All Mighty Movers
This was literally the best moving experience I have ever had. The Movers arrived on time, and moved unbelievably fast. They were very friendly and professional. They moved all of my antiques and fragile items with no damage, and were so careful. They also helped me place the furniture, and moved things around, and did anything extra I asked. I am presently unable to lift or move anything at all, so I really needed a lot of extra help in sorting boxes and putting them in the correct room. The guys were so friendly and accommodating. They were very reasonable and low on their travel time estimates, and completed the entire job in under 4 hours including drive time. It was truly remarkable how fast and efficient they were. I can not say enough good things about this experience and would recommend them to anyone that wants great service that they can count on!

When I think about Alliant moving systems, I only think about professionalism. This is not the first time when I am taking their help, and every time they never fail to surprise me with their work. And the best part is always their affordable rates for the relocation services. Thank you all for your unending hard work, which is really appreciable.

Alliant Moving Systems
When I first heard about Alliant moving systems, I got to hear some good reviews. So, I had to try their service the next time I moved to Sioux City. Their timely services blew my mind away, and I immediately liked them. And the way they took care of my belongings is surreal. Thanks team for the ultimate support from your side.

Alliant Moving Systems
When I first thought about moving to Des Moines, I was too scared of relocating my belongings. I was about to relocate my entire house to a new place. And that’s when a friend recommended Alliant moving systems for the help. Even though I was a bit skeptical in the beginning, but once I took their services, I was quite happy.

Tips & Advices
Yes, it’s best to empty drawers, wardrobes and chests before a move. Items always get knocked around a bit, and doors can fly open even if they’ve been taped. In fact, more often than not, movers will want to remove the drawers from a dresser--or disassemble the wardrobe to be more space-efficient.
Yes, it is customary to tip movers, but the amount varies widely. For full-service moves, a 5 percent tip is suggested, although, for extra service, some people go up to 10 percent . For small local movers, you can give each mover $10 for a few-hour job, or $20-$40 for jobs that take longer.
A bill of lading is the legal contract for the move. It provides a detailed receipt, in addition to a contract between the client and the mover. It authorizes the mover to transport the goods from one specific point to another, and it outlines the exact scope of services, with cost breakdown for those services. It also provides an itemized list of the inventory, and carrier liability protection for each declared item. Finally, it specifies the payment arrangement. Make sure to go over your itemized list extremely carefully before finalizing the paperwork--and get a copy of the full document. A good mover will go over everything on the bill of lading with the customer.
There are several items that moving companies will not move – those items will be listed on a document as “non-allowables.” These items typically fall in three categories: perishables, sentimental/personal items, and hazardous material. Perishables are food and plants. Sentimental/personal value is up to the client to decide, but usually includes jewelry, medical and dental records, personal paperwork, valuables and collectibles. Hazardous material is the tricky category, since it includes a lot of everyday items found in the garage, garden or kitchen. For example, cleaning liquids and pesticides both are considered non-allowable by many companies. Some go so far as to disallow nail polish and batteries.
A binding estimate means that the moving company cannot charge more than the stated amount, though they can lower the final bill if the scope of the job was smaller than expected. A non-binding moving estimate is more likely to wind up costing more than expected, since the movers can increase their rates for unforeseen variables like stairs, “long carry” and materials.
