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.

First of all the movers from hire a helper showed up, and they showed up on time. I had some movers scheduled for the day before but they were a no show. The guys were all very conscientious and they handled my belongings with care. They worked quickly and efficiently. I was very happy with them and I would certainly recommend them.

Brian and Jamal were prompt, evaluated the items that needed to be moved, and loaded the truck efficiently. We were very pleased that they were available to unload the truck, as well. Everything went smoothly, and Brian took charge and organized all of our items as they unloaded. I would highly recommend them.
Mrs. Walters it was our pleasure to serve you and your husband. If I could hire you, I would. You work harder than anyone I know. Thank you for your kind words. The job went smoothly because you guys allowed me to do what I do best.

The guys were on time and did a good job emptying my container. The only negative was that they did not bring any tools with them--hand trucks, carts, etc. Things would have gone faster if they had their own.

Anthony and Kenyon from Focus Movers arrived on time and did an excellent job. They worked continuously, made good suggestions and were pleasant to deal with. I'm going to request them again for some moving next week.
Thanks for keeping FocusMovers.com in mind.

6/13/2015reviewing: Unloading Services Helps U Move
they were 45 minutes late but they did call to tell me the morning job took longer than expected. They were pleasant and finished the job in less time than expected. I booked for 5 hours and they only took 3.5 hours to unload a POD unit at the facility and move me into my new Condo. I would definitely use them again.
Thank you Bob for the work !

Showed up early after a short notice request. Finished the job in less than allotted time and were very personable while doing it. They worked hard and consistently until the job was finished to my satisfaction. I will definitely use them again when the time comes.

The loaders turned up on time and got straight to work. They had not brought the hand truck that we had requested, but they still got everything loaded into the containers in the time we had allowed for. They were very careful handling the furniture etc. I would recommend them.
Thanks Jonathan, our apologies regarding the dolly. Glad we were able to get everything completed in the allotted time frame.

Andrew was very professional and really knows how to get every space filled on a truck. He and his helpers treated our things with respect and care. They were also very friendly towards our family. I would highly recommend these movers to anyone.
5/30/2015reviewing: Right Choice - Right Price
Arrived promptly. I scheduled 4 men and only 3 arrived, because of this they stayed an extra hour at no additional charge and got the job done. They were pleasant, came prepared, and we're determined to get the job done. Would recommend! Money well spent!
We were moving from a three story unit to a one story and the four guys that showed up were great. They confirmed the day before, arrived in between the hour window they said they would arrive. You could tell they were experienced, efficient, and they were extremely repectful to our belongings and our property. I would definitely use them again.

The guys were awesome at communicating and really bailed me out of a jam when a different company I had hired didn't respond to my calls or texts. They did my move on such short notice and also did a great job. Thanks guys. You saved the day!
Glad to know we were able to help save the day. There is nothing worse than not knowing where your movers are when such a life altering experience. Hope all ended well back home and you all take great care of yourselves!
