We Know What We're Doing

September 03, 2013

In 1969 my parents Curt and Norma Hames, moved me, my brother and sister from Bangkok, Thailand (by way of Goodman, Missouri) to Marion, Iowa.*

As a 9-year old, I was always amazed at how Hames-The Homes People could take a full-size house and move it with a big truck, called a toter. As we move a beautiful double sectional home from our display center in Marion today, I am still in awe. I really admire our incredible service techs. They are well-trained, certified and licensed to move mobile homes over city streets and highways - and do so efficiently!

Yes, yes I know it's kind of a pain when you get stuck behind one of these magnificent structures on Collins Road. But next time, please take some time to look at the solid walls, beautiful siding and shingled roofs. These homes were built indoors, using the latest technology, energy efficient insulation, and minimum construction waste.

Hames has sold 11,311 homes since 1969. Many of our customers love the mobile home lifestyle and have purchased multiple homes from us! We have also sold 1733 listing homes for individuals and financial institutions over the years. In short: we know what we're doing.

Please call us today at (319) 377-4863 or contact us if you'd like more information on the easy lifestyle of manufactured homes.

*How we moved from Bangkok to Marion, Iowa is a long story, worthy of a blog for another day.
