FlatRate Moving® Upcycle Program
Our Upcycle Program, in partnership with the Salvation Army Greater New York Division, helps our customers easily donate gently used or new items that they no longer want. We provide two upcycle boxes for each move - the boxes may be filled with toys, books, clothing and other small home goods. The upcycle boxes are transported to the Salvation Army free of charge and then distributed throughout the New York area Thrift Stores.
Why this program? Because we know that many people find there are a lot of items they no longer want when they move. While many people would prefer to donate them items to someone who wants or needs them, the actual process of doing so can be cumbersome. As a result, many of these items are thrown out or simply moved into the new home - unwanted but kept by default because other options were too difficult. By alleviating the issue of finding an organization and transporting the items, we're helping to facilitate a culture of upcycling items from those who don't want them to those who may desperately need them. We're making moves mean more.
