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.

They were a little late, but they made up for it by doing an outstanding job! They were totally prepared for the job and worked very hard to get the maximum amount of work done in the shortest time. They were very respectful of my property and I would call them again for any packing/moving that I might need.
Called 20 min before arrival. They worked very hard and respectful. I would differently use them again. They are Tony and Jason.
Thanks Mike. I'm glad we were able to make your move a sucsess!

I have moved over 20 times in the last 10yrs. These guys were by far some of the best helpers I have used. They were on time and finished up faster than any other people I have used. Friendly, polite and hard workers. I will be using them again when I move into my house soon. They took real good care of my property as well.
7/30/2015reviewing: East Carolina Moving
Very respectful movers! They worked hard to move my third floor apartment! They were 45 minutes late but only because they couldn't get the truck out of the warehouse. I would use them again.
9/16/2015reviewing: CHAZ & CREW
Best crew we ever had! Non-stop workers, unloaded our container quickly and efficiently, carefully placed everything where we wanted it. I'm in the real estate business and these guys were just added to my recommended vendors list!

The guys were on time, professional, and very efficient in handling the job within the 2 hours. They packed the truck extremely well, being careful not to damage any of my belongings. They all had very respectful, positive attitudes! I would highly recommend this team of movers and would gladly use them again!

They were fine once they got there -were to be there 9-10 am and at 10:00 we did not hear from them so we called and they said they were stuck at previous job snd would be there at 10:30-they did not show up until 11-not happy with that!!
Thanks for the 5 STAR REVIEW Sharon. Thanks for understanding, it's hard telling a customer that we can't stay to finish because we have another job to get to. We try to keep the line of communication open at all time, we will do better. Thank you.

Adam and his crew were great! They handled our furniture and boxes as if they were their own, showing great care to not damage anything. Went way beyond what was expected, even moving a heavy file cabinet upstairs that wasn't part of the original quote for service. I will certainly hire Moonlight Movers again, my wife and I couldn't be happier with this company...
These are the types of reviews that make us want to be as careful and professional as possible with every individual job. We like clocking out the day reading about how satisfied our customers are,and look forward to adding many more in the future. Thank you all for having us and welcome to the area!

The crew showed up earlier than expected and brought an extra helper, which made the unload go even quicker! They worked non-stop and made sure to be mindful of every item. I would definitely use them again.
8/1/2015reviewing: Onward Moving Service
They were on time and prepared for my horrendous house full of furniture & lots of boxes. They worked quickly even though I had very large, heavy furniture. They treated my belongings very well and would highly recommend them. I would call for their service again.
They worked very hard in the miserable heat and humidity. They packed our POD very efficiently. We were surprised how much of our furniture and various other house goods they were able to pack.
