Hire a Helper was Sued By Uhaul 2011 (Prices Went Up)

ORDER NUMBER: TRUTH101

I came across a lot of one sided reviews. I suspect maybe its bloggers for hire a helper???

Anyways, here is the truth of hire a helper.

In 2010-2011, they were successfully sued by Uhauls Moving Help for hacking and stealing their business model and program. They now have to pay (indefinite?) Uhaul a percentage of any income produced via their website, which clearly states they add $50 to the full cost of every order.

Example: Movers Charges 2 Men 2 Hours $100, Hire a Helper charges the customer $150.

Simply google hire a helper sued by Uhaul and you will see why the prices are higher than the other moving labor companies.

There is a good article on mymovingreviews about Hire a Helper. It was pretty thorough.

Bought: ORDER NUMBER TRUTH

Order Date: 2013-11-17

Pros:
  • Hire a Helper does connect customers with movers for moving labor services
  • and they do provide unbiased information regarding service providers.
  • Cons:
  • Hire a Helper was founded by a hacker who was recently sued by Uhaul. The lawsuits effect can be seen in the pricing model of the business; making it not really in the customers interest.

    Awesome Job!

    Order Number: 830516

    The movers we hired from Hire-A-Helper did an excellent job in loading our 16FT POD. We actually used this service twice, the first time was different movers from the second, but each time was well done. We had a 4 BD RM Home and moved our things into two 16 FT Pods. It took longer for the first event to be completed, and the movers ran over time, but overall it was a good job. The second event went off without a hitch and they actually finished early, although we were still charged for two hours of time. Again, overall a good job.

    Pros:
  • Loaded Things with care to ensure no damage was done to our property.
  • Cons:
  • Took a little longer than expected.

    I was looking for some cheap workers to help me with my backyard. My wife has been nagging me to clean it up with all the junk I have accumulated over the years of being a pack rat. Found hire a helper and hired couple of guys on there. Great experience. They cleared out all the junk and moved it all to the trash. My wife was happy with the cleared backyard.

    Most of the laborers found on hire a helper are college kids looking to supplement their income. How this website works is that you enter in your zip code, day you need help, and the area of work you are looking for assistance. The laborers are cheap and it helps out these kids looking to make extra income while going to school. I have found Jason on there and he did a terrific job with all the house tasks that I ask him to do.

    Super Easy!!!

    Everything about Hire a helper was easy, from the first phone call (and all calls in between!) to the moving day and hard working helpers! They called me to make sure I didn’t need supplies such as furniture pads, bubble wrap and tie downs, so glad they asked because I wouldn’t have thought of it and I did need! They called and confirmed everything which was great. Would definitely recommend! Worth every penny!!

    Very Professional and Efficient

    Order Number # 828838

    We used two hire a helper helpers for two hours moving our belongings from a garage to a PODS storage container.

    The helpers were very polite and professional. They arrived a bit ahead of time (after checking that we were ready over phone) took great care of our belongings, making sure they are stacked correctly (fragile stuff/boxes placed properly), without any damage

    No issues observed on our part

    They definitely met our expectation and their service is highly recommended.

    Made our move easy

    We had two large Pods of furniture and boxes and we used Hire A Helper to help us unload and place them into our new home.

    Hire A Helper made this easy to order and they kept us informed by email every step of the order. Our crew arrived on time and they were gentle with our goods, including a large sofa that went to the 2nd floor via a narrow staircase. They were efficient, polite, and did everything we asked of them. I highly recommend them.

    Great help! Order number 828745

    We had a great experience with Justin and Guy who unloaded out pod. Order number 828745. They communicated by phone the day before and the day of the job. They were on time and after a quick walkthrough they got started right away. These two individuals worked hard, steady and treated our belongings like it was their own. There we no scratches on the walls anywhere in our home. They both are very good at what they do. I would hire them again. In all phases these two workers exceeded our expectations. This was a lot of work that was completed under two hours.

