 Belong to Your Movers Association 150x150 There Are Too Many Reasons You Should Belong To Your State Moving Association

The role of your state moving association is very important and beneficial for everyone involved.  AMSA (American Moving & Storage Association) strongly recommends that all of its members become involved with their moving associations.  These are some of the points that AMSA stresses and are important for movers, consumers, and everyone who plays a role in the relocation process.

Regulatory Matters:

State or Federal level, there are certain requirements whether its licensing, tariffs, taxes, complaints, filings, driver (CDL information), that your state association can help you deal with.

Lobbying:

They are always looking out for new legislation or proposed legislation that may affect our industry.

Education:

Whether its conventions, training seminars, new technology, your state moving association is there to help assist with new topics that arise.

Public Relations and Marketing:

Although they do not refer movers/moving companies, being a member and being able to use their logo as being a member is a better way to advertise your company.  Your membership with AMSA as well as your state moving association gives your company more credibility.

Customer Referrals:

The association’s websites educate consumers to do their homework before hiring a mover, so reputable moving companies can get business.

Supplies/Forms:

Your state moving association will offer programs for items such as bills of ladings, estimates, brochures and tariff publications to make sure you are operating properly.

Experienced Association:

They are here to help you get through challenges that may arise whether it’s from customers, claims, government agencies, etc.  Give them a call they are there to help you.

There are many things your state moving association can bring to the table for you as a moving company, or questions consumers may have.  Below is a list of all of the state moving associations, your one stop for getting all of your questions and concerns answered.
