Professional and courteous!
We have used Rose Moving twice now. Once to move our entire home across country, and then a second time to move the rest of our items from storage. Both experiences were great. Jim was friendly and helpful in quoting the jobs and always answered any questions promptly. The movers handling the jobs were all professional and courteous and they took great care with all of our property. I would definitely recommend Rose Moving!

Fantastic Move
I was in the military for 21 years and worked for 20 years after, moving 6 times. By far the best move was done recently for us by Rose from Michigan and Tucson,AZ. From the time the Rose sales rep,Mike, arrived and planned the moves, we knew we were in for great service. We also had two small loads to our kids in Canada and Virginia. All three packing and pick ups were on time and done to perfection. The main load to AZ packing was really professional, the packers courteous,friendly,and meticulous with expert packing skills. Upon arrival in AZ(we had a door to door move) the unloaded the truck in record time,loaded the large large cartons we unpacked immediately,and placed furniture in the places we wanted. I have been unpacking for a week and everything came through in great condition,no breakage. We could NOT have asked for better. And thru the entire process the move coordinator at Rose,Beverly,did a superb job of keeping us informed and checking to see that all was well. CHOSE ROSE MOVING,no one can do better.

History

Adrian was founded on June 18, 1826 by Addison Comstock, promoter of the Erie and Kalamazoo (Kalamazoo, MI Relocation Companies) Railroad, and was originally named Logan. In 1828 Addison's wife renamed the village to Adrian after the Roman Emperor Hadrian.

The only remaining piece of the Bank of Pennsylvania— one of the stone pillars — was moved to Adrian (Get Movers Prices for Adrian, MI), Michigan and erected as the Civil War Memorial in commemoration of those in Adrian (Get Moving Quote for Adrian, MI) who died in the American Civil War.

The Erie & Kalamazoo (Kalamazoo, Michigan Relocation Company) Rail Road Bank was chartered by the Territory of Michigan and opened in the village of Adrian in 1835.

In the late 19th century through early 20th century Adrian (Get Relocation Cost for Adrian, MI) was known as the "fence capital of the world," when J. Wallace Page invented the first successful wire fence. Throughout this period, Adrian (Get Relocation Prices for Adrian, MI) was one of the first fencing manufacturers in the world and its fences were shipped as far as New York, Berlin, Asia, and Africa. The company sponsored the highly successful Page Fence Giants black baseball team.

One of the first motor vehicles, the Lion automobile, was created in Adrian (Get Move Cost for Adrian, MI). Between 1900 and 1912, Adrian (Get Relocation Cost for Adrian, MI) was shaping up to be one of the motor capitals of the world, with three car models manufactured in Adrian (Get Move Prices for Adrian, MI) during those 12 years. But due to some unfortunate turn of events, it never came to be.

The first two were the Murry Motor Car and Lenawee Car: both made by the Church Manufacturing Company. Although the cars were a hit at the 1910 Chicago Automobile show and they sold hundreds of cars, due to bad financial decisions the Church Manufacturing Company ran out of money and had to close.

The third car manufactured in Adrian (Get Movers Prices for Adrian, MI) was the Lion made by the Lion Motor Car Company.
