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.

This was the second time we've moved with Dependable Movers and they were excellent again. Showed up on time, worked hard to get everything moved in less time that we had planned. The guys were great!

I was extremely pleased with our moving helpers. They worked extremely hard and fast to get our uhaul unloaded quickly and safely. We are moving again 6 months, so we will use them for packing, loading, and unloading. Thank you so much. Amy

They were prepared for the job and worked hard. They were respectful of my property and goods. Rudi said at the end, all you need to do is sign and a tip. Didn't like being asked for a tip. I was going to give them one anyway...
What I told you was, all you need to do is to sign here and that is it, You asked me WHAT? I replied to you again: that is all. I never asked for a tip. You know your comment make us look very bad to future possible costumers. Thank you

Kenny and Derrick were worth every penny for the service they provided. They came early (after calling and asking my permission) then they were non stop. They never complained and they asked my opinion or thought before moving any piece of furniture or stacking any furniture. They were great!!!
8/22/2015reviewing: Harley's Logistics
The help was on time, eager to facilitate the unloading in any way possible, worked as hard as I've seen any hired help work, and were careful with our belongings. If the need arose I'd use them again.
7/16/2015reviewing: A-1 Movers
They were amazing! My husband and father in law were going to move us which would have been a disaster. They packed everything like a puzzle using every inch of space in the PODS we rented. They would ask questions making sure they took extra care of certain items. I will call them again when we move to our new house!!!!!!!
thank you for the kind words , we work very hard to be the best , look forward to moving you again , god bless

The two man team showed up right on time. They came in and looked at where everything needed to go and got started right away. They were prepared and worked hard and steady. They took good care of everything and were done quickly. I would definitely use again and I recommend using them.
- They came promptly on time. Actually slightly early. - Well prepared and ready to start at the get-go. - Moved a "ton" of boxes to the 2nd floor. - Great guys to work with. Polite and respectful. - Would not call anyone else for the next job. Got to use these guys!

Crothers Brothers did a GREAT JOB!! Not only were they on time, they showed up a few minutes early. They did call first just to make sure that was OK! They were very prepared for the job and got right to work. They worked very hard and were very respectful of my belongings. Both guys were very nice and friendly and I would absolutely use them again!!
Ashleigh, we spend hours upon hours at the office making sure each and every day is planned out in a way that insures our employees arrive at their destination on time. We believe that a competitive team spirit leads to greater productivity(quicker more efficient moves) and happier employees(being nice and friendly). We also preach safety and caution when handling all items because we want to handle each piece as if it were our own. Thank you and have a wonderful day.

They were very respectful and polite. They worked hard! The only bad thing is that they were not on time but called because they were getting some rope. At about the 2 hour mark , he wanted to add some time. When I reminded them that they started at 9 and not 8,that was all that was said about it and we were done at 3 hours. Money well spent.

Mike was very accommodating as he even rescheduled to later in the day, so everything could be moved into the garage and condo around the remodeling that was happening. Plus, he also glued two pieces of furniture that had been damaged with the packing of the moving storage unit. Thanks Mike! I will use them again.
Bobby and Leroy from Holland Real Estate Services did a great job! They arrived on time, were courteous and professional, and treated our belongings and new home with care. We would certainly use them again for again for a similar move (...although we hope to never move again, as the rest of our moving experience has been a complete nightmare!)

This was my second time using witmer's moving and again they were excellent. The Adobe spot on time or early. Move things quickly and carefully. I never saw the 2 guys take a break one time they just felt moving. Followed me to my new home and unloaded I record time. Offered to move anything around that I needed help with. If/when I move again I will for sure use these guys agin.
Thank you sir for the comments. It was a pleasure to help you out

Looked at the other reviews before booking and they were great as expected! A little concerned by the amount of larger items I had to move, but they made it work.
We're happy to see you recognize that we try to live by our reviews and strive hard to make even the impossible possible as far as moving maneuverability goes. Glad we could get everything in your apt and we hope you enjoy the area, take care!

I can't recommend this company enough. Shortly after booking, I received a call from the owner who gave me tips on which supplies to purchase and from where. We also discussed the details of the move and my expectations. On moving day, the crew arrived right on time. They hustled the whole time they were there and treated everything with the utmost of care. Highly highly recommend.

Did a great job. Worked hard and fast, finished early and way faster than I even expected. Loaded things into the truck in a good arrangement. Careful with items and followed instructions well. Also came on really short notice. Would definitely recommend.
