Local Home Moving Made Easy
Our goal is to simplify the local moving process, all the way from the initial quote process through to the final delivery of your goods at your new home. With Suddath®, it starts with an easier estimate. You have the option to do a walkthrough virtually via a mobile device, or by scheduling an in-person walkthrough with one of our experienced representatives. Those two options allow you to choose whatever is most convenient for your schedule.
Throughout the moving process, you will have a Suddath move coordinator acting as your direct line to any details regarding your move. That person will be your single point of contact with everything related to your local move, giving you the peace of mind to focus on your new home.
A broad range of local home moving services to fit your unique needs. Most people don’t move very frequently. This means that as you’re beginning this process, you may not even know what your local moving needs are, or what is available to you. Suddath provides a broad range of local moving services that are flexible and customizable to your needs and budget. Your dedicated move coordinator will discuss your move and our services to help you develop a personalized plan that is tailored to you.

Suddath Moving is the best. If you are ever considering a move they are the ones to call. They did it all!. I didn’t have to do a thing and even tho I did, they loaded my packing up as well and delivered it all on time and in great shape.

Juriz Perez and Martell Fletcher two super professional and top notch workers.
The moving crew was excellent. They went out of their way to ensure everything was moved into our home efficiently and with great care. Would highly recommend Suddath.
Richard Patterson and his crew did an amazing job moving my things! They were professional, careful, quick! I highly recommend them for all your moving needs!
Absolutely impressed with this company, and the gentlemen who helped us move. It was a very large move. Took 9hrs but they were on top of everything. Things are properly packed and numbered. Will definitely be using them again!
Suddath, what an exceptional company. They are a well oiled machine. They are incredibly smooth from the quote to the delivery, and everything inbetween! David and Shannon have bene a pleasure to work with. Their teams know exactly what they are doing, and they have accomodated our crazy move schedule. We couldn’t have done this without all of you. Thank you!!!
Tampa/St. Petersburg, FL
Suddath offers the best and most comprehensive services. We were loaded, moved into storage for 9 months, then pulled and moved into our remodeled condo. The team of Alvaro, Carlos and Alexndro were friendly, fast, thorough and efficient. They took care to remove boxes as they were emptied, assembled beds and other furniture and left us in a great position. We could not be any happier with their service. Very highly recommended.

THE SUDDATH ADVANTAGE
250+ Hours of Mentored Crew Training
Our local moving team is the best trained in the industry. We believe that training should happen on our time, not yours, so after being background-checked, our crew is required to undergo over 250+ hours of mentored training prior to going out on a job.
We even have our own in-house training center, Suddath University, where we teach our packing, home protection and moving techniques.
Dedicated Move Coordinators
Each move is unique and requires specialized attention. That’s why each customer is assigned a move coordinator to manage the details, walk them through the process, and ensure that everyone is working from the same personalized plan on moving day.
Your move coordinator will work with you to ensure you have every service you need on moving day, and they can help facilitate any last-minute changes to ensure your move still goes smoothly.
Flexible, On-Demand Storage Services
We understand that moves – even local moves – do not always go according to plan. If your needs change suddenly, Suddath has the resources to easily accommodate for it. For example, if you decide you’d like to use our declutter service to stage your home and expedite its sale, we can quickly mobilize and temporarily store your items.
Our 3 million square feet of storage space across the country can quickly accommodate your storage needs, and your items during your local move will be stored in a climate-controlled space in a fully enclosed vault. When you’re ready for your stored items to be delivered to your new house, we will bring them right to your doorstep.
SPECIALIZED LOCAL MOVING SERVICES
Unique items or items that are particularly delicate, fragile or irregularly sized may require their own tailored, custom crates built to protect these types of items. Our team of experts will take measurements and build a crate to spec to ensure your items arrive safe an sound.

LOCAL MOVING FAQS
You are automatically covered at $0.60 per pound of your shipment, but for many items, this may not cover the full value. We always recommend you check with your homeowner’s insurance first for what you’re covered for under that. While we probably have the best-trained crews in the industry, having extra protection is something you should consider – we don’t think you’ll need it, but an educated consumer is a wise consumer.

All 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 go through your home with you, and assess what your different needs are. They will then give you a couple of options depending on what works best for you.
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. Because we have many different service levels, we can scale up or down to balance your needs with your budget.
Suddath has state-of-the-art facilities across the U.S. all outfitted with industry-leading security systems. 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. In either case, your items will be stored in a fully enclosed vault within a warehouse. With vault storage, our warehouse staff will pad wrap your valuables and carefully store them in the container.

The best security in terms of your home and belongings is a well-educated, well-trained driver. We train our drivers intensively through the Suddath University program, which is on-site in Jacksonville, FL.
As a 100-year-old trusted moving company, we use a combination of our own local employees and contractors. The contractors are full-time, 100% dedicated to us. There’s a vetting process for any crew member or driver, and we assess driving records, perform background checks, as well as assessing the number of years’ experience, safety records, and quality scores to determine eligibility to work with Suddath.
Once someone, employee or contractor, begins to work with us, we put them through over 250 hours of in-house Suddath University training to ensure they are current with our methods, as well as all industry standards. Learn more about our training and certifications, as well as Suddath University.

Plus, we offer a menu of flexible storage services—and, because we know that nothing in life is guaranteed to go according to plan (including local moves), if you discover you need storage, we’ve got the bandwidth and resources to easily accommodate your needs. When you’re ready for your household items in storage to be delivered, we’ll bring them right to your new home’s doorstep. Or, if you need to declutter your home of excess belongings to attractively stage it for sale, we’ll temporarily store those items for you.
Then there are our specialty services, which include your choice of packing and unpacking services: full services where we’ll take all the heavy lifting off of your shoulders; partial services where you decide which rooms/belongings should be packed by our expert local movers; or the budget friendly option with DIY resources.

Local moving is typically defined as a move that’s fifty miles or less in distance. For example, it could involve moving from a city to its suburbs (or vice versa) or from one town to an adjacent one and is generally completed in a day.
