FlatRate Moving is getting into the retail game.
The Manhattan-based, self-storage and moving company will open its first retail outpost, dubbed “The Box Store,” at 936 Broadway on Thursday.
The 5,000-square-foot Flatiron District store will sell packing materials and also serve as a hub for shipping services, according to the company. This includes a pickup for Amazon packages, a shipping service for bicycles, and mailboxes.
FlatRate also launched a service where people can drop off or pick up items from its storage facilities around the country, and even created a conference room for up to 10 people to rent.
“This new retail store is all about creating a successful moving experience,” Sharone Ben-Harosh, founder of FlatRate, said in a statement. “Planning and packing are important for a successful move and people’s possessions need special care that we can provide.”
The store also plans to host workshops for people to learn the best way to pack for a move.

If you’re prepping for a move, you may wonder if you should go the flat-rate route or pay hourly for movers.
Really, this is a choose-your-own adventure type of situation.
Are you moving a long distance? Or do you just need help moving some big items, like a piano or a cumbersome piece of furniture? If you answered yes to either of the above questions, your best bet is probably a flat-rate move, says Pat Byrne, Operations Manager at Moving Ahead Moving & Storage in Long Island, New York.
Is your move a local one, and fairly easy? If your nodding “yes, I hope so,” hiring movers on an hourly basis may be a good bet, Byrne says.
