They did a great job packing the PODS container. They were on time and had all the tools and furniture trucks ready. They worked hard all day. The only problem was that they arrived without rope or moving pads, despite paying extra through the website and then confirming this over the phone with the moving company before the day…Read More of the move. They refunded me the money, but the miscommunication added some unneeded stress. I would hire them again.
John and Chris (I think) did an amazing job. Took longer than budgeted but we had far more stuff than we realized. They stayed until it was all loaded and the load secured. They work hard and took their job seriously. Arrived exactly on time. Treated the property respectfully. Highly recommend!
Communication was on point, they were prompt on arrival, very friendly, and worked hard. They maintained a positive attitude despite several flights of stairs, challenging furniture, on and off rain, and going over schedule. I would recommend their services!
We could not say enough good things about John Onefeather's The Works Services. They were very competent, courteous, energetic, and detailed-oriented... worth every penny.

We would definitely use them again and highly recommend John and The Works Services. Thank you!
The Works Services did a fantastic job of loading my 2 PODS. They arrived on time and were totally prepared. They clearly had a lot of experience with PODS, because they loaded them like a Tetris puzzle and used every cubic foot of space. I would not hesitate to use them again and highly recommend them.
My order for two helpers was confirmed. On the day they were supposed to start, John called an hour or so before their start time of 10:30 and rescheduled to 12 noon. At 11:55, John called again and started they were stuck in heavy traffic and wouldn't arrive for another 45 minutes. They showed up and it started out fine, but t…Read Morehen I soon noticed a marked decrease in movement. I kept asking them if they would be done in the three hours I had paid for. They kept telling me they would make it. When their three hours was up, I was left with a Uhaul that still had approximately 40 boxes left to unload.
They called to confirm. They arrived on time and were friendly. They worked quickly, professionally, and packed better than anything we could’ve done ourselves. They finished early and we cannot say enough wonderful things about how much help they were for our family!
On time. We did a walk around to see what all was involved. They went right to work and hardly slowed down. Very respectful of belongings. Went over scheduled time and unfortunately one man had family emergency and they had to leave before job was done. They helped make sure all the heavy stuff was loaded before leaving. I’d use…Read More them again.
The Works team were on time , respectful of our belongings and to us. They had a hard job walking a long distance back and forth from the POD to the apartment , up and down a SLOW elevator AND carrying a heavy, 8 foot couch up stairs to the second floor ! As it rained the whole time, they kept our belongings dry and protected.
They were an hour late arriving BUT they called and apologized and let me know. Once on site they worked non-stop. We went 2 hours over the original time just because we have so much more stuff than we realized. They were accommodating and continued working hard the entire time. We had no issues with damage and they were ver…Read Morey respectful of our things. Great job, and I would use them again.
Arriving at the specified time and well supplied with any materials needed, these two men are some of the hardest workers we have ever come across. They were professional in every aspect and were respectful of our property. They actively looked for things to do, never standing around. At the end of two hours they were working as…Read More hard and fast as their first trip up and down the stairs. Highly recommend this more than capable pair! We will be using again.
I couldn’t say enough good things about these guys! They were on time, worked very hard, and got done way quicker than I had thought. They were very thorough, caring about the belongings, and courteous during the entire move. Thanks again guys!!
John and Jeremy were conscientious, hard workers who were easy to deal with and willing to help in a less than straightforward move. We had to take the jumbled contents of a storage locker and decide what was going and what was staying. They were very patient throughout the whole process and showed a lot of skill in their work
My sister, Kathryn Earle, was very, very happy with their work and their personalities. "Really nice guys," she said. "I like them." So, thanks, fellows, for taking care of my sister. On Time, Prepared, worked hard, respectful in every way, definitely recommend them to others. Gary Hickernell
We realized we'd bitten off a bit more than we could chew trying to unload the U-Haul trailer by ourselves. We called hire-a-helper at 5 p.m. on a Saturday, and they were able to get The Works Services out to unload it on the same day. The movers were courteous and professional, and they did a great job! They even made friends w…Read Moreith our dogs! Nothing damaged, everything brought in super fast, and they even brought our mattress upstairs to our bedroom from the ground floor where we'd dropped it after giving up trying to unload it ourselves. If you need movers, give these guys a call!
These two men were spectacular.....extremely hard working, careful (not a scratch in the process), timely, courteous , and clearly experienced. It was a pleasure to watch them work. Without hesitation or doubt, I would recommend them and use them again. Chris Greer
John and Jeremy communicated well prior to their arrival so I knew that they had my job on their radar and when they would arrive. They called again the morning of the job to inform me of their ETA. They were prompt, worked efficiently as a team, were very respectful of me and my belongings. They had good energy and were very pl…Read Moreeasant to work with. I would recommend them to friends and will utilize their service again when I need help with moving. Top notch! Call them. You'll be glad you did.
The two gentlemen, arrived on time and introduced themselves and after giving them the directions as to where everything was to go they went to work. They stayed at it until my pod was completely emptied. They finished short of the time I had scheduled them for. They were on time (called 25 minutes before arriving), they were…Read More prepared to work, worked very hard, very careful with our things and property and yes I would use them again

Communication prior to the unloading was outstanding with calls both …Read Moreto confirm the date for unloading plus to confirm arrival time. We definitely recommend John and Carter for any moving assistance that others may need. Carol and Jack, Olympia WA
They were fast, polite, on time, etc. However, they forgot which boxes contained vinyl records. I didn't want those crushed. Yet, twice I found the vinyl records placed on the dolly underneath very heavy boxes. Also, I would have liked it if they had kept more of the boxes right-side-up. Most boxes weren't marked "this side up,"…Read More so it wasn't their fault, but still I would have liked it if the boxes were kept right side up instead of on their side. (I had taken more care in packing them for transport and storage right side up.)
