Hire A Helper Goes to Bat in a Pinch

Here at HireAHelper we are always looking for ways to beat back the negative stories about our industry by providing professional service, earning positive customer feedback and spreading goodwill all around. A few days ago we found the perfect opportunity to do something extra special in this regard, timed perfectly to honor May as National Moving Month.

According to the New York Daily News it seems Mets power-hitting first baseman (and…ahem…fellow USC alum) Lucas Duda was the target of a rob-job while the team was on the road. Before leaving town on April 6th Lucas handed his apartment keys to a representative of the moving company the Mets hired to move Duda while he was away. When he arrived at his new apartment on April 17th he found his door open and $1600 worth of stuff missing.

While this doesn’t shine a positive light on the movers no official statements have been made as to their possible involvement. Still, for someone fully involved in the moving industry and deeply committed to its success, this kind of story is tough to digest. But hey! I’m part of this country’s greatest marketplace for movers and I can do something about it! So even though we can’t do anything to help our friend Lucas (until his next move), we can jump in and help out his fans!

For the entire month of May we’ll be offering a free move* for each home run that Lucas Duda hits, home or away, win or lose, left field right field or deep to center. Here’s how it works:

The first Mets fan to email Lucas Duda’s name to [email protected] after each home run he hits wins $200 worth of moving labor, compliments of HireAHelper.

That’s all there is to it! Just like that, when it’s time for your next move, you’ll be that much closer to your own new home.

We offer much more than just free, however. HireAHelper has got your back if anything goes wrong. Visit our online marketplace and read real, unfiltered reviews of our movers and know exactly who you’re hiring before they even show up. Plus get peace of mind with our free insurance and money-back service guarantee, meaning you can be sure we’ll slide into action if any issues arise.

This is our industry. We know what works for people. And we’re teaming up with our fellow baseball fans to bring that message home.
