      Thanks For Visiting The VAN MAN! 

We can help you move locally in the Des Moines/Ames, Iowa area or to/from anywhere in the midwest or cross-country.

Hi, I'm Bernie the Van Man!! Based in Des Moines, over the last decade we've moved hundreds of people locally and long-distance. We have customers in 40 states and can move anywhere across the country. We specialize in smaller moves: apartments, townhomes, condos, small homes, and we do larger homes as well. You can see action shots of us here on this site, reviews from happy customers and a list of recent long distance moves.

For local moves, we use a van, pickup, large trailer or moving truck. We do a lot of small jobs no other movers will do. No job is too small and we do everything from picking up furniture, move in/out of storage, or larger full home moves.

If you're moving long-distance, we will provide the truck, load it, drive to your new home, and unload it for a low flat fee that includes all expenses and labor. We can also pull your car on a trailer and even take pets. Our quotes include a breakdown of each expense and labor charge. As you can see from our reviews, people LOVE our service. We are highly efficient and economical, saving our customers $ over the high cost of bigger moving companies. We do our best to make your move easy, comfortable, and enjoyable.

I've been driving professionally for many years, am CDL licensed, and am on my 2nd million miles of prof driving. I'm highly trustworthy, friendly, and love traveling the highways of our beautiful country while helping my customers ease their moving anxiety and save them $. Last year we did 50 long-distance moves traveling over 45,000 miles.

1) Driving and delivering cars & specialty vehicles long distance from one location to another. Ive been doing this since 2003 for snowbirds & anyone needing a vehicle relocated.

 Delivering large items including furniture, home improvement materials, exercise equipment, snowblowers & other machinery anywhere in Iowa and the midwest.

If you are moving your home, a vehicle, or yourself locally in the Des Moines/Ames area or long-distance to/from Iowa or anywhere in the midwest, please contact us for a quote. We will do our best to give you the lowest rate and the best service. We look forward to working with you to make your move a great experience!
