TRUST GOES A LONG WAY
Sam Lankford and his crew did an excellent job packing and loading my belongings. They were pleasant, professional, and courteous. I would recommend them to anyone.
Our move with Suddath went very smoothly. From the video survey of our furniture & furnishings with Debbie Ponder, to the moving coordination & status updates from Brenda Irlanda Menendez, to the loading/unloading with driver Reggie Willis, everyone was professional, friendly, helpful and thorough. I would definitely recommend Suddath, and will use them again for our future moves.
Outstanding job/communication and service over five stars. I have moved 14 times (3) international and Suddath was outstanding. Thank you so much.
This was probably the best move we have done. Ken made the estimate process simple and straight forward. Barbara kept in touch throughout the process and the loading and unloading was done timely and as promised. The things that stood out was the exceptional communication from Brenda (I had Brenda’s name incorrect in my original post), our move coordinator, and the drivers, who kept me informed as to their location. The level of customer service was outstanding. I would recommend Suddath without hesitation!

My entire experience from first contact to waving goodbye to the moving van after delivery was outstanding. Having heard horror stories above long distance moves, I was pretty nervous but there was no reason to be. Shout out to May Kelley, who referred me, to Debbie Ponder, who so patiently walked me through the virtual quote process, to Brenda Menendez, who kept in contact about every step of the process and finally to the extraordinary Tom Polfer, who made sure my treasures and family heirlooms were handled carefully and packed securely. Each of these amazing folks made my move go smoothly and worry free. I cannot thank them enough. I would highly recommend Suddath to anyone who is planning a move.
My recent move with sudduth/united was great. I would like to thank my estimator Kenneth Wilson. My coordinator Brenda Irlanda Menendez. And my mover/driver Bishram Megnauth.
We had used Suddath once before, and were so impressed that they were our top choice for our latest move. They were fairly priced, but more importantly, the quality, customer service, and friendliness were all outstanding. Moving is stressful and while they can’t help you decide what to throw away before hand, or put everything away at your destination, they handle everything else and make the move as easy as possible.
I cannot say enough positive about the entire Suddath experience. It felt like family was doing our move from the original quote, to pick up and delivery. Our driver was amazing

LONG-DISTANCE MOVING FAQ
You have most likely seen a United Van Lines truck on the road at some point and thought it was a standalone moving company. Rather, United is represented across the country by independently owned moving companies, or “agents” who work together as a network to fulfill interstate (across state lines) moves. This partnership gives Suddath the ability to reach all states, cities and towns across the United States.
As an example, Suddath may have a branch in your town, we may not have a branch in the city you are moving to. Therefore, Suddath would reach out to one of our trusted United partners to help in fulfilling the second half of the move at your destination. Because that company at your destination is also a United agent, we can be sure that they follow the same stringent training, safety and licensing regulations.
A number of things. First off, we're going to take a detailed inventory of your items. Then, we're going to make sure the goods that we're taking possession of are marked accordingly. A lot of that is done with a tablet now, so the driver or packer is going through and checking a sofa or chairs for stains, or any pre-existing marks and scratches, and making a note of it.
After making an inventory, we’re going to pad the furniture in the home. You should never see the furniture leaving the home unpadded. We're going to label boxes according to where they’re going. We’re not having to play a guessing game as we're opening a box, you will simply direct us to where the garage is, or where the children's rooms are.
A big part of what our Atlanta movers do to protect your goods is in loading the truck properly. It’s almost like a puzzle, and the tighter the better.
In the rare occurrence that you will have an issue, the first thing you would do is to get in touch with your move coordinator. The coordinator will work with you in getting the claim notification to you. It’s an electronic submission, so you're able to file it online, and at that point you'll be turned over to our claims team, who will bring your claim to a resolution.
Yes. We recommend you work with your home move coordinator to work on the dates but keep in mind the best thing to do is have some flexibility when it comes to pack and load dates. Because we schedule based on availability, certain days may be less expensive to move – for example, moving on a Thursday may be less expensive than moving on a Saturday. This is especially true during peak moving season, which is May through August. Our move coordinators will work closely with you to ensure we’re able to secure the move dates that best suit you and your family.
