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?

The guys were great. They showed up on time and suggested a better way to pack so that we might not need the extra container. We ended up needing it anyway but it was nice of them to try to help us save some money.
Thank you Zack!

The two young men showed up on time and did a great job of loading and securing the truck. I wish I could have the same two to unload the truck. Thanks Charles and Trey. Mr. Greg Jones Jr

Awesome team of guys! They were a few minutes late, but called to let me know- so no big deal. They did an amazing job loading our 3 bedroom house into 2 moving trucks. They were respectful, courteous, hard workers, and tremendously helpful. I would cheerfully recommend this company to anyone who wants to make their move so much easier!
On time, got right to work, did everything We asked of them. They were very respectful of property and didn't do any damage to belongings or house. I would use them again.

From start to finish, they did a great job. Brian was very customer service focused and the two men that were assigned to our job did a wonderful job. They were on time, were focused on doing the job right. We will use them again and would recommend this company for sure.
5/3/2015reviewing: A Plus Moving
I have to say I was a bit uneasy with the company leading up to the move as it was difficult for me to confirm the time - however once it was confirmed they showed up on time and did an incredible job. They took great care of my belongings and house. They were efficient, hard working and well equipped. I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking to move.
They were right on time and did what I requested since I was concerned that the POD was might not be large enough to fit what was in our storage. They were truly amazing in planning the loading of the furnitures. I was not too disappointed when they told me that everything will not fit. They tried their best. Thanks a lot guys! Lorna S.

They were fast and handled the stairs admirably. The truck was packed very well. I wish I had allowed another hour for unpacking. As it was, I only had time for them to put everything in the living room. They managed to navigate the truck very well for loading and unloading. I would use them again - but plan for an extra hour!
Thank you Lisa for the work !

Steve and Mike were very professional and courteous. They communicated well with us and worked very diligently. This was one of the best moving experiences I have ever had. Thank you
4/18/2015reviewing: Strong Arm Movers
they arrived on time and they finished the job earlier than planned, which worked out great for me so that I was able to hit the road earlier. They were prepared for the job by bringing two dollies for boxes and one furniture dolly. I'd definitely recommend them for the same type of job, which was taking the furniture from an apartment and loading to a truck.
5/1/2015reviewing: Moving With Caution & Care
Kenny and Josh were awesome. They were able to get to my place earlier than expected. There was a change in my moving situation between booking them and them showing up and they just took it in stride. They packed my belongings carefully and effectively, no broken items at all. I will definitely be using them again when I move into my final location.

On time, pleasant, and hard working. Deducting one star because something was broken, but partially my fault for not designating fragile. I would recommend them though, big help on the move and very good price. Thank you!
6/2/2015reviewing: Portland Movers Ready
They did a wonderful job. Both movers were friendly, helpful and took great care with my things. They were unavoidably late due to a major traffic accident on the freeway, but called to tell me and gave me a new arrival time. I would definitely use them again.

Men were great. Very helpful and friendly. Wanted to take them with us to unload. These are two very hard workers. Very pleased.
We're glad to have been in the position to help you and the family. Travel safely to Florida, and thank you for your business.

They were on time, prepared for the job, they worked hard and asked where stuff should go, they were repectful and even repared one of our pieces of furniture.
Movers were on time, prepared, worked efficiently and got the pack-rat container loaded faster than I expected. They were friendly, courteous and respectful of our "stuff." I would definitely use them again, and recommend them to everyone I know that needs to move a household or apartment. Thanks to Drew, and Juan for a great job!
