Awards

4x Branch of the Year Winner

Suddath Central Florida is the winner of Suddath's Branch of the Year for 2019 - the fourth year in a row our team has won! 

The award was presented by Senior Vice President Walter Myers at the Moving & Logistics Leadership Meeting in Jacksonville on Tuesday, February 18.

“The Central Florida branch continues to raise the bar, and as a result, this year we saw the best overall scores across the network,” said Myers. Branch of the Year is awarded based on several criteria including profitability, safety, customer surveys and online customer ratings.

Driver Spotlight

Meet Mike Morrissey, Suddath Central Florida Driver

Meet Mike Morrissey, a Suddath driver in Central Florida who is a two-time Suddath Van Operator of the Year, as well as winning United Van Lines' Driver of the Year in 2018.

Driving for over 30 years, Mike has spent nearly 20 of those years with Suddath. He works with his best friend, Pat, and their traveling buddy is Owen the Chihuahua.

According to Operations, "Mike continues to set the standard in our industry. He takes great care of all our customers by understanding their needs and delivering exceptional results every time."

Leadership

BB Flynn, Central Florida Vice President and General Manager

Bernard "BB" Flynn was attracted to Suddath because of the company's family feel, heritage, diversified services, and well-respected reputation in the industry. He appreciates the integrity of Suddath employees, the practice of rewarding excellence, and always following through on commitments. When it comes to what he admires most about the employees in his Central Florida branch locations, BB is moved by their dedication and teamwork. Their genuine compassion is evident and naturally spills into their interaction with, and work for, our customers. 

Managed by BB, The Villages recently won the Suddath Branch of the Year Award in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 and he is continuously in the hunt to achieve that same success again in the years to come. He is laser-focused on safety and quality excellence – believing in doing things right or making it right, every time. Period.

THE VILLAGES MOVERS FAQ

Do I need valuation coverage for my move?

Yes. We offer two options, and you would choose the option that fits you best. If you would like the minimum coverage, which is at no cost, that coverage gets you $0.60 per pound per article. It is the most economical option that we have, but it only provides minimal protection.

Also, we do offer full value protection if you would like to replace or have the item repaired to the condition that we received it in. If something were to be damaged, there is a cost for that, but it's $6.00 per 10,000 lbs. So, if you have a 10,000-pound shipment, for example, you'll have $60,000 in coverage. Again though, the standard is $0.60 per lb. If something were to get damaged, it would get weighed, multiplied by the $0.60, and that's what you would be reimbursed for the claim.

What if you break something during my move? How do I submit a claim?

We work hard to take care of your items. However, should there be a damaged item, you would get in touch with your Villages move coordinator and ask for a claims form. You would fill that out and submit it back to them, and then that person will get it to our claims department, where it will get assigned to an adjuster, and they will work with you on resolving your claim.

What are my different options for a moving estimate? How can you simplify the process for me?

There are two options. We have a binding estimate, or a binding cost of these services specified in advance, that will give you the cost of the move, and then we have a non-binding estimate. A non-binding is used when you're not exactly sure what's moving. For example, you may not know yet if your daughter's going to move with you, or if the things in the garage are going. Non-binding leaves options open, but there could be additional charges if weight goes higher than anticipated.

I'm looking to move internationally. Can Suddath help?

Suddath makes international moving easy and provides you with real value at a competitive price. Our experience, service, flexibility, and credibility will take you nearly anywhere in the world with the confidence that everything is being expertly handled along the way. We assign you a personal move counselor who's available to answer questions and help you reach your destination as quickly as possible. Your single-point-of-contact will guide you through the entire process, including customs and documentation, international insurance coverage options, and oversee all of the logistics associated with your move abroad.
 
Suddath has had the distinct honor of winning the FEM EMMA International Moving Company of the Year award five times in the past seven years: in 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018 and again in 2019. The award highlights Suddath’s positive impact on our clients and their assignees, innovation and cost management and dedication to quality.

What do you do to ensure my items and property are safe and secure during the moving process?

Part of our standard operating procedure at Suddath is, as soon as our professional movers come in and meet you, we're going to lay extensive floor protection. If you have hardwood floors, we're going to put down cardboard, we're going to wrap banisters, and if you have a main thoroughfare that's a stairway, it's going to get carpet shield. We have another neoprene-type rug runner we lay down in the area where we're going to operate the most, and door jamb covers to make sure doors don't get chipped up.

Our movers wrap all of your furniture inside of your house before bringing it to the truck and do the same when we're at the destination, making the delivery. Everything comes off the truck padded into the designated area, unwrapped and placed in your desired location, minimizing the possibility of damages.

Do you use your own people, or do you contract some work out?

Our average tenure with our subcontractors runs about 11 years here with us. All of them are background checked, making sure we know whom we're putting in your house. Our movers go through extensive training before coming to your house. There's no on the job learning. That's for both our employee and sub-contractor personnel.

You would never know who's an employee and who's a contractor because they are an extension of us. All our contractors here are solely contracted with Suddath, so they're not at another moving company one day and at Suddath the next.

Moving can be stressful. What do you do to make it easier for me?

Suddath offers a preplanned moving guide that is going to give you an eight-week timeline of things that you should be doing to get prepared for your move. Our movers know how stressful this can be in your life. They do an excellent job of letting you know that we're here, that we understand what we need to do, and we're going to take care of your stuff. Our moving company is going to try to take the stress off your plate, and we're going to handle this move the right way.

Can my possessions be temporarily stored with Suddath?

Yes. We have 10,000 square feet of climate-controlled storage space. From there, the primary difference between short- and long-term or permanent storage is the timeframe for which your items will be stored. For interstate moves, remember that short-term storage caps at 180 days.

In either case, your items will be stored in a fully-enclosed vault within our Ocala warehouse. With vault storage, our warehouse staff will carefully store and pad wrap your valuables in the container.

What do you do to ensure customer satisfaction?

We have monthly safety meetings and quality meetings to go over any new topics or standards. We also have Suddath University located at our headquarters in Jacksonville, where we send our movers and our drivers to get annual training. We also do that here at the facility, with our background checks and training on the U, which is an online class through Unigroup, for additional training opportunities.

Also, we have an extensive tenure with most of our staff in Central Florida, not only in the office but out working moves. So, we lean on those folks a lot too to help the new people coming on board.

What commercial moving services do you offer, and what commercial environments do you specialize in?

All commercial moving. If it moves, we move it. We have rigging, and we have the installation of commercial furniture. I mean anything that needs to happen associated with an office move or office building, we can handle it.
 
We also do a lot of hospitality logistics projects, because Orlando has the second largest number of hotel rooms behind Vegas. Typically, with hotel and resort renovations, we go in and remove all the existing unwanted FF&E. If the hotel has a liquidator, we'll get it to the liquidator.
 
Then comes all the carpet and paint changes, so we will store all the new items – all the sofas, the new beds, everything that's going to go in that room. When it's ready, we go in and hang the TV. We hang the artwork and the mirrors, and then we place everything back in that room.
