HOUSTON MOVING FAQ
We provide two options for a full home estimate, and that is both an in-person and a virtual walkthrough, which can be done from your phone or tablet.
An in-home survey allows us to be able to come in during a scheduled time and walk the property with you in person. You will meet a Suddath representative, ask them questions, and explain your move and needs in detail.
During a virtual walkthrough, you will set up a time for a video chat with a Suddath representative, and simply log in from your phone or tablet. The same as with the in-person walkthrough, you will take them through your home, and answer any questions they may have about your home or your move.
Either one will give you a thorough and accurate quote, so you can’t go wrong when it comes to meeting your needs.
The key to move prep is giving yourself time. If you can, we recommend starting organizing your move up to eight weeks early. Not only will this mean that by the time moving day rolls around you’ll have everything in order, but you’ll also have your pick of the best moving companies in Houston.
As you organize, you should be going through a moving checklist and categorizing what you’re taking by what room it will go into. This will make everything easy for you and the movers, so they’ll know exactly where to place things. You can even color code by room with tape or sharpie colors.
One thing many people don’t think about is organizing everything you don’t want the movers to take. Anything from your child’s favorite toy, to important medication or documents that you will be taking with you, should be organized ahead of time and ideally placed in your car prior to moving day. Some people also place these items in a linen closet or other area where movers are instructed not to go. All of this ensures these important items won’t accidentally get packed and loaded on moving day.
Preparation is important because our crews do this every day and are trained to follow a certain process. When they arrive, they are ready to execute so that the move can go smoothly and stay on schedule. This can mean that if you’re not prepared, it can drastically throw off the schedule and make moving more chaotic and improvised than it should to be.
In our process, the team leader is going to greet you, come in and tour the home to go over everything, and while this is happening, the crew will be busy laying down necessary home protection such as floor, door and wall protection. It can feel like a lot happening very quickly, so preparation goes a long way.
Typically, yes. Suddath has broader resources than most local moving companies, which means we typically have the crew and equipment to meet most moving day requests. However, during peak moving season (May through September) we recommend reaching out as soon as possible, as some more popular dates – a weekend at the end of the month, for example – do fill up.
We invest a lot into training our crews, as well as in using top of the line packing materials and equipment. However, accidents do happen when moving, and 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.
To start off with, we make a detailed inventory of your home. Especially if you got a virtual video estimate, you have a record of all of your items. We recommend you take your own videos of your home and important items as well. Then, the driver or packers do a quick once over to check items for pre-existing damage and makes a note of it digitally.
After making an inventory, the crew is going to pad the furniture in the home. You should never see your furniture leaving home unpadded. From there, boxes will be labeled according to where they are going in your new home. This ensures a quick and easy process for unloading as well.
We find that training and consistent processes are our biggest allies when it comes to making sure a move is safe and secure for the items and people involved.
Absolutely. We provide professional long or short-term storage for both household goods and commercial goods for office moves. Our local Houston warehouse is climate-controlled and we are able to safely store your goods until you need them again. Ask your move coordinator for more details on how we can help meet your storage needs.
Our employees are IOMI® certified, (International Office Mover Institute) so they have been through the proper training. Whether that be a coordinator, a salesperson, or the crew that’s going out and performing the move, they all have been through the certification process.
Another big differentiator is the technology that Suddath has when it comes to the patent-pending Telescio® Estimator technology platform that the sales team uses and how they’re able to produce quotes now. It’s much clearer and easier for the customer to understand.
Our industry-leading, propriety Tracker technology answers questions with the touch of a button such as: ‘how far along are we? We’re on a 300 person move, how many of them have been moved so far? How many computers are set back up? How many have been disconnected? How long do we have to go?’
Tracker tells you real-time who’s been loaded up, who’s in transit and who’s been delivered and set back up. So if you’re a project manager for a company, you can see real-time results that show you how the move is progressing.
There really isn’t much Suddath can’t do when it comes to commercial office moving. Our teams can move, warehouse, do installs, space planning, we can offer project management services, MAC work (Moves Adds Change), all the way through to decommissioning your unwanted items.
Part of what makes Suddath unique is the fact that our crews can call upon resources and experience from other areas of the company, which makes us able to handle anything that needs moving. We’ve been around for 100 years, and in that time, we’ve moved everything from rocket fuel to Egyptian relics. We’re built to handle moving anything.
