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.

The first crew didn't show but had back up with in hour of original schedule. They had dolly, no packing materials requested. Worked hard and treated our stuff well. Packed 16 foot pod in 1.5 hours. We would recommend them.
They were ready to start unloading my pod when they arrived and worked very hard getting all furniture to the second floor. They were very cautious of walls, floors etc while moving items. Although I do not plan on EVER moving again, I was very pleased with their help and knowledge and would definitely recommend them for your moving needs. Thank you.

These guys were great! They arrived on time, worked quickly and carefully and were pleasant and polite throughout the entire time. They packed a container much more efficiently than we could have and kept making more space available. I will definitely be calling them again and look forward to having them help with the next phase of our move.
Once they showed up, they did a good job. One of the movers showed up just before 10 Am but the other one was a no show and ended up having to wait for the second one. They showed up around 11 AM. They did a really good job on getting everything moved that we needed. Thank you
Thank you Rosalie for the work.

The two movers who came to load our pod were on time, curtious, respectful and very skilled. They did an excellent job of packing our furniture and possessions so that they weren't broken and utilized the space we had available. I will definitely hire them again!
Although they were a little late, difficulty in finding our home, they made up for it in service. Great job and made up for the delay in doing extra work for us. Would recommend them.

They were very professional. Came on time. Moved the stuff very quickly without damaging anything. Booked 4 workers for 2 hours. They were out in 1.5 hours including a piano up 3 flights of stairs.
Thanks for the awesome review as you can tell we do not screw around to run the clock etc. We moved his apartment including piano down 1 flight and new place up 2 flights in less then 2 hrs. It helps he was 100% prepared and there was no drive time between but awesome customer that we would move anytime anywhere Thanks again
