I cannot say enough good things about STRESS FREE MOVES AND PACKING - Ralph and Doug both were incredible helpful - I originally contracted with them to do packing - I needed to get everything out of my house for major reconstruction - but after packing, they were able to actually MOVE the items they packed into storage for me -…Read More they had thought to bring a uHaul van - They were completely prepared for everything I asked them to do and I WILL ABSOLUTELY USE THEM AGAIN.
I had never heard of HireAHelper, but my mother and I had to move my apartment quickly due to a dysfunctional roommate situation. My mom found HireaHelper when we were searching for movers for the next day. At 5 pm on Thursday we received a confirmation for a 4 hour move with 2 people at 1pm on Friday! We were so relieved to hav…Read Moree help for the next day at a reasonable price. We quickly reserved a 10 foot U-Haul to transport all my things. My biggest items were my full bed, futon mattress, and 10 foot kayak. My mother and I packed up all my stuff into suitcases, Tupperware tubs, and boxes. On Friday, Doug and Alfredo were in communication about their arrival time and were extremely professional. From the moment, they arrived they were focused on getting my items safely and efficiently into the 10 foot U-Haul. Doug perfectly packed up the 10 foot U-Haul with my things. He tied down and protected my furniture. There was no wasted space and everything fit like a perfect puzzle. Alfredo was extremely strong and went up and down the stairs in my old apartment quickly even in the extreme heat of the late day. When we arrived at my new apartment they unloaded in nearly half the time and put together my bed frame. The entire time they worked, my mother and I assisted by packing up what was left of my stuff. We watched in awe as they treated all my things with care. We were incredibly thankful and could not have done it without them. I would recommend them to anyone. Doug was especially knowledgeable and though they did not pack up my things into boxes I feel like if the same care is spent packing into boxes as was spent on truck loading then they would be great at that also. They were a godsend and worth every penny!!!
Ralph and John are two of the hardest working guys you'll ever meet! They were knowledgeable and professional. They were able to move heavy and bulky furniture I didn't think could fit through openings. They took things apart and put them back together to get things through a doorway quickly. They were in constant motion. The we…Read Morere courteous and friendly and agreeable to do whatever we needed done. They were careful with our belongings. They both were very nice guys too and I would use them again!
We were excited to use HiraAHelper's data base for our moving needs. However, after we had paid and were given a window of arrival, our helpers failed to communicate with us any issues. It took action on our part to figure out why there were delays or if anyone was going to come (we waited for 6+ hours). At the end of the day th…Read Moree company hired was not able to make because of a previous job, at which point it was too late for us, so we declined HireAHelper's offer for a replacement company.Show Response
Im sorry this happen. I was told a location that my workers could get to down town. I was on another job so I couldnt be there. After accepting the job I was told it was quite far from the original adddress and my crew would not be able to make it in time. Im sorry for us not showing but hireahelper or you the customer gave us wrong information.

Great help on time and ready to work very friendly and was patient when I would change my mind about where I wanted things I would totally use them again. Great job guys !!!!!!Show Response
Thank you Julie

They were on time and they were nice. They did complain quite a bit about how heavy boxes etc. were and my brother who was the one paying them didn't really appreciate hearing that. Other than than that they were ok....Show Response
Thank you for your feed back. Its funny you mentioned boxes, moving company have this problem everyday. We know how heavy boxes should be when packed, but were not packing them. When the customer packs books and heavy kitchen dishes most moving boxes state what size box to use and customers don't head the warning. We lift these boxes probably 4 times before it gets to the final location. Please be considerate of the movers. I have talked with employees and they should not be complaining w

