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 workers came on time and worked efficiently. They had my entire studio apartment packed into a portable shipping container in 1 hour. I would recommend them!
7/26/2015reviewing: Anytime Movers LLC.
especially impressed given I made the request close to midnight and by 10AM the team of 3 were ready to go. Timing was critical to be ready for an open house. Their work was fast, they were very careful, moved 3 very heavy items upstairs from a basement with a turn in the stairway. Excellent work and I will definitely use them on my upcoming major move.
9/25/2015reviewing: Save U $$$ Services
These guys went above and beyond for me. I had seriously underestimated the time it would take to load. They stayed as long as it took to load the truck like a jenga puzzle. It was a beautiful sight; the unload crew complimented them, too.

The two gentlemen who helped us, Bernard and Neil, were very professional and respectful. We would recommend their services as well as use them again, if needed. We had a very good experience. Thanks for all the heavy lifting.

The movers were very professional and dedicated to getting my household goods inside even in the pouring rain. They were diligent in covering up my things as to protect them from the rain. They did a great job.
9/19/2015reviewing: Samuel Services
Arrived on time. We only had a few (less than 10) heavy items for the 2 movers to move. They managed to move everything down from our third floor apartment, drive with us 40 minutes to our house, and unload the truck and move items into our 2 story house with basement, all in under 2 hours! Would definitely use again!
Terrell and Ross were on time, super friendly, and extremely helpful! They loaded our truck in under the 2 hours. They were careful with everything and respectful of all of our things. They made our move so much easier!!!! They were absolutely worth the money!

Rebecca and Edgar were very efficient and quick. Very nice people, too! It was a hot day.. but they never complained and packed my storage unit very neatly! I'd highly recommend them! Thanks!!
9/15/2015reviewing: Pack and Go Moving
I hired 3 helpers to unload an ABF trailer. They were prompt, courteous, and careful with my things and my home. They were extremely apologetic for a small mark they made on a wall. That's the least you can expect from a big move! I would hire from Pack and Go moving again in a heartbeat. Plus, hiring them on Hire A Helper is super easy.
9/5/2015reviewing: Ogre Man Movers, LLC
Two guys came and unloaded our packed POD in about an hour. They used a strap technique to carry a solid wood, heavy dresser upstairs with no dolly. These guys are efficient and profesdional. I'm definitely going to use this company again.
8/8/2015reviewing: Hometowne Movers
These guys made a very stressful move become very relaxed. They were very willing to work with me when I ran into a problem getting a moving truck. Once they got started they worked extremely hard to get me loaded up and on the road. These guys truly care about their customers and quality of work. I would highly recommend them.
