TRUST GOES A LONG WAY
Very smooth move, all in time, very careful and no broken items and clean and fast performance.
The quoting and scheduling process by Tony and Bonnie was very smooth – clear communication and responsive to a number of changes to schedule and elevator logistics. Crew was efficient, quick and courteous. This is our family’s 3rd move using Suddath and we continue to find them excellent.
Outstanding, hard working, skilled, pleasant. Will use you again if I have to move.
They are simply the best. Hard working crew, focused, professional. I would recommend them to anyone.
Suddath did a fantastic job of moving us. Our team was on time very professional and pleasant.
Made moving much less stressful! The move was coordinated throughout the process. They were very nice and took care of all the furniture with extra care! I would definitely use them again!
We had Otis, Elvardo, and Tony move us from Orlando to Miami on June 12th. We were supposed pack one day move the next but they asked us if we could do it all on that Friday. We were up for it! They were awesome! They were polite, considerate, respectful, and a joy to be around. Nothing was broken everything was packed carefully, loaded, and unloaded as if it was there own things. They were a awesome and I can’t say enough about them! Thank you so much! Respectfully, Brian & Ashlee
Juan Guillot And Ben Robles on time fast and professional 👍
I HAD ONE OF THE BEST MOVING EXPERIENCES, EVEN WITH TORRENTIAL RAIN. MOVING STAFF WAS PREPARED, ON TIME, COURTEOUS AND COMPETENT. EVERY PIECE THAT NEEDED TO BE WRAPPED WAS DONE SO. I WAS CHARGED EXACTLY AS PROMISED, NO EXTRA TAPE, BOX OR WRAP CHARGES. THE STAFF EVEN PUT MY BEDS TOGETHER. BONNIE IN THE OFFICE WAS SUPER CHILL AND MADE ME FEEL AT EASE ABOUT THE WHOLE MOVE FROM START TO FINIISH.

MIAMI LOCAL MOVING FAQ
It depends on what you’re moving, but we would advise getting it. Without valuation coverage, your goods are insured for $0.60 per lb., per article. So, if an item weighs 100 lbs., you would get $60 if the item was damaged and needs to be replaced. However, with valuation coverage, you can get full-value protection if that item is worth more than $0.60 per lb.
To start off, secure your valuables, your important papers and documents. Select an area of your home to leave your suitcases and all your belongings that you're going to take with you. That way, the packers and local movers don't pack anything you don't want packed and moved onto the moving van.
Our second piece of advice would be to not plan to do too much on moving day and prepare as much as possible ahead of time. Consider using our full-packing service, as it can help with the stress of running short of time and not being prepared on load day.
In Miami, there are some challenges with the traffic and access to certain residences, neighborhoods and apartments that require a shuttle service. Our team is experienced with dealing with these issues, and often has frequently moved people in and out of those areas. Also, hurricane season can be an issue in South Florida and Florida as a whole. Suddath has a hurricane preparedness program to help operations resume normally quickly after a storm.
Suddath offers both a virtual walkthrough and in-home survey. An in-home survey is preferred if you have more than two bedrooms and 5,000 lbs. of belongings that need to be relocated. If you have a relatively small shipment, however, we do have our virtual walkthrough option, which is convenient for your schedule, as it can be done from your tablet or phone. Once we do your survey, we can give you a binding estimate, where you pay no more than 110% based off what we estimated, or you can get a non-binding estimate, which is based on actual weight.
At both origin and destination, our local moving company protects your home with floor protection and door jamb protection. We pad and un-pad your furniture in and outside of the home during the loading and delivery process. With our upgraded warehouse management system, we scan every item into the warehouse, and scan every item and know its location in real-time as it gets moved around. It’s very efficient, very accurate, and includes a client portal where you as the customer can go in and see your inventory’s location in real-time.
Our local moving company’s focus is on safety, and our compliance helps us to provide safe transportation in these large vehicles. We have a rigorous background-check policy, and our drivers have go through an in-depth background and qualification process, including a drug screening, to be compliant with the DOT. What's unique about Suddath is that all our drivers are interstate qualified. That means that they go through the same qualification process whether they're going to move you locally or if they are moving you across the country.
Any person who goes into a customer's home has a service crew ID number, which means that they've undergone that background check and are fully compliant. So, although we do use contract van operators, they are virtually indistinguishable from our salaried employees – they work exclusively for Suddath, go through the same training and background checks, and most (if not all) have worked with us for years.
Suddath is backed by numerous awards, accreditations and close involvement in the community. We follow strict safety and quality guidelines and track our metrics closely to ensure we deliver the best service possible. When our fully background-checked crew moves your belongings, you can be sure they will be treated with the utmost care and delivered back to you with as little hassle as possible – and always for the agreed-upon price.
Our van operators, helpers, packers and office movers are trained in-house at our own Suddath University. They are taught skills in our specialized packing and crating methods, safety practices, home protection methods, customer service and more, benefit from the industry knowledge we’ve gained over the years. Each crew member is required to complete 25 hours of classroom training and 256 field hours of mentored training before they ever step into your home. Suddath is also always happy to give customers a tour of our warehouse and show you how and where your goods would be stored. Simply inquire with your move coordinator, and they will arrange a time for you to visit our warehouse.
