Using only the best materials and techniques, our professional packers and movers are experienced, background checked and well trained to provide the best level of service possible. If you don’t have the time to pack your home yourself, the full-service option takes a lot of stress off you while we handle it all.

Not sure what’s going and what’s staying? We offer secure household goods storage to keep your personal belongings secure for as long as you need. In certain locations, we offer temperature- or climate-controlled storage options to safely store delicate or temperature-sensitive items.

If your home move includes the relocation of specialty items like pianos, classic cars, motorcycles, boats or even pets – don’t worry, we have you covered. Since opening our doors over 100 years ago, we have seen and moved almost anything, so you can feel confident that we will handle all your items with the highest level of care and protection.

This was my first long-distance move and I’m happy to say that it went very smoothly. Joaquin Guzman provided me with stellar service from beginning to end. He provided me with an accurate quote based on a video walk-through of my home. He answered all of my questions in a timely manner and with utmost professionalism. When the delivery date of my belongings looked like it was going to be delayed longer than anticipated, both Joaquin and move coordinator Dianna Smoltz sprung into action and managed to secure a firm delivery date within the promised delivery window. That was a huge relief and I’m very appreciative of all of their help. Overall, I can’t imagine my interstate move going any better or smoother than it actually did. I’m very happy and satisfied with the service I received from everyone at United Van Lines and Suddath. I’ll definitely use their services again the next time I need to move my entire household.

Simply amazing! Three very professional employees working relentlessly to get my house set up.
From Deb Hicks to Madison Newmes to Bill ( the driver), it was my easiest move ever and I have transferred over 7 times. This being the first time I moved myself, I was very pleasantly surprised at how efficient and easy it went. Highly satisfied customer, thank you

When you’re planning a move, it can feel like there are too many steps in your moving checklist to prioritize, let alone accomplish. Combine this with the fear of forgetting something, and you have a recipe for a far more unpleasant experience than moving needs to be.Read More
MOVING COMPANY FAQ
We always recommend you check with your homeowner’s insurance first. While we probably have the best trained home movers in the industry, you must consider the elements like rain and snow. Having extra protection is something you should consider – we don’t think you’ll need it, but an educated consumer is a wise consumer.
All the estimates are no-cost and no-obligation. Whether you call in or use our option for a virtual walkthrough using your smartphone, a salesperson 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.
We have state-of-the-art facilities across the U.S., with probably the best security systems in the industry. We have ambient storage and climate-controlled storage. We have a variety of storage 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 time frame 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.
The best security in terms of your home and belongings is a well-educated, well-trained driver. We train our drivers intensively through the Suddath University program, which is on-site in Jacksonville, FL.
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 moving company.
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 those things determine if they have the right stuff to join the team.
As a professional moving company, Suddath 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 moving company 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 home movers have the empathy and experience to work with you in what can be a challenging process.
