BAR British Association of Removers ( www.bar.co.uk )
Henry Speight Removals and Storage were established in 1891 and the standards and ethics of the BAR seemed the perfect fit to being a member.
For more than 100 years the British Association of Removers has been providing membership to suitable removal companies in the UK so that the industry has a voice and is continually improved and regulated to meet the changing needs of the consumer. More importantly, people that use our Members for removals or storage do so in the knowledge that they can expect complete transparency in all their dealings with the Member and will receive a high level of service throughout.
Advanced Payment Guarantee
When you move home, it is standard practice to pay your removal company in advance. Whilst all BAR members are financially vetted, they understand the concern that customers might feel by paying for their move in advance. Therefore, as part of the membership criteria, all BAR Members provide the safety net of an Advanced Payment Guarantee Scheme to their customers. BAR Member companies will provide you with details of the scheme to which they belong, and whether the cover provided is for moves within the UK only or on a Worldwide basis, and so it is important that you ensure your chosen mover provides the appropriate level of cover for the type of move that you are undertaking. The guarantee applies to private individuals moving home to, from or within the United Kingdom and so you can have total confidence in using a BAR Member company for your move. The Scheme does of course have terms and conditions, and those full terms and conditions can be downloaded here.

In order to protect the environment, build customer trust and meet our legal obligations we implemented the ISO 14001 environmental management system within our business.
Protecting the environment is an important business issue. Many organisations now require their suppliers to have specific environmental management plans. Implementing ISO 14001 policies enabled us to demonstrate to customers and stakeholders that our business is committed to reducing our impact on the environment.
The ISO 14001 standard provides us with an internationally recognised framework for setting up an environmental management system (EMS). Henry Speight Ltd use the Standard to reduce waste, improve resource efficiency and cut waste management costs.
ISO 14001 is the most important standard in the ISO 14000 series of environmental management standards. The International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) has developed this series for businesses and other organisations looking to reduce their environmental impact.
Quality Management Systems
ISO 9001 is the International Standard for Quality Management Systems, first published in 1987 by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), it is one of the most commonly used management tools across the world.
This Quality Standard is designed to help organisations ensure that they meet the needs of customers and other stakeholders, by having a framework in place that helps ensure consistent quality in the provision of goods and services.
This standard helps us provide a process approach and is based on 7 quality management principles, which include having a strong customer focus, the involvement of top management, and a drive for continual improvement.
