MOVING COMPANY FAQ

What is a full-service move?

In the moving industry, a full-service move typically refers to a relocation that includes the following services: The moving company packs up all of your belongings, loads them onto a moving truck, and transports the load to your new home. When they arrive, they’ll unload everything and place your items exactly where you want them – they’ll even unpack and remove the boxes for you.

How much does a moving company typically cost?

The cost of a reputable moving company can range anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand, depending on the size and complexity of the move. Some of the factors that can affect the price of your move are the weight and volume of the load, the locations of your old house and the new one, and any optional moving services you require.

When you contact Suddath, we’ll go over all of your options with you and help you plan a move that fits your budget and personal preferences.

When you trust Suddath with your move, you’ll have access to a variety of flexible moving and storage services customized to meet your needs. After requesting a moving quote, someone from our team will contact you to schedule either an in-person walkthrough or a virtual one. This crucial step is to ensure the accuracy of the final quote so there are no surprises on moving day. We encourage you to get quotes from a few companies for comparison, but you’ll find that our pricing is competitive. Most importantly, with everything we provide with our services, employee training and availability, Suddath is a great value in the industry.

What is considered long-distance for movers?

When a move spans more 50 miles away from your origin but still takes place within the continental United States, it’s generally considered a long-distance move. A long-distance move could involve moving to a distant city within the same state, or it could mean crossing one or more state lines.

The other distance categories in the moving industry are “local moves” (under 50 miles) and “overseas” or “international moves,” which involve crossing the ocean and/or an international border. So, whether you’re in need of long-distance movers, local movers, or international movers, Suddath has you covered. We even specialize in commercial moving and corporate moving.

How much does moving internationally cost?

With an international move, the price is determined by factors including where you’re relocating to, the container size, whether or not the container will be shared, and the selected mode of transportation. A seasoned international moving company like Suddath will help you choose an appropriate container and will arrange to have your items transported by land, air, sea, or a combination of those. If you go with us, we can even help arrange for specialty services such as pet relocation and vehicle relocation.

When you choose Suddath as your international mover, you may find that our services are more affordable than you expect due to our industry standing and partnerships. Not only will we get you a good deal on international shipping, but we’ll support you in any way we can along the way. For example, we’ll work on your behalf if any vendor charges don’t match up with the original scope.

We’ll also let you know what kind of paperwork you’ll need and which items you are and are not allowed to ship. Once we pack up your items, we’ll arrange to have them transported as efficiently as possible. One of the things that set Suddath apart from other movers is that we assign you a personal move counselor to guide you through the entire international moving process.

Since Suddath is a true international mover, we have a trusted network of global partners, we’re prepared to move you anywhere in the world.

How do I choose an international moving company?

Relocating to another country is a serious undertaking, and there’s a lot that can go wrong. If you’re planning an international move, it’s vital to choose reliable movers with a proven track record and extensive experience with this kind of move. Ask a potential mover how long they’ve been in business, how much experience they have with international moves, and what credentials they hold as international movers.

Unfortunately, moving companies that mainly handle domestic moves can end up causing unnecessary delays due to their inexperience. Experienced companies know that items need to be packed a certain way, all paperwork must be in order, and certain items cannot be shipped to your destination country. Hiring a moving company with customs clearance experience to pack your items is vital because it will ensure they are ready for customs.

Suddath has been in business for more than 100 years and has numerous industry accreditations and affiliations. We understand the often-intricate logistics associated with an overseas move and have experience in navigating issues that people newer to this industry may not be aware of. Our expert moving team can minimize your stress by handling the packing and shipping and also manage the risks associated with this type of move.

What is the price of a commercial move?

No set price exists for a commercial move. One of the highest costs, though, accrues because of lost revenue associated with business interruption of production or service. To keep those costs as low as possible, work with highly efficient, experienced commercial movers who will streamline the process.

Actual costs charged by a commercial moving company firm usually depend upon the amount of planning required; prep time; and the weight and volume of transported goods. Another factor: the number of hours involved in the move, which means you’ll once again benefit from a streamlined timeframe.

To help you achieve that, Suddath uses award-winning technology that provides faster, more accurate estimates and also reduces the time involved in the move—and we’re the only commercial movers with that technology. Here are ways to contact our commercial moving pros to get started.

What are preparation tips for an employee doing a corporate move?

From an employee’s perspective, if you’re relocating, you can start sorting through your belongings four to six weeks before the move. Assess whether you can donate or discard rarely used items to de-clutter. You can also verify what’s covered in your relocation package; they often include professional packing and unpacking services, which will reduce the amount of prep work you’d need to do. In that case, experts recommend taking an inventory of your belongings, paring down what you don’t need and then organizing the rest.

Most likely, your employer has arranged for your move with a reputable moving company. When you know you’re being relocated, your employer should put you in touch with their corporate movers. By planning well in advance of the move, they can help with preparing and then executing your relocation. By choosing Suddath as your corporate movers, you will have a dedicated employee relocation specialist to assist you throughout the process. And Suddath offers great resources to prepare for a move if you’re ready to get started.

Why should our company choose Suddath for our corporate relocation?

They can get settled into their new roles quickly, contributing their talents to your company in their new location.
