They were prompt and had all the tools and equipment needed to get the job done. They unloaded 2 large pods for us and most of the time in a downpour. They covered what they could to keep it dry and not a thing was broken or wall damaged. Would definitely use them again.
My move was to unload my 26 foot rental truck full with my furniture and belongings into our first floor 2 bedroom condo. Both John and Kelly were great movers. They arrived within the expected arrival time and worked very hard. They had all of their own moving equipment like dolly's and such and were very careful with our be…Read Morelongings. I don't think they even took a break during the entire move which was a little over 2 hours in the SW Florida heat on May 17, 2018. We did not suffer any damages to any of our possessions. I would definitely recommend them and HireAHelper to anyone needing their services. We were extremely pleased with this move.
Completely Stellar!!! I had an 800lb hot tub to unload, the crew did it like a champ with no issues. Very professional crew, was prepared with all tools, put beds together, hooked up stack kits on a washer/dryer and hooked them up, they took extra special care of my items padding them up multiple stair cases.

They didn't stop until the job was done and were all very friendly and treated my items like their own!
They were exactly on time . Very careful with unpacking my POD. They completed the job in 2 hrs. They put my bed and table together and brought their own tools. Very friendly i would would use them again. Highly recommend A Plus moving and Hire A helper.
John and Kelly were awesome. They were prompt and worked so hard. My move was not easy - I had way more stuff than I thought would fit in the truck. John and Kelly managed to get every last thing in the truck. This meant really planning out how to fit it all in. I don't think most movers could have or would have done this. It w…Read Moreas like an extreme game of Tetris fitting it all in! They went way above and beyond to ensure we got all my stuff in the truck. It was almost a 5 hour job and they worked the entire time! I have since made it to my new location and everything made it safe and sound! I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone! You will not be disappointed.
John and Kelly were on time and very accommodating. They worked continuously without any breaks until the job was completed. John even went to get his tools to help me put together the dining room table. Two nice men and wonderful workers. We highly recommend them to anyone. Order number 527129.
Arrived on time. They had their own equipment. Worked very hard. Were respectful of our property. I would use them again. We had a stuffed apartment which was up a flight of stairs and they got our 16' truck packed tighter than I though possible. Almost none of our items were damaged in the move.

The head guy was great at what he does if you have tons of time. I told him I was only hiring him for two hrs and needed help mainly with the big and heavy stuff.

If I would have had my hand truck and furniture dolly on hand I would have fired him 15 minutes into this experience. I would never recommend this guy to anyone ever.Show Response
Why give 2 stars? Mad because I wouldn't stay for free after the first 2 hours. You don't pay we can't stay! Using my own employee against me to try and make a bogus point...this is an all time low. I won't be bullied because you think you hold some kind of power over me with this review. This guy NEVER mentioned for us to only deal with the large items. He never mentioned only large items and only got mad when his plan to try and get us to stay for free after the first 2 hours didn't work. I'd like to say what I really think of this guy but I'll keep it to myself. I'd like to also mention that in reality by his own admission that we got a lot loaded in the 2 hours we were there. How could we have only dealt with the large items when they were mixed and buried beneath the smaller items in his storage unit? Not to mention if we only loaded the large items everything wouldn't have fit in the truck.

They were prompt, fast and courteous. Thanks guys for the hard work.Show Response
Let me just start by saying thank you for the good review. After 21 years of being in a very hard business to be in I can still say I love what I do, how many people can say the same?

These guys were the best! They didn't skip a beat. Far surpassed my expectations. They didn't even stop to eat a bag of chips. Lol!!! I wish they could help me unload.Show Response
I must admit, I do love the chips! Cool ranch doritos of course. lmao!!!!. Thanks for the review.

PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW - I would have given a negative stars if the service would allow me to. I have used HireAHelper already twice in the last 3 months, and this was by far the worst service here. I received a call from the A Plus Moving the day prior to the appointment, and when providing the time window, they wanted somet…Read Morehing earlier - I'm sorry, that's not how it works. Upon arrival, the lead was arrogant, rude, and obnoxious. I knew how long it took the previous movers to handle my goods, and he said it would be twice that, and immediately became belligerent. He was touted his moving experience and threw my doormat to the side as to say, "I don't care what you think". I wasn't worried about the rug - It was the arrogance and disrespect to me, the customer, that absolutely ended the appointment. I told him if that is how it would be, he could leave - He then threw a cussing fit like a sailor at me (in front of my children) and slowly exited. This company should be steered clear of...Far away, even if it's your last option.Show Response
He was in fact the one with the attitude and he didn't ask us to leave I told him we were leaving! I don't put up with people disrespecting my crew or me on ANY Job! He started yelling at me because I moved his door mat out of the way...yes...a door mat. Let me further say that I've personally been on EVERY job that A Plus Moving has completed on this website except 1...Yes 1. So to say you believe this guys nonsense is to also say you don't believe the hundreds of other excellent reviews we've received. He's trying to take revenge because we walked away from a very disrespectful situation. Unfortunately there are people out there like him and I will not tolerate it!

Horrible service. The owner was u friendly and rude and sat in his truck eating his chips. Treated his workers like garbage and they actually did a better job than he did. This guy needs to get a new job!Show Response
Let me start by saying this person is mean spirited. She was rude on the phone to begin with and in spite of this she was given an excellent 2nd floor load with over 200' long carry AND a tough 2 story unload. She was obviously angry about things in her personal life and wants to take it out on me. She's probably mostly mad because she had a lot of stuff and had to pay 1 lousy hour above the minimum she chose which only equaled to a total of 4 hours. Also she tried to be sneaky and not pay the entire bill. Not 1 single thing got so much as a scratch on it. Nobody was eating chips all though I would've rather sat in my car than deal with her. Ate chips...Where do people come up with this?

Started kind of slow, but that wasn't their fault we didn't have a clear pathway for them, but once the path was set they did a great job. Very respectful and kind. Handled our stuff very carefully.

John was so amazing. He was at my house before I was there with the truck.

Thank you so much for your help Lois Slaughter
This was the absolute worst! First, they were almost two hours late. Then, the first item they brought up (the desk) they tore half of that right off. The man spent 30+ minutes trying to fix it with glue to cover his ass… But was unable to fix it. Then they brought up my mattress and tour the side of it. They sat around arguing…Read More with each other and shooting the **** longer than they actually were moving things, and they had the nerve to charge me an extra hour. At the end, The man knew I was upset, but he stood over me to make sure I submitted the payment and ok’ed the extra hour. They were very intimidating. They swore the whole time, and I even overheard them talking bad about me and my partner. You can’t just give a guy a hand truck and Call them a mover. They also left trash in the back of my rental truck.Show Response
I guess you can get an idea from this guys language who I was dealing with. Nobody was talking bad about these two or standing around "shooting the ****". The desk was cheap pressed "wood" that fell apart because it was missing hardware and wasn't assembled properly to begin with. In fact they had another identical desk that I made sure was fixed before moving it and it made it up to the 3rd floor just fine. Didn't take no 30 mins to fix the other 1 either and I only repaired it as a courtesy. We had to take this stuff to the 3rd floor with a long carry hence the extra hour. This guy needs to understand that not everyone is out to get him because of his sexual preference...I'm a VERY liberal person where things like that are concerned! The mattress was already torn by their loaders and we told his partner this before unloading. His partner also agreed to an open arrival time so we weren't late. I guess they need to communicate more or just keep other people out of their domestic disputes. As for the trash, I looked for a place to put it like I ALWAYS DO. I earned my place in this business buddy!

When it comes to packing a storage unit this technician did a really good job everything was tight and he made use of all the space. I took a little longer but we had room left over when he was done which I was happy about. He brought a helper that was competent they came clean and we're very professional.Show Response
I'd like to note that the job was still done within the 2 hour window. Thank you for the good review!

On time and excellent service. The Crew was super fast and really knew how to pack a truck for long distance hauling! Great use of all the space preventing us from having to lease a larger truck. Very pleasant and really excellent service. I highly recommend.
A Plus Moving confirmed quickly they would provide the service. They arrived early and were ready and well-equipped to do the work.

First of all you didn't have "more than enough pads" because we ran out! Secondly I'm the best loader in the business!

