Never got a verbal confirmation call. Called 3 different numbers and left a voicemail and text. Anytime you call it goes to an automated voice mailbox. Still no call back. On the day of moving the helpers called promptly when scheduled. Arrived at 12 from my 12-1 time slot which is great but I was not sure they would come. Commu…Read Morenication needs improvement. The helpers themselves were ok, id give them a 3.5/5. They did not appear professional. When I first met one of the helpers the first thing he asked me how much my rent was, that is not appropriate. They unloaded my truck fine, but when placing all my belongings in the unit they left the items all over the place and not in a neat fashion. I could have hired someone off craigslist that would have done the same job for cheaper. Up your standards Mobile Services Moving Labor if you are truly a professional moving company.Show Response
I had a conversation with you Shawn, after the move you personally stated everything went well. If there was any issues at the moment Mobile Services would have addressed it and did whatever you needed at the moment to make things better. I personally apologize for not returning your call, it was the end of the month which is the busiest time for movers. We will take this review in consideration and make adjustments...

Derrick and his partner did a fantastic job on this 3rd floor move. They arrived on time, worked well as a team and had the truck loaded in half the time planned. I noticed they took great care not to damage anything. The truck was packed so nicely that after 1400 mile trip home nothing shifted and everything was still as it was…Read More as packed. Would definitely recommend these guys.
The guys from Mobile Services did an awesome job with helping me for my move. They were on time to assist even when I had some delays and didn’t have any problem waiting. They were more than professional and handled all my goods with care. They made sure to ask where we wanted stuff in the house prior to placing it and they stac…Read Moreked everything neatly. I was really impressed with the two gentlemen they sent and how hard they were willing to work. They helped me a ton! I will definitely use them for my next move.
Damian and Kanieth went above and beyond to get the job done. They worked swiftly moving shelving units, boxes and furniture down three flights of stairs. Being mindful of the fragile furniture. They made sure our trash pile was in order and ready for pick up. I would definitely recommend Hire A Helper for the customer service a…Read Morend level of professionalism.
Polite but very unprofessional did a lot of damage to my floors walls railing did unload only they showed up about 20 after the hour We're very slow would not use them againShow Response
Very sorry that you feel that way however, the damage was done by your husband attempting to pull a box spring bed through a hallway/stair area which wasn't conducive to the very small hallway, the movers advised him not force it through, not to mention a concern for their safety by you holding weapon while the movers worked and making intimidating comments. The movers remained professional due to the situation.

booked these guys at 9:30 pm the night before due to original movers canceling on us. Was able to get ahold of the ower that night and confirmed that the crew will show up at a 10am start time...

Hired Mobile Services to help unload our 17 ft. UHaul. The 2 gentlemen were prompt, arriving exactly the time i had booked.

