BAR Moving Company Training

Training is essential to the growth of most any company and its employees. Through training staff acquire new skills, build self-esteem and can progress within the company. Additionally, training also increases staff contribution to the company and, through better working practices, can both increase sales and reduce costs.

BAR Training Services, the training division of the British Association of Removers (BAR), is the leading provider of training and learning solutions for the removals industry and removals related businesses. It offers training to BAR members and non-Members alike, though only Members can benefit from discounted training. Find out about membership.

Depending on the course, training takes place at our BAR HQ offices in Watford, at our Approved Training Centres or, for select courses it can be delivered at the mover’s premises.

“Hi Stephen,
Just a quick email to say how brilliant our training day was with Nick Saker. All the guys gave very positive feedback, really enjoyed the day and learnt a lot. Nick was brilliant and we will definitely be using you guys again.”
