When FlatRate Moving was founded in 1991, we strived to change the way people move. In the process, we wanted to innovate the moving industry by putting our clients’ moving needs first. What sets FlatRate apart from other moving companies? Different than many moving companies in New York, we know that moving is more than just carrying your items from point A to point B — there is a methodology, a process, and a need to build a reliable relationship with the client.
Providing high-quality service and all-inclusive guaranteed pricing, FlatRate has a visionary strategy when it comes to moving people forward.
With our exclusive flat rate, there are never surprise costs or hidden fees. The essence of our service is transparency. Our formula has been trusted by more than 200,000 customers.
We strive to provide superior service in the moving industry and we are proud to have been successful at it for decades. But what else sets FlatRate apart from other moving companies?
Upfront Estimate & Free Quoting
With our FlatRate formula, we provide customers with an upfront estimate of their move based on their inventory and the distance they are traveling. This all-inclusive price is the result of years of experience and our own software that enables us to provide customers with highly accurate free quotes.
At FlatRate, the price you get at your initial consultation will be the final price you pay. As long as your inventory doesn’t change throughout the moving process, you are good to go.
Because each move is unique, FlatRate has a dedicated department that exclusively handles all logistics and planning. From pickup to set up, we will have a custom-made move plan for you. Every move is secured with schedules, delivery windows, floor plans, and deadlines reflecting your moving needs.
Have rare antiques or a piece of high-end art that needs special attention? We know the value of your items and that some things need extra care.
At our Bronx woodshop, our skilled team of carpenters is always ready to create custom wood crates and make sure your inventory is highly protected. Crating is suggested for items such as flat-screen TVs, antiques, fine art, wine collections, chandeliers, and sculptures.
Special Packing & High-Quality Materials
There’s nothing we can’t move — no furniture is too large or too delicate for our team of moving experts. On top of the items we pack standard for you, FlatRate offers a series of additional packing services to make sure your inventory is always protected whether you’re moving locally, cross-country, or internationally.
We also only work with top-tier packing materials. We begin your move by using durable moving boxes, not flimsy ones that can break at any point. When we can, we insist on the best tapes, blankets, and wraps in the moving industry.
FlatRate’s fleet of trucks is inspected daily and equipped with an air conditioner on-call for the hottest summer days — guaranteeing that your inventory is always cool and safe from humidity and other elements.
All trucks are also equipped with real-time GPS tracking so you can see the route your inventory is taking.
We also inspect all of our trucks and facilities on a regular basis and have them approved, daily. That way they are always clean and safe from infestations like bed bugs and other unwanted pests.
The FlatRate App
We innovate the way people relocate. Our online portal and mobile app make it even easier for customers to manage and track their moves. With the MyFlatRate app, customers are able to schedule their move, locate their truck, edit their inventory, sign documents, add extra services, and tip movers from wherever they are.
With storage units in multiple locations in the country and abroad, FlatRate owns and operates storage facilities that offer simple solutions for our customers.
With a variety of room sizes, short & long-term contracts, and climate-controlled units, FlatRate’s storage services are a quick and easy answer for the clients that need some extra space before or after their move.
