Highly unprofessional. Furniture arrived extremely damaged due to lack of proper protection and loading. I bought 3 dozen blankets and rope and advised him to secure and protect for our long drive to CA, but this wasn't done and blankets were left unused. Even steel furniture had severe gouges and grooves. My steel toolbox was l…Read Moreeft uncovered and repeatedly slammed into the wall of the truck behind our heads every time we stopped for 6 days of travel! Our patio furniture was unprotected and fell everywhere. The entire load shifted and crashed in the first hour but John left no access to tie down and cover what should have been done right by him in the first place. Gross waste of space in the truck, which is a waste of money. I had to get in and push things around to try to maximize wasted space. John is very overweight and had a hard time moving. He sweated profusely and left big body marks on our walls and glass and I had to hire someone to clean these off after he was done.
Just John came on time and was friendly but he did not meet expectations. He was worn out quickly and was unable to move everything. Most of the items remained in the garage. His worker Luis had energy still but since John was tired they were unable to move as fast as 2 people could. There were many scratches and dings on the wa…Read Morells as they moved large items. This was also disappointing. I probably would not use this mover again.
i had booked with a different helper but they, through no fault of their own, could not come. Hire a helper contacted me and said they would find a replacement. J.J. came in at the last minute and were prepared. They were quick, industrious, and professional. They were moving some very sentimental items and treated them with car…Read Moree. I would use them again. Also I would book through hire a helper anytime. they were very responsive.
I needed help moving a few large furniture items from my 3rd floor walk-up in a DC to a storage unit. He called me to tell me he had hit road construction and was running slightly late, which I appreciated. He and his helper were awesome. I had used John twice in the past...he is my go-to guy. I would recommend him all day. He i…Read Mores kind and careful, and sweet to chat with. I will use him when I need future moving labor help!!
John and his helper were great. They were on time, at the hour of my choice, they were ready to work, and were very polite. I looked at what I had to move and had to wonder if 2-hours would be near enough, but the got in the door, and just very politely began hefting things around. There were a couple items too big to get thr…Read Moreough a doorway, but we discussed various options, and solved each problem. They completed the entire job, and even moved some extra items, in less than 90-minutes. I will DEFINITELY hire them again at the time of my next move!
I wanted to write a review for John because I used the reviews to decide who to hire... John and Juan were early so that was perfect.. They got right to work and did all that we needed. They were both gentlemen and packed the truck expertly- nothing shifted and for a 200 mile ride- nothing broke... For us it was a o…Read Morene shot deal- for you...I would recommend "Just John"
"Just John" and his helper were a gift from Heaven above! They showed up early, and in 2.5 hours loaded an entire 16 foot truck from our second floor condo (three flights of stairs). Amazing! John's strength is impressive. And his work ethic, even more outstanding. John is personable and friendly. He arrived, shook hand…Read Mores and got right to work. We just got back from emptying the truck in North Carolina into our new condo (first floor - thank goodness) and not one single thing was damaged. John packed that truck like he was packing his own most valuable possessions. He even packed it so well that we had room we weren't expecting; which made it possible to fit more stuff in the truck and less in our cars. I would hire "Just John" again and again!
John is a sweet, hard-working man. I'd used him two years ago to unload a big truck and he was so professional and friendly that I went right back to find him again when it was time to move. He showed up on time, ready to go! His strength is awesome - he can lift impressive amounts of weight. Also he was great at packing the v…Read Morean to get everything in there. I would recommend him all day to anyone who wants someone who will take care of their stuff and be super nice. Thank you, John!
Just John did a great job packing a 10 foot moving truck for me. He was able to come with very little advance notice when my original hire had to cancel last minute. He loaded the truck in a timely manner, and loaded it very well. It was a squeeze to fit my furnishings and boxes in the truck, but Just John packed everything t…Read Moreight enough to fit. He was affordable, efficient, and did an excellent job.
The absolute highlight and best part of what had become a most abysmal move. I have had the moving truck show up at my door 55 times in my life... so when it comes to moves, i have seen the worst and the best. "Just John" and hireahelper.com are the absolute bight spots in what was fast becoming a rotten move from Montgomery, …Read MoreAL to Alexandria, VA. John and Balthazar showed up as expected and went right to work. I asked John to bring a furniture Dolly and he did... it proved most helpful moving a few dressers and other heavy objects. I was impressed with their strong work ethic, courtesy, and concern for my items. They placed everything where I asked and did their best to avoid any damage to the apartment walls and doors and the furniture. This was my first experience with hireahelper.com and "Just John". I absolutely and unreservedly recommend them. I will definitely use the services of both again.
Just John and his helper arrived on time. My truck was already partially loaded from a storage unit so they did not have much to load at the apartment. They failed to secure a piece of furniture. It was a tall chest of drawers. Naturally if fell during the 30 minute ride and was badly damaged. I was shocked and quite disapp…Read Moreointed. This is so basic in a move. Just John stated he was sorry and should have checked up on his helper (who has been doing this with him for several months). I saw no reason to obtain insurance as I did not have much to move - just need some muscle power and a little common sense. I believe the concept of hire-a-helper is good and much needed. It is unfortunate I had a bad experience.
John's ability to lift heavy furniture by himself is quite remarkable - this guy is a competitive heavy weight-lifter and it shows! He was on-time and willing to start early on a weekend, which was great. He also has a very affordable rate. That said, a few pieces of furniture didn't make it out alive, so... average rating!
I would recommend Just John for your moving needs. I was unaware that he did not have a truck. He was on time and very courteous. His assistant was good as well. They continued to work until the job was complete. I would use them again in the future.
John worked hard on a brutally hot day. He's quite strong, and he moved heavy furniture down several flights of stairs. Note, though, that he is literally *just* John, which means that he expects you to pitch in and help with the larger items. Nothing wrong with that -- provided you understand that that is what you are gettin…Read Moreg. Because he is one guy, two hours can go by quickly. However, he works steadily and other than drinking a few glasses of water (it was nearly 100 degree and humid), he didn't stop. He's also quite nice, and he apologized for being slower than usual due to the heat, and he worked about 10 or 15 minutes past the official deadline for no extra charge. As long as you have a realistic sense of what you need and the time it will take, and provided you can help, he's a good choice.
I was very pleased with John and would definitely hire him again. He showed up on time, worked hard, and was very polite. He's a big, strong, guy!I loved his "can-do" attitude, with getting dressers up narrow stairs and somehow finding a way to get an impossibly big sleeper sofa around a narrow corner into a back bedroom. Ama…Read Morezing. He had a 20' U-Haul totally emptied in 3 hours. Best of all, he did it "just" by himself and this proved much cheaper than quotes I got for hiring two people.
John was great! I asked him to come at 2 and he was here at 2 on the dot. He had the furniture cart as advertised and he jumped right in and got started. He didn't waste a minute. When my couch didn't fit in the elevator he hauled it up 6 flights of stairs without hesitation. He was super nice and polite. Couldn't have been bett…Read Moreer.
John showed up on time, but had a pretty terrible attitude the entire time. He complained repeatedly throughout the time that he spent with me, rarely answered my questions when I asked them and instead just ignored me (and my wife for that matter), and got upset with me when I explained where I wanted him to move things. I …Read More hired him and his helper for 2 hours of work, but at least half of that time was spent driving to and from a warehouse to pick up furniture. He complained about having to follow me to the warehouse in his car (which was only 20 min away, and he agreed to doing this a couple of days earlier). After spending over an hour just driving (and getting paid to sit there), he then complained that his two hours were almost up and he couldn't help finish the job, which consisted of merely moving a couple of nightstands and another box upstairs. This was especially disappointing because he told me that I was his only job for the day, so he clearly was capable of helping finish the job. Also, he repeatedly bumped things into our walls, even when we asked him not to and pointed out that he was going to do so if he continued on his current path with furniture. After telling my wife it was impossible to move the furniture upstairs without hitting the walls, my wife and I pointed out an alternative route that would leave the walls unscathed. He followed that route instead and did not hit the walls. Overall, he was quite unprofessional, had a terrible attitude and no personality, and was much more careless than a mover should be. On another note, his helper, Sanchez, was incredibly kind and helpful. He did not complain once, and went above and beyond what was expected of him. In my opinion, you'd be better off hiring Just Sanchez than Just John. I recommend hiring someone else, especially someone with a personality and positive attitude. It'll make your overall moving experience much better.
