TRUST GOES A LONG WAY
Moved from Miami, FL to Des Moines, IA. The entire Suddath team was amazing. Thank you Tony, Bonnie, Reno (my driver) and the whole crew on both ends. I could not have had a better team.
Jessica and the team were very helpful and were always available to answer all questions.
The team was terrific. They made the process as stress free as a move could be. The care they took packing was as if they were packing their own personal property.
Amazing service and efficient packing. I would use them again in a heartbeat.
We enjoyed spectacular service from point to point starting with our agent and coordinator. Any question we had was answered promptly and smoothly. The drivers/movers on both ends of our move could not have been nicer or more efficient. Will be using for our next move!
Alvaro, Felipe, and Cesar were incredible and got all my belongings moved in efficiently and professionally. They even helped me put together my bed! Highly recommend, 5/5 stars and an excellent crew.
Very satisfied with the communication and professional service we received from Tony giving the estimate to Bonnie keeping us posted to Carlos and crew loading in Miami to Nelson and crew unloading in Phoenix.
We can’t be more happy with the service provided by Suddath. Tony was great, courteous, and always reachable during our planning process. Bonni was always on top of the process to support us. But especially Nelson, the driver, helped us in every single possible way. He was clear, transparent, collaborative, respectful, and organized. Great company to work with, incredible people behind it. Thanks guys! You delivered more than we expected. Leo
Very smooth move, all in time, very careful and no broken items and clean and fast performance.
OVERSEAS MOVING SERVICES
At Suddath, we offer a selection of packing solutions to fit any budget and timing needs, particularly when it applies to international moves. With our full-service packing option, we pack all the belongings in your home which gives you more free time to prepare for life in a new international location. We also offer partial packing and DIY packing solutions that may help offset costs during the moving process.
Prepping for Customs
When moving abroad from Miami, there are many potential regulations you may encounter upon entering your new destination, particularly through the customs process. Preparation is key and the experts at Suddath will help you understand and gather the necessary materials to ensure a smooth international move. With certifications such as Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), Suddath international movers are committed to following all compliance and security measures to the high standards expected of US Customs and Border Protection.
To start the international moving process with ease, a Suddath team member will thoroughly assess your home via an in-person survey or a virtual walkthrough, to help prepare an accurate estimate for your overseas move and a detailed outline for the best way to transport your items.
For international or overseas moves in particular, careful attention is paid to size and type of material, as shipping regulations may dictate how and what gets moved. Your dedicated Suddath coordinator will help generate and organize all the documentation and procedures needed to make your exciting international move a stress-free experience.
For international moves, there are a number of ways to transport your belongings that differ from moving from one Miami neighborhood to another. Because of distance, waterways and potentially the lack of roads to the international destination, Suddath will use a combination of land, sea and air shipping procedures to safely and securely move your belongings. Your Suddath coordinator will determine the best method for transporting these items, taking into consideration, weight, volume, destination, costs and more.
Especially in an international or overseas move, some items may require more than a cardboard box when moving. Suddath offers custom-tailored crating solutions to safely and securely transport your most unique, and often most valuable, items to your new home.
Transporting a Boat
While a sea voyage sounds like the trip of a lifetime, it might not be possible when also managing your international move from Miami. Our Suddath partners can help transport your boat to your new destination so that it’s ready in your new international port.
Relocating with Pets
Our furry family members need lots of special attention during a move, especially when moving abroad. Suddath has long-standing relationships with organizations who specialize in providing a smooth overseas relocation process for your pets, and ensuring they meet all international requirements.
When moving abroad, driving your car is likely not a viable solution to transport your vehicle. Suddath has partnerships that can provide you with options for moving your automobile from Miami to your new destination. Then, we will handle the rest so you can focus on your destination.

Miami International Movers FAQ
Try to book a moving company at least 10 to 12 weeks before your international move date. Remember, overseas moving companies are in especially high demand during the summer months.
Purchasing a comprehensive international moving insurance policy to protect your goods during transit is highly recommended. Extreme care is taken when packing, loading and moving your items to your new location, however accidents do happen.
A good policy should cover your door-to-door for full replacement value at destination. This value is based on your assessment of what your items would cost to replace. Inquire with your Suddath move coordinator, as we can help facilitate international moving insurance.
A high value inventory form is an insurance company form where an individual item, pair or set in excess of $3,000 (or whatever the individual insurance policy dictates) is specifically identified for coverage during the international move.
Yes, we can move your pet. Suddath coordinates with various specialist pet relocation companies that provide a quality relocation service for your furry family members. Allow extra time for vaccinations, health certificates, chips, etc. as every country is different and some may require quarantine. Suddath can provide all this information, just allow extra time. With pets, sometimes six months or more of planning is required in advance of packing for an international move.
Yes, we can arrange auto transport services and vehicle transport services. It’s as simple as providing your Suddath move coordinator with the year, make and model of the vehicle. From there, we can check to ensure your car is authorized and allowed to be shipped to your country of destination, secure a vehicle transport quote and advise you of your costs and regulations. One thing to remember—don’t leave personal items in your vehicle. It needs to be empty of everything other than the standard items it came with from the dealership when first purchased.
Your goods can be moved on any date you choose. Weekdays are best, as there can be additional costs associated with weekend or holiday moves. Try to plan accordingly and work closely with your move coordinator for more ideas on how to avoid additional costs, and please note that some countries require two weeks or more to secure an international shipping container.
The delivery date at destination will depend on the size of your shipment, sailing schedules of the steamship lines between ports and finally, customs clearance procedures and the destination agent’s availability. Once a pack date is determined at origin, estimated transit time will be calculated and advised.
Suddath takes many precautions and train our teams with certified international packing standards to ensure your belongings arrive on time and without damage. However, our claims team is here to start the settlement process in the unlikely event that something gets damaged during your international move. Your agreed upon insurance coverage will determine the settlement for any potential claims The claims filing process can be easily completed online.
Move cost is determined based on weight/volume. There are many factors that go into determining the cost of your move abroad, but the weight of your items is the biggest.
Other factors that might influence cost are:
• Specialized moving services that may be required
• If any of your items need custom crating
• Shipment destination
• Specialized access needs
Your move coordinator can discuss these costs with you and determine if there are any factors that would put additional cost onto your move.
There are some general items that cannot be shipped, international or otherwise. For example, plants, paint cans or ammunition, to name a few. Make sure you understand what cannot be shipped ahead of time and speak with your Suddath move coordinator for any items that may be specific to the country or region you are relocating to. For example, places like Australia, Singapore and China have stricter rules than others, and ignoring these rules can create delays at customs or even hefty fines.
It depends on where you are moving. In most countries, if you have owned items for more than six months, or sometimes a year, you do not. However, some countries have different rules for expats vs returning nationals. Your Suddath move coordinator will provide specific, up-to-date customs regulations for your country of destination.
As this is considered an international service, you do not pay local state taxes on your expatriate move if it is out of the United States. Your Suddath move coordinator will provide additional information on the overseas moving process and rules at your country of destination, to help you understand if you will be subject to any taxes or fees in your country of origin or destination.
