FlatRate and the Salvation Army: Making moves mean more

In partnership with the Salvation Army, our UPCYCLE Program aids customers who wish to discard new or gently used items. For each move, FlatRate provides two free UPCYCLE boxes to fill with toys, books, clothes, or small household goods. We then transport the UPCYCLE boxes to the Salvation Army without charge. From there, the goods are distributed to the Salvation Army's New York area stores.

Why this program?

We know that people often wish to discard possessions when they move. But we also know that while our customers may intend to donate to a worthy cause, the actual process of pick-up and delivery can be impossible to schedule during this transitional time. Rather than see items be thrown away or taken to the new home by default, we do what we do best-organize and transport-to make each move mean more.

What can be donated?

Toys, books, clothes, and small household goods

Who can participate?

UPCYCLE is currently available only in the New York metro area.

How do donations arrive at the Salvation Army?

We store donated goods until we have at least half a truck full, then transport them to the Salvation Army warehouse in the Bronx, which distributes the materials to its New York area stores.

Profits go to further Salvation Army programs and help to advance the Army's mission of helping those in need.

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.
