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.

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.

The guys that moved me were fantastic! They showed up 15 minutes early. I paid for two helpers and got three. They moved my stuff up five flights of stairs in an hour (I paid for two) and were extremely careful. Great prices and great movers! I would definitely recommend them to everyone!
Thank you so much for your feedback and for sharing your experience with us! Let us know if we can be of service to you in the future!

They did a great job. Booked for two hours to move a 10ft Uhaul full of boxes and a couch and desk into my apartment and they were done in 45 minutes. Also very friendly. Highly recommended.

5/20/2015reviewing: Larry's Movers
Hello Potential Movers, Larry's Movers were about 10 minutes early, asked what the plan was as we toured each room. Then they went about the tasks. The personnel are professional, friendly and were very courteous to me as well as to each other. What a wonderful experience. Thank you so much Larry's Movers. Sincerely, Craig McIntosh
Highly recommended, no complaints whatsoever. They arrived on time with two hand trucks to unload our 7' POD. Responded to several last minute requests. Finished in less than 1.5 hours. Didn't bang or mar anything. Would definitely use them again, but we're hoping and praying this was our last move! Highly recommend HireAHelper as well. They were very responsive at both ends of move.

As soon as the movers showed up they started packing my items right away and they moved everything to my new place very quickly. I was really happy with my service and would use them again.
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!

The two guys who helped us with our local move were extremely professional and efficient! Totally worth the money for a few extra hands. When we got to our new place, we were able to go over the lease with our landlady, etc. while the movers unloaded our Uhaul. I would highly recommend Mack's Moving Company.
5/4/2015reviewing: Prestige SoCal Movers
The men were terrific with loading everything and making sure every thing got into the truck. Only one minus was they came late. I would recommend them for any job.
