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.

They were amazing in every way. They worked very hard and fast. They were very careful with everything and very patient with our thoughts on where things needed to go. Chaz runs a great group of guys.

Very helpful! Had a few things left to pack up when they arrived and they accommodated my procrastination and worked around me as I finished up. This was greatly appreciated and helped with the moving day stress
8/28/2015reviewing: Take A Load Off
These guys are great! They were very professional, did a terrific job packing the moving truck and no damage when we unpacked the truck at the destination. I'd highly recommend them.
6/27/2015reviewing: Prestige Moving
These guys were awesome. Coordinated with us ahead of time to check on our arrival, which allowed them to start 15 minures early. They unloaded our truck quickly and efficiently, and finished the job early. Everything was brought in safely. Nice guys, and very helpful. Highly recommend them.
These guys are beyond great! They were carefull with the furniture, careful with walls and floors and with my dog! Incredibly hard workers! They are excellent!!! Professional and easy to work with.
7/20/2015reviewing: Tri-County Movers
They were on time, adequately prepared for the task at hand and they didn't stop until everything was done. They handled all my possessions much better than I thought they would and took the time to wrap antique photos so they would not get damaged in transit. They disassembled all my tables so they could be packed better. I would definitely use them again.
6/12/2015reviewing: Moving In Motion
Great guys--friendly, accommodating, ready to work. They communicated well the day of, letting me know when they would arrive. I was pleased overall. Moving in Motion provided great workers and good service with a small-company feel.
Thanks Aaron, we value your business and feedback! Glad we can satisfy you and we are always here for you when you need us. Best wishes! All of us at Moving in Motion.

These guys did a great job. The 4 man crew was on time and prepared. They were very respectful and helpful and completed all we needed done within the time allotted. We will call them again if we need to move.
~ Nick's Labor Service
They were great. They showed up early, handled our stuff well, and finished everything ahead of schedule. They brought all the equipment needed for the job and worked tirelessly, despite the heat and the 3 flights of stairs. I'd recommend them to anyone!
6/17/2015reviewing: Pack Smart
David Crum's crew, Bill and another young man were amazing. They worked quickly, carefully, and didn't use an extra inch of space in the freight trailer that wasn't absolutely needed. Great skill by Bill who placed the items clear to the ceiling. I could not be more pleased. They made a stressful day a happy one. I hope they are paid well as they certainly deserve it.
6/5/2015reviewing: O'Shae & Sons Movers
Excellent service. The gentleman that appears to be the owner is very experienced. We drove across country after they packed the truck. Even with the windy roads in Sedona. Once we got to our destination everything was still perfectly in place.
6/30/2015reviewing: Move Pros LLC
They wound up coming early and got everything done really quickly they didn't try to drag out the time. They had their own dolly and handled me being on the third floor very well. I will probably use the company again when I move into my next place.
7/31/2015reviewing: Verlys Pro Moving Labor
Josh and Adam were excellent. They were professional, courteous, and hard working. The 26' foot rental truck was carefully packed floor to ceiling with no spare room which along with sparing me the back breaking labor was worth every $ spent on hiring them.
Thank you Paul for the great review on the movers we provided to you on the day of your move. Yes they are two of the great movers we have along with many others on our staff. We are pleased you had a 5 star moving exp and a stress free move. Glad we saved your back so you can sit back and relax. If you need our services in the future just give us a call anytime Paul. Thank you again for your business!

On time and called to let us know on their way. Extremely considerate of house and walls. Ricky&Willie were great and very efficient with their time. Very personable as well, definitely would recommend.
7/3/2015reviewing: A MOVE Ahead movers
Tony & crew were wonderful! They were on time & so efficient they finished in no time & were able to help me with some things inside the house which I appreciated so much since I am in my 60s & handicapped and my husband is in a nursing home/rehabilitative center. I almost wish I was not moving out of state because I would hire them for anything I needed done. I highly recommend them!!
8/21/2015reviewing: Zooming Moving LLC
The movers showed up on time, were very respectful and hard working. They brought extra rope and dollies even though I didn't ask. Can't say enough good things about the service I received. Planning to use them to unpack my pods in two weeks.
