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.

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.

I would have to say they did a great job. They arrived early and worked very hard. They were prepared with the dolly, tape and packing pads. They were respectful of my property and completed the work in record time. I would definitely recommend them to others.

They called ahead to let me know they were on their way, arrived and got right to work. Everything got where it needed to go, and they went the extra mile in helping me set up a heavy piece of furniture I would have had a hard time putting together on my own. I will definitely call them again.

They were awesome! They were on time, very nice and did a fantastic job packing and unpacking our furniture. They wouldn't let me move or help. They always said they'd get it. Great gentleman. We'd use them again in a heart beat.
4/26/2015reviewing: CHAZ & CREW
Chaz and crew were on time and brought extra crew members. They worked hard and were respectful. We did have damage to several pieces of upholstered furniture. I believe this could have been avoided if the shrink wrap we provided had been used to wrap these pieces. We also provided moving blankets as required.
Thank you Mrs. Gianelos. If you recall we ran out of the moving pads you provided shortly after we began loading. I'm sorry that your chairs were smushed in the POD. We could have packed things easily into the 3 pods that you had, but we forced them into the 2 containers as you requested in order to save money. Shrink wrap would not have prevented that. They should return to form over time.

Dave and his guys were great! They were courteous, professional, and very patient with my too-much-stuff-not-enough space situation with my POD. They were also careful not to scratch my floors and walls or my furniture. They worked non-stop until they couldn't fit another thing on that POD! By far, my best experience with movers, and I've moved A LOT!
Jessica we are glad we could be there to help with your move an wish you and your family the best in your new place. Thanks for Work.

Roy and Frazier did a great job unloading our POD. Both worked together as a team and showed real care in handling our furniture. On time, really to go to work and worked steady for three hours straight without a break. We would recommend them to anyone making a move.
