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.

Arrived on time, very respectable, friendly and got the job done - not to mention saved me a huge headache of trying to do it myself or get friends to help! Will use again!
5/8/2015reviewing: Sebastian Moving
The men got to our house on time and started to work right away. They never stopped until the job was done. They took great care of our things. The owners of the company were just as caring and respectful as anyone I have ever dealt with. Yes, I would recommend Sebastian Moving to anyone needing to move local or long distance.

Guys were very polite and worked quickly. Packed the Pod very efficiently. One broken piece of furniture (Ikea bookshelf, not unexpected, they are flimsy). Would definitely work with these guys again.
Glad to hear we could make your day easier,sorry about the bookshelf but yes (particle board) in most cases doesn't like to be moved twice but glad all else went smooth. Enjoy the new area and take care!

Billy and Tom were exceptional hard workers. They called ahead of time to let us know when we should expect them and they promptly showed up on time. They did an amazing job under tough conditions of a flight of stairs and the heat. We would definitely recommend them. Mike and Brenda McDonnell

Both Joey and Brandon exceeded our expectations in their competency, professionalism, friendliness and their work ethic. We have already hired them again to help us with the next phase of our move. Sorry it's Brett not Brandon.

S&L was great to work with. They were on time (same day schedule) and worked hard to get the job done in a timely manner. They were prepared with tools needed to disassemble furniture and respectfully handled all of our items. I would definitely recommend S&L to someone else and have already hired them again for the unloading project we have in a week!
Thank you Melinda, thanks for the awesome 5 STAR rating

They worked very hard and took great care with our furnishings. The only complaint I had was that they arrived later than we had asked for although they gave us advance notice of their arrival time. I will definitely use them again.

Awesome team of guys! They were a few minutes late, but called to let me know- so no big deal. They did an amazing job loading our 3 bedroom house into 2 moving trucks. They were respectful, courteous, hard workers, and tremendously helpful. I would cheerfully recommend this company to anyone who wants to make their move so much easier!
3/14/2015reviewing: Tri-City Movers
The 2 men from Tri-city did a wonderful job. Move completed ahead of schedule with no damage. They treated our furniture as if it were their own. Will not hesitate to use Tri-city in the future.
Thank you for the review Bob. We are so glad we were able to assist you.

Joe and Eric were on time, professional, organized and very friendly. They were very considerate of our needs and handled our belongings with care. I'd highly recommend them. Thank you for a job well done!!!!
We were very pleased with their service. They did a good job packing and putting on our Pod. We should have booked more time because they had to leave for another job but they did their best to get the heaviest pieces on. We underestinated but that was our fault. We would use them again.
4/27/2015reviewing: Southern Cross Moving
Hard working, very polite and professional . They are the greatest movers that I've seen in 62 years and the best . They took extra care of my wife's antiques and took away my worries. I just recommend to anyone that uses them to just let them do their job. They know exactly what they're doing.they were prepared, courteous , and on time.we wish we could take them with us??
Absolutely amazing review thank you so much. We are not your typical movers and it is showing through all these reviews. I am truly blessed with having the guys that I do. Good luck in Tennesse

5/10/2015reviewing: Coffey Bros. Moving
I was not prepared with markers for each worker to mark what room each box was packed in and so all my boxes are jumbled together without location indication. This will make placing them in a new home very difficult. HAVE MARKERS FOR ALL HELPERS WHEN THEY ARRIVE AND ASK FOR BOXES TO BE MARKED WHEN EXPLAINING WORK. The workers are diligent, careful, polite, and efficient.
4/27/2015reviewing: Strong Arm Movers
These guys were great. On time, polite, careful and very skilled at fitting a ton of stuff in a small space. They had all their own hand trucks and dollies. I would definitely recommend them.
5/22/2015reviewing: All In The Family Movers
I used All in the family movers last year to unload some PODS containers at the house I rented. They did a great job. I used them again this time to load a POD container. They arrived on time and did a great job packing the POD to its fullest, wasting no time or space. I highly recommend them. This time I'm moving to Florida or I would use them to unload the POD also.
