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

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.

The two young men who came out to help us were excellent. They were quick and efficient, and worked steadily. They were very polite and respectful in dealing with us. I would definitely use them again.
Blaine and Tom arrived on time and had all that they needed to get the job done. They were tenacious but careful and worked with me to accomplish the goal of packing everything into the container. I'm very please with the work they did. ++
Highly professional and incredibly hard working. Jeff and George hussled the whole time and stayed even a little past the scheduled time to get everything done. Wouldn't use any other company, highly recommended!

We hired 2 movers for 3 hours. They sent 3 movers and were done in 1.5 hours! They called a few hours before and asked to come early. We agreed. They were extremely professional and treated our belongings as if they were theirs. I highly recommend these guys and would definitely use them again!
Thank you Jessica!

They were great.. my first company i booked cancelled on me last minute so My Moving People came to my rescue. They were very professional and took great care with all my items. They also were very patient with how i wanted the items unloaded and placed in the storage unit. Most importantly they showed genuine concern for me. I would definitely recommend this company.

Prompt, courteous, cautious, and hard working, Lucas and his assistant were much better than I dared hope. My moving job entailed hoisting several expensive pieces of furniture to an upper floor, and they treated them very carefully. I will definitely use 5-Star Moving again.
You had a lovely home, thanks Kent

Two very hard workers at a reasonable price. Arrived on time, stayed a couple minutes overtime without charge. They moved a lot of very heavy office furniture and boxes quite efficiently. I was more than satisfied.
4/15/2015reviewing: Tri-City Movers
They arrived as scheduled, they had equipment to facilitate getting the job done, they worked very hard and got most of my belongings fitted into a 16 foot cube. They treated my property with care, and I would definitely use them again.
Thank you for the review Laureli. We value your input and appreciate your comments. Tri-City Movers wishes you the best in your new home.

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.
The two movers from Zooming were very professional, friendly, and fast! They didn't milk the clock, as I've experienced with other movers, and actually arrived earlier than our start time. I booked the two hour window for my one bedroom apartment and we wrapped up with time to spare. I'd absolutely use this company again!
Two guys loaded a sixteen foot Pack Rat in three hours. They moved everything out of the house with skill, wrapped what needed to be wrapped and used every available space in the shipping container. No complaints.
They were on time ,they was well prepared for the job and they were hard workers. They respected my property and asked where to place my goods . Yes I would hire them again :) Very very happy with a job well done.
Thank you and god bless

They were a tiny bit late, but were prepared to work and worked hard. They took very good care of our property and goods. They were cheerful and had good attitudes, even though they worked in light rain and cool temperatures. They did an excellent job of packing our belongings into the truck. We made a long-distance move with no damage to our belongings. We would definitely use them again.
