BAR - TSI - Code of Conduct

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.

BAR Membership - Ingram's RemoversBAR 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. Full details of the BAR TSI Code of Practice (July 2022) can be downloaded. Below we will describe how this code benefits you, the customer.

This Code applies to all furniture removal activities for UK consumers dealing with a UK based BAR Member.
