I cannot stress using FlatRate Moving enough.
I genuinely cannot write a more outstanding review for FlatRate Moving. I’ve dealt with movers before and typically you’ll find an average experience at best. However, this was not the case with FlatRate. The attention to detail and care that went into my 2-bed apartment was unmatched. I felt like my possessions were in safe hands the entire trip from NJ to ... Continue Reading →

Incredibly polite, professional and friendly.

The Flat Rate crew was incredibly polite, professional and friendly. They dealt with our insanely heavy antique furniture without a single complaint and even made it look relatively easy, although I know it wasn’t. Thank you for supporting what can be a very stressful process, in a positive way.

I would highly recommend their service!
The company was great to deal with. They wanted to ensure my business and went above and beyond to do so. The initial call with Laurence went well to get a clear sense of the items which would be moved. Then, the movers – Sean and his team – arrived early, and finished well before their estimated time. Additionally, they took care to wrap and secure all item... Continue Reading →

Lower stress move
As most people know, moving is one of life’s most stressful experiences. I’ve moved multiple times between NY and NJ over the past 15 years and always used FlatRate. On the most recent move, at the end of July, I had a house full of furniture and boxes to go to storage, until my next home is ready. Throughout the process they kept a calm demeanor and just kept going, go...