On Friday afternoon I booked services for first thing Tuesday morning...the day after Labor Day. I wondered if they would acknowledge and show up. 2 Hours later they acknowledged, and showed up on time! Thanks for supporting us last-minute folks! John and Chris did the job well, with a smile, and went above and beyond when t…Read Morehey saw the need.
Three strong young men arrived, ready to do whatever was needed. They were efficient, worked hard, brought all the necessary tools, paid attention to not harm either the furniture or the house, and packed the PODs so well, it was amazing. I will definitely hire them again to unpack.
Called to let us know when they'd be arriving. Had all the necessary equipment. Did a fantastic job Loading our first POD. Second POD wasn't as tightly packed because of the nature of all the loose "stuff". Still that got everything we needed and most all the optional stuff too. Very impressed with their packing ability. It was …Read Morehot and humid, but they had a friendly hard working attitude. Would recommened them them and would use them again!
if I could give Derek and Josh 10 stars, I would. These two fellows worked harder than anyone else I have ever seen. They were on time and prepared to dive right in. It was a hot day to load a 26 foot truck but they were upbeat and efficient. These two guys got more into this truck than we ever thought it could hold. They are…Read More definitely master puzzle makers because they made everything fit and nothing got damaged and there were no damages on the unloading end. I would hire this company again in a heartbeat!
Ok for real, the three guys who showed up to load my pod were AMAZING. AMAAAAAZING. I couldn't possibly be more satisfied. Not only did they work quickly and come in under the 3 hour window, but the way they packed the pod and maximized space is the only reason that everything fit in there. I wish I could have the same team show…Read More up to unload me at my new address but it's 2500 miles away. :) THANK YOU SO MUCH YOU GUYS!!!
John and Pete arrived at the expected time and worked like demons for an hour and a half to fill the 16 foot POD in our driveway. They were very careful of all the furniture as they passed thru doorways. They wrapped all the wood furniture pieces with the pads I provided, and plastic covers for all the soft furniture...beds, …Read Morechairs, couch. Their spacial knowledge was excellent so that they could load the POD efficiently . And they were personable and polite. I would definitely use them again...hopefully to move everything back after the remodel.
John One Feather was very good at communication the day before and the day of the move. They showed up on time.They were patient and understood that moving is stressful. I would use this service again. Thank you for being all that you said you would be on line.....
I have to say that these two young men did an awesome job....the only problem is that they charged me for an hour that they did not work....they did the work in the hired two hours but then I see an additional charge and was really surprised....sorry they had to pad the bill on this one...I really enjoyed visiting with these guy…Read Mores....so sad....do not use these guys again....
Derek and Andre are without question the best movers I have ever used. They know how to treat your furniture(Stickley) and how to pack a truck. I have moved on average every three to five years for the past thirty, so lots of experience in moving.
This team demonstrated incredible organization, expertise and knowledge in loading our pods. They were professional, efficient, careful of our property and household items. We have moved a number of times and this team rates at the top of our experiences. We highly recommend them.
These guys were great! Both helpers arrived prepared and ready to help from the moment we greeted them. Very professional, polite and respectful of our stuff and worked extremely hard to unload our POD within the 2 hours we had booked-- not an easy task since stairs were involved. Would definitely recommend them and will use t…Read Morehem again for our next move.
The gentlemen who unloaded my U-Haul were way cool. They were flexible with my needs and got there when I wanted them to get there. The entire 26' truck was unloaded faster than I could keep up with. There was absolutely no standing around for these guys, and they maneuvered large, heavy furniture up stairs at odd angles in a…Read More timely manner with zero complaints. In fact, there were compliments on our furniture here and there when time permitted. Each time they set down a piece of furniture that needed assembled, they offered to assemble it. They unloaded a brand new washer/dryer and offered to install it for me. They unboxed brand new furniture and packed up the garbage for us, then told us where the closest waste disposal location was and what their policies are. They offered recommendations on quality furniture retailers in the area. I could not be happier with the service. I don't even want to think about the next time I'll have to move, but when the time comes, I hope I can find these dudes again.
The Works Services 2 man team was great! They came on time, carefully carried our bedroom set and over 40 boxes up a whole flight of stairs to our Condo, They also assembled our 2 beds for us. Everything done in 2 hours. We would gladly use them again.
The team arrived on time, worked quickly to unload the truck and were very helpful with putting together furniture when we finished unloading the truck. They worked very hard despite the rare hot Seattle summer day. They were also very courteous when we told them the wrong room for a particular box and they gladly moved it to th…Read Moree right spot. We got so much done so fast thankfully to The Works Services team.
The team was on time, hard working, and prepared for the job. They got everything into my PODS container securely. When we had a problem on our end with our moving truck (not their fault), they helped call around and try to find a replacement truck to allow us to continue with our move plans. And finally, when no one could locat…Read Moree a replacement truck (extremely busy weekend), they helped ensure that all our remaining things were well wrapped and packed so that we could proceed more smoothly once our plans got back on track. They helped remove A LOT of stress from an otherwise disaster weekend. Thank you so very much!
