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!

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.

Verified Review
My move with Rose moving was the best…
My move with Rose moving was the best move i have had. Having moved twice before with North American and Bekins, there was no comparison. My salesman, Jim Stafford was professional and very knowlagable. He came back to home twice to make sure we had an accurate quote. He was very patient with my long list of questions. They were not the cheapest mover by far but, I have learned the hard way, that you get what you pay for in this industry. Steve K(the driver) and his guys protected my home like it was their own. My furniture was wrapped before it left my house. Not a scratch on anything. To top it off Rose sent in a cleaning crew after the loading process. The office at Rose was great with any questions that I had. If I move from Chicago it will be with Rose Moving. They are true professionals. Thank again Rose, I will refer you to anyone I know moving!!!!!!

Chester (Chester, MI Moving Reviews) is a civil township of Ottawa (Ottawa, MI Moving Company) 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 Moves 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 Move Prices for Conklin, MI), Michigan). It was a station on the Grand Rapids (Grand Rapids, MI Movers) 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 Relocation Companies) Railway, with a post office operating from December 1888 until February 1907.

On the eastern boundary with Sparta (Sparta, MI Movers), 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 Mover Reviews).

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 Mover Reviews). 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, MI Moving) 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 Companies) 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 Moving Cost 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.
