    The client reps were friendly and cooperative. The movers at both ends were efficient but definitely better in Iowa than in California. I was very appreciative that Mayflower made arrangements to deliver on the day I suggested. Thank you for that.

    Movers from West DesMoines were professional and courteous. Manager Chris Johnson was very helpful and attentive to detail in planning my move. Deb Hurley is the office guru. Her expertise was greatly appreciated.

    From the initial walk thru, working out the details to get the cost down a bit, to the ladies that packed us and the guys that moved us they were all professional, friendly and hard working. I wouldn’t have expected less. We picked Mayflower because of the years I have used them in Indianapolis. Would highly recommend them again. Chris and Deb were great to work with.

    Professional service from start to finish. The manager in the office was very helpful, even supplied me with with free boxes. The agent that came to the house was pretty accurate in his estimate. They delivered as promised. We moved from Iowa to Michigan and the driver (Denny delivered as promised). Told us that our belongings would be there in 5 days AND IT WAS!!. He communicated and kept us updated via texting! the movers were very respectful of my belongings and took great care handling everything. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to move and hiring a moving company.

    Everyone we worked with was great. The estimator was very nice and easy to work with and the truck crew was great on both ends of the move. There was no damage to our property upon delivery. Mayflower was not the least expensive when gathering quotes, but the customer service we received was top notch! Thank you Mayflower.

    The packers were considerate and professional, as well as efficient. This was a delivery of items being sent to my sister from our parents home, both now deceased. It was only 4 pieces of furniture and 7 boxes of assorted items of memoriabilia, books, photographs, etc. A small shipment, but an important one nonetheless. Thank you for handling it with care!

    The Mayflower people on both ends were great.The Des Moines people were able to fit us in the system with a very short lead time. The truck arrived to us here in Florida on time an they unloaded in a timely fashion.

    Overall, the move went very well without any major incidents. Our driver was considerate of the time constraints we had regarding moving out of our high-rise apartment and rearranged his schedule to accomodate the restrictions placed on us by the apartment management. He arrived on time and delivered on time without incident. Very professional, kept his wits and composure, especially when the power went off at the apartment when he and his crew were just to start the move from our eighth-floor apartment.

    Courteous and professional; hard working. though the estimator at the beginning underestimated causing more than one truckload to be delivered.

  • Thomas & Sarah Atkinson

    April 12, 2017

    Overall, it was a good experience.The Men who came to wrap and load the truck in Ankeny were very kind and worked fast. Our only complaint so far is that the men packing did not adequately cover our master bedroom dresser, and there are 2 very noticeable dents in the top. They did a great job bubble-wrapping our slim Tv, artwork, and other glass tops, but the dresser was a big "whoops". We have not unpacked everything yet---about 50% unpacked, but that is the biggest issue so far. The men here in Greensboro were very professional and considerate---they helped us "switch-out" 2 of our old mattresses here in NC so we could replace them with much newer mattresses we brought from Iowa.

    The only issue was the split load which created a delay in receiving all of our belongings at the same time