Yeah you were so rude that you complained because I "drank too much water"(but she won't mention that because it'll expose who she is). What is too much water in this Florida heat?

The job was a small simple unload that we knew was going to take less than the 2 hour minimum. Her belongings were handled with care like every job I take on!

Unbelievable that this guy wasn't intelligent enough to realize how good of a move he had. And I'm not just referring to myself. He was actually more worried about $5 worth of hardware that was only misplaced rather than telling my helpers how great of a job they really did! He was arrogant and couldn't accept the fact that he had over a 26' truck to be moved from a 2 story to a 2 story.

When I said I planned on tipping them they discussed it and said I guess that would be okay. The third "free" guy which was Jon spent more time eating and telling the other two guys what to do. The two other guys worked hard. They seemed embarrassed by John's behavior which included screaming at me in the middle of the front yard and hovering over me to make sure I paid them the extra hour. Truly a horrible experience that left me shaking and crying and calling hire a helper to make a formal complaint. I am a pediatric nurse for many years and I deal with many tense situations that are life-threatening. This experience left me more rattled than any of those experiences. Hire a helper also told me he had a complaint from the people prior to me that day. I'm not sure how he gets so many good reviews. I saw nothing professional go on the day of our move. Contrary to what Jon says Im very easy to make happy. Do the job and work hard and I have zero problem paying you. I am probably one of the most non-confrontational people you could ever meet.Show Response
Say what you want...im sure most people understand there are a certain percentage of people out there like you...miserable and unhappy. Its not my fault. I'll continue to work and make sane people happy inspite of having to deal with someone like you.

This is the second time I have used them and I highly recommend them. My mistake was misjudging the time it would take, they finished the job though.

I am so glad I chose this company and they moved my 16' truck items up 3 flights of stairs! No damage! I love these guys. I will always keep them in mind for Florida moves, or as a recommendation. I came from Cleveland, OH and was so scared, but they were even better than the people that packed me. They made my trip so worth it and we raved about them for hours. I would highly recommend. They will do you justice!
One of the helpers broke my garage door opener and they put my stuffed snowman under a hose outside. One of the three gave 100 %. I don't think I would hire them again.Show Response
Nobody broke your garage door opener...i (John) handed you a piece to it right when we showed up to your unload because it was already on the garage floor. This woman is angry because she owns a VERY large amount of stuff and didnt like the fact she had to pay to have it moved. Stuffed snowman comment should tell all...come on! We even drove her kabota tractor illegally to her new house to save her money from renting a flatbed to move it as there was absolutely no way to get it up into her dock

When the scheduled people who were supposed to help my mom load up a Uhaul walked off the job I was left with a stranded mother/widow in Florida with no one to load her furniture.

I would HIGHLY recommend A+ Movers as a trustworthy and dependable moving team! Thanks John!
We moved from Pa. to Florida. I needed help unloading so I checked into Hire a helper.

Fantastic Job! I would recomment them to anybody. They were on time, even if my house doesn't show on a GPS yet. They were very careful with our furniture and fragile items, and unloaded 2 full pods in 3h! It helps a lot to have movers like them when you already had a stressful time moving, they made it easier!
After scheduling the job John contacted me and followed up. The day of the job John EVEN called me telling me he was on his way and traffic conditions, that was very professional!

The two guys who were just at our house to unload our moving truck were on time, professional, friendly, and courteous. ** Note** I almost read too much into the couple of less than 5 star reviews, but then saw they had mostly 5's. Having had my own business I'm well aware that some people look for reasons to be negative. So …Read MoreI decided to hire them. Their price listed on the site was at least $80 less than some others! We drove from GA with a tightly packed rental truck, and hired them to unload it, and we were specific about where and how things were handled and placed. They came fully prepared, handled our things with respect and care, honored any requests about placement, etc. Cannot understand why anyone would give anything other than a stellar review. These guys were great and I'd absolutely hire them again. Jon and I am sorry but cannot recall the other fellows name, but he's from NY. Very nice. Don't hesitate to hire them.
John and his helper did an awesome job. They arrived on time had their own moving equipment and worked the entire contracted time. Both men were very kind, hard working, careful in the moving of my belongings. I would highly recommend John and I would personally hire them again. Thanks John for your help.
This company had problems was not up front from the beginning.Not prepared. They should be honest about the circumstance. I hope they get it togetherShow Response
Sorry for the inconvenience. I am willing to admit not being able to make it to this job. Although tried very hard to make it it just wasnt possible. This has only happened a couple times over the years. Again very sorry.

