PORTLAND LONG-DISTANCE 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 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 long-distance 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.

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 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.

Can my possessions be temporarily stored with Suddath?

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.
