Their drive to get done was missing at times. It caused us to be on the job a lot longer. But they were very nice guys and very respectful to me and the client.Show Response
I'm sorry Dennis but you are mistaken, the crew kept reporting to me throughout the job that you were not getting the items off of your semi truck at any significant pace which caused the crew to have to take way longer then your job should have. It actually took so long waiting for you that it caused us to have to reschedule another job. You lacked guidance on how to assemble your cases for display and expected the crew to know how to assemble them. You also told me there was only 1 case and you showed up with 4.

I surly hope I got thier names correct. Alex & Abraham were on time, looked at everything they were going to pack, that took maybe 5 minutes . They braced the doors for exits and started packing the POD. They hardly stopped for the time they were here. Super polite and kind. I would surly. Use and recommend this company aga…Read Morein.
I picked HireAHelper because they were the best priced and got great reviews. And I am not sorry! They managed to change my order on short notice and the two guys who showed up were not only fast and efficient but friendly too.

A pleasure to work with from the ease of booking to follow up and the actual job. Great business.
These guys were great! Arrived on time, got done early, knew what they were doing, and made things nice and easy! They were even able to load things so efficiently that we needed one less shipping container than we did in our last move, which was just amazing. If I ever need movers in Washington again they will be my go-to.
The guys showed up on time. The first thing they did was plug in their cell phones and they checked them after every trip to the trailer. They left SO MUCH stuff in my house. It took 4 more packed minivans load after they were "done". Would never use them again.Show Response
The guys showed up on time, filled your first 42ft trailer then waited for the next 42ft trailer had both of them filled in 3hrs which was exactly what you paid for? It is not our fault that after filling 2 42ft trailers that you didn't have any other vessels for us to load? The crew "checking" their phones after every trip from the house will be taken care of but please don't leave reviews with untruths.
~ Helpful Movers
Super awesome service. These young men were so polite and needed little direction. Customer service and beyond. Expedited our Pod load, asked questions, and ever left the house without somethimg in their hand. Thank you for making this part of our move so positive.
3-1/2 stars. They were nice young men that were quick and effecient. BUT.... they often didn't consider the work at hand. For example, they filled our den with boxes, knowing full well there was furniture to go in there.... so only half the furniture made it into the den, the rest was put in the hall for me to deal with. They we…Read Morere also instructed to put some items in the backyard or side of the house, and some of the items were put on top of the hot tub cover which could have damaged it. A little more thought on the part of the workers would have been nice. Otherwise, everything went fairly well.
Great job by a great team. Our possessions were treated with care and they did an excellent job of packing a 26 foot truck so well that nothing was damaged.Show Response
Thank you Douglas, we appreciate the awesome review hope you enjoy your bew home!

He was late and my four movers and I had to wait to start as I was hiring him for his expertise of packing the pod. He was not as knowledgeable as I had hoped, however he was a very nice person and friendly.Show Response
Your mover was 30 mins late which you were called over 2hrs before hand to let you know his first job ran over and you were fine. We finished the job in 1 hour and the mover you had has loaded hundreds of pods and is very knowledgeable in loading them. I'm sorry you felt that he wasn't skilled at packing your pod.
~ Helpful Movers
These guys were super. My POD delivery did not go as planned so they drove to the POD place and loaded my stuff from the POD into their moving truck. I got my stuff on the day I'd planned (and taken off work) with their help. I really appreciated their flexibility, And, they were very professional; they knew how to load and unlo…Read Moread the PODs. I cannot say enough good things about them.
Moo & Abraham were fantastic! They made loading 80+ heavy boxes along with some furniture look easy. Such polite gentlemen who called to ask if OK to come 1/2 hr early. Worked for 2 hrs. and got a job done that husband and self would require days to accomplish. Professionals with a great attitude. Thank you Helpful Movers!.
I had scheduled two helpers for 10:30. It was garbage day and when I went out to get the cans at 10:15 they were in their car waiting to get started. They moved all the furniture and packed in the Pods. They finished in less than two hours. Good work by two strong friendly young men.
I had the privilege to have Zack and Abraham work for me. I must say that I have never seen a harder working pair of men in a very long time. There were non stop and did not have not one negative thing to say. If they are indicative of the caliber of workers your company has. Then my hats off to you. They were on time and ROCKED…Read More it! Thank you so much!

