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.
