< Go Back Call For Movers To Sign Up To Which Scheme
The British Association of Removers (BAR) has joined forces with the Which Trusted Traders scheme in a bid to promote high standards and protect consumers within the removal industry. The collaboration between the trade association and the leading UK consumer body will allow companies, which are BAR members, to sign up to the endorsement scheme known as Which Trusted Traders. This will allow these removal firms to benefit from the endorsement of these two major organisations and allow consumers to have even more confidence in the moving company they choose.
Signing up to the scheme will also allow companies to benefit from the Trusted Traders website and should make it easier for customers who are seeking safe, professional and reputable removal firms. The partnership has only just been announced but now movers are being urged to sign up for the scheme if they want to give themselves a business edge, access-free information and advice whilst also making customers feel confident in their choice of company.
The managing director of Which Trusted Traders, Stephen McCluskey, said this partnership with BAR marked a ground breaking moment for people looking for help to move house as they will in future be able to benefit from finding companies that have dual endorsement status. BAR is currently the only highly consumer-focused trade association within the removals sector, while Which has long been renowned for protecting and informing consumers.
Customers are being encouraged to use the Which Trusted Traders website to find reliable, local traders, safe in the knowledge that all companies endorsed must adhere to the schemeís code of conduct. This requires a commitment from companies to ensuring the highest standards of customer care and business operations. Meanwhile, companies are being encouraged to sign-up in order for their potential customers to find them on their site.
BARís director general, Stephen Vickers, said this new collaboration complimented BARís commitment to the promotion of consumer protection and high standards and would allow clients to have even more information to enable them to choose the right removals firm for them.
BAR membership has long-been an indicator of high standards within the removals sector, whether a person is moving abroad or simply within the UK. The trade association is influential in setting standards for firms working within the industry and also provides help for consumers who are planning a move.
Companies can find out more about becoming a Which Trusted Trader by calling 020 3582 7114 or logging onto the website at http://trustedtraders.which.co.uk/trader-join/. Membership offers companies continued business advice as well as help from Ombudsman Services Limited, which offers advice on dealing with complaints from consumers.
Even before the recent collaboration, Which recommended that all consumers chose a BAR member to help with their move in order to ensure that the mover had the relevant expertise, insurance, training, professionalism and experience. The consumer group recommend that potential clients look for the BAR badge on vehicles, marketing material and the companyís website or log onto www.bar.co.uk.