The movers were on time but not very experienced in taking apart shelving and headboards. They did not have any basic tools like screwdrivers or hammers. They were respectful, and I appreciated them moving things slowly in order to take care of everything. I would use them again, especially as they gain more experience.
Dave and Mu did an excellent job! From the time they arrived and introduced themselves to when they finished they were friendly, courteous, efficient, and extremely professional.

The three guys great. only one was on time but one also had a flat tire and I was told he would be late. Extremely polite and ensured they knew exactly what I wanted moved. They were done in less time, highly efficient, and tidy. I would recommend them.
I could not have been more pleased with a moving experience than I was with Helpful Movers. The service provider worked with me in every way possible to get my needs met.

This was our second pod loaded with the help of Helpful Movers. Just like the last time, the main packer Terry did an amazing awesome job! We are so glad we hired them to help us! They were very courteous and professional. I would recommend them to anyone!
I will never use hire a helper again!! These movers rip me off!! They were told what to and not to put in the pod. They did not follow directions found things in the Pod that should not have been in there. They did not pack the Pod fully I had to then pay someone else to come in and try to repack some of the stuff in a limited …Read Moretime so could not get all the stuff out have no clue items are damaged or what shape they will arrive in when I get my pod they were in a hurry to leave because they had another job I did not know that they were on a time frame horrible horrible service they were not hard workers they were very slow it should not have taken them the 4 hrs time. I had pictures of how they packed things too. then called hireahelper with my complaint and they're only will were only willing to give me an hour of time back which unsatisfactory never again will I use this service
Although they were an 90mins late past their scheduled arrival (fault of the booking company, not their own), they did an amazing job. It was like they were playing Tetris with the moving boxes, I can’t believe how well everything fit in the truck, I was astounded. Definitely recommend!
The two helpers seemed to have some issues with deciding how to best load my pod. Instead of making sure all the furniture got in then loading boxes around the furniture they loaded the back wall with boxes then started putting in furniture without regard for what had to be loaded. Also one of the men was constantly on the pho…Read Morene about other jobs. They had no moving equipment with them and marked up several walls after we had painted for the new buyer.
Dave and Marquise took great care of our house while loading up the furniture. They had to remove heavy furniture from the first and second floor, and never wavered.

