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
Average helper rating is 4.7 out of 5.
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.

John and his helper Doug were such hard workers. It was 100 degrees outside and they worked hard for 4 hours. He didn't think all our stuff would fit in a 16 ft Penske so I threw away some stuff and he made magic happen and fit it all like a thousand piece puzzle! I also arrived in Colorado with nothing out of place! Best work ever and would use them again. Worth every penny!

Scott and his crew were late due to a last minute substitution of a team member, no fault of their's. They handled all of our possessions with the utmost care. Their packing of our PODs was exceptional. We have a lot of stuff. They stayed pas our estimated time and ensured that the loading was done completely. Excellent job guys.

Movers were punctual, respectful, hardworking, and conscientious. They worked continuously and stayed an extra hour. I highly recommend their services. They helped make a stressful day less tense. We would most definitely use their services, again.
The guys were on time, they worked very hard, they were careful, polite and I would use them again. Highly recommend!
We thank you for such a positive review. When you have customers as wonderful as your family, it makes our job a lot easier.

the workers were very good with the moving of items, there conduct was exemplary, the company failed to provide the item that was requested to facilitate the move (hand dolly)
Stanley, thanks for your kind words about the service you've received and the excellent review but the reality is we don't provide hand dollies without an additional charge upon request which you didn't do or pay for. Rick K. owner

Your men did a great job! They took time to verify instructions before touching anything. They were very efficient and capable to handle the job. Thank you for such great service.
The movers were prompt, courteous, and very helpful. They went above and beyond to help us with our somewhat complicated move. We are very happy with all aspects of their service and would definitely use them again!

They did an excellent job. It only took them an hour to get everything out of the box truck. They even set up my bed for me. Very professional and I highly recommend them.
Thank you Haylee!

8/3/2015reviewing: JJ's Moving
I would highly recommend JJ's Moving. The 3 young men showed up on time (actually a few minutes early) and were eager to start the job. The truck was late, it was raining but it did not deter these young men from doing a great job. They were very polite, and handled my belongings as if they were their own. I would definitely use them in the future if the need should arise.
Grunts on demand went over and above, very professional, and pleasant. They were on time, they worked hard, and I would recommend to anyone.
You guys were great
~ Grunts on Demand
They were a little late, but that was because of traffic, and they called in route to let me know. They were very prepared and worked hard, were respectful of both my belongings and my home. I would definitely hire them again for a move, they did a better job than my regular moving company.
Thanks Suzanne, loved seeing your gorgeous paintings. You are a true professional don't ever think otherwise.

7/11/2015reviewing: Take A Load Off
Professional, courteous and hard working. My son and I had loaded the 16ft truck so we know how much work was involved. Frankie's team did it without a hitch and with a friendly attitude. I would, without any reservations, recommend them to anyone looking for moving help
Lucas, who is the owner of the company, and his right hand man Kevin came to help us and did a fantastic job! They were polite, timely, extremely helpful, caring and went above and beyond for us in a time of great need. Moving is hard enough. Do yourself a favor and book 5 Star to help you. ..you won't be sorry you did! Thanks again!
