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.

They came on time and did a great job. The guys who did our move were very nice and very helpful. We had to change the time of our move several times and the person who handled that was very flexible and always responded immediately when I left a message. I highly recommend the movers that operate out of Saratoga Springs NY.
Thank you. Enjoy your new home.

They worked very hard and took great care with our furnishings. The only complaint I had was that they arrived later than we had asked for although they gave us advance notice of their arrival time. I will definitely use them again.

Brian and Angelo arrived early, they had to wait for me. My job required them to move appliances and boxes to a truck, and then remove heavy cement chunks from the basement. They did the job quickly, and without incident. I recommend Grunts on Demand.
Thank you so much Mrs. Prunty, for those flattering words. Our goal here at Grunts On Demand is to give 100% service, 100% of the time

Two guys loaded a sixteen foot Pack Rat in three hours. They moved everything out of the house with skill, wrapped what needed to be wrapped and used every available space in the shipping container. No complaints.

The service provided by Rob & Dave was excellent. They showed up in the agreed to time frame, they were both kind, courteous and helpful. They understood that this is a nervous situation for their customer, so they took over the situation and made it a much more pleasant experience. I would highly recommend to anyone that they hire Halkus, you won't be sorry.

Foxhound Moving is excellent! They were on time and very prepared for the job. The guys worked hard immediately upon arrival and knocked out the job in a few minutes with no issues. Very respectful and reliable. I would certainly hire them again. Call Daniel and explain what you need, he will certaily square you away.
3/21/2015reviewing: Moonlight Movers
Midnight movers were terrific in all ways. They were timely, careful and courteous. I have a problem with the mark-up charged by Hire-a Helper. Midnight movers charge only $65 per hour for two workers. You folks charged me $275 for the first two hours, a mark-up of $145. What exactly did you do to earn $145? I would tell anyone not to book through your service!
Lol thank you sir for the kind critiquing of our work ethic,we certainly pride ourselves in it. As for the "Mothership" this is their system and though many others don't agree, we are fortunate enough that their marketing is what directs you to us. Not to mention they have OUTSTANDING customer service and treat us, the Service Providers like family. Glad as a whole we could make your day easier and best wishes you guys!

4/8/2015reviewing: Top Choice Movers
My movers were great, they not only moved everything (which I was dreading) but they optimized the pack-out of the van I rented to make sure everything fit. Side note, I feel kinda bad, I onlytipped them $40 total, but found out afterward they get wages similar to a waitstaff. I would've tipped more if I'd known because it was well worth it!!!

The guys showed up 15 minutes early and were very respectful and polite. They assessed the things that needed to moved working very smartly.
