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.

I wanted to give them a five star rating, they were on time, courteous, hard working and very pleasant. The problem is that when I got to my next destination and unpacked, I realized they did not wrap up the bed frame with the material that I provided. The bed frame was scratched in multiple places. This could have easily been avoided.
we loaded a full bedroom set into a SUV and you had no Moving blankets you provided TOWELS & SHEETS, which we reminded you during our confirmation call & the day of booking to rent or buy furniture blankets, we even sent a 3rd moving helper free, since parking was terrible in your area ,Javier said to you while loading the metal bed frames) this isn't a good idea and you said if it doesn't fit lets throw them away, but my team wouldn't give up and rearranged the entire SUV reg $30 bedframe

Timely, friendly and efficient. They helped me out when another mover did not show. Highly recommend their services. They finished on time and hustled through the move to make sure we ended on time.
They do the best job and are so nice. I have used them three times and have recommended them to my friends and my residents.

I selected Hire a Helper to help me unload a 26 ft moving truck in time to return it without being charged extra days. 2 helpers arrived at 10 am and completely saved me. These guys hussled very hard in the heat and I was completely impressed. I was so thankful that I called their dispatch to relay my appreciation. I will go with them when I move out of my current apartment and into a house.

Jason and his team arrived on time and were amazing! They had everything moved and packed in no time at all. I was beyond pleased with the guys and the work. I plan to use them again next month when it's time to move everything back into my house after construction is done.
4/19/2015reviewing: Hard Body Haulers
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.
5/28/2015reviewing: All Around Movers
I had booked 3 helpers for 2 hours, but only 2 helpers arrived. They assured me they would get everything done, and they certainly did. Michael and Steven worked very hard and unloaded all our furniture quickly and with care. They were very helpful and did everything we asked. Our bill was amended so we were only charged for the 2 workers. We were very pleased with the service all around.
