Always Verify a Mover's Credentials

CAM strongly urges consumers to do their due diligence before hiring a mover, as they would before purchasing any other major service. It's not like buying a pair of shoes. You are entrusting your entire lifelong belongings to someone you likely don't know.

To help avoid moving problems, CAM recommends that you contact the Better Business Bureau or the Canadian Association of Movers member directory to confirm that your mover is a trusted and reliable company.

You can also check the Ontario Government's Consumer Beware List: Ontario Ministry of Government & Consumer Services. 

Here's a joint CAM/BBB press release as a caution to consumers, particularly during the COVID-19 crisis: Make the Right Move During the Pandemic (April 15, 2020).

 

Always Verify a Claim About CAM Membership

Fraudulent Use of CAM Logo and/or Implied Relationship with CAM

The following companies have implied a relationship with the Canadian Association of Movers, either by displaying the CAM/ACD logo on their websites or by suggesting that they are CAM members or CAM-certified. These companies are NOT CAM members and we recommend that you carefully check their claims. Always verify the mover's credentials before hiring them.

  • By Design Commercial Moving Solutions Inc.(Ontario)
  • A number of companies in the Montreal area are fraudulently displaying the CAM logo on their websites and/or claiming ACD/CAM membership but are NOT CAM members. Here is one of them:
    • EBL Déménagement.

  • Ali Movers (Toronto, ON)

 

August 10, 2022 - Ezine The Daily Tribute has posted false information indicating that "High-Level Movers is a Canadian Association of Movers (CAM) member. This membership shows that they adhere to professional industry standards for moving services in Calgary."  This company is not a CAM member and the professionalism of their services is unknown to CAM.  We urge you to do your research and verify the identity and reputation of the mover before you hire them.

June 9, 2022 - Oskaloosa First Presbyterian posted false information indicating that "A-ZIP Movers...in London, Ontario...are accredited members of the Canadian Association of Movers (CAM)". This company has not been accredited by CAM and is not a CAM member.  CAM confirms that AMJ Campbell Van Lines and Sprint Moving Service, both in London, ON and also mentioned in the article, are both certified moving companies and members of CAM.  We urge you to do your research and verify the identity and reputation of the mover before you hire them.

 

Always Verify a Displayed Brand

Rogue operations often use reputable company brand names in their online listings and ads. Consumers are being led to believe they've hired a professional brand name moving company but another company shows up on moving day, when the consumer has no choice but to proceed with the transaction. The experience usually ends up with the consumer's goods being held hostage for more money, delivery delays, and losses or damage to treasured possessions.

Always verify a mover's stated affiliations before you hire them.
