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.

7/3/2015reviewing: Strong Arm Movers
Overall a great experience. They were well-organized, friendly and efficient. They did a good job helping me assemble my furniture. They were about 15 minutes late, but kept me updated about their status. They were mainly respectful of our property and goods, although they did drop one item of furniture that caused some dents in the wall. I would use them again.
7/25/2015reviewing: Acme Moving Labor
They arrived on time and were well prepared. They were personable and professional and made sure to handle my items with the utmost care. I would definitely use them again.
5/31/2015reviewing: O'Shae & Sons Movers
Our movers were great. They arrived on time and went right to work. They were very careful with the things they were moving as well as the apartment that the things were being moved into. They finished in an hour and then helped put things together. I would certainly use them again.

The guys were courtesy and did a wonderful job. I didn't have any water to offer them, but instead they offer me a bottle of water. Thumb up for a job done! Ms. Johnson
These guys were fabulous. They were on time, very hard working, speedy and really nice. I used them last week to pack my town house into a 26 foot truck. I paid for four movers and they had the whole truck expertly packed in 2 hours. I moved to Chicago but if were ever to move back to Philly I would definitely use them again. Thanks so much for making the first part of my move stress free!
6/4/2015reviewing: Masters Moving
Exceptional work ethics! I've never seen anyone pack a 26 ft truck like they did. Everything fit, nothing broken, and the piano made it to our destination with no problems. Polite, professional, and exactly on time. Our window was 9-10am. They were there at 9. I would hire them over and over and over, and recommend them with no reservations. Really nice guys.
5/29/2015reviewing: J & L movers
These guys were great! I rescheduled several times when my closing date moved and they worked with me every time. They showed up early, worked late and had my whole house unpacked in no time!
8/1/2015reviewing: Harris Moving Company
These guys were the best! They were on time and extremely efficient. It is amazing how well they can pack in two containers. They took care in wrapping items up so they would not get scratched or broken and had a "can-do" attitude the entire day. I would certainly use again.
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.
7/20/2015reviewing: Nick's Labor Service
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.

This moving company is awesome. Evan is very nice and organized. His workers (Noah and Armani) were absolutely wonderful, respectful, and extremely knowledgeable about packing carefully and logically. Truly surprised me because not everyone can load a whole house into a small 16ft box. Kuddos gentlemen!??Would highly recommend!
7/30/2015reviewing: Heavy Foot Movers
Punctual, very friendly, professional, and efficient. They take care of the furniture as if its their own. I am very happy of their work. I will highly recommend them to anyone who needs them.
7/15/2015reviewing: A.R.M.S. Moving
Very glad this service of labor only is available to help folks who are driving their own truck. Workers were energetic, happy and witty, which cheered us up after days of dreary packing. We would definitely use them again if/when needed. Very convenient to be able to book two hour window for reasonable price.

Great job, very respectful group. Respected our items, and they made sure to be very careful. Only hiccup was they were late, but other than that we would use them again.
7/25/2015reviewing: Lewis Moving Company
George and Norman worked hard, respected the need to follow instructions from multiple people :} and were careful with my parents' treasures. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

8/16/2015reviewing: Quick Movers
The best movers I've ever worked with, and I have moved 12 times over the last 24 years, both across the US and around the world. Efficient, capable, FAST, and unfailingly courteous. And all at a very reasonable price. I give them the highest recommendation.
7/19/2015reviewing: All Around Movers
They were early. And worked hard. When I didn't have enough moving blankets they even knew where to send me for the best deal. They wanted to ensure all of my furniture was wrapped and protected.
