Service providers know you'll be leaving them an unfiltered review. They also know the more five-star reviews they get, the more customers will choose them.

Who are the helpers?
The service providers you see on HireAHelper do loading and unloading jobs for a living.
Many are professional labor-only moving companies that specialize in load and unload services. Others are full-service moving companies willing to send their workers out on labor-only moving jobs.
What happens if they break my stuff?
Most movers will resolve damage issues on their own, especially if you select someone with great reviews. They don't want to risk getting a bad review and losing business. But in case your service provider does not resolve your damage claim, there is complimentary mover's insurance available when you place your order through HireAHelper which covers $.60/lb up to $10k. There is also Full Value coverage available for purchase from MovingInsurance.com. Rates start at $12 per $1000 in coverage.

John and Cameron were lifesavers! They called to confirm arrival time and were prompt. That fact was even more impressive because they only had a couple hours notice and it was Palm Sunday! They stayed until the entire load was safely put away. These guys were great! They made the heavy work look easy and we're both cheerful and professional. I will definitely be calling them again!
They showed up promptly, they worked efficiently, they were friendly and pleasant, they helped arrange and rearrange furniture, and they even helped maneuver the truck into a parking spot. I couldn't ask for anything more.

Hired 2 helpers for 4 hours to unload 2 large PODS. They were on time and very courteous. They worked non-stop and finished a bit early. There were some large pieces to take upstairs which they handled with no problem. Because they were done a bit early, they tried to put a bed frame together. They did not do it right. But unloading they were great and I would recommend and use them again.

arrived on time. Introduced them selves and promptly explained the procedure. They carefully removed the furniture and placed it in the extremely clean container as directed. Our doorways were tight, but the men were extremely hard working with a pleasant attitude. Would definitely use them again. Thanks to Mr. Errol and Mr. Michael Willis.

The guys showed up 15 minutes early and were very respectful and polite. They assessed the things that needed to moved working very smartly. They were prepared with a dolly if needed and and worked very very hard getting a home gym out of the house. They were very respectful of the goods and house. I would definitely hire them again.

The guys worked extremely hard. Extra blankets were put down on the hardwood floors so they wouldn't get scratched, my antique furniture was wrapped for protection. All of the workers deserve a bonus for being on time and extremely courteous. I was very impressed with their professionalism.
Thanks for the great review Rebecca! Thanks again for choosing A3J Moving Services!
