Community

Rose City Truck Pull

Suddath Portland participated in the first-ever Move for Hunger "Rose City Truck Pull," as one of 13 different vendors for this great cause, which mobilizes (sometimes literally!) the relocation industry to reduce food waste and fight hunger.

Not only did our team help to raise the overall $28,000 but we "pulled together" to take 1st place in the truck pull!

PORTLAND MOVING FAQ

Do I need valuation coverage?

Typically, it is a good idea to get some extra coverage on the items that you're moving, especially if they are high-value or expensive.

You are automatically covered for $0.60 per lb., which may not be enough if you have higher value items. For example, if something happens to be a 10-lb. lamp, you’re only going to get $6 for that lamp, regardless of its actual replacement cost.

Can Suddath move my car?

Absolutely we can move your car. We have several different types of Portland moving services available whether your car is a normal run-of-the-mill car, a classic car or a high-end car. For instance, we do have a covered car carrier, and then for the normal transports we do have the open-air auto carriers.

What is a common issue for moving in Portland and how do you deal with it?

There are a lot of moving companies out there, and some are not reputable. You must be very careful of companies that are not licensed or bonded to handle your items. Poor quality of labor is another issue that is common, and you put your items at risk if you do not do your due diligence beforehand.

I’m looking to move internationally. Can Suddath help?

Absolutely, we do a lot of international moves for some very recognizable companies, as well as independent international moves. We have certified estimators that can come out and give you a binding bid to move your items from here to anywhere in the world.

We have very experienced crews that know how to load lift-vans and overseas containers. We also have certified packers and laborers to handle international shipments.

What do you do to ensure my items and property are safe and secure during the moving process?

It starts with the movers that are loading these items, and their training and experience. Suddath has a very thorough training program called ‘Suddath University’ that all of our employees go through, which covers the proper ways to pack a shipment into boxes and loading it into the moving truck, as well as many of our other best practices developed over our decades in the business.

The home protection that we use at origin and destination, which includes floor protection, wrapping and padding, is all something that is a Suddath standard throughout the moving company.

What differentiates Suddath movers from other moving companies in Portland?

Our experience is really second-to-none in the Portland market. We are also the largest moving company in the state of Oregon. We have three facilities surrounding the Portland metropolitan area, and our experience and tenure is probably better than anyone in town. We have many employees that have been with us close to 10 years or more.

The training that we do is unmatched, not just in Portland, but in the industry. Suddath University is something that our operations managers, dispatchers and general managers go through, ensuring quality, efficiency and safety.

Do you use your own people, or do you contract some work out?

As a local moving company in Portland, we are unique in that we have a very good mix of employees and contractor-employees. All our contractors work exclusively for us, and many have done so for years. The only difference is in the way we pay them, but they have to adhere to the exact same standards that anyone we employ directly does. They also must have the same amount of coverage, be licensed and bonded just like a Suddath employee would be. But we do have a mix of both.

How do you select and hire your employees?

We run background checks on every employee that comes through here, and they also go through an intensive training process before they're allowed to start on the job. Every van operator also has to go through a drug screening.
By the nature of the moving business, we do work with some contractors. Many of our van operators are contractors, but they’re hardly any different from our actual employees. They work exclusively for us, and most have been with Suddath for years.

We have a lot of tenure on our crew, and that’s because Suddath is a great organization. We're looking to grow someone else's career. I think these crews, I think they know that, and they know that they're working for the best. Any other company would be second-tier and not take care of them the way we do.

Moving can be stressful. What do you do to make it easier for me?

We take great pride in providing you with a great experience from start to finish. One of the most important things we do for our customers is to provide them with a dedicated, local Portland move coordinator, who will hold your hand from the start of booking the survey through to the end of delivery.

They will check on you throughout the process to help you through the very difficult and stressful process of moving. They'll answer any questions along the way. You'll also notice that when your surveyor comes out, the experience and attention to detail that they will have will give you a feeling of comfort. But that start to finish guidance is what we take great pride in.

Can my possessions be temporarily stored with Suddath?

We do happen to have a climate-controlled section of our warehouse, which is unique to Portland. Oregon typically does not require a climate-controlled atmosphere because we are a moderate climate. However, there have been some high-end customers that have asked for this type of service, and we are able to provide it to them.

Do you offer any discard and donation programs in Portland?

Yes, we do. Our recycle, liquidation and donation program is very strong. We don't just do it for our household goods, but we more often do it for our large commercial accounts.

Suddath has a very green program here in Portland that allows our customers to work through us to make sure that as little as possible winds up in a landfill, and we do donation and liquidation and recycle programs for some of the largest companies in Portland. We even have a way to certify anything that does get reused, so our customers can acquire green points.

What commercial moving services do you offer and what commercial environments do you specialize in?

Our branch here in Portland, Oregon is very unique, and I would say complex. Our complexity of commercial customers is unmatched in this market and potentially throughout the country. 

We have program work which is called MAC, which stands for moves, adds, changes, and we are on business campuses every day for some of the largest companies in town. We have anywhere from 150 to 200 people doing commercial moving on a day-to-day basis, and we also provide specialized services like ergonomics assessments, planning, and support, which is an on-campus strategic planner who works organizing upcoming moves. 

We're dealing with corporations that are essentially like cities, and we are helping them with the everyday changes of that city, including installation services. We have in-house installers that do cubicles for many different brands of furniture, including Steelcase, Herman Miller, Haworth, Kimball, Teknion and several others. We do not sub-contract out that type of work. We actually have certified installers for many of the different brands, but we are also able to offer people from a dock manager, to planning support, to a project coordinator, and many other services that we offer.