They were a little late but that was understandable because we live in a new development and the area does not come up on GPS. They had the tools they needed to get job completed and on time.

HireAHelper should have some responsibility for running criminal background checks on the people on their site. My husband had told John and Mark NOT to touch any of the artwork on the walls.

John played his music so loud, some head banger music, that we finally had to tell him to not play it in the house. They were far from respectful of our property. My husband had to retrieve a $300 survival suit that they were using to stuff in between some furniture. We told them to stay out of the back bedroom and of course I found Mark grabbling things from there. I have read John's replays to negative feed back and he always has an excuse but believe me when I say DO NOT HIRE THESE workers. When you talk to John on the phone he will agree that the work will only take X amount of hours but as soon as he walks in he says it will be double the time but he will make you a deal and not go through HireAHelper cutting your cost by $50. He is a fast talking flim flam man that actually gives no discount. Now go ahead, John, deny everything I have said but we know you are a lier.Show Response

John and his employee showed up on time and got right to work. They did an excellent job, worked hard, and were careful with my things.They were social and polite and just great guys.

They were great once they arrived. The original schedule was for 8:00 AM and the the possibility of another job came up and they finally arrived at 4:00 PM. Once here, they did a good job. They were courteous, efficient and generally positive.Show Response

The gentleman I spoke with, John, was not the most pleasurable person to deal with. We spoke two days prior and he told me that he had double booked for the 8 am time frame.

On the day of work no one ha…Read Mored shown by 6 am so I called around 6:30 am and he told me that he was supposed to be there at 7 am. We went back and forth on the time and he was being nasty about it so I just let it go. I remember it being 6 am because I had scheduled a cleaning service for 10 am, giving me a 2 hour window to finish up whatever else needed to be done. He showed up at 7:15 am. In my mind, he was already an hour and fifteen minutes late but he was still fifteen minutes late but I digress. John's help was a really nice guy and would've preferred to deal with him but "John was the boss." John was standing around "organizing" in the truck a lot more than he was carrying items out and packing. The job ended up taking three hours, could've been done in two hours if John wasn't standing around. John didn't seem to respectful of our time or my property. When we were finishing up he was very admit about getting paid and was sort of nasty about it. I would never recommend John to anyone for his services. I would however recommend his helper, I wish I could remember his name!Show Response
Lol! Who does this guy know that doesnt like me? Read all my other reviews and then tell me if this doesnt look like a set up. If you want to know the truth about this job ill tell you who the nasty person really is. Too bad im not given as many charachters to tell the truth as he was given to lie!

On time, did a great job. They were very friendly and worked fast. Very respectful and kind. I would use them again. The only negative was the price. $239 for 2 hours. I would not have paid that much had I another option for moving the few pieces I had left. Other than that the experience was excellent. RW
They did everything I asked and even more they work steady, hard and helped me out on a last minute notice ....when the other movers pulled out on me within 12 hours of moving! I couldn't recommend anyone more! Nothing was broken and nothing was scratched!
Lots of knowledge and experience moving. This gentleman is a professional in his trade. Works hard and smartly, brought a lot of his own materials without request. Was late the day of move, but made up for it by staying past 6pm on A Saturday night. bravo!
They came an hour early and we were not completely ready. Then they stood and talked and were an hour over the two hours allotted. Cost me $41 more than I expected. It took an hour longer to unload than it did to load on the other end, which has never happened to us before. It was a first floor house so no steps involved. They w…Read Moreere nice and respectful but I did not have an extra $41 to spare on a fixed income. I would not use them again.Show Response
Sorry you couldn't afford to pay for your move, next time you should consider doing it yourself. As for the extra hour you could have and should have let us go earlier. I GUARANTEE NOBODY STANDS AROUND ON MY JOB SITE, and I think that would be obvious by being reflected in past reviews. And also regarding the unload taking longer than the load, dont you think there's many variables at every job site to affect time? Like distance from truck to house, assembly, and so on.

