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.

Arrived on time, worked very diligently to load storage unit to full capacity while ensuring all items were safely and properly stored. Overall I was very satisfied with service provided.

My mother and best friend supervised the unpacking of the pod and furniture placement. These are two demanding women and they raved about these men; how hard they worked, did everything they were asked to do perfectly and with great good humor. These two are so hard to please, and they couldn't say enough great things about the job they did.
6/4/2015reviewing: Dyson's Movers
The guys were on time and did a good job emptying my container. The only negative was that they did not bring any tools with them--hand trucks, carts, etc. Things would have gone faster if they had their own.

2nd time using S&L and they did a great job. On time arrival at the old apartment, loaded everything up and followed to the new apartment. Worked hard and efficiently on the unloading, had everything wrapped up with half the elevator reservation remaining. Thanks guys!
THANK YOU JONATHAN... We appreciate your graciousness and your business.. Thanks for the awesome rating...

7/13/2015reviewing: Lucky Loaders Moving
The helpers arrived two hours late. Apparently my original helpers got pulled over on the way to my house, and the driver had a suspended license, so they had to send me new guys. Eric did keep me in the loop about the timing though. Hireahelper refunded me %5 for each hour they were late. Besides that issue, the helpers were great! Fast, professional, and careful.
6/20/2015reviewing: Thunder Movers
They arrived on time, were very polite and gracious, and had all my goods loaded in the 16 ft container within 2 hrs. Gus and T. were excellent! We would definitely hire them again.
7/25/2015reviewing: Acme Moving Labor
They arrived on time and were well prepared. They were personable and professional and made sure to handle my items with the utmost care. I would definitely use them again.
7/23/2015reviewing: Strong Arm Movers
ON Time and ready to work! Yosio and his team were extremely profressional and helpful! They were patient with me when I wasn't sure where I wanted things placed in the new home. They even hauled away some of the trash and boxes at the end! Nothing but a good move experience!
5/8/2015reviewing: Sebastian Moving
The men got to our house on time and started to work right away. They never stopped until the job was done. They took great care of our things. The owners of the company were just as caring and respectful as anyone I have ever dealt with. Yes, I would recommend Sebastian Moving to anyone needing to move local or long distance.
7/9/2015reviewing: Quality 1 Movers, LLC
They arrived on time, as scheduled. The movers were careful and did not damage anything. They worked hard and followed instructions and requests. They were also courteous and respectful. I would use this crew again.
6/1/2015reviewing: The Box Moving Company
Excellent moving company!!! Timely, professional, and we're especially awesome considering I only had to ask them once to mind the doors because of my cat. My friends aren't that respectful haha! I have already recommended them to two people who are planning to use them for their move... Excellent guys!!!
7/25/2015reviewing: Affordable Reliable Movers
Good communication with the owner/boss. Movers got things done, were "on time" as in the range I was given, they were prepared as they brought their muscles but no moving straps or anything, they worked pretty hard (maybe not killed themselves), very respectful and good guys, and yes, I'd use them again.

These guys were courteous and helpful. Not on time but let me know that. So that was not a problem. They were hard workers I would use them again or recommend them to others.
7/30/2015reviewing: Castle Express Moving
Great move today thanks to Bobby and Alex! It was mighty humid, but they did a great job carefully moving all of my belongings into a POD, which involved 3 flights of stairs. Thanks again!
7/31/2015reviewing: Masters Moving
Masters Moving guys were great! On time and respectful of people and all the goods that were being moved. They were strong and hard workers. Their vision of how to pack the POD was magic. So many things were loaded and packed well. I am so happy to have been connected to their services and would use them again and refer others to them. Thanks!
6/24/2015reviewing: Move Easy LLC
The guys were great and really helpful. However, the listing stated the would have wrap, dolly, and moving blankets and they did not. We had to scramble to find these things after they arrived.
5/28/2015reviewing: Minutemen Haulers
These guys were great. They were on time, kept me updated during the day prior to their arrival. They were prepared, worked VERY hard, and were very respectful of our property. They even repositioned items I'd already loaded and provided me with advice on finishing up our loading. Not only would I use them again I hope to be able to in a couple of months.

Thank you very much for the review.

Arrived on time and ready to work. They brought their own dollies (one per worker) and unloaded our moving van quickly with no damage to anything. I highly recommend these guys and will use them again for our next move.
