Why make your next move with FlatRate?

Because, with FlatRate, you get:

  1. An all-inclusive price that doesn’t change
    As long as your inventory stays the same, so does our price—after all, we’re the company that introduced flat rate moving to New York City over 20 years ago.
  2. Our detailed Move Plan
    Knowing every detail of your move is what allows us to give an accurate, all-inclusive, guaranteed price. Our relocation specialists organize all the details in a handy format known as the Move Plan—a document that you'll refer to over and over.
  3. Outstanding, ongoing customer service
    We don’t think of moves as a one-time transaction. For us, each represents an ongoing relationship. In fact, for the 2,000 plus moves we do each month, the majority are clients we have worked with before, or are personal referrals.
  4. Service suited to your needs
    With varying levels of service, we will certainly have an option to fit your needs and budget. If you have additional or specialized needs, we also offer à la carte options that can meet any requirement.
  5. Reliable, well-tested infrastructure
    We're the biggest moving company in the biggest city because we’ve learned how to make moving less stressful. That's why satisfied clients recommend us to their own friends and family. Our established infrastructure includes an efficient planning and dispatch office, a huge fleet of trucks, and a staff of professional movers who've completed extensive, job-specific training.

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.
