Safe and Secure Storage

If you’re unable to take certain things with you on your long-distance move, we can help you store your household belongings securely with us at any point before, during or after your move. In locations where the climate necessitates it, we have climate- and temperature-controlled storage—stabilizing humidity and seasonal changes. If you’re storing items for a long period of time, or if you need protection from radical temperature extremes, like a cold Minnesota winter, temperature-controlled storage solutions are great options.

A Highly Trained, Fully-Vetted Moving Team

It’s important to know that your possessions are being protected and valued every step of the way during a long-distance move. 

Every team member you interact with has passed our rigorous background check before ever working on a customer’s move. Each Suddath team member is also educated at Suddath University. While in school, they receive in-depth training and education in logistics, moving, and relocation. It’s part of what makes us one of the highest rated long-distance movers in Minneapolis.

America’s #1 Cross-Country Mover

Suddath is part of United Van Lines – America’s #1 van line and agent network. Since no individual long-distance moving company has enough locations to cover the entire United States, like-minded companies partner together to complete long-distance moves.

By partnering with United, we can ensure every partner is highly vetted, 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 fly-by-night movers.

Your move will be supported entirely by a Suddath move coordinator. They will provide you with updates and the peace-of-mind of knowing that someone is watching over your move and belongings.

MINNEAPOLIS LONG-DISTANCE MOVING FAQ

How do I get a long-distance moving estimate?

We offer both in-home surveys and virtual walk-throughs to provide estimates for long distance moves. A Suddath team member will go 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 walk-through, you will simply use your smartphone or tablet to give our team a video walk-through of your home.

Once the walk-through of your choice is complete, you will have two options:

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.
A binding estimate - the cost of your move is provided up front. So, if the final weight is above or below the estimate, you will only pay the rate we quoted to you.

How can I be sure I’m hiring a reputable long-distance moving company?

This is an important question to ask. It’s unfortunate, but the reality is that there are many Minneapolis moving companies that are not properly insured, especially for long-distance moves.

The first step is to 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 the walkthrough. If a moving company is offering you pricing before performing a walkthrough, then they are not in compliance with the law. 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 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. And, 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.

When should I start my long-distance moving process?

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? You’re in the right place. Suddath has over 100 years of experience helping families move long distances. We can help you navigate your timeline with an optimized move plan.

Do I need valuation coverage?

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.
