Dedicated Local Moving Coordinators

Throughout every step of your local move, you will be personally assisted by a dedicated professional move coordinator. They will provide the transparency and planning needed ensure that your home, family, and household goods are safe and treated with care.

Your local move coordinator will serve as your one call for any need, question or assistance you may have. They will ensure that on moving day, everyone is working from the same moving plan to avoid issues and stress. With L.A. traffic, this extra attention to detail and planning – and ensuring a moving schedule is stuck to – is important in making sure your local move goes smoothly. 

Easy Move Survey and Estimate

The first step in your local moving process is to schedule a walkthrough with one of our coordinators. Suddath makes it easy and convenient for you, offering virtual or in-home walkthroughs. In the virtual walkthrough, you are able to guide your move coordinator through the home using only your smart device. During either process, our team will analyze your belongings to provide you with an accurate moving quote based on the local moving services you choose. 

During this meeting, your move coordinator can answer all of your questions about the packing, loading, and unloading process. They will also provide you with details about all of the local moving services we offer so that you can get everything you need and nothing you don’t.

Packing and Unpacking to Suit Your Needs

For some customers, packing up their home is the most stressful part of a local relocation, or are simply too busy to pack up their entire home by hand. Suddath can handle all of the packing for you with our full-packing service. For customers who enjoy the packing and unpacking process and want a DIY experience, Suddath will arrive to load and unload all your personally packed boxes. For anyone in between, we have a partial packing service and will pack only what you need.

Flexible Declutter and Storage Service

We designed our declutter and storage service to help customers who want to store certain items while their home is being staged for resale, or simply if you need to off-load some items while you’re in the process of packing. It is also an excellent program for those who want to downsize what they will be moving to their new location. If you need to make room for smaller closets or want a minimalist lifestyle in your new home, this program will help you inventory the contents of your home.

We can also assist you with any short or long-term storage needs during your local move in our 130,000 square foot warehouse.

LOS ANGELES LOCAL MOVING FAQ

What is valuation coverage?

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.

How far in advance should I start my local move in Los Angeles?

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.

What if you break something during my local move, what is the claims process like?

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.

What do you do to ensure quality and customer satisfaction during my local move?

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.
