Local Moves

We know the cities we service like the back of our hands. And for over 20 years, we've coped with everything a big city can dish out and learned from each move.

So whether you're moving to a new neighborhood or staying in the same building, call us for a comprehensive Move Plan and an all-inclusive price.

  • We pay attention to details
  • We never change price or 'bait and switch'
  • We're honest and courteous
  • We're here to help you
We the Local Movers

Here's how we do it:

  1. We sit down with you to create an inventory
    A good move starts with good planning. So we start by creating a complete inventory of everything that needs to be moved. Prefer a home visit? No problem, we're happy to come to you.
  2. We create a custom Move Plan and give a FlatRate fixed price
    Once we've got the details down pat, we'll issue a comprehensive move plan describing the who, what, when, and where - and locking in your all-inclusive price.
  3. If you need something extra, we can handle it
    Have some special requirements? No problem for us. Our optional services range from on-staff carpenters who make crates to IT experts who transfer computer systems. Need cleaning services? We've got those too.
  4. We pack for you
    Want to pack yourself? We can recommend materials and deliver them to your doorstep. Otherwise, we pack - and unpack - with unparalleled efficiency and we offer a guaranteed price that includes packing service for:
    • lamps
    • artwork
    • hanging clothes
    • TVs and electronics
  5. We're careful and courteous with building management
    Because so many buildings regulate the use of their elevators and loading docks or have specific insurance requirements, we make sure to contact building management well in advance. (Chances are, we've been there before.)
  6. We don't miss any details
    On moving day, we arrive with two extra boxes in case there's something you forgot to pack. We also come with two UPCYCLE boxes so your unwanted goods can go to the Salvation Army. Then we deliver them for you. Free of charge.
  7. We get to work-right away
    Our team shows up at the scheduled time and gets right down to work. If they are more than half an hour late, we give you a $50 refund. Then we start to:
    • protect corners and floors
    • disassemble items that must be moved in pieces
    • protect all listed furniture
    • pack electronics and art
    • load the truck
  8. We meet you at your destination
    We'll put your items in your new home exactly where you want them. And we won't leave until you're completely satisfied.

Flatrate Moving Company

Careers at FlatRate Moving ®

Why come and work with us here at FlatRate? Well, if you want to work for a company that recognizes good service and loyalty then you're in the right place. We reward both these qualities with quick career progression whether you're based in one of our depots, business centers or offices. We're the type of company that likes to promote from within and train our staff in areas such as customer service and handling fragile goods. As a company we care about our employees just as much as we do our customers. Come and work for us and receive some of the best financial rewards in the industry as well as health and dental insurance, paid vacations, and regular incentives to keep you motivated and coming to work with a smile on your face.

Why choose FlatRate over any other company in New York City when you're looking to move home or office?

Well, for starters - as our name suggests - you'll be given a cost that won't increase as your move progresses (provided your inventory stays the same of course). You'll be provided with an easy-to-understand Move Plan which will detail every stage of your relocation so that you'll know exactly what's happening and when. We can always personalize this to suit your individual needs.

We strive for excellent customer services and always put our customer's needs first - just check out any of our reviews on sites such as Yelp! as you'll see that's exactly the case. You may also note that we have six locations in the biggest cities in the US, have an office in London, and association storage facilities in 160 outlets around the globe.

We complete more than 2,000 moves every month - which makes us one of the city's largest moving companies. That wouldn't be the case if we weren't capable of providing a top notch service. Most of our customers have been recommended by family and friends - a fact we're very proud of here at FlatRate.
