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.

6/4/2015reviewing: Portland Movers Ready
Both men were professional, arrived on time and loaded EVERYTHING in a timely manner. I would most certainly use your movers again and will keep your information as a friend of mine has her house up for sale in Portland and if she needs movers I already told her I have someone who can do the job.
They arrived on time and did a great job in moving and packing the items in my trailer. Fast, friendly and did a great job. I highly recommend Metromovers as I would certainly use them again.
Thanks, Leo! Josh and Kevin were at your service. I'm glad we were able to accommodate your changing schedule and work you into our busy Summer schedule. Thanks for keeping METROMOVERS #1 ON HIREAHELPER with another 5 STAR REVIEW!!!

Very professional, polite, careful, and on time. Above expectations. They whacked one piece of furniture but it was an awkward piece and understandable. Only con is they didn't mention that this happened. But I would certainly use them again.
Mike, thank you so much for the 5 STAR RATING even after you noticed and issue with an item. Our intentions are never to go with out mentioning any damage and if it is something you would like to contact us about, please don't hesitate. Thanks again.

They should up 15 minutes early. They had everything they needed to complete the job quickly and efficiently. They took great care of my property and were helpful in putting things in their correct place. I would definitely use them again!

I highly recommend this company!! The two gentlemen were nice, professional and thorough. Our job ran 3 1/2 hours over because I didn't realize how much space a POD actually has in it. Not cheap but definitely worth it!! Great job Gentlemen!!
4/26/2015reviewing: Washington Moving Labor Services
I think their names were Andrew and Brett. They were fantastic. They were on time and they handled everything. They even stuck to my time schedule. I couldn't ask for more help. They were pleasant and went the extra mile even helping me get the rental truck back to U-Haul. I would adopt these guys in a minute that's how great they were! I hope that I can use them again.

We hired the crew to assist my retired parents in unloading their moving truck. The crew was fast and courteous, showed up on time and finished early. Nothing got damaged or broken and they were respectful and patient with my parents who couldn't make up their minds as to where to place the furniture. If I needed help in this area again, I would rehire this company.
Amanda, we're here to please. Thanks for calling on us.

Words can't really explain how courteous and helpful these guys were! I saw a 2 hr job at the least but they were done in 1.30 minutes. I will definitely use them again. They were careful and treated my belongs as if they were their own.
The crew showed up ready to move us and do what it took. They were pleasant through out a very long day, polite and attentive. The service was invaluable for a very short notice move. With thanks!!

They were not on time due to a missed ferry, but I had flexibility to accommodate. Great service, worked hard, and very respectful of me and my property. Kedrick is a master of his craft! Money well spent for a professional loading of a PackRat container.
I ASKED FOR 3 HELPERS, BUT 1 CALLED IN SICK. THE 2 GUYS WERE A LITTLE LATE, BUT THEY HAD ALL THE EQUIPMENT, AND DID A GREAT JOB. IT WAS EXTREMELY HOT THAT DAY BUT THE GUYS DIDN'T SLOW DOWN AT ALL. I WOULD RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE AND I AM USING THEM AGAIN TOMORROW TO UNLOAD MY SECOND POD.
4/19/2015reviewing: All Around Movers
Mix up on the schedule, but after they arrived they did a good job. I would use them again.
Sorry about the schedule but pleased to hear that you are happy and pleased over all.
