Advanced Payment Guarantee – BAR (British Association of Removers)
When you move home, it is standard practice to pay your removal company in advance. You would obviously be concerned therefore that if your chosen remover suffered financial failure before your moving date, you would have lost any payment made and so for that reason, BAR members provide an Advanced Payment Guarantee to their customers (Click here for BAR APG page). All BAR members are financially vetted and provide the safety net of an APG scheme. Click here for further details.