They finished the job on time and my roommates and I were incredibly happy with their services. I would not hesitate to hire them again!!!
The two guys sent to help me were excellent. The only thing that turned me off was a text message asking me if I was almost done when I had them booked for 2 hours and it had only been 30 minutes into the 2 hours and they also asked me if I used the guys more than 2 hours!! The guys were finished in 30 minutes. They were real…Read Morely helpful and friendly.
They were on time and very very fast. Sometimes people go too fast and cause damage, not these guys! They had a 6 bedroom 4500 sqft house (4 stories counting the basement) unloaded all beds assembled in 6 hours. Generally very friendly and would highly recommend them again.
Damian and Marquis were amazing! Showed up right on time, were extremely polite, ready to work and they worked hard. Damian is a master at loading a truck. They finished the job 10 minutes ahead of the 2 hours I had hired them for. I told them that was good enough yet they insisted on helping me for 10 more minutes. I highly rec…Read Moreommend this company and especially Damian and Marquis.
Tony and his team were exceptional -- super communication ahead of the move, they arrived on time, they handled my belongings with great care. They are a hard working team, very respectful, and above all they enjoyed helping! I would definitely call on them for my next move.
We used Mobile Services to move out of our two bedroom apartment into a 16 ft truck. Tony, Tyree, and Devante were prompt, professional, and extremely hard workers! They were very much prepared for the job and did an excellent job of wrapping all of our furniture with moving blankets and stretch wrap. The three helpers packed…Read More the truck in an incredibly efficient way and were very careful with all of our items. I will definitely be using Mobile Services on my next move and would recommend using them for any and all moves!! They knew exactly what they were doing and were able to finish the job in two hours.
This company made a stressful move easy breezy! The movers showed up on time and super respectful of our property. They were very efficient, yet careful with our things. Most importantly they're skilled in packing a A moving truck correctly! I highly recommend them!
Every time I have moved in the past, I used a "big name" mover like Allied or Bekins, so I was nervous about using Hire A Helper, but we were blown away. Mobile Services was on time, prepared, extremely respectful of our property and goods, and they were fast! We had 3 men for 6 hours, loading into a 26 ft truck (completely fu…Read Morell) then unloading into a storage unit. They finished in 5.5 hours....we were so impressed. Most importantly, we were moving an entire 3 bedroom house + garage into a 10x20 storage unit. and we were nervous about everything fitting because so many people told us that we would need a bigger unit or multiple units. They really know how to pack things efficiently! Not only did everything fit, we have room to spare! Again, couldn't be more pleased.... will be using them again once we find our house! Thanks so much!!
We hired two movers for three hours to move large furniture into a portable container (POD). They did a wonderful job. They worked hard and were very helpful. They wrapped our furniture with blankets and plastic wrap (that we provided). I would definitely hire them again for moving.
This company is not familiar with the HireAHelper system. They didn't go on the site to learn about what type of services we needed (which I filled out online), so were surprised and angry about having to unload our freight trailer and that we had stairs. One of the men complained the entire time and kept telling us we had bette…Read Morer give them a good tip. The other man, Eric, was great and friendly. I will say, they did complete the job and in a decent amount of time, but I think the move would've gone smoother and been less stressful if they had just been more aware of how HireAHelper operates and been prepared for the job.
They were on time and very nice. Not very experienced though. I would only recommend for a super easy move. I only had 1 piece of furniture for them to put together (a large queen bedframe from ikea) and I decided to not have them build it for me unfortunately. They seemed nervous to do it, asked me if I had the tools needed for…Read More it (when I put this request in the description and they should have had tools). I actually only wanted to hire movers for the ease of taking it apart and putting it back together, but I didn't find this with them. I was hoping for a stress free day, but I didn't exactly get that.
The two men that helped me showed up on time and were very courteous. However, they were extremely slow moving, which is problematic on moving day in Chicago, when you can only book an elevator for a set amount of time. They also did not come with any protective plastic for wrapping furniture. We were moving from a one bedroo…Read Morem apartment and booked two men for two hours of labor to help us pack the truck. It ended up taking them over 5 hours (after promising that 2 or 3 hours would be enough time once they assessed the size of the apartment), and the majority of the moving was done by my husband and I while they packed items slowly from the sidewalk into the truck. There was a point when I had brought 3-4 loads of items out and in that span of time, saw no difference in the truck during that time. I had also requested ahead of time that they disassemble our bed, which ended up being something we did ourselves because they never got to it. I would not use this service again.