John OneFeather and his crew arrived on time and were extremely helpful loading my POD container. They worked very hard and got the job done in less time than was anticipated. John's organization skills and ability to get everything in the POD was truly amazing...and I wouldn't want to compete against him while playing Tetris! …Read More:) If needed, I would hire them again without hesitation!!
We moved from out of state and ended up arriving two hours later than originally planned. I reached out to John and we were able to reschedule for later in the day. They showed up and did an awesome job. They were quick and careful. I recommend them.
On time, called to touch base the night before and when they were on the way. The guys worked hard and fast, and were extremely helpful with putting together furniture and fitting in items that didn't make it through the door. Very courteous - would hire again in a heart beat. thank-you!
The crew showed up on time and ready to work! They were extremely polite and professional, and immediately went about organizing and protecting my belongings; as I was packing/loading for a long-distance trip a well as storage, this was of utmost importance to me. They completed the job on time, and I was very happy with the ent…Read Moreire experience. I highly recommend them.
John and his helper were one time and worked to maximize all of the time I'd requested. They were able to complete far more than I originally "planned" for them to do. Without their help, I would have struggled to move and load items into my storage unit. They were outstanding. I'd definitely use them again.
John and Derrick worked incredibly hard from start to finish of the job. They arrived promptly on the job. They helped us break down the larger pieces (bookcase and dining room table), and took down our mounted television from the wall (huge job!). They were able to load all of our belongings into one 16' container, allowing us …Read Moreto return the other container we'd reserved. They didn't stop for breaks or even for a bottle of water (even though I offered water several times). They handled our belongings with care, and were extremely respectful of our property. I couldn't have asked for a better result. I would absolutely use them again in a heartbeat!
John called me the day before my move for confirmation. They arrived on time and took a tour of my home to assess the items to be packed in our 28ft trailer. The team of three movers carefully dismantle our big furniture and wrapped each piece in moving blankets and moving wrap. I had to purchase more blankets and wrap two ti…Read Moremes. I underestimated the amount of stuff we? accumulated over the years but the guys stayed 4.5 additional hours to complete the job. This is a great team of movers that I recommend.
I had two workers helping me. They were on time and had equipment of their own with to help with the move. It was obvious that they had lots of experience moving people and were respectful of my property. They were VERY HARD WORKERS!!! These guys literally ran at times and did not waste a moment. Definitely got my monies wo…Read Morerth! I would recommend them and would definitely use them again.
Absolutely great company. Excellent correspondence (by email and phone) leading up to the date they were helping us move, and they were courteous, and extremely mindful as they were loading up our furniture. The loading/moving took longer than the requested 2 hours and they had no problem staying longer to finish the job. (Of…Read More course I was charged the extra time but I was aware that would be a cost if the job ran over.) . I recommend them wholeheartedly. Well done gentlemen!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about John and his crew. Moving is already stressful, but I believe I had a particularly stressful day when the Pod container I ordered to arrive on Saturday morning was not able to be delivered to my new place. I had to scramble to find a moving truck to hire day-of, and unload the Pod to th…Read Moree truck at the storage facility in order to get everything to the apartment. While calling around to different moving truck rentals that were all sold out of everything except a 26' truck (I'm 5'4"...), the easiest call of the day by far was to John. I asked him if he was able to meet us at the facility in Des Moines instead of downtown Seattle, load the truck and then follow us to the apartment and unload it there, and therefore will probably need an extra hour or two. I thought the request was unlikely, but John said that would be no problem. He and Andre arrived at the facility EARLY (!!), loaded up the truck tightly for a 30 minute ride into downtown, and met us at the apartment. My first time moving into an apartment, I had completely forgotten to reserve the loading dock and moving elevator, and we had to wait for another moving crew to finish up before we could start unloading. John and Andre, instead of taking advantage of free hours on the clock, started taking up smaller items that they could carry without the moving elevator, patiently waiting for the only elevator that was available for use at the time (of course, of the two non-moving elevators, one was broken that day!). Once the other moving crew left, I accidentally hit the top of the moving truck trying to get it into the loading dock, and started panicking from the stress of it all. John and Andre helped me direct this giant truck through the tiny alley, telling me everything was going to be okay! Once set up properly, the guys made quick work, unloading the furniture and large boxes and even put boxes in the coordinating room. Already well past the original two hours (almost four hours by now, and almost 5pm-- they must have been so hungry and tired!), they even helped me set up my bed and couch and made sure I had everything moved to where I needed it before leaving. On a day that everything seemed to fall apart, these guys were absolutely my heroes. Again, I cannot recommend them enough. I have two friends moving to Seattle as well and have told them they have to hire them. Anyone reading this should have already made their decision by now! I cannot say enough good things about these guys. Thank you, John and Andre, for saving the day!!!
The crew was on time, helped us finish packing the odd items, and worked non-stop so that we actually finished a bit earlier then anticipated. They did an amazing job packing the container so tightly - there was no wasted space. Unfortunately we had more items then the container would hold and we needed another smaller container…Read More, To help us out they brought all of the excess items out of the house and into the garage so when we packed those items a few days later it was very easy, I would definitely use them again!
They did not pay attention to the stability of the loads. They damaged my dresser when it slid off their dolly and broke a chunk off the top right front corner about 2inches wide by 1 inch high about 1/2 inch deep. After they broke the dresser got careful for a couple trips but resumed taking unnecessary chances. They also cr…Read Moreammed one of our cardboard boxes into a space about 2inches narrower than the box crushing both ends. I don't think I would recommend this crew to anyone.
