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

Service is Guaranteed

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.
Recent Customer Reviews:
The average service provider rating is 4.7 stars out of 5.0 after 44,400 customer reviews.
The point/contact person, Jason (I think), is a bit of a space cadet but overall responsive. On moving day, the movers were about 1 hour late, but once on site, worked diligently and efficiently - always asked me before taking any breaks. The move went one hour over and they remained to see it through without any issues. They were careful with all my possessions. I'd hire them again.

I don't usually take the time to write a review, but moving is a big deal. Excellent service! The packing was great and speedy. Very nice and professional guys. Highly recommended!

They were efficiant and mindful of how we wanted items handled.They finished with time to spare, and could have helped unpack some large items however I think they were hired to unload only. We would use them again.

The guys worked very hard and worked quickly, but I don't feel they showed a lot of respect for my possessions. I felt they could have spent more time planning how they were going to load the containers and how to protect fragile and delicate items.
Thank you Noel for the work.

Helpful and friendly. Arrived a little late, but called to let me know. I would give them 5 stars but there was a small ding left when they moved my armoire and I'm waiting to see how my belongings are once they are unpacked. But they definitely maximized the space of the pod!

Very punctual. Great attitude which was helpful because our AC was not working (95 degrees out). They were efficient and got things done quickly without breaking anything.
Thanks so much for using Spratt Moving Services . We appreciate it.

The two men were VERY good! They took great care to insure my belongings were well wrapped and secure in the moving POD. I also appreciated how careful they were not to mark my walls as they moved the furniture. Thank you for a great move!!!

On time, well prepared, hard working and skilled at packing a truck well New hire had a few careless moments Michael is definitely a wonderful person to work with who knows the business and gets it done - on time! HireaHelper could have been easier to work with regarding my inventory, however - need better operating system for online inventories

Hard working, well organized, personable, cared for my furniture and kept all scratch and dent free. Hope to not move again too soon, but, if so, I'll make every effort to locate and use these guys.

My helpers kept us informed about their arrival time. When the arrived the not only worked hard but they worked smart. They took great care unloading 11,200 lbs of household furniture and goods. They cleaned up the area when the job was complete. I would highly recommend them.
We appreciate you taking the time to leave a review Mr. Lawrence.

I have NEVER had a better moving team. They were quick, smart, and safe. I would hire these guys (and one guy's mom, who came and seriously helped) to do any job, anywhere. I am seriously considering bringing them to San Francisco to help me UNpack.
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!

The Pack and Go team was very professional and efficient. They worked hard, were respectful, and managed to fit all of our stuff into the right sized trailer when we were sure we would need to get another!
