Removals industry trade bodies and accreditations
The main trade association for the removals industry covering both home and office removals is the British Association of Removers (BAR) which has been in existence for over 100 years. Although membership of BAR is voluntary and subject to meeting certain criteria, the majority of large removal companies in London choose to be members due to the range of benefits membership provides both to themselves and to their customers.
Removal firms who are members of BAR must agree to adhere to a code of practice that has been approved by the Trading Standards Institute. Membership of BAR also provides moving companies with automatic membership of The Property Ombudsman Scheme (TPO) which is a government approved independent dispute resolution service that can be used to resolve disputes between removers and their customers.
In addition to BAR membership some removers may also have a number of other accreditations or be members of related associations such as the Road Haulage Association (RHA) which is the main trade body for the road transport sector in general.
