We know New York

Our professional movers are experts at moving New Yorkers. With over 20 years of moving experience, we can coordinate with building management, manage building and elevator access, navigate traffic patterns, and complete moves in any type of building, from luxury to prewar. It is how we became NYC’s top moving & storage company.


We make moving safe

Whether you are moving from NYC to LA, down the street, or moving expensive art or an office, we can safely move your belongings. Our moving school trains our crews to focus on safety and protection. How do we do it? Providing the best moving service starts with a move plan, the best packing materials matched to your items, and an organized team of movers. It’s the only way to ensure a safe move time and time again.


Best moving value

FlatRate was the first moving company to establish flat rate pricing. Our secret is proper planning. Detailed move plans allow our movers to customize their service specifically to your needs and to complete your move on time with no move day surprises. It has allowed us to perform thousands of seamless moves & become the best rated moving company in NYC and around the world.


Utmost care

Moving a Picasso? A piano? Porcelin? Two decades of experience transporting priceless objects has made FlatRate the top moving company for specialized moving. For custom or large items, our professional carpenters can help with disassembly or construct custom wood crating for full protection. If you're moving expensive art or designer furniture in or out of luxury buildings, our ELITE white glove moving service is the solution for you.


Always fixed-price

We have a two-decade track record of honoring an all-inclusive, guaranteed moving price. You can rest assured that there won't be any hidden costs or surprises.

“FlatRate is the absolute best! They truly made our moving experience seamless. The movers came early, asked the right questions, and let us go grab breakfast while they loaded the truck. When we came back, they were almost done! Moving where I asked. For any future moves, I’ll be using Flat Rate!”

“We had a serious problem with moving our Steinway concert grand piano into a 34th floor apt of a modern midtown building. The original piano mover claimed it could not be done. But FlatRate Elite saved the day. They built a full-size, 3d mock-up and moved it into the apartment without a hitch. They took superb care in wrapping."

“We were extremely pleased with Flat Rate. They were extremely professional, thorough, careful and nice. Not a thing was damaged and when special teams were needed (to disassemble and put back together our couch) they were on time."
