Flexible Packing and Unpacking

Suddath offers three levels of packing and unpacking services for our customers, all the way from our team packing up every item in your house, to a partial move where we pack only what you need, and finally a DIY move, where you pack up everything yourself.

Your international moving coordinator will meet with you to determine your needs and budget. During this meeting, you choose the level of packing and debris removal that works best for you.

Inventory Prep

Every country around the world has its own set of regulations and customs processes entering the country during an international relocation. A move that doesn’t strictly comply with these regulations can quickly turn into an expensive situation. Suddath’s international movers have been trained to help you with the inventory process for your new country of residence.

Suddath is certified through the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) certification. That means that Suddath’s international shipments always adhere to the Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) regulations. This certification identifies security gaps and implements specific security measures and best practices.

Document Prep

Before your items make it to customs, we’ll help you run through the checklist of documents you need to complete. These documents will make sure that any specialty items needing to be declared at customs are easily accessed and approved to move on through. If you have pets, currency, or other items in need of proper documentation, Suddath can walk you through the process of completing and submitting each one.

While we cannot request the documents for you, we are more than happy to help you organize and complete them. Once you submit them, we’ll notify you as soon as we receive clearance.

Our move coordinator will meet with you to discuss how your items will get from Tampa to your new location. During this meeting, your international move coordinator will help you decide the options that work with your budget and timeline.

International Moving FAQ

How do ensure my items are safely loaded during my overseas move?

It begins with the training and vetting of our Tampa team. All Suddath crew members who enter a customer’s home are thoroughly vetted by our internal team through background checking and over 300 hours of training. Every Suddath driver is fully interstate qualified. While some van operators may be contractors, they are still required to complete and pass the same safety training and background screenings as our salaried employees.

Our team members spend significant time training at Suddath University at our headquarters in North Florida to ensure your items are safely loaded and all safety procedures are being followed. They are trained on packing techniques, loading/unloading safety instructions, and any international moving procedures.

What is valuation coverage?

Valuation coverage is not insurance. We recommend that you do insure your belongings. To do so, you will need to work with an insurance company. According to the law, a mover cannot sell you insurance. This law protects you from companies that would take advantage of that process.

Suddath, like other international moving companies, provides valuation coverage. It is an agreement between you and your moving company, and it determines the agreement for claims and the mover’s liability to cover those claims. It is required, according to federal law, that overseas moving companies offer valuation coverage to you. If they fail to do so, it may be a sign that they are a disreputable or “rogue” mover.

Valuation coverage guarantees that, if your goods are lost or damaged and the moving company is at fault, the mover agrees to pay the agreed-upon amount. For example, Suddath offers standard Released Value Protection (RVP) valuation coverage at $0.60 per pound of your shipment.

Learn more about your options in our valuation coverage blog post.

What if something gets broken during my international move; how do I submit a claim?

It is always our goal to make sure that your international relocation ends with no broken or damaged items. Our drivers and operators spend significant time in training at Suddath University in Jacksonville, Florida to ensure that does not happen. They are trained on packing techniques, loading/unloading safety instructions, and any international moving procedures.

However, in an international move, your items are being processed and handled in ways outside of our control, for example, by customs officers. In the rare case that one of your items is damaged, your Suddath move coordinator will assist you with the process of documenting your broken things and submitting a claim. Once the form is completed, a claims representative will reach out to you within 24 hours.
