Certified Moving Consultant

Is Your Moving Consultant a CMC?

What is a CMC?

A Moving Consultant who is a "CMC" is someone who has received a Certified Moving Consultant credential. The CMC credential has come to represent a fundamental competency and adherence to ethical conduct of the sales force for the Household Goods Moving & Storage Industry. In dealing with a CMC while planning your move, you can be assured that you are working with a knowledgeable moving consultant who is committed to providing excellent and fair service.

How do salespeople become Certified Moving Consultants?

Salespeople in the Household Goods Moving & Storage Industry must go through an application process to become a Certified Moving Consultant. Once they apply to the program, they must sign a Code of Ethics and Professional Standards and pass a certification exam to become a CMC. Once they have passed the exam, each CMC must pay annual dues and go through a recertification process to maintain their CMC status. If your salesperson is NOT a CMC he/she cannot be held accountable to the CMC Code of Ethics and Professional Practices.

NOTE: It is always a good idea to ensure the company you are considering to relocate your personal belongings is a member of AMSA. If they are a member, they are required to participate in our Arbitration program. To check on the membership status of a moving company, please call (703) 683-7410 or email us.
