Removal Standards - Choose a BAR Registered Mover

Before you even get a quote for a move, you should be looking for the BAR Badge. The BAR, or British Association of Removers, are an organisation that sets the standards for the Removal and Storage Industry across the UK. By ensuring you use a BAR accredited company you’re making sure your goods will be insured, looked after and delivered on time, every time.

The British Association of Removers was formed in 1900 and represents all leading removals and storage companies throughout Great Britain. All members are inspected regularly to ensure that they meet the stringent standards requirements and follow good practice guidelines.

As a BAR member we observe the BAR Code of Practice by using approved contract conditions and liability. All the packing materials used by BAR members are recyclable. In the extremely unlikely event of an emergency you can be assured that all BAR members have a domestic emergency guarantee available to customers.


The Advanced Payment Guarantee

Every member of the BAR operate to extremely high standards. Part of becoming a BAR member involves a long checklist of items, including being financially vetted.

As is standard practice for all BAR members, payment must be taken upon booking. This may worry some people, but the APG scheme is designed to remove that issue completely.

The new BAR Advanced Payment Scheme started in 2017, where it replaced the IMMI Payment Guarantee scheme. This scheme ensures that if your removal company does suffer some financial difficulty, you’ll be refunded all of your money. You can read more about the Advanced Payment Guarantee by checking our blog article.

Late Key Waiver

We offer late-key waivers on every house to house move. This way you’re completely protected from any extra costs should there be any delays, providing you’ve paid for the late key waiver. The cost of this waiver is completely unique to your move as well. It will depend on the amount of men needed, the day, and the volume of goods and a few other things. This waiver allows our men to complete the job no matter how long the keys are delayed and you won’t have to pay an extra penny.

When moving with Purdie Worldwide you get your very own Move Co-ordinator. They are your main point of contact throughout the moving process, there to answer any questions, or alleviate any fears you might have.

For more information on late key waivers, or any other removal questions, please don’t hesitate to call us or contact us today.

Terms & Conditions & Insurance Policies

As part of the BAR, we adhere to a set of issued Terms and Conditions that are in place to protect you as the customer and us as the mover.

Where we cannot resolve any complaints using our own complaints procedure, as a BAR member we use their own Dispute Resolution Ombudsman for dispute resolution. In the unlikely event of a complaint arising and you wish to refer the complaint to them please contact 0333 241 3209, via their website.
