Fort Lauderdale International Mover FAQ

When should I start preparing for a move to or from Fort Lauderdale to an international location?

Fort Lauderdale is a busy moving market in general. We recommend starting as early as possible for an international move – in some cases 8-12 weeks – especially for US residents if attempting to move during the summer months, which is the busiest time in the moving industry. A great resource is our moving overseas checklist, which prompts you to take action at various time intervals, suggesting what documents to gather, when to schedule services, and what to prepare for any regulatory issues, which are often more involved when moving abroad. Our overseas moving specialists in Fort Lauderdale will be available every step of the way.

Does the Suddath team in Fort Lauderdale have significant international moving experience?

Yes, Suddath international move teams are highly experienced with over 10,000 internationals moves per year, and have a dedicated International Residential Moving team, focused primarily on delivering excellence in the global relocation space. Particularly in South Florida, we see a high volume of overseas relocation. We are experienced in customs, delays at ports, drayage companies, companies that bring containers to and from the port to the warehouse and so forth. We are also adept at collaborating with international business agents and understanding their practices, while maintain excellent communication with all parties throughout the duration of the international move process.

How do I choose an international moving company?

Through research, reviews and reputation. It is important to interview several international moving companies, guided by a list of your most important requirements, to make sure they can exceed them. Ensuring that they have the appropriate licensing and certifications is another factor – there are certain designations that a reputable overseas moving company will possess, including specialized international designations.

We have a great article that offers tips on how to research and select a moving company. In Fort Lauderdale, this is particularly important. It has been all too common to hear stories in our area about moving companies with suspect business practices. Vetting your overseas moving company is of the utmost importance; moving crews will be in your home and handling your belongings, so following safety standards is paramount.
