Great Experience
We moved from Michigan to Colorado and the experience was nothing short of great! The crew who loaded our stuff to put into storage was extremely professional. The team lead even saw the stress in my face and put me at ease by saying, "Don't worry, this is easy! It'll be great!" That really helped! The crew who unloaded our stuff in Colorado was top notch as well. Very friendly and professional. Jim and Beverly were both very responsive and great to work with. I would definitely recommend Rose!

Highly recommend using Rose Moving and Storage.
The whole "pack and load"  aspect went smoothly.  Jim Stafford was great at estimating, courteous and quick.  The crew of 4 arrived on time and were very pleasant.  Foreman Mark communicated well, was professional and kept a fast pace.  I was amazed at their speed.  Each item was wrapped well and they would always ask if they had specific item questions.  Mark even let my 3 year old pretend to drive the "big truck", which he loved. This move out was quick and I would highly recommend this team.
