MOVING HOME IS STILL PERMISSIBLE - The British Association of Removers has emailed us to advise an update following the Prime Minister's announcement, as follows: BAR Update. 04 January 2021. Dear Member, Latest Covid-19 Restrictions Update. Further to the PM’s announcement of the new Tier 5 restrictions in England, it is confirmed that moving home is still permissible. The newly published guidelines state that: People outside your household or support bubble should not help with moving house unless absolutely necessary. Estate and letting agents and removals firms can continue to work. If you are looking to move, you can go to property viewings. Follow the national guidance on moving home safely, which includes advice on social distancing, letting fresh air in, and wearing a face covering.

The British Association of Removers | 20th March 2020 | APG Announcement | "Dear Member, The spread of the Coronavirus pandemic is unprecedented in modern times and its impact on all industries has been sudden and extremely damaging, including that of UK removals. It is against this background that the BAR finds itself having to suspend its Advanced Payment Guarantee Scheme with effect from 20/03/2020. Existing claims against the scheme will of course be fulfilled, but no new claims will be considered from that date. The BAR regrets the necessity to take this course of action and will continue to review the situation over the coming months. BAR Members are respectfully requested to append this notice to all quotations issued, and contracts made, for their respective customers, and that your sales staff are instructed accordingly. We would also advise that this notice is appended to your website and/or any other client facing portals or material that you may use.