These movers did a great job. I booked them less than 24 hours in advance, and got a call to confirm within a half hour. They worked hard from the minute they arrived (on time) until they were finished. They had to carry several large heavy pieces of furniture up one and two flights of stairs, and did so very carefully to make s…Read Moreure they didn't damage the walls despite some tight fits. I highly recommend them.
These guys were great, friendly and hit the ground running as soon as they got on site. I only had one POD to fill, and waaaay too much stuff to fill it with. I told them the name of the game was Tetris and they went to work. They managed to fit everything in my POD with room to spare. I would absolutely recommend The Works Serv…Read Moreices for any of your moving needs.
Job details: two helpers for two hours moving roughly two+ rooms worth of stuff from a container into a second story apartment.

Very efficient and professional, highly recommended.
The two guys that came to help were GREAT. Under the circumstances, I was going through, they were respectful and professional. They showed up on time and they did everything I asked them to do. I wanted to give them a tip for all their hard work, but my purse got left at the last location. I felt bad that I had no money, check…Read Mores or cards to accommodate them for what they did for me. They totally understood and they were nice about it also. I would without a doubt use them again.
John and Derrick were amazing. John called me to confirm after I set up the appointment, he called a day or two before the service date, and he called the morning of. They arrived exactly on time. They were polite, professional, and very experienced. I had been very stressed out about this move and the loading of the POD, but on…Read Morece they started working I could see how good they were at the job. I did not think the POD was large enough but they were able to load it so well they got everything in it with room to spare - I could hardly believe it. It was worth every penny and I highly recommend them to anyone. I only wish these same gentlemen were available when it is time to unload the POD in another city.
I was over all extremely pleased with this moving company. Very professional and right on time. Very careful with all of my things and did a great job wrapping my big items like grandfather clock and curio cabinets. One thing was accidentally broken at the end of the day (a marble night stand top), but they were forthright…Read More in reporting this to me immediately and were sincerely apologetic.

The Works Services is truly a team of moving professionals led by Mr. John OneFeather. I hired them to move household goods from two 10x20ft storage units into a 5 bedroom house. A team of three movers completed the job in just under the estimated 6 hrs, and that's with a break for lunch that we provided them for their outstandi…Read Moreng work. They took their time to assess the household goods in storage and packed it professionally into the moving truck, taking care to use furniture pads to protect all the wood furniture and using every inch of space possible. Unloading took half the time, as John stayed on the truck to hand the items to the other two movers, and I directed them to the appropriate room in the house. It's a well-tuned operation, that made this move a breeze. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND John and his team at The Works Services. I'm prior military and I've had my fair share of moves, of which I hope this will be the last of more than a dozen moves over the last 20 years. I would say that John and his team have been THE BEST movers I've ever hired to date. Do not pass them up for the other guys, HIRE THEM TODAY!!! :)
The team arrived at the start of the arrival window. I booked three hours for the two person team to unload a large PODS storage unit (which was intentionally conservative because I didn't know what to expect for elevator availability). The team was fast, careful, and proficient. The storage unit was emptied in about half the…Read More time allotted time. They worked hard, respected the property as well as the apartment building and the other tenants. I would use them again.
Both of the helpers were considerate, caring and very conscientious on not tracking in leaves and mud on one of the rainiest days of the year. Not only were they efficient, they were literally at a trot up and down the 14 stairs the entire time. I offered them water to drink but they refused until they were done. This is a tr…Read Moreue indication of their commitment to not only doing the job, but doing it efficiently and quickly. I would definitely use HireaHelper again and will recommend them to others.
I was extremely pleased with the service provided by John and Derek. They were prompt, wiped their shoes when entering my home, and clearly knew how to load a truck. Booking was originally 3 hours, but I cut back to 2 hours. They completed the job in 1&1/2 hr. even after hiking up and down the 3 flights of stairs. I will cal…Read Morel them when I need to un-load the POD container.
I would highly recommended hire a helper! They are genuinely concerned about the customer!! I just moved and had a issue with the team that moved us. I contacted hire a helper with my concerns about having to pay for 7 hrs when the delays were caused by one of the movers being totally inexperienced and just following the team le…Read Moreader around asking what to do next and talking on his phone! Hire a helper spoke with the team leader and he confirmed it was the guys first day. Hire a helper then told the team leader they could only charge me for one person due to the inexperience of the second. IT'S VERY RARE FOR A COMPANY TO TRULY HAVE THE CLIENTS BEST INTEREST AT HEART BUT HIRE A HELPER DID! I am very grateful and I will Always use them for future moves!!!!
John and George worked tirelessly to unload our truck full of boxes and furniture. They staged the boxes in a way that we can get to them to unpack easily. They worked until the truck was done (paid extra hours charge happily) and were very easy to communicate with on moving day. Thank you for your hard work.
1. John OneFeather called me right after I ordered their service and then I texted him and then finally called him and left a message a few days before the move and he did not return call. 2. Did not feel that the POD was filled efficiently and that they could have gotten more on. 3. 3 men should have been able to fill a 16' P…Read MoreOD and put maybe 6 lg pieces on another truck in 2 hours. We had to hire them for another hour and it was then that they just threw stuff on, severely dented our file cabinet and was so rough with our boxes I'm not sure what I'll find when I get the POD. Finally they just put some baskets loosely in the tail end of the POD and called it good because they were out of time again. I pulled out the baskets and most of the last layer and put 7 more boxes and the baskets in. We asked them to put heavy stuff in and we have many heavy items in storage that really needed to go on the POD.
