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.

Yes, they arrived on time. They were more than prepared for the job. This job was not your normal move, some very heavy and fragile objects all moved perfectly. Their care with my property and goods was first class. Will use them in the future without a second thought, and will refer them to friends. AAA+++
We are striving to have all of our customer feel this way. At Speed Loaders, we are continuously tweeking our service. We are not perfect. Then again, who is. We use proven moving labor methods to load a truck/container. We want you to come back. Thanks

Andrew and Brad were great. They were on time, and they worked really hard to get us moved, in 90 degree heat! They packed everything securely and were careful to ensure nothing was damaged during the move. I would use them again if the need arose.

Great team that helped us unpack our POD and get mom set moved into her villa. I'd definately recommend tri-county along with POD as a great and dependable alternative to national movers.

This crew picked up where an pretty ious crew left off due to running out of time the day before. They also had the hardest things to fit in very limited space but they did it. We could not have completed the packing of the trailer without them.
7/13/2015reviewing: D. Law Moving Operations
This was a wonderful experience, the boxes and small furniture was very well packed. I will say that some of the larger items appeared to be tossed in at the last minute and required some repacking the first night of out of town. It was wonderful and I would most definitely use them again. My only recommendation is to make sure that the furniture pads are used on items at the back of the truck.

My moving help woke up sick on the morning of my move so I was in need of last minute help. This two-person team was efficient and was hard at work for 4.5 straight hours to get the job done. I would definitely recommend them!

6/14/2015reviewing: Braun Moving
They were on time They were kind of prepared. It was a packing job only which is a little different experience. They did work hard. But they were kind of slow. They could be more attentive. Several boxes that they made, the tape was coming out once the boxes were filled with stuff. In some boxes too much of tape was used. But overall it was ok.
