BAR (British Association of Removers)

Membership number K014

Luxfords are one of fewer than 700 UK removal companies who can claim to meet the British Association of Removers (BAR) strict standards and regular inspections. Membership means that our facilities, equipment, personnel and operational procedures are continuously reviewed. For our customers it means we use Trading Standards recognised Terms and Conditions and plain English service contracts for all work carried out.

The BAR Code of Practice covers how we operate and how we work with our customers, other BAR members and BAR itself. Our membership also provides customers with free access to their Consumer Affairs department in the unlikely event of a problem arising which cannot be resolved directly with us.

We adhere to the British Association of Removers Alternative Dispute Resolution Scheme which is independently operated by:

The Furniture & Home Improvement Ombudsman
Premier House
1–5 Argyle Way
0333 241 3209

Having participated in the Government’s Train to Gain scheme, we are pleased that all our operational staff have successfully completed their NVQ Level II in Customer Care - as far as we know, we are the only domestic removal company to have achieved this.

BSI EN 12522

This standard is the first and only recognised quality standard specifically aimed at furniture removals 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.

BAR (BAR Overseas Group)

Luxfords are proud to be one of less than 100 UK members of the BAR Overseas Group. We are all regularly inspected to make sure that our facilities, equipment, staff training and operational procedures remain at the highest level and that we continue to meet strict membership criteria and standards. Each member of the BAR Overseas Group is experienced in handling part and full container load consignments worldwide and in taking care of goods coming into the UK from abroad.

More importantly, every BAR Overseas Group member uniquely offers our clients an Advance Payment Guarantee, which means that your overseas move will arrive at your destination even in the event that something happens to the company moving your belongings across the world. The Advance Payment Guarantee is a vital part of any overseas move and is only available from members of the BAR Overseas Group.
