Marcus and Thomas were awesome. Courteous, professional and fast. They knocked out some serious work in short order and made it look easy. What would have taken me all day with some help, they were done unloading two 16' containers in under just under 3 hours.

Although they were not on time and were a person short, I was notified prior and the accommodations made were perfect. They worked the whole time and took good care in moving my belongings. I plan on hiring them again in about three weeks.

They showed up on time and worked very hard, but weren't very good at packing things in my container efficiently so I wound up doing that for them. As long as you don't need lots of things in tight spaces they're very good.

Fredreko and Demarco were awesome in helping me offload my POD. They were so polite and professional and took great care of my belongings as well as ensuring they didn’t scratch floors or bump walls while moving me in. I couldn’t have done it without them. I’d highly recommend Hire A Helper!

I was expecting 2 men and 3 showed up. They were very respectful and worked hard. We got my moving van unloaded in one hour and they spent the next hour helping me get my furniture unwrapped and put together. They then went one step further and followed me to drop off the moving van & car tow dolly then brought me back home. Not only do I recommend them, I will absolutely use them again.

Day Labor FAQ

Can I book them for other day labor type stuff, even though they're movers?

Yes! Movers are experienced in heavy lifting and moving things around. People can book movers to do many tasks - not just moving - like setting up and taking down events, or even moving specialty equipment inside a hospital.

Can I hire them as moving labor to help move my own stuff?

Yes! They're perfect for moving everything from a million tiny boxes, down to your last, huge appliance. Search the marketplace for exactly the help you need for as long as you need it.

Movers aren't paid until after the job is done

No sketchy ads, no babysitting the moving company, no "hostage" situations. Plus, your crew isn't paid until your move is done. You call the shots.
