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.

This is the 2nd time I've submitted the review for this job. I'm only submitting the review again because the two men who did the job were exceptional. They were on time, professional and courteous. The treated my belongings as if the were their own. They worked very hard for two hours in extreme heat. I would hire them again and recommend them.
We were impressed with the hard working young men that loaded our truck. They did an excellent job. They worked with us and asked a lot of questions concerning our items. We would recommend them and would hire them again. We thought the price was reasonable because we had a piano and other heavy items. Thank you.

My only complaint is that they were late in showing up. However they did provide an extra helper at no additional charge to make up for it. Once they arrived, they were very efficient and completed the unloading very quickly. I would use them again.
Hi Frederick, Thank you for your review. We were not late at all. You didn't even know what time the pod was coming until the night before at 8:30pm. So we had to plan other work that Morning so we didn't lose any work. We had you between 1-3pm arrival and showed up before 2:00pm. Thanks Dennis

These fellas are top notch professionals and are really good at problem solving. The loaders showed up 15 minutes early. They loaded my truck using all of the space available and even loaded my pickup onto a car hauler for me.
