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

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.

4/30/2015reviewing: My Guys Moving Service
Did a great job. Contacted me when they were running late due to traffic to let me know new arrival time. Loaded up and went to new house in under 45 minutes. Got unloaded quickly. Crew was great to work with - they knew how to handle the items, load evenly and nothing was damaged. Would use them again if needed.

We had a phenomenal move with Raheem and Darrell from Jay's Moving Company. They were great guys, moved everything extremely quick and efficiently. I can honestly say that this was my best moving experience. Whenever i have to move again, they will be my first call.

I had to reserve them the day before my move and they were on time, professional and incredibly fast! Made moving hassle-free. I will definitely recommend them!!! Thank You!
Albert and Chris did a great job. They made a valiant effort to fit my numerous possessions and over-sized sectional sofa into the pod, but the sofa just couldn't make it. I feared that would be the case beforehand. I'm still amazed they got everything else in. The packing efficiency was top-notch. I just hope everything arrives intact.

Excellent service! Punctual, efficient, polite and courteous. Most importantly, the job was accomplished on-time, slightly ahead of the scheduled time. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone searching for moving helpers.
5/6/2015reviewing: A3J Moving Services
They were wonderful and efficient. It was the pods company I would never recommend. I needed more pods delivered and had to hire a non-efficient crew.
Thanks for the great review Kathline! Thanks again for choosing A3J Moving Services!

Scott and John were awesome! They were on time, prepared, professional, and loaded our truck so quickly! If I was still in the St. Louis area I would absolutely use them again.

Joe and Anthony were punctual, polite, and extremely efficient. They went about their work immediately upon arrival and asked how I wanted things done as they were packing my container. I will be using them again when it comes time to unpack at my next residence. I highly recommend Macs Movers.

4/20/2015reviewing: Speed Loaders
Hired 2 helpers for 4 hours to unload 2 large PODS. They were on time and very courteous. They worked non-stop and finished a bit early. There were some large pieces to take upstairs which they handled with no problem. Because they were done a bit early, they tried to put a bed frame together. They did not do it right. But unloading they were great and I would recommend and use them again.
5/5/2015reviewing: Harris Moving Company
These fellas are top notch professionals and are really good at problem solving. The loaders showed up 15 minutes early. They loaded my truck using all of the space available and even loaded my pickup onto a car hauler for me.

I had problems getting a hold of them on the day I had asked to help me move. However, the owner did call me and they came as soon as possible. They did a good job, were helpful, respectful, took care of my goods and were friendly. I would use them again.
