Moving is a pain. Go the DIY route, and you could strain your back lifting heavy boxes. Go the full-service route, and you could end up spending thousands of dollars on movers unnecessarily. HireAHelper provides an excellent middle-of-the road solution for people who are interested in hiring local movers on an a la carte basis.
The most stressful part of a move isn’t renting a truck or packing boxes, it’s the physical labor itself. Use HireAHelper to hire local loading and unloading help, even while you manage the truck rental and packing process on your own. Visit the HireAHelper website, enter the date when you’re planning to move, and the zip code of the location where the loading or unloading will take place. HireAHelper will provide you with a list of helpers who can provide labor on that date. Get a more accurate quote by entering additional information about your move, like the number of helpers, the number of hours you’ll need them for, and any especially large items that need to be loaded. HireAHelper provides useful information like business profiles, past customer reviews, credentials, and available equipment for each helper listed on its site.
When you’ve settled on a helper for your move, book the professional directly through HireAHelper. The price you pay is confirmed, which means there should not be any additional travel fees or surprise charges on your service date. After you’ve reserved with a credit card, your helpers will call to confirm. HireAHelper gives you the option of cancelling up to 24 hours before your move date, and any payments you send are held in escrow until both parties are satisfied.
