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.

We needed help unloading our moving truck for a middle of the week close. It was booked the day before and they were still available to work before our scheduled appt. They handled all our items with extreme care and very fast. They even swept out the truck for us since we couldn't find our broom. Highly recommended and would use them again.

Helpful Movers was great! DiMarco & Quentin did a fantastic job of moving all of my very important "stuff". They showed up, were ready to roll and did the job quickly and efficiently. They did not damage anything. They were careful, polite and very professional. I highly recommend them. You'll be happy you did!

Movers arrived on time. Hard working. Careful with property. Would use them again. One suggestion would be to discuss the property being moved in more detail prior to moving day so that any special tools/equipment that is needed will be provided.
Thank you Mr. Lightner.

This was the 3rd time I've used Samuel Services. They were on time, they came prepared to work and worked very hard. They were very careful with the furniture and walls and very respectful over all. I would certainly hire them again. In fact, they are the only movers I'll use.

Glen did a wonderful job helping us. he was on time very courteousand me sure that our furniture in boxes were unloaded properly save carefully. Glen communicated with me right away when I first schedule my mood with hire a helper and was easy to get in touch with throughout the engagement. I will gladly use Glen for my next move and recommend him to my friends.
Marcos and Eddy were my assigned helpers in Austin, Texas. They got here early and then worked not only hard but carefully. Good men. Good local company. I've used Hire a Helper twice now with first rate results so I am a satisfied customer. Moving ain't easy, but hiring helpers surely makes it less difficult.

Our helpers arrived on time, were very pleasant and professional. We finished loading in two and a half hours. Our things arrived intact, though a few items will need scratches touched up. Nothing broken. Would recommend the service to others.
