HOME MOVING, PACKING & STORAGE SERVICES
Full-Service Packing and Unpacking
With our full-service packers and movers, you can get the assistance you need to get your move prepped and ready to go, without all the hassle. 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. We also offer partial packing services to meet your budget and needs, and will only pack the items you tell us to.
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.
Specialized Moving Services
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. We only work with highly-trained professional movers who are background-checked and experienced in moving clients who demand the best.
TRUST GOES A LONG WAY
Henry, Naldo, Kaleb, and Sunny were very attentive and professional when delivering the move and getting things in place—excellent job and service.
Damon and Ray did an excellent job today. Their professionalism, care, and efficiency were outstanding. Thank you!!🤩
We move a lot and this last moving company and crew by far were the best! Ray and Damon were fantastic from start to finish very personable, and very willing to help move some thing if I changed my mind.
Melissa and crew showed up at my door and told me to go relax. They took care of everything. They worked so hard and got the truck packed up in no time. True professionals. Melissa went through the check list at the end. Great experience during a stressful time. Thank you Melissa and crew.
Suddath Movers did an awesome job moving our household goods from a storage facility in Orlando to Tampa, as part of our international move / PCS from Stuttgart, Germany back to Florida. Otis Mullings and his crew were fantastic! Professional, hard working, efficient, easygoing, and thoughtful. Highly recommend!
Tampa/St. Petersburg, FL
Very professional service, one on one inventory checks, friendly movers. Nothing but the best that one could ever expect from it.
While I was only “helping” my elderly Aunt and Uncle relocate to be closer to me, I have personally moved 9 times throughout the US. This was by far the best experience one could ask for. The crew – from the packers to the driver to the driver’s assistant-were extremely polite and patient with my family and with me. You could not ask for a more dedicated crew. Thank you!!
Xavier, Sunny and Tom—Great service, politeness and cooperation by all three. They were super efficient., businesslike and very considerate. It was wonderful to have them as our movers. They go the extra yard in every respect. Would recommend Suddath to anyone.
Excellent experience. Crew worked hard and fast . Overall would highly recommend this crew of packers.
No matter where you are moving from or to, you can count on our experience, resources and local, national and global reach to get you there so you can focus more on your destination and less on the move.

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
HOME 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.
At our moving company, we offer multiple unpacking options. Your movers can put furniture and other transported items into designated rooms; unpack; and carry away leftover boxes. Or, you can tell us which items to unpack. Or our movers can simply put your transported belongings into the correct rooms and you can unpack yourself in ways of your choice. If you have questions about what’s right for you, contact us for guidance.
It isn’t unusual to want to store furniture when staging your home for sale or for other relocation-related purposes. So, when seeking “moving companies near me,” check to see if they offer storage services. If so, this can be a seamless way to manage your move and storage needs through one company.
Our moving company offers secure, convenient storage options that can benefit you in these ways:
• Provides a storage solution until your new home is ready
• Allows you to postpone deciding what to keep until you’re done moving
• Facilitates decluttering when you’re showing your home for sale
• Provides space during remodeling
• Allows you to store belongings for longer amounts of time when at non-permanent relocations
Our moving company provides flexible options, including climate-controlled spaces, temperature-controlled areas, and vault/warehousing.
When seeking a home mover, check to see if they discuss pet transport solutions. Not all moving companies will. At Suddath, our moving company has guided plenty of customers who want to know how to move their pets. What’s most important is the pre-planning—and, to help, here is our pet relocation checklist.
Important issues to discuss with your moving company include the proper types of transport containers. If moving out of the country, there may be medical/vaccination requirements to address.
Fortunately, at Suddath (not true of all moving companies), your assigned move coordinator will explore pet relocation options for you and leverage relationships we’ve built with full-service pet relocation providers.
Suddath offers safe, secure, quality storage services. So, you may decide to store some of your belongings in a facility until your new home is ready. Doing so allows you to declutter and, if needed, stage your home for open houses—and by using storage services offered by your moving company, this streamlines the process and reduces the number of vendors to juggle.
Here’s another benefit. When you store belongings, this can give you more time to decide which ones you’ll keep and which ones you’ll get rid of, reducing the number of decisions to make during your move. If you’ll be remodeling your new place, this gives you physical space in which to do so without having to move furniture around. If you’ll be at a non-permanent relocation, you may decide to take advantage of long-term storage options.
We offer flexible solutions, including climate-controlled spaces, temperature-controlled areas, and vault/warehousing needs.
Your Rights and Responsibilities as an Individual Shipper
When acting in its capacity as an interstate household goods broker, Suddath does not transport an individual shipper's household goods, but arranges for the transportation of the household goods by an FMCSA-authorized household goods motor carrier, whose charges will be determined by its published tariff. If Suddath provides an estimate on any carrier’s behalf, the estimate must be based on the carrier’s tariff and the carrier is required to make its tariff available for public inspection upon a reasonable request.
