Perfect!
"Perfect" is the word to describe our experience with Rose Moving & Storage. Everything was perfect. The team of six movers, led by Mark McLean arrived right on time, and after sizing up the job went right to work. The team worked together, packing and loading everything in one day. Delivery was accomplished the following day. All of our possessions were delivered in the same condition they were in prior to Rose handling/moving them. Not only that, but these pros made sure to leave your old home and your new home in the same condition they found them in. It rained on day one and yet nobody from the Rose staff trailed any water or dirt into the old house.
Efficient, honest, friendly and professional. That is what you can expect from Rose Moving & Storage. And this description extends to not only the Rose employees who handle your property but the behind-the-scene staff as well. Mike Engelhardt, Beverly and the rest of the Rose staff all carried themselves in a most professional manner.
This isn't the first time we hired Rose Moving & Storage. Approx. eight years ago, Rose moved out daughter from Michigan to the east coast. Bottom line, they were perfect then, too.
I love Rose Moving, I really do. I have complete trust in this company and every one of their employees. Two moves spanning eight years, and nothing but perfection to report.

Execellent!  Can't go wrong with these guys
The movers were on time, and were very careful with our stuff.  Their professionalism really made my move to Texas  easier.  I would rate my experience as excellent.

My family had a wonderful experience with Rose Moving.
We compared 4 other companies and they were the easiest estimate to schedule and offered the best product.  All the employees, from the office personnel to the guy giving the estimate to the guys packing, loading and unloading us were professional, courteous and personable.  They took measures to protect everything including the stairwell at our new house.  NOTHING was damaged.  We have NO reservations about recommending Rose Moving to anyone we know.

Chester (Chester, MI Moving Companies) is a civil township of Ottawa (Ottawa, MI Moving Reviews) in the U.S. state of Michigan. As of the 2000 census, the township population was 2,315.

Communities

There are no incorporated municipalities within the township. There are a few unincorporated communities and homeowners associations:

  • Conklin (Get Moving Cost for Conklin, MI), in the southwest part of the township at 43°07′44″N 85°52′53″W / 43.12889°N 85.88139°W / 43.12889; -85.88139 (Conklin (Get Moving Prices for Conklin, MI), Michigan). It was a station on the Grand Rapids (Grand Rapids, Michigan Moving Companies) and Indiana Railroad, with its post office first opening in June 1887 and continues to service most of the township with ZIP code 49403.
  • Crockery Lake, a homeowners association on Crockery Lake near the center of the township.
  • Harrisburg, on the north branch of Crockery Creek in the northwest of the township at 43°11′31″N 85°52′26″W / 43.19194°N 85.87389°W / 43.19194; -85.87389 (Harrisburg, Michigan). It was a station on the Toledo, Saginaw and Muskegon (Muskegon, Michigan Movers) Railway, with a post office operating from December 1888 until February 1907.

On the eastern boundary with Sparta (Sparta, Michigan Relocation), Gooding was a station on the Toledo, Saginaw and Muskegon Railway in Kent County. A post office was established in November 1888 and named after storekeeper/postmaster Richard J. Gooding. In June 1918, the post office was transferred to a site on the Ottawa County side and remained in operation until January 1923. The most noticeable remnant of Gooding is in the name give to Gooding Street, which runs east-west across the township, passing just south of Crockery Lake. The street continues as 13 Mile Road in Kent County and as Ellis Road in Muskegon (Muskegon, Michigan Moving Company).

About one mile (1.6 km) south of Gooding, is the site of the former village of Lisbon. This was first settled by John Pintler from New York in 1846. A post office was established in Ottawa County in 1848 with the name "Pintler's Corners". The name was changed in 1859 to Lisbon. In March 1869, a village was incorporated, extending one half mile in each direction from the northwest corner of section 30 of Sparta Township (thus including a quarter section of section 19 to the north in Sparta Township as well as quarter sections of sections 24 and 25 in Chester (Chester, Michigan Movers). However, railroad lines bypassed the village and it did not prosper, eventually disincorporating.

The township protrudes to the north of the rest of Ottawa County, and is bounded on the west and north by Muskegon (Muskegon, Michigan Relocation Company) and on the east by Kent County. Polkton Township lies to the southwest and Wright Township to the south.

No major roads pass through the township, although Interstate 96 passes just to the south. The city of Coopersville is just a few miles to the southwest. Grand Haven is about 20 miles (32 km) to the west, while Grand Rapids (Grand Rapids, MI Relocation Company) is about 15 miles (24 km) to the southeast.

Geography

The northern part of the township is drained by the north branch of Crockery Creek, a tributary of the Grand River that flows mostly westward in the township. The southern portion is drained by branches of Rio Grande Creek, which flow mostly westward before joining Crockery Creek just south of Ravenna. A small area in the southwest corner is drained by Beaver Creek, which flows mostly south into Deer Creek just about a mile before Deer Creek enters the Grand River in Polkton Township. A very small area in the southeast of the township is drained by Nash Creek, which flows east to the Rogue River. Crockery Lake, on the Crockery Creek near the center of the township, is the only sizeable body of water in the township. The highest point in Conklin (Get Move Estimate for Conklin, MI) is appx. 1-mile (1.6 km) from Crockery Lake by Gooding St. and 24th Avenue.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the township has a total area of 35.9 square miles (93 km2), of which, 35.7 square miles (92 km2) of it is land and 0.2 square miles (0.52 km2) of it (0.47%) is water.

Grose Park is a 40-acre (160,000 m2) county park overlooking the north side of Crockery Lake and provides a variety of recreational opportunities including swimming, fishing, sand volleyball and picnicking. There is about one mile (1.6 km) of hiking trails along Lange Creek. Major improvements were made in 2000 to Grose Park as part of a $660,000 renovation with about 60% of the funding coming from the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund.
