Des Moines Moving Tips

Whether you’re heading to Des Moines or just doing some daydreaming, we’ve got you covered.

Check out these moving day hacks to keep things easy and efficient.


iMoving offers a wide range of auto transporters to get your dream garage from point A to point B. You can only drive one car at a time, and you probably don't want to shove a bunch of moving boxes into your Lambo, anyways. Fortunately, our auto transporters have you covered - and if you book a covered trailer, they'll have your car covered too.

When you move to a more built-up or urban area, chances are they won't let you park an entire semi truck in front of your apartment. Your movers will have to park the main truck at a staging area, and use a smaller box truck or van to transport your stuff to (and from) the trailer. This is called a moving shuttle, and the inconvenience comes at a price. Blame your city council.

To prepare for a move in Des Moines, we recommend taking a few important steps. First, make sure you've got a job lined up at your destination. Secondly, downsize as much as possible before shopping for movers. If you're doing your own packing, box up your stuff starting with the least-used items, and always pack an essentials bag so you aren't stuck rooting through boxes for your toothbrush or clean underwear.

It's always a good idea to get insurance, and in the interest of being responsible, we're not going to tell you to skip it. However, if you're feeling risky and you're only moving a couple blocks (without anything fragile thrown in the mix), you may be able to get away with the basic coverage offered by your movers.

Movers need to have an official Department of Transportation (DOT) number, which you should be able to find on their website. If a moving company handles long distance moves that cross state lines, they'll also need a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) number. Don't forget to check reviews and look for any insurance info they may feature on their website.
