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.

All went pretty well 1 hour late but had some car issues. Hired 4 helpers and two ended up being woman. Which would be ok if there wasn't heavy furniture. The two guys worked their buns off. Overall I am satisfied.
THANKS FOR USING ME AN MY CREW TO DO THE JOB.....

I hired 2 guys for 2 hours to unload a 16 foot truck. They arrived on time and were very friendly and professional. The did not take a break and got everything unloaded without any damages. It was a pleasure working with these guys. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to get this type work done.

Totally awesome! Get people and very very helpful!!! Efficient and on time. Great personalities and overall nice

One of the two workers showed up 25 minutes late, however they worked very hard and got the job done 30 minutes early. They did not damage any of my things and overall they did a good job.
This was a wonderful experience, the boxes and small furniture was very well packed. I will say that some of the larger items appeared to be tossed in at the last minute and required some repacking the first night of out of town. It was wonderful and I would most definitely use them again. My only recommendation is to make sure that the furniture pads are used on items at the back of the truck.

Nick and Bobby were prompt, courteous, efficient, helpful, and careful with my possessions. They had all the tools and skills needed, and they finished, and they were expeditious in completing the work. I would request them next time, and I'd recommend them to anyone any time!

5/22/2015reviewing: NES Movers
The guys from NES Movers were great. The boss made contact quickly and kept me up to speed right up until the move. The workers were on time and ready to work. Knocked out the unload and move-in to a 3rd floor walkup in 2 hours flat including the complicated and tough task of getting a big dining room table up the stairs and in. And not a scratch on anything!!! I highly recommend NES Movers.

Mike and Larry did an amazing job. They were really respectful of my time and they made sure to get in contact with me when they found out there was a major accident on I-5. They made sure they didn't scuff any of the walls and they really worked hard the whole time. I would definitely recommend them and will use them again if I ever need to move.

Both workers were on time and worked exceptionally hard in the 2 hours allotted. They were very respectful -- from a personal standpoint as well as our property. Thanks for a job well done! Would use them again.
5/16/2015reviewing: Q's Moving Corp
Truly excellent. Arrived 10 minutes early. Were polite and respectful, listened to which pieces I felt were particularly valuable/fragile and packed accordingly. Extremely professional throughout. The name "Hire-a-helper" makes this sound a little like casual labour, but this could not be further from the truth: these were professional, experienced packers/movers.
Ralph we are delighted to hear how happy you are with our services! We value the time you took to share your experience and feedback with us. Feel free to book us again whenever you need services. Thank you for choosing Q's!

Great job packing a 26' moving truck for a interstate move. Everything was loaded with care, arranged and tied down to ensure the load didn't shift as we made the trek from Tennessee to Virginia. Highly recommend them!
Thank you so much Anil for leaving us a review.. Its the men and women like you that make our job so rewarding. Good luck in Virginia, the Mitchell Brothers are very grateful for your trust and kindness.

Professional, courteous and hard working. My son and I had loaded the 16ft truck so we know how much work was involved. Frankie's team did it without a hitch and with a friendly attitude. I would, without any reservations, recommend them to anyone looking for moving help