They were on time and very nice, but super super slow and inexperienced. I had a 1 bedroom move that I thought would have been pretty easy. I've moved 4 times in the last 5 years, I know how moves go - I will never try and use cheaper movers again. I warned the movers we only had 1 hour with the freight elevator because of my bu…Read Moreilding so you think they would have hustled, but no at the end of 1 hour they had only moved my boxes and small stuff out. All the large pieces of furniture were still inside. we were lucky enough that the next people to use the freight elevator showed up late so in total we had an hour and 45 minutes with it. By the time we got kicked out of it they had at least moved my couches, but half of my apartment was still full with heavy items to be moved. This move ended up taking over 3 hours in total and I had to end up helping and bringing loads down! I hire movers to take the stress away from moving and I was more stressed out with them. I am so disappointed with the service I had, I will never use this company again. I wish I was watching them with the freight elevator because I have no idea how they were loading it or how full it was when they went down to the truck with things. They wasted so much time and I have no idea what they were doing. There were two of them and one of them could not do anything without the other. It was the worst strategy I have ever seen.
My group of 4 guys was on time and ready to work. You have to make sure you let the owner know what supplies need to be brought to the site. They worked very hard and took great care of me and my things. They needed to stay a few extra hours and went above and beyond to make sure what I needed was taken care of! I appreciate the…Read Morem so much!
Tony and Shawn were on time, were very nice young men, and put a lot of effort into moving and packing our belongings. They organized the truck beautifully and nothing moved during the 5 hour drive - which included a steep, uneven hill leading to the new house. Only problem was that they packed several items TOO tightly - causin…Read Moreg the leg of a chair to split and the side of an antique wooden desk to be crushed. I didn't like the chair much anyway, but was super disappointed about my daughter's desk, which can't be repaired. They will be great with a bit more experience. The price was right, too. Overall, satisfied.
My move went fantastic. They were on time, actually a few minutes early to be honest. Showed up with 3 guys instead of the 2 that I requested so the move went even quicker than anticipated. They were very respectful of my property as well as very respectful to my wife and I, always calling us Sir or Ma'am. It wasn't necessary…Read More but it was appreciated. I honestly can't say enough about how professional it was. I was hesitant to hire movers at first but Mobile Services put my doubts to rest. Great job and when I move again, they will definitely get my business.
Tony and Charles of Mobile Services pulled together and worked very, very hard to unload our truck. It took quite awhile because of the volume, but they just did it! All items arrived in good shape. We thank them very much for there considerable effort to complete the job. We would definitely recommend them!
Mobile Services did an excellent job for me. The movers were on time. They went over and above to help my family get our belongings out of the house. They took great care with my belongings. They were friendly and helpful in every way. The belongings we ended up storing in the garage were packed expertly and neatly. The men …Read Moreworked a tireless 16 hours to get me moved and they did a great job. I would definitely recommend them to anyone needing movers.
Mobile services showed up on time, and completed (the majority of) the job; however, I had more concerns/issues in my interactions with them than previous movers/helpers I've worked with. They were moving me on a busy day, and had told me they'd come back later to finish assembling my bed, but did not complete the job that nigh…Read Moret (or during following 3 days. I eventually hired other help to complete that task.) They also left behind pieces of my furniture that I transported afterwards on my own. Minor scratches on one piece. The guys worked hard, but were not the most efficient and thorough helpers to work with. I'd say they were an average company- initially responsive, and ultimately, get basic work done.
Our movers showed up on time, and worked hard for 4 hours to move us out of our old apartment and into our new apartment. They were great sports about our 3 flights of stairs, too! My husband and I helped so we would have enough time. We were moving from a one bedroom apartment. We hired 2 movers for 4 hours. We had one flight o…Read Moref stairs for loading the truck, and 10 minute drive to the new apartment, and 3 flights of stairs for unloading the truck. If you are not willing to help the movers, I would recommend hiring 3 (or 4) movers for 4 hours.
