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.

Guys were very polite and worked quickly. Packed the Pod very efficiently. One broken piece of furniture (Ikea bookshelf, not unexpected, they are flimsy). Would definitely work with these guys again.
Glad to hear we could make your day easier,sorry about the bookshelf but yes (particle board) in most cases doesn't like to be moved twice but glad all else went smooth. Enjoy the new area and take care!

Great Job, Good demeanor. They worked quickly and even suggested doing a walkthrough to see if there was anything else that needed moving. I would use them again in a heartbeat. In fact, I may need them in a couple of weeks. Any chance they could call me in two weeks? THANKS! Brad Graiser

I called last minute night before I needed help, (thought I could do it myself....would have been a big mistake). George and Bill came early and we're done ahead of time. U haul loaded and tied down very well....I drove load over 90 miles and nothing damaged....unloaded myself. I wish I had another load so I could use them again!

Our movers did a great job! Very nice and professional. Ms. Doris was on top of everything and managed it very well. They arrived right on time and worked quickly despite bad weather. I would recommend them to anyone looking to hire a mover!
The team was punctual, hard working, and very polite. We had one small piece of mahogany veneer pulled off a buffet, but I believe it can be easily repaired. I look forward to using them again very soon.

Eddie Deary and Bryan Hart were the 2 staff members that loaded my household items into a storage container provided by 1-800-Pack-Rat. They were very professional, friendly and took such great care of my items. I appreciated their hello and they really did a wonderful job. I'm very happy with the service they provided in moving my items.

These guys were good. They were friendly, well dressed, and professional. They worked from the minute they got here to the minute they left. No damage to the house or furniture. We got more done than I had expected, so that was a bonus for me. I wish I could hire these same guys on the other end of this move. Highly recommended.

We needed help unloading our moving truck for a middle of the week close. It was booked the day before and they were still available to work before our scheduled appt. They handled all our items with extreme care and very fast. They even swept out the truck for us since we couldn't find our broom. Highly recommended and would use them again.
