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.

The team at S&L were wonderful to work with. They called to confirm their arrival time, showed up when promised and completed all the work quickly and efficiently. I had them pack and load my items. They were respectful of my items and I was happy with the end result. I highly recommend them and would use them again myself.
Thanks Garrett, thank you for the review and the awesome 5 STAR rating.

J.C.Movers were the right choice! The team of Antoine and Izore were fantastic. They were punctual, and professional. Presented a business card and introduced themselves before they began by first looking over all the articles and boxes that were to be packed. I would use this company again.
8/27/2015reviewing: Sebastian Moving
The team from Sebastian Moving was top notch! I had originally scheduled a 3 hour move for our cluttered apartment, but the movers were done within 2 hours (which was right about when the rain started - lucky for me). Everyone was professional and gentle with our belongings. I would definitely recommend Sebastian Moving to anyone needing movers and would use them again in a heartbeat!

~ Southern Cross Moving
The guys were on time, professional, and very efficient in handling the job within the 2 hours. They packed the truck extremely well, being careful not to damage any of my belongings. They all had very respectful, positive attitudes! I would highly recommend this team of movers and would gladly use them again!
Emptied a 26 foot truck in two hours! The guys were on time, had dollies and moving straps, they were friendly and worked hard on a very muggy day. They took care of some very fragile stuff in a very careful manner, too. I'll use Southern Cross again for sure.
Wow 2 hours that is pretty impressive and assemble beds and set your house up.Way to go guys keep up the good work and thank you Mr M for the review.

The two gentlemen that arrived on time and had my portable moving unit repacked and safely secured in less than two hours. They respected my property and asked if there was anything else I would like help with. When I have sold my house and have my Unit transferred to a long distance mover, I plan to hire Mach1moving again.
