Movers were on time and came with tools and finished in the 3 hours we had booked them for. Everything was moved carefully and packed considerately. They were very communicative the whole time and respectful of the millions of things we had going on! I would recommend them and hire them again.
I had to cancel my appointment with them several times due to personal issues. They cooperated and worked with me and I appreciate it. I appreciate their help in packing the POD very well and helping me move items in the basement to go through and pack later this week. They were respectful of my property and "stuff". This POD…Read More is going into storage.
Faizon, Trent and Aaron were incredible!!

Great group of young guys, they showed up on time, got started right away, moved things in a very efficient and steady manner, they were very careful with not only my possessions but with the surroundings that they were carrying those through. They even took a little time to be more than just movers but also very friendly big s…Read Moremile’s, and kind of joked around a little bit with me . We are Christians it was my pleasure to give them a $40 tip. I would highly recommend them to anyone to move anything.
The movers worked really hard. But after they left, I discovered a few issues. First the PODs where not packed as efficiently as I would have hoped. My wife and I discovered there was a lot of unused space towards the front of the PODs. There was no way we could have fit our remaining belongings in the PODs, if we didn’t repack …Read Morethe front with boxes... Secondly, my wife said she heard the movers drop our armoire on the sidewalk. I’m not sure what the level of damage maybe, unfortunately we will not know until we reach our destination.
I drove a UHaul to Ann Arbor and just wanted help unloading the truck into my apt. Helpful Movers arrived 2 hours late!!!!! They didn’t even call to notify me, I had to text to ask if they needed directions. They told me they’d be 20 min late, but it ended up being 2 hours. Three guys arrived instead of the two I had requested, …Read Morewhich was nice because they moved my furniture in less than an hour. But they smoked the whole time, which made the UHaul smell and UHaul made me pay a cleaning fee. I would not recommend them!
Our movers were on time and they called us to let us know that they were on the way. They worked nonstop for the 4 hours onsite and were in constant communication with us to make sure they didn’t miss anything. We arrived in Florida and the truck was still packed well with no damage. Guys did a great job.
Our movers were on time, they worked extremely hard especially given the heat on that day and they were very respectful and helpful. We are going to request the same two gentlemen for unpacking our POD when we close on our condo. Thank you.
The movers were polite , however I had to leave many things behind because they did not utilize space in the truck very well. When I reached my destination I found a lot of scratches on furniture due to it not being secured well. I would not recommend using this outfit to anyone .
Mr. Vanover and his crew showed up exactly on time. They were courteous, polite and extremely professional! I had hired Helpful Movers to load my moving truck for me. I had an unexpected cancellation from the people who were helping me move large heavy items to my storage unit (including a piano) before Helpful Movers arrived.…Read More Mr. Vanover and his crew loaded my truck, went with me to my storage unit, unloaded it, then came back and loaded the truck again with the items I was taking cross country! I CANNOT say enough good things about them! My only regret was not having them with me at my destination to help me unload again! They are AWESOME!!
Faizon and Deandre took care to cover every piece of furniture and pad around void areas. They amazed us by fitting so much into a PODS container. They were also very patient with our hovering and attentive to our suggestions about how we wanted things done. We would use them again. They called to say they would be a bit late bu…Read Moret jumped right into the moving process.
I had a two bedroom townhouse - not a lot of stuff. Still, the movers managed to take 5 hours to load and unload our belongings. I know it was hot, but they were incredibly slow. I have a heart condition and asthma, but I could have did the job in less than 5 hours
The two that came in and did 95% of the actual working and moving of items were excellent! Worked hard, polite, took great care of my 'stuff', made maximum use of space I had. The 'team leader?' - not sure if that was his title, I hardly saw, he left for some unknown reason the majority of the time and did not communicate wi…Read Moreth me other than when it was time to pay the bill
Although they were 20 minutes late (traffic,) they hustled once they got here. They unloaded the PODS in less then half an hour. They were gracious about transferring some items to a van and following me to unload them at another location. All accomplished is just over an hour. Good job!
Helpful Movers saved me when my other moving company cancelled on me the day of my move. They came out within a few hours of my request. They loaded the truck quickly, efficiently and organized the truck to make sure nothing would shift during the trip. 400 miles later nothing moved in the truck. I would hire these guys again an…Read Moreyway!
Great experience all the way, the team was friendly, patient, courteous and easy to work with! They worked hard on moving the heavy speakers carefully and with care. Even the trash was picked up at the end of loading to clean up the place. Highly recommended and a pleasure to work with!
They were a hours late, very sloooow, and, didn't really know how to load a truck ... We walked the house, they still didn't follow instructions, and, had to be told what to do and how to do it -- Again, I believe they were slow, on purpose, so, they could get extra hours of work ...

Helpful Movers: The three men that came to help us move were on time and very helpful. I cannot say enough about how they were that day. they worked extremely hard and were very helpful.

