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.
Recent Customer Reviews:
The average service provider rating is 4.7 stars out of 5.0 after 45,995 customer reviews.
My scheduled service was delayed due to unexpected delays at the job prior to mine. However, S&L kept me well informed of the delay and this was not an big issue for me. They actually sent out 4 movers instead of 2 to make up for any delay. The 4 men worked extremely efficiently, professionally, and courteously. I was really impressed with the overall service and would recommend them again.

Lucas is very accommodating. He and his assistant were good about wrapping up my wood and leather furniture so it doesn't get scratched. I'm glad I used them to pack my pod because they were able to get so much more in it by knowing how to fill it to the top. This is the second move where I've used 5 Star Moving and Lucas and I'd use them again. Mel

My Philly Movers were fantastic. They arrived a little early, they came in and chatted with me about what we wanted done and then got right to work. They worked quickly, efficiently and were very careful of all our things. I would definitely use them again.
Our movers did a wonderful job and finished an hour ahead of schedule. They know how to pack efficiently and optimize space while loading. We were very impressed by their demeanor. They were curteous and very polite as well. We highly recommend Lonnie, Fae, CJ and Michael!

Extremely pleased with the job Tony and Mark did for my move. They showed up on time, were quick and knowledgeable about the best ways to move furniture and how to safely load the truck. Totally worth the cost, I'll never move myself again, they made it easy.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review Ian. We look forward to assisting you when it comes time to empty that storage unit!

8/19/2015reviewing: Masters Moving
Although they were a bit late and hadn't called ahead to say they were running late, once they got there, they got to work right away and worked as hard as can be. They were very easy to work with and did not shy away from tackling any part of the job. We really appreciated their help and would use them again.
6/7/2015reviewing: Q's Moving Corp
The crew from Q's was on time, stayed late, and worked hard the whole time they were there. They took just 2 brief breaks over 5.5 hours. (They could have worked more quickly, but we were still packing.) The workers behaved professionally. I highly recommend this company.
Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us Gina! We truly value the time you took to do so. We're very happy to hear you were satisfied with our services and our crew. Feel free to book us again for future services. Thank you for choosing Q's!
