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.

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.

On time and prepared for the job. Worked hard but did not offer to stay and help with setting up chairs even when there was extra time within the minimum and I asked them would they like to help set up some chairs?

They were on time and courteous! Those guys worked very hard! They did "ding" a closet and step but overall, I will hire them again and I will recommend this service without any reservations.
6/22/2015reviewing: The Spine Savers
They were punctual. They worked expeditiously. They worked well as a team. Very respectful and very professional on my requests for moving and arranging furniture before loading a rental truck. I would definitely recommend them. DE Pueblo , Co
They arrived early and got right to work. They were able to get several boxes and pieces of furniture up to my second floor. They finished the job right on time too! This was a 3 bedroom house loaded on a 24 foot trailer. I would use them again if I had to. Hopefully I can enjoy this home for years to come. Thanks guys!
We were so pleased with our movers. They worked hard the entire time. Most importantly, they used every single inch of truck space. They were such nice guys and took great care of our belongings. We couldn't have been more pleased. We gave our realtor their contact information to pass along to his clients.

My entire experience with M.H.M.E. Moving Solutions was great. The customer service was excellent making the whole project easy to set up and understand. The whole process on moving day ran smoothly thanks to the two guys who worked my order. It was getting late at night, but the guys never complained and were actually very pleasant the entire time they worked. Thank you!

These guys were phenomenal! They were right on time and prepared to work with a hand truck as I had requested. They worked extremely hard and were polite. They finished early in about 1.5 hours. They were respectful of my things and moved everything exactly where I wanted it. I would definitely use them again!!!
Great helpers. They called several days in advance to confirm and again the morning of the move. They showed up on time, got the job done, and gave me helpful tips on how to secure the rest of the items that I loaded myself. I would recommend using this company and should I need the help, I will use Hire A Helper again.