Jeannette, As was stated in the responding email we completed your job in 2 hours as requested even with you micromanaging every single detail and not being prepared for the move, I'm not sure why you're trying to blame us for services performed when they were done in the time that was requested. You were unprepared for your move we had to take things out several times because you wanted to repack them differently than you had originally wanted them packed. Nothing was broke nothing was damaged
~ Helpful Movers
The two movers were on time, and prepared for the job. They worked hard during the 2 hour period we needed. Only one minor thing was some boxes were stacked against a newer painted wall, and left smuge marks. Yes, I would have no problem using those two movers again. Also when looking for boxes I noticed the boxes marked fragil…Read Moree when laying on the top sides or on their sides.
They arrived a little late (10-15 minutes) from when they said they were going to start. Once they arrived though, they got right to work. The 4 guys did a tremendous job, loading up the truck in about an hour. They worked quickly, diligently, and do a fantastic job packing. Nothing loose and there was still room to spare. I wou…Read Moreld recommend using Helpful Movers, as I would use them again.
We were scheduled to start at 11 in the morning. Due to scheduling issues, they did not show up until 5:30 at night. I got one phone call around 11:30, but then all further communication was pushed by me. Management of the move was bad. Now, on the flip side, the helpers were outstanding - they had already had a long day and my …Read Morejob was added to their list. The worked their butts off, took good care of my stuff, and were amazing at wedging everything into the storage locker. I'd use the helpers again in a heartbeat - their company, not at all.
Because of an issue with our pod delivery we needed to adjust the schedule date of our move. The person I spoke with, I think his name was John, was so kind and accommodating. He went out of his way to find a crew to do the move at a different time and even told me that I would need less hours that I had booked, saving me money…Read More! The crew, Destin and Aaron, showed up early and waited patiently while the pod was unloaded. When the pod was ready they got down to business right away. They were fast, efficient, professional, and nice guys. They did not damage any of our belongings. I highly recommend. Thanks guys!
They did a good job overall especially with the packing of the efficiency of packing of the POD. Problems: one hour late but did not cause us a problem. What was estimated 3 hour packing process took 5.5 hours for two people for a 16 foot long OD. While packing the POD three boxes of clearly marked "Fragile Christmas Dishes" we…Read Morere tipped over and dropped to the ground(have picture). the packer said do not worry they are OK. By the time my wife said that she wanted to open the boxes and check, they already buried behind two rows. A 1 inch by 3/4 inch dent was made in a hall wall. (have Picture) .
I needed Helpful Movers for a two part moving task. It involved no driving but a good deal of moving heavy or bulky items from the garage into the house as well as moving items from a 16 foot storage pod into the garage, I walk with the aid of a prothesis so my heavy moving is limited. I needed the services of a good movin…Read Moreg company, and the two employees from Helpful Movers who arrived at the house were extraordinarily helpful movers. First off, they arrived on time. When they entered the house, they introduced themselves, and I showed them the rooms in which the garage furniture was to be placed. They were very accommodating, and they listened. They asked questions when they didn’t understand how I wanted something placed and their manner was always extremely pleasant. We then went into the garage and things started to change location. Both men worked continuously until the furniture was moved and positioned in the house and then they immediately went to work on the pod and moved those boxes and furniture into the garage. Both were extremely respectful of the furniture and other items and I can confidently say that not a mark was put on any of it. These two employees made my day as well as the move back into the house infinitely easier. My brother and his wife have a move coming in a couple of months and Helpful Movers absolutely will have that job! I can not say enough nice things about Helpful Movers and the people they hire. I give them the highest rating of any company I have ever hired to help me move.
Mover showed up on time, was very helpful in terms of knowing how to load items to make them fit in the truck, was strong enough to do the job, had knowledge of how to use an appliance dolly, was very respectful! This is the second time I have used this service and 2nd time I am very pleased with the worker sent.
The movers showed up on time, and worked hard. But they went 2 hours over, broke one of our dressers. Damaged our coffee table. Bent our bed when we asked them not to. The way we had things set up for them, and the amount of stuff I personally moved that morning before they showed up, they should have been done in 2 hours inste…Read Moread of the 5 they took. They took everything apart that wasn't even necessary. So extra trips were needed to get everything to the truck. The truck was poorly loaded. I had to call a friend to help unload so I could return the truck on time! I wouldn't recommend this company unless you've got a small amount to move.
Justin was great, however I thought I was paying for 2 movers. Assisting him were a 120 lb high school kid and another slightly built young man with severe carpal tunnel syndrome. My 50 year old wife hauled the same item up the driveway that they did in half the time. No kidding! If I had 2 Justin's the service would have been w…Read Moreorth it, but sadly I felt that I was assisting Justin babysit for a day. Do not recommend, really disappointed!
One showed up on time, other was 30+ minutes later. Seemed okay at first, but once we arrived to our destination we discovered how haphazard they placed items. Ruined my dresser leaving the drawers in empty, with nothing supporting inside, placed heavy boxes on top so it collapsed in the middle. Also ruined one of our TVs, which…Read More we boxed in a $20 padded TV box. It was laying diagonal after falling and having a living room chair they stacked to the ceiling(WTF???) Fall on it. Find a different mover or just hire tweakers from the corner cause that's pretty much what they are.
The workers treated my belongings with care, worked very hard and were pleasant overall. They really knew how to maximize space in filing the POD I had ordered. I didn't think they could fit as much as they did. I was vey pleased with their work and the results.
I would like to give 10 stars to James and his staff at Helpful movers.

I would without a doubt use the service again. To whomever reads this I am usually not a survey taker or one who leaves feedback positive or negative but I really felt that these people need recognition. the service helpful movers overall was really simple and user friendly it was me that made it more difficult than it had to be I over thought it I only recommend better advertisement I stumbled on the entire service by accident. GREAT WORK !
I hired two guys for four hours to pack a truck. It ended up taking them 9 hours!! They were slow, took smoke breaks and long bathroom breaks. No hustle whatsoever. They "comped us" time for when one worker wasn't there. Of course I'm not paying for when someone isn't there working - don't act like it's a favor! Now that we are …Read Moreat our new house and got everything unpacked - a tremendous amount of damage. Some wear and tear and accidents I understand but there is a lot of damage to a lot of items. My house undoubtedly looks crappier with all these damaged things now. I completely regret hiring them in the first place, giving any tip at all and even being cordial while they were there.
Awesome team, went above and beyond despite getting locked out at Public Storage. I called 911, a patrol officer came and I got the u-haul and myself out but the three guys in 2 pick-up trucks got locked in.

