What other people say about us

Good to be true!

I'm surprised by the negative reviews noted in 2015 because my experience was so wonderful. I understand how the sales and admin sides can be subpar, I'm used to this in NYC; poor communication, etc. But in the case of FlatRate, the actual muscle, smarts, and good will of the team eclipsed any bumps in the road along the way. We had sensitive materials over a 100 years old and they never made me feel as if I was being too sensitive or overly concerned. In fact, their bedside manner was superlative. Aiby and his team made what is typically a draining and stressful experience to be full of humor and professionalism. I think the sales team likely undercut the true value of this job to close the deal at a significant disservice to the team who did the actual move -- two moves -- home + storage facility from NYC to NJ. From 9am to 10pm at night until everything was in the correctly labeled room. High-fives all around. Be tolerant with the office -- and the movers will knock it out for you. We did across the country with Flatrate, too. Not a hitch.

All facets of the move with FlatRate were exceptional. From working with Ming in the office getting the inventory list correct and helping clarify any aspect that I was unclear about it was a truly outstanding experience. The day of the move 11/13/15 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.

Best movers!

From the very beginning, Stephen was patient with me to create my moving list and estimate. I even changed my inventory a few times, which was never a problem. Despite any changes, his quotes were always better than any other competitors. Then came moving day, which was even a better experience. My movers actually came early. My movers ELVIS and GABRIEL were amazing, who from the very beginning were personable, diligent, and amazingly fast. Nothing was broken and everything arrived at my new designation. Even at the end of the day, my mother shared how impressed she was. (This compliment is equivalent to seeing a unicorn.) This is my fourth move in NYC and the best. I will never use another mover.

Your Cross Country move to Detroit

Known as the Motor city or Motown, Detroit city is the world center of the automotive industry. Despite all the bad things that have happened in recent history, this city continues to live and develop in new ways. The worldwide famous automotive center is revitalizing, led by the car industry giants Ford and GM. Detroit is attractive to biotechnology and communications companies as well. Its neighborhoods are coming to life and the spirit of togetherness grows among people.
There are numerous benefits of moving cross country and relocating to Detroit. Before discussing those, it might be useful to learn more about the important events that have led to the creation of the city as it is today.

History of Detroit

Since its establishment, the city has always attracted various nations and quickly grew and expanded its borders. Even now, it is the 21st most populous city in the United States, with estimated population of 677,116. During the 20th century, Detroit's auto boom and factory jobs brought thousands of African-Americans from the South, as a part of the Great Migration. America’s middle class was born in Detroit. Steady work and union wages meant an autoworker could own a home, plus a boat, maybe even a cottage.
In 1960s, racial tensions led to riots, because the majority of Detroit’s white citizens resisted integration. This triggered an exodus of white residents, jobs and companies. By the year 1980, the majority of the population was African-American. This trend continued over a course of years, making Detroit the only city in US with a predominantly (82.7 %) African-American population. If you want to learn more about Detroit’s demographics, click here.
Things got much worse after companies moved manufacturing overseas, when a large number of people lost their jobs. The Great Recession in 2008 pushed Detroit over the edge and thousands of homes went into foreclosure. The culmination of bad things came with Detroit bankruptcy in 2013.
Everything bad has already happened. Detroit hit bottom and can only go up. If you want to witness the rising of the city, call Cross Country Moving Company to help you start a better life here.

Detroit Today

Today, Detroit has the people and their driving energy! There is an incredible entrepreneurial spirit and a revolution is taking place. Many are moving back in order to restore their home town. Major revitalization is underway. it is a hot spot of innovation and creativity, and investment dollars are pouring in. The city is attractive to investors, would-be fixers and, especially, young adventurers. Here, you will quickly become the owner of a house or an apartment, because property prices are lower than in most cities. There were cases of homes being sold for as little as $100 on eBay in the past, but now prices are higher. You will need large moving boxes to pack all your things before moving into a new house.
There is an increasing number of immigrants who are starting to build their lives right here. Working-class families from Bangladesh, Iraq, Mexico and Yemen have moved into Detroit's blighted neighborhoods, starting their own businesses and integrating with other cultures. Residents have the opportunity to meet different people and enrich their life with new friendships. If your only exposure to people of other races, classes or cultures comes through TV or movies, it’s incredibly easy to believe every negative image you see. In Detroit, this will not be possible. The unification of the people is the only recipe for making changes. No matter what you decide to do, there will always be someone to back you up. The only goal is to make the city a better place for residents.

Detroit Culture

While Detroit’s economy is making a comeback, it’s apparent that its culture never left. The home of R&B, soul, and techno is still a trendsetter in music. It hosts a number of popular music festivals each year, including the Movement, the Detroit International Jazz Festival, and the Motor City Music Conference. There is also a large number of well-recognized music venues, including the DTE Energy Music Theatre and the Fox Theatre. Diana Ross, Martha Reeves, The Temptations, Aretha Franklin, Iggy Pop, Stevie Wonder, Madonna, MC5, Ted Nugent, Alice Cooper, Glenn Frey, Eminem, Kid Rock, The White Stripes are some of the names that Detroit gave to the world.

Detroit’s numerous great museums have survived the hardest days. Some of the best Detroit museums are:
- The Detroit Historical Museum offers insight to the history of the city, as well as the state of Michigan.
- The Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History is considered one of the largest African American history museums of the world.
- The Michigen Science Center features an IMAX theatre, a planetarium, as well as numerous laboratories and exhibits.
- The Arab American National Museum is the first (and so far only) museum of Arab American culture in the United States.
- The Yankee Air Museum is the perfect place to learn all about aircraft industry.

The casinos bring in tourism and provide jobs, helping bolster the local economy. Even Caesar’s Palace has opened up a spot near downtown Detroit. It is the largest city with casino resorts in the US. If you aren't attracted to casinos, young people will surely be attracted by the proximity of the Canadian border and the possibility to drink or smoke Cubans cigars without suffering the consequences.

The City of Champions is another nickname for Detroit. It is home to professional teams representing the four major sports in North America:
- Hockey - The Red Wings won 11 Stanley Cups,
- Basketball – Detroit Pistons won three NBA titles,
- Baseball - Detroit Tigers won four World Series titles,
- and Football - Detroit Lions won 4 NFL titles. 

They all call state-of-the-art stadiums their homes. Have you heard of any other city whose teams achieved such great success? Of course you haven’t. That’s why Detroit is one of the best sports towns in the US.

With its proximity to Canada and its facilities, ports, major highways, rail connections and international airports, Detroit is an important transportation hub. The city has three international border crossings, linking it to Windsor, Ontario. One of them is the single busiest border crossing in North America, carrying 27% of the total trade between the U.S. and Canada. 

Getting Around Detroit

The city itself has an interesting form of transportation called the Detroit People Mover. A large, futuristic version of a train services thirteen stops while running along a three-mile track. It can transport you to your desired destination in no time. To view the map of the People Mover transportation system, click here.
