TRUST GOES A LONG WAY
We moved from Memphis TN to Missoula MT. The team and experience were fantastic from start to finish. Tom Stallard reached out and did an incredibly thorough video walk-through with me. His first question was, “What is the most important thing to you about this move?” I told him that it was to get our items moved safely. Everything, absolutely everything arrived safely, including some very heavy statues. Shelly, the coordinator, called daily to ensure that all was going well. The driver who oversaw the packing, loading and unloading had very professional teams that were not only careful, but polite, professional…and had great senses of humor and flexibility when weather dictated changes. I wouldn’t move again without Suddath and our driver, Jeff Brown.
An appreciative shout out to Suddath for their handling of the last leg of my move from Brooklyn, NY to Portland. Despite the late arrival of my shipment, they made room in their schedule (not easy during the busy season) to minimize the delay & accommodate my needs. Bert and his team in truck #489 were terrific. Bert, along with Ean, Rick and Jesse arrived at the early end of the delivery window, which was very helpful. Efficient doesn’t begin to describe their effort. They were fast, but careful of my things and the space they were bringing them into, respectful of me and one another. They were willing to adjust their pace to ensure that I could verify/account for everything and get it appropriately located. Bed perfectly assembled, all packing materials whisked away. Couldn’t ask for a better delivery. Hopefully, I don’t have to move again anytime soon. But if I do, Suddath – with Bert & his team – would be my go-to resource. Thank you all.
Cannot say enough about how great Danny was to work with. Its VERY stressful to move clear across the country but he was so helpful and patient with me. Really thankful I found Danny & Suddath for this move!
I have used Suddath in the past on what became a very complicated long-distance household move (which they did great completing). Today, I needed a high level quote and received outstanding service from Terrance via a live chat. He was very professional and extremely helpful. Suddath has again rose to the top of my list for my next move! Thank you.
Kudos to all involved in this cross-country move. Some minor glitches, but communication was always solid and followup to issues was fast and completely acceptable. Worth the money: Pack/loading team: Paco, Kennedy, Josue in Orlando for focused, professional and dedicated tasking over a six hour period to see the origin site completely packed, followed by clear review of documentation; Delivery team: Greg Toten and Tamara Freudigman at delivery site, also demonstrating the necessary energy, organization and commitment to insure all the packed HHG were accounted for; Terri Alderson, Orlando move coordinator, for her availability to status and answer related questions (damage, schedule, POCs for my particular move) — also to coordinate corrective action regarding delay of delivery compensation; Dan Lees, Orlando estimator, for using the virtual estimating tool effectively in preparing paperwork for my consideration in the bid process in advance of mover selection.
Mike, Tom, and Mike were kind and understanding during a stressful time. The team managed to fit my stuff into 2 containers instead of 3 and were incredibly patient and accommodating as I needed to change my mind about what would go or have to get left behind. They were total pros and great people. Thank you guys for taking care of me and my stuff!
Karen and Theresa were excellent at helping me coordinate my move. They were very professional and helpful every step of the way,
Mike and his crew were fantastic. Our entire two bedroom apartment was unloaded in less than an hour. They were careful with everything and made sure to not get the apartment dirty while bringing things in. Couldn’t have asked for anything more.
Mike, Michael and Tom did an amazing job, this was a last minute and stressful move, but they made their portion seamless and eased my stress. Clearly, my furniture was in good hands, they were collaborative, incredibly helpful, and overall pleasant and respectful. I’ve worked with a few moving companies – these guys were excellent.

Specialized long-distance moving services
If a cross-country trip on your motorcycle isn't in the moving plan for your long-distance move to your new home, Suddath can handle the logistics with trusted partners to help get it there safely.
Piano moving for long distance relocation is one of the specialties that Suddath has covered. If your piano needs to make the long-distance relocation with you, we can pack, ship, and unload it safely for you.
Unique items or items that are particularly delicate, fragile or irregularly sized, may require their own tailored crates built to protect these types of items. Our team consists of experts who will take measurements and build a crate to spec.
During a long-distance move, time might not allow you to check a cross-country road trip off your list just yet. Suddath will enlist one of our partners to make sure your vehicle gets to your new destination safely.
LONG-DISTANCE MOVING RESOURCES
PORTLAND LONG-DISTANCE MOVING FAQ
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 a 10-lb. lamp, you’re only going to get $6 for that lamp, regardless of its actual replacement cost.

We take great pride in providing you with a great experience from start to finish. One thing we do provide is a designated customer service person, your 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.
Absolutely. Portland has over 200,000 square feet of secure warehouse space, which includes a section of climate-controlled space. 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.
