Advanced Payment Guarantee
When you move home, it is standard practice to pay your removal company in advance. You would obviously be concerned that if your remover financially failed before your moving date, you would have lost that pre-payment. For that reason, all BAR members provide an Advanced Payment Guarantee. All BAR members are financially vetted and provide the safety net of an APG scheme (your chosen provider will provide you with details of the scheme to which they belong) and so you can have total confidence in using them for your move.
The guarantee applies to private individuals moving home to or from the United Kingdom.
The Scheme does, of course, have terms and conditions and those full terms and conditions can be downloaded.
For any customer queries under the BAR APG Scheme, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Feedback from customers of a former BAR Member
The scheme from my end has been superb, otherwise I would have been nearly £1000 out of pocket. Was really easy with Green’s completing the move without me having to pay them again and claim off you as for that. I would ensure I always use a BAR company in the future and would tell people about it when planning a move.
We are delighted that we will receive compensation for the monies paid in advance to a former BAR Member who unfortunately went in to administration.
Thank you for all your help with this matter. Other than the initial disappointment with the former BAR Member who unfortunately went in to administration we have been very happy with the smooth process of reclaiming our money.
We should like to say that we are very grateful for the excellent and timely service we have received through the APG scheme.
Thank you for such swift action on my application to the BAR Advanced Payment Guarantee Scheme. I had not expected such a turn around and will recommend friends and family ensure they book with BAR accredited removal companies in the future.
