Q What are the best days of the week to move?

Wednesdays are the best day since less people request it, followed by Tuesdays and Thursdays. Fridays and weekends are usually the busiest days resulting in competition for elevator access, which can cause delays. In NYC, buildings also commonly have weekend restrictions so it’s best to inquire with yours before booking a date.

FlatRate recommends at least three weeks in advance when moving locally. For long distance or international, we recommend four weeks.

Yes, we are experts when it comes to moving pianos with a trained team fully taking care of the service.