Overall the movers did a great job once they got here! They were respectful of my belongings and made sure they assembled my furniture correctly. I gave a 4 star only because they were 2.5 hours late....the job ahead of me ran later than expected. If i didnt have a friend with me, this wouldve been a major issue, but luck was on…Read More my side and Im (and my friend) not afraid to get my hands dirty so the job still got done with extra muscle from us and a lot later than expected. They did bring along an extra helper which reduced the amount of time needed by 1 hour. Despite the time issue, they did a good job!
Thanks for making it so easy! Great work, careful, and quick. Very courteous and professional! When my storage cubes arrived earlier than anticipated they were willing to come earlier than scheduled and get everything unloaded right away. Couldn't be happier w the job they did!
Outstanding job! John contacted me before the job and the day of to let me know when they'd arrive. They were very punctual, worked hard and did an excellent job getting everything in without a single problem. I can't recommend them enough! Very happy with the entire job and process, start to finish.
John and and his team worked very efficiently and quickly.

I am truly impressed with the team that assisted me in packing my PODs. I didn't know what kind of labor was going to show up, so I was pleasantly surprised to have such a polite, hard working and professional team to work with. They were even better packers than I am. Many additional thanks to the lead worker, John.
My HireAHelper team arrived right on time and jumped right in on the job. They were very kind and polite. They worked super hard, and really didn't need my supervision. John, was awesome and had a great understanding of what needed to be done, and got it done. I was truly impressed. I will be using them again for sure.
They kept in touch regarding when they would come and showed up on time. They moved furniture into and then out of my basement while the inside of my house was painted. They worked efficiently and carefully, without bumping the walls. They were polite and professional. I look forward to hiring them again.
The guys from The Works were the best. Prompt, professional, organized, efficient, careful and courteous. We couldn't have been happier with their service. We feel much more relaxed about the next unloading job we already have scheduled with them. Kudos to The Works Services and John OneFeather & his hard working crew.
Amazing work completed with two professional and very kind individuals. I believe we worked with The Works Services with John OneFeather. They worked with us to unpack our 7x7 POD. They arrived on time and had everything upstairs in our second floor apartment in 1.5 hours! They treated all items carefully and respectfully. I wou…Read Moreld definitely work with this company again. No complaints - worth every penny!
John and his partner were right on time and came prepared. They worked hard and efficiently until the job was completed, and finished within the 2 hour time frame. They were very careful with both furniture and boxes, and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely use them again.
I hired two workers for three hours to fill my 12 foot and 7 foot pods, they were wonderful, they arrived on time ready to work and hustled for the full three hours finishing just on time. They were both very nice and respectful and courteous and I do plan to hire them again when it is time to unpack my Pods.
Guys were on time and worked hard at filling the 16' container. They were unable to get everything in but that was due to the Pack Rat call center providing me with miss information. I plan to send Derrick and Andre a card to let them know how everything traveled once I have the container unpacked. Andre and Derrick were polite,…Read More informative and treated my possessions with great care. Appreciate the service. Sincerely, Ann Skidmore
We requested 3 guys for 6 hours, for a 4 bedroom and full garage move, starting at 1:00PM. They arrived very promptly, even a few minutes early, and by 1:03, there was already stuff being loaded in the truck! I walked them through the house quickly to show what was going and what wasn't, and they immediately got to work like lit…Read Moretle worker bees, all over the house super fast! John directed the truck loading, and if it weren't for him, I know we wouldn't have fit everything in the truck! In no time everything was loaded and we were on our way to the new house! When we got there, they started unloading right away while I directed traffic. When all was said and done, everything was in the correct room, and they were done an hour early, so the total bill was less than I had planned! When does that ever happen in life?! All three men were careful, courteous, and friendly! I highly recommend them to anyone planning a move!
The guys at The Works Services are amazing. This is the second time I've hired them! They are courteous, on time, and efficient. Being in the city we had U-Pack cubes and these guys expertly and carefully loaded up our furniture and boxes. I highly recommend them.
The Works Services promised me excellent service and proficient staff for my move. They absolutely went above and beyond their promise! They said they should arrive about 10am....they arrived at 10:01am! The crew of three,John, Andre, and Cameron immediately began working. They needed vary little supervision from me, and just to…Read Moreok charge! They were extremely careful with everything they moved and placed items as directed! They provided all of the moving equipment needed for the job! I scheduled the move for 3 hours and they were finished in 2 hours 45 minutes and that included all clean up! I will definitely use them again, and recommend them to everyone in need of excellent move services! Thank you to The Works Services group! Bob K. Bremerton WA.
The helpers, Andre and Jake, were on time; in fact, they asked to arrive an hour earlier, which worked great! They were well prepared, careful with the furniture and boxes and mindful of keeping things clean. Andre was a wizard with spacial problem-solving, managing to get quite large pieces through our tiny door without marri…Read Moreng walls or furniture. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends. Thanks, guys!
They were a couple of minutes late, but once there they did a fantastic job of moving our possessions into the U-Haul. They were careful and there were no marks in either the home we were vacating or the rental we were moving things into. John a couple of tricks up his sleeve and had the tools necessary to move a couple of heavy…Read More or bulky items. They did a really great job and I can't recommend them highly enough. Definitely a great value for your money, and careful and conscientious too!
