TRUST GOES A LONG WAY
Suddaths administrative staff was very accommodating. I had changes in amounts and dates related to the house I was moving from and to. The moving team was terrific. No breakage. No scrapes on the walls. Wanted to know how to do their job as best as they can. They we’re great as a team. They communicated very well amongst themselves and finished the job ahead of schedule!
Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN
Suddath did a great job moving us to our new location. From Randy Scharpen who did our estimate and provided us with clear directions, and our coordinator Heather, to the one day move led by Carl Jacobson and Mark Grey and crew, everything was seamless and professional. We will definitely request the same move team on our next move. Thanks for your fine service.

Randy did a great job with scheduling and the guys doing the move were very professional and went the extra mile. Great service!
Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN
Team effort from Eric, Robin, Belinda, and Erynn. Fantastic work, really impressed with the work ethic and communication. Would be happy to use the Suddath team again.
The service was great very professional staff
Jim Murray and Brenda Menendez did a fantastic job of bidding and coordinating the tough pre-move process seem easy. Then on move day, Marc and his crews were timely, conscientious and considerate in all respects when loading our furniture in late September, transporting it across state, and unloading it the next morning, placing the items in our new home. The coordination between crewmembers during loading and unloading was impressive. Obviously seasoned teams, motion and effort were not wasted. Furniture appropriately wrapped. No nicks in walls or corners, going or coming. We had solicited bids from three companies, the bids were close, and Suddath/United had the middle (unfixed) bid but gave us the greatest comfort level based on professionalism during the bidding process. Then we received money back because the weight was less than estimated when bidding. Honest bunch. Overall, a good experience. Without question, we’d use them again.
Suddath made our move to Chicago easy and, actually, almost fun. The people were incredibly friendly and professional. First there was Craig, who came out to assess our goods and estimate the moving cost. Craig was thorough and complete, gave me some tips and ideas on items that I was packing myself, and was accurate with his assessment. Then there was Penny and the packers – they were also quick, and so friendly and personable. I discovered on the receiving end how good they are at their jobs, as not a thing was scratched or broken. Dennis was the lead on our move – he is very organized, and, again, professional and friendly. He walked us through the process and everything happened on time and exactly as he said it would. The moving crews on both ends were so efficient and hardworking. They walk thru after everything is off the truck and make sure that things are placed exactly how I wanted them, and that was greatly appreciated. I would highly recommend them. Thanks so much for a fantastic job!
Everyone was extremely helpful and skilled. We appreciate the hard work and would highly recommend Suddath Relocation Systems. Elaine Bagby did a great job of coordinating the move and was always available for help.
Ashley Winfrey was amazing! So happy I went with Suddath instead of competitor. Service was outstanding. I’ve worked with a few movers in the past (for clients) but Ashley is just above and beyond. Such a stressful time. But Suddath/ Ashley helped me survived it. Thank you!
LOCAL MOVING MADE EASY
Simplified Estimation Process
With Suddath, we make getting a moving estimate easier – giving you the option to do to a walkthrough virtually via a mobile device, or by scheduling an in-person walkthrough with one of our experienced representatives. Choose the option that is most convenient for you and your schedule. Once the walk-through is complete, your Suddath contact will generate a comprehensive, accurate quote and plan that covers every aspect of your move, from packing options, delivery details and even specialized services to transport unique items.
A Single Point of Contact
Suddath has been in business for over 100 years, and we’ve used that time to develop the services we know mean the most to our customers. Each customer has a local moving coordinator who will develop a personalized move plan and will review all of the services we offer in order to choose the most meaningful options for your move. These are trained and tenured members of our team who will help you implement a moving plan that fits your needs perfectly. Your local move coordinator will also help you create a checklist and keep you up-to-date on all of the details of your move.
Professional Packing and Unpacking
Our team is trained to help pack every item in your house with our complete packing service or help you with whatever packing solution fits your timeline and budget. With partial packing, we pack based on your direction. We also offer quality materials and advice if you opt for DIY packing. Of course, on moving day, we wrap your furniture and protect your home space as we securely load your belongings in the truck for transit.
