About Bekins: From our history to our present
In 1990, Bekins Fire & Safety Services became a spin-off company from the ever-familiar and nationally recognized Bekins Moving & Storage Co. The owners felt that the level of local service that they were receiving for their own fire protection needs could be improved, so they decided to fill that need for other companies. Bekins Fire & Safety Services was founded on the principles of the original Bekins, which began in Sioux City, IA in the late 1800s. As one of Siouxland’s oldest companies, survival depended on quality service and custom satisfaction, and we still believe those principles are essential aspects of our business.
Bekins Fire purchased the first mobile fire extinguisher service unit in the area, which has now become the standard in the industry. In 2003, we moved to our current location at 3400 Hwy 75 N so we’d have more room for our inventory. Today, we are Siouxland’s largest fire equipment company, and we continue to grow on our original principles of quality and service.
We’re also keeping up with technology by installing the latest computer software that utilizes iPhones and iPads. The service and sales information is captured on the iPhone and can be invoiced directly to your email account.