John, the owner - operator was very good at unloading my items correctly and being careful not bang up my furniture or the house walls/floors in the process. His helper wasn't as good, but decent. I've used other loading/unloading services and he's on the high end of the scale, partly i think, because he was a Van Lines mover/…Read Moredriver in the past. So they were close to being on time. He was prepared with dollies and power tools. They worked at a decent pace. But I prefer slow and careful, over fast and cheaper. Yes, I will be using him again to unload a Pod in the next few weeks.

The company hired to move me was A Plus Moving with. He called me that morning to say he would arriving around 11:30 a.m., and he did. Two other men were with him. The first 2 hours went fine. However, then I heard loud voices and asked if everything was alright. I was told it was. Then one of his helpers came to tell me t…Read Morehat he could not continue with the move because the boss (John) was treating him poorly and threatened to leave him stranded (when he lived in the Plant City area). I went down to see if I could calm John down, but he said he wasn't going to work with the man and was not going to finish the job! He then used vulgar language when speaking to the helper, and then left the job. The other man on the job just stood there quietly. The 2 drivers offered to help finish the job if they could get a ride home afterwards. I agreed and they both continued moving things on their own. They did a good job. My son-in-law gave them both a ride home later. They told me that John owed both of them money since they started with him earlier that morning, but knew he wouldn't pay them. He has done it to other people he's hired. I paid them for their work and they were very appreciative. I first hired one company, but then another one was chosen because the calendar wasn't updated, so I got A Plus Moving. I would not recommend them, and if someone asks about using Hire-A-Helper, I would make sure they knew what happened with my move.

The team I had did an outstanding job loading my 17 foot truck and 28 foot trailer! Did a much better job than I could have myself! If they were not sure whether to pack something, they would ask. Worked hard from the time they arrived to the time we finished (about 4 hours). Highly recommended!
John & Harry were at my address 5 min. Before they were supposed to be there witch was most appreciated. They knew ECT. How to move everything & were very careful not to scratch anything. No new marks on furniture or walls. I hope to be able to find them the next time i move.
John and his helper Henry were just awesome. They so patiently wrapped my sectional....better than when it was newly delivered. Then John really showed his professionalism and expertise when he packed the POD. He fit in the boxes better than a jig saw puzzle so that nothing will shift in the move. I would highly recommend John a…Read Morend Henry for your moving needs.
John was late in arriving and arrived with a flat tire on one of the two dollies, which meant that either he or his helper had to move boxes by carrying them. John was very gruff and although he and his helper completed the job in a timely enough manner, he was argumentative with me and even used the "F" word. He put a bottle of…Read More liquid next to two boxes of books which in my opinion showed a lack of paying attention or good judgement, and it spilled into them, ruining books and a ream of paper. I found John very unprofessional and filed a formal complaint with HireAHelper, who handled the complaint very well. I would use HireAHelper again, but definitely not A Plus Moving.Show Response
If all this WAS really true why not just give 1 star? Truth is she tried to get me to pay her for a good review. How can I be responsible for items I didn't pack (how am I supposed to know what's inside?) especially after SHE drove the vehicle and trailer over stumps on the property bouncing the load several times. Unfortunately we have to deal with all kinds. The only "F" word i might use with her is forgiveness. Obviously it didn't matter we had a flat that day because we made good time.

John and Harry did a great job loading up our POD. John is a master at filling every inch, although we didnt get all of our stuff in, he packed it more then we would have thought. We went with them because of all the great reviews, and were not disappointed. Highly recommend!
I needed help unloading my 26' truck after having a horrible time with the company for giving me a truck that was breaking down all the way from Boston. However, the best part was A Plus Moving, they had that truck unloaded and settled in my house in less than 2 hours. I would highly recommend and will use them again when I mo…Read Moreve to my bigger place. Professional and courteous!
They call movers professionals for a reason and John Harvath proved that today along with Hairy. These professionals surgically moved 1,400 Cubic Square Feet or 10,000lbs into a 26FT U-Haul in 6.5 hours. This includes the time to remove and restructure four hours of self moved furniture and boxes from the previous day. They r…Read Moreesponded to our panic as we thought there was no way to get our four bedroom home and garage into this U-Haul. John responded in less than two hours of our call into HireAHelper. They never once complained about the heat as they worked through midday temperatures of 90+ degrees and never once asked for anything. The only thing requested was our guidance on were items were so they could most efficiently pack our truck. As a military member... I was proud to work along side these two gentlemen and hope that any other military personnel strongly consider requesting John Harvath and his team (Hairy and Sophie - Mascot) with any portion of their move. Our family can't thank them enough. I'd select them at our destination if we weren't moving out of state. Not enough could be said about their professionalism this evening. Jason R.

