Jules and Robert worked hard and efficiently. They were careful to protect my furniture and to avoid any mishaps with doors or walls. They arrived right on time, ready to work. They had quick solutions for moving large items into tricky places. I was preparing for floor refinishing, so I plan to use them after the floors are…Read More done. They have my complete confidence.
I cannot recommend Handy Hands Labor enough. This crew is professional, skilled, friendly and highly efficient. They made my move easy. I had to load and unload the contents of my home on separate dates. They were extremely flexible with this. If I ever need movers again, Handy Hands Labor will be the first on my list to call.
This crew was two guys. They came with wonderful attitudes despite all of us finding out that the building didn't have an elevator at the last minute. They helped us get our heaviest furniture and boxes in place. They were great at communicating before and during the move. Really appreciated their help!
Can't say enough good things about the team that helped with my move today. They arrived on time and ready to work. They packed our POD like champs, and handled everything with care and professionally. Not only that, they were super nice and polite, helpful and cheery despite it being one of the hottest days of the year. I would…Read More hire them again in a second, and highly recommend them.
The owner was friendly, calling us promptly upon booking. The two men arrived very punctual and friendly; and assured us that they had a lot of moving experience. While moving out stuff however there were mumbled complaints, frustrations and I just felt that they were not prepared to move the items we had listed. They did hit th…Read Moree ceiling of the apartment hallway, causing a large indentation (hole, really). We asked them to compensate anything more than two hours that they had booked us for. They agreed to it, but only went over by about 10 minutes. Since the included insurance doesn’t cover damage to walls and ceilings, we assumed we would have to eat the cost. After our review was seen, we were contacted by the owner, who had not been informed by staff about the hole. He has since offered to repair it, or reimburse us the cost.
The guys were on time. They did a great job moving my things. I mentioned a green tote that contained very important paper work,,the guys found it and then told me..much appreciated. We were at a Uhaul place and I was having problems..they offered to help if I needed them. I went up with my parents. My father is 84 yrs old and w…Read Moreaiting in the car when we got started so I said hold on I needed to check on him and both guys responded said "Of course" and actually cared about his well-being (it was very hot and muggy) great service and they went above and beyond for us.
Simply great. They arrived on time (which was impressive since it was pretty far and remote), they were courteous and efficient, and everything went smoothly -- which was especially impressive, since we had a LOT of heavy equipment, machines, and auto parts to move over a pretty long walk from the truck. They handled it all with…Read More ease, without a single complaint or hassle. We'd definitely hire them again.
Marshall was right in top of communication from the minute I submitted my work request. The two men he sent to move us, Mike S and Dat were amazing. They showed up a few minutes early got right to work and worked right through the full 5 hours. They took great care in moving our stuff but with so much efficiency. You could tel…Read Morel as they were packing the truck each item was thought about for maximum usage of truck space and protection for our things. Which worked because not one item was damaged. They thought about the little things that I didn't even think of to make moving day much less stressful. I would hire them again or any of the Handy Hands workers without hesitation.
Four fellas arrived on time, were careful with our items and home and were very respectful and polite. The project was completed in three hours and after a searching walk tru to make certain that they had loaded everything that we had asked that they load, shook hands and wished us safe travels. What more can you ask for?
I wish I could post photos to tell the story. They loaded our moving truck on the front end. First they said the truck was too big. At the end they did not fit all of our stuff. Mike kept telling us what a moving professional he was. During the offload most of our furniture was broken - not because of a blanket not used but be…Read Morecause of careless packing. The photos I have show stuff just thrown Into the truck. My bench from my dining room set legs broken and ruined. My office chair arms just snapped off. My credenza totally broken in half because they put heavy boxes on top of it. The list goes on and on. Horrible. To make matters worse we gave each worker a $50 tip. Do not use these guysShow Response

Excellent service. Punctual, courteous, caring, professional. And their service is available after 5 pm - a big plus for weekday moves. Marshall at the office was very accommodative. While booking, Hire-a-Helper gives you a one-hour window, 4-5 pm in my case, for the arrival of the helpers. Being on a workday, I needed them to …Read Morearrive closer to 5 pm. I called Marshall and requested for helper arrival at 5 pm or very close to 5 pm. Tyler and John - the moving labor helpers - arrived at 4:55 pm. Both are very courteous, caring and enthusiatic about the work. I was moving a large upright freezer. They treated it with care as if they are moving their own freezer. They didn't waste any time and the move was successfully completed well within the 2-hr window. Very impressed. Highly recommend Handy Hands Labor.
This was so worth the money - two polite and VERY strong young men arrived and helped me unload my moving truck. They worked hard carrying many heavy items upstairs. They couldn't have worked harder or been more pleasant. I highly recommend them.
I rated this review 5 Stars only because there isn't a 10 Star rating. Mike and Matt are the hardest working guys I've ever seen in the business. On time as requested and completed my moving job in 2 amazing hours. Even though they worked at a remarkable speed they used extreme care in handling a house full of family heirloom…Read Mores and antiques. Every item was cushioned and covered and made the 170 mile trip to our house without a scratch. I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone in need of moving professionals.
