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.

This pair knew how to pack a trailer They needed more information as it was a local move with load and unload but it all worked out fine. I almost hired day laboroters but they would not have had the experience of loading skills and I would use them again as they cared about my things
Dan, it's reviews like this that makes our doing this more than 9 years worth it! Thanks for your 5 star review and recommendation! Rick K. owner

The helpers did a good job packing my belongings into two PODS containers and still with room to spare. Eveything was done professionally. The only thing concerned me was the fact that they stepped on my sofa armrests to stack boxes up. It was raining all day and their shoes were dirty. So I will have to clean the sofa after the furniture is unloaded.

Great job. Nick and Antonio helped to unload my 8x16 POD into my second story 2 bedroom apartment. Everything was safe and sound without a scratch to the materials or the apartment. Couldnt have asked for a better service. Very willing to work with me on a timeframe as well. Thanks a lot.

8/24/2015reviewing: Coast to Coast Moving Services
We wound up asking Rudin and his helper to stay for 6 hours instead of the 2 originally ordered. They packed that trailer so professionally that without their packing experience, we would not have fit all our goods on one trailer Excellent job!
6/20/2015reviewing: NES Movers
These guys were great. They were really smart, hard working, and fast. The furniture they took apart, they carefully noted and marked exactly how and where the pieces go together so they could put it together easily, carefully managed the hardware to ensure it was all there. They were friendly, helpful, and generally seemed to find the fun in moving heavy shit on a hot day.

8/30/2015reviewing: Anytime Movers LLC.
This is the fourth time I've used this moving company. They always show up on time/if not earlier and do a fast, efficient job. They took extra care of my belongings, and were extremely patient with all of my heavy stuff. Even the person I moved in with was impressed with how quick and efficient they were. Will always/only use Anytime Movers! Totally recommend them to all of my friends.

7/30/2015reviewing: Mobile Moving
Glenn and his crew were amazing! They showed up on time, worked like animals, were polite and kind, and didn't damage a single piece of furniture or scuff a single wall. They completed my work in the time allotted and were completely and utterly professional. Would highly recommend to anyone and I will be using them again should we require movers. 5-stars, Two thumbs way-up!
6/30/2015reviewing: Done Right Movers
The two movers arrived within the scheduled time and came with carts and equipment to help me move into my new place. They were also smart enough to have a fan that they could hook up to help keep the trailer/truck a little cooler during the 3 hour process. They worked consistently and worked well together as a team. I especially appreciate them putting together my beds and other furniture.
The movers arrived exactly on time, were prepared, friendly, and finished the job ahead of schedule. There weren't any problems with damage to furniture and they were careful not to scuff floors or mar the walls.
