TRUST GOES A LONG WAY
Otis and Tony were on time, got right to work and had us moved out in less than 2 hours for a 1-bedroom apartment. They were courteous, professional, hard-working and efficient. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a long-distance move!
This review is for Sheldon, Gerald, and Myles. They were excellent and speedy!
Both Erick and Paco were amazing! Professional, helpful and so timely, I really appreciated the both of them!

Sheldon and team (Brandon and Gerald) were awesome and great to work with.
Sheldon and Gerald worked non stop. They took their time to blanket all fragile items and were extremely professional and friendly. Enjoyed hearing Sheldon’s family stories.
So professional and friendly! I’ve had a nightmare with movers breaking items, losing items, or being disrespectful/rude in general, trying to upcharge for everything they could. These gentleman were efficient, cautious, and so polite/friendly. I will only be using this company in the future.
Sheldon and Gerald Brandon did a great job packing and preparing my house to be shipped. They were both very detailed, thorough and professional. Thank you
Arualdo and his crew did a great job with our local move. Everyone was very professional and took the care to make sure our property was handled with care.
Arualdo and crew did an excellent job packing and loading up my mother’s 3 bedroom home. The 3 man crew was on time, friendly, and respected the covid guidelines. They were extra careful with the antique furniture and knew the sentimental importance. We hope they can help us again when we need services out of storage.

THE VILLAGES LOCAL MOVING FAQ
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 local move. Our local 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. We're going to try to take the stress off your plate, and we're going to handle this move the right way.
In Central Florida, 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 warehouse. With vault storage, our warehouse staff will carefully store and pad wrap your valuables in the container.
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 crews 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 local moves. So, we lean on those folks a lot too to help the new people coming on board.
