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.

Evan was a miracle worker for me. I had to change my date for the unloading of my POD and I was stressed out! Without help I would have been up a creek without a paddle!! Evan assured me he would help no matter what and he did just that. He was professional, calm and effeciient with his communication and his work. Thank you Evan, I give you a 10 out of 5 Joni

They did a great job. They were on time and helped me stay at 2 hours. They were cognizant about what had to be loaded in the pod by priority. I had too much stuff so some had to be left out so we prioritized. They did work hard and quick. I thought they were a great price but, the next day my dad found 2 guys for 2 hours for $135 on Craigslist. They were 5 hours late though! Thank You.
The guys were punctual and very courteous. They did a great job! Not one bump or scratch. Very polite and hard working!!!! This was my second time using them. Thank you Trent & Sam!!!
Thank you Jennesa.

The gentlemen from Lucky Loaders Moving were prompt, professional, and extremely hard working. I highly recommend their service to others in need of moving help.
We didn't know what to expect, but our movers were great! They were prompt, worked extremely hard, and were very careful with our furniture. We are very happy with the service and will use them again on our next move.

ON Time and ready to work! Yosio and his team were extremely profressional and helpful! They were patient with me when I wasn't sure where I wanted things placed in the new home. They even hauled away some of the trash and boxes at the end! Nothing but a good move experience!
Evan and his crew were great. They unloaded two 16-ft containers for us and were extremely careful with our items. Friendly, timely and personable. We would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs heavy lifting to be done. They are the only team that would move our baby grand piano. Under Evan's capable direction, they accomplished this with no damage to the piano.

Great job from Andre and team! They were on time, courteous and pleasure to have around. They were efficient and took time to listen to us as well. Will definitely use again.
They were exactly on time. They worked quickly. Very courteous, very careful about loading. Arrived at my destination with NO breakage. It was bumpy and hilly. Nothing shifted. I would use them again.

Moved form the third floor to the third floor, guys worked hard and quickly. They arrived in the window they said they would, and were prepared with blankets and straps, which was great since Uhaul was unable to fulfill my request for blankets. Definitely would use them again.

They were perfect on time and yes they were prepared for the job. They did work very hard and prompt. I found them very cooperative, respectful to the property and goods however I found my child gate missing (except for that all other were intact). Yes I would use them next time.
