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.

Mike and Mike were great! They showed up on time, were very professional and extremely efficient. I had accumulated additional pieces of furniture since the last time I used a POD, but they said it was no problem and quickly went to work making sure I was able to bring every last item with me. Highly recommended! Thanks guys!

Ashley and Randall were great! They did a wonderful job packing the truck - the job was done professionally. In addition, Ashley and Randall had friendly and helpful personalities. This team is highly recommended!
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. These were some of the nicest people we have ever moved. From, Amy (not Ashley) and Randall.

These guys were the A-team of mover manpower. Organized, neat, strong and tireless. They set a steady pace and showed great respect for the objects they were relocating, making sure each item ended up in the right room and no accidental dings to the drywall in the new home. We really enjoyed the experience and will recommend your service widely.
5/4/2015reviewing: My Moving People
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.

Excellent service - started on time and got everything (unload a 16 x 8 footer) done in 2 hours. The team was flexible to come a day early when we got the container earlier than expected.
5/11/2015reviewing: Acme Moving Labor
They were not on time due to a missed ferry, but I had flexibility to accommodate. Great service, worked hard, and very respectful of me and my property. Kedrick is a master of his craft! Money well spent for a professional loading of a PackRat container.
Despite a descrepancy in move in dates, they were able to get a couple of guys out same day and get the move done. They finished unloading a 16' Pack Rat box in less than two hours. Great work!!
Arrived at the end of the window but still on time. Took a bit of time to catch their snap but did get a ton of stuff in the truck, way more than I would have.

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.
They were fast and handled the stairs admirably. The truck was packed very well. I wish I had allowed another hour for unpacking. As it was, I only had time for them to put everything in the living room. They managed to navigate the truck very well for loading and unloading. I would use them again - but plan for an extra hour!
Thank you Lisa for the work !

Great job! They were able to help us at the last minute and did an awesome job in loading furniture and boxes to move out of state. Would definitely recommend to anyone in need of some extra lifting help and will use them again.
They were on time and did a great job I would recommend this service and yes when we get to our destination of course we will use them great service thanks the millers
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!
