AUSTIN MOVING FAQ
Typically yes. During “peak moving” season, which runs from about May through September, we advise that you book your move as soon as possible if you need a specific date. But typically, Suddath has the resources and crew members to be able to accommodate most moving dates.
Your move coordinator will walk you through the scheduling and timing for your move. Especially when you’re booking an interstate move, pricing can vary depending on the size of your move, and what date you’ll be moving on. It’s helpful to know that pricing for a move is kind of like buying a plane ticket – we’re a capacity-based industry, so being flexible, so booking on less desirable dates, like a Tuesday or Wednesday, and booking early can be a money saver.
With a local move, your items will be delivered the same day, unless otherwise outlined by you and your moving team.
With a long-distance move, you will be provided a delivery spread. Long distance moving vans may have other stops to make on their route to your new home, and there are Department of Transportation restrictions that prohibit us from traveling a certain way. This means that moving companies are unable to “follow” you to your new home. There are constraints when it comes to time on the road and mileage, so if you want to load in Austin today and deliver in California a few days from now, it’s unfortunately not possible. Likely, you will get a date a couple to a few weeks from your loading date.
For an international move, the timeline will depend on the country you are moving to, as the customs process and backlog can vary wildly depending on location. We will evaluate your items during a home survey and determine if it needs to be shipped via air or ocean freight, and from there, we can give you an estimate on delivery.
You’re entitled to valuation coverage with your move, but it’s important to know that it’s relative to what you are moving. Valuation coverage is NOT insurance and is provided by the mover and covers items by weight. For Suddath, a 60 cents per pound valuation coverage is standard and included with your move.
What that means though, is that a heavy, expensive antique would be covered the exact same as a heavy, inexpensive item. Obviously, many people want items to be insured by replacement value, so you may want to look into traditional insurance.
Many people think that their homeowner’s coverage covers their household goods during a move, but more often than not, it doesn’t. You need to ask your Austin homeowner’s insurance company ahead of your move what kind of coverage they’ll offer or look into specific special coverage for certain items you’re concerned about.
Yes, we can. We can transport vehicles locally, interstate and internationally. We offer either enclosed carriers or open carriers for your vehicle. The cost will vary depending on the type of carrier you choose, and your need. Your move coordinator can walk you through the cost, and the different options that would fit into your budget.
An important detail that you may not know is that moves are based on weight. This means that it is important to purge and donate everything that you do not need or things that can be easily replaced, ahead of your move.
Things like canned food, magazines, boxes upon boxes of papers and files can be replaced, recycled and digitized instead of paying unnecessarily to bring them with you.
There are so many tips and tricks like that that you should be doing in the weeks leading up to your move, and Suddath offers a moving checklist that details what you should be doing or thinking about as your move approaches.
With our industry-leading training and processes, it is rare that issues occur, but when they do, let your move coordinator right away. Also, document it by taking pictures of it at the time you discover it. You have plenty of time to file a claim, so document as you unpack. Never throw away or discard of anything broken unless your move coordinator tells you it is ok to do so.
Yes. We are very well-versed and experienced in international moves in Austin. We move 16,000 people internationally every year, and have strong locations, partnerships and relationships all over the world, tons of partner agents and we can move anybody anywhere they need to go.
There are a lot of moving companies in Austin, but none of them have the breadth of service, training or experience that Suddath does. Our team is able to offer options for your move – what day you want to move, the services you’ll need, and the experience our crew has. Suddath is the leading moving company in Austin because of our team – everyone is expertly trained and background-checked – and we can professionally service all moving needs. We are able to assist in local moving, interstate moving, as well as international and the ability to store your goods as well as handle any specialty items with care, such as pianos.
Absolutely. You can store your items with us short term, or for long term. For interstate moves, short-term storage caps at 180 days, which is something you should keep in mind and discuss with your move coordinator if storage is a need for you. In either case, your items are stored in a fully enclosed, secured vault within our Austin warehouse, carefully padded, labelled and tracked electronically.
