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.

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

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.

Awesome guys! Very hard working. They were very careful with our furniture and personal items. Did exactly what we asked of them and were very accommodating. We will be moving again and I am definitely going to use them next time.
5/21/2015reviewing: Helpful Movers
My movers were completely prepared for the job, and they were super helpful! They were very careful with all my property and goods. They went out of their way to create innovative packing solutions for my TV and framed pictures, as I did not have specific boxes for those items. They did not really take breaks; they worked until the job was done! I would highly recommend Damus, Gino, and Quinton.
Awesome group of guys. Very professional and polite. Great communication leading up to the move to arrange timing. Got to work immediately and finished the job much sooner than I could've imagined. Will definitely use them again and refer them to friends.

The movers showed up on time also they helped shrink wrap and cover certain items. They stayed longer to help finish the job. I would use them again in future.

They were on time, efficient and friendly! A couple of the movers even got stuck in a freight elevator and still got the job done on time. They did an excellent job and made moving much less stressful. No complaints! I will definitely recommend them and use them again for my next move.
5/23/2015reviewing: BASIK MOVERS
I could not be happier. They were on time and worked every minute of the two hours. The two men were cheerful, polite and well-mannered. They treated my stuff even better than I do. Nothing was dropped, scratched, or mishandled in any way. I HIGHLY recommend them and would definitely use them again.

These two guys were on time and professional all the way. When they had a concern regarding the safety of moving a particular large piece of our furniture rather than just forge ahead and the consequences be dammed, they instead chose to call their supervisor for confirmation on exactly how to handle it or whether to handle it or not. Everything went very well.
Trevor Canturbry and his helpers were friendly, courteous and very professional. Cudos to you for having such great associates. They arrived when promised.
3/14/2015reviewing: Tri-City Movers
The 2 men from Tri-city did a wonderful job. Move completed ahead of schedule with no damage. They treated our furniture as if it were their own. Will not hesitate to use Tri-city in the future.
Thank you for the review Bob. We are so glad we were able to assist you.

The movers were nice and professional. My issue is with the management. The movers said they only had an hour or two of sleep due to a late job the night before. You could tell they were exhausted.
3/22/2015reviewing: Witmer's Moving and More
Charlie & his helper were great! They came a few minutes early & got right to work. They even agreed to work 3 extra hours to finish the job! They dismantled & reassembled furniture as they went. We never want to move again but if we do we'll hire them again in a heartbeat!!
Thank you very much. We are glad we could help you out. Enjoy your new home

Professional, hard-working guys, on time and prepared for the job. They never stopped working, were a joy to work with, and took excellent care of my property. Their packing skills are unsurpassed. I would recommend them without reservation. and plan to request them by name for later moving tasks.

Great job packing a 26' moving truck for a interstate move. Everything was loaded with care, arranged and tied down to ensure the load didn't shift as we made the trek from Tennessee to Virginia. Highly recommend them!
