BAR Quality Standards

Many BAR members have elected to adopt the increasingly widely known European Standard for removals – BS EN 12522 and the sister standard covering storage – BS EN 14873.

Domestic Moving Standards

These standards are the first and only recognised quality standards specifically aimed at furniture removals and storage for the benefit of the private individual. Certified companies operate to clearly defined standards and the procedures are designed to benefit you, the customer, at every stage of your move.

To maintain BAR Members’ commitment to achieving and raising the highest standards within the removals and storage industry, BAR organise a prestigious annual event to find the best Removals Company in the Domestic Removals category – the Domestic Mover of the Year competition (DMoTY).

Commercial Moving Standards

For commercial moves, all BAR Commercial Moving Group members adhere to the Commercial moving standard BS 8522:
