The two gentlemen arrived on time and they were very courteous, friendly and polite. They didn’t want to spend time talking but wanted to get right to work. In fact when I tried to “help” that told me “that’s their job”! They handled every piece of furniture with care and knew exactly had to maneuver each piece to get the furniture in with no effect to the walls or furniture. They didn’t stop until the job was completed and then asked if there was anything else we wanted help with. So they were able to unload a 16 foot POD in record time! I highly recommend this company! Thank you for a job well done!

Marcus and Jason moved out our 2 bedroom apartment. They worked quickly, efficiently and with care. They packed out storage pod in a way that will protect our belongings while in transit and had a great attitude during the process.

I they showed up on time and were very efficient clean and pleasant

Mover's response:
As corny as it sounds, we really do sweat with a smile. Moving is stressful enough so why make it worse with bad attitudes. Thank you for the great review and your business!!

OMG, Gabriel and Daryn were beyond amazing. This is first time using Hire a Helper and I was very nervous about getting everything done, would everything fit, would they do it right, would everything be secured properly, would they try to take longer etc., etc. They were beyond competent, organized, fast, through, efficient, helpful and very accommodating and pleasant. I feel like a burden has been lifted and I would recommend that everyone stop struggling with trying to do it all to just call Hire a Helper and the Thumbs Up guys Gabriel & Daryn. Thank you G& D!!!!??

Mover's response:
Thank you for the kind words, Mary kay! It was our pleasure being able to step in last minute and get this done for you. You made it so easy for us being as prepared as you were as far as wrapping items yourself and having most of your belongings boxed up. We hope you don’t have relocate again soon but if so please feel free to give us a call. We’d love to help. Take care!

These guys were amazing. Super efficient, very careful loading, took all the right steps to protect our stuff. Would recommend wholeheartedly. They even credited the hour that was billed but not used, they were that quick.

Get To Know Us

What can a customer expect after booking with you?

We are a group that consists of people with professionalism, good customer service skills and most importantly, we treat your belongings as if they are our own.

What can a customer expect on moving day if they hire you?

We will show up on time. Ask for a walkthrough to see what is going and what maybe isn’t. If you have a certain way you need the truck loaded, we always work with the customer in that area.

How should a customer prepare for moving day?

It depends on the situation. If you want us to come in and do everything such as packing all your boxes and loading it then we can definitely handle that. However, if you wanna a more quick and budget friendly move... have everything packed in boxes and ready to be moved and loaded. We also always stress getting enough blankets if you want your furniture protected properly, at least 1 pad per item, some larger items and odd shaped items require 2 or more. Shrink wrap helps to hold blankets on but tape works

What types of moves have you handled?

We have handled almost every job imaginable. Anywhere from working at PDX moving the entire contents of an airplane hanger to moving studio apartments. Everything in between as well. Office moves, houses from 800 sq ft to 8000 sq ft. We do not offer long distance moving however.

What's your favorite part about being a mover?

The change in the everyday work life. Very much enjoy seeing a different part of town/state everyday and having a flexible schedule. It is also incredible how much you see get done in a such a small amount of time.

What training do you provide your crew members?

Technique, technique, technique. Always checking where you’re walking and what is around the corner or behind you that could get damaged. Prepping the house for the move. That means floor protection, protecting doors/doorways, rails on stairs, etc. always remind them to be conscious of what could be damaged. Customer service skills are a must if you want to work for us.