The guys were outstanding and I would absolutely hire them again in the future. They arrived on time, were friendly, and managed loading my items into the truck with very little direction as they clearly know what they are doing. John and Andre worked consistently hard the ENTIRE time. All of my items were packed and loaded an…Read Mored made it safely without any damage. Even better, my new home has a narrow stairwell and they managed to get furniture, washer, and dryer up the stairs and around a corner without scraping the wall! I am extremely happy with the service they provided and highly recommend them!!!
These guys are phenomenal. Challenging move of dozens of large art pieces. Punctual, excellent attitude, treated the art as if it were their own, creative packers, worked hard/ fast and have helpful packing materials in case needed. Great stuff!
Thank you for a wonderful job with my bosses move last week! We were entirely disorganized and John and Andre were absolute pros at loading the household into the truck. Highly recommended for any size job. On top of the excellent work, the guys were on time, stayed an extra hour, and worked extremely hard! Thank you!!!
John and crew were fabulous. We had a short span to get the truck loaded and it was done with expertise and caring. 10 is not high enough of a score to say how well everything went. I would highly recommend this agency to get the job done. When we were unloading the truck it was apparent that expert knowledge was used in pac…Read Moreking and securing all items that were loaded. No damage to any items. A big plus.
We found HireAHelper through 1-800-PACKRAT as they are the moving container company we used (very happy with them so far btw). The agency that accepted the job sent 2 men, the lead man was John. These 2 men jumped in right away. Couldn't believe how they took over in terms …Read Moreof organizing the items to use every inch of the container as well as lifting all the very heavy items. They were very careful with using the moving blankets (I bought my own through the web). I had to make them take a break and have a snack and some water. Even then then they would take a sip of water and keep moving. They were here for a little over 3 hours and it was money very well spent. My husband was very happy with them. They were professional and handled our personal items with the care as if they were their own. I would definitely use them again for any future moves!!!
These guys came to work hard and once we told them what we wanted them to do they worked continuously without any let up. They treated our furniture with utmost care, were friendly and accommodated all of our requests. I was amazed how quickly we got done and I know it was due to their effort. I would definitely use them again a…Read Morend have no problem recommending them to others.
John and Andre from The Works Services arrived on time, were prepared for the job with tools in-hand, and did a fantastic job! They didn't waste any time and worked hard to get the job done.

Moving is stressful and our prev…Read Moreious service provider was not so great, (3-hrs late, slow, sloppy, not prepared, no tools) so we were somewhat nervous. We were very pleased and would have no hesitation recommending John and The Works Services.
John and Andre were amazing!!!! They worked very quickly and they pulled items down and out of the Relocubes for me (I insisted) to carry so I felt useful while they hauled all of the heavy things.

In the dark times, before The Holy Advent in which HireAHelper descended from the heavens to cleanse us of our sins, there was chaos. Verily, the cardboard boxes were sundered and the clutter spread like a plague across the land. The roar of the moving truck fell silent. There was much wailing and gnashing of teeth. Lo, like …Read Moreangels from above, John, Andre, and Dude-Whose-Name-Started-With-An-F-But-I-Forgot (DWNSWAFBIF) descended promptly and cordially in their golden chariot, a '94 Pontiac minivan. Trumpets sounded. Before the setting of this day's sun, they had emptied our storage vessels and stacked our goods neatly, with princely smiles. Women wept with joy. Babies smiled. Politicians told the truth. Verily I say unto you, dial the seven digits in holy prayer, for they shall be answered. Bless thine holy temple into which thou hast moved, for the divine gifts of HireAHelper are manifold and wondrous. Receive the sacrament of diligent hired labor, and rejoice. On time. Friendly. Worked hard as hell. Did a great job. Would definitely do it again.
These guys worked quickly and were very helpful about little extras like putting together some furniture and unwrapping stuff. They showed up on-time, used the reserved elevator and loading dock very efficiently. I would definitely use them again.
Received a call before my appointment from Andre introducing himself . The crew showed up on time and worked really hard. I moved from an apartment on the 3rd floor to the 3rd floor again. Never heard any complaints. I had a lot of heavy items including a mattress and 2 large hutches. The crew was well prepared and I would …Read Moredefinitely hire them again. Totally worth the money and they got the job done within the time frame I booked them. Job well done.
These two men were an absolute class act. Not only were they fantastic movers (everything arrived at our destination looking great) they involved my two teenagers (who absolutely helped at our encouragement) and they engaged my two toddlers - not an easy juggling act. I'd use them, and 'hireahelper' in a minute.
The two men who arrived to unload our POD were very polite, friendly and incredibly hard working. They did a very professional job and did so quickly, which was very much appreciated. Would recommend Hire a Helper in general and the two men who helped us in particular to anybody.
We were very pleased with these movers. They called ahead to let us know they were running about 15-20 minutes behind their scheduled arrival time. We had already boxed up our household goods, but they came prepared with plastic and tape to use on our larger furniture items. These gentlemen worked in a quiet, diligent manner and…Read More were very respectful of our belongings. They worked hard and showed care in bringing furniture down from the upstairs bedroom and from other rooms on the main floor. We're happy to note that after the long distance move, everything arrived in really good condition! We would absolutely use them again!
