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 average service provider rating is 4.7 stars out of 5.0 after 41,155 customer reviews.
arrived on time, friendly, hard workers, team leader was very experienced. I was a little confused as I ordered two men for three hours. Three showed up but did the job in two hours. Somehow it cost me about $90.00 extra. That is not the fault of the guys who unloaded my PODS, they were super.
Thank you, we appreciate your business. We apologize for not clarifying the changes in your work order. Based on information provided you, we sent an extra man that was approved prior to the third person starting to work. The job was done more quickly by 3 moving helpers then it would have be with two. The additional monies was for the third helper for two hours, as opposed to our customer paying for an additional hour for two helpers. It is more efficient and cost effective for our customer.

All-Star Movers arrived on time and were prepared for the job. In fact, my relocation to Plano, TX would not have been possible without the assistance of All-Star Movers. Jonathan and Ranzie worked tirelessly to make sure that all of my furniture was able to fit securely into the PODS Container.

Elite Movers arrived on time and unloaded our truck very quickly and carefully. They even had straps to carry the mattress with. All of my furniture and boxes arrived unscratched and unbroken. They were wonderful to work with and I would 100% reccomend them to others. Thank you elite movers!!

Excellent service - started on time and got everything (unload a 16 x 8 footer) done in 2 hours. The team was flexible to come a day early when we got the container earlier than expected.
4/1/2015reviewing: Dyson's Movers
The movers were a running a little late due to the previous job taking longer than expected. I was scheduled for two movers for two hours. It was a simple job of moving boxes (no furniture) from the truck to my third floor apartment. They were quick and professional. They even added third mover at no extra charge. I would definitely use them again.

They showed up within the scheduled hour - and worked their tails off to get the job done as quickly as possible. They were wonderful at accomodating some of my 'non-standard' moving requests and everything arrived safely. Great job!

Frank and his crew are great. Loaded our truck with great care for our belongings. Watch the "tetris" game take shape right before your eyes. I was amazed at their speed and efficiency in loading our 8 room house move. Everything got on. These guys will work hard for you, and make every minute of your move count. Great job.
Mike and team did a great job loading our belongings and furniture into the POD. They were fast and efficient and loaded the POD very carefully and maximized the space. They were able to handle large and heavy pieces. Would highly recommend them!
Our moving labor are employees that work together as a team on a daily basis. That gives them the advantage of knowing how they work with one another. We have a standard manner in which all our employees adhere to. Thank you for noticing.

Platinum Moving Services did a great job unloading my POD. They responded to all my questions, placed things where I asked and helped disassemble and reassemble bulkier items. They were great and I would recommend them to others.
Thank you for choosing our services.

Chris and Juan did an excellent job! They were on time and moved very efficiently. Hard workers and very consciences about packing everything. Will use them again to unload!!!
5/16/2015reviewing: Q's Moving Corp
Truly excellent. Arrived 10 minutes early. Were polite and respectful, listened to which pieces I felt were particularly valuable/fragile and packed accordingly. Extremely professional throughout. The name "Hire-a-helper" makes this sound a little like casual labour, but this could not be further from the truth: these were professional, experienced packers/movers.
Ralph we are delighted to hear how happy you are with our services! We value the time you took to share your experience and feedback with us. Feel free to book us again whenever you need services. Thank you for choosing Q's!
