Melbourne Long-Distance Moves
Reduce the stress of moving by choosing a professional moving company. It is estimated that each year, approximately 40 million Americans move at least once. The reasons, locations and distances may vary, but each one requires expert planning and management in order for it to go smoothly. At Suddath, our goal is to simplify the moving process from the first time we survey your current residence to the moment we unload the final box into your new home.
Experience and expertise matter for long-distance moves. We do that by assembling an expert team with extensive training in long distance moves. The most important member of this team for you will be your dedicated Melbourne move coordinator, who will focus on coordinating the details, so you are able to focus more on settling into your new home. Our move coordinators are industry veterans who are highly versed in move management and will be helping to guide you through the entire process. This starts from move planning and date scheduling, includes minding your budget, and providing you with solutions for any issues or concerns you have along the way. While you’re focused on getting to your new city, they will be carefully tracking your shipment and staying in contact with the crew to facilitate a smooth transport.
At Suddath, the credentials and training of our crews is a top priority. Every Suddath team member is extensively trained in the moving process in safety, logistics and customer service skills. They dedicate hundreds of hours to training our own Suddath University, where they learn special procedures for packing, transport, home protection and more.

MELBOURNE INTERSTATE MOVING FAQ
We offer two options, and you would have to choose what's the best option for you. If you would like the minimum coverage, which is at no cost, that coverage gets you $0.60 per pound per article. It is the most economical option that we have, but it only provides minimal protection.
Also, we do offer full value protection if you would like to replace or have the item repaired to the condition that we received it in. If something were to be damaged, there is a cost for that, but it's $6.00 per 10,000 lbs. So, if you have a 10,000-pound shipment, for example, you'll have $60,000 in coverage. Again though, the standard is $0.60 per lb. If something were to get damaged, it would get weighed, multiplied by the $0.60, and that's what you would be reimbursed for the claim.
We work hard to take care of your items. However, should there be a damaged item, you would get in touch with your Melbourne move coordinator and ask for a claims form. You would fill that out and submit it back to them, and then that person will get it to our claims department, where it will get assigned to an adjuster, and they will work with you on resolving your claim.
There are two options. We have a binding estimate, or a binding cost of these services specified in advance, that will give you the cost of the move, and then we have a non-binding estimate. A non-binding is used when you're not exactly sure what's moving. For example, you may not know yet if your daughter's going to move with you, or if the things in the garage are going. Non-binding leaves options open, but there could be additional charges if weight goes higher than anticipated.
Part of our standard operating procedure at Suddath is focused on protecting your goods and home. As soon as we come in and meet you, we're going to lay extensive floor protection. For example, if you have hardwood floors, we're going to put down cardboard, we're going to wrap banisters, and if you have a main thoroughfare that's a stairway, it's going to get carpet shield. We have another neoprene-type rug runner we lay down in the area where we're going to operate the most, and door jamb covers to make sure doors don't get chipped up.
We wrap all of your furniture inside of your house before bringing it to the truck and do the same when we're at the destination, making the delivery. Everything comes off the truck padded into the designated area, unwrapped and placed in your desired location, minimizing the possibility of damages.
