Truck Load in Berwick, IA

They informed me too late that everything wasn't going to fit in the truck. I should have had them unload somethings and repack the truck. I was forced to make a second trip cross country to collect the rest of my items. They also didn't load full sets of furniture. I had partial dining set, partial bedroom sets,etc. They also didn't fully load the truck, we added items before we left. Not a good experience for me. I wasn't pleased with my service. Will not recommend to others.

Response from Iowa Moving 1
We were very sorry to hear that not everything fit on your truck. Unfortunately the 26 foot moving truck is the largest moving truck available for residential moves. Having reviewed the photos, it doesn’t look like the loader was wasting space; it looks like They loaded floor to ceiling all the way back to the beginning of the door. Please note, that with the last few feet of truck, the crew can’t go all the way to the ceiling as that risks jamming the door closed. Additionally, the last few tiers of items tend to be the more awkward or delicate items that could not be safely loaded earlier in the truck. This is why the last few feet of the load tend to come down a little bit. We are dreadfully sorry that you were not able to make this move in one trip, but I believe the crew was doing everything within their power to take care of you.

Wow. What a great experience! How does anyone move without these movers. Truly a life saver, they really hustled to get it all done and also did an amazing job packing my containers. Highly recommend!!

Furniture Move in West Des Moines, IA

Everything seemed fine. Nice guys and professional. We gave them a big tip... 25%. At the beginning they said they would lay down some mats on the expensive carpet, never did it. I can forgive that. - Two days after the move I inspected the beds they assembled. For the downstairs guest bed, the screws were so loose that the bed looked crooked (that’s why I decided to check the screws). Turns out 4 of the 8 screws were not even in at all! One of the screws was sticking out entirely (I took a picture). Same for the master bed and same for my daughter’s bed upstairs. I had to tighten 80% of the screws. Overall, they were fast and nice guys. But they rushed and the beds were not assembled properly. I really hope this is an isolated incident.

Thank you for your past business with us. We appreciate your feedback. We're glad that you found our movers friendly and professional and on-time. However, we apologize for the issues that you described and had a meeting with the crew members on your move to discuss your concerns as we're always looking to improve. We wish that this problem could have been noticed and communicated earlier to us so that we could have had an opportunity to correct the issue as we would have been more than willing to send a crew back out to address the problem at no additional cost. According to our crew, you were aware that screws from several beds were missing from your previous move with another moving company. Our crew member that assembled your beds also expressed to us of the screws that were not missing, several of the screws were stripped. The situation of the missing/stripped screws made proper bed assembly more difficult. However, we apologize for any screws that weren't fully tightened. We will be reaching out to you within the next few days to offer a formal apology and to address any further concerns you have. Thank you again for your business with us and we're very sorry about the situation.
