Josh Santos was great to work with throughout the process of my move. He was always cheerful and helpful and a joy to talk with! Also, both crews (packing and delivery) were great.
We worked with Brian from Suddath to help us move a large amount of equipment to a new location on the Microsoft Campus. We ran into some challenges but they were always positive, patient and willing to find solutions to make the move a success. We highly recommend!
We’re taking this opportunity to thank the Suddath team for an outstanding relocation from Seattle to our new home in University Place, WA. From the onset of our relocation through to our recent delivery, we have been very well cared for by the Suddath team. The delivery team were prompt, professional, and extremely courteous throughout the two days they worked delivering our household goods. Our goods arrived in great condition and were placed throughout our home as we requested. These men worked tirelessly, carefully, and safely for both days. Special thanks, also, to each of the Suddath team who worked behind the scenes to make this a great move. Our relocation was a Job Well Done. We would be pleased to recommend Suddath to anyone considering a household relocation.
I’ve been relocated several times, but this one was by far the best. The crew was incredibly fast at both ends, and nothing was damaged. I would recommend Suddath and our driver Jim to anybody looking for a move. Thanks for taking care of my family and I.
The entire team was AMAZING! This move was such a pleasant experience all the way around. From start to finish, they were great! Most importantly, we received our stuff extremely quick!!! I would highly recommend them and definitely use them again in the future.
Movers were fast, present and communicative. All our things arrived in advance of expectations and were as we left them. Would definitely use them again.
We had to move our entire theater on a tight deadline. (Our new landlord finally confirmed with us at the last minute.) Suddath gave us a quote on Thursday and started the move at 8 a.m. Friday, amazingly finishing late that afternoon. They worked fast and hard but carefully. Steven, James, John and their team all had great attitudes despite the heat and demanding work. Thank you all!
I highly recommend Suddath to everyone. Our move to the new office suite went very smooth, thanks to Jay Logan and his crew.
Had a small move done about a week ago. Everything went very smooth! Jordan and Kevin were speedy and efficient. Definitely glad I called Suddath and they were able to help me very promptly during these crazy virus times. Can’t thank you enough.

SEATTLE MOVING FAQ
There are a lot of different things you can do to prepare for your move. It depends on the level of service that Suddath will be providing. If Suddath is doing a full-service pack for you, you’ll just need to make sure things are organized for us to come in and help you pack – such as clearing out all the items that you want to give away. If we're just doing the loading and you’re packing for yourself, you’ll need to organize your goods, identifying items that will go with the movers and clearly separating out what you want to stay with you.
For customers in Seattle, the city landscape does offer a lot of hills. There are challenges with the load trucks not having easy access to some locations. To accommodate that, we do have shuttle services (aka smaller, more accessible trucks) from the warehouses or from the larger truck to work with the smaller spaces in those tight roads.
For a business move, there are also the usual issues that come along with a move in a large city – traffic, parking permits and time constraints. Suddath leverages its experience in the area to mitigate those issues in order to not slow the process. For example, in an office move Suddath creates a customized move plan that factors in any access, permitting or timing issues so that it can get to work upon entry. We provide full transparency so that everyone from the crew to internal stakeholders are on the same page, working off the same plan.
For commercial moving, Suddath offers a broad menu of services from small office moves to ongoing MAC solutions supported by its suite of award-winning technology. If you’re moving employees to a different space or building, Suddath takes care of everything from your moving and warehousing needs, to IT disconnect and reconnect services for your relocation. Suddath can even decommission any furniture you’re not taking with you.
The teams are experienced in even the most challenging relocation environments. Suddath uses specialized tools, techniques and technology that fit your unique industry requirements to simplify the move process and avoid costly mistakes. In the Seattle area, Suddath partner with some of the largest technology companies and conglomerates to manage commercial moves and ongoing projects.
The hospitality logistics team is well suited and equipped to help with all phases of a hotel remodel, and even new construction. When it comes to the hospitality field, Suddath offers services such as project management, warehousing and distribution/sequencing, FF&E installation and transportation management. Suddath hospitality services are scalable, covering everything from business-class hotel chains like the Hilton Garden Inn to large international resorts, like Baha Mar in the Bahamas. Suddath’s services and project management work together to make sure that your project is installed both on time and on budget.
In the unfortunate and unlikely event of damage, we have a simple two-step claims process to expedite claims as quickly and easily as possible. First, speak with your dedicated move counselor. They will make sure you receive the claims form, and any other pertinent information. Then, you will submit that form and the appropriate information to the claims department, who will assign an individual person to help you through the process using the original documentation. They will identify the value of the damaged items and communicate the appropriate resolution, whether that would be repairing or replacing the item.
Suddath has a couple different options in obtaining a moving estimate for your international household goods move.
It can schedule an in-home survey, where a move coordinator will come to your home to not only take note of the amount you need to move, but also understand the access to your house and available parking spaces in order to plan what moving day will entail. This avoids any issues or delays on the actual moving day. They will simply be doing a count of your items and establishing an estimated weight and to identify any items that might be unique to your shipment or any high-value items of concern for you.
Suddath also offers a virtual walkthrough, where you will go through your house using your smartphone or tablet with a moving coordinator over a Skype or Facetime-type application.
The process would ultimately be the same. Although we’re as thorough as possible in the virtual walkthrough, the in-person estimate may be better if you have a large house.
We have several processes, protocols and documents that Suddath relies on for control and accountability. This includes a detailed inventory that itemizes all your things and notes any preexisting damage.
Through its industry-first, proprietary technology called Tracker, Suddath provides full transparency to you during the moving process. This includes providing control and visibility to you, and accountability to Suddath, every time your goods changes hands from origin to final destination in your new space. With Tracker, you can even watch in real-time as each of your employees’ workstations are set up and go back online.
