Advanced Payment Guarantee
When you move, whether it’s in the UK or to another country it’s standard practice to pay your removal company in advance. If your mover is a Member of BAR and you’re a private individual, you can be assured that your pre-payment is fully protected by an Advanced Payment Guarantee (APG) scheme.
This means that, in the unlikely event that something goes wrong at any point in the move, you are fully covered. So, when considering other quotations and before committing to any pre-payments, it is worth remembering that every BAR Member is strictly financially vetted and you have the safety net of the APG scheme, so you can have total confidence in using them for your move.
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.
