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.

Tampa/St. Petersburg, FL
This was my first long-distance move and I’m happy to say that it went very smoothly. Joaquin Guzman provided me with stellar service from beginning to end. He provided me with an accurate quote based on a video walk-through of my home. He answered all of my questions in a timely manner and with utmost professionalism. When the delivery date of my belongings looked like it was going to be delayed longer than anticipated, both Joaquin and move coordinator Dianna Smoltz sprung into action and managed to secure a firm delivery date within the promised delivery window. That was a huge relief and I’m very appreciative of all of their help. Overall, I can’t imagine my interstate move going any better or smoother than it actually did. I’m very happy and satisfied with the service I received from everyone at United Van Lines and Suddath. I’ll definitely use their services again the next time I need to move my entire household.

Simply amazing! Three very professional employees working relentlessly to get my house set up.
From Deb Hicks to Madison Newmes to Bill ( the driver), it was my easiest move ever and I have transferred over 7 times. This being the first time I moved myself, I was very pleasantly surprised at how efficient and easy it went. Highly satisfied customer, thank you

LOCAL HOME MOVING FAQ
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.
