Young Movers are already seeing the tangible business benefits that come from being a part of this exciting new group. BAR Young Movers got together at their launch Event held in Birmingham at the end of last year and the day was a complete success. The BAR Young Movers special interest group is endorsed by and part of the Association and will be aimed at employees of BAR members aged in their 20’s and 30’s. Managed by Loren Webster, BARTS Training Manager and Darren House of Farrer & Fenwick, the group is sponsored by Basil Fry & Company and Reason Global Insurance and recognised by Fedemac.
The Young Movers group is a forum for young people who may be new to the industry, young people on a career path, or young people entering or part of a family business.
The aim of the group is to share ideas to enhance their skills and progress their personal career objectives, to network, to learn from others and to forge personal and business relationships within the Association in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Each BAR Young Movers event has a focus on providing tangible business benefits to all involved and there is no joining or membership fee to become part of the group.
The group has been of direct benefit to me, having met another company, Lanes of Cornwall I was able to contact them when I had a Removal in their area and they were able to advise me of the access for the size of the vehicle I was sending, and if needed, they could have provided porter assistance and provided me with useful contact numbers if I needed to Transship. Clearly this would have saved me any unwanted costs if any problems had arisen. I will certainly be keeping in touch with members of the BAR Young Movers group as I can see this providing real benefit in the future. I will also be attending the BAR Young Movers business seminar and the various other business and networking events together with the Young Movers event at this years’ BAR Conference.

The BAR UK Young Movers Group should be really excited to get involved with the European Young Movers. Our events are inexpensive and very focused on providing business benefits to the group and excellent networking opportunities. As a young mover myself I see so many opportunities in getting involved with the UK and European Young Movers. There is no better way to learn about European legislation and regulations than by speaking directly with your peers from various European Countries. Imagine the scenario a truck with access problems in Germany what do you do??? Call your fellow young mover whom you’ve met and established a relationship with for assistance and advice! The more we widen our network of contacts the greater the possibilities....’ Loren Webster, BARTS Training Manager is set to attend the European Young Movers Conference in May to bring further networking benefits to our UK BAR Young Movers group.
