The Professional Movers' Association (PMA), previously know as the South African Furniture Removers and Warehousemen's Association (SAFWA) was founded in 1959.
The original objective of the PMA was to give its members a voice in applying for transport permits that were required in those days. The PMA also promoted the sharing of return load facilities among its members. Although the permit system was revoked in 1991, the PMA continued as an accreditation body, setting professional standards for the removal industry.
Today the PMA represents a guarantee of superior service, quality and peace of mind. PMA membership is also conditional upon prescribed professional standards and a code of ethics
