Our Story

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. We established the all-included flat rate pricing model in NYC and shifted the way people relocated locally and worldwide. With 160+ agents stationed internationally and nine branches in London and major cities in the U.S., FlatRate is now a leading name in the business with a 5% moving claim rate — beating the industry's average for 20 years.

Our vision

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, pricing scams or hidden fees — transparency is the essence of our service and our FlatRate formula has been trusted by more than 200,000 customers.
