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

Service is Guaranteed
Besides complimentary insurance, if the job doesn't go right we'll reimburse you up to the amount you paid through HireAHelper, up to $1k, as per our Service Guarantee.
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.

8/22/2015reviewing: Up And Coming Moving And Labor
They did a good job helping me move all my stuff from the container to the new 9th floor apartment. It took longer than I hoped, but that was my fault for not booking the freight elevator for the right time frame, so that we had to make countless trips using the normal elevators. Their timing was flexible and they stayed til the job was done.

They arrived on time and were very efficient and professional. They brought dollys specific to furniture and loaded the truck specifically for our 1500 mile trip. Yes, I would recommend them!
9/26/2015reviewing: Elite Movers
Chris & Jason did a great job packing my storage container. The container ended up not being large enough for all of my things, but not because of the movers. They could not have packed one more thing in there! I was impressed. They were polite, friendly, careful, efficient and thorough. I would recommend Elite Movers to anyone!

Joel, Christian, and Havre did a great job. They had been told it was an unload which was incorrect. But they got right to work and loaded everything up in two hours. I recommend them highly.

They arrived during the time they said they would be there and got to work right away. They were one man short but still worked to get the job done on time. They packed up the moving truck for us and when we went to unload the truck nothing had shifted and everything arrived intact. Would highly recommend them!
