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.
LONG-DISTANCE MOVING SERVICES
America’s #1 Interstate Van Line
Suddath is part of United Van Lines, America’s #1 van line and agent network. Van lines are used throughout the industry because no individual moving company has enough locations to cover the entire U.S., so companies partner together to complete long-distance moves.
As United’s largest agent, we can ensure that anyone we partner with is following the same safety standards we do – fully background-checked crews, drug-tested drivers – and exemplary training. Unaffiliated moving companies take risks with your belongings, by potentially handing them off to unknown, fly-by-night movers. With our long-standing partnerships under the United network, Suddath can get you anywhere you need to go.
Climate-Controlled Storage Options
Our warehouse in Miami is brand new, state-of-the-art and built to keep your household goods safe and in good condition. It is climate-controlled, with a technologically advanced warehouse management system.
We can provide short or long-term storage depending on your needs. We also service our logistic and commercial clients in our warehouse, which means your goods will be housed with the same high standards as items like food or medicine.
Dedicated Move Coordinators
One of the most effective ways we efficiently move people long-distance is through assigning each customer a dedicated move coordinator. Your Suddath move coordinator will be your direct contact for any details regarding your cross country move, providing you with updates and the peace-of-mind that comes with knowing someone is watching over your goods.
They will lookout for your budget, unique items requiring special attention, or specialty services you may need. They will handle the request and ensuring the crew is properly equipped on moving day.
Packing and Unpacking Services
Our packing team can take care of boxing up your entire home ahead of your local move, or they can come in and partially pack – dealing only with items or rooms you need assistance with.
DIY packing is always an option as well. Our crew will come in on moving day to wrap and protect furniture and place all of your items and boxes into the truck for transit, while you handle the rest of the packing for yourself.
Specialized long-distance services
If you require total, bespoke management of your long-distance move, and simply want to arrive at your new destination with every aspect ready to go, Suddath can provide concierge services.
Our team can carefully store your household goods, even delicate items like antiques or wine collections. Suddath can safely pack, move, and store any of your household goods with white glove care.
If you need to relocate your boat to your new destination, we can coordinate that service with one of our trusted Miami partners to ensure your boat is ready to hit the open seas whenever you are.
If you need to relocate your vehicle, especially if you require covered or protected transportation for an antique or high-end vehicle, we can manage that service with one of our trusted Miami partners.

MIAMI LONG-DISTANCE MOVING FAQ
Suddath provides the flexibility of choosing between an in-home survey or a virtual walkthrough. We recommend an in-home survey if you have more than two bedrooms and 5,000 lbs. of items that need to be relocated.
However, for relatively small shipments, our virtual walkthrough is an easy and convenient option that can be done from your mobile device. Upon completing your survey, we can provide you a binding estimate, which guarantees you will pay no more than 110% of what we estimated, or you can get a non-binding moving estimate, based on actual weight.
We would advise getting it. Without valuation coverage, your goods are insured for $0.60 per lb., per article. For example, 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.
We take extra care of your belongings by protecting your home with floor protection and door jamb protection at both origin and destination.
We pad and un-pad your furniture in and outside of the home during the loading and delivery process. For interstate moves, we track your shipment via technology both on the physical truck and with the GPS on our drivers electronic logging device. If you have items in our warehouse, they are protected within our fenced and gated facility with 24-hour monitoring.
Suddath provides a detailed moving checklist to help you get ready before you move. Most importantly, secure your valuables, important papers and documents. Also select a separate 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 movers don't pack anything you don't want packed and moved onto the moving van.
Our second piece of advice would be – don't plan too much on move day. We recommend using our full-packing service, as opposed to you attempting to pack and running short of time and not being prepared on load day.
As a cross country moving company traveling many miles on the highway, safety is always our top priority, 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. All of our drivers are interstate qualified. 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.
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 have worked with us for years.
