BAR Advanced Payment Guarantee Scheme
When searching for removal companies in London, you’ll notice that many of them (or the good ones) are members of BAR and the Advance Payment Guarantee Scheme.
Why is this important? Continue reading …
What is the BAR APG scheme?
The BAR Advanced Payment Guarantee Scheme is offered by members of the British Association of Removers.
When you pay for a removal service, most removal companies will require the payment upfront before your move date. If the removal company is a member of BAR then the upfront payment is protected by the Advance Payment Guarantee. In the event that the removal company you have hired was to suffer financial failure before your moving date, you will be able to claim your money back under the scheme.
It is a good idea to choose a removal company who is a member of the BAR for this reason alone.
All BAR members are vetted financially by BAR and required to operate and maintain high standards. They can also offer you the Advanced Payment Guarantee.
The scheme is covered by its own set of terms and conditions which can be downloaded from the official BAR website.
Roberts and Dennys are one of the leading removal companies in the UK and are in very good financial standing. For customers who select us for their removals can be assured their belongings will be covered under the scheme, offering them peace of mind during what can already be a very stressful time.
How do I know if the moving company I am using is covered?
For your own peace of mind, it is a good idea to check if the company that you are thinking of hiring is covered by the BAR Advanced Payment Guarantee Scheme before you part with any money!
One way in which you can do this is to check if the company displays the APG (BAR Advanced Payment Guarantee) Logo on their website or other offical literature.
Only members of the scheme are allowed to display the logo, which shows they provide cover in respect of UK domestic moves.