I am horrible at names, but we had John and ____. They did an absolutely AMAZING job, so flexible with our weird moving situation, so polite, AMAZING. Hiring movers online had me a little worried, and booking so late in the game (less than 48 hours before), but as soon as John called me the morning of, and was so friendly and fl…Read Moreexible on the phone with coming a little later I was instantly put at ease. I kept saying I will never move again, but if I do I am without a doubt calling this company again. BEST ever and worth every single penny!!!! Thank you so much!!
We hired this team for a 2nd move because they did such a wonderful job the 1st time. However, they were several hours late for the job this time (5 hrs late), which threw off our entire moving schedule. To make up for their extreme tardiness, they gave us one hour of labor for free & drove the U-Haul for free. We greatly apprec…Read Moreiated this, since HireAHelper only offers a 5% discount for tardiness. Even though this move wasn't as stress free as the 1st one, we still appreciated the fact that this team owned up to their mistake and compensated us for the huge inconvenience.
This moving team was so helpful. They showed up on time and worked hard all the way through. They handled items properly and are amazing at stacking and fitting a lot into a tiny space. Very nice guys too- Pleasant to be around and trustworthy. I highly recommend them. They made the moving process so much easier on us.
Arrived a bit late but called to let me know. We needed unexpected help to pack and they jumped right in. It took time but they did a great job. No damages of note and they respected us and our property. I would not hesitate to use them again.
They got everything in at the price quoted. It doesn't appear any damage to my property occurred. I am very happy with their work and I recommend them to anyone. They were on time, they were prepared, they worked hard. I would use them again.
Great group of guys . Hard workers with great personalities. They were very down to earth and knowledgeable. They were passionate about ensuring that all of my items were moved safely and to my satisfaction . I would use them again .
I agree with many of the reviews. The 2 men who helped us, when they arrived, were conscientious and very helpful. They even helped us replace a broken sink faucet. The reviews said they would be late so I planned with that in mind. And yes they were late but actually on time since I anticipated the late arrival. Both men …Read Moreseemed to need rehab... Again I expected it so wasn't surprised. For the price and the fact that they were so careful with our belongings I would use them again. I hope this is helpful.Show Response
Don't know why you felt this way. We fixed your sink which is out of our scope of work. The rehab is your opinion but I don't believe we deserve that comment due to our size. We are both of smaller size frame but extremely strong. Thanks for the good ratting.

