Stress Removed - Excellent Moving Experience
From start to finish Rose Moving handled it all.  We recently moved back to Michigan from Tennessee.  What could have been a very stressful move could not have gone smoother.  Rose Moving picked up our belongings the day before we closed on our TN home and delivered to our new Michigan home right after we closed.  Jim and Beverly from the office were both very professional.  Often times they contacted us with the answer before we knew we had a question.  All of our belongings arrived in perfect shape.  The movers at both homes were very professional and made sure they placed the furniture exactly where you wanted it.  Thanks Rose - you made it easy!

I highly recommend them for your move.
I moved household items with Rose Moving and storage twice before.  They moved items from Michigan to Phoenix and then back again 5 years later.  There was not even a hint of any "event".  No breakage, no lost items, no nothing.  A  perfectly uneventful move, just the way they should be.

In August, 2010 I contacted Rose Moving (Jim Stafford) regarding a move from Auburn Hills, Michigan to Las Vegas, Nevada.  You see, I used a competitor to move me out of my home in Rochester, MI into storage.  I was not happy with Corrigan as they quoted 17,000lbs and ended up 23,000lbs & they broke a chandelier and then denied the repair claim.

I contacted Jim and he was incredibly informative and low key with me.  He explained all I needed to know in order to feel comfortable about moving my goods out of a competitors storage facility.  He took the time to follow up with me numerous times over the 7 months of being in storage and to "teach" me some of the ins and outs of moving and storage.

Come time to actually do the move, Jim provided me a firm quote to move me to LV that was less expensive, would assign a "master mover" to my move, and would personally oversee the unpack and load of my belongings out of a competitors storage.  Really, who could do more?  Have you ever heard of a mover providing a FIRM, not to exceed quote?

At the last moment, due to our inability to return to Michigan to supervise the unload from storage and load to Allied truck (a requirement of Corrigan Moving), we were unable to use Jim and Rose Moving.

I  highly recommend them for your move.   It was a mistake for me to get involved with a moving company other than Jim Stafford and Rose Moving and Storage.

Almont (Get Moving Cost for Almont, MI) is a village in Lapeer County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 2,674 at the 2010 census. The village is located within Almont (Almont, Michigan Relocation Companies).

History

Almont (Get Movers Estimate for Almont, MI) was first settled in 1828 by James Deneen. It received a post office in 1835 named Bristol, for Oliver Bristol, the second permanent settler. The village was platted as Newburg in 1836, and renamed Almont (Get Movers Estimate for Almont, MI) in 1846. Almont (Get Move Estimate for Almont, MI) incorporated as a village in 1855.

The naming of Almont (Get Movers Estimate for Almont, MI)

James Thompson, who donated the town clock that is located in the steeple of the First Congregational Church, is credited with proposing the name "Almont (Get Movers Prices for Almont, MI)" in 1846 to honor the Mexican general, Juan Almont (Get Moves Estimate for Almont, MI)e." This interpretation of the naming of the town is mentioned in a newspaper story, and later recorded in Hildamae Bowman's book on the history of Almont (Get Relocation Prices for Almont, MI) (Almont (Get Relocation Quote for Almont, MI),The Tale of Then and Now, 1985).

In 2000, John Doppke, a member of the Almont (Get Movers Prices for Almont, MI) Historical Society, wrote "The myth of Almont (Get Moving Cost for Almont, MI) being named after a Mexican General is widespread and often quoted as fact, but there is no basis for it. It would have been treasonous to name a town after an obscure Mexican General so near the time of the Mexican War. (Almont (Get Relocation Prices for Almont, MI) sent several men to fight in that war.) The area was known for prominent Indian burial mounds and was most likely given the name for that reason. The name Almont (Get Relocation Estimate for Almont, MI) is still known in Ayrshire (Scotland) and in fact there is an Almont (Get Movers Quote for Almont, MI) hotel there (in the town of Ayr). It refers to an old earthworks mound in the area. Unfortunately Hildamae Bowman published the Mexican story in her book and implied it had something to do with the donation for the town clock. In fact, the renaming of the town and the money left to purchase the clock happened many years apart."

