Trust Goes a Long Way
I ended up not relocating (life happens!) but Danny Diaz was really helpful in getting me a very detailed quote and then working with me to bring the weight and price down. He was always available, friendly, and accommodating. I would absolutely hire Suddath if/when I end up moving long distance.

Danny Diaz was our relocation consultant, and he was excellent! He took care of everything quickly and answered all of our questions. He even called us on a weekend to review our quotes. We truly appreciated all of his hard work, and made choosing Suddath/United Van lines easy!

On a day of 110 + degree heat, the crew did a great job getting us packed and unpacked quickly. The crew was professional and polite. Customer service was responsive – very happy.
San Jose, CA
I would highly recommend Suddath & Allied Van Lines. Moving across the country can be stressful, but the service provided was top class. This included an accurate estimate & organization with Joaquin, to the professionalism of the movers (both teams on the West & East coast), to the moving support by Jessica, to the transport of my SUV. Thank you, and I would certainly use the service again should it be needed.
San Jose, CA
Moving always makes me nervous, so I asked a close friend for a recommendation–and he used Suddath twice in the past year and expressed a lot of confidence in how they operate. Now I understand why! Suddath helped us relocate from SF to LA and they did an incredible job from start to finish. The virtual tour was a breeze; communication up until the move date, throughout, and even after was fluid; our packing and loading team was very efficient; and most importantly, all of our household goods made it safely and intact without a single item breaking. I highly recommend Suddath and will certainly reach out to them again for any future moves!

I’m halfway through my move from the SF Bay area to the midwest, and I want to sing the praises of the Suddath team who has taken care of me so far. Keith my estimator was friendly, professional, and efficient. The moving team who came to pick up my furniture and boxes, Fernando and Felipe, were wonderful. Fernando explained the whole process to me, and he and Felipe were very careful with my home and my things as they disassembled everything and loaded them into the “pods” on the truck. They did such a great job that they fit my things into two “pods” rather than the three that it was estimated that I would need, which might end up saving me money. I cannot thank them enough, and I only hope that my movers who unload my things at my new home will be as professional, efficient, and careful as Fernando and Felipe. Thank you!
San Jose, CA
Fantastic service start to finish. Our crew was amazing, and we will request them for our next move. They deserve 20 stars. Their professional care reduced our stress in the move. We were so impressed. Thanks to all, and special extra thanks to Joaquin and Shelley for their help too.
San Jose, CA
Dream movers – from sales to loading to unloading and coordination – everyone was competent, responsive and had high attention to details. Nothing was broken or damaged in the journey. Ken, Brenda and local movers in both SF and Austin were so fantastic. I would definitely choose them again for another move. Thank you for helping during a very stressful process.
San Jose, CA
The most incredible crew – Fernando, Fernando, Miguel, Eric, and Luis – were the best movers I have ever had. They worked incredibly hard all day long. They were efficient, respectful, communicative, and eager to help. They treated all my belongings with care. They were eager to help and no matter how long the day lasted, always had a smile. Moving has never been easier. Thank you! I would use them again and recommend them to all friends and family

