LOCAL MOVING SERVICES
Clear Estimate with an Easy Walkthrough
Most people dread moving as one of the more stressful events in their lives. Our team’s mission is to ease the local moving process, all the way from the initial moving quote process through to the final delivery of your goods. We want to turn your perception of moving from a stressful time, into a fond memory of settling into your new home.
Suddath makes getting a local moving estimate easy, while providing the peace of mind of a thorough walkthrough. We give you the option of either a video or in-person walkthrough survey, and with either, you can rest assured that we have reviewed your items thoroughly, spoken to you about your moving needs, and can give you a solid quote – no last-minute changes or fees on moving day. The only thing you have to worry about is where you want us to place your items in your new home.
Professional Local Moving Coordinators
When you sign on with Suddath as your San Antonio local moving company, we begin by assigning you a single point of contact who will assist you throughout the moving process. When you have a question, concern or issue, they will be your first and only call.
Your local move coordinator will help you choose the best moving services for your needs, help you understand 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, they will discuss the details with you and handle scheduling. 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.
Professional Packing and Unpacking
We make moving day easier, but we can also help the weeks beforehand be easier as well. Suddath’s trained packers can take that aspect off of your to-do list and come in and pack up your home prior to your move. This allows you to focus on work, family, or other aspects of your life, and not worry about packing. We offer complete house packing services, or even will come in and pack a few rooms, such as a kitchen or office, and leave the rest to you. No matter what level of packing assistance you need, our local movers will arrive on moving day, carefully protect your home with door, floor and wall protections, diligently wrap your furniture and skillfully place it all in the moving van.
Easy Declutter and Storage Services
If you’re staging your home and need to remove some items ahead of your official moving day, Suddath is prepared to quickly assist prior to your move with our declutter program. According to the National Realtor’s Association, 82% of buyer’s agents said that a staged home helped their clients visualize the space as their own. Allow us to help you store some personal items or unnecessary furniture so you can stage your home to sell for the best possible price.
Pianists worldwide have entrusted Suddath to safely move and store their pianos. Our San Antonio piano movers are trained in how to safely pack, move, and store instruments without damage or distress. Your piano will arrive ready to bring music into your new home.
Suddath can safely pack, move, and store any of your household goods with white-glove care in our climate-controlled warehouse, delivering them safely when you’re ready.
High-value items often require special coordination, packing and handling. Your dedicated, concierge move coordinator will oversee the move for your most valuable items. If you require additional services such as home cleaning, maintenance or landscaping, we can coordinate that as well.
Unique items or items that are particularly delicate, fragile or irregularly sized, may require their own tailored, custom crates built to protect them. Our team includes experts who will take measurements and build a crate to spec to protect these items during the move.

SAN ANTONIO LOCAL MOVING FAQ
Our best advice is to start on the moving process early. Especially if you’re moving during peak season, which is May through September, it’s important to reach out to a San Antonio local moving company early, so you have your pick.
If you know you’re going to be getting rid of a lot of items, getting started early will also be helpful as you won’t feel crunched with the time.
Organize all your boxes in the house so that they’re labeled with where they’re going, so that when the crew arrives, they’re ready to go and there are no delays. If there is anything you want to take with you, like medication or children’s toys, make sure those things are set aside in a designated area.
We also have put together a helpful moving checklist that will take you through moving week by week.
For us, it begins and ends with the quality of our staff and local San Antonio moving crew. That is why we invest so much in training and building up our people. We believe the moving industry is a career choice, not just a temporary job.
Suddath has a very thorough in-house training program called ‘Suddath University’ that our employees and local San Antonio movers go through, which covers everything our century of experience has taught us about packing, loading and customer service.
One of the ways we assist our crews in making sure your property is safe is through the high-quality home protection that we use at origin and destination, which includes floor protection, wrapping and padding. Making sure this is in place in all the areas needed is one of the first steps we take on moving day.
Our experience is really second-to-none in the San Antonio market, as well as Texas overall where we have six total locations. Our experience and tenure surpasses any other San Antonio local mover in town, and that passes onto our employees as well, many of whom have been with us for years.
Because of our experience and resources, we are able to attract and retain the best talent in the area, and provide them with the proper tools they need to succeed in their job and make sure each move goes as smoothly as possible.
We run background checks on every employee and contractor, 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, many customers ask if we work with contractors, and we do. Many of our van operators are contractors, but because of the volume of work Suddath has, there is only a negligible difference between them and our typical employees. They work exclusively for Suddath, and most have been with Suddath for years if not decades.
