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

Service is Guaranteed

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.

Antoine and Elijah were on time, loaded the moving pod in a timely manner, and helped me box up some last minute items. They were professional and friendly. I would recommend them. I appreciate that their services were recommended through 1-800-Pack-Rat so that I did not have to find a random company. Moving is hard and having good help is a big plus. THANKS.

I used Move Pros on 2 different days to load my Rat Packs. Both days they did a great job. Kelly is the lady "behind the scenes" and she was a delight to work with. I highly recommend using Move Pros, and will definitely call them back to unload once my home is ready.

Very communicative, they called to confirm arrival time so I could plan my arrival at the storage unit, and handled loading the moving truck in an efficient and strategic manner. Everything arrived in perfect condition, and the move was completed on-time.

I really appreciate my helpers being able to come on such short notice and so late in the day. They were so helpful and were super nice. I am very happy with my service.
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.

Awesome guys! They arrived bright and early and didn't waste any time. I was worried about the huge treadmill upstairs but they were able to take it apart and bring it down. Great job! Definitely recommend!
7/3/2015reviewing: Family Movers
Great great experience. I only had one pod to empty but these guys had it emptied and the beds and other item reassembled in about half an hour. I wish I had used them when I was filling the pod. Overall great experience. I'd use them again and recommend them to friends.

Very respectful movers! They worked hard to move my third floor apartment! They were 45 minutes late but only because they couldn't get the truck out of the warehouse. I would use them again.

Tony and Steve were expert at fitting all my stuff into a relatively small storage space. And they did it in record time. They were fast, efficient, and friendly. I'd hire them again in a second.

The men were not on time but in all fairness we had to push back some too as we were delayed in traffic. they were well prepared and completed the job in two hours and were very respectful of our property. They wanted to know where we wanted the boxes and furniture placed. I would recommend them and use them again if the need arises.
