We have been in business since the February of 1985. Originally Bill's Electronic Systems (BES - Wiring, Alarm Systems, Industrial Controls), and slowly migrated into BES Services (Pond and General Excavation Services), with a website titled BES Ponds which finally evolved to IowaPonds.com© and now IowaGenerators.com© a division of BEST Services LLC.
In 2006 after a terrible ice storm we picked up the Generac Sales and Service Dealership for the Cedar Valley, and founded iowagenerators.com©
In 2007 we added inbound toll free lines, and now accept most major credit cards. We have expanded our inventory and supplier base to meet all your needs.
We also began operation of the Traer Fitness Center promoting good health to the community of Traer, Iowa (my home town), and changed from a sole proprietorship to a Limited Liability Corporation titled BEST Services LLC to accommodate our "growing pains".
In 2008 with a goal to begin installing generators, we achieved our master electricians and electrical contractors license with the State of Iowa. We have four certified service technicians available to our customer base.
In early 2009 we sold the Traer Fitness Center to allow us to better focus on our core businesses.
In Late 2009 we made a business decision to no longer build or sell pond supplies while continuing to grow and focus on our core business of selling, installing and servicing residential and commercial generators.
In 2010 we entered into a relationship with a Generac Industrial dealer, allowing us to assist and work with the industrial customers on their needs as well. We started a prototype generator monitoring system that filled a gap for our customers’ needs.
In 2012 we began manufacturing GenMon™, a low cost generator monitoring device that will notify the customer and or dealer each time the generator runs, any time the generator has a self-test failure alarm, and an additional optional zone.In 2013 we became a Generac Power Pro Elite Dealership which is a based from exhibiting a level of professionalism as well as meeting stringent standards set by Generac.
In 2014 we became a Highest Level Generac Power Pro Premier Dealership. PowerPro is the highest level of distinction available to members of Generac’s dealer network and open only to those that meet the most rigorous set of sales and customer service criteria. Like BEST Services LLC, PowerPro dealers consistently provide outstanding customer service, maintain local product and parts inventory and receive high reviews from their customer base. PowerPro dealers are committed to providing an outstanding sales and service experience.
In 2016 I sold the business and fully retired to fishing and traveling watching our family grow!
