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.

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.

Couldn't have asked for more. Arrived on time, worked steady and hard the entire time. Most importantly, they were very careful with every item they moved, were very respectful of the house we moved in to and were so nice to work with that they reduced our stress level. The guys were great in every way - I will definitely use them again.

They were very efficient, got to my house on time and started unloading within 5 minutes. The whole team was very polite and always making sure the furniture was at the right place. 100% recommended
They were a great team. They worked hard and didn't waste any time getting everything loaded. They were extremely careful with the furniture and did everything they could to ensure everything would make it to the other end undamaged.
The guys were so hardworking and helpful. We were so impressed with their professionalism and with the care they gave our house and belongings. We would and will hire them again.
They were very friendly, professional and did an excellent job! They moved my stuff out of two door to door storage containers and put together my bed in under 2 hours. I highly recommend them and would definitely use them again.

They came the same day. When we requested last minure. Very professional, fast and considerate. Pack and Go unloaded for us, and the care they took helped minimize any damage left ny the company who loaded very poorly into our pack rats. Highly recommended. Will definite use again if we need someone.

9/22/2015reviewing: J & L movers
They were wonderful! I had an issue where the upack company was very late delivering my things and J & L movers were very accommodating even though they had to wait for my things to be delivered. They were very swift and professional, and also made me feel comfortable with them handling my property. I recommend this company whole heartedly and will definitely use them in the future.
