BAR Overseas Group

What is this?

The BAR has an Overseas Group. This group of companies specialise in all aspects of overseas removals. Members must meet strict standards and are regularly inspected to make sure that their facilities, equipment, staff training and operational procedures remain at the highest level.

Every BAR Overseas Group member also subscribes to a financial bonding scheme. An Advance Payment Guarantee Scheme operated by the British Association of Removers provides protection for prepayments made by our private customers (consumers) in the unlikely circumstance of Abels ceasing to trade and fulfilling a contract which has been paid for. This used to be provided by IMMI. The protection of pre-payments and deposits is especially important for overseas moving customers who are usually required to pay the full amount in advance for international moves. For that reason all members of the BAR Overseas Group must sign up to an Advance Payment Guarantee scheme designed to protect customers in the unlikely event that the company ceases trading.

Abels Moving Services is a member of the Overseas Group and subscribes to the financial bonding scheme.
