Our latest Reviews

"Our packers and movers at FlatRate – David, Omar, Rosa, Franklyn and Mohamad – were AMAZING. I told David Lloyd, our move rep, how great they were, too. We love FlatRate. We love their vibe. We love their fee structure. We love their service." - Louis V.

"This is the 2nd time I've used FlatRate to move, the first was from Florida, this was a local move in New York City. They were on time, worked quickly, asked me questions when needed, and respected my belongings. In the old apartment and my new apartment they protected the walls and the floor and all were very kind throughout the process. And the price I was quoted is what I paid, no hidden fees. I will continue to use FlatRate for all of my moving needs and suggest you do too!" - Tammy W.

"FlatRate was professional from start to finish. Super helpful on the phone (especially since I had to change my move date b/c the building I moved into didn't allow deliveries on Good Friday). The movers were efficient, professional, and very nice people. 100% recommend. It's worth it to pay a flat fee and not have to worry about going overtime." - Laura Jo S.

"Moving from London to San Francisco was looking to be a nightmare, then we met Anastasia at FlatRate, She is amazing, and was so helpful. We are thrilled with the great customer service and value for money we have gotten from FlatRate. The whole experience has been pain free!! Thank you FlatRate!" - David F.
