TRUST GOES A LONG WAY
they showed up on time, were efficient, worked as all business, had supplies…good job
I recently had Suddath moving move my business to a new location and I could not be happier with their service. They came to my office a few days early and supplied us with boxes and came early the day of the move. The move was a success and the movers were punctual and I think they did a great job with the move and even finished earlier than expected.
Elaine was a pleasure to work with through my relocation process. She was always very prompt to reply and was consistent with following up with phone calls and emails. My work schedule was extremely busy leading up to my relocation so I was not always responsive or available to take phone calls or answer emails. She was very patient and understanding with this and still made the moving process easy and convenient. I really appreciate her assistance during our relocation from Detroit to Florida.
Michael N’s team did a great job. Fast and professional. Will call again next time
Michael, John, and Regan – Great work! Excellent service and experience.
Great work! Excellent service and experience.
good afternoon. i wanted to pass on my extreme satisfaction with your company and, most importantly, your employees – bruce smith, bonnie bottini and the movers kevin and devon. i literally made a phone call and they took it from there. bruce was EXTREMELY responsive at a moment’s notice. his attention to detail and his fast response time was important and most helpful. nothing, absolutely NOTHING fell through the cracks. bonnie was most prompt in her customer service and held my hand during the entire process. kevin and devon were as kind and polite and helpful and thoughtful as could be. they wouldn’t leave until we practically had to kick them out. they wanted to make sure EVERYTHING was finished. i will recommend this team any chance i get!
Darren and Kevin were great! Very professional and efficient. Highly recommend and would hire their services again.