Only 2 of 4 movers arrived at the job on time, and the 3rd was 1.5 hours late. The 4th mover never showed up. Subsequently, the job took several hours longer than anticipated, and the crew left before the job was done (i.e. 2 hours more work) to make it to their next job (already pushed back 3 hours). Needless to say, this was n…Read Moreot what we wanted or expected from Helpful Movers. On the plus side, the crew was pleasant professional; we'll see how their packing job measures up once we unload it on the East Coast.
Showed up a few minutes early, ready to go. Very polite and considerate of our belongings. Worked fast and efficiently, and were prepared to work the extra hour we had to add at the end to finish packing out the containers. James the coordinator was also very helpful and flexible. Would definitely use this service again.
Hard workers took care with everything. Lost the keys to my two storage units. Had to wait almost 2 hours before locksmith could open both.

They were late and were determined to still leave at the same planned finish time which was 3 hours versus 4 hours. They did not come with the equipment to move frig or washing machine.

Movers were hard workers. They did a good job. We felt we were overcharged for a piano service when we had a professional driver there.Show Response
Thank you for the feedback Morris. Just to address the Piano issue, you were only charged for moving 2 uprights and you actually had 2 Baby Grand Pianos. Technically we were not even supposed to move those and that is by rule of Hireahelper.

His crew was awesome - arrived on time, listened to everything I voiced concerns about throughout the packing of the POD, helped me any time I needed it, continually offered "just ask & we'll move it for you" including a few heavy boxes into my RV. They were dressed clean, there was no smoking nor even smoker smell, and Dave did a phenomenal job packing the POD tight. And extra care was given to my precious piano that was my mother's she bought in the early 60s. Mark & Justin were extremely careful with my items and walls and doors. They moved along at a quick pace, too. Moving is just stressful and chaotic by nature let alone in my situation (being forced to move), and James & his crew are who I will call with any future moves (like unloading when I find a home). I highly recommend Helpful Movers!
I asked for 3 Helpful Movers, anticipating they could unload my PackRat container in around 2 hrs. They moved all in good time, exactly where I asked. Highly recommend them for any unloading you need. I suspect they can pack well too but can't rate that for me. Will definitely keep their info handy for future needs.
They cranked their customer service up to an 11. They made this one of the best experiences with moving I've ever had, even though we had to start later than originally intended. They also had a truck available to bring some items from the old to my new place. Everything survived getting into the pod as well as the stuff they mo…Read Moreved to my place, nothing broke.

These guys did an excellent job! They worked very quickly and continuously over 2 hours, completely unloading my 24' truck. Very polite, upbeat, and positive the entire time! I don't plan on moving again for a while, but when I do I'll definitely be giving them a call!
Jason and Robert were an excellent team - professional, thorough, and knowledgeable about moving furniture. They showed up early and finished on time. They helped by pointing out several issues with broken furniture that I didn't even realize so was appreciative. And they offered to put together my desk (complicated glass des…Read Morek which is quite heavy and awkward) in record time. They didn't have to do that.

We had an internal office move to replace carpet in several offices and they did a great job.

They were a couple of minutes late one day and called to let us know they were stuck in traffic. We have an additional space that will be getting new carpet and I will be calling them again.

This was a last-minute job - literally. We were moving furniture for holiday guests the day before and my husband injured himself.

Even though HireAHelper gave the movers a 4 hour window, they insisted on calling and setting up an 9 am arrival. So of course that's what I expected.

Would have been Five star service! Movers showed up on time, were very courteous, and carefully packed my POD container with more than we thought would fit.

The movers arrived on time ready to work. They were fast and did a great job of packing delicate furniture.

On time show up and get the jobs done ! They even finished jobs in 2 hours ( 3 hour anticipated ), and Hireahelper.com gave me the credit for one hour on the same day they charged. Great experience and I would recommend every movers to use their service !
This was a long-distance move - so everything I own was in the container I rented from PODS. The container was somehow misplaced by PODS and delayed about a week. They promised several different "delivery dates" that came and went with no delivery of the container and lots of lame (and some untrue) excuses. Arrgghh. However…Read More, James was professional, patient and understanding, and as soon as the container arrived he scheduled his 2 workers to come and unload. He kept in touch with me throughout a very difficult and stressful situation. Corey and Matt were on time, ready to work and very respectful of my belongings and my new home. They worked efficiently to complete the job in less than 2 hours. Would definitely recommend Helpful Movers. In this high-stress situation, Helpful Movers was just that - very, very helpful. Thanks, James, Corey and Matt. Job well done.
The two men who unloaded the moving POD were energetic, hard working and efficient. The furniture was being moved to the 3rd floor. It was a warm day, about 90 degrees, however this did not not slow these two down. I highly recommend this service!
The communication from HireAHelper was good, they did call a day ahead to discuss a scheduling snafu. Dave and Bay were fantastic, worked quickly, and took care with the items moved. They were very personable, respectful and friendly. I would use them again.
We had requested four movers. They were really nice, very polite and respectful. they made sure not to damage any of the items and was very careful in moving our furniture store, etc. I would definitely use them again.

