BAR Code of Practice
The British Association of Removers Code of Practice is the only code in the moving industry that’s approved and monitored by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute.
All BAR Members must abide by the Code that dictates:
- the standards of service you will receive
- the quality of the materials used
- the standards of vehicles and warehouses
- staff training requirements
- what will happen if something goes wrong
Complaints or Disputes
Complaints made against a BAR Member are handled exclusively by The Furniture & Home Improvement Ombudsman (FHIO), a qualified, independent and approved Consumer ADR body under the Alternative Dispute Resolution for Consumer Disputes (Competent Authorities and Information) Regulations 2015.READ MORE
