The BS 8522 is the only British standard specific to commercial moving and is regulated by the British Association of Removers (BAR), to represent the UK’s leading professional removal and storage companies.
The BS 8522 sets the benchmark for all aspects of the commercial moving operation and covers three phases of the work: initial contact, survey and quotation; the carrying out phase and follow-up including quality measurement and remedying the shortcomings.
The Standard requires a demonstrable and measurable level of compliance and achievement against each of these elements. Systems and procedures that are in place to provide evidence of these are audited and evaluated externally annually to ensure continued adherence and compliance to the standard.
Why you should use a BS 8522-accredited mover?
By ensuring you use a BAR member, it means that your commercial move will always be conducted to the highest industry standards. BS 8522 has been developed for the benefit of the Commercial moving sector, so for your own benefit (and peace of mind) you should always choose a commercial remover with the BS 8522 Standard and ensure that all tender documents include this Standard as a minimum requirement.