The packers did a good job and were careful with everything, but they did not bring any moving pads as I was promised by James so they had to wrap furniture with clear wrapping that fortunately I provided.

My two helpers were both pleasant and basically did what I needed, but they did not seem to have any sense of urgency and that's important when the customer Is paying by the hour.

They were not on time. They were a half hour late. They were not prepared for the job. Came with no plastic wrap, no tape, nothing. My husband had to help them. They couldn't life the big stuff. That's what we hired them for. They were respectful. Absolutely not. Waste of money. Actually, I want a call from management.
I have used this company twice now and both times I have had amazing service. On time, a job well done, and always hard workers. I even thought I booked my day and realized 2 hours prior that I had only quoted it. They were still able to get someone to me at the required time and they were amazing. I would totally recommend this…Read More company.
Stay Away!!! They do not deliver on their promises. I requested 4 movers for 5 hours. I got 3 movers for 3 of those hours. I was promised reimbursement for the missed hours. I am writing this review 3 weeks and multiple calls after the service was completed. To date, I have received nothing as I was promised. We had 3 beds that …Read Morewe needed help setting up and still today one bed is not set up at the new house and our main bed that has multiple drawers, does not have a single correctly functioning drawer. I was promised the issues would be looked into, and a check would be sent. It's nearly a month after service and nothing has been done. Not a good experience and wouldn't recommend to anyone.Show Response
Dave, I sent your refund back to you as we had discussed. I also made sure we did our best to get the 4th guy out to you as fast as we could once we were made aware they were late. He got there an hour and a half late and you were not charged for the time he missed or the extra time the whole crew stayed over. I am very sorry for the inconvenience that this caused you during your move and it is not typical of what our company stands for. I do hope you enjoy your new home.

We ordered 4 movers - only had three for the majority of the time. Our truck was poorly loaded causing us to have to leave items behind and caused damage to other items. the workers were slow and showed no care for the fact that we were on a severe time schedule - this why we ordered double the recommended amount of workers and …Read Moreit still took 6 hours for them to load our two bedroom apartment. ---- the customer service provided by them was also poor when we tried to correct the situation that day. However the staff at Hire-a-helper were great and took care of our complaints. We would never use these movers again - however we would use Hire a helper for our next move!Show Response
Tammi, I have to say that after everything we did to get you moved it is truly amazing that you would leave a review like this. Your move that you booked for 2hrs was never going to happen under any circumstances. When you had booked service with us, I had asked if you had an elevator reserved in which you said you did and in fact you didn't. Then you had a 4 bedroom apt to load not 2. Still not only did I compensate you with a discount but also took 2hrs of service we provided off to help you!

Helpful movers really did the trick for us. I thought it'd take 2.5 hours to unload my 8' X 16' PODS unit and load it into my public Storage unit. instead, they were done in an hour! And they packed the storage unit great. They were courteous and in time. I'd certainly use them again. You couldn't go wrong!Show Response

The guys were on time, courteous and respectful of what they were moving. Some constructive criticism: be mindful of how the boxes are marked. When it says kitchen, place box in/near kitchen, not in bedroom etc. Otherwise, the guys were friendly and professional; they really hustled!

We had a limited amount of time to move into our new place because it took us so long to find an apartment. We had to have the uhaul back by 4 pm and had the helpers come at 2 pm.

James at Helpful Movers was responsive and made coordination of meeting his team a breeze. The two movers showed up within the 30 minute window with their moving dollies. Both men were very professional, friendly, and timely. I really appreciate them helping me secure a parking space in downtown Seattle close to the entry doo…Read Morer! To start, we did a walk thru of where furniture, boxes, and bags needed to go and they carefully transported each piece. At the end, Steve, the main mover, did a walk thru to make sure things were in the correct rooms and helped close up the U-Haul truck for me. My experience with Helpful Movers was without stress, only gratitude. I would use them again and certainly recommend them without a second thought!Show Response
