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.

My husband and I decided to hire some movers to pack our storage pod for our long distance move. I was a little hesitant about hiring someone to move and pack all our belongings. The two young men that showed up were wonderful! They worked hard and took care in moving our stuff. I would highly recommend this company and would use them again with no hesitation.

They arrived right on time, went right to work. I live in a 3rd floor apartment, which involved them having to use the elevator and walk further than normal. They worked very hard and were very pleasant. They were very careful with my things. I would use them again and highly recommend Superior Service.
We aim to provide the safest, fastest, most affordable moving services in the industry and would like to thank all of our wonderful customers for allowing us to continue to fulfill their moving needs.

The two men arrived on time and were very good to work with. They were organized, prepared and quickly came up with the best way to proceed with moving my household items into our storage pod. They were careful with my furniture and boxes, and did a great job of fitting everything into the limited space in the pod. I highly recommend them.

The two workers came on time and worked efficiently. They had my entire studio apartment packed into a portable shipping container in 1 hour. I would recommend them!

Josh and Adam were excellent. They were professional, courteous, and hard working. The 26' foot rental truck was carefully packed floor to ceiling with no spare room which along with sparing me the back breaking labor was worth every $ spent on hiring them.
Thank you Paul for the great review on the movers we provided to you on the day of your move. Yes they are two of the great movers we have along with many others on our staff. We are pleased you had a 5 star moving exp and a stress free move. Glad we saved your back so you can sit back and relax. If you need our services in the future just give us a call anytime Paul. Thank you again for your business!

this crew was great. They were on time and prepared to work. They spent a good amount of time ensuring the storage trailer was packed efficiently to get the most use of it. I wasn't sure everything would fit but it did and with room to spare.They took good care of the furniture and would definitely use them again.

9/19/2015reviewing: Champion Movers
Champion Movers were fantastic. Renee coordinated very well. Gave me an honest estimate of how long it would take. Made sure there wasn't going to be any hiccups. The movers, Mike and Zane, contacted me and kept me updated on when they were going to arrive. They showed up and killed it. I would definitely recommend and use them again.

I used 10 months ago to move from Ca to NV. They did such a great job that I just hired to move my mom. We even requested the same two movers and were able to get one of them. Again a great job. Will definetly refer to family and friends
8/24/2015reviewing: Sundaze Movers
They arrived several hours after the scheduled time, although the company dispatcher did keep me up to date on revised ETAs, which I appreciated. The two movers were very careful with my belongings; quite experienced in the proper way to load a POD; and were conscientious about concerns I raised. It took 2.5 hours to load a 16-foot POD from a 2nd floor apartment.
Thank you Gary! We have very experienced movers on our crews! We try to get our moves done in a reasonable amount if time!

Best decision I've made in a while. They had an additional worker with them and finished 2-3 hours early. All of the guys were very nice, and extremely hard-working. Not a wall scuffed nor item damaged. Not only would I recommend them, but if I ever need to move again, I'll be calling these guys. A++!
