TRUST GOES A LONG WAY
we had a wonderful experience with our packing team. Efficient, hard working, and friendly. They made the day a whole lot less stressful. They couldn’t have been better.
Communicated well, organized and helped us through the process. Thank you for helping us pack our home.
Our move could not have gone more smoothly. Andrea and her packing crew did an amazing job. Bill, Alfonzo, and Pete got it all loaded, transported, and unloaded without skipping a beat. Although this is allegedly our last move, we know who to call if this changes.
Mellissa and Andy were fantastic and speedy! Thank you!!
Moving is stressful, but the professional and detailed team at Suddath made it much easier. Our move coordinator, Kristin, checked in prior to and during to ensure everything was going well and answer questions and Juan and Justin were on time, professional and took great care of our belongings and furniture, despite it being one of the hottest days of the year! Couldn’t have asked for a better team during such nerve-wracking time.
Excellent, excellent, EXCELLENT!!! The crew arrived on time and immediately went to work. They were very careful with my furniture, etc. I would love to have the same crew on my next move in November. I have used Suddath before, and I will always recommend them and use them. THANKS Chris, Chris and Chad!

Great service, very fast and thorough movers. Thanks Andrea!
Best movers we have had in 5 military moves! Really fast, thorough, and great team! Really fortunate to have Andrea, thanks!
INTERNATIONAL MOVING SERVICES
When planning a move abroad with our Jacksonville international movers, we ensure that you start off on the right foot, reviewing every procedure along the way. An important first step is to have to the right plan in place for execution. A Suddath team member will thoroughly assess your home via an in-person survey or a virtual walkthrough, to help prepare an accurate estimate and outline for your move. For international moves in particular, careful attention is paid to size and type of items in your home, as shipping regulations may dictate how and what gets moved. Your dedicated Suddath coordinator will help prepare and organize all the documentation and procedures needed to make your exciting move from Jacksonville to an international destination as stress-free as possible.
Prepping for Customs
When moving abroad to or from Jacksonville, you must comply with different regulations upon entering your new destination, particularly through the customs process. With certifications such as Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), Suddath international movers are committed to following all compliance and security measures to the high standards expected by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. This certification and other steps taken by Suddath to prepare your household inventory for international relocation are just a few of the qualifications that set Suddath apart in the industry as a top choice for international moving.
For overseas moves, Suddath carefully evaluates the best methods to transport your belongings between Jacksonville and your overseas destination. Distance, waterways and potentially the lack of roads to an international destination, will all be considered as Suddath professionals plan a moving route that will use a combination of land, sea and air shipping procedures to safely and securely move your belongings. Your Suddath coordinator will determine the best method for transporting these items, taking into consideration, weight, volume, destination, costs and more.
Packing Options and Storage Solutions
Since no two overseas moves are alike, we offer a wide range of packing and storage solutions to fit any budget and timing needs, particularly when it applies to international moves. With our full-service packing option, we pack all the belongings in your home which gives you more free time to prepare for life in a new international location. We also offer partial packing and DIY packing solutions that may help offset costs during the moving process.

Jacksonville International Movers FAQ
First, it is important to research international moving companies to ensure that you partner with the best one to fit your needs. Not all moving companies are true international movers. Companies that are accredited and recognized by reputable organizations, like the International Association of Movers (IAM) or certified in Customs regulations through Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), are good examples of overseas movers that are dedicated to executing quality international relocations. Once you have selected an international moving company, putting a plan in place is key. Our ultimate overseas moving checklist is a great springboard to planning your international move. By breaking down each part of the process into manageable segments, we help make an international move stress-free and efficient. Plus, at Suddath we assign a dedicated moving coordinator for every move so that you have an expert by your side, guiding the process the entire time.
As a 5-time EMMA Award Winner for International Moving Company of the Year, Suddath is not your standard domestic mover who sometimes performs international moves. We are highly experienced with over 10,000 internationals moves per year, and a dedicated International Residential Moving team, focused primarily on delivering excellence in the global relocation space. For our Jacksonville team, international moving is one of our specialties, particularly in corporate relocations overseas, and we have dedicated move coordinators to guide our customers through the entire process.
For moves abroad in particular, you may want to consider obtaining specialty insurance coverage geared towards international move protection. Before signing a moving contract, understand exactly what your overseas moving company offers and have them take you through the types of valuation coverage.
At Suddath, we offer what is called valuation coverage, which is federally mandated, and depending on the level you select, will offer a specified payment for items that are deemed damaged by the international mover. It is important to discuss coverage options with your move coordinator if you would like to shop for a plan as overseas moving companies cannot lawfully sell insurance plans; a third-party provider would be required.
