Read some of the nice testimonials our customers have written for us:

Hi Dave- Just wanted to let you know that your team got a very nice compliment today. Our lawn care guy was here this afternoon and he told me, "The guys that did your window wells did an amazing job of protecting the lawn!"

He said that usually when that sort of work has been done, things are just a mess, the grass is all torn up and dead, there are ruts, etc. But with ours, he couldn't even tell you had been there, "I don't know how they protected it so well". So thanks so much for the care you took doing my job.

Mark B, Ames

A big THANK YOU to A+ Skidloader Services for the work you did at our home! Dave answered a lot of questions before work ever started and I really appreciated when he told us that while he would be happy to replace some large egress wells for us, they really were in good shape for now and could wait if we preferred.  You always hope for that kind of honesty but don’t always get it.  The work that A+ did for us was completed quickly, is well-done, and we’re very happy with it. We’ll definitely recommend you!

Mark & Lori S.

Just wanted to thank you again for the courteous and professional service throughout our project.  We have had numerous compliments already.  You and your crew were great to work with!  I will be a big advocate for A+ Skidloader Services to anyone that asks.  Please extend my thanks to Kyle, Juan, Nick, and Matt!  They should be proud of their work ethic!  A great bunch of young men!  Take care and be safe!

Craig H, Ames

“Thanks again for a great job yesterday to you and all the guys! So appreciative of the care you and your team took to protect our yard while you were here! Looks better than it did before you came and the work you did is top-notch!”    Hannah R, Johnston

You did a job for us on Madison Court (it is in your blogs on your website) roughly four years ago. Prior to your work, we were having constant problems with water getting into the north side of our basement, as well as water pooling up outside of the house on the north side. I just wanted to let you know that in the four yours since you finished the job, we have not had a single drop of water come into the basement, and we have had some really heavy rains in the last four years! In addition, we are not having any problems with water pooling up outside the north side of the house. So, job well done! We are very pleased.

“You guys are the best in the business!!”
Kyle Van Winkle, Real Estate Concepts, Ames

“I have recommended A+ Skidloader Services to several customers and have always gotten positive feedback and many thanks. They are very much driven by customer satisfaction”.
Jeff Westberg, Outdoor Envisions, Ames

We appreciate the communication and job updates, and please tell your crew they were awesome. Their understanding of what to do, how and when to do it, and how to make things even better was a real positive. Also, they were polite, congenial, and hard-working, and not afraid to talk with me.

We've already had compliments on your work and have shared your info with those who've asked. It's a cliche to say one's work speaks for itself; in this case, it's absolutely true.

Thank you for working with us throughout the past few weeks, including moving the trucks on that last day :)

Sherry and Mitch H., Ames

“ Dave, I am very pleased with the results and have recommended you to 2 neighbors, so far! You have a great crew of workers. Please contact me next year for the 2nd half of the house.
Thank you.”
Pam M, Boone

“ Dave-Everything looks absolutely wonderful.”
Peggy K, Ames

Thank you again for everything! It looks absolutely fantastic, we couldn't have asked for a better result or a better crew! I've already been singing your praises to anyone who will listen to me lately! The grass is coming in nicely in spite of the heat we've been having and everything held up PERFECTLY in the face of that downpour last weekend! Thank you again for everything!
--Emily R, Ames

“It looks great!  I am so impressed that anything was so clean and nice.  I called my son right away to tell him how nice it looks. I’m giving your name to a friend of mine this morning.”
Pam L, Mason City


We received a pretty heavy rain late this morning. Water was running down the new swales. Made us I smile. Thanks for the wonderful job you and the crew did. We are extremely appreciative. 
Tim S., Mason City


“Dave, You were so great to work with. I’m not sure I’ve ever met someone so responsive to all my questions. Thanks for everything!” 
Ben S, Waukee

Had three window wells and covers replaced. Bid one day and there to do the job early the next morning. Outstanding, professional installation. Friendly and polite. Excellent service. I couldn’t be more satisfied.
Jim S. Clive, Iowa

“I was very impressed by your crew's professionalism, efficiency, and the way they cleaned up after themselves. What a great group of hardworking young men!”

