK and worldwide each year.

BAR Members range in size from small family businesses to multinational companies, 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 The Trading Standards Institute Approved Code of Practice, the BAR constantly seeks to raise standards in the industry so customers may receive the most efficient and trouble free move possible.

We adhere to the British Association of Removers Alternative Dispute Resolution Scheme which is independently operated by; The Furniture Ombudsman.

This Code applies to all furniture removal activities for UK consumers dealing with a UK-based BAR Member

BAR and its Members recognise that moving home is a stressful experience and the purpose of this Code is to ensure that Members trade in a fair and reasonable manner. In the event that this does not happen, the Code sets out in-company procedures that should enable complaints to be resolved. If this fails, then BAR as Code Sponsor provides a conciliation service aimed at resolving problems quickly and fairly. Should this fail, a low-cost arbitration scheme operated by IDRS Ltd, a subsidiary of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators is available.

There is a range of disciplinary processes and sanctions built into the Code including expulsion for persistent or serious failure to comply with the Code.

Only bona fide Members of BAR may legally use the BAR logo on vehicles, signage, websites, letterheads and promotional or packaging material.

Compliance with this Code is mandatory upon BAR Members who are also required to advertise their adherence to this Code.

You may always contact BAR Head Office on 01923 699480 to check that the company is a Member or you can visit the BAR website at

No Code of this kind can lay down detailed rules of behaviour to cover every occasion. The Code’s effectiveness is dependent on the observance of its provisions in the spirit as well as the letter. Compliance with this Code by Members of BAR is a powerful factor in maintaining and raising standards in the professional removal industry.
