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

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.

The guys showed up a little ahead of schedule and knocked out the job packing my pod in 2 hours. They made dealing with 2 flights of stairs look effortless. I couldn't ask for anything more. Fantastic job!
8/17/2015reviewing: Verlys Pro Moving Labor
The guys were on time and worked extremely hard in hot and humid weather. They were respectful of our belongings and me as the owner. I have them scheduled in two weeks for the "move in" and I'm very confident that will go smoothly also.

Don't look any further! They were efficient and professional. Eric is well organized and really knew how to make the most of the time. Reasonable price for a "hybrid" move where we had most of our belongings packed and they loaded the truck.

Punctual, very friendly, professional, and efficient. They take care of the furniture as if its their own. I am very happy of their work. I will highly recommend them to anyone who needs them.

I hired this company knowing nothing about them. 3 guys for 3 hours. They were absolutely amazing! I strongly recommend them! They were very professional, took great care of my belongings and I felt immediately comfortable with all of them so I could just leave them to do their job. Hire them.

Tim and Travis were excellent in all regards. They were very careful moving things in so as not to damage them. Tim went out of his way to help us set up some of the more complicated furniture pieces that we would have struggled with, and to make suggestions where minor parts would protect the furniture better. I would use them again when the need arises.
Thank you Linda!

They were prepared for the job and worked hard. They were respectful of my property and goods. Rudi said at the end, all you need to do is sign and a tip. Didn't like being asked for a tip. I was going to give them one anyway...
What I told you was, all you need to do is to sign here and that is it, You asked me WHAT? I replied to you again: that is all. I never asked for a tip. You know your comment make us look very bad to future possible costumers. Thank you

8/22/2015reviewing: Handy Dandy Moving Service
The service was excellent!! I used Handy Dandy movers and they sent Alex and CJ who were absolutely wonderful. They didn't milk the clock, I had 5 rooms full of heavy furniture and they moved it in 2 1/2 hours fast and secured it in the Pods. I was totally pleased they were on time, handled my furniture with care. I will use them again.
6/9/2015reviewing: Smart Move
They arrived early and stayed longer than I had scheduled. They also moved around my living room furniture a few times before I settled on one setting, which was nice of them. They didn't just dump my stuff in my apartment, they actually placed it where I wanted it. They were kind and considerate throughout the process. I would highly recommend them!

8/27/2015reviewing: All Around Movers
Jeremy and Steven did an amazing job! They worked diligently in spite of the heat and humidity and did a great job packing the truck. We had only one piece of furniture damaged, most likely because we used our own blankets and not mover-quality blankets. I would definitely recommend this company.

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.
