Minneapolis International Movers FAQ

When should I start my international moving process?

Starting as early as possible is usually best, especially in an international move. Ideally, this would happen no later than three months before your desired move date.

If you have less time than that before you need to move abroad, don't worry. Suddath has been helping people in the Twin Cities move internationally for a century. We have created a detailed moving checklist to help you decide what tasks you should be completing and when. When you begin working with your dedicated international move coordinator, they will customize a timeline and checklist for your unique moving needs.

How should I choose an international mover?

First of all, make sure the company is a true international mover – not just a moving company that will take your international moving business, and then farm out all of the work to third parties. In the latter situation, you would have less oversight into the treatment of your goods, whether customs rules and regulations are being followed and less recourse if there is an issue.

One way to know for sure is to look for international moving award winners. For example, Suddath has won EMMAs International Mover of the Year in 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2019. The award highlights Suddath’s commitment to having a positive impact on our partners’ business priorities through innovations, improvements and a dedicated focus on transferee experience. Learn more about Suddath and this prestigious award.

How do you ensure my items are safely loaded?

It begins with the training and vetting of our team. Our internal team thoroughly vets all Suddath crew members who enter a customer's home through background checking and over 300 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.

Our team members spend significant time training at Suddath University at our headquarters in North Florida to ensure your items are safely loaded and all safety procedures are being followed. They are trained in both international and domestic packing techniques, loading/unloading safety instructions, and any international moving procedures.
