SUMMER 2005

The CAM conference will be a great ending to a very busy moving season. Movers are reporting one of their busiest summers ever. The national office and the Quebec office have been getting lots of calls from people looking for a mover, and also some complaining about the performance of some of your competitors. Sounds like everyone is under pressure.

Keep your contact information up to date with CAM so we can make referrals to you during the slower off-season.
