Trust Goes a Long Way
Richard R. handled everything like a pro. Our move dates kept changing because of Covid and he adjusted everything to work out seamlessly. There’s no way I could have coordinated a move for my family of 5 across the country during a pandemic but somehow Richard did just that and without a hitch. I would give 6 stars if they could figure out how to ship my kids. At least 1 of 3 was screaming the entire 3 days it took us to drive to our new home.

What a great group of people. We moved in middle of COVID cross country. Our stuff got to our new house within 4 days, with no damages. The team was professional and very communicative. Can not be happier with the experience.
San Jose, CA
Had 2 excellent hard working guys come and unload all our things professionally even though they were short handed until the afternoon. The driver, William Hernandez tried his best to make it easier for the crew coming later. His partner, Ramon Velasquez was very professional and never complained even when there were some difficulties. He was super friendly and always made sure I didn’t have to do any extra work I didn’t need to do. He had excellent manners.
San Jose, CA
William Hernandez was really outstanding driving carefully into our neighborhood and moving many things because they were short handed. He went above and beyond to help and we’re really appreciative.
San Jose, CA
Joaquin did a tremendous job helping me set up my move. He was willing to work with me as much as possible to make it as smooth and easy during an extremely stressful time. Richard did an amazing job keeping me in the loop as to where my stuff is and when it should be expected to be delivered. I couldn’t have asked for better service and it is worth every single penny. The day my stuff came was probably one of the hottest and the movers even wiped up their own sweat from my floor after they finished! That’s service!!
San Jose, CA
Great experience with William. Worked quickly and so politely. Makes moving so much easier!

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.
