International removals and shipping is far more complicated and requires a much higher level of expertise than moving domestically within the UK. You can therefore rest assured that when you choose PSS International Removals for your move overseas that we are accredited to the very highest international standards.

Our expertly trained staff are able to take care of every detail for you including negotiating the best shipping rates, assisting you with international shipping and import documentation, high standards of export wrapping and packing required for long sea journeys right through to handling customs and delivery by our fully accredited partners in your destination country.

Below is an outline of some of our main credentials including some of our important accreditations and industry associations.

BAR Overseas Group

The British Association of Removers

The British Association of Removers (BAR) is dedicated to promoting professional excellence in the UK removals industry.

To become a BAR Member a removal company has to prove that they can meet the high standards included in the BAR Code of Practice; companies are audited annually and their performance is monitored by the Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI). So only the best removal companies are able to meet these standards.

Members who display the BAR TSI Approved Code logo offer peace of mind and reliable customer service. This starts with the very first contact you have with the Member and continues not just to the completion of the move but through to your satisfaction.

You can download the the BAR Code of practice here and also complete the customer questionnaire on completion of your move.

BAR Advanced Payment Guarantee Scheme

Protected by the BAR Advanced Payment Guarantee Scheme

When you move with PSS International Removals you have the added security that advance payments for your removal are covered by the BAR Advanced Payment Guarantee Scheme.

This is like the international removals equivalent of ABTA for the travel industry so in the event of a BAR company Member suffering financial failure, the Guarantee Scheme covers the reasonable costs of completing the contracted move. It is therefore a very wise precaution to ensure whichever company you choose for your international removal is a member of this scheme.

FAIM Quality Certification

The FAIM Quality Certification programme is the only independently audited certification programme for the international moving and relocation industry. If a company holds the FAIM Certification, it means that they are compliant with strict, industry-specific requirements. The FIDI-FAIM certification programme requires that international movers have a periodic independent assessment of their inter-continental moving activities through an independent audit which is performed every three years.

PSS was recently awarded the FIDI-FAIM “top performer status”, following a quality assessment audit by Ernst & Young, making us one of the highest ranked international removal companies in the world.