Andre and Derrick called 30 minutes B4 their arrival. They reviewed our goods to be moved and stored into a POD. I expressed concern about my two curio cabinets and they told me how they would wrap them and prepare them for storage. Their professionalism eased the worry in my mind. They brought their own dolly and hand …Read Moretruck to make the loading go faster. They were quick and efficient and knew what they were doing. Despite a flight of stairs down which everything had to go, they were careful with the furniture and the new hardwood floors. Nary a scratch or ding on any surface. In 3.5 hours they filled 12 feet of a 16 foot storage pod. All the large pieces of furniture were wrapped in the blankets PODs had given us. Everything was strapped down to avoid shifting during transport. They did such a great job of compacting the furniture and boxes into the POD that there is still plenty of room for us to store some additional items we thought we would have to sell or donate. The best job they did was moving a 200 lb. solid steel desk out of a small room, down a hallway, and then turn it around a corner to go down the flight of stairs. Not one single ding or scratch on any wall or floor. This feat of strength and dexterity is what really sealed my 5 star rating. I would highly, highly, highly recommend Derrick and Andre for any moving and packing job. Kerry - North Bend, WA
Andre and Terry finished unloading our 8x8x16 POD in under two hours. They arrived early and prepared with a dolly, drills, and other helpful moving equipment. They skillfully maneuvered my giant couch through a very narrow doorway without any hesitation. Terry hardly stood still for a drink of water in the 2 hours he was here. …Read More The workers didn't mind moving the same piece of furniture to another room when I changed my mind. They were courteous and considerate of placement (centered under the window, in the corner, etc) and asked me what I preferred while they worked. They were very conscientious of the walls and door jams. They rubbed the wall in three small spots at the base of the stairs and marked them with painters tape, showing their integrity not to hide any mistakes. Andre and Terry are a great team! Highly recommend!
Just moved to Tacoma. I booked them on the way to Washington, a day before we needed unloading services. It was easy to book the service and those 2 helpers who came were communicative about the schedule and some changes (traffic was bad and they were about to be late and they called us enough advance). Once they got here, they …Read Morewere quick! 2 hours was enough for 2 bed rooms apat. We recommend this company :)
The two men ( Andre and Terry) who helped load our POD did an awesome job! They had everything loaded in only 1hr and 15min, and were very strategic and careful when loading our POD. They were professional, courteous, and timely, plus they didn't make you feel guilty for speaking up if you wanted something that was already loade…Read Mored padded more/differently etc. Would definitely recommend this crew, it was the least stressful move we have had yet! We even checked out of our rental home earlier than planned. Thanks guys!
Jimmy and Bubba were friendly, competent movers and did a great job unloading our pod. They went the extra mile to make sure we were happy with their services. The rate was competitive and they arrived 5 minutes early! We highly recommend The Works Services fir your move.
John and his coworker did a great job. They did not seem to have any problem moving the heavy furniture I down my relatively tight stairs. They were so fast they had time to move a few more large pieces of furniture I originally planned to move myself. Their GPS did not find my address, but they arrived quickly after I gave t…Read Morehem directions over the phone. Also, they partially repacked what I already had in the Pod so that everything fit together better. They used some old linens and towels I had to protect the furniture from scratches. They were very professional, courteous, and needed little direction from me to get the job done.
They were on time, I was not. I did a bad estimate of how long it would take to load furniture in a moving truck. They worked 2.5 hrs more without complaint. They were both very nice men, worked hard, past dinnertime and I would recommend them to anyone.
These guys were awesome. In 2 hours the had pretty much everything loaded in the truck and saved me from going up and down the stairs 500 times. They packed the 15 foot uhaul like Tetris and used up just about every inch of space. Highly recommend. Thanks again guys for all your help.
Arrived at my house on time. Friendly and fast working . I would have needed them a little longer but they said they could not :-( that is the only minus I have to point out. Was a great help bringing the heavy pieces and furniture upstairs. I helped them putting boxes out of the container. Both were hard working . Overall …Read MoreI was very pleased with them.
John is very professional and honest man of few words.

I was in a tuff predicament. The helpers I had hire thru. another site, did not show or answer their phone.

We had to reschedule with them twice due to a delay in the arrival of our POD that was communicated to us very late on the day it was originally supposed to arrive. Thankfully they were very willing to make last minute changes. Once they were finally able to come help unload the work went very quickly. We couldn't be more thankf…Read Moreul.
John and everyone did an outstanding job. I had a beast of a desk with a thick granite top. They were not going to let this desk beat them. Some problem solving and they got the desk down from the second floor to the awaiting PODS container with no damage to them or property. Good job!
This rating applies to the helpers on Oct 3 only. It appeared that the helpers who helped on Oct 3 did a good job. However, after unloading and unpacking things we noticed that a Bang & Olufsen radio was missing! We checked with the new owners of our previous residence and nothing was left in the house. The helpers who helped on…Read More Oct 1 had asked me where I wanted the radio and I had answered I did not know yet, maybe I would put it in the car. After that the radio never showed up any more, and I did not think about it, because we were in a hurry to get everything loaded. Fact is the radio did not show up at our destination, and I leave it up to your imagination what might have happened to it. I got in touch with the foreman of the Oct 1 team, but apart from his announcement to talk to the helpers, I have not received an answer. Also we offered the first helpers material to pad sensitive objects, like paintings and furniture, which they did not use. In retrospect I must change my judgment of the first helpers. They took way too long to start out and they did not have a good assessment of how much space they would have to use. They spent almost an hour to needlessly stuff things into sideboards, while in the last hour they were in a hurry to put things into the truck with some reasonable order. They spent a quarter hour on the phone with their foreman, who showed up, took the dolly they had brought, so for the most heavy items they had to use my own dolly even though it was way too weak for the purpose. They also charged for an extra half hour after they had wasted a quarter hour talking on the phone. I hope that HireAHelper will get in touch to have this issue clarified.
wow....can't believe they fit it all in the pod....excellent packing skills and wonderful attitude. Hopefully everything will still be in place after the pod travels to the east coat, but it sure looks good from this end. John & Mike were just great, on time and it took them exactly 2 hours to pack a 16 foot pod as quoted
Guys did a great job. Showed up on time, worked their butts off, and packed our Pod very compactly and efficiently. Very pleased. Be forewarned that if you book for 4 hours and they finish in 2, you still pay for 4. Since they worked so hard we didn't mind.