E.M., Urbandale, Iowa

Thanks so much for your great service.  We appreciate you getting the final work done so quickly.  The young men you had helping you were really great kids.  The result looks great and I’ll be happy to recommend you to others.
Ken H, Ames, Iowa

So happy with this project, that mess in the backyard had bugged me ever since we bought the house. It’s such a relief to have it so nicely done now, and it has definitely exceeded our expectations! I also wanted you to know that a complete stranger rang the doorbell last night to ask me who had done that work because she thought it looked so good. She had walked by on the path and had seen it.. She obviously lives in the neighborhood, but I had never seen her before! I gave her your name and number and I hope she calls you! I just ordered two hydrangeas and three cranberry-colored dianthus to go in front of the tree. I’ll send you more pictures once those are in!

Mark B., Ames, Iowa

Dave and the squad were outstanding! Dave and squad's work ethic and character left us more than satisfied. Their work has left us feeling positive because they absolutely stayed true to their mission of providing an excellent experience for us! I would and will recommend A+ Skidloader and Dave's work to anyone who might need it! Thanks again, Dave!
Alicia, Ames, Iowa

Thanks for all your help with this project. I was lost on what to do. Your knowledge and work quality were excellent.
I'll definitely pass you name along to anyone U know that is asking about drainage work.
Fantastic service, excellent quality at a fair price. Pleasure to do business with you.

Paul S., Ames

So glad I called you for the dirt work and egress work. We were prepared this time.

Kevin T., Ames

 We were out of town a couple weeks ago when we got that big rain. When we got home, it was so nice to be able to go downstairs to our basement to see a dry basement and window.

Thanks you for helping us out and doing what you do.

Kasie, Des Moines

You're probably getting a lot of calls from people with water issues from all the storms, so I just wanted to write and say thanks again for the job you did for us back in 2014. I was a bit worried when we had this last storm, and even with all the rain and our gutters getting overwhelmed for a bit, we had only a very small amount of seepage in the unfinished part of the basement. I never heard the sump pump run at all.

You guys did a fantastic job. We're moving to a new place soon, and if we need any work done there, we'll be sure to call you.

Michael Ellis


"I wanted to take a minute to tell you how happy I am with the job you and the crew did. The main thing that motivated all of this for me was I knew it would be lower maintenance in the future. But, I didn’t anticipate how much better it would look, that such a nice bonus! I love the look of the rock over the mulch. Definitely peace of mind knowing the slope has been adjusted, and that should help to keep things dry for years to come.

I’ve dealt with a lot of different crews over the past couple years. We remodeled the kitchen and the master bath, as well as other bits and pieces, so I’ve worked with electricians, plumbers, carpenters, drywall teams, painters, tile layers, you name it! Your team was by far the most professional, the friendliest, and the one that clearly took the most pride in their work. The guys that work for you do you proud, they are great at what they do and very personable. It’s a testament to your leadership of them, that they approach the work and the customer that way. Thanks for all the great work you did!"

Mark B. , Ames, Iowa

“Thanks again. You and Jim did a really nice job. We really appreciate it”
Adam, Ames, Iowa

Jim and Michelle Cannon, Ames Iowa


“Dave, your guy’s work looks perfect. I'm am very happy with it and will have you do more work soon I hope.
Riley Larson, Roland Iowa”

Dave was meticulous, communicative and personable. He listened to our needs. The crew did a great job and conscientiously put things back in place and cleaned up. We were very happy with the results and the whole process!
Ann, Ames Iowa


I've been very pleased with all the work you have done here and it has been heartening to deal with a business that still takes pride in doing a job "right" instead of just "good enough".
Gary, Ames, Iowa

Dave - When it comes to customer service and expertise, you and your crew are the BEST!  You are absolutely wonderful to work with and I am always confident that you will arrive on time and a do a top notch job.  Thank you so much.  I will highly recommend you to my friends and family.
Marti Elston     Service Director, Windsor Oaks Retirement Community, Ames, Iowa


The work was perfect. We’re so pleased.  So: Huge thanks to you and your crew for a job well done. We’re so relieved that those old timbers are out of there and the replacements look so much better than we expected. Who knew that it was possible to make egress windows look so good??
Maureen Ogle  Ames, Iowa


