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.

Bob & Alex were our movers; they were on time, very efficient, thoughtful and hard working. I am using them again, several more times! I am very happy that I found Castle Express Moving. I would recommend them to my family and friends. I have used other movers in the past and I have not had the best experiences all the time; some were good, some were horrible but, these guys were the best!

Had 4 guys to help my mom move into her new apartment. They showed up 10 minutes early and worked hard in the heat to get it all moved quickly. All 4 guys were very nice and absolutely no damage to anything. Will absolutely use them anytime we need movers and will recommend them to anyone.

On time, cordial, prepared, willing to move big items quickly but very safely, respectful and careful, would use them again. Even highly friendly with my 93 year old father, who appreciated it.
I have said it before I am blessed with employees that care about their job and the people whom they are working for. We are there for you and try to make moving a little less stress-free. Thank you for yet another perfect review.

Jay & his helper did a great job in moving my stuff from a storage unit to my new home. My storage unit was not organized from the first move & I told them to leave all the loose items, but the took the time and brought it all in one trip. This move went so smooth! I was impresssed! Would definitely recommend & use them again!
Thank you Anthony! It was a pleasure to work with you.

Fast, courteous, efficient and took care of things like they were theirs. Actually showed up slightly early. Will try to get the same crew back for our next move in a few months.
4/9/2015reviewing: Witmer's Moving and More
They did a good job. I just wish I could have afforded more hours. The job did not get completed in the hours I allotted. They did a fantastic job of fitting as much as possible in one pod. The lead helper was extremely experienced in what to load and where to make the best use of the allotted time. I learned a few things from this move that i will be well prepared for for the next one.
Thank you. We did packing one day for you two hours and then loaded the POD full in the time you had for us the next day and got all the bigger furniture in that one for you. You were getting another pod a couple days later and I would have gladly made arrangements to come back and load one also if you had wanted. Thanks again
