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.

Great packers and worked fast. We only had them for 2 hours and they got so much more done than I expected. Friendly, respectful too. I will use them again for my next move.

The two workers were very efficient and very jovial. The service they provided was definitely worth its weight in gold. My experience was very satisfying and I will be looking to use the service again in the future with no reservations about this helpful web site.

They were on time even though it was last minute call to take their help. They were prepared well. I gave them instructions and they followed it. Their hard work in moving all stuff to second floor in 100 degree was admirable. I will recommend them.

These guys were great. Friendly, competent, fast, with good advice on how to best load the container. They were careful with our stuff and also careful not to damage the walls while moving heavy stuff. Highly recommended.
The two men were on time, they were prepared, they worked hard and they were very respectful of my property and goods. Yes, I would use them again! This job was done thru 115 degree heat.. They never complained about it.

On time, no problems. Did not provide any equipment. Worked well with direction. Were careful with my property. Were a little expensive compared to other labor services in the area.
If we had brought equipment, we would have brought carts. But we knew the facility already provides them hence the reason not bringing any. As far as your concern with our price compared to others, we were on time, had no problems, worked well with direction, were careful with your property, had no damages whatsoever, loaded your belongings into storage safely and got it done better & faster than the others would have. I guess it comes down to you get what you pay for. Thank you for choosing us!

Two of the three arrived on time. The third was a new guy. They worked hard and finished on time. It was about 95 degrees and we had a 26 footer and a trailer. I would like to have these guys to move me again when needed.

These young men were a pleasure to have around!!! They were friendly, professional and very careful with their work. We could not believe how much they accomplished in two hours and how much they packed in the POD!! We would DEFINITELY recommend them. We will be hiring them to unload the POD at our new home. Thank you for such a great experience.

I was very flexible on the time I needed them to come, so we did not agree on a hard and fast arrival time. They were prepared. They worked the entire time until the job was done. They were very courteous and respectful of my property. Everything ended up where I needed it. They worked very quickly. I would call them again.

Workers showed up on time. Hard working and very patient. Friendly despite the challenges of working with heavy furniture and stairs! Worked around other workers who were performing other maintenance without even one complaint about the conditions. Would recommend to anyone
6/10/2015reviewing: Pack and Go Moving
The guys were excellent. They showed up on time (even a little early after checking to make sure that would be ok by me). They were polite, treated my stuff with respect, and moved very quickly to make sure the job was done quickly. I definitely recommend them to anyone that is moving in this area.
The only problem I had was they arrived almost two hours late. They had an eta of 3 to 5 pm Arrived 6:45 pm. They did call and advised they would be late. Once they got got here they did a really good job. They were fast and efficient and even put my office furniture together. I was pleased with thier service.
7/20/2015reviewing: Good Guy Movers
The crew showed up on time, and sent an extra person as well (for no extra charge). They got the job done (disassembling and moving furniture and boxes from a 4 Bedroom home into a PODS unit) faster than estimated, and could not have been more of a pleasure to work with.

Ron and Ryan were two of the hardest working people I have met. On a hot day, for five hours, they were non stop dynamos. Extremely personable and professional, Ron and Ryan were a perfect fit for our move.

We were very impressed with how the helpers made good use of the space in our moving pod. We were over all pleased with the helpers and will probably use them again.
6/9/2015reviewing: 5-STAR MOVING
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.
