Cardinale Moving & Storage, Inc., of Castroville, California was recognized as The Monterey Peninsula Chamber of Commerce 2011 Business of the Year at the Chamber’s annual awards banquet dinner on Saturday, March 24th. The 40 year old company earned this coveted award for their excellence in business and outstanding commitment to the community at large. Cardinale knew that they were a finalist, but the winner was not announced until the very end of the dinner which was a wonderful surprise and professional highlight for all the members of the Cardinale family who were in attendance for the banquet.

In 2009 they were the winner of the California Moving & Storage Association (CMSA) Pinnacle Award, which is designed to honor an outstanding company whose commitment to ethical business practices help to portray the Moving and Storage Industry in a positive light within the community.
