Simple, Up-Front Pricing
With all the extra fees, cargo weight, mileage, etc. straight price comparisons for full service movers are nearly impossible. On HireAHelper it's simpler and easier to compare.
Real Customer Reviews
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.
Stellar Customer Support
On your moving day, we're here manning the phones. That means if anything goes wrong, we spring into action and even help you find a different company if needed.
Quality Service Providers
Average helper rating is 4.7 out of 5.
Service is Guaranteed
Besides complimentary insurance, if the job doesn't go right we'll reimburse you up to the amount you paid through HireAHelper, up to $1k, as per our Service Guarantee.
Transparency & Integrity
Business credentials (licenses, insurance policies, etc) are clearly listed. Besides customer reviews, it's another way to know who you're hiring.
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.
Who is HireAHelper?
We are a real brick-and-mortar company based in Oceanside CA. To make sure your move goes smoothly, you can reach a real person here 7 days a week.

Derek and his co worker were amazing. Having moved 6 times in 8 years they are in a league of their own. They put other movers to shame. Never had such an organized move ...they arrived on time, so polite , unbelievable work I would say , Hire them for sure.

I needed help on short notice yet they were able to accommodate the need. Crew was delayed about 1 hour from previous job but communicated well. They were innovative completing a job which seemed impossible
Thanks so much Dan, we're glad our services fit your needs! - Strong Arm Moving

They were perfect on time and yes they were prepared for the job. They did work very hard and prompt. I found them very cooperative, respectful to the property and goods however I found my child gate missing (except for that all other were intact). Yes I would use them next time.
8/7/2015reviewing: Done Right Movers
I highly recommend Done Right Movers. We used them to move some furniture from the garage into our house. They wrapped the leather furniture so it wouldn't get damaged. They took care to make sure that the walls and doors didn't get marked up. We will definitely use them again.

Great job. Nick and Antonio helped to unload my 8x16 POD into my second story 2 bedroom apartment. Everything was safe and sound without a scratch to the materials or the apartment. Couldnt have asked for a better service. Very willing to work with me on a timeframe as well. Thanks a lot.

8/3/2015reviewing: Full House Family Moving
The two men that arrived were a last minute substitute group because the others got held up. They were very communicative and worked very hard. The two men couldn't have been nicer and I would use them again.
8/24/2015reviewing: Moving that Worx
Our experience with Moving that Worx (Thomas and Charlie) was fantastic. They were prompt, professional, came ready to work, and had such great attitudes the ENTIRE time! We would recommend them to anybody!
6/23/2015reviewing: Ogre Man Movers, LLC
They were very professional. Even though I was ill-prepared for my move (new to LA area), Ogre Man Movers put me at ease and accommodated me until the move was finished to my satisfaction. I would definitely use them again.
8/15/2015reviewing: AFFORDABLE MOVE MOVERS
The two young men were on time, courteous, worked very hard, and got everything done I wanted. They were very respectful of me, my belongings and took special care not to damage my belongings or my home. No complaints and I will recommend your services. Thank you Janet Fraser
8/6/2015reviewing: Lucky Movers
Hardest working crew. Arrived on time & stayed both days until job was completed. Wonderfully careful with my packing. Optimized space in the POD. Will most definitely recommend Lucky Movers through Hire a Helper.

6/29/2015reviewing: Double J Moving
We were abandoned with a full truck by the U-Haul crew. I called hireahelper.com and just one hour later Double J came with a crew of three and unloaded our truck. They were careful, friendly, and put everything in the room where I needed it. They get our thanks and highest recommendation.
Thanks for the awesome review ma'am. We were more than happy to help your son out. I hope that he enjoys San Diego, and his apartment.

6/4/2015reviewing: A to Z valley wide movers
Tony and Steve were expert at fitting all my stuff into a relatively small storage space. And they did it in record time. They were fast, efficient, and friendly. I'd hire them again in a second.
6/13/2015reviewing: Vicky Lu's Moving & Hauling LLc
The young, strong men arrived at my home, and they were ready to work. They worked very hard, and fast, being careful with every piece of furniture they moved. They were very polite. I would recommend them to anyone who has a local or long distance move. They were great, and I know that I would diffently use them again if I had to move again (which I hope I don't have to move again (LOL)).
7/6/2015reviewing: Triangle's #1 Moving Labor
I would definitely use Joshua and Mark again to move our belongings, or for any one else that needs two great workers to move their items. They came prepared to work and did not stop until the job was done. They are two very hard workers who were very respectful of our items and I would highly recommend them.