Flexible Storage Solutions
Moving locally is usually a pretty simple task. However, there are times during a local move when Minneapolis residents need to store some or all of their belongings in the between or after their local moving processes. Whatever your storage needs may be, Suddath has options that are affordable and flexible to suit your needs. We have over 3 million square feet of storage facilities across the country, and our warehouse in Eden Prairie features 24/7 monitoring and is climate- controlled year-round, staying a moderate temperature for your most sensitive items.
SPECIALIZED LOCAL MOVING SERVICES
With our full-service packing team, you can get the assistance you need to get your local Minneapolis-area move prepped and ready to go, without any of the sweat equity. We use only the best materials and techniques.
Unique items that are particularly delicate, fragile or irregularly sized, may require their own tailored, custom crates built to protect them. Our team consists of experts who will take measurements and build a crate to spec.
Not sure what's going and what's staying? We offer secure household goods storage to keep your personal belongings secure for as long as you need. In certain locations, we offer temperature- or climate-controlled storageto safely store delicate items like art, antiques, or wine collections.
High net-worth clients are accustomed to the best, why should that be any different when they are selecting an Minneapolis local moving company? We only provide highly trained moving teams who are background-checked and experienced moving clients who demand the best.

LOCAL MOVING FAQ
We offer both in-home surveys and virtual walkthroughs to provide estimates for local moves. Your local move coordinator will walk through your home with you room by room to assess what needs to be moved. They will perform the walk-through at a time that is convenient for you. If you choose an in-home estimate, we will set an appointment with you at your home. If you prefer our virtual walkthrough, you will simply use your smartphone or tablet to give our team a video walkthrough of your home.
Once the walk-through of your choice is complete, you will have two options:
1. A non-binding estimate - this estimate is based on the total weight of your shipment. Keep in mind that we will not know the exact weight until moving day when all your items are loaded onto the truck.
2. A binding estimate - the cost of your move is provided upfront. So, if the final weight is above or below the estimate, you will only pay the rate we quoted to you.
We’re glad you’re asking this question. It’s unfortunate, but the reality is that there are many moving companies that are not properly insured, especially for local moves. Pay close attention to the quote process. All moving companies must perform a home walkthrough prior to the day of your move. It is not legal to provide a quote without performing a walkthrough and survey. If the company is unwilling to commit to a specific price or if they offer vague pricing options, we recommend finding a different moving company in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.
Perform online research through reputable, third-party websites. Once you have read through Google reviews, visit the websites of independent organizations like the Better Business Bureau (“BBB”). They can verify that the companies you are considering are established and accredited. The BBB website provides access to complaints and responses from the moving company. This can provide insight into how the company responds when their customers are unhappy with the services they received.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, or FMCSA, is another valuable source of information. This organization’s job is to make sure that all commercial carrier vehicles that meet certain requirements have a Department of Transportation (DOT) number. Once you have the DOT number, head over to the FMCSA website and look up the moving company’s compliance. You can also ask the moving company directly for their (DOT) number.
Finally, be sure to ask your mover for a record of all of the accreditations they have earned and the industry associations they have. Don’t forget to request their insurance information to be sure it’s up to date. Any reputable moving company is accustomed to supplying this information to its customers and will do so willingly.
You will be automatically provided with a $0.60 per lb. valuation, free of charge. However, we are happy to provide additional valuation coverage to every customer that wants more protection. One thing you should keep in mind is that valuation coverage is not insurance. In order to procure insurance for your move, you will need to work through a licensed insurance company.
Learn more about your valuation coverage options in our blog post on the subject.
Ideally, we recommend that you begin the process no later than two months before your desired move date. It’s not uncommon for things to change once you begin the process and starting in advance will give you plenty of time to manage any unexpected issues or developments.
Have less time than that before you need to move? Don’t worry. Our team in Minneapolis has over a century of local moving experience, we can help you get where you need to go.
