The Family Move: Making Moving with Kids Easier
Moving by yourself into a NYC apartment with your roomies is one thing, but moving with kids? That’s a whole other story. Picture this: it’s moving day and you have to go scoop your kids from school early. As you’re coordinating with the truck driver to see when it’s going to arrive, your kiddos are ready for lunch. But with hundreds of boxes stacked on the floor, it’s almost impossible to reach the kitchen cabinets. Just as you pack up the last few boxes, another one gets knocked over (kids will be kids!), and it seems like this move will never get done.
Take a breath, relax– FlatRate moving professional moving services here to help. As the top NYC moving company, FlatRate offers exclusive services for a safe and efficient family move. Managing a whole move on your own is stressful enough, and then add kids to the mix and suddenly things get a lot more complicated. Focus on your family and let FlatRate take care of the rest. Here are a few things that you can do to make your moving day as special as it can for every member of the family.
First and foremost, keep your kids involved. All NYC parents know that our little ones love to feel capable and independent– it’s the city in them! If your kids can’t stay with friends, family, or neighbors during the move, give them little tasks to keep them busy and make them feel helpful. This could mean carrying small boxes, decorating boxes, or choosing their favorite toys that they want to hold onto.
The best part about using professional movers is that you can spend more time with your kids and not have to worry. FlatRate uses top-tier materials and specialized skills from their talented team to make sure all of your belongings are handled with the upmost care. That being said, it doesn’t hurt to create a safe room for your kids– one room in your house that has no boxes so that they can still freely play. And if they start getting antsy on moving day, they’ll have a room to spend time in.
At the end of the day, professional movers can make the technical aspects of the move much easier for your family, but the emotional aspect is up to you. Kids may feel a lot of different ways about a move– if you’re moving somewhere far, maybe they’re sad to leave their friends at school. Maybe they grew up in that home and it’s difficult to say goodbye. Or maybe they’re too young to really understand what’s going on, but the change feels scary and places them in an unfamiliar place.
Not only will you have more time for your own well-being when you hire FlatRate professional movers, but you’ll also be able to have more conversations with your kids leading up to the move. Whether that means explaining to them what the move means or taking them to their new neighborhood to familiarize them with what to expect, you’ll want to give your kids the emotional support they need.

Why You Should Hire Professional Movers
Moving somewhere new is exciting, but it can also be very stressful. Between packing, coordinating storage, scheduling, and more, the move takes a real toll. Luckily, professional movers can make the process a whole lot easier.
So how exactly can professional movers help out? Saving time is certainly one way. For on-the-go NYC families, it can be particularly difficult to take time out of your busy schedule to plan and execute an entire move by yourself. With over 30 years of experience as professional NYC movers, FlatRate has the resources to get your move done with speed and care. You won’t have to worry about taking off of work or keeping your kiddos home
from school with these professionally trained movers at hand. With professional movers there is much less risk of accidents. You may think you can safely carry a dresser down five flights of stairs, but it’s a lot harder than it looks. With weekly classes on how to pack, FlatRate ensures all movers are more than ready to take on that dresser (and much more!). Keep yourself and your kids safe by letting professional movers carefully pack, wrap, and transport your belongings.
You may be thinking: this sounds great, but professional movers are too expensive. That’s where FlatRate comes in! FlatRate is the US’s first and only moving company with all-inclusive move at a guaranteed flat rate. Unlike moving companies that charge by the hour, FlateRate is upfront about all costs by taking into account how far you’re moving, the amount of belongings and the complexity of the move.
While DIY moves are marketed as more cost-effective, the dollars often add up to a lot more than you think. There are so many hidden costs that you might not expect, including boxes, moving trucks or vans, possible damage to belongings, the time you took off for work, etc. You might find some of these hidden costs at moving companies that charge per hour because you don’t know how long the move will take until it’s done, but FlatRate allows you to budget ahead of time for a cost-effective, safe, and quick move.
Above all, your move should be exciting. Whether you’re moving into the city, from one NYC highrise to another, or away from the beloved big apple, you and your family should be able to enjoy every minute of it. Make your move a happy day, stress-free and full of hope for fun adventures ahead in a brand new place, with FlatRate.
