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 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.
