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