TRUST GOES A LONG WAY
A HUGE shout out to Lindsey Sheffield who has been our contact to get our quote, international paperwork and uplift logistics sorted. She has been attentive, responsive and professional. Our move will proceed smoothly because of her upfront efforts.
Richard Reyes was very thorough, prompt and courteous while arranging and communicating our moving details.
The packers and the actual movers worked as a very efficient team to get my house packed up and loaded. They showed up on time and I think hustle is an understatement to how efficiently they unloaded. GREAT EXPERIENCE!!
Very attentive to details, quick to respond, and very courteous. The crew went out of their way to protect walls, furniture, floors, etc. Overall I’m very impressed.
Richard Reyes took care of everything and made the process super easy for me.
Everything was easy and transparent. Communication was also excellent.
My experience was very pleasant. Recommended!
My moving experience was great. Would recommend!
They did a great job!
PERSONALIZED LONG-DISTANCE MOVING
Dedicated Dallas Move Coordinators
Moving long distance is a stressful time in a person's life, and our goal is to simplify the moving process from the initial estimation process all the way to final delivery. Your single point of contact at Suddath will be dedicated to your move, helping you plan, managing details and freeing up your time so that you can attend to the personal aspects and life changes that come with moving long distance.
Your Suddath move coordinator will work with you to create a customized plan that aligns with your schedule and budget. Our experts will assess your move in order to help save you time and money, and to account for any special circumstances, like items that may require specialized equipment or packing preparation.
Safe and Secure Storage Options
With Suddath’s breadth of services, there is no need to panic or scramble when plans change. One element that often changes during the moving process is your storage needs. With our 148,000-square foot storage warehouse in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and similar facilities across the nation that equal over 3 million square feet of storage, we can accommodate short- and long-term storage needs quickly and efficiently.
Our storage facilities provide 24/7 monitoring and climate-controlled options to keep your household goods and valuables safe, even delicate items such as art or wine collections.
Broad Menu of Moving Services
Since 1992, we have served the Dallas-Fort Worth area with local and long-distance moving, building trust with our clients and the community. We also provide a broad range of specialized moving services:
- Concierge moving
- Declutter services for renovations or home staging
- Full and partial packing and unpacking
Our crews have been trained to handle any residential move, ranging from small apartments to large estates.
Packing Your Long-Distance Move
With our full-service packing team, you can get the assistance you need without any of the sweat equity. Our team uses only the best materials and techniques, and employs a background-checked, well-trained, professional moving and packing team.
We can assist with packing at any level to suit your needs and budget. We’re able to visit your home and quickly pack everything professionally, or partially pack only the items you need assistance with, leaving you to pack some items personally. Of course, DIY packing is always an option, and we will show up ready to quickly load up on moving day and get you on your way.
SPECIALIZED LONG-DISTANCE MOVING SERVICES
Some special pieces won’t fit in a standard cardboard box. Our team is trained to build custom crates for items that may require special care to ensure proper protection during transport. These could include antiques, fine art and wine.
Moving long-distances can be a stressful event for your pets. With Suddath and our trusted pet relocation partners, it doesn’t have to be. Work with your coordinator to create a special moving plan for your furry family member.
LONG-DISTANCE MOVING RESOURCES
DALLAS LONG-DISTANCE MOVING FAQ
Due diligence is key – in researching, referrals and ensuring the organization meets all compliance and regulation standards in the industry. The Better Business Bureau, user reviews from trusted sources such as Google, accreditations and positive recognition are all helpful resources. At a minimum, it is important to make sure that your Dallas moving company has a valid DOT number on the FMSCA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) official website, as this is a requirement for all commercial carrier vehicles.
Ask to see documentation for accreditations, certificates, and insurance policies. Confirm that they offer valuation coverage and understand the claims process for damaged and lost goods.
Insist on a walkthrough, whether in-person or via a virtual source. It is difficult to accurately estimate the costs and time needed to move a home sight unseen and most established moving companies will require a walkthrough prior to the move date. A moving company refusing to confirm a price range and avoiding specifics can be a red flag. If you need more tips for choosing a moving company , check out our blog.
With Suddath, we offer two options for an in-home survey of your home and your belongings to estimate your move. At your convenience and by your choice, our representative will perform either:
• An in-person home survey
• A virtual walkthrough
The virtual walkthrough can be done easily from your phone or tablet. This is a time-saving option for many customers. Early in the morning, or perhaps after work, you can pick a time that is convenient for you with little interruptions where a representative can survey your home using an application similar to FaceTime or Skype. As you guide a move coordinator through your home, we can ask the necessary questions, take important notes and identify potential unique circumstance that a crew may encounter on moving day that we can plan for. The more we can plan, the better we can save time and increase efficiencies for a successful move.
With either option, Suddath will be able to provide accurate moving logistics, and provide you with a detailed, itemized and finalized moving quote.
Our first order of business is to complete a detailed inventory of your items. The virtual or in-house walkthrough will help with that. We will pack and log all items, noting any existing damages or special indicators attributed to your items so that we have a record of their condition prior to the move. We will then create a catalog of your items with box labels and markers for room locations.
As actual moving gets underway, we will follow our procedures for home protection to cover floors, protect doors, pad furniture, etc. and then systematically begin emptying the contents of your home into our moving vehicles. The items will be loaded into the truck carefully, and tightly, so as to avoid any shifting while traveling. As road travel begins, our support staff will continue to monitor the trip for timing and keep track of the items digitally.
