Our latest Reviews
"FlatRate was extremely efficient in our move from suburbs to city. They were on top of everything and definitely reduced our stress with moving. They also packed for us. Would highly recommend FlatRate.”
“FlatRate is the absolute best! They truly made our moving experience seamless. The movers came early, asked the right questions, and let us go grab break-fast while they loaded the truck. When we came back, they were almost done! Moving where I asked. For any future moves, I’ll be using Flat Rate!”
“We had a serious problem with moving our Steinway concert grand piano into a 34th floor apt of a modern midtown building. The original piano mover claimed it could not be done. But FlatRate Elite saved the day. They built a full-size, 3d mock-up and moved it into the apartment without a hitch. They took superb care in wrapping."
“We were extremely pleased with Flat Rate. 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."
