The benefits of using a BAR-certified moving company

When moving home, you want to be confident that your removal company can be trusted to meet your needs without any issues. Whether you’re about to undergo a small, local move or are shipping a large household overseas, assurance that your goods are in safe hands will be paramount.

For over 100 years, The British Association of Removers (BAR) has promoted excellence within the removals industry, awarding membership only to reputable, professional and safe British removal companies.

To be a member of BAR, a moving company must meet a range of stringent criteria and undergo regular inspections to check that their employees, processes, facilities and vehicles all meet the highest standards set out in the BAR Code of Practice.

Customers choosing to work with a BAR-certified moving company can rest assured that their move will be handled with the utmost care and attention. In the unlikely event that any issues arise, the BAR’s advice and conciliation service to help resolve the matter.

Choosing a BAR-certified removal company guarantees the best possible service, giving you peace of mind throughout your move.

Pickfords teams up with Tesco Clubcard

Tesco Clubcard on desk

Some great news this week. Pickfords has signed up with Tesco Clubcard and will now accept Tesco Rewards tokens as payment for a Pickfords removals bill.

The deal allows customers to get twice the value on their vouchers. For every £10 in Clubcard vouchers, customers will receive £20 worth of Clubcard rewards tokens to spend with Pickfords

There is no limit on voucher spend, so customers could pay for their entire removals through Clubcard if they have enough vouchers saved.

Claire Roshanzamir, Clubcard Senior Marketing Manager, Tesco, said: “Moving home can be costly so being able to make savings on removals expenses will really appeal to our customers.”

“Pickfords is our first moving home partner. We are always looking to offer customers more choice when it comes to spending their Clubcard vouchers and this is a great new addition to our 600 Reward partners.”
