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.

Great service but did not notify me that if I requested and am charged for more hours from the moving company and the moving company used less of the alotted hours requested , I would not be refunded. Kinda a scam with S and L Express moving. But they did a good job .... And I argued enough to get my refund ;) !!!
Thanks for the review Steve. As far as the time scheduled, keep in mind that if you reserve a company for 4 hours, the time is allocated to you and no one else can be booked in your slot. That's why there is no refund with S&L. Hire-A-Helper does a great job estimating how long a job will take and they base that on the information that you provide when you place the order.

My move went smoothly and very quick. Great communication before the moving date. The movers showed up on time, very professional, and got the job done quickly. I had many things to disassemble and reassembling, which they had no problem helping with that. Great company would highly recommend them and will definitely use them on my next move.

I used Liberty Movers to pack my truck. Two young college bound guys did the job in 3 hours. They were on time, kind, and professional. I only suggest they come more equipped with furniture carrying equipment to protect their backs. I do recommend them to anyone.

We were so appreciative of the young men from Family Movers. My husband's mother had just passed away and they were helping us move some items out of the house. They were very respectful and hard working. They were willing to do any kind of job needed and were competitively priced. We will definitely call them again to help with the next job.

I have moved over 20 times in the last 10yrs. These guys were by far some of the best helpers I have used. They were on time and finished up faster than any other people I have used. Friendly, polite and hard workers. I will be using them again when I move into my house soon. They took real good care of my property as well.
