BAR launches restructured APG scheme

Dec 05, 2017

The British Association of Removers (BAR) has introduced a newly structured Association-wide Advanced Payment Guarantee scheme (APG).   

BAR believes the move will give customers added protection, peace of mind and security when using the services of a BAR member by reimbursing them in the event of their removal company going bust before the job is completed.  

BAR President Tony Tickner said, “There is a continuous need for us to implement new initiatives to ensure that BAR members are seen as the preferred service providers for the consumer when compared with non-BAR members and other trade bodies linked to this industry. I am delighted that the BAR, with the support of its members, can now deliver in my view one of the biggest new benefits to its members seen for many years. The new APG scheme not only achieves this further separation when compared with non-members, it also allows us to be fully compliant with the requirements of the CTSI (Chartered Trading Standards Institute) Code of Practice.”   

Tony continued, “In these days of enhanced consumer protections, only a BAR member can now guarantee its customer true financial protection via its national trade association. In the same way that most of us will only buy a holiday from a company offering an ATOL or IATA protection. Great work BAR, and thank you to the working group that have spent the last two years putting this new benefit together for our members and our Association.”   

The new Association APG scheme came in to force as of 1 July, 2017 and replaces all previous schemes.