However an Almont (Get Movers Estimate for Almont, MI) civic leader such as Mr. Thompson could be responsible for both noncontemporaneous local events. Combat operations begun in the spring of 1846 in the Mexican-American War were highly controversial in the U.S., with the Whig Party, anti-imperialists and anti-slavery elements strongly opposed, and the principled diplomacy of General Almont (Get Moves Quote for Almont, MI)e was widely admired throughout the New World.

The word "Almont (Get Move Cost for Almont, MI)" is originally of Scottish derivation, referring to "auld mound", early burial hills that were landmarks in the Ayrshire region of Scotland. Almont (Get Moves Prices for Almont, MI) was the heart of a pioneering Scottish Settlement that formed in the 1830s (roughly 1830 to 1870). About 200 Scottish families left Ayrshire, Scotland and came to live in southeastern Michigan. There are many old mounts in Ayrshire where these families originated. In the nearby township of Bruce, there is a very prominent Indian mound that was so obvious Scottish pioneers used it as a landmark. It is not a far stretch of the imagination to suggest that a mound in the Almont (Get Moves Cost for Almont, MI) region led the pioneers to call the area "auld mound", or Almont (Get Move Estimate for Almont, MI).

In the book "Aryshire, Discovering a County", this sentence appears on page 350: "Just west of the bridge across the Stinchar (river) is the farm of Almont (Get Movers Prices for Almont, MI), the name probably deriving from "Auld Mound", being descriptive of the motte hill that lies immediately to the north east of the farm." This quote refers to the area near the town of Colmonell in Ayrshire, Scotland. In Colmonell, a reference on Rootsweb refers to "... a blacksmith at Almont (Get Relocation Estimate for Almont, MI)"; and "John Snell was born about 1629 in what is now Almont (Get Move Quote for Almont, MI) Farm at Pinwherry, a hamlet in the Ayrshire parish of Colmonell".

No historical documents provide a definitive derivation for the name Almont (Get Movers Estimate for Almont, MI). Besides the above two theories (named for General Almont (Get Moves Quote for Almont, MI)e, or referring to "auld mound"), other associations could have contributed.

Geographically, in Scotland the word "Almont (Get Moves Prices for Almont, MI)" was used interchangeably with the word "Almond". On a Scottish map, for example, one finds "Glen Almont (Get Movers Quote for Almont, MI)" followed by the parenthetical (Glen Almond).

There is also a Scottish surname "Almont (Get Moves Estimate for Almont, MI)" with a family crest and coat of arms. The surname Calmont (also Almont (Get Moving Estimate for Almont, MI)) is of French origin. It became Macalmont in Scotland, which is really "Mac Almont (Get Movers Prices for Almont, MI)", the same as in Mac Donald, or Mac Dougal, etc.

Other towns are named Almond in the United States and in Canada. Perhaps the most relevant of these is a Canadian Scottish community in Ontario, Canada. The Ontario county called Lanark (after the Scottish town of Lanark in southern Scotland) was settled by Scottish immigrants prior to the time when the Lapeer Scottish settlement began to develop in Michigan. Lanark County has a township called "Almonte". Some of the pioneers who settled Lapeer (Lapeer, MI Moving Companies), Michigan may have come by way of Lanark County, Ontario. The name could therefore have migrated from Ontario to Michigan, although the town of Almonte, Ontario was named for the Mexican General Juan Almonte in 1855. Thus it is more likely that the character of General Almonte led to his memorialization in both communities. In English-speaking Canada, the town of Almonte is pronounced "AL-mont" as opposed to the original Spanish pronunciation of "al-MON-tay", this guides the historian to view the 1846 spelling of the Michigan town of Almont and its pronunciations of "AL-mont" and "ALL-mont" as direct Americanizations of the Spanish surname Almonte.