Dave: I couldn’t be more pleased with the project---it looks great!  You can be very proud of your son and his crew.  Thanks to all of you for the great work!  I can understand why you keep so busy; you do your job with integrity. Thanks again.
Sheryl Phipps, Story City, Iowa                          

Thanks, Dave, the wells look great.    
Denny Baumann, Story City, Iowa


Thank you Dave! You and your crew did a great job!    
Jeanie Bain, Clear Lake, Iowa


Dave, Thanks so much for the great work you and your folks did for us. From the estimate and ideas how to fix our problem, to the extras you handled effectively and graciously, to the completion of the job in a very timely way, you delivered on everything you promised and more! Not only did you do a terrific job and fix the problem, you stayed in touch with me daily to tell me the progress you were making and what the next steps were.  I can’t express my thanks enough. I have never experienced such terrific customer service. I have been telling your story to all of my friends and colleagues. You are amazing! Feel free to use my comments with advertising or potential customers. I’d be happy to be a reference.                                                      
Ginny Arthur, Ames, Iowa


Dave, went out to look at the job you did with my wife and we both think it looks great. Contact me next spring and we’ll talk about what to do next. 
Michael Ellis, Ames, Iowa



Dave- Thanks for all of your help, the friendly staff, and the fair price.

Dave- Thanks for taking the time to take care of our foundation. I’m sure you have bigger jobs but you took the time to work us in thanks!     
Mary Pearson, Boone, Iowa    

Dave- Thanks for your great work!!  We always think of you first because you have given us such wonderful service in the past.  


Ron Logston, Ames, Iowa    

Dave- Just a note to again say “Thank you” for the great job done in landscaping the front of my house, moving the rocks and especially the “special” things-fixing the sidewalk and my other blocks that needed straightening. My grass is growing well. I appreciate the way you work and care for your workers and I have praised your works to many. May you feel the blessing of God for your caring ways.


In appreciation,   Lorraine French, Clear Lake, Iowa

Thanks Dave and Jim—the sidewalk looks great!   
Perry Bradshaw, Des Moines, Iowa


Dave-I’d like to give you this recommendation-use it as you see fit—Todd     “I want to express my absolute satisfaction with A Plus Skidloader Services. During the rainstorms we received during the spring, we had water flowing into and flooding our basement through an egress window. We contacted Dave Pepper of A Plus Skidloader Services, who assessed our problem and provided us with an estimate and a plan. Dave and his superb employees redirected the flow of the water coming into our yard by re-grading the lawn and re-setting and resealing an improperly-installed window well. All of his work was completed in 2 days, and after several more storms later in the summer-including one three-day storm with over ten inches of rain—we still had a completely dry basement! I highly recommend Dave and his crew to anyone needing re-grading, reseeding/sodding, and window wells replaced!”                                  
Todd Hoffman, Ankeny, Iowa



Dave- Thanks for all of your help. The window well looks great! 
Kathy Schneider, Ames, Iowa


Dave- Thank you for the good work! If you ever need a reference, give them my name and  number.
Dan Crim, Stratford, Iowa

Dave- I was pleased with the quality of the work and very impressed with the timeliness of the job, both in how quickly you fit us into your schedule and how quickly the job was completed. Everything was handled professionally and all of the complications were dealt with in a timely, friendly, and competent manner. I couldn’t be happier with the work done by A+. I will be sure to recommend you to my friends! Thanks again,  
Ali Tracey, Ames, Iowa

Dave, it was nice meeting you during the work that you performed at our house. It is nice to know that there are still companies such as yours that cares about the customer and you insured that the customer was satisfied with the job. Your crew was a pleasure to work with and they were all very professional.   
Paul and JoAnn Sandoval, Ames, Iowa

Dave: Thank you for the good work. It was nice having you and your crew working on the front area this summer. If ever anyone wants to see an example of your good work, just send them over.                        
Al Ravenscroft, Ames, Iowa

Hi Dave, It was good working with you and the two guys. You are lucky to have such good workers trying to please us old people! They did a great job! Thanks again,.
Chuck and Ruby Matheason, Story City, Iowa

Pat and Sue Lawler, Ames, Iowa

Hi Dave, I was happy to see that the drainage you did worked perfectly with all of the rain we got in June. The garage stayed nice and dry! It was a big relief. Wendie Schneider, Nevada, Iowa
