Trust Goes a Long Way
Chad and his crew (Fred, Carl, and Chris) did an amazing job helping with my move. They arrived on time and got to work immediately. My apartment was on the third floor with no elevator. They were careful with every box and piece of furniture. The truck was packed full but very organized. When they arrived at my new house, they were thoughtful as to where exactly I wanted the boxes and furniture. All pieces that needed to be dismantled were put back together properly. The entire crew was friendly, helpful, and hard working. I would absolutely request this group for any future moves of my own or to other friends and family.
From Dennise in the office to the delivery team, especially *Chad and team* – we had a wonderful experience, as always. Looking forward to working together many more times in the future. Thank you
I am extremely thankful for all the help with my transfer and move from Illinois to Virginia. I know that working with active duty personnel can be hard and I am grateful that my process was made easy by Suddath. I am glad great and awesome people are out there to help us with this complicated transition. Great service, great resources, great personnel. Bobbie Robson thank you very much. Sarah Minshew thank you very much.
Damon and Ray did an excellent job today. Their professionalism, care, and efficiency were outstanding. Thank you!!🤩
This company was by far one of the best that our firm has used to move. Thomas, Henry and Andrea and their crew came and handled everything! If they had questions, they asked and were in constant communication with us and were courteous, fast and efficient. They took care of everything. They worked hard and had both trucks loaded and unloaded in no time. They are true professionals and I highly recommend them. It was a great experience.
We move a lot and this last moving company and crew by far were the best! Ray and Damon were fantastic from start to finish very personable, and very willing to help move some thing if I changed my mind.
Melissa and crew showed up at my door and told me to go relax. They took care of everything. They worked so hard and got the truck packed up in no time. True professionals. Melissa went through the check list at the end. Great experience during a stressful time. Thank you Melissa and crew.
We had a great experience with a complicated move of office furniture. Special thanks to Malcolm who was a master at putting everything back together. Jamal and Andrea were great too. Highly recommend.
The delivery was amazing all the guys that were here dropping off my stuff went above and beyond to make sure everything was there and made sure to help me out with everything before they left. Walked me through the paperwork and made sure if I had any questions or issues they would be met. These guys made my move to Jacksonville so much easier!

JACKSONVILLE MOVING FAQ
We always recommend you check with your homeowner’s insurance first. While we probably have the best-trained crews in the industry, you have to consider the rain and the elements that we have in Jacksonville, Florida. It’s something you should consider – we don’t think you’ll need it, but an educated consumer is a wise consumer. If you’d like to learn more about valuation coverage, read our blog on the topic.
You can choose any day to load your things. However, for the delivery, remember that typically we’re going to need a choice of several days, depending on how far you’re moving.
Educating yourself on the web is always a good option – our website has a lot of materials to help you move, such as a moving checklist, no matter if you’re an individual moving locally within Jacksonville, internationally, or a business. Our sales reps also act as professional consultants, and they’ll provide you with tips on how to either keep the costs down, or to take the stress out of the move.
All of the estimates are no-cost and no-obligation. Whether you call-in or use our option for a virtual walkthrough using your smartphone, a salesperson will look at what your needs are, and then give you a couple of choices. An example would be a ‘not to exceed’ or a flat rate. We look at your move, your budget, the particulars of your move, and then we present what we think is going to work best for you.
The best security in terms of your goods is a well-educated, well-trained driver. We train our drivers intensively through the Suddath University program, which is on-site in Jacksonville.
As a Jacksonville moving company, we use a combination of our own employees and contractors. The contractors are full-time, 100% dedicated to us. We grow our own, which is the best way to do it, and because of our prominence in the market, training and overall investment in our people, the best come to us. We’re very selective about who we let join our Jacksonville mover’s team.
There’s a vetting process where we’re looking at their driving record, background, the number of years’ experience, safety records, the quality scores, all of those things to determine if they have the right stuff to join the team.
As a local Jacksonville moving company, Suddath is basically a one-stop-shop. We can help you find the realtor; we can give you the moving estimates that fit your budget, we can give you the packing materials, informational videos and more. We’re a very consultative organization and provide support and visibility to your items every step of the way. We are not a high-pressure sale and, more than anything, we can make sure that our Jacksonville movers have the empathy and experience to work with you in what can be a challenging process.
We have a state-of-the-art 155,000-square foot facility with probably the best security system in Jacksonville. We have ambient storage, we have climate-controlled storage. We have a variety of options that will allow someone to work within their budget and make sure that if there are any special requirements, we have the logistical ability to handle it.
The main difference between short and long-term, or permanent, storage is the timeframe in which your household items will be stored. It’s important to remember that for interstate moves, your storage time may cap at 180 days. In either case, your items will be stored in a fully-enclosed vault within a warehouse in Jacksonville. With vault storage, our warehouse staff will pad wrap your valuables and carefully store them in the container.
Move for Hunger is a free service and program in which Suddath takes nonperishable food that you’re not bringing with you on your move and delivers it to local food banks. We also work with HabiJax, and several other charitable organizations so that if there is furniture you want to donate, we can put you in touch, or handle that on your behalf.
Customer satisfaction and quality emanate from several key functions. One is properly selecting the people that we think can provide an exceptional experience because of their ability to develop their soft skills. Part of it is our Suddath University training center, because we believe that training should happen at our facility, not inside of your home.
Another part of it is certainly the quality control personnel that are out there in the field who are stopping by to see how things are going, and part of it is our survey and feedback process so that we can take what you’ve shared with us and incorporate it into our training, and address anything if there is a need for that.
We are the primary office mover here in Jacksonville. We have many large local businesses who use us exclusively, that’s one part of our business, and on the other hand, we handle operations like medical facilities, smaller office buildings, law firms, and more.
Our Hospitality Logistics team is equipped to help with all phases of your hotel remodel, and even new construction. We offer services such as project management, warehousing and distribution/sequencing, FF&E installation and transportation management. We service everything from business-class hotel chains like the Hilton Garden Inn to large international resorts, like Baha Mar in the Bahamas. Since we have locations in nearly every major market, we are able to provide cost savings of up to 40% in Suddath markets compared to non-asset-based providers Suddath also offers installation services and project management which work hand-in-hand to ensure your project is installed properly, on time and on budget.
