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.

The guys were great. They did call to say they would be late,but no big deal. They got the job done in a timely manner and were properly equipped to do their job.
I would highly recommend Bellhops. The lead on the job called me in advance to introduce himself and to confirm their arrival time. The were there when they said they would be and were prepared to start working. They were very respectful and professional. I would use them again.

These guys were awesome. Coordinated with us ahead of time to check on our arrival, which allowed them to start 15 minures early. They unloaded our truck quickly and efficiently, and finished the job early. Everything was brought in safely. Nice guys, and very helpful. Highly recommend them.

Everyone arrived on time, and ready to work. And these gentlemen jusy did not stop until the job was done. All of my things arrived and were stored in good array, and I would not hesitate to employ them again when I need help getting my things moved.
They came early and stayed until everything was completed. They worked hard and were respectful. I would definitely use them again.
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!

Garrett was extremely helpful and conscientious, always taking care to protect our belongings and suggest the best approach for handling the storage container. I would highly recommend this group for any moving needs.
5/26/2015reviewing: D & D Moving & Transport
They called to confirm time, location etc. Only issue was they did not know they were supposed to help pack. They made it work and we finished up 45 early. They worked hard and were respectful of goods.
We try to be prepared for any eventuality that might arise....I'm glad we were able to help your moving day go smoothly! Thank You!!

Wow. These guys are incredible. They came to my rescue when my previously purchased movers no-showed on me. They drove from over 70 miles away, had just done 4 previous jobs that week, but never showed any exhaustion. They lifted the heaviest stuff with ease, never backed down from a challenge. Super fast and thorough! I'd recommend them to everyone I know.

Our movers were on time and prepared for the move. They had hand trucks, furniture dollies, and furniture pads included with the move and were respectful of property.

The two men who loaded our truck for our move were fast, efficient, and most of all very protective of our furniture. Having retired from long haul, semi tractor trailer operator, I know, what good careful handling of our possessions looks and feels like. Thanks Guys. We recommend this crew most highly. sincerly, E.F. Ebner
