The California Moving and Storage Association (CMSA) is a non-profit trade association representing over 385 licensed and insured movers operating in California. Established in 1916, the CMSA provides numerous benefits for its members, including many educational, industry forums, and programs.
Comprised of 12 Chapters strategically located throughout California, the CMSA is highly organized and provides effective leadership for the California moving industry. The CMSA also has effective committees focusing on topics such as Government Affairs, Insurance, and Military Affairs. These Committees provide the membership with valuable information and provide a voice for the membership.
As a condition of CMSA membership, each mover member must be licensed and agree to abide by a Code of Ethics promising to provide California moving consumers honest, legal, and efficient service. Trained personnel, operating clean and safe equipment, are standard CMSA member service characteristics.
The CMSA also includes more than 135 associate member companies. These organizations provide California movers the very best in goods and services to assist in generating a quality service to the California moving public.
The CMSA also plays a valuable role for the California consumer. Through the establishment of membership criteria, consumers who choose a mover that is a member of the CMSA, are more likely to obtain a qualified mover that will provide excellent service.
