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.

I was truly amazed with these two!! They were on time and we had a delay in getting the truck so instead of the two hours it took 4. It actually took them 1 hour to load the truck and 3 hours for the truck to arrive. I would most definitely recommend them for any time of move. If I would have known they traveled I would have hired them for the entire move!!!! I was blown away.

They arrived early and got right to work. They were able to get several boxes and pieces of furniture up to my second floor. They finished the job right on time too! This was a 3 bedroom house loaded on a 24 foot trailer. I would use them again if I had to. Hopefully I can enjoy this home for years to come. Thanks guys!

josh and Jason are two very hard workers. I was most impressed by their positive attitude! we needed them to help us move our heavy things to a third floor apartment and not only did they get the job done but they did it much faster than I expected! we asked them to reschedule from the morning to the afternoon and they accommodated us no problem. I would definitely recommend them,
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 were fantastic! They unloaded my 16 ft POD in an hour and put everything right where I wanted it. They were very polite and had all the materials needed to get my things where they needed to go. I will use them on my next move for sure.
We really appreciate your business Taylor. Thanks

Dave knows his stuff alright! He knew to take care of the few valuable items that needed to be transported. We did three full loads of a 26ft UHaul! They were on time, well prepared for the job, worked hard, very respectful of my property and goods, and I would use them again. Not only that, I will recommend them to anyone else who is moving.

Outstanding job. My movers showed up on time and were ready to go right to work. They did a great job moving all of my belongings and got a lot more into the moving truck than I expected. I would definitely recommend and use them again. Thanks guys!!!
7/13/2015reviewing: J & E MOVING
Hard workers indeed! It was a very hot day and they had to lug my heavey fragile antiques up a very steep and curved hill to get to my front door. Nothing was broken and all four movers were a delight to work with.
6/8/2015reviewing: Five Star Moving LLC
On time, no problems. Did not provide any equipment. Worked well with direction. Were careful with my property. Were a little expensive compared to other labor services in the area.
If we had brought equipment, we would have brought carts. But we knew the facility already provides them hence the reason not bringing any. As far as your concern with our price compared to others, we were on time, had no problems, worked well with direction, were careful with your property, had no damages whatsoever, loaded your belongings into storage safely and got it done better & faster than the others would have. I guess it comes down to you get what you pay for. Thank you for choosing us!

Hardest working crew. Arrived on time & stayed both days until job was completed. Wonderfully careful with my packing. Optimized space in the POD. Will most definitely recommend Lucky Movers through Hire a Helper.
8/23/2015reviewing: Tri-County Movers
The Tri-County team showed up on time and did excellent work. My items were carefully protected, loaded into the moving vehicle and packed into a 10 x 10 storage unit. Everything arrived with no damage. They were great and I will hire them again in the next month or so.
6/18/2015reviewing: Turn Back Time Movers
Great job and got it done in less time than we planned. Professional and on time arrival. Got all my stuff in the allotted amount of space so I didn't have to pay extra to the trucking company. Would recommend without hesitation.
