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.

I have lived in several major cities and have hired movers every time. Without exception these young men who assisted me were the most polite and helpful Ive ever had. I would highly recommend them to anyone! Kelly
5/2/2015reviewing: Steady Hand Moving Co.
Prompt professional communication. Arrived on time and worked quickly but carefully. Very respectful of belongings and property. Hard workers. Would hire them again.
The helpers were efficient, organized and did an excellent job!! They arrived on time and took care to do the job well. I feel confident in how my furniture/boxes were packed in the pod. They worked hard the entire time and took care to wrap my items carefully. Paying them at the end of the move was easy. I would definitely use them again!
5/12/2015reviewing: Five Star Moving LLC
Highly recommended, no complaints whatsoever. They arrived on time with two hand trucks to unload our 7' POD. Responded to several last minute requests. Finished in less than 1.5 hours. Didn't bang or mar anything. Would definitely use them again, but we're hoping and praying this was our last move! Highly recommend HireAHelper as well. They were very responsive at both ends of move.

Bill and his son did a great job. Worked non stop but took enough time to pay attention to the details. They handled all my belongings as if they were their own. Good people and would recommend.
3/4/2015reviewing: J & L movers
They packed a lot of stuff into the two small storage units I had reserved. They were really careful with my things and I feel that all is secure and ready for travel. Wish they were available at my destination to help me unpack.
Thanks for the compliment Joan! We truly appreciate your business and good luck in your new home.

The two gentlemen that assisted me were very good. Unfortunately because I removed most of the items from the UHaul, the two men only brought in a few items. They assisted in setting up the furniture and was very polite. I would recommend them as they were very efficient. If more work was done I believe I could give a better review.
Frank and his crew are great. Loaded our truck with great care for our belongings. Watch the "tetris" game take shape right before your eyes. I was amazed at their speed and efficiency in loading our 8 room house move. Everything got on. These guys will work hard for you, and make every minute of your move count. Great job.
4/30/2015reviewing: Royal Mover
An absolute life saver. These guys are by far the best movers that I've ever worked with. Punctual, prepared, hard working, respectful, and friendly. I will definitely be using Royal Mover again for any of my moving needs.

Fantastic, couldn't be happier with the quality of service we received from the guys at Sebastian Moving & More. Showed up right on time, very professional and extremely careful when unloading our furniture. I highly recommend them to help you with your moving needs.

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

I am so grateful for the help John and Jo provided. They are very professional and worked hard and late so that the entire move could be completed. Thank you! I would definitely use their service again.
This was the 3rd time I've used Samuel Services. They were on time, they came prepared to work and worked very hard. They were very careful with the furniture and walls and very respectful over all. I would certainly hire them again. In fact, they are the only movers I'll use.

These guys were awesome. On time, courteous and really knew what they were doing. It's a work of art to see someone pack a truck or POD the right way and these guys have it! Definitely recommend them and will be using them for my unload in a few weeks again.

I had Mr. Morris and a helper who were wonderful. They were on time, called ahead, stayed very late for 2+ additional hrs with absolutely no complaints and were exceptionally professional. I was blessed to have had these gentleman. They had all the supplies and even left me with extra. I couldn't have had a better experience.
Thank You Anne, Have a great trip.
