This page explains the requirements for movers listing services on HireAHelper.com. We allow service providers to list only their labor rates for labor-only moves (where the customer is the one providing the truck, storage container, etc.)
Standard Repair Coverage Insurance: Included (free)
Covers up to $.60 per pound. After booking your job, you must activate the policy by completing an inventory form. Not available for same day or next-day jobs.
Covers goods while they are being handled by the worker. Covers goods while in transit in a storage container, but not rental trucks.
Full-Value Replacement Insurance: Available (extra cost)
Covers repair or replacement costs for up to the full value of your goods, regardless of weight. Not available on same day or next-day jobs.
Covers goods while they are being handled by the worker. Covers goods while in transit in a storage container, but not rental trucks. Available for purchase after you've booked your job. This policy costs $9 per $1,000 of declared value.
License Information: None Required
HireAHelper allows movers to list their moving labor services only.
A special license isn't required to lift things into a truck or storage container. Note: Many service providers have a business license or even a full-service moving license even though it is not required for labor-only moving jobs. We allow them to list these credentials in their profile if they want.
Commercial Liability: Not Required
Hiring a service provider with this type of policy provides you with a level of security in the event you have to file a suit.
This type of insurance isn't required. However, if a company does carry this type of policy, you'll see it on their profile.
