Introducing the APG Scheme  

On July 1st 2017, the British Association of Removers (BAR) launched the Advanced Payment Guarantee (APG) scheme. As BAR members, we’re covered by the scheme – which means you, our customers, are covered.

What is the APG scheme?

Before you move, you’ll be asked to pay in full for your removal – an advanced payment. The APG scheme protects you in the event that Squab goes into financial difficulty prior to completing your move or storage contract. In other words, the advanced payment you pay to us is protected by the BAR, the trade association for the removals industry.

What does the scheme cover?

The scheme covers advanced payments made by cash, direct debit or cheque for removal and storage contracts completed within the UK.

What does this mean for you?

Peace of mind! It’s yet another reason to use a BAR member for your removal. You can rest assured knowing your pre-payment is secure and protected.

How can you identify members of the scheme?

Look out for the logo. We’re proud to display it on our website.

You can download our certificate of membership along with the full terms and conditions.