HireAHelper was very helpful, efficient and professional. The lady i talked to (Patricia) was very helpful and made sure i get all the assistance i need despite that i called on their help only one day before my move. The two people who came to help were on time and did great job. HA
This is the 2nd time I've submitted the review for this job. I'm only submitting the review again because the two men who did the job were exceptional. They were on time, professional and courteous. The treated my belongings as if the were their own. They worked very hard for two hours in extreme heat. I would hire them again an…Read Mored recommend them.
What hard workers! When they got there, (and they were early) they were all business. Went right to work, helped us out so much! And their experience helped us to pack the right way! We are so happy with Ralph and his crew. Thank you for a positive experience! Blessings to you and your family.
I should have written this before I forgot the names of the guys that came out. I was unloading the little stuff from the Pods when they arrived and one joking said to me, "Hey, that's our job!" I told him "Let's see if you can keep up with an old man." They did. Nice guys. They worked hard and got the job done as advertise…Read Mored. No breaks or mars. I would hire them again.
They worked hard the whole time and took good care of my stuff. The only thing preventing a 5 star rating was that they showed up an hour late. They still stayed the full time I had requested they just started later. I would use them again.
They showed up late due to transportation problems but they finished on time. No scratches, no brakes, no problems. Worried a little because they looked like they were fresh out of rehab, but they fooled me with a good job. In fact I would hire them again. tjones
Ralph and Mark were a godsend after a wearying drive in from Idaho. They were on time, prepared, and worked really hard to take our stuff from the truck, up the stairs, and into the correct room in our new apartment. They were friendly, and I could trust them with our most valuable, fragile items. Like I said, they were a godsen…Read Mored.
Great job guys! They showed up on time, were friendly and respectful. I explained the job and they went after it! Not a lot of standing around or confusion...just hard work and fast. Nice guys who got the job done in a timely manner. I would definitely hire them again. Thanks again.
Had a wonderful move experience. Both Mark and Ralph were on time, worked hard,helped make the day easy for my sister and even lent their cell phone so she could contact me. They helped us get another cube and came back same day to help again. very flexible, kind and talented-loading all of that stuff in small spaces. Thank you…Read More so much. would use them again for sure.
Movers showed up 45 minutes late and never bothered to even call and say they were running late. One of the movers did not show up for work that morning so they had to "find" someone else to assist with our move. What I got was one experienced mover and a person who had no idea how to move furniture properly and didn't have the …Read Morestrength to do so. My boyfriend had to help them on several occasions during the move. The move went very slow and several of my pieces we scratched. Needless to say I was not happy at all!!Show Response
I'm sorry I had given my workers the wrong phone #. I did discount you 2 hrs and thought I made up for us being late and the communication. The stairs were very narrow so it wasn't that we couldn't do the work it was due to the difficult stairs. Sorry again
~ Stress Free Moves and Packing
All though they got there at the last minute from there schedule time, I have to say they did a great job, my daughter who stuff they move was very impress with the two men that did the work they friendly and helpful. Yes I would suggest this service to other. Thank You
Mark was on site early to check out the job and set it up for his helper. They began on time and unloaded the contents of a 24 foot moving van in about 1 1/2 hours-- well within the time contracted. Since our 300 plus boxes were color coded by room, they moved all the contents of each room accordingly. The team was friendly, …Read Moreefficient and respected our requests. OF COURSE, I would use them again!!
The interaction with this company started off very poorly. Though they confirmed the job and day and time a week ahead of the move, I had to reach out several times to re-confirm the day before since I had not heard any updates on their end. On the day of the move, the movers were supposed to show up between 10am and 11am - we w…Read Moreere on a fairly strict timeframe, so I was very irritated to not hear anything from them saying they were running late. A little after 12pm, two movers showed up with a bag of fast food in hand. Their first interaction with me consisted of letting me know they had a "long night" and a request that we give them some time to have their lunch. I was a bit shocked at this request and I let them know that we were kind of in a hurry - owing that they were already an hour late - so I didn't think an immediate lunch break was a good idea. They understood this, and promptly got to work soon after. Both of the movers actually did a very good job when all was said and done packing my belongings quickly and securely in a U-Haul in about 2.5 hours. Overall, the communication with the company prior to and day-of the move was poor, though once they showed up and got working, the arrangement worked out relatively well.
My appointment was in the afternoon, they were running late, but they called ahead to let me know. They came prepared, I staged items to be loaded and what they could ignore. That helped a ton, they worked non-stop and wrapped up with plenty of time to spare. Very respectful, I'd defiantly use them again.
These guys showed up on time and worked hard for six hours. They went over and above to do get the job done. The moving truck was packed tightand everything made it to the new place intact. I would recommend them and use them again. These guys saved me a ton of work and I thought their fee was reasonable.
How two guys managed to get all my stuff into a pod carefully and with a great attitude is beyond me. I was really impressed with this team. They worked super hard and super fast and were pleasant to be around (and let's face it moving is stressful, and I was delighted to be around people in a good mood!). They were right on tim…Read Moree, and I would definitely g=hire them again!
I am so happy to say that my experience working with Stress Free Movers was amazing! They had excellent communication and customer service skills. They were flexible with me regarding the exact time of my arrival for the unloading job I hired them for. It worked hard and accomplished the job in the amount of time agreed-upon. …Read MoreI now understand why they chose the name Stress Free Movers. They truly created a stress-free experience for the second half of my move (which was opposite from the experience I had with the business that originally loaded my belongings into the moving truck...(a company that is not with Hire a Helper). I highly recommend working with stress-free Movers! I'm so glad I did!!!
Scheduled to arrive between 11:00 - !2:00, the helpers did not arrive until 2:30. Once they had arrived, they worked very well for me, however, the change of arrival time caused problems with completing the moving in a time frame (e.g. returning the rental truck, hauling trash to the dump, etc.) The helpers worked hard, broug…Read Moreht furniture pads, and were respectful of my property and goods. I would use these helpers again but the management caused the time delay.
I can't express how grateful I was to have hired Stress Free Moves & Packing for our arrival into Vacaville. They showed up right on time, and brought all the things with them that they would need for moving - plus some! There were two middle-aged gentlemen as well as two young men there to do all the heavy lifting, and not one …Read Moreof them was less able than the other. They were very gentle with our furniture (despite the fact that the first set of movers, Jay's Moving Service, practically destroyed every last item from our Southern California home), asked where we wanted things before just leaving our heavy items (fridge, couches, etc.) in the corners, and even attempted to fix and/or rebuild the furniture that was disassembled or damaged in transit with their own tools & hardware. They were such thoughtful men, and I will definitely be calling them again for when we make our way back home to Southern California come 2016. Use these guys on your next move - you certainly won't be disappointed!
They were scheduled for an arrival time between 10-11. To me, that means: plan on them showing up at 11. They called ahead of time and showed up at 10:15. They were very careful with all of my furniture, and got so much more stuff loaded into my truck and trailer than I imagined was possible! These guys are pro's! They were effi…Read Morecient, polite, cautious, and took direction well. I will definitely hire them again.
Ralph and his crew did a fantastic job! They moved everything, took care with the furniture and fragile items, and were very friendly and personable. Truly professionals. I would use them again, and will recommend them to friends.
Nick was Great he and his associate were early and ready to work on the day of the move. He communicated with me several times before the day of the move. They stayed on task even when I wasn't sure what should be moved next. They were extremely professional. They took great care in handling all of our belongings from the smalle…Read Morest box to largest couch. I am very pleased with their service and I will use them again.
I know I didn't give 5 stars but I rarely do for anything, so 4 stars for me is very high rating, I reserve 5 stars for the miraculous! But, the movers who came and did the work were on time, worked fast but careful, They listened to my suggestions but knew their job. I would recommend Hector and his helper (I can;t remember…Read More his name?) And am planning to have them help me again.
I was impressed with the work they did. Very personable. They unloaded a 16 foot pod in 3 hours and I had two very heavy items.Show Response
Thank you I always love when I hear my guys did a great job.