John and his partner were absolutely fantastic! They were ON TIME, friendly (John always had a smile on his face and just has this cool, laid back calm demeanor), hard-working and made the whole chaotic mess/stress of a move just so much easier to deal with. I would advise everyone to not even bother looking elsewhere for mo…Read Moreving assistance... just schedule John and leave those worries behind.
Just John was very good: two guys (father and son) came as planned and not only moved the carpet into place in the room, as I had originally asked, but also helped move the furniture back onto the newly placed carpet. They were pleasant and helpful and it all worked out very well. I am a pleased customer and wouldn't hesitate…Read More to book them again in the future.
John and his helper were wonderful!!! I had a difficult move up to Arlington due to movers on the other end not showing up, and hitting traffic and arriving later than expected. I was so glad and relieved when I arrived to Arlington to have someone as hardworking and professional as John. He worked hard the entire time, in 10…Read More0 degree heat, and moved my stuff in really efficiently. He also offered to help assemble anything I needed. I will use John again when I have to move next and highly recommend him to others.
John and his assistant did a good job, although I think they got off to a slow start. I would have liked a bit more of a take charge attitude, as it would have inspired more confidence. All in all though, the truck was well packed and he made sure the job was done to our satisfaction which I appreciated. All in all, we were sat…Read Moreisfied with the service we received for the money.
John was on time and very professional. Originally, we had him scheduled to move only an entertainment center. Yet, he was more than willing to help move multiple furniture pieces. The process took much less time than anticipated due to John's strength :)
John was excellent. He returned our call right away and we were happy that he was available with our short time notice. He arrived earlier and was able to do the job fast. A very nice, courteous, pleasant person. Highly recommended to others. Manassas, Va
John was so patient and kind and did a wonderful job moving very heavy bedroom furniture. I forgot that the set that I bought was in an upstairs bedroom, but John didn't flinch. He handled it well and never complained once or threatened to charge extra. He was so helpful and nice on the phone and in person. He was exactly where …Read Morehe was supposed to be, on time, and at the right place. I would hire him again!
Having John help us with our move was one of the best choices we could have made. He showed up on time and got right down to business. Polite, courteous, and a hard worker - I could not recommend him enough. He really helped make our move much easier. If you are looking for someone to help on your moving day, I would highl…Read Morey recommend getting in touch with John.
Fabulous. Only one guy, but what a worker. He loaded my truck - by himself with my feeble assistance -in 2 hours. Answered confirming phone call promptly, arrived early, quiet and competent. He's very strong - I was carefully lifting one box and he came in, picked up 3 boxes, and strolled away.
We are repeat customers and would gladly hire John again. He was flexible on the time we needed him to arrive and punctual. He was very helpful and even brought his own dolly which made life much easier. I trust him with our stuff and plan to hire him again when we move out.
Just John and his associate helped me and my sister with our move last weekend. I would highly recommend them, and I would definitely use them again in the future. He was on time, very professional, and they moved all my awfully heavy furniture up to a 4th floor apartment - no elevator - in the rain. Thank you, gentlemen! Not on…Read Morely were they efficient, strong and hard working, but they were very careful with all my belongings. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
I arrived ahead of schedule and John was able to accomdate me. He showed up and did a great job. He and his helper loaded the contents of a 10x30 storage room into a 26 foot rental truck without any input from me. I would highly recomend him to anyone who can't load their own furniture. Thanks again John for a good job.
John was early, worked quickly, worked hard, and was a really nice guy. His pace surpassed that of a two man crew. John was very plesant to be around; he's a _really_ nice guy. I'll use John for my next move, and recommend him to all of my friends.
john was absolutely awesome! He was very patient with me and worked his butt off! I would definitely use him again if needed. My only setback..I didn't find out prior to the job whether I needed to get my own dolly, etc. So it made my move a little harder than it needed to be.
He arrived on time (in fact a little early) and was more awake than I was. He was nice, polite, patient and definetely was a tremendous help to me. He got right to work even though I felt like a slacker and tried to fill him with coffee. (of course! I wasn't awake yet) Nonetheless he made my crappy day a lot brighter. Th…Read Moreanks a million