Yes they were spot on-time very good! One guy was mentally prepared as the other was not, did not know about the flights of stairs moving from and to. Yes they both worked hard. They were very respectful of my property and goods. I would use them again.
I got a surprise on a moving date since movers came without hand tools.I specifically mentioned that I require assembly and disassembly of furniture.Called owner and he said my movers dont bring that unless you mention specifically.To my surprise , he agreed he hasn't read description yet. There was a huge communication gap betw…Read Moreeen Owner and Movers.Somehow i managed tools quickly and movers started disassembly and loading.They did a good job but were very slow. Took 3 hours for loading my 1 bedroom loft. Pros : Movers were on Time
My Mobile Services experience was fantastic. They called me before my move to confirm what i needed and took the time to listen to what was important to me with their help. The day of the move they were early but their time didnt start till i was ready. Very polite and respectful to me and my belongings. I knew i was in gre…Read Moreat hands and my job was completed right on schedule. I highly recommend using Mobile Services.
I hired 2 movers for 2 hours. The two gentleman arrived 15 minutes early and that was great for me because I was ready for them. They were ready for the job and clearly knew how to get furniture out and in what order to fit it on the Uhaul truck. They were very effecient and found them to be hustling back to get the next piece o…Read Moref furniture. They were very respectful of my things (especially because I moved during a time when it was raining with leather furniture). I would definately use them again when I move.
This company did a great job! We were running late and they still came in and unloaded our truck for us. They were incredibly respectful and got the job done perfectly. We moved into a 3rd floor apartment with no elevator and they didn't complain at all. I would definitely use this company again!
First, let me say that the movers themselves (the two guys who came to our place and the man who drove them) were SO amazing! If this was just a review of them, I would give them 6 stars if possible. I did have a few issues with scheduling. After confirming on HireAHelper, we tried to reach out to the company to confirm for seve…Read Moreral days leading up to the move, a total of probably 5-6 phone calls and voicemails we left with the phone number given, as well as an email. The Sunday afternoon before our Tuesday move, we still hadn't gotten a call back so I called to leave a message, expecting we were going to have to cancel. Someone answered! He apologized and said he thought he had called everyone on his list to confirm with them, but it still doesn't explain the multiple unanswered calls and voicemails we left. He told me that we were confirmed and that our movers would call 30 minutes before arriving on Tuesday. That never happened - we were on our way to the moving site when we got a call from our doorman that the movers were waiting in the lobby! They were about ten minutes early for the arrival window, but that ended up being fine for us. Communication could have been a little better with the office, and we were expecting a 30 minute call because we were told that was what would happen, but as I said above, the guys who actually came to help us were amazing (they managed to pack our stuff so efficiently and safely unloaded everything - no damage to any of our belongings), so it was definitely worth it in the end. I would recommend, as I'm hoping our experience with the miscommunication was not normal practice for them.
I hired 2 people for 2 hours and they did a great job. They loaded my 1 bedroom apt within the 2 hours and packed it in the truck so that it all fit. They were very nice and offered to help move things I was trying to move into my car. I only had one scratch on a piece of furniture, otherwise everything looked like it was in gre…Read Moreat condition.
The guys were great. Worked quickly and were really helpful. They made good recommendations and helped us secure our stuff in our truck. They knew how to pack the truck and took command which we wanted. We traveled 14 hours and not a single thing moved. Only a couple things were knicked or saw some minor damage, which was really…Read More amazing considering the amount of stuff.
These guys were great! They showed up on time, and they were careful with my heavy, awkward furniture. I hired them for two hours and they were finished within 45 minutes. Plus they were very polite and offered to assemble anything I might need help with. The whole process was easy and stress-free.
We would like to thank our two movers Brothers Paul and LaMark for making loading our POD a great experience! They were on time, professional, and super positive! They professionally wrapped all our furnishings, carefully moved every item and fully maximized our POD. It had been such a rough month selling our home and planning…Read More to move across the country, I told them they were so wonderful they made our day! Thank you again!
These guys were really great, they arrived on time, helped us load our truck and packed it beautifully, absolutely nothing was broken or moved around much at all when we arrived at our destination.

