My move couldn't have gone smoother.
You want your stuff moved quickly, efficiently and safely?  Better contact Allied.  They gave me all the boxes, paper and wardrobes I needed to move 1400 miles from Michigan to Florida. Movers (Brian and Glenn) showed up on time and did all the work.  They gave me a date for delivery and I drove to my new location.  Everything arrived on the day promised and they loaded it all into a storage unit so I just pick up a few boxes a day. They also set up the king size bed and moved all the furniture to the exact location I wanted. Erica and Beverly always kept me informed as to my move status. Movers were a crew of two.  Never saw anybody work that hard on both ends of the move. Thought about using those giant pods until I found out the cost AND that I would have to load and unload it. Couldn't be happier with the move and I won't miss the snow.

#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!

It is very important to us that we let you know how satisfied we were with our move from Monroe, Michigan to Las Vegas, Nevada.  Your employee, Jessie, handled the moving from pick-up to delivery flawlessly!  He was a gentleman the entire time.  From the loading thru the unloading, he could not have been more professional.  He worked without breaks and did a couple of extra things for us that was above and beyond our expectations!  We would recommend Rose Moving and Storage to anyone moving any distance from locally to nationally!  Thanks for everything!

Berrien (Get Move Cost for Berrien, MI) is a county located in the extreme southwest of the U.S. state of Michigan. It is included in the Niles-Benton Harbor (Benton Harbor, MI Mover Reviews), Michigan Metropolitan Statistical Area. As of the 2010 census, the population was 156,813. The county seat is St. Joseph.


As one of the Cabinet counties, Berrien (Get Move Quote for Berrien, MI) was named for John M. Berrien of Georgia, U.S. Attorney General under U.S. President Andrew Jackson (1829–1831).

After creation of the Michigan Territory in 1805, the territory now comprising Berrien (Get Move Cost for Berrien, MI) was part of Wayne County, Michigan. About 1780, William Burnett came from New Jersey and established a trading post at the mouth of the St. Joseph River (present-day site of St. Joseph), and traded with indigenous peoples and French Canadians who lived in the area at that time. About the same time, Joseph Bertrand also established a trading post on the river, in a location now part of Niles Charter Township. In December 1822, missionary Isaac McCoy moved his family and 18 Indian students from Indiana to a site on the St. Joseph River near the present-day city of Niles to open a mission to the Potawatomi Indians. The Carey Mission, as he named it, was 100 miles from the nearest White settlement. In 1827 St. Joseph Township was organized as part of Wayne County. The township included all lands acquired from the Native Americans by the Treaty of Chicago of 1821.

Berrien (Get Moving Cost for Berrien, MI)'s boundaries were set off by an act of the legislature of the Michigan Territory on October 29, 1829, with its present limits, but it was initially attached as Niles Township to Cass County for administrative purposes. In 1831 Berrien (Get Relocation Prices for Berrien, MI) was detached from Cass County.

The county was initially divided into three townships: Berrien (Berrien, MI Moving Companies), consisting of present-day townships of Berrien, Oronoko, and Lake plus a two-mile strip north of that territory; St. Joseph Township, consisting of everything north of Berrien (Berrien, MI Relocation Company); and Niles Township, consisting of everything south of Berrien (Berrien, MI Relocation Company).


The county government operates the jail, maintains rural roads, operates the major local courts, keeps files of deeds and mortgages, maintains vital records, administers public health regulations, and participates with the state in the provision of welfare and other social services. The county board of commissioners controls the budget but has only limited authority to make laws or ordinances. In Michigan, most local government functions — police and fire, building and zoning, tax assessment, street maintenance, etc. — are the responsibility of individual cities and townships.

Berrien (Get Movers Prices for Berrien, MI) elected officials

  • Prosecuting Attorney: Arthur Cotter
  • Sheriff: L. Paul Bailey
  • County Clerk: Sharon Tyler
  • County Treasurer: Bret E. Witkowski
  • Register of Deeds: Lori D. Jarvis
  • Drain Commissioner: Roger Zilke
  • County Surveyor: John G. Kamer

(information as of June 2013)


The county borders the state of Indiana to the South and includes a portion of Lake Michigan to the West. Van Buren (Van Buren, MI Moving Reviews) is to the north and northeast. Cass County is to the east.

According to the 2000 census, the county has a total area of 1,581.38 square miles (4,095.8 km2), of which 571.00 square miles (1,478.9 km2) (or 36.11%) is land and 1,010.39 square miles (2,616.9 km2) (or 63.89%) is water.

The St. Joseph River is a major geographical feature, flowing mostly north and west through the county from Niles to its mouth on Lake Michigan at St. Joseph. The southwest of the county is drained by the Galien River and its tributaries. Paw Paw Lake (Paw Paw Lake, Michigan Relocation Company) is in the north of the county, along with the Paw Paw River, which flows into the St. Joseph River just before it enters Lake Michigan. A tiny portion along the Indiana state line is drained by small tributaries of the Kankakee River, which ultimately flows into the Mississippi River. This is one of the few areas of Michigan drained by the Mississippi River, the other being an area of Michigan's Upper Peninsula near the Wisconsin border.
