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.

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.

Great Job. Hired for 2 hours, done in 1.5 hours. They finished in the light rain, very professional and respectful on my furniture and the apartment. Well worth the money, on time, and had the needed dollies move heavy desk. I would surely use them again, they made me realize, I will never carry furniture upstairs (or down) again when I move.
Thank you for choosing our services.

Our helpers arrived on time, were very pleasant and professional. We finished loading in two and a half hours. Our things arrived intact, though a few items will need scratches touched up. Nothing broken. Would recommend the service to others.

Brandon's Best Services were absolutely great. Very professional, right on time, and careful with my stuff, which had basically been thrown into the container by the guys in Minnesota. They brought blankets, they were polite, and they were really fast. They truly were "movers."

5/1/2015reviewing: Moving With Caution & Care
Kenny and Josh were awesome. They were able to get to my place earlier than expected. There was a change in my moving situation between booking them and them showing up and they just took it in stride. They packed my belongings carefully and effectively, no broken items at all. I will definitely be using them again when I move into my final location.
They all worked very hard and were Vere professional. They needed very little guidance.
Thanks, James! Robert, Josh, and Kevin were at your service. We don't expect guidance from the customer since we are EXPERIENCED MOVERS however we are willing to accommodate customer's special requests if we can work it into the move.
4/30/2015reviewing: Done Right Movers
They were on time and very friendly. They were very careful getting my oversized desk into my sewing room, when we realized they would have to take off the door, door trim and desk top to get it in. The top was reattached, door replaced and except for a tiny bit of paint on the trim you would never know. Thanks guys!
4/7/2015reviewing: Good Guy Movers
They called me a few minutes after I booked the reservation online. I spoke with Joey, who was very courteous and experienced. Overall they did a great job. They showed up on time and took care of the job in a short amount of time. I would book their services again in a heartbeat.

Prompt, courteous, cautious, and hard working, Lucas and his assistant were much better than I dared hope. My moving job entailed hoisting several expensive pieces of furniture to an upper floor, and they treated them very carefully. I will definitely use 5-Star Moving again.
You had a lovely home, thanks Kent
