Get Started

Dedicated Local Moving Coordinators

When you sign on with Suddath as your local moving company, we begin by assigning you a single point of contact who will assist you throughout the moving process. Your local move coordinator will help you choose the best moving services for your needs, create your checklist of things to do before moving day, and keep you up to date on all the details of your local move.

If you need any local moving services, such as packing, declutter or storage throughout the process, you will simply call them up, discuss the details, and they will handle everything. On moving day, they will make sure that you and the local movers are working from the same move plan so that everything goes smoothly and there is no confusion or delays.

Professional Packing and Unpacking

Suddath can take care of every aspect of your local move from our full-service packing service, where we take care of everything A to Z, all the way to partial packing for specific items or areas you don’t want to pack yourself, to our budget-friendly DIY option. In all of these options, our local movers will arrive on moving day, carefully protect your home with door, floor and wall protections, diligently wrap your furniture and artfully place it all in the truck.

Personalized Declutter and Storage Services

Customers who need to get rid of some things before they start packing will love our declutter program. It is designed to help you store any personal items or unnecessary furniture so that you can stage your home to sell for the best possible price. 

We are also very proud of our recycle, liquidation and donation program in Portland. It allows our customers to work through us to make sure that as little as possible winds up in a landfill. We certify anything that does get reused, so our customers can acquire green points.

PORTLAND LOCAL MOVING FAQ

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

It starts with the local 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.

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 local movers from its competitors in Portland?

Our experience is really second-to-none in the Portland market. We are also the largest local moving company in the state of Oregon. We have three facilities surrounding the Portland metropolitan area, and our experience and tenure surpasses any other local mover 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.
