Moving & Storage Industry
The American Trucking Associations (ATA) is honored to welcome members of the moving and storage industry into the ATA Federation. By joining forces, moving and storage members will have a seat at the table in formulating policies affecting companies operating heavy-duty trucks on our nation’s highways. Joining with ATA provides the moving and storage segment a significant boost in advocacy firepower on Capitol Hill and before the regulatory agencies while also allowing the broader trucking industry to present a more unified front before lawmakers and regulators.
Moving & Storage Conference
The ATA Moving & Storage Conference was established in October 2020, with the membership electing their Board of Directors and Officers. ATA is offering member benefit programs such as Arbitration, Agents of Process, the 400NG Cloud and an Affinity (discount) programs. ATA’s ProMover certification program has launched and many of the training and certification programs are in process.
The Moving & Storage Conference (MSC) is the leading national organization representing household goods moving companies, industry suppliers and state moving and storage associations. The Conference sets household goods government affairs policy positions on Capitol Hill, promotes industry unity and provides a forum for intra-industry debate and collaboration.
The ATA Conference also serves as the leading educator and partner to moving and storage consumers worldwide. We work tirelessly to improve public safety and trust in the relocation market through various avenues, including the development of best practices with our members, rigorous consumer education programs and advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill.
If you have any questions about the conference, please email email@example.com.
ProMover is a certification program that gives consumers an easy way to separate reputable, professional movers from “rogue operators.” The ProMover certification takes the worry and the hassle out of moving by helping consumers identify professional movers who have agreed to abide by high standards and by providing information and assistance with everything from finding a mover, to getting an estimate and packing tips, to understanding valuation and insurance.
ATA is offering an Arbitration Program for its moving and storage members so that they can designate for resolving disputes with shippers.
Moving and storage members will have an opportunity to participate in ATA’s Agents of Process/BOC-3 program after filling out required paperwork. (Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.)
ATA is offering the 400NG Tariff program which can be found here.
The American Trucking Associations offers a number of training and certification programs designed for moving and storage industry professionals to hone their skills. These programs provide the benefit of not only boosting consumer confidence that they are hiring a reputable representative of the moving and storage industry, but also increasing the company’s bottom line by reducing claims and damages.
