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.

Good job, on time and did not waste time. They loaded truck for me of already packed items. I arrived at my destination 500 miles away and everything was still in good condition. I would use them again.

They came 30 min. Early! They were both very professional and a huge help. They treated our things with care and respect. Both guys worked very fast and efficiently. I would highly recommend using them to help move.
They were on time, worked very hard and were careful about not damaging goods or home. They helped set up beds and tables as well. Asked several times if they were doing OK and was there anything else they could do to improve our satisfaction. I would recommend them to anyone.

Great job! Great workers! Very professional. Did a much better job than a moving company. Would recommend them to anyone who is looking for great helpers. They were respectful. Took great care of our property and did an amazing job.
Glad to hear we could make your move a pleasant one. We always say that if you as the customer are prepared, the move will go faster and smoother than you could imagine! Thanks for the praise and take good care!

The two guys who helped us with our local move were extremely professional and efficient! Totally worth the money for a few extra hands. When we got to our new place, we were able to go over the lease with our landlady, etc. while the movers unloaded our Uhaul. I would highly recommend Mack's Moving Company.

Moses and Neseor(sorry if I've misspelled) were AMAZING!! They arrived early, were prepared, kind, hard working and speedy. I didn't have that much to move so I scheduled 2 hours. They had it done in one! I cannot speak highly enough of these two men and how much easier and less stressful they made my move!

Peter and John, the apostles, were very prompt, efficient, polite and hard working. They were personable young men with a strong work ethic.. I would recommend them highly and would use them again if the need should arise. P. Main, KY

Within the initial 2 hours they emptied a 28' semi trailer packed to the roof. They placed all items where directed and always responded with a hearty "Yes Sir." I highly recommend Shane and his crew for any of your moving needs.
5/27/2015reviewing: August Movers
Absolutely wonderful! They speedily and skillfully (and cheerfully!) unloaded our 16 ft container, carrying about half of the contents to the 2nd fl. I would recommend August Movers without any hesitation.
Thank you for the review. We hope you love Portland. From Amy and Randall.

These gentlemen were super friendly, quick and efficient!! I hired them to load a 24' moving truck for me and they were done in less than 2 hours! Not only that, but they took great care in wrapping my furniture well so there would be no damage. Awesome job!
Thank You Heather! God Bless and have a safe trip up north!

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.
5/18/2015reviewing: All Around Movers
Had 4 guys to help my mom move into her new apartment. They showed up 10 minutes early and worked hard in the heat to get it all moved quickly. All 4 guys were very nice and absolutely no damage to anything. Will absolutely use them anytime we need movers and will recommend them to anyone.

Arrived shortly after scheduled arrival time, but called to give me a heads up they were on their way. Worked quickly and got everything done in 2 hours. They were careful with my furniture and my home.
6/27/2015reviewing: Brand Nu-Image Moving
Kenny and Derrick were worth every penny for the service they provided. They came early (after calling and asking my permission) then they were non stop. They never complained and they asked my opinion or thought before moving any piece of furniture or stacking any furniture. They were great!!!
5/29/2015reviewing: 5 Star Moving LLC
Arrived on time despite very short notice. Completely loaded a 16-foot moving truck in 1.5 hours (12 noon until 1:30). Would not hesitate to use this company again.
6/13/2015reviewing: A&N Moving LLC
Both workers were very hard working in the heat with all the stairs and extremely courteous to me and my family. They took exceptional care of my belongings. I would be honored to hire this team again. Thank you A&N Moving. God Bless You

Elvis and his crew showed up on time, worked hard, and didn't break anything. My in-town one-bedroom apartment move took about three hours. They had a can-do attitude and came with all the tools to disassemble and protect my cheap Ikea furniture, and I'm very glad I hired them.

Jamal and Tray arrived at the time that I asked. BTW - I had to modify the start time twice in the day before they were scheduled and they agreed. We worked hard and unloaded a 26 ft truck that was stuffed to the gills in about four hours. These are really good workers.
5/30/2015reviewing: S & L Express Moving Services
Very professional, polite, careful, and on time. Above expectations. They whacked one piece of furniture but it was an awkward piece and understandable. Only con is they didn't mention that this happened. But I would certainly use them again.
Mike, thank you so much for the 5 STAR RATING even after you noticed and issue with an item. Our intentions are never to go with out mentioning any damage and if it is something you would like to contact us about, please don't hesitate. Thanks again.