Firstly, my husband completed the survey that the helpers handed to him whilst they waited. This proved awkward as my husband felt he couldn't give an honest critique whilst being observed by the helpers. The helpers arrived on time, were courteous and respectful of our property and goods. They worked hard, however I would not …Read Moresay they were prepared for the job as they never used any moving equipment. It took them several minutes to work out a plan as to what to move first. Despite us offering bungee cords/string to secure our belongings whilst in the truck, the helpers declined to use them. This left us anxious as our goods are now in store age and we hope they haven't 'moved' much whilst in transit. I am not sure if I would use them again.
I used 2 boys and they were awesone very hard working young men. I really appreciated their help tremendously. I definetly will recommend hire a mover. I called last minute after my plans of movers didn't turn out and was able to get 2 boys the very next day! Great job boys!!!!
Excellent service. Guys were on time and worked hard to minimize moving time. They demonstrated to be professional in how to move the furniture and load/unload the truck.

DO NOT USE THESE MOVERS. This was a simple unload of a small moving truck. The movers were 2 1/2 hours late. No reason for it except that they had another job.

Yet I sti…Read Morell had to pay for the two hours -- and do most of the moving myself.

We hired Mobile Moving labor Helpers from their reviews. Our contact never called us to confirm the date, so we called him. They explained to us that this wasn't his only job, so sometimes he is difficult to reach. Everett and his crew arrived about 15 minutes late, but they called, so we weren't worried. We reserved a 4 men mov…Read Moreing crew and had a 24' truck with a ramp. The men worked fairly efficiently, they were excellent at wrapping anything that needed extra packaging and made decent time getting everything downstairs. Sometimes there was more socializing going on than running up and down stairs, but everyone needs a break. Everett was an absolute master at fitting everything into the truck perfectly. Not ONE thing moved left / right / back / forth during transit. Nothing was damaged during transit and only one thing was broken when a mover dropped a cake plate. But, he apologized profusely and offered to pay for it. Their conscientousness was greatly appreciated on a stressful day.
I was not satisfied with the movers. They explained that moving was not their profession - it is just something they do on the weekends sometimes. It showed. Though they started working immediately upon arrival, the work slowed considerably and I ended up having to pay for an extra hour of labor. They had no idea how to load…Read More the truck and did not load things as we suggested. This is my 18th move in 10 years, so I have some experience in the both the best and the worst of movers. I would not use this company again.
My moving labor helpers were great! They arrived early and were very professional. I had some concerns that I had rented a moving truck that appeared to be too small, but they reassured me that they would be able to make it work, which they did! I would definitely recommend Mobile Moving labor Helpers to friends and family.
I had Ali and Niko help me move out of my apartment. they were excellent and very friendly. they took good care of my things. this is my second using HIre a Helper and I will use them again!! Thank you for making my move less stressful.
I cannot recommend them enough. They contacted me the night before to confirm and check for any needed supplies. They were prompt and professional. They actually finished earlier than I expected. They were great to work with and made a potentially nightmare situation bearable.
We moved from one apt. to another in downtown Chicago on the busiest weekend for moving of the year (Aug. 1st)! Drew and Everett were the absolute BEST help we could have dreamed of. They were on time, very professional, courteous. They called to let us know they were on their way and once they arrived (even a bit early). We…Read More will recommend them to everyone.

The moving labor help was great. He really knew what he was doing and worked hard. There was some difficulty getting in contact at the start of the job because he had some communication problems with his contact from this website. Fortunately we managed to overcome that problem quickly.
My movers were FANTASTIC!!! They really worked with my schedule, which was 2 hours later than I had planned. They got to my location and worked right away. The guys were efficient, fast, and curteous. Thank you Everett & Junior for helping make my transition easier. I appreciate it.
They were extremely helpful and professional. As soon as they accepted the job online, I received a call immediately after to confirm. I also received a call a couple of hours before the scheduled time on the day of the move to again confirm. I would definitely recommend to others!

Great service. We were running early to Chicago with our do-it-yourself moving truck, and our helpers were willin to show up ahead of their scheduled time, which was great as it's hard to park a large truck on the street for a long period of time.
