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

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.

AJ and Jason did an amazing job! We completely underestimated the amount of stuff in our house but they were able to get so much into the truck! They worked quickly and were super helpful and friendly! I would definitely have them help again!
We requested the David Reyes team which was the second time we requested them. They are AWESOME!! They were here on time, had the tools and equipment necessary to do the job, they were fast, efficient and careful with our property. When something was damaged in transit, they showed us before it came off the truck. These are the guys you want - Great job David Reyes!!

I needed help on short notice yet they were able to accommodate the need. Crew was delayed about 1 hour from previous job but communicated well. They were innovative completing a job which seemed impossible
Thanks so much Dan, we're glad our services fit your needs! - Strong Arm Moving

This is second time we've used Southern Cross Movers, and they performed well again. The two man team was very helpful and professional. I will definitely use Southern Cross for any future moving needs.
Thank you for hiring us again and I am glad but not shocked that you got the same service from my guys. I have the best employees in the area and they know how to take care of our customers. Thank you for taking the time to write that review.

7/6/2015reviewing: Moonlight Movers
Moonlight Movers crew showed up exactly on time and were terrific. They helped me prioritize what to do first, as I had two or three things going at once. Adam and Marcus ( I believe those are their names) were cheerful, know how to handle items and got my truck properly packed and got the most of my dumpster. They were unfailingly polite. I would hire Moonlight Movers again in a second!
Glad to have been able to help you finish your move out. You treated us like family and we couldn't have asked for a more down to earth lady to make the job go smooth. Safe travels!

8/2/2015reviewing: AJ Moving & Delivery LLC
The guys at AJ Moving were fantastic. We scheduled them for four hours because we had a 16' truck filled with boxes and some furniture. They finished in an hour! I couldn't recommend this group more. You can book them without any concern, plus their price is very reasonable.
6/29/2015reviewing: Lewis Moving Company
Antoine and Elijah were on time, loaded the moving pod in a timely manner, and helped me box up some last minute items. They were professional and friendly. I would recommend them. I appreciate that their services were recommended through 1-800-Pack-Rat so that I did not have to find a random company. Moving is hard and having good help is a big plus. THANKS.

These guys did a great job. They showed up on time, and quickly began unloading two large trucks. They got the work done quickly and professionally and they didn't even cause a scratch to the house. We were very impressed. 5 stars all the way.
8/28/2015reviewing: Save U $$$ Services
They arrived on time and did a great job getting all my stuff into the trailer. It took a lot longer then the estimate, but they worked the entire time so I can't complain about it.
8/26/2015reviewing: Patriot One Movers
My husband and I hired Frank and his team to help us load a storage POD for an out of state move. They were able to accomodate our change in schedule to earlier in the morning. These guys were super friendly, professional and packed our POD like a perfectly played Tetris game. I would absolutely recommend Patriot One Movers to anyone!
