FlatRate understands the specific challenges of moving in NYC. We were born here.

In 20 years of business, we’ve seen it all and gotten smarter with every move.

We’re the most-recommended mover in NYC. Because…

  • We pay attention to the details.
  • We never change our price.
  • We’re fair and upfront.
  • We make move day a happy day.

Whether you’re moving across town or within the same building, call us for a Move Plan and a flat rate price. From our first interaction, you’ll see why New Yorkers love FlatRate.

Our process for local moves:

1. We create an inventory together
We start by working with you to create a thorough inventory of the goods you want moved. No detail is too small.

2. We add any extra services
We offer a range of optional services to make your move easy. Take a look at our list. You may never have thought of some of the services we offer. We have carpenters on staff for crating needs. Locksmiths, cleaning service, and IT experts can be called in to take care of details in your new home or old.

3. We issue a Move Plan with a Flat Rate price
Once we understand the details, we’ll issue a comprehensive move plan describing the move in detail–who, what, when, where and what. This document will lock in your flat rate price.

4. We pack or you do
If you are packing yourself, we can recommend the proper type and amount of materials and deliver them in advance. Or we can take care of the packing and unpacking for you. Some items are already accounted for in our flat rate:

  • lamps
  • artwork
  • hanging clothes
  • TVs and electronics

5. You take care of building details
Many buildings in NYC have specific requirements for insurance and the use of elevators and loading docks. These details are up to you. Make sure you contact building management well in advance of the move and let us know anything we need to know.

6. We start moving!­
Our team arrives at the scheduled time on your moving day and gets to work. They:

  • protect corners and floors
  • wrap and protect all listed furniture
  • disassemble any items that need it
  • pack electronics and art
  • load the truck

7. We meet you at your destination
When you’re ready for us, we’ll put your items where you tell us in your new home. We leave when you are completely satisfied.
