Professional International Moving Company with a Personal Touch

Trusted international movers since 1919. Moving internationally can be exciting, but also complex and daunting. At Suddath®, we simplify your overseas move by providing a one-stop-shop for all your international moving needs, supported by professional, dedicated move counselors who personally manage every step of the way. We break down processes into easy-to-manage parts, keeping you both on budget and on time. By making international relocation easier, you’re free to focus more on your new destination, while worrying less about the move.

Trusted since 1919 to deliver dependable, high-quality service, Suddath successfully performs over 16,000 international moves and 54,000 domestic moves each year. Unlike many moving companies that offer international moving services, we are true international movers, NOT domestic movers that perform international moves. With a broad range of services and extensive global reach to nearly every country in the world, we get you where and when you need to go, using our network of vetted, well-established partners.

Suddath is a 5-time International Mover of the Year winner. This accolade was awarded through the FEM Americas Expatriate Management & Mobility Awards (EMMAs) in 2019 and previously won in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2018. The award highlights Suddath’s commitment to having a positive impact on our partners’ business priorities through innovations, improvements and a dedicated focus on transferee experience.

Competitive, Accurate and Transparent International Move Pricing

With Suddath, you can always expect competitive and affordable pricing with full cost visibility and no hidden fees. We differ from other international moving companies in that we control all aspects of the move and don’t outsource move management to middlemen. This helps save you money while providing industry-leading pricing transparency and cost granularity at every stage of the move.

We also have negotiated rates and lanes contracted with trusted, professional providers, and will always fight for you on any vendor charges that weren’t in the original scope.

We know that every move is unique. Suddath takes a personalized approach with our customers, offering options to keep you both on time and on budget, while providing guidance and visibility every step of the way. Our broad range of services go above and beyond that of typical international moving companies and can be customized to fit your unique needs.

Lastly, unlike many operators in our industry, we are financially stable and pay our bills on time, ensuring that none of your items will be held up due to unpaid invoices from any of our agent partners.


Document Preparation

Before your international move, a survey will be conducted by an experienced Suddath representative. To assist in document preparation and determine the accurate volume and weight of your overseas move, we follow a transparent, step-by-step process.

How much will my items cost to ship overseas?

Overseas shipping costs can include taxes, customs payments and the cost of other required paperwork. If you can’t afford to ship a particular item, consider a storage unit or warehouse. If using a warehouse, there’s always the possibility of shipping the item later.

What certifications should my international mover have?

Top international movers will hold specific licenses and certifications that support their expertise in international moving and shipping procedures and will provide highly trained coordinators to manage the process with you.

In the United States, for instance, one such certification is the Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) certification, offered through the US Department of Homeland Security. C-TPAT is a voluntary program that demonstrates a commitment to securely and accurately moving your goods based on the standards of U.S. Custom and Border Protection. Most providers specializing in international moves will also offer service-level-agreements (SLAs) designed specifically to moves abroad that will outline all aspects of your move process, as well as protection coverage options.

This type of enhanced planning will also help you identify what may and may not be allowed to be transported to your destination country. There are regulations and restrictions related to certain items, like electronics, appliances and more, especially in terms of the customs review process. An experienced move coordinator will assist you in understanding the documentation and requirements needed for seamless transport.

For example, while Suddath can’t obtain documents on your behalf, we do work with our overseas partners to clarify and simplify the requirements for you to get them. You would then submit the documents to us, and we obtain the clearance.

Can you help me pack and stage my home?

Yes! Since home staging has become more common – 95% of people use the internet to home search, so helping your home show well online with beautiful pictures and even virtual tours is key – our Declutter & Store Program has become very popular. It allows people who need cost-effective temporary storage for home projects like staging or remodeling an easy, safe and secure option. Our professional drivers and movers make load and pack your excess items into one or more of our storage vaults. We then store your items in our climate-controlled warehouse until you need them delivered.

This is a flexible and affordable service that helps attract buyers and ultimately sell their home quickly –  83% of buyers’ agents said staging a home made it easier for a buyer to visualize the property as a future home, according to the National Association of Realtors.
