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.

On time, pleasant, and hard working. Deducting one star because something was broken, but partially my fault for not designating fragile. I would recommend them though, big help on the move and very good price. Thank you!
These fellas were wonderful and great to work with. I highly recommend them. Fantastic job and couldn't be happier.

Great Job!!! Showed up when they said they would, were very professional, courteous, careful, and solution-oriented. Worked hard the entire time. My move was particularly difficult, but they made it work. I would definitely use them again and would recommend them.

I called last minute night before I needed help, (thought I could do it myself....would have been a big mistake). George and Bill came early and we're done ahead of time. U haul loaded and tied down very well....I drove load over 90 miles and nothing damaged....unloaded myself. I wish I had another load so I could use them again!

They did a great job handling and packing my trailer. Really packed my trailer tight to save me as much space as possible. Really no complaints other than I would have liked to have seen a little more of a sense of urgency. But definitely would recommend.
They arrived on time and were very professional. They packed my pack rat to capacity. 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!

Houston and Joey were excellent movers. Great attitudes and extremely cautious with our fragile and non-fragile items. They finish the job in a timely manner and were very professional. Would definitely hire them again.
It was houston and Al, but we appreciate the review and the business. Give us a call for any further moving needs. Ogre Man Movers llc

They were on time and worked very hard loading. They asked questions if they were not sure about an item and were very efficient at packing. There were a couple of minor dings when the items were unpacked but to be expexted in a move. I would hire them again.

I have been stressed and under some pressure due to caring for a family member that had a stroke. The guys came in and assured me that they will work with me until the job was done and those words and their deeds blessed me. I would use this company again and again

Movers were on time, prepared, worked efficiently and got the pack-rat container loaded faster than I expected. They were friendly, courteous and respectful of our "stuff." I would definitely use them again, and recommend them to everyone I know that needs to move a household or apartment. Thanks to Drew, and Juan for a great job!

I could not have asked for a better crew to help us move. The guys were punctual, very hard working, courteous and nice. They made a terribly stressful day much more bearable. Thank you!

These guys were sure to call and make sure everything was scheduled correctly and showed up on time. They were polite and worked fast. Even though they are not a big brand name moving company they took care with furniture handling. I would reccomend these guys if you are on a budget and don't want to spend top dollar for movers.
You guys were great,...thank you again for the cold drinks! God Bless!

they showed up 1.5 hours late. however, when they did get there, they were polite and did a good job. it was a nice surprise that 3 of them showed up and worked for the two hours, same price. it was *very* helpful to have the third person. not all were as hard working, but it was a net positive.

Arrived on time, very friendly, very professional. Hired 2 men for 2 hours, worked straight through despite the hot Richmond summer weather. Got an entire 26 ft Uhaul cleared in 2 hours!
Although they were a little bit late, they ended up finishing our move in less than an hour! We had a time limit with door to door so we were happy to get it done so quickly. Really nice guys and they travelled about an hour to get to us.

They had all the tools they needed. They took great care of our items. They worked hard. I would use again and highly recommend them.

As with all service jobs at your home, the time stated is a window. The gentlemen that did the work for me kept me updated as to exactly when they would arrive. Once on site they got right to work and did an excellent job. I had a few fragile pieces and you would have thought that they owned them the way they treated them. I highly recommend these gentlemen.