My move from Boston to Albany was full of hiccups that were out of my control - it became apparent I wasn't going to meet my 5-6 arrival time as I had originally requested of Handy Hands, and when I contacted Marshall at Handy Hands, to let him know it was going to be closer to 7 p.m. or later, he was completely flexible and un…Read Morederstanding. It was a horribly hot and sticky night and the 2 man Handy Hands crew soldiered through, carrying a number of cumbersome pieces of furniture and innumerable boxes and odd pieces to the second floor of a 90 year old home. The only damage was a pretty good ding in the hallway wall but my landlord assured me a little spackle and paint would fix it right up...every move has an oops. I'd readily recommend Handy Hands.
The men were on time and prepared to do the job. They did what I asked them to do. The men were knowledgable about furniture. Some was taken a part and then put together. They were careful with my property and goods. I would use them again!
Handy Hands helped us to move on Sunday. They arrived on time, and were prepared for the job. Marshall phoned me twice beforehand to make sure that he knew what to expect and so did I. They worked hard and did so thoughtfully; they made suggestions re: how to balance light and heavier objects and furniture. They worked very hard…Read More to try to bring an antique dining room set that's been in the family up the curved staircase in our Victorian house, to no avail. They tried moving it in multiple ways, and expressed their sadness when it simply couldn't make it. I would use them again--no question. They were fair, careful, strong and kind.
Workers were very hard working and helpful. My only complaint is that they started 40 minutes late due to a different job that ran late apparently. They did not have any tools or even a dolly and that would have been helpful for them I believe. Because they started late we were not able to borrow a dolly to help them out becaus…Read Moree the storage facility people had gone home at 5pm (they started at 4:40pm).
Prompt (actually a little early, and they called first to make sure that was ok), very hard working, polite, and always checking in with me to make sure everything was going how I wanted. They were really wonderful, and I will hire them again if needed and definitely recommend them to friends/family.
One guy did twice as much as the other. Feel the last hour to hour and a half was milked. Job was booked for 4 hrs and it went to 4 hrs and 5 minutes. When called Hire A Helper to release payment we asked about the other 5 minutes and they called mover to see if he would wave the 5 minutes and they said no and tried to make us p…Read Moreay for 15 more minutes. Had to dispute extra charges. He lied and later texted that Hire A Helper was the one charging extra. Was not impressed.Show Response
Thank You for the opportunity to help a fellow Vet. But as far as the time being milked that is a very unreasonable statement. We did 2 trips with a 15ft truck and you can ask any other moving company out there 4 hours to load and unload 2 15 ft trucks with travel involved is pretty good timing. As far as you questioning my integrity and saying that I lied that also in not true. We started loading the first load @ 8:50 am (you can read the policy on hire a helpers website time starts when the mo
~ Handy Hands Labor
Communication was great, I was contacted immediately, and both men worked steadily and efficiently on loading our POD. Unfortunately I am not able to give 5 stars - they did not wrap all our furniture and did not pay attention to whether the boxes were marked with "do not stack", so at least 2 boxes were crushed. As well as a …Read Morepart for our clothing rack was missing upon unloading. This was not due to not enough time, since we hired them for 7 hours and they only worked 4 hours. We did not receive a refund for the hours not worked. So they could spent more time being careful with our possessions.Show Response
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your moving needs. I am sorry for the unfortunate experience that you had. Just know that this is definitely not the norm for us. As far as the refund when you went to release the payment you could have told them the hours actually worked.

Very nice job, combined with great perceptiveness that I was stressed because the previous mover did a no show. The packing was tight and professionally done, I felt at peace very quickly. I appreciated it beyond the work itself. Thoughtful folks.
They were great. Came on time. Even text me when they were on their way. They finished in less than 2 hours and used the additional time to help us move furniture and boxes around. This is the 3rd move I have used them and would tell anyone it's well worth every penny.
First things first, they are super prompt. The minute I confirmed the booking( we did it the last minute) they called and went through the details with us. We were delayed in getting the truck and they were flexible with the arrival time. They were super efficient with loading the stuff in the truck. In fact they even waited for…Read More me to finish a couple of boxes to get it on the truck. The only thing was a couple of plastic stuff broke due to heavy luggage on top of it. But I would still use them again and recommend them!!
Arrived early, very prepared, worked very hard, very respectful, will use again and again. Both guys were beyond what I expected. Both guys were great. Very helpful and showed up to work. i give them 10 out of 10. Will use again in future, for sure. Great job!
This was an awesome team; I highly recommend Handy Hands! Even though it was a really muggy day and the move was somewhat complicated, they were upbeat, energetic, and very fast! It was my first time using them, but they will now be my go-to choice for moving labor help. Thank you!
Outstanding!!!!! We didn't needed realize, until the last minute, that we needed additional help moving my sister from Albany to Schenectady, NY. We called HireAHelper and they recommended Handy Hands Labor. They arrived early, hustled it up to get the job done early, were professional, nice,…Read More polite, and accommodating. We had a great experience and were so grateful to have found them. I'd call them again. Thank you, Ria.