Damus and his team were on time, and worked on-stop until I was fully moved into my new apartment.

I'd definitely recommend them to someone who needs help w…Read Moreith their move.
They were very professional and they worked very hard and quickly. They respected my property and I would recommend them again for sure. They were a little late, but they did call and let me know they were caught up in traffic, which I greatly appreciated, no excuses. Well done and I would recommend them anytime.
My dad sold our family home in MI and I live in Chicago. We had arranged for a one way u-haul truck to transport about six pieces of furniture, boxes, pictures and other misc items to Chicago. What we did not plan for was how heavy the items would be. The day before we were to drive back to Chicago, I did a search and found t…Read Morehis service. Within in minutes, we had helpers scheduled for loading in MI and unloading in Chicago. It was so incredibly easy. Both sets of helpers were on time and professional and handled the antique furniture with care. The payment option is also easy. After the job was completed, after a few text exchanges, the funds were paid. I will recommend this service in the future.
Very satisfied with the service, the helpers arrived at the time expected and were in touch with me prior to their arrival. The team immediately started the job and worked out how to pack the truck despite all the items from a 3 bedroom house being in a storage unit that was packed full, all items fit into a 26' truck requiring…Read More only one trip. The team systematicy moved all items into our house placing them where directed with no issues. A very professional, and hard working team !
I contacted hire a helper again after having an initial experience that was far less than what it should have been. My wife and I decided to give hire a helper another chance and in doing so, we found a company that completely blew me away. From the start, the owner was accomdating as we drove through the night to our new home. …Read MoreThe 2 men were there waiting for us and they were courteous and attentive and asked me at every step were the boxes go. After the stress we endured with the first movers, these gentleman knew their job and performed admirably. They were fast and half way through the move in, the owner stops by with an extra mover and provides this gentleman at no charge to help expedite the move. What!!! As a sales professional with over 20 years experience, this was a textbook example of superb service and why we will use these gentleman again. Bravo to the owner!
Helpful Movers was on point! They came on time, they were well prepared, they work extra hard because I had so many junk to load and unload. Great Job! When I told them these boxes/items are Fragile, they were extra careful. Of course I would recommend and pay for their service again.
After being stood up by another company, Helpful Movers stepped up and took the job on very short notice. They were punctual and extremely polite. I had a LOT of stuff to load on the rental truck, and they did it. The movers were professorial hard working individuals who took the time to care for my belongings.
The help showed up and instead of two, there were four helpers. This should be a good thing, but it wasn't. Their team leader had an attitude issue. I would certainly not hire him again. However, he seemed like the only person who had a slight idea about what needs to be done. The rest of the team just dumped our furniture into …Read Morethe containers. The process took a long time, because lack of expertise on part of the movers resulted in us having to unload and reload containers several times. Eventually, movers were unable to fit all of our furniture into the containers, because they had wasted so much space. We decided to thank them and let them go before more harm is done. We ended up spending a few hours to unload one container entirely and then were able to fit everything inside. Horrible team. They may be good people, but as movers, I will never hire them again. And the team leader needs to work very seriously on his attitude issue. The worst part was I had to tip them for four, not for two. So that was an additional $100.
They had no clue how to pack a moving truck!! I keep finding broken items!!! The list is increasing and I will be filing for damages!!! It tock the 7 hours and they didn't complete the job. My neighbors helped me unpack a quarter of the truck and repack it!! I found over $700 of firearm supplies and a $200 shotgun barrel they ne…Read Morever loaded!!! I would use them again if I was Dead!!!!
Although they did a good job and we tipped them for their work, they tried to scam their way to a free meal. The move was in a Senior Apartment that has a central cafeteria. After the move was completed, they went to the cafe and asked to get a free meal. The policy there is that non-residents have to pay $5 each. They said …Read Morethat they only had $2 which was a lie because of the tip we gave them. The other mover left the room and came back and tried again to get a meal by saying that the manager told them it was OK. The kitchen staff knew that wasn't the case. Lie # 2. They then came back to us and complained that the cafe charged them $10 which was lie #3. While their work was good, their actions afterward were appalling and created a very bad impression with everyone.
We had them come to work on Father's day so they were a bit late but well within the window of the original arrival time. The workers were polite and very hard working and finished everything we asked for early. I would use them again.
Helpful Movers really stepped up to the plate. While in Detroit over the Memorial holiday we had to do a last minute next day move. Helpful Movers came and did an outstanding job. They were prompt, courtesy and took their job very seriously and this took the pressure off of us. We will definitely us them again if ever we need…Read More movers in the Detroit area.
They came ready to move, and were very professional. They were motivated and put me at ease. We ended up having to make two trips though, and halfway through the time I think they got tired. After about three hours we came back for the second load, and I did feel sort of rushed. They seemed like they wanted to hurry up, and they…Read More did leave an hour and a half early. They arrived around 2:25pm and left at7:00pm. That bothered me a little but I could tell they were over it and wanted to be done so I didn't say anything. I still say they did a good job, and would reccomend for the price but I still paid for the six hours. They just told me to move the tv's and the glass from my tables and the mirror, myself so it wouldn't break(but I had moving pads) then they sort of just threw the boxes on the truck. It was different than when they first got there at that point. I guess because we had two trips, but I only moved ten minutes away and I also tried to help move smaller things myself. They were good, not excellent. And I would probably still use them again because it was a lot cheaper than most moving companies. they acted very professional and also had a good sense of humor which I liked. I think they were just tired at the end. The supervisor guy was the best one. He was really good. The quiet one was pretty good and the other guy was kinda lazy at times. I guess since I had three not two guys that more than made up for that. Still over all I say four out of five stars.
They are very jolly, and upbeat people. Very professional. I felt very safe. But make sure to dismantle and take the drawers out of your furniture so they are not too heavy for them to carry. Otherwise, too heavy furniture might get ruined. They might be able to lift heavy furniture but it might get ruined or break a joint. Also…Read More make sure to wrap shrink wrap around your delicate big furniture item to keep them safe. Just my 2 cents.
Considering this was last minute, flexibility appreciated. I contracted for 2 men but was sent 3 - did not know that was going to happen. Worked out OK as my crew leader said they kept all 3 men busy. 2 of the men were good. One was Ok. Overall good review - I would use them again. Thanks.
I had a great experience with Helpful Movers. I was moving furniture around in my house in preparation for showing it for sale. I had two large, heavy pieces of furniture that needed to be moved. In particular, the sofa bed was in a tricky situation -- it needed to come out of a small office (with a small doorway) and go into…Read More a larger room in the other end of the house. I was able to hire Helpful Movers on the same day I needed them. My guys were very professional, polite, and respectful of watching out for newly painted walls and tight corners. They were on time, well prepared and very efficient. I would absolutely recommend them and I will definitely call on them again!
The two helpers who handled my move were exceptional!They were responsive to phone calls, arrived early, were prepared and were careful in moving my furniture. I would not hesitate to use them again, and would certainly recommend them to others. They were also polite and courteous. I could not be happier. Anthony J. Rusciano
Wow - these guys know how to pack a truck! We did a hybrid move from one state to another. They finished packing earlier than expected. They were friendly, positive, encouraging, and they knew what they were doing. Took the stress out of the move! All arrived safely thanks to how they packed the truck.
Helpful Movers were on time and quick. They were a little chatty, but definitely asked questions on where to unload and how to move things. The only drawback, they didn't double check the time paid for, so I had to request a refund for the correct time. Other than that, they did a good job!
The 2 men were on time, ready to go and very helpful. I wish we had called them much earlier in the moving process. They were nice, respectful, ready to do what was asked and hard working. I am so glad we made this call - it helped us so much!
They were on time and ready to work hard! They had the job done in no time, and even the largest heaviest pieces that had to go up and down stairs were successfully placed!

