#movemadeeasy   Summed up in a tweet.  From beginning to end -excellent
From the moment we called and talked to Rose Moving they were professional and obviously knew what would be needed to made this "winter" move easier on us.  Communication up to and after the move was excellent.  The movers themselves knew how to make sure nothing was broken and arrived exactly on schedule.  They moved our baby grand piano and did an unbelievable job!  We felt like we had made new friends that cared about our move as much as we did by the time it ended.  Thanks for everything!

I would like to take some time to thank you for my move from Temperance Michigan to Bonita Springs Florida. Starting with Mike Engelhardt who sold the job, to Beverly Thomason, who kind of guided us through everything. Then tree was the 2 crews who loaded and unloaded the truck. And last but not least was Robert Meacham who watched over everything and made it happen. I would like to thank each and every one of them, for their professional approach and their pleasent and polite manner in which they went about the businsess of moving my wife and I . Further more I hope that who ever is in charge would pass a BIG thank you to all of those mentioned above. Thank you, Manuel & Brenda Chambers
