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?

These guys were great! I was worried that all my things would not fit into the container and they not only did it expertly and efficiently but they took the time to talk to me on the phone to reassure me that everything would go well. They were polite, professional, nice guys and I wish they were on the other end of my move!! I would definitely recommend them. Dana, Las Vegas

They did a great job, worked hard and fast, and even came back a second day when we weren't able to finish on the day scheduled. Our piano mover forgot to come so they helped us out and moved the piano as well.

I selected Hire a Helper to help me unload a 26 ft moving truck in time to return it without being charged extra days. 2 helpers arrived at 10 am and completely saved me. These guys hussled very hard in the heat and I was completely impressed. I was so thankful that I called their dispatch to relay my appreciation. I will go with them when I move out of my current apartment and into a house.

They did a really good job, a few things were a little beat up, and some of the stuff got wet. I am not sure how stuff got wet, and am not sure if it was the movers of a leak in the truck. They worked fast, and got the truck loaded in no time.
