Moving Company FAQs

How much does a moving company cost?

No two moves are ever alike. There are local moves as well as long distance moves and international relocations; each comes with its own requirements, distances, and associated costs with each moving company able to charge its own rates.

The weight of the belongings can make a difference, and so can the packing and unpacking services you choose; the storage services selected; and the specialized moving services you want and need.

Our moving company works with each customer to design a customized moving experience that’s just right for them. To get a quote for your unique move, please reach out or click here for more resources on how much movers cost.

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

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.

Do I need valuation coverage for my home move?

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.

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

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.

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 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.

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

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.

Do professional movers unpack for you?

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.

What do your household moving services include?

Our household moving services include the following:

• Affordable local moves made simple
Long distance moves by trustworthy teams
• One-stop-shop for international relocations
Specialized moving services that typical household movers may not offer
• Flexible packing and unpacking services
• Safe, secure, and convenient storage services

No matter what you need, we’ll work with you to design just the right personalized relocation. Each of them will be performed by thoroughly vetted, background checked, and trained crews of household movers supported by a dedicated single point of contact move coordinator. Plus, we leverage our century-plus of experience in every move we make: about 80,000 per year.

If you’d like a quote for your relocation, just let our moving company know. Our goal is to be the best moving company, and that includes how easy we make it to get a fast, accurate quote.

How can I find a top-rated moving company?

Ask friends, family members, and work colleagues who’ve used professionals for their relocations for recommendations for the best moving company. Explore the websites of the household movers they’ve recommended, checking to see if they have the services you need in your geographical area. Also make sure they’ve got the proper licenses and accreditations. When a moving company checks all the boxes, request a quote.

You’ll want to be searching for a moving company and getting quotes at least eight weeks in advance of your move. Suddath has a complete moving checklist to help you get started and stay on track.

When looking for the best moving company, please consider Suddath. We’re the experienced choice (more than one hundred years of experience with 80,000 residential relocations each year!) with well vetted, background checked, and trained moving crews. We offer a flexible menu of services, including specialty moving services, packing and unpacking services, and safe, secure, and convenient storage solutions.

How should you store furniture when moving?

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.

How do you move with a pet?

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.

How do you store household goods when moving?

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.

Why choose a moving company over a DIY move?

If boiled down to two key reasons, they’d be the risks and challenges of DIY moves and the benefits of using a professional moving company.

First, DIY moves will typically be cheaper, but they also come with costs: renting a truck, paying friends and family members to help, insurance to protect your belongings in transit, meals, lodging when moving long distance, and so forth.

You’ll also need to pay for packing supplies: boxes, tape, bubble wrap, and more. It may be challenging to get enough people to help you on days of choice and, without the right equipment and experience, injuries can occur—and then you’d need to deal with the liability. Trucks can break down and so forth. The risks can be greater, as well as your time cost.

Contrast that to using professional household moving services where well-trained experts take on the heavy lifting using the proper equipment and supplies and navigate the move in optimal ways to protect your lifetime of belongings. They save you plenty of time and, when you compare costs of DIY-ing your move with professional household movers, you might be surprised, expecting a bigger difference in costs.

Then, when you pick the best moving company for your needs—such as Suddath—you can gain peace of mind. Seamlessly get a quote.

Will Suddath tailor household moving services to my needs?

Absolutely! Our flexibility is one of the reasons that we’re such an outstanding moving company as we tailor moves to the individual customer for the ultimate satisfaction.

This includes in our menu of packing and unpacking services (from full to partial to DIY support); our safe, secure, and convenient storage options; and specialized household moving services. You make the selections you need, and we’ll take it from there, providing you with a customized moving experience.

How do I research the best moving company near me?

You can ask for recommendations from friends, family members, and business colleagues who have moved in your local area. Then, make sure to check the website and reviews of the moving companies they’ve suggested. This should help you to create a list of companies to explore further.

When you look at a website for a moving company, ensure that they have the household moving services you need and that they’re appropriately licensed and accredited. From there, you can pick the best moving company for your situation.

We invite you to reach out to Suddath to get a fast and accurate quote for the services you need. Once you have spoken to several companies and have moving quotes, you’ll be able to narrow down which ones will best suit your move.

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.