FEATURED NEWS AND INFO
As you work with your mover, you’ll be introduced to new concepts and terms. From selecting a moving company to organizing your home, here are the most common terms associated with moving.Read More
SAN JOSE MOVING FAQ
Valuation is a great tool for peace of mind. Your standard coverage, which you automatically receive at no cost, will compensate $0.60 per lb. for damaged items. This can be significantly less than the value of many items in a home, so valuation coverage will account for that gap. Our San Jose movers are trained professionals, but even our most prepared and tenured professionals have had damage occur on their moves. It’s also always a good idea to check with your own homeowner’s policy to determine coverage you may already have.
Relocations have many variables, so depending on the size and type of move you may be able to secure a specific load day, but it is always beneficial to have flexibility on loading days. While you can choose any day to load your stuff, certain days may be more expensive based on a few factors. For instance, to keep costs as low as possible, there may be multiple shipments on a single truck since few people can actually fill up a trailer when moving.
Your San Jose move coordinator can provide you with a comprehensive guide to help navigate the weeks and days before your move. It includes everything from defrosting the refrigerator to contacting your phone carrier.
One significant preparation that is important, and directly related to your move, is ensuring that you designate an area (like a closet, drawer or small room) to put things in that you do not want relocated. This would include medicine, passports, your favorite pillow, or important toys for your children. Things move very fast on move day and this easy step can ensure you have what you need while traveling to your destination.
Parking can be a challenge on the busy streets in the Bay Area. Our San Jose movers have the local experience to know where we might experience issues and take steps to avoid them. For instance, parking permits might be needed to reserve a space large enough for the truck to park to load and unload your household goods. So, we secure these permits in advance with enough notice based off information gathered from you during your moving survey.
Unfortunately claims do occur from time to time. Your dedicated move coordinator will supply you with a claim form, and you will have a designated professional claims coordinator who will walk you through the process.
Suddath will supply you with a straightforward and easy-to-interpret moving quote. We provide free in-home or virtual walkthroughs – which are done directly from your phone or tablet – according to your preference. You can have a binding quote, which is based off that walkthrough, or a non-binding quote, which is based off the total weight of your move.
Your San Jose move coordinator will make sure that you are aware of the different options we can provide but depending on the type of move you are looking to have serviced, you may have variables within that quote. For example, you may want to understand the cost difference between you packing your own belongings or having Suddath perform a full-service pack.
The core of our business is to provide safe and secure relocation of your household goods, and that starts with our people. All van operators, packers and movers undergo thorough background checks and drug testing for your peace of mind. They undergo thorough training in both safety and in our packing and moving processes at Suddath University at our Jacksonville, FL location.
Whether being transported on our locked trailers or being stored in our secure facilities, you can feel confident knowing that your goods are in safe hands with our local San Jose moving company.
In the Bay Area and across the country Suddath is differentiated by the people who work for us. These folks understand that what they do matters and put customers first in all that they do, whether that’s a simply call to see how things are going, or the company’s investment in the next technology-driven solution. That culture of putting the customer first is contagious and we are lucky to have built a century-old organization around that philosophy.
We understand moving can be stressful. To help ease some of that, and give you guidance throughout the process, Suddath provides you a single point of contact to assist you through your entire move. This professional customer service coordinator will stay in constant communication and be there to answer questions, schedule dates and make sure your move is progressing as planned.
Also, all our van operators train in soft skills and customer service at Suddath University, our own internal training program, which makes them an asset on moving day, to help you trust that your move is in capable hands.
Our industry does unfortunately have some predatory establishments that can take advantage of the naïve consumer. You can protect yourself by choosing a moving company affiliated with a major van line, like United Van Lines. In San Jose, California, you can ensure you are working with a trusted organization by checking if they are members of the California Moving and Storage Association, and also on file with the Public Utilities Commission as a licensed mover.
Yes. The primary difference between short (commonly referred to as storage in transit or S.I.T.) and long-term storage (also known as permanent storage), is the timeframe for which your household items will be stored. I think it’s important to note that for interstate moves, short-term storage caps at 180 days. In either case, your items will be stored in a fully-enclosed and locked storage vault within our San Jose warehouse. With vault storage, our warehouse staff will pad wrap your valuables and carefully store them in the container.
We participate in a discard and donate program through our partnership with Move For Hunger, a non-profit organization that teams up with those of us in the moving and relocation industries to fight hunger. We collect non-perishable food items from our customers – things they might not want to take with them anyway – and deliver them to local food banks in San Jose.
It’s a free service to customers and turns every move into an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of people in need. Suddath and our customers donated over 41,600 lbs. of food in past years to Move For Hunger through this very important partnership.
Suddath does have a declutter program to help you temporarily store your items using our storage containers at a very reasonable price. Ask your San Jose move coordinator to explain the declutter program in detail during your in-home survey, but essentially, it can be a great solution to adding extra value to your home when in the process of selling it. Then, when you’re ready, we can deliver your goods back to you.
Suddath offers all levels of commercial moving services. Our team performs everything from space planning to installation labor. If you have a workspace need, we have a solution.
We work in several Fortune 500 company workplaces in the area providing a plethora of services. We specialize in MAC (moves, adds and changes) and can put together customized MAC programs for our clients. Our services range from something as small as installing a keyboard tray up to several thousand cubicle reconfigurations. We even have ergonomic evaluation technicians to help provide your team a safe and comfortable place to work.
