Jacksonville Moving FAQ's by Dick Eschbacher

1. Do I need valuation coverage for my move?

We always recommend you check with your homeowner’s insurance first. While we probably have the best trained crews in the industry, you have to consider the rain and the elements that we have in Florida. It’s something you should consider – we don’t think you’ll need it, but an educated consumer is a wise consumer.

2. Can I choose any day to load my belongings?

You can choose any day to load your things. However, for the delivery, remember that typically we’re going to need a choice of several days, depending on how far you’re moving.

3. How can I best prepare for my Jacksonville move?

Educating yourself on the web is always a good option – our website has a lot of materials to help you move, such as a moving checklist, no matter if you’re an individual moving locally, internationally, or a business. Our sales reps also act as professional consultants, and they’ll provide you with tips on how to either keep the costs down, or to take the stress out of the move.

4. What are my different options for a moving estimate? How can you simplify the process for me?

All of the estimates are no-cost and no-obligation. Whether you call-in, or use our option for a virtual walkthrough using your smartphone, a sales person will look at what your needs are, and then give you a couple of choices. An example would be a ‘not to exceed’ or a flat rate. We look at your move, your budget, the particulars of your move, and then we present what we think is going to work best for you.

5. How do you select and hire your employees? Do you use your own people, or do you contract some work out?

The best security in terms of your goods is a well-educated, well-trained driver. We train our drivers intensively through the Suddath University program, which is on-site in Jacksonville

As a local moving company, we use a combination of our own employees and contractors. The contractors are full-time, 100% dedicated to us. We grow our own, which is the best way to do it, and because of our prominence in the market, training and overall investment in our people, the best come to us. We’re very selective about who we let join our Jacksonville movers team. 

There’s a vetting process where we’re looking at their driving record, background, the number of years’ experience, safety records, the quality scores, all of those things to determine if they have the right stuff to join the team. 

6. Moving can be stressful. What can you do to make it easier and simpler for me?

Suddath moving company is basically a one-stop-shop. We can help you find the realtor, we can give you the estimates that fit your budget, we can give you the packing materials, informational videos and more. We’re a very consultative organization and provide support and visibility to your items every step of the way. We are not a high-pressure sale and, more than anything, we can make sure that our crews have the empathy and experience to work with you in what can be a challenging process. 

7. Can my possessions be temporarily stored with Suddath? If so, what are the differences between short-term and long-term storage?

We’ve got a state-of-the-art 155,000-square foot facility with probably the best security system in Jacksonville. We have ambient storage, we have climate-controlled storage. We have a variety of options that will allow someone to work within their budget and make sure that if there are any special requirements, we have the logistical ability to handle it. 

The main difference between short and long-term, or permanent, storage is the timeframe in which your household items will be stored. It’s important to remember that for interstate moves, your storage time may cap at 180 days. In either case, your items will be stored in a fully-enclosed vault within a warehouse. With vault storage, our warehouse staff will pad wrap your valuables and carefully store them in the container.

8. Do you offer any discard and donation programs for Jacksonville customers?

Move for Hunger is a free service and program in which Suddath takes nonperishable food that you’re not bringing with you on your move and delivers it to local food banks. We also work with HabiJax, and several other charitable organizations so that if there is furniture you want to donate, we can put you in touch, or handle that on your behalf.

9. What do you do to ensure quality and customer satisfaction?

Customer satisfaction and quality emanates from several key functions. One is properly selecting the people that we think can provide an exceptional experience because of their ability to develop their soft skills. Part of it is our Suddath University training center, because we believe that training should happen at our facility, not inside of your home. 

Another part of it is certainly the quality control personnel that are out there in the field who are stopping by to see how things are going, and part of it is our survey and feedback process so that we can take what you’ve shared with us and incorporate it into our training, and address anything if there is a need for that.

10. What commercial moving services do you offer?

We are the primary office mover here in Jacksonville. We have many large local businesses who use us exclusively, that’s one part of our business, and on the other hand, we handle operations like medical facilities, smaller office buildings, law firms, and more. 

We have our own proprietary cutting-edge technology — Estimator and Tracker, powered by Telescio® — that make the commercial moving process easier and more transparent for our customers, giving them peace of mind and security in knowing that everything we’ve moved has been delivered and set up the right way. 

We can sell you the furniture, we can reconfigure your office, we can take down the cubicles, move them from Point A to Point B, put them back up. It’s literally one call, and we’ll handle the entire move. That does make us unique in Jacksonville, and rather unique throughout the industry.

11. Can you support companies importing goods from overseas?

We have extensive global freight forwarding experience, including fulfilling unique transportation requirements to clients in some of the most challenging regions of the world. 

Our Global Logistics division is a one-stop-shop third-party logistics (3PL) provider. We are a licensed NVOCC with in-house customs licensed brokerage capabilities. Suddath ensures that documentation is filed, and import regulations are followed. Our bonded warehousing network also offers activated free trade zone (FTZ) space that will keep to a minimum any delayed timelines and unnecessary fees for our customers who are importing goods from overseas.

12. Our hotel is undergoing a remodel, what type of support do you offer?

Our Hospitality Logistics team is equipped to help with all phases of your hotel remodel, and even new construction.  We offer services such as project management, warehousing and distribution/sequencing, FF&E installation and transportation management. We service everything from business-class hotel chains like the Hilton Garden Inn to large international resorts, like Baha Mar in the Bahamas. Since we have locations in nearly every major market, we are able to provide cost savings of up to 40% in Suddath markets compared to non-asset based providers Suddath also offers installation services and project management which work hand-in-hand to ensure your project is installed properly, on time and on budget.
