My family and I will be relocating to Billings, MT in July. Any reputable companies in town that can provide a few moving helpers to simply unload the truck?

There is a casual labor office on 4th Ave. N. I don't know anything about the organization, but they seem to have several husky guys available at any given time.
Let's see, phone book...
Ah, yes, the name of the place is "Labor Ready", (406)252-8989

You may have some luck checking on Craig's List. It has worked for me. Labor Ready is a good idea too.

Yes, be sure to check into Labor Ready. When we were looking for help to load our truck for moving I called all the places listed in the phone book or on the internet and they were VERY EXPENSIVE!!!!! Save yourself the time of looking up & calling them if you want to save some money. Seems that Labor Ready has guys come in there every morning looking for work. Best of luck to you!

Also check the college. There are usually starving students eager to do whatever work is available at whatever rate you care to pay, tho in my experience (having used college students to help me move) they are often not particularly competent at physical labor.

I forgot to mention another thing. When we moved to a new town I called ahead to some churches that I thought I might want to visit or become affiliated with. If you are a churchgoing person you might want to do that and ask for the youth pastor. One here in Gillette lined up a bunch of kids to help us unload the truck as a service project. Although we did not choose their church as our home church they were still very gracious and I've seen a couple of the kids around town since then and they are very friendly. They seemed to enjoy helping us out. We bought them pizza after everything was unloaded and that was all the pay they needed!!!