Who knew hiring a company to load 3 Door -to- Door moving containers in my driveway could be such a pleasant experience.... I love nice surprises and this morning was certainly one of these. John and his co-worker were both pleasant and very efficient, super fast and took care with my belongings, loading more into the containe…Read Morers than I had ever thought possible..... I'm really impressed.... again, thanks so much guys, I'll be in touch when the time comes to unload. Bottom line, no worries when you hire "The Works" Bev 19 June 2014
They did a great job. They packed up our stiff, broke down our furniture and made a nice snug fit in my moving containers. They even worked through lunch! Please note a few extra things got packed, but that was mostly my fault for not providing clearer directions. I would recommend them.
John and Scott were wonderful! We called at the last minute due to an unexpected change in plans. They were on site within an hour, worked quickly, and handled each item with care. They knew we had a time constraint and worked efficiently to make sure the heaviest items were unloaded first.
Arrived on time, immediately got to work, and did not stop until the job was complete. Finished early and offered any related assistance such as assembling furniture.

There was a slight misunderstanding on the date of our move as I changed the original date booked. My fault. However, John and his crew made it all work out without too much stress on my part. They were late for the said job due to the misunderstanding but John showed up with twice the # of people I had booked for. All of them …Read Morecame prepared and were ready to get the job done. They worked fast and hard. Not one scratch or dent on any of the furniture. They were very efficient and competent. They moved so fast that they finished unloading 2 pods in less than half the time. Very nice folks. I will definitely use them again. To all of you who have any reservations about hiring The Works Services, I say not to worry. John and Chris will take care of you and your furniture!!
We hired The Works for 3 hours to help load our 3+ bedroom house into our moving truck. The owner John and his employee Chris were even better than expected. John was very matter-of-fact and professional; Chris was friendly and talkative. Both were obviously experienced and took their jobs seriously. They arrived right on time a…Read Morend walked through the house to see all the boxes and furniture to plan out what order to load in. From that point they took complete charge of the loading process, fitting everything together carefully and expertly. We happened to be moving on one of the rainiest days of the year, and John and Chris were very careful to wipe down the furniture in the truck so it wouldn't suffer any water damage. I had expected that my husband and I would be helping to load the truck, but they were so on top of things that we ended up spending the time boxing the last few items and cleaning up the house. They worked extremely hard without a break for the entire 3 hours, in the pouring rain, and managed to get the whole job done. Everything was so well packed that nothing shifted in transit. Very impressive, and very reasonably priced! We'd definitely use them again.
This was the unloading side of our move. The movers were on time, very careful with our things, worked hard, and did a great job. The only reason I've withheld a 5th star was that there was some confusion or misleading communication about who would be doing the work. We hired The Works to both load and unload our truck, and o…Read Morewner John and his employee Chris did an amazing job of loading the truck in the pouring rain (see my other review). At that time John was very clear that he and Chris would be the same people who would be helping us unload 2 days later, which I thought was great since they were such professionals. The night before the unload job John called to confirm, and again said that he would be seeing me the next day. But on the actual day of the job, 2 different employees showed up. Instead of the experienced John and Chris, we got 2 inexperienced young men (late teens or early 20s). I was actually momentarily worried that we were being scammed somehow, but I called John and confirmed that he had sent other workers. It wasn't a problem at all--unloading a truck is much easier than loading it, so I understand why The Works might use their more experienced staff on the loading side. And the workers were very careful not to damage our things, did an amazing job of not scraping doorways AT ALL, and were friendly and respectful. I would recommend them highly, and the price was extremely reasonable. But it would have been nice to get a call from the owner letting me know that plans had changed, rather than leaving me to be surprised and confused.
John and Chris were on time and prepared to unload our pod. They did a superb job unloading and placing everything just where I wanted it, even the very heavy pieces. They actually finished the job ahead of schedule, which was fine with us. We would definitely use them again.
The Works Services did a stellar job. They showed up exactly when they said they would and came prepared with the necessary equipment to do the job. They were friendly and respectful, and I plan to use them again very soon. Sincerely, Seattle customer Pam
I live in South New Mexico and had 2 storage units in Kent, WA. 1 was a 10X15 the other a 10X20.

I also had a few th…Read Moreings that are hard to pack, things like wheel borrow, 2 step ladders. To tell you the truth, I did not think all this stuff would in 1 24' Box Truck and was planning on renting another truck. I hired Mr John OneFeather and one of his helpers and I am glad I did. They were on time and worked very hard with loading the truck. I hired them for 8 hrs and the were done in 7 hes and even cleaned the storage units. Best part of all they got all my things to fit in 1, 24' box truck. I had talked with John on the phone before I flew to Seattle, I asked if he was willing to work 10 hrs if needed to load. He said YES. I drove 2000+ miles home and unloaded and not one thing was damaged. YES I would hired John again in a heartbeat. Finding workers like this today is a HARD to do. You will definitely get your monies worth hiring John....... . J R Saunders, South New Mexico
