The Suddath Companies today announced the launch of its new local moving brand, MoveDay, in Orlando. With this new brand, Suddath will help make local moving easier and more efficient for customers as the Orlando area continues to see an influx of growth in the housing market.
“Given the level of activity in the Orlando housing market, this is an ideal time to provide customers with better and more flexible options to meet their unique moving needs,” said Mike Brannigan, Suddath CEO. “The MoveDay brand was created to ease the stress of a traditional local move, using innovative technology to give customers greater visibility into the moving process and improve the overall customer experience.”
MoveDay leverages Suddath’s 100+ years of moving expertise and will provide unique services for people moving within a 50-mile radius around the Orlando area. Research shows 31 million Americans move each year, or almost 10% of the U.S. population. However, only 1 in 4 Americans move more than 500 miles from their old home, increasing the demand for local moves.
“Through our research in our current markets around the U.S., we found that 82% of Americans move within their home state, 40% of which are within 50 miles of their old home,” said Darren Cook, MoveDay Vice President. “In addition, the great influx of new residents to Florida has only increased the number of moves at the local level within the state, putting pressure on many local moving companies and potentially making moving more stressful for customers, especially during peak summer months. With local moves continuing to increase, our goal is to help alleviate some of the pains that can often come with the moving process.”
MoveDay emphasizes ‘your move, your way’ by offering flexible services that consumers can choose and change online 24/7 through a user-friendly portal. The portal provides customers with complete visibility into pricing, the scope of services and scheduling, as well as access to an attentive and caring team of professionals. It also serves as a one-stop-shop with easy insights into every aspect of the move, enabling customers to track and communicate directly with their moving crew.
“The MoveDay customer portal is really going to be a game-changer for local moves,” said Cook. “Designed based on direct customer inputs and feedback, it provides automatic updates as the move status changes and lets customers confirm items and sign documents in advance. This streamlined approach helps reduce anxiety during the move, making the process easier and more efficient for customers.”
Safety is also a critical part of the MoveDay brand. Our experienced crews and drivers have been fully background-checked, vetted and trained to our exacting standards. Through MoveDay’s portal, customers can virtually “meet” their moving team ahead of time and access their profiles, names, position titles and pictures.
Since there is no one-size-fits-all approach to moving, MoveDay offers flexible services ranging from full-service, to packing help, to labor-only moves. Customers can personalize moves around their specific needs and budget, giving them greater flexibility and control. It also takes the guesswork out of pricing, with the option of instant online estimates to determine the best services for each move and total cost. Storage services are also available for short-term and long-term needs, including round-the-clock monitoring and climate-controlled storage options.
