People who aren’t movers or work for moving companies or storage facilities may not know what AMSA is. But to those of us in the moving and storage industry, AMSA membership means a lot! AMSA membership also means a lot to customers. Read on to learn what AMSA is, what it does, and what it means for you:
The American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA) is a non-profit organization that advocates for and recognizes excellent business practices and customer satisfaction in the storage and moving industry. AMSA has been around since 1936 and boasts a membership of about 3,200 moving men and women and employees at storage facilities. Given the number of moving companies and storage facilities in the United States, you may notice that AMSA membership is not very large—that’s because AMSA is an exclusive organization that only admits the best of the best into its ranks. All members follow a strict code of ethics and provide the best moving and storage service available.
For customers of moving companies, AMSA membership is a way to delineate between a great moving company and one that should be avoided. Many people don’t realize that there are a lot of moving companies (many of which are unlicensed) that are notorious for losing or damaging property, shady business practices, and overall unhelpfulness. If you’re going to hire a company like that, then you’re wasting your time and money. A recent article from WIVB in Buffalo about AMSA and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) reported that nearly 9,000 complaints were filed against moving companies in the United States. Customers can trust that AMSA-certified movers, moving companies, and storage facilities will have a solid track record of customer service and satisfaction.
