Our employees and crews are committed to giving customers the highest level of care and thoughtfulness during what can be a stressful time.

We offer a flexible range of options to suit every move’s needs and budget.
Why We’re Minneapolis’ Choice for Best Moving Company
Suddath’s experience in the moving and storage industry, as well as in Minnesota, has allowed us to build a reputation as a trustworthy, considerate and reliable moving company in both Minneapolis-St. Paul and around the world.
Every member of our crew is trained personally by us. Even if someone is coming to us with decades of experience, we put them through our own industry-leading Suddath University program, which ensures that anyone who comes to your door understands our high safety and service expectations.
They have also been fully background checked, drug tested, insured and properly licensed. We take safety seriously, as well as the care of your home, family and belongings.
We want to provide you with a moving experience that best suits your needs. That is why we give our customers choices. Our moving services can be personalized to suit your needs and budget – from a move where we pick up and transport what you have packed, all the way to letting us handle the entire move for you, packing, storage needs and all. No matter what moving services you choose, we provide a positive moving experience, and lessen stress as much as possible.
One of the ways we do this is by assigning every customer a professional move coordinator. This team member will walk you through every step of the process, help you go through your home move options and check in with you along the way.
At Suddath, we lead in safety and customer satisfaction because of our employees. We know that by taking care of them, they will take care of you and your family during moving time.
Getting you anywhere you need to be
1. Are you an insured and licensed moving company?
You have to worry about a lot of things when moving but being taken advantage of by your mover shouldn’t be one of them. There are those rogue moving companies out there to watch out for, and one easy way to pick out the trustworthy ones is to ask for license and insurance information on the company. The best local moving companies will not hesitate to provide you with this information. At Suddath, we readily invite our customers with our US Department of Transportation (US DOT) and local Motor Carrier (MC) numbers, and will supply you with any other helpful information we can.
Third-party organizations, such as the Better Business Bureau (BBB), where Suddath proudly maintains an A+ rating, or Google Reviews, will also give you a good indication of your moving company’s credibility.
2. Do you offer flexible options for getting a free and accurate moving quote?
There are many things that can affect how much a move will cost, but generally it is done by the weight of what you will be moving. To ensure you know what your move will cost, the best moving companies will (and are required to) provide you with an in-person moving quote.
Suddath provides free, thorough and transparent moving quotes. Before you sign anything, we make sure you know how much it is going to cost you from start to finish. If Suddath is your choice for a home mover in Minneapolis, you can be sure that there will be no surprises.
We make every effort to ensure that the quote process is as easy as possible for you. If your schedule doesn’t allow for an in-person home estimate, we also provide a convenient virtual video walkthrough. If you have a tablet or a smartphone and a connection to wifi, your move coordinator can call you virtually, and you can walk them through your home in a video chat. Your move coordinator will guide you through the house to get all of the information they need in order to give an accurate quote.
3. How do you select and hire your employees – do you use contract workers?
It’s a staple of the moving industry that every company will use contractors, otherwise called owner-operators in some moves, alongside salaried employees. In Minneapolis about 50% of the crew is employees and 50% are contractors. However, all of those contractors work exclusively for us, and in almost all cases have done so for years. Many of our owner-operators have worked with us for 15 years or longer.
We know how stressful moving is, and the last thing you want is to be concerned about the people coming into your home. Anyone coming from Suddath to your home has been vetted by us through interviewing, training, background checks and drug tests.
From the moment they knock on your door, our team is there to serve you. We are able to attract and retain the best drivers and crews in the industry because we invest in our people and want to see them grow. Because of our employees, we receive consistent recognition from the American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA) and multiple Driver of the Year awards from United Van Lines to prove that our people are leaders in the industry.
