“Flat Rate was extremely efficient in our move from the suburbs to the City. They were on top of everything and definitely reduced our stress with the process of moving. They also packed for us and everything arrived in perfect condition. Movers were polite, moved efficiently and quickly. Would highly recommend Flat Rate.”

“The day of the move . . . the two guys were polite, friendly and very professional I felt they went above and beyond with care of my items. Packing up was fast and efficient and I met them at the new location where they brought everything in and unpacked very quickly and carefully.
This was a move in Manhattan that from pack down to final set up took only about 2.5 hours total which I was expecting to take a lot longer.
Thank you very much FlatRate moving, I’m in my new apartment and would recommend this company with the highest regards.”

“We had a serious problem with moving a 9ft, 1,000 lbs Steinway concert grand piano into a 34th floor apt of a modern midtown building. The original piano mover, a well-known one recommended by Steinway & Sons, claimed it could not be done because they were convinced the hallway leading to the apartment was too narrow. This meant we would have to give up the apartment!
Enter Flat Rate Elite, the high-end unit of Flat Rate. They agreed it would be a tight squeeze, but Flat Rate Elite went the extra mile, built a full-size, 3d mock-up of the concert grand, and moved it through the building, the elevator, the hallway, and into the apartment without a hitch. So Flat Rate Elite got the job and saved the day. They took superb care in wrapping the piano, brought extra personnel to assist, and executed this challenging move to perfection.”

“We were extremely pleased with Flat Rate. We hope that we don’t ever have to move again, but they were extremely professional, thorough, careful and nice. Not a thing was damaged and when special teams were needed (to disassemble and put back together our couch) they were on time. So absolutely no reservations at all and we would use them again.”
