Suddath Relocation Systems Wins Top Van Line Agency Award for 2016


We are so proud to announce that Suddath Relocation Systems has won the highly-coveted 2016 Moving & Storage Agent of the Year Service Excellence Award from the American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA). Suddath was selected for the award by a panel of experts from more than 2,400 eligible companies across the country.


The Agent of the Year Award reflects AMSA’s and the industry’s commitment to excellent customer service, and is presented to agents nominated by their affiliated van line based on customer surveys and van line experience. Nominations are judged primarily on customer service assessments and other industry awards and recognitions. Consideration is also given to factors such as leadership, innovation, community involvement, and activities that enhance the industry’s image.


“Congratulations to Suddath Relocation Systems for this recognition of their dedication to customer satisfaction, high quality moving services, and support for the local community,” said Scott Michael, AMSA president and CEO. “Suddath has demonstrated a strong commitment to maintaining top service levels and commitment to charitable causes in the communities they serve. We salute them for their success and accomplishments.”


A family company, born and bred in Jacksonville, Florida, Suddath has grown from one spirited entrepreneur with a cart and two mules to a global company that moves people, businesses and products across town or around the world. Suddath has more than 2,000 employees globally, over 30 locations and 2.5 million square feet of warehouse space throughout the United States, operations in Hong Kong, London, Shanghai, and strategic alliances serving more than 150 countries.


“Suddath is very honored to receive the AMSA Agent of the Year award,” said Mike Brannigan, president and CEO of Suddath. “We strive to reimagine the way the world moves for our customers each and every day, and I could not be more proud of the entire Suddath team for earning this very special designation.”


Each year AMSA recognizes the industry’s best performing and highest achieving individuals and companies. The 2016 industry awards will be presented during AMSA’s 98th Annual Education Conference & Expo in Palm Springs, Calif., on February 28.

Van Operator Referral Payment Program

Hello everyone,


Hope all of you and your families had a safe and happy holiday season.  Welcome to a new year, and a fresh start. 


As we move into the new year, I would like to take a moment to remind, or let you know about a van operator referral payment program that we have at Suddath.  This policy is in place for when you have a friend or colleague in the business that you feel would be a great fit with the Suddath team, and you assist with bringing them onto the team.  All we ask you to do is contact your branch General Manager, Operations Manager, Bill Roys here in LDD, or myself, and give us their information.  We will handle the rest of the recruiting, and qualification process.  When you contact us to give us the lead, we will notate in our recruiting system that you initiated the lead, so that we have documentation showing your role in the recruiting.  Upon completion of a newly recruited contractor’s first settlement with us you will be paid the referral bonus as outlined below.  This is an opportunity to add some extra cash to your bottom line, and also help us put more high quality van operators such as yourself in the system.  This program changes from time to time, so feel free to contact me to discuss the current program at the point you are referring someone.


We will closely monitor our fleet level and volume to ensure we stay at a fleet size that we can support.  We know that is a concern for all, and are very aware of the impact that can have to your business.  We thank you in advance for your support and high quality referrals.  Feel free to contact me should you have any questions, or wish to get more details on this program.  Stay safe out there, and thank you very much for your partnership.
