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.

Took off a star because they were late but they did a good job and were very nice to work with. Very respectful and courteous guys, great customer service!! I'd also like to add that it was extremely hot and they had to go up and down three flights of stairs at the apartment and they did great!
7/10/2015reviewing: JJ's Moving
The two young men that helped us were hard workers with good attitudes. We would hire them again. The arrival time was 11:00-12 noon (which is really too big of a window), they showed up at 12 exactly so we had accomplished more on our own and didn't need them for the full time we paid but they accomplished a lot the time that they were there.
Mark, thanks again.

The two gentlemen were professional and went above and beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend both of them. It was hot and humid but they didn't waste a minute and finished on time.
8/5/2015reviewing: A1 Loyalty Movers
They showed up on time and were very professional, courtious and efficient. Additionally, they were prepared with all of the equipment and or tools they needed. I would definitely use them again.
The guys from ProMove were excellent! I reserved 2 hours, and they arrived exactly at the time I arrived with the truck... and they finished in only 90 minutes. Highly recommend!
6/9/2015reviewing: Portland Movers Ready
Martene and Tim showed up on time, worked two additional hours with only a 6 minute lunch break. Very professional, knew how to load our PODS correctly and worked very efficiently. We are moving across country or I would hire them again to help unload. I highly recommend these two gentlemen to be your helpers anytime. Thanks, guys, you did great.
Our loading job was difficult because of the volume of boxes and furniture we were moving. Our movers, especially Brian, strategically loaded our 16' POD floor to ceiling to fit all of our items. They did a fantastic job and I would certainly recommend them to take care of your possessions and fully utilize your available trailer or POD space. We were very happy.
Very helpful pre move. Easy to talk to & quite informative. Day of move, efficient & thorough. Worked diligently. Very polite. Called to inform me they would be a few minutes late from scheduled time. Yes, I would recommend them.
6/12/2015reviewing: H&M Movers
The crew from H&M movers was on time, worked hard, and was considerate with my furniture. Everyone did a good job, but Hector's packing of my PODS was truly a masterpiece. I really appreciated his experience and care and attention to detail. I would recommend them and hire them again!

I cannot speak highly enough of Metro Movers Denver LLC. They were beyond accommodating to my debacle of a situation and were professional and efficient in packing my items.
6/4/2015reviewing: Cape Fear Provisioners of NC LLC
They were on time, well prepared, friendly and polite, worked hard and were careful not to damage anything. They actually finished the job earlier than expected and helped with the clean up. We would definitely use them again.

6/4/2015reviewing: Dyson's Movers
The guys were on time and did a good job emptying my container. The only negative was that they did not bring any tools with them--hand trucks, carts, etc. Things would have gone faster if they had their own.
8/18/2015reviewing: A.R.M.S. Moving
Todd and Walter busted their backs working in high heat and humidity without complaint. They packed way more in my container than I thought possible and did it well under what I thought it would take. Both were polite and professional...5 stars!
7/30/2015reviewing: S & L Express Moving Services
The gentlemen called 10 minutes prior to their arrival, introdeced themselves and each shook my hand. They were polite, courteous, hard working and moved my items with care. The finishing process was well explained, simple and seamless. As a single parent I am often in need of the services of others. I was not disappointed and would recommend them to friends.
Thanks you Suzanne. We appreciate your feedback.

7/24/2015reviewing: Efficient Helper
I have hesitated to write a review because one of your helpers looked like a gang person, which was a little scary for me. Then like a week later my daughters apt gets robbed. I just wonder if they had anything to do with it. So I would not recommend you to anyone I know.
Two guys came. They were careful and efficient. They moved our stuff (1 large bedroom) from a truck to a 3rd-floor with no elevator. It took them two hours, no more, no less. I highly recommend them.
We here at ProMovers1, highly appreciate your business and would like to wish you the best of luck with all your future endeavors.
6/19/2015reviewing: Seize the Day Logistics
They were great! We hired helpers to help pack in Arizona and Seize the Day to unpack in California. The AZ movers arrived three hours late, Seize the day arrived twenty minutes early. They worked quickly and efficiently and were so fast they refunded us an hour we had booked and not used. I would so totally use them again and use them exclusively!
Thank you so much Scott! We pride ourselves on being punctual, fast, and professional. Thank you for noticing and taking the time to let our future customers know. Welcome to San Diego and we hope you are enjoying your new place.
