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

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.

The experience was professional and wonderful from the owner to the workers. They were there on time and prepared for the job. The two workers worked hard and they were very respectful of my things. I was made to feel secure with their services and I am very grateful for that. I would highly recommend their services.

We hired four guys for four hours of work. These guys were AWESOME! Done in 1.5 hours and refunded me the extra money I'd prepaid (without me even asking). I highly recommend this company and will be hiring them again in one month when we need to move again.

The two helpers from Witmer's were on time and courteous. They were able to handle all that I needed help with, and they worked diligently. I felt they were respectful of my things, and I'd definitely hire them again.
Thank you sir

Hire a helper has excellent customer service. While there were issues with my workers arriving on time, the company has responded well at every turn to accommodate my needs. When the workers did arrive they work weed hard and were friendly. I would recommend this service because of how well their customer service has been to me.

It was very pleased with Def Metroplex Movers. They were on time and ready to work. They worked steadily and finished much faster than I had anticipated. They took very good care of my belongings. I will be using them again in my next move! Great job!

Ken x 2 were great. Called ahead. Arrived on time. Were prepared and knowledgeable about furniture disassembly and the whole pod packing process. Treated my furniture with care. I'm asking for them to pack my second pod.

Kedric and his team were excellent. They took great care with all my furnishings AND walls and doorways too. I would highly recommend Acme and wouldn't hestitate to hire them again
Pat and Anthony of Moving Zoom were excellent to work with! They showed up on time, prepared, they communicated well, worked very hard and my furniture was secure for the entire 8 hour trip...not a casualty anywhere! I will use them again, and I highly recommend them for their professionalism and expertise! Very careful with all my antiques! Thanks, Moving Zoom!

The guys were friendly and got stuff moved efficiently. They showed up a bit late due to an earlier job that took longer than expected, but made up for it by giving us a discount.
8/24/2015reviewing: Helps U Move

Thank you Matt for the work !

By far the BEST movers we've ever had. They were on time, careful, and QUICK. They accomplished more in 2 hours than I thought possible. They had the tools to take apart and wrap items. I would definitely use them again. Thank you!
7/31/2015reviewing: M.H.M.E. Moving Solutions
The men worked hard and got items moved in time for the pack rat container pick up. They were a little late but were in contact with us so we knew what and why and when they would be arriving. We would recommend this crew.
9/8/2015reviewing: Soliman Movers and More
Workers were polite, efficient, and appeared to know what they were doing. Time will tell when we actually move into our house in December and we will see what kind of job they did. I hope I can do another review at that time.
8/7/2015reviewing: Pack and Go Moving
They were prompt, prepared, hard-working, helpful, respectful and moved my belongings quickly and efficiently! I would use them again if I needed any moving help.

Greg, Matt and Mike were AMAZING! They worked hard, smart and fast. They cared quite a bit about my furniture and took measurements to make sure each piece would fit through the doorway. Great group of guys!!
glad to be of service thank you

9/22/2015reviewing: Moonlight Movers
Wow. They did a great job packing all my stuff into two storage containers. I had to make some choices on stuff to ditch, but they were smart enough to leave some of the cheapest, flimsiest stuff for last. Would definitely hire them again!
Just so long as you felt that your most important things got loaded then we are happy. We understand the concept most people are looking for during load time and we want to maximize all the space possible. Glad to have been a help and good luck on the other end!
