Professional Sourcebook (2017-2018)

The Biggest and Single-Most Consulted Publication in the Moving and Storage Industry! 

Our comprehensive membership directory, AMSA’s Professional Sourcebook, is the one-stop resource for AMSA members seeking reputable and trusted moving companies and industry suppliers in the moving and storage industry.

The directory is available to all 3,500 AMSA members (via print and online), and provides a comprehensive list of key contacts and complete contact details for domestic (interstate and intrastate) and international movers, repair firms and industry suppliers, plus state and local moving associations. Members can also find details on a company’s warehouse facilities, vehicles and scales. Movers are also identified by whether or not they are approved for GSA, military or international shipments.

Companies listed in the membership directory are organized by state, making it easy for AMSA members to locate the ones with which they choose to do business. The directory also lists industry suppliers by name and product/service categories.

This is the only national directory of full-service movers across the United States and around the world. You’ll benefit from the tremendous exposure your ad will repeatedly receive in the most consulted publication in the industry.

The AMSA Professional Sourcebook is an advertising opportunity that won’t be back for another year, so don’t miss out; reserve your space now.  Ad space is limited, so please act quickly.
