Best Priced Packing Boxes
The most obvious thing people think about when looking for the best UK packing box suppliers is the price. Buying the cheapest, however, rarely makes sense as the quality of your packing boxes quickly comes down. What you want to be assured of is quality packing boxes at the best price possible, regardless of the size of your business. BAR Services are able to offer such prices because we bulk buy on behalf of all our customers and BAR members at once.
It may surprise you to read but for BAR Service members we are actually a not-for-profit organisation. We were originally set up as a co-operative and therefore had to work like this. Whilst times have changed, this ethos remains. It is part of what makes us unique.
Quality Assured and Environmentally Friendly
Ever company offers degrees of quality assurance. So you might ask “what is different about that?”
The difference about BAR Services is that all our products carry a BAR Trade Association stamp. They have literally been tested by the UK removal trade. When we find a new product we ask the Board of Directors of the trade body to test them in their removal firms. Unless we hear back that they like them, they are not quality assured and we will not sell them. In 32 years of trading, every single product that we’ve brought on board has been tested in this way!
On top of that, we are IS0 14001 accredited. This is an environmental standard that all our suppliers have to achieve before we will buy from them. If your business has to answer questions about supporting the environment then you can at least guarantee that you only buy packing boxes manufactured from sustainable sources.
Company director Miranda says “As a business that sells paper and plastics, we recognise our responsibilities to the environment. Through our product range, expert team and the information we put out on our blog and social media we support a sustainable planet”
One thing you can be sure of about the Removal Industry is that it is people based. Whilst the internet might have speeded some things up the removal trade still thrives on personal relationships and impeccable service. BAR Services was set up in 1977. That is over 30 years of trading so it is fair to say we know the market and know your removal firm business needs.
When you work with BAR Services you get a dedicated Account Manager who will look after you beautifully. We follow up every query directly with you, manage your orders and ensure you get exactly what you need at the time you needed it. It is a pretty essential baseline that we love to work to. The success of our business is down to the success of your business, and that means great customer service.
We could not profess to being the best packing box supplier in the UK without great customer service!
