FAQs by BB Flynn

1.Is Suddath recommended by The Villages?

Yes, we are. We have been dedicated to serving The Villages since this branch opened in 2011, but we have been operating in Florida since 1919. 

2.What advice or moving tips can you provide in selecting a mover?

It’s important to check with the Better Business Bureau for the rating of your local moving company, and make sure that they have a valid DOT (Department of Transportation) number. Don't pay large deposits, and see if they have an option for a binding estimate. Check online reviews if you can, or ask for references from friends or locals before you make a decision. 

3.What are the options for full-service packing?

Suddath offers everything from full-service move, where we pack and unpack everything for you, to partial packing, where we come in and help you pack to a certain degree. Or, you can simply pack everything yourself and we will come in on move day and make sure everything is wrapped, protected, and loaded onto the truck.

Both in your current home and your new home, we protect the floors with materials like cardboard or neoprene, as well as providing door jam protection. We pad your furniture in your home before taking it out, and then unpad it after delivery.

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

Suddath has compiled a pre-planned moving guide that gives you a detailed timeline, covering eight weeks before your move, with everything that you should be doing or thinking about in order to prepare for your move.

On the day of your move, our The Villages movers know what a stressful event this is in your life, and they are trained to communicate with you, and be sympathetic to the situation. They are highly trained and are there to relieve some of your stress by handling the move in the right way.

5.Can my possessions be stored with Suddath?

Yes. You can store your goods with us both short term and long term. If you’re doing an interstate move, it is important to note that short-term storage caps at 180 days. But with either type of storage, your items will be kept in a fully enclosed vault within a warehouse. With vault storage, our warehouse staff will pad wrap your valuables and carefully store them in the container. 

6.Does Suddath have air-conditioned storage?

There are no moving companies in The Villages area that have air-conditioned storage. Suddath does however have temperature-controlled storage, which means that our warehouse has commercial fans that run continuously for an average temperature of 80 degrees with very low humidity. Customers are welcome and encouraged to visit the warehouse, and we’re always happy to give you a tour.

7.Does Suddath guarantee the pricing on their estimates?

Yes, we do. We also provide an in-home or virtual walkthrough at no charge. You have the option to either schedule a time for our move coordinator to come to your home and walkthrough with you, or you can walk the coordinator through your home using your phone or tablet.

Both options are completely free to you, and your coordinator can help walk you through your options for the type of move you would like.

8.Does Suddath have used boxes we can have at no charge?

Yes, at Suddath locations used boxes are available at no charge most of the time, but quantity by box type varies. Speak to your move coordinator about this option. 

9.Does Suddath use other van lines to assist with a move?

No. Suddath uses only background checked, United-trained, uniformed professionals from our own agencies to assist our drivers with helping to load and unload our customers. We know exactly who we're putting in your house, and all of our crew members go through extensive training at Suddath University before coming to your house.

Suddath University is our own training facility at our headquarters in Jacksonville, FL where our drivers attend a week-long training in safety, packing process and paperwork, as well as in soft skills and customer service.

10.Will other customers be on the truck with me?

In most cases, yes. Very few customers have enough household goods to completely fill a truck. Household goods ship only on tractor-trailers which hold approximately 28,000 lbs. All customer’s household goods shipments are inventoried and carefully separated from each other in the trailer. When your delivery arrives, you will know you have received all your household goods as you check off the provided inventory list (or what we call a “bingo” sheet).

11.Will the truck load directly from my home?

Most of the time, yes. In some instances, the tractor trailer cannot access the customer’s home due to a number of possible reasons, which your move coordinator will identify during the survey. If that is the case, we will send in a smaller truck (what we call a “shuttle”) to load your household goods and take them to the larger truck.

12.What if you break something? How do I submit a claim?

Contact your move coordinator and ask for a claims form. Then, you would fill that form out, submit it back to your move coordinator and that person will take care of getting it to our claims department. From there, it will get assigned to an adjuster who will work with you on resolving your claim.

13.What do you do to ensure quality and customer satisfaction?

We have monthly safety meetings and quality meetings here 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, training on the U, which is an online class through United Van Lines, for additional training opportunities.

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

The folks here, they know this is family. We’re here eight to 10 hours a day and the people here are special. They're just awesome. That’s why we’ve won Suddath Branch of the Year for two years running!

It's not only the men and women that are out sweating every day during a move, but the folks inside the office who know that when anyone needs something, they've got to be there for them.

14.Do you offer any discard and donation programs?

Suddath participates in a donation program through our partnership with Move For Hunger, a non-profit organization that works with the moving and relocation industry to fight hunger in the United States. We gather unwanted non-perishable food items from our customers during the moving process, and then deliver them to local food banks in need.

This free service to our customers is also our chance to turn every one of our moves into a chance to make a difference in our local area, and across the country. Last year, our customers helped Suddath to donate over 41,600 lbs. of food. It’s a partnership that’s very important to us. 

15.What do you enjoy the most about working for Suddath?

I am fortunate to work for an organization that's celebrating its 100th year anniversary. There is a pride in the commitment to excellence that this moving company has had for the past century. We make sure our customers are taken care of. I’m fortunate every day that I am able to lead people who feel the same way, and that is probably the most enjoyable thing about working here.
