Anyone who has ever moved knows the dread surrounding the mere thought of packing up everything you own and securely getting it to your next destination. Yet moving doesn’t have to be riddled with fear or be an unpleasant experience. FlatRate Moving has been helping families move for nearly three decades with professionalism, experienced movers, and flat rate fees.
What’s more, they will be at the New York Baby Show on May 20 and 21, at Pier 94.
The nation’s largest show for expectant and new families, the New York Baby Show is a wonderful family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler. From top products to trusted parenting experts, the New York Baby Show welcomes thousands of expectant and new parents from New York City, the Tri-State area, and beyond!

We spoke with a member of the FlatRate Moving team, to learn more about the brand and what new parents can expect at the New York Baby Show.
For someone unfamiliar with FlatRate Moving, how would you describe the company’s mission and core offerings?
FlatRate Moving has a singular purpose: To take the stress and fear out of Moving Day and create the perfect moving and storage experience for customers throughout the New York area, around the country and across the globe. With flat rate, upfront pricing and nearly three decades of professional moving experience with one of the largest fleets of trucks and trained professional movers, FlatRate Moving customers are provided with clear, guaranteed prices and quality moving services they can depend on.
Tell us about the company’s background. When did it start and how has it evolved since then?
FlatRate Moving was founded as a response to endemic and pervasive problems experienced throughout the moving industry. There was an overwhelming trend to “bait & switch” the moving customer, which ruined trust and created terrible moving experiences. When FlatRate Moving arrived on the scene, it was fundamentally driven by the idea that moving shouldn’t be a terrifying experience where customers are at the mercy of the moving company. Instead, FlatRate Moving empowers customers by putting their experience front and center and evolving service offerings around the customer needs and expectations
What are the most popular and newest services from FlatRate Moving?
At our core, we are still simply delivering trustworthy, professional moving and storage. But we’ve added on a lot of options and features that today’s customer expects, from more online management to guaranteed delivery windows and even a new app that enables customers to better control their moving and storage. Our storage management has seen a lot of new features, including the ability to have a detailed, barcode-enabled inventory where you can request specific items to be pulled and delivered at your convenience.
What sets FlatRate Moving apart in the family moving industry?
We know that NYC families are the busiest in the world. Juggling schedules, trying to make it all work in an apartment, and then having to move on top of it—it can be overwhelming. Our services are geared towards families that need access to all the support options, from complete packing services to the ability to simply leave the apartment on moving day and know that everything will arrive safe and sound in the new apartment as expected. Our movers really look forward to moving families because they love knowing the important role they’re playing in that family’s future.
What can parents expect from FlatRate Moving at the New York Baby Show?
Parents can expect exclusive offers to make any upcoming moves even easier, an inside look at how we support family moves, and even a big giveaway (if you’re planning to move in the next year—you’re going to want to find us, we promise!)