This was a fabulous experience for me. Guys called to say traffic was heavy and might be a couple mins. late, but in end they were early.

They were a half hour late; they spent about 15 mins trying to jam the couch through the back door when they'd already determined the front door was plenty wide enough - then did damage to the door because of forcing the couch through; one had on very loose sweat pants that fell to his knees several times. Unprofessional! They …Read Moreworked fairly hard, although didn't always read the clearly marked labels and put the boxes in the wrong rooms - fairly typical of movers in general, I'm told.

Helpful Movers was great! DiMarco & Quentin did a fantastic job of moving all of my very important "stuff". They showed up, were ready to roll and did the job quickly and efficiently. They did not damage anything. They were careful, polite and very professional. I highly recommend them. You'll be happy you did!
First thing the girl from hire a helper was amazing she was a joy to talk to and I would do business with that company again just because of the service I recieved from her I wish I knew her name she needs a raise!! BUT.......

They has my tv's packed into the truck just sitting on top and unsecured at all and now my big television dosent work properly. I'm sure I could find so many more things to report it was the absolute worst experience I've ever had in my whole life my friends actually had to unload everything that they loaded to reload the truck, I had furniture they said would fit on the truck and I needed to leave behind but by some miracle everything was fitting fine including the furniture they left outside and the things in my house once my friends unpacked the horrible job they did and re packed EVERYTHING! There was NOTHING professional about those movers I am so upset and the things they broke are missed a lot now my 55 inch tv sits on the floor cause they broke it, and to top it off it didn't get broken in the drive of the move cause I never actually drove anywhere cause for reasons that I don't need to mention I didn't end up moving so all my property was broken and the truck never even left my driveway. The worst movers I have ever dealt with in my life!!! I would like to be reimbursed on the waste of money I spent hiring peoe to break up everything I owned!!! Very angry, Kathleen Gilmore Michigan
