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.

Zach and Bob were right on time and well prepared for the job. They worked hard, but carefully to load the truck. When we arrived at our destination their careful packing resulted in no damage to any of our things. Yes we would recommend Markowitz Relocation and use them again!

7/11/2015reviewing: Good Guy Movers
Our movers were excellent! I just felt bad that we completely underestimated the number of movers we needed so they ended up spending 5.5 hours loading our container in the midday heat! However, our Pack Rat container was packed exceptionally as we were worried that everything wasn't going to fit! Overall, they did an exceptional job and would highly recommend Good Guy Movers!
Excellent work, while there was a mixup about which location was being loaded and which was being unloaded at, the movers still arrived within the scheduled time frame and were able to finish quite quickly. I was very pleased with their work.
8/29/2015reviewing: Thunder Movers
I had requested a start time between 8-9am; got a call at 8:15 saying the movers would arrive between then and 10am. They did not arrive until 11:30. Other than being late, I had no issue - the movers were professional, quick, and conscientious. A bit overpriced compared to other options I've seen, but I would use them again.
8/8/2015reviewing: Crothers Brothers Moving LLC
Very polite hard working guys. They arrived early and stayed late. Couldn't have done it without them! Would definitely hire them again and/or recommend to others.
Julie, your order was a tall one and I'm happy that we were able to be part of it. We continue to strive for perfection in everything we do. Enjoy the new place and have a wonderful day.

The guys that came to pack the pods were exceptional. There were four gentlemen who went above and beyond their duties. They were polite and courteous as well as very hardworking and they got their jobs done wonderfully. We are very pleased with their service.
Thank you very much Katheryn

The two movers from A3J showed up right on time and just did a professional job in every respect. Couldn't have been more pleased with their work; I'd recommend them to anybody, and I'm using them again this week to load another container.
Thanks for the great review A.G! Thanks again for choosing A3J Moving Services!

Our helpers arrived early and worked for four hours non stop. They were extremely careful with our possessions and packed our pods incredibly well. Without a doubt we would certainly hire them again.
8/6/2015reviewing: All Around Movers
The reason I can't give a 5 star, if because they were extremely later than was expected. I think the company over books their workers. But once they got there, and yes, we were moving in the dark! Once they got there they were great! And got it all done!
thank you for your review sorry we was running late

Many thanks to Basil and Steve for their hard work and friendly attitude. They packed our pod to the max, and were able to fit far more than we ever expected. Every time we thought there might be a problem, their response was "no problem". We would highly recommend Q's movers, especially Basil and Steve to anyone who might need to hire a helper.
Thank you for sharing your experience with us Teresa! We value the time you took to do so. It is with great pleasure to provide you with quality service. Feel free to contact us for services in the future. Thank you for choosing Q's!

The guys were great, on time, worked like troopers, very knowledgeable about packing a pod, did the job in less than two hours. Amazing! I would definitely use them again.
I hired 2 guys for 2 hours to unload a 16 foot truck. They arrived on time and were very friendly and professional. The did not take a break and got everything unloaded without any damages. It was a pleasure working with these guys. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to get this type work done.
7/23/2015reviewing: M.H.M.E. Moving Solutions
The two men were VERY good! They took great care to insure my belongings were well wrapped and secure in the moving POD. I also appreciated how careful they were not to mark my walls as they moved the furniture. Thank you for a great move!!!
