Only hire the best international mover.

Suddath® has moved over 16,000 families abroad for more than 100 years – no other company can match the knowledge, experience, and successful track record that we have built up over the past century.

Melbourne International Movers FAQ

What if you break something during an overseas move? How do I submit a claim?

We work hard to make sure the belongings in your international move make it to your new home without incident. Our drivers and operators are trained on proper packing, loading/unloading, and how to maneuver safely. We invest in making sure that the entire team assigned to your overseas move knows how to prevent breakage.

However, in the rare case that an item is damaged, your Suddath international move coordinator will assist you through the entire process. The coordinator will provide a claim form and walk you through each step of documenting your broken items claim. Once the form is completed, your coordinator will have a claims representative reach out to you within 24 hours.  

How do you select and hire your Melbourne employees? Do you contract work out?

Every Suddath driver is interstate qualified. They must complete the same qualification process for local, long-distance, and international moves. We also enforce strict compliance with safety by putting all of our drivers through an in-depth background checking process. This process includes drug screening, criminal records, and driving records.

All Suddath team members who enter a customer's home are required to display their crew ID number. This number indicates that they've completed our intense screening process and have been fully compliant with our safety processes. While some van operators may be contractors, they will have completed and passed the same background screening and safety training as our salaried employees.

How do you ensure my items are safely loaded during the moving process?

It begins with the training and vetting of our Melbourne team. All Suddath crew members who enter a customer's home are thoroughly vetted by our internal team through background checking and over 250 hours of training. Every Suddath driver is fully interstate qualified. While some van operators may be contractors, they are still required to complete and pass the same safety training and background screenings as our salaried employees.
