CAM Certification Takes One More Step

Members are now able to validate themselves to consumers as Certified Canadian Movers through their Blackberrys and iPhones. CAM has implemented a webpage that members can access through handheld devices. You and your sales staff can show consumers that your company is certified through the Canadian Association of Movers. Go to www.mover.net/search (English) or www.mover.net/trouver (French) and search for your company (enter a few letters of your company name and add the city name if your name is not unique) and show your prospective customer that you are certified. Let your sales staff know about this.

Certification helps to close sales!