Thank you for one of the best reviews ever...it was a pleasure serving you.

A Plus Moving really lived up to their name. They were on time, had all the equipment for the job. John and Harry worked very hard and efficiently. They were very careful and respectful of our property. We would definitely use them again. I can't say enough about this company.
Called to let us know they were delayed. They were prepared. Good workers and careful. Would use again.Show Response
Four stars? I don't understand how this customer could claim we were delayed because when he booked he was told he was the second job of the day and that I couldn't tell him when we'd arrive and he said he was OK with that.

I had to arrange for helpers over a hundred miles away, and they arrived when promised and did exactly what the job called for. I had booked three helpers, but the job leader said two would be enough. The order was modified and the partial refund showed up on my bank statement a couple of days later with no prompting by me. I…Read More needed certainty long distance, and I got it. I'm very pleased.
John and his crew were late. They said they missed an offramp, yet refused directions the rest of the day because they have gps. The good: John packed the truck very very well. Nothing was damaged in the drive, and he packed a lot in. Kudos. The bad: one of his crew broke the leg off a table forcing it through a doorway. L…Read Moreater, John insulted my wife. Later he lost his cool and cursed at her. Ok, so he was unprofessional and extremely opinionated (as you can see from every response he writes here), but that doesn't mean his work was bad. It was slow, though. It takes time to pack a masterpiece, and the 3 of us were standing and waiting. Lastly, the new house sustained a lot of gouges in the wood floors. Ouch.
We got really lucky with John Harvath of APlus Moving, we wondered whether we should do it ourselves and a health issue decided for us. From what I know now, I should have chosen a professional right away. John was on time - 6am - and we were on a tight schedule. He worked hard and steadily. I was very impressed with the th…Read Moreought and planning he put into the packing, but after unloading it ourselves at the other end, I am really amazed with the intelligence of the stacking and tightness of the fit. A true professional with experience to back it up. All along the day, John and his helper Harry were also really pleasant and conversational. Best money spent recently.
They were running late arriving, but kept me informed by cell phone. I told them that their review would be written by the "unloading crew" at my destination, so they did a good job loading. It took a little longer than I was expecting, BUT they load a tight load and I had no damage at the destination. The unloading guys said th…Read Moreey did good.Show Response
Are you kidding me? I did a good job? This person found a couple clown car pilots who took time off the circus to review something I guarantee they've never even seen before! Don't get me wrong you were a nice person but I expected you to recognize a masterpiece that took no longer to load than the dumpsters I unload that "movers" have loaded across the country everyday. When I laughed and said they're not qualified to rate my load job I meant it.

John was great and he responded quickly and called back several times to confirm time and place. He was very professional and gentle with my stuff. I highly recommend him for any moves.Show Response
Still to this day i will not understand a 4 star rating given the quality of moves I give to all my very valued customers. Maybe they don't like my cologne.

