Tips for a smooth move

Make Packing a Priority

Packing smart is key to a successful move. Start with decluttering then sort things out by categories — optimizing the space and organizing your boxes will make the process easier. Always buy high-quality materials to ensure your items get the protection they need but don't forget to check the stuff we always pack for you: FlatRate includes a list of items as part of our standard moving package.

Consider Delays and Traffic

Although FlatRate guarantees a smooth journey, some things are out of our control. Always take into consideration traffic, delays and other unforeseen circumstances when moving in and out of a city. A good way to prepare is researching the events in your location to assure no protests, parades or street-fairs will be happening that day.

Take Care of Building Requirements

Good planning is the basis of a stress-free move. After you complete your booking with FlatRate, make sure to reserve your building's elevator in advance, request a Certificate of Insurance and check if there are any other requirements you have to take care of prior to your moving day.
