80 Years of Schuling Hitch

About Us

Schuling Hitch Company since 1939

Schuling Hitch Company was established in 1939 in downtown Des Moines. Today, we have two locations in Central Iowa: one on Second Avenue in Des Moines, and one on Alexander Avenue in Ames. We install trailer hitches, assisting our customers’ boating, camping, biking, and towing adventures.

Our services have expanded along with our business. In addition to installing trailer hitches, we set up vehicles to be towed behind motorhomes, carry a large inventory of bike racks and cargo management accessories, and install Fisher snow plows and snow and ice control equipment. The Ames location (started in 1993) also specializes in fifth wheel and gooseneck installations.
Our family is committed to offering quality products, competitive prices, and exceptional service.

I couldn't be happier with my experience at Schuling. Purchased both a hitch and bike rack for my vehicle, and the... entire process was easy and stress-free. For both my hitch installation and bike rack purchase, I showed up with no notice and no appointment, and Schuling attended to me quickly and had me out of there within a half hour. The technician who installed my bike rack walked me through how every aspect of it works, and gave me his personal recommendations on how to operate it. Schuling is a fantastic company that operates with prices that are more than fair, and quick and attentive service.read more

They installed a hitch on our Acura cheaper than I could buy it online and then gave me a great deal on a Kuat bike... carrier. You can't go wrong with them.read more

Their bay was very clean and organized like they take pride in what they do, which gave me the impression that I chose... the right place when I first arrived. Had them install a brake controller en route to pick up a new trailer. The service was friendly and installation was fast and clean. The brake controller fit perfectly and they walked through calibrating it, considerations based on towing conditions, etc. Definitely recommend them for any hitch, hauling, or accessory needs!read more
