We recently moved with Suddath from Florida to Texas. The packing crew (Elvardo, Otis, Tony, Meloney, and Dedria) we absolutely awesome. They arrived on time, worked diligently, were very professional, friendly and got the job done. We were completely satisfied with the work that they performed. Our moving van driver, Greg, was such a blessing. He definitely knew how to get the job done expeditiously. He made us feel that our household goods were in expert hands. He was professional and the people assisting him were polite and professional. He was on time with his delivery and everything was unloaded safely. Terry, our Move Coordinator, was absolutely wonderful. Any time I contacted her, she was extremely helpful, friendly, and very professional. We are very pleased with the service we have received from Suddath. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
My moving team (Otis, Gaston and Jarrod) arrived on time & ready to work! Each team member introduced himself to me and were very friendly. All of my items were handled with care. It was evident that the team was very experienced in loading items in an efficient and safe manner. I would highly recommend this team to my fellow homeowners.
Elvardo and Kevin did a fantastic job! They were very professional, arrived on time and were super careful with getting everything into my apartment and even offered extra help with stuff that was outside of their scope!
Arnaldo Acrvedo and his crew moved us from Orlando to Tampa. They were extremely professional and friendly throughout the process and made this a stress free move! This was our 7th move using Suddath and I would highly recommend them.

Inventory Prep for Customs
When moving internationally, it's essential to start the process with a thorough inventory of your items. Our expert international moving coordinators can assist and determine what items will require special paperwork for customs. Depending on where you are moving, certain items may be prohibited, and having expert inventory prep can be crucial to avoiding customs delays.
When your inventory prep is complete, the next step is to begin preparing all the necessary documents. Your international move coordinator will be with you every step of the way during this process as well. They cannot request the documents for you, but they can provide step-by-step instructions and keep you informed of the clearance status.
Ocean and Air Freight
For overseas moves, transportation services include air, sea, and land shipments. Depending on your final destination, your belongings may use one or a combination of those methods. Your international move coordinator will review your options with you so that you understand method of transport and timeline.

INTERNATIONAL MOVING RESOURCES
Orlando International Movers FAQ
Absolutely. Our Orlando storage space offers the most professional long-term storage during your overseas move. Your international move coordinator can make it so that your storage items are safely crated and taken to our Orlando warehouse, where they will enjoy 10,000 square feet of climate-controlled storage space.
Your items will be stored in a fully enclosed vault within our Orlando warehouse. With vault storage, our warehouse staff will carefully store and pad wrap your valuables in the container.
Alongside the rigorous training of our crew in how to handle items, Suddath uses floor protection and door jamb protection in both locations of your move. We pad and un-pad your furniture in and outside of the home during the loading and delivery process.
If you live in an apartment, we will work with you and your building manager to ensure that we are compliant with all rules or restrictions, and our crew would use additional floor protection and elevator protection where necessary.
If your move includes storage in our warehouse, our warehouse management system o allows us to scan every item as it arrives at the warehouse. With this technology, we are able to know its location in real-time as it gets moved. What's more, this technology includes a client portal for customers to access online and see the inventory's location in real-time.
First, pay careful attention to the process the company uses to provide you with a quote. All moving companies must perform a home walkthrough before moving day before giving customers a moving quote. If they fail to complete a walkthrough in advance or if their price is vague, we recommend finding a different moving company in the Orlando area.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, or FMCSA, is an excellent resource of information about international moving companies. This organization was established to ensure that all commercial carrier vehicles meet the specific requirements outlined by law and that they obtain a Department of Transportation (DOT) number. With the DOT number, you can look up your moving company on the FMCSA website. You can also ask the international moving company directly for their (DOT) number.
One of the best ways to investigate the local moving company you hire is to perform online research through reputable, third-party websites. If you’re going beyond Google Reviews (which we recommend) be sure to check with independent organizations like the Better Business Bureau ("BBB"). They can verify that the companies you are considering are established and accredited. If the local mover you are considering has had any complaints filed with the BBB, you can easily access the files and even see the company's response to those claims. Also, we recommend that you ask the overseas moving company directly for a list of the accreditation's they have earned, including what industry associations they belong to.
First, it's essential to understand that valuation coverage is not insurance. What you get through your overseas mover is valuation coverage. This is an agreement between you and your moving company regarding claims and declaring who is liable for those claims.
Valuation coverage guarantees that the international moving company pays for items that became lost or damaged by fault of the moving company. If your goods are lost or damaged, and the moving company is at fault, the mover agrees to pay the agreed-upon amount. For example, Suddath offers standard Released Value Protection (RVP) valuation coverage at $0.60 per pound of your shipment.
According to federal law, it is required that moving companies offer you valuation coverage. If a moving company fails to do so, it may be a sign that they are a disreputable or "rogue" mover.
As you prepare for your upcoming move abroad, you will want to explore if valuation coverage will work for you, or if you'd like to insure your goods through an insurance company. If you have more specific questions about insurance and valuation coverage, your local moving coordinator will be happy to help.