    The team we hired was fantastic!!

    Order Number 827000

    Josh and his crew were incredible. It was time consuming for me to load the 26' UHaul pretty much myself, and my wife suggested we hire someone to unload it. I was skeptical but appreciative. We had a great and professional crew, they were polite and efficient. They were quick in unloading our truck as well. The crew placed every item wherever we liked and even moved stuff we weren't sure about the first time. Katinsky services through Hire a helper was a great choice and a wonderful and hard working crew!!

    Great Work

    Order number 825572 I used this service for moving and it went off very well. The movers were very good at getting everything to fit in in a very small space. It has not been delivered, so as for how securely everything was packed I cannot speak to. Great work, very nice young men. I had 3 flights of stairs and no elevator in my building so I was impressed they were able to get it done so quickly. The whole thing took about 3 hours to move a one bedroom apartment into a pod. It seemed to be too small at first but they ended up being able to make it all fit.

    Order 827302 Best Coast Movers are wonderful!

    Order number 827302

    I hired Best Coast movers through Hire a helper to help me pack a pod with furniture etc from a bathroom and a bedroom.

    Mike and Alfredo from Best Coast Movers were prompt and capable and an absolute joy to work with! They were very pleasant and knowledgeable and organized our pod in a way that makes it very easy for us to access our things while we have our renovations done. I will definitely use them again if I ever need and would highly recommend them to anyone in need of packing or moving services.

    Job Well Done

    I hired two helpers to stack 50 lb bags onto pallets and shrink wrap them. I booked at 2:30PM for the next morning! The guys showed up on time and ready to work! Which they did without complaint, and when finished they wrapped up things quickly and my account was charged. I will be using Hire A Helper again in a couple weeks! Thanks guys for the great service! order number 826848. I do not appreciate that I must add more words to my review as I have stated everything I would like to say. This may have caused me to not leave a review at all since I am now have to spend more of my time writing words that mean nothing. I wuld change this demand if I were you because I am sure that other people just closed their browsers and did not leave a review at all. Its a shame that I am trying to be nice by leaving a review in the first place, and then I have to put up with your review demands to write more then I wanted to. Not smart.

    Cons:
  • Jumping through hoops to leave a review means I will not post another review.

    Master elite is very good.

    Order Number #826581

    Master Elite helped me move all my stuff out of a freight trailer in less than an hour so I would not be charged overtime by the freight ompany. And then they moved everything into the storage unit in the 2nd hour. I recommend them definitely. Hire a helper was flexible with the dates when the freight trailer company said at the last minute that they could not move on a Monday. Master Elite Movers work in the Atlanta suburbs and in Athens Ga.

    Pros:
  • there are many pros
  • Cons:
  • and there are no cons to hiring them.

    Thanks

    I was order number 823087 and I could not have been more pleased. This is a real review from dec of 2019. I have moved many times and have often been very disappointed with less than professional movers that show up to move my belongings. The communication was excellent with helpers texting me with an estimated time then again to let me know they could show up a little early if I was ready. Very professional, I used unpack so their ability to pack the trailer efficiently saved me money! I loved having a choice of helpers on the website with different prices. I selected Mr Man and everything was a advertised. Great way to find help for your move!!

    Crew was fast, but handled with care

    Order Number 813389. I had a great experience with Right Budget Services contracted through Hire A Helper. The crew prepared the furniture (padded, shrink wrapped) with supplies that I purchased. I had a crew of 3+supervisor to load and unload. It took 5 hours (including 1.5 hours for travel) to clear out 2 bedrooms, living room, garage shelving, and about 50 boxes. Beds were assembled at the new location, mirrors attached to the dressers. No damage to my furniture. I insisted that they take a break to rehydrate and eat some pizza because they were burning fuel, constantly in motion. Mistakes on my part (underestimated truck size). And you need to protect the floors if you have heavy, bulky items (refrigerator). Overall, everything went smoothly and I was very comfortable with the crew.
