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.

- They were on time - They were very professional and courteous - They were hard workers - The previous renters left a lot of items in the attic and they brought everything down for me. - They were respectful of my property and goods - I would definitely recommend them! - I hired them initially for 2 hours and ended up needing them for 4 hours!

Booked two guys for two hours to help us unload. The move went very quickly and smoothly. We ended up getting the entire truck unloaded in only about 45 minutes. Trent and Ricky both did a great job and handled all of our furniture with care. Nice guys too - would definitely recommend them.
Thank you Sam. We appreciate your business.

Wow! Really took charge and got everything unloaded without any issues. On time and very hard workers. Used them 2 days later for our 2nd load - just great moving help!
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.

Second day, they showed up on time (my only rating deduction for first days job) and everything went as planned. They were always respectful of my belongings and polite about requests I had. Great Job!
Were in communication and showed up on time. They did a good job packing the truck for a long distance move and their expertise was helpful with some packing challenges I had. I have used them twice and would highly recommend them!

The crew showed up, introduced themselves and got straight to work. They were friendly and fast. They were gentle with the furniture and packed the truck so nothing shifted during drive. Upon arrival at the storage unit it took no time to unpack and store. I would certainly use them again.
