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.

4/6/2015reviewing: Local Moving LLC
On time, prepared, patient, personable, very flexible, very respectful, extremely hard working. We had problems (our fault--lost our key to the POD). First crew of five raced to unload POD after waiting a long time; and load to a moving van. Second crew, later that day, did an excellent job unloading the van. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
4/30/2015reviewing: My Guys Moving Service
Did a great job. Contacted me when they were running late due to traffic to let me know new arrival time. Loaded up and went to new house in under 45 minutes. Got unloaded quickly. Crew was great to work with - they knew how to handle the items, load evenly and nothing was damaged. Would use them again if needed.
Despite a descrepancy in move in dates, they were able to get a couple of guys out same day and get the move done. They finished unloading a 16' Pack Rat box in less than two hours. Great work!!
The workers were very professional and exceptionally courteous. We could not have asked for any better. Overall, our experience was great. They worked hard and were very careful with our belongings. We highly recommend them to anyone.
It was our pleasure working with you!

4/29/2015reviewing: Strong Arm Movers
The guys were great. The truck was parked at the opposite end of the apartment complex and they were more than willing to walk the distance and brainstorm solutions on how to get everything in as quickly as possible. They worked hard the entire time and were great at putting things where I needed them in a timely fashion.

The loaders turned up on time and got straight to work. They had not brought the hand truck that we had requested, but they still got everything loaded into the containers in the time we had allowed for. They were very careful handling the furniture etc. I would recommend them.
Thanks Jonathan, our apologies regarding the dolly. Glad we were able to get everything completed in the allotted time frame.

4/24/2015reviewing: AJ's Affordable Movers
We used AJ's for unloading our moving truck only. The guys were slightly late but we received a phone call from Jill - communication was wonderful. The two guys were wonderful - feel bad I don't recall their names. But they couldn't do enough to make sure they were making our unloading as easy as possible. Would definitely recommend and would definitely use them again!
Thank you Michelle for the great review. Frank and Dalton were your guys. And yes they are great! We wish you the best with your new home. Look foward to hearing from you in the future.

The guys were great! On time, professional, very nice, and they worked quickly. We were very happy with them! Thanks again for making our move easier!
I've already recommeded them to several people. I was very impressed with their hard work and professionalism. They packed my POD for storage and I have no doubt that my belongings will be return undamaged. Excellent packing job! Exceeded my expectations.