These guys are Rock Stars! They took my job same day and were communicative throughout the process. Ralph was very careful while at the same time very efficient at unloading the truck. Ralph and one other guy had the 16 foot truck unloaded in less than 2 hours. I could not believe it. Ralph and his guys are all very polite …Read Moreand professional, and I would recommend them to everyone. I will also note they are one of more reasonably priced companies. I will definitely use these guys again if I need any assistance in the future.
When we used Stress Free Moves they were on time. They were not prepared to wrap some of our items (dressers, desks). During the move they informed us that they needed to leave to purchase materials to wrap the above-mentioned items. This took approximatley 30 minutes. They informed us that we would not be charged for the delay …Read More(this was good). I think one of he movers worked harder than the other, he seemed more organized and his strength was in organizing boxes and furniture for travel. On the other hand, his parntner seemed to be less of a team player. At times he did not seem like team player. When his partner offered suggestions or directions on how tobetter position items fot moving he seemed resistant or non-receptive. This often times caused me to intevene and provide direction(s). Especially becuse I have moved these items before and I too know the most effective way to move them. This usually help to reduce the tension and most likely added validity to his partners suggestions/directions. I think that there could have been more team work and coordination, The only other suggestion I have, is that movers should pay more attention to labels and pre-packaged items and how they should be handle (for example, glass, fragile, or items packaged in plastic). All items should be given careful attention and if and when there is a discrepency, then on should consult with the customer. In the future, I would choose more experienced movers.
I loved my movers in every way! They were responsible with my time--they communicated before the move and arrived on time. They were energetic, polite, amusing and helpful. They worked quickly and nearly effortlessly. They were masters of Tetris! Meaning they packed everything in tightly and I had much more room in the con…Read Moretainer than I anticipated, and could take even more of my belongings than I had planned. Every object was handled carefully, but I am especially grateful for their treatment of the precious items of religious and spiritual significance that I had to move. They were extremely respectful and careful with these items. I wish I could take them with me to unload at my destination! Thanks, guys!
Both workers were on time and ready to work....in fact they were so efficient (and careful with our furniture) that they finished moving all the designated furniture we requested in less than an hour!....I did not request or consider a refund on the remaining time because they accomplished everything that was asked of them...I j…Read Moreust ran out of things for them to do! They were more than prepared to go the distance and I appreciated their willingness even after I explained I didn't have anymore for them to do...great workers. Please convey my gratitude....

They were professional & friendly. They were on time and fun to work with. They were relaxed and their attitudes made me relax, which I appreciated! They listened to us and we worked well together. They hardly stopped the whole 3 hours--we had to encourage them to break for water. I would totally hire them again...so happy we…Read More did. Well worth the money.
The helpers were on time, worked very hard, were friendly, respectful of my property, helpful and prepared. I was amazed that they were able to fit everything in the storage container. I would definitely recommend them and would use them again.
I hired two workers to move living room furniture from a neighbor's apt. to my upstairs apt. I highly recommend my workers and their names were Forrest and Jack. They were very bright, funny and helpful. In NO way did I feel we would move all the furniture in two hours, yet they finished easily in 90 min. They also located my l…Read Moreost wallet. Forrest rehooked up both my cable TV and my neighbors as well. My neighbor had left junk all over his furniture which infuriated me! They neatly moved all his stuff off. (which I did not feel was their job). Such patience! My cat was missing and Jack found her for me! They even helped arrange my furniture so it looked better and gave me more room. Tip them each at least $20, as they work very very hard. and deserve it. I actually had fun, and would hire them again for sure.
Our movers were prompt, prepared for the job. Super hard workers that kept working until the job was complete. They respected our goods and made sure to cover them appropriately. I would recommend them and hope to get the same movers when we need assistance in a few weeks.
This was the worst moving team I've ever hired. They arrived several hours late and they took twice as long to move my stuff as any other company has ever taken. One man barely moved anything while the other man did most of the work. The one who did most of the work was on his cell phone a lot of the time. My furniture was d…Read Moreamaged because it was loaded in the truck incorrectly. I cannot recommend this moving company.Show Response
I'm sorry you were not happy with our load job. I loaded everything very protected and since it was a load only, damaged could have occurred while you were driving or by the unloader. I wish you could have called me to discuss damage. We finished your move in two hrs so not sure where you say it took too long. It was an upstairs appt. We had to load truck around car as you requested, do to car not being able to be removed. We were 1hr late do to other jobs went over but you seamed ok.

Stress Free Moves and Packing did a great job for us!

Full crew of four showed up on-time and ready to work. Our house is on a pretty big hill - and they didn't miss a beat.
