Personalized Service that Removes Stress from Long-Distance Relocation

When moving long distances, you need someone by your side for every mile. Suddath® assigns all customers to a long distance move coordinator who can help you plan at every stage to ensure your move goes smoothly.

Our move coordinators are set up for success with 25 hours in our own in-house training center, and an additional 250 hours of mentored training in the field. From the first call here in Charlotte to the placement of furniture in your new home, your Coordinator will manage every detail.

From our century of experience in the moving industry, we have learned that every move is different. This is why our move coordinators take the time to learn your priorities and address your personal concerns, becoming a partner you can depend on throughout the moving process.

No matter what special circumstances you need us to work with, we are here to help. Your move coordinator can even take the packing and unpacking tasks off your hands. We offer many services that can be arranged for you such as:

  • Moving and storage of fine art collections, vehicles, pianos, antiques, and more

How we protect your belongings and your peace of mind

It’s important to know that your possessions are being protected and considered every step of the way during a long distance move. You need to know that you’ve made the right choice when you choose a moving company. It’s important to you that the things you’ve worked your whole life for are treated with respect. It’s important to us, too.

We received the AMSA Award for our commitment to excellent customer service. We maintain a BBB Rating of A+. As a partner and Top Booking Agent for United Van Lines, we provide the reliability and coverage of the #1 mover in the U.S. and together we are the leader in long distance moving.

Every team member you interact with has passed our rigorous background check before ever working on a customer’s move. Each Suddath Moving Team Member is also educated at Suddath University. This school provides in-depth training and education in logistics, moving, and relocation. At Suddath University, team members must complete the full course and pass the University’s tests before they can begin their career with us. As a result, Suddath Long Distance Moving has won the Driver of the Year Award and other Top-Rated Driver Awards.

Flexible and secure short- and long-term storage

Whatever your storage needs may be, Suddath can provide you with options that are both affordable, and flexible to your needs. We have over 3 million square feet of storage facilities across the country, which all feature 24/7 monitoring and are climate controlled for your most sensitive items.

Often during a long distance move, your storage plans can change. We have the ability to quickly and seamlessly adapt with you to take care of your needs. Your move coordinator will work with you to decide if you need short- or long-term storage, and will coordinate again when you’d like your goods delivered to you.

Long-Distance Moving FAQs

1. What are my options for a long-distance moving estimate?

We offer both in-home surveys and virtual walk-throughs to provide estimates for long distance moves. For both options, your coordinator will go through your home with you room by room and assess what needs to be moved. If you choose an in-home estimate, we will set an appointment for a team member to meet with you at your home. They will perform the walk-through at a time that is convenient for you. If you prefer our virtual walk-through, you will simply use your smartphone or tablet to give our team a video walk-through of your home.

Once the walk-through of your choice is complete, you will have two options:

  • A non-binding estimate - the estimate is based on the total weight of your shipment. However, we will not know the exact weight until moving day, when all your items are loaded onto the truck.
  • A binding estimate - the cost of your move is given up front. So, if the final weight is above or below the estimate, you will only pay the rate we quoted to you.

2. What if you break something? How do I submit a claim?

We work hard to make sure your belongings survive your long distance move without incident. However, in the rare case that an item is damaged, your Suddath long distance move coordinator will be with you through the entire process. The coordinator will provide a claim form and have a claims representative will reach out to you within 24 hours.

3. When should I start my moving process?

Ideally, we recommend that you begin the process no later than two months before your desired move date.

Have less time than that before you need to move? You’re in the right place. Suddath has over 100 years of experience helping families move long distances. We can help you navigate your timeline with an optimized move plan.

4. Do I need valuation coverage?

You will be automatically provided with a $0.60 per lb. valuation, free of charge. However, we are happy to provide additional valuation coverage to every customer that wants more protection. One thing you should keep in mind is that valuation coverage is not insurance. In order to procure insurance for your move, you will need to work through a licensed insurance company.

Learn more about your valuation coverage options in our blog post on the subject.
