LUBBOCK MOVING FAQ
It can be relative to what you’re shipping. A lot of people think that their homeowner’s coverage covers their household goods during a move, but more often than not, it doesn’t. You need to ask the question of your Lubbock homeowner’s insurance company, but I always tell people it’s better to have it just in case.
The key to valuation is selecting the right amount of coverage. Again, use your homeowner’s policy as a guideline. If you know if your homeowner’s insurance is for $80,000, use that number as a guiding point, or else base it on the weight and value of what you’re moving.
Keep in mind that there is a basic coverage already included in your move with Suddath, which works out to be 60 cents per pound, but it all depends are how you value your goods and what the level of risk is for what you’re shipping.
Yes, we can. We can transport vehicles locally, interstate and internationally. We offer either enclosed carriers or open carriers for your vehicle. Prices vary obviously, depending on the type of carrier you choose.
Yes, but discuss it with your move coordinator. Especially when you’re talking about an interstate move, pricing can vary depending on the load so sometimes you may be able to get a lower price on a different day. It’s also always subject to availability so while we may have the availability to load two days from now, it will most likely be more costly. It’s kind of like buying a plane ticket – we’re a capacity-based industry, so being flexible and booking early can be a money saver.
As for the delivery of your items, you are more likely to have a delivery spread. There are Department of Transportation restrictions that prohibit us from traveling a certain way. We have time constraints and mileage constraints, so if you want to load in Lubbock today and deliver in Florida two days from now, it’s not going to happen because we must be able to abide by all the laws. Getting a specific day can be done, but it must work within a DOT-compliant plan, and again, it may come at a higher cost.
Moves are based on weight, so identify everything that you do not need ahead of time, or things that can be easily replaced on the other end. So the purging and organizing is the most important thing.
Things like canned food, magazines, boxes upon boxes of papers and files can be replaced, recycled and digitized, respectively, instead of paying unnecessarily to bring them with you.
There are so many things like that that you can do, and Suddath offers a moving checklist that details what you should be doing or thinking about each week leading up to your move.
You want to advise your Lubbock move coordinator right away. Let them know, but also document it by taking pictures of it at the time you discover it. You have plenty of time to file a claim, so document as you unpack.
Yes. We are very well-versed and experienced in international moves in Lubbock. We have our own international department that has very strong partnerships and relationships all over the world, tons of partner agents and we can move anybody anywhere they need to go.
There are certainly a lot of competitors in Lubbock, but many of them work more in a niche. For example, you’ll typically have just a local moving company, whereas Suddath in Lubbock can professionally service all moving needs. We do local moving, we do interstate moving, we have international experience, the ability to store your goods as well as handle any specialty items with care, such as pianos.
Yes. You can store your items with us short term, or for long term. For interstate moves, short-term storage caps at 180 days, which is something you should keep in mind. In either case, your items are stored in a fully enclosed, secured vault within our Lubbock warehouse, carefully padded, labelled and tracked electronically.
Certainly, your goods can be stored with us. If it’s in conjunction with an interstate move, it will be held in what we call “storage in transit” or SIT. If you’re just moving locally, it will be put into what we call “permanent storage.” Either way, we can handle it for you. If it’s done on SIT, it’s handled through the provisions of the long-distance bill of lading. If it’s done on permanent storage, it’s just a contract between you and our local Suddath agency.
