TRUST GOES A LONG WAY
These guys were on it! They have moving down to a science. Our coordinator (Brandi) was in constant contact both before, during, and after our move. Everything was packed and loaded on the day they scheduled and arrived within the projected window (including shipping a car). A great experience.

Suddath made my move cross country effortless. The team on both ends were fabulous. My coordinator, Brenda, was the absolute best. She was on top of everything and had answers to all my questions. Would recommend Suddath to everyone.

Out of three prospective moving companies to choose from, I’m glad I chose Suddath to handle our move from Anaheim, CA to Columbus, OH. JOAQUIN GUZMAN did a terrific job of getting our move done on schedule. He consistently updated me on every move. He was also very honest and upfront. Additionally, I need to mention TERESA FORD who coordinated the move from the time the packing took place up to the moment when the movers were unloading the truck at our new location. She is really good at her job. Now both of them are working to see if the name on the billing invoice can be corrected. We’ll see how the billing department responds to this. To both Joaquin Guzman and Teresa Ford, you have exceeded all my expectations on the level of customer satisfaction. Thank you!

I’ve done two moves in the last four months with Suddath. Joaquin Guzman had been my consultant for the most recent one. He handled everything efficiently and kept in constant communication with me. Given that I could not be on the pickup end, I really appreciated that. Across both moves, I found everyone at Suddath, from the consultants, to the drivers, and the crews, helpful, polite, communicative, and careful with our furniture and belongings. I call them first for this move because they had been so great on by move in June. If I had to do it again, I would go with them again.

This was only the second time that I have used professional movers and this was an outstanding experience. Joaquin started it off with the virtual tour of the house and a great quote. I was helped along the way by Teresa Ford who called to check on us. Then the day the trucks arrived, driver Tony and his crew jumped into action and we learned quickly not to stand around in the way, otherwise we would get a tag placed on our forehead and someone would carry us to the truck. The guys were fantastic and had everything packed up and out of La Verne by 4:00 pm. We took off for AZ and they met us at the new house two days later and were unloading the contents into the new home at the same rate as the packing. They were completed by about 4:00 again and we’ve been putting “stuff” away ever since. Great move and this was my last move I hope! But if there is ever another, we will be giving Joaquin a call. Thanks guys!

The HHG delivery team from Suddath was amazing. They all came motivated, friendly and ready to get the job done properly and in a time efficient manner. The team included: Daniel Gonzales, Jordan Hylind, Noe Mendoza, David Reyes, Marcos Gomez and Brandon Boyd. The team was very knowledgable and experienced. They handled every obstacle and were sensitive to our families input. I would recommend this team and very happy with our military move from Fairbanks AK to Mountain View, California.

Joaquin Guzman was the intitial contact. He was very professional and customer service oriented. His ability and response to answer any and all questions, night or day, convinced me that Suddath was the moving company for me. The move from start to finish went very well and there was always someone to contact, if not Joaquin, then other members of the team. The response and support that was given by Suddath during the move was excellent. What stood out is that the schedule and times that we designated were honored and implemented. This was a long distance move and I had many questions, during the transition, but everyone was very patient, kind and caring, including Richard Reyes. I have recommend Suddath to many others who are looking for reliable and responsible movers. I cannot give enough kudos about Joaquin as his professionalism along with his over-all concern about everything involved in our move was exceptional; he always went over and beyond what was expected. United and Suddath are lucky to have him as well as Richard.

I started my experience with Joaquin Guzman. He did my virtual tour and pricing. He was fantastic to work with and was quick to get back to me when I questions. The next person I had was Richard Reyes. Richard was amazing to work with. He was always keeping me updated on my timeline. I experienced a family tragedy right before my move and he was there to guide me through the process and allow me to have a comfort that my move would go flawlessly, which it did. I appreciated his kindness and compassion more than he can imagine. My driver, (I believe his name was Brett)I cannot say enough great things about him and his helper. Brett was in constant contact with me regarding the time of delivery. They were right on time and had our items unloaded and set up in record time. They were so professional and worked so hard! All of our items arrived and not one broken item! Thank you to everyone involved for making this long move so painless for us.

LOS ANGELES LOCAL MOVING FAQ
The most important thing to highlight upfront is that valuation coverage is not insurance. Local moving customers who want insurance for their move will need to work through a licensed insurance company. Local moving companies are required to offer you valuation coverage. If a local moving company fails to do so, it may be a sign that they are a disreputable, fly-by-night or “rogue” mover.
Valuation coverage is what local moving customers get through their local moving company in Los Angeles. Simply put, valuation coverage is an agreement that is completed before your move begins. In this agreement, you and your moving company detail liability for claims of damaged or lost items. If the local moving company is at fault for the loss or damage of your items, the valuation coverage guarantees that the moving company pays for those items. For example, Suddath offers standard Released Value Protection (RVP) valuation coverage at $0.60 per pound of your shipment.
When preparing for your local move here in L.A., make sure you evaluate whether or not you want to insure your items through an insurance company. If you have more specific questions about insurance and valuation coverage, your local moving coordinator will be happy to help.
Learn more about your valuation coverage options in our blog post on the subject.
In an ideal situation, we recommend beginning the move process no later than two months before your desired move date. This will give you plenty of time to evaluate which items you’d like to take with you and which items you’ll sell with your home or donate, as well as time to vet the best local moving companies in Los Angeles. It also gives you a slight buffer of time to accommodate any unexpected changes in your moving plans.
Have less time than that before you need to move? You’re in the right place. Suddath has over 100 years of experience helping families move long distances. We can help you navigate your timeline with an optimized move plan.
It is our goal to make sure that the belongings we move for you always make it to their destination safely. It is quite rare that a Suddath local moving customer experiences any lost or damaged property issues.
In the rare case that one of your items is damaged, your Suddath local move coordinator will provide a claim form and walk you through each step of documenting your broken items. Once the form is completed, your coordinator will have a claims representative will reach out to you within 24 hours.
Our L.A. local movers also must complete our own a separate program at Suddath University where local and long-distance drivers spend a week in intensive training on-location with our own curriculum.
At Suddath University, there are multiple training rooms with different labs for technology, process training, and soft skills training. There is even a pre-fab apartment built into the warehouse where drivers must utilize their training for packing and loading containerized shipments. The program helps our Los Angeles local movers excel at customer service while they’re executing your move.
