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.

Very good communication. Didn't have any surprises. The movers worked hard. Took care of my possessions as if they were there own. They recognized there was limited space in the container and packed it very carefully, taking advantage of every inch and pack it so when moved the items wouldn't shift.

They were on time. They were prepared. They worked hard. They were respectful of my new carpet and my belongings. They knew how to efficiently pack a truck. They had a pleasant attitude. I would use them again.
7/12/2015reviewing: Speed Loaders
Yes, they arrived on time. They were more than prepared for the job. This job was not your normal move, some very heavy and fragile objects all moved perfectly. Their care with my property and goods was first class. Will use them in the future without a second thought, and will refer them to friends. AAA+++
We are striving to have all of our customer feel this way. At Speed Loaders, we are continuously tweeking our service. We are not perfect. Then again, who is. We use proven moving labor methods to load a truck/container. We want you to come back. Thanks

8/14/2015reviewing: Midnight Hour Moving
proper notification about arrival time. the 2 helpers, Michael & Steven, worked tirelessly and stayed until the job was finished. Careful transportation of our appliances and furniture and an excellent job in packing the trailer as dense as possible. Overtime was billed by the quarter hour. We are very satisfied and highly recommend them.
8/13/2015reviewing: The Works Services
It seemed like they were in and out fast. But everything was handled brilliantly. They even had their own equipment. They didn't break, damage, or scratch anything. Very professional. Definitely will use them again!

Hurt my back moving, so called hired them the day of the move. They were very friendly, courteous, and handled our contents with care. My only complain is that I hired 3, but only 2 arrived. I assume I paid for the third person that I did not get. However, the 2 of them work non-stop and completed the job on time and quickly. Great job!

Arrived on time. Friendly, courteous and finished the job quickly. Did a wonderful job packing the pod and brought supplies in case they were needed. Not being from the area I was a little nervous hiring help on line but I am glad I did. I would hire them again.

These men did great work. They hauled all of our furniture, one piece after the next, navigating some tricky stairs, doors, and corners. Thank you!

They were overly helpful and very understanding when I had to make them wait to start. They continually told me that I shouldn't be apologizing so much. They moved all the items quickly and with great care. I couldn't have asked for better help!!!! I would use them again and again!!!

Crothers Brothers did a GREAT JOB!! Not only were they on time, they showed up a few minutes early. They did call first just to make sure that was OK! They were very prepared for the job and got right to work. They worked very hard and were very respectful of my belongings. Both guys were very nice and friendly and I would absolutely use them again!!
Ashleigh, we spend hours upon hours at the office making sure each and every day is planned out in a way that insures our employees arrive at their destination on time. We believe that a competitive team spirit leads to greater productivity(quicker more efficient moves) and happier employees(being nice and friendly). We also preach safety and caution when handling all items because we want to handle each piece as if it were our own. Thank you and have a wonderful day.

I had a wonderful experience with Helpful Movers! They were right on time, prepared, and ready to help me in whatever way I needed. They took great care with my things and worked very hard to make sure everything was accomplished in a timely manner. Plus, their lively personalities made the whole moving process so much more fun. Would definitely recommend them to others!
S&L was very punctual and showed up right on the hour. They were speedy and paid attention to where everything was supposed to go. I would definitely use them again!
Thank you Erayna. Thank you very much!