A Plus Moving did a great job. They worked very hard and fast, and packed my truck expertly. They handled my valuable things well. They were late, but it was only because of an extended job earlier. (Which was not their fault.) It was a bit bothersome to be kept up late, but I would definitely recommend this company!
I hired 2 workers. John and another gentleman came and they did a fantastic job. They both worked exceptionally hard the entire 4 hours we had them for. They were very cautious with my stuff and John was even teaching his help if he saw that he was unsure. I thought this was awesome. I will be using them again as well as re…Read Morecommending them to anyone who is loading or unloading a moving truck.
If you need a superstar packer, John, Jose and APlus are who you should call. We had mostly boxes and John's packing job was so good, I had to take photos of the loaded truck to show the artistry of his work. The different sizes of boxes were arranged like a stone mason would arrange different sizes of stone to build a wall. He …Read Moresaid that this method keeps the bottom boxes from crushing, and it did. Our move with John and Jose was very smooth and efficient. Nothing was damaged. Would definitely use them again.
I was stood up by the guys that were supposed to unload my pod. We put a call in to Hire a Helper and they connected me with some movers that could still be able to make it out the same day. They were experienced, polite and did a great job.
John was great - he was fast and did not damage any of our items or walls. My only complaint would be that he was late on both days (the first day was due to a car problem, the second day was because his prior job ran late). However, other than that, he was wonderful and did a very good job.Show Response
Thank you very much for you patience and understanding. This is a very difficult business to survive in especially these days. It was a pleasure serving you this time and hopefully in the future.

We scrambled to find help to unload our moving truck after driving from out of state the night before we had no energy left ourselves lol I googled moving labor help in Largo FL and really didn't find anything but gave the HireAHelper website a go. As soon as I finished my reservation for help I swear I had a call from John wit…Read Morehin 30 seconds. He arranged to be at our location within a few hours which was perfect for us. He brought a helper as arranged and due to his experience and equipment he provided our 20' Uhaul truck packed floor to ceiling was unloaded in just 2 hours. I will not hesitate to use Hire A Helper and will request John if possible : )
This move took over 15 hours. John Harvath is a professional mover,but his day laborer was a problem. I've never had a 15 hour move before. Some of our furniture was taken apart, that took alot of extra time.Show Response
I don't know how many times I've been blamed for someone having a lot of stuff. A whole 26ft u-haul truck packed from floor to ceiling loaded from a 2nd floor and unloaded, how long do you think that takes? This person has never had a 15hr move because he's never had that much stuff on a 2nd floor with a long carry to the truck. He admitted he had purchased a lot of stuff in the years since moving in. Don't you think some things need to be disassembled to be moved? Give me a break! Nothing broke

Helpers were on time. They did a good job and worked hard. There was no damage to furniture or house. They installed the washer and dryer. There was a problem with the washer fitting in the area. He pointed out what the problem was and explained what was needed to fix the problem.
These two movers were terrific and as I had hired another company and they never responded it was great when hire a helper contacted us and got us a replacement with this company instead. They contacted us right away and were there on time and worked very hard to help us get everything in the truck. We were very grateful to both…Read More hire a helper for their follow up and to this company A plus moving for being so easy.

Here's the good: showed up on time. The supervisor overall did a good job managing the additional two workers and were able to handle a very large couch. HERE IS THE BAD: A 50" DLP projector screen TV was loaded with care into the moving truck, covered with plastic bubble wrap and placed between mattereses and blankets. It …Read Moremade the trip in good condition and my mover supervised the off loading of the TV by hand with hi assistance. The supervisor was not at the truck when Armando [one of his workers] picked up the TV with a two-wheel truck and moved it to an elevator where it was placed on a four-wheel dolly. The next thing we know is the supervisor coming down and notifying us of damage done to the TV screen, ruining the TV with a 7 x 3 inch gouge into the TV set on the edge. THE ONLY WAY THIS COULD HAVE HAPPENED IS THAT THE TV WAS GOUGED BY THE TW0-WHEEL HAND TRUCK. This TV should have been hand-carried. Instead the worker used a hand truck to move it from the truck to the elevator. There was NOTHING in the truck that would have accounted for the damage. Worse still, A-Plus would not take ANY responsibility for the damage or even refund the cost of the unloading. Would we use them again? Of course not. Hire-A-Helper was responsive but not A-Plus.Show Response
First of all I am the supervisor that this person is referring to and let me just start by saying I've been moving furniture for 17 years and have been on every single job that has been done by A Plus Moving.I personally handled this tv every step of the way,not Armando like he claims.To begin with the tv was suspiciously sitting on the garage floor already upon our arrival and yes was wrapped in bubble wrap,I'm sure now to try to hide the existing damage to the tv from us.In short he's a con.
