Fantastic Move
I was in the military for 21 years and worked for 20 years after, moving 6 times. By far the best move was done recently for us by Rose from Michigan and Tucson,AZ. From the time the Rose sales rep,Mike, arrived and planned the moves, we knew we were in for great service. We also had two small loads to our kids in Canada and Virginia. All three packing and pick ups were on time and done to perfection. The main load to AZ packing was really professional, the packers courteous,friendly,and meticulous with expert packing skills. Upon arrival in AZ(we had a door to door move) the unloaded the truck in record time,loaded the large large cartons we unpacked immediately,and placed furniture in the places we wanted. I have been unpacking for a week and everything came through in great condition,no breakage. We could NOT have asked for better. And thru the entire process the move coordinator at Rose,Beverly,did a superb job of keeping us informed and checking to see that all was well. CHOSE ROSE MOVING,no one can do better.

You will NOT be disappointed!
I recently worked with Rose Moving and Storage via the Allied Van Lines network.  Jim Stafford was my estimator for a move from MI to TX and he was thorough courteous and professional.  Even though I chose the price guarantee, his estimate was very close to actual and I had no hidden fees or charges throughout the move. Judy, my move coordinator was also very helpful and kept the lines of communication constantly open for any questions I had.

The real gem in the whole transaction, however, was the driver.  Tom moved my entire house from MI to TX and he was INCREDIBLE!  He was very friendly, efficient and punctual, showing up EARLY for both the loading and unloading.  I had over 100 boxes and a lot of very large/heavy furniture that had to make the move to an apartment AND storage unit in TX.  Not only was he able to get to TX and deliver things earlier than originally estimated (YAY!) but EVERYTHING survived the move with ZERO damage.  If you've ever moved across the country, you should know how rare this is.  Tom called me multiple times to provide updates on his progress and made sure I was comfortable with the move every step of the way.  I would highly recommend Rose to anyone who is looking to move a long distance.  Request Tom as your driver if he is available -- you will not be disappointed!

Dearborn (Get Moves Cost for Dearborn, MI) is a city in the State of Michigan. It is located in the Detroit metropolitan area and in Wayne (Wayne, Michigan Moving Company). Dearborn is the eighth largest city in the State of Michigan. As of the 2010 census, it had a population of 98,153. First settled in the late 18th century by French farmers in a series of ribbon farms along the Rouge River and the Sauk Trail, the community grew with the establishment of the Detroit Arsenal on the Chicago Road linking Detroit and Chicago. It later grew into a manufacturing hub for the automotive industry.

The city was the home of Henry Ford and is the world headquarters of the Ford Motor Company. It has a campus of the University of Michigan as well as Henry Ford Community College. Dearborn (Get Moves Cost for Dearborn, MI) has The Henry Ford, America's largest indoor-outdoor museum complex and Metro Detroit's leading tourist attraction.

The ethnic backgrounds of Dearborn (Get Move Cost for Dearborn, MI) residents are primarily European or Middle-Eastern. German, Polish, Irish and Italian are the primary European ethnicities while African American and Hispanic groups have not been significant historically. Middle-Eastern ancestries make up the largest ethnic grouping with Lebanese, Yemeni, Iraqi, Syrian and Palestinian groups present.

History

The area had been inhabited for thousands of years by varying indigenous peoples. Historical tribes belonged mostly to the Algonquian-language family, although the Huron were Iroquoian speaking.

The Dearborn (Get Moving Estimate for Dearborn, MI) area was settled by Europeans in 1786, after the American Revolutionary War. The village of Dearborn (Get Relocation Prices for Dearborn, MI)ville was established in 1836, named after patriot Henry Dearborn (Get Moving Quote for Dearborn, MI), a General in the American Revolution and Secretary of War under President Thomas Jefferson. The town of Dearborn (Get Move Prices for Dearborn, MI) was incorporated in 1893, changing to a city in 1927. Its current borders trace back to a 1928 consolidation vote that established its present-day borders by merging Dearborn (Get Moving Cost for Dearborn, MI) and neighboring Fordson (previously known as Springwells), which feared being absorbed into Detroit.

The area between the two towns was, and still remains in part, undeveloped. Once farm land, this was bought by Henry Ford for his estate, Fair Lane, and the Ford Motor Company World Headquarters. Later developments in this corridor were the Ford airport (later converted to the Dearborn (Get Moving Cost for Dearborn, MI) Proving Grounds), other Ford administrative and development facilities, The Henry Ford (the region's leading tourist attraction containing a reconstructed historic village and museum), the Henry Ford Centennial Library, the super-regional shopping mall Fairlane Town Center, and the Dearborn (Get Movers Cost for Dearborn, MI) Civic Center. It is planted with sunflowers and often with Henry Ford's favorite soybeans. The crops are never harvested.

The Arab American National Museum (AANM) opened in Dearborn (Get Move Estimate for Dearborn, MI) in 2005, the first museum in the world devoted to Arab-American history and culture. Most of the Arab-Americans in Dearborn (Get Move Estimate for Dearborn, MI) and the Detroit area are ethnic Lebanese, who immigrated in the early twentieth century to work in the auto industry, like many immigrants to the area. They have been joined by more recent Arab immigrants from other nations.

Geography

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 24.5 square miles (63 km2), of which, 24.4 square miles (63 km2) of it is land and 0.1 square miles (0.26 km2) of it (0.37%) is water. The Rouge River runs through the city with an artificial waterfall/low head dam on the Henry Ford estate to power his powerhouse.

The island is privately owned, and public access to the island is prohibited. The island is part of the city of Dearborn, which itself has no coast along the Detroit River.

Free speech controversy

Four members of the Christian group "Acts 17 Apologetics" were arrested and prosecuted for breach of the peace in 2010 because they were walking around the annual Arab-American Festival talking to people at the festival about Christianity. All the charges, except one of failure to obey a police order, were thrown out by a jury. During the festival, four other people from Apologetics were blocked from handing out Arabic-English copies of the Gospel of John on a public street. Police ordered them to stop filming the incident, to provide identification, and to move at least five blocks from the border of the fair.

A Tea Party Senatorial candidate in Nevada, Sharron Angle, suggested that Dearborn (Get Move Prices for Dearborn, MI) was contributing to a non-widespread "militant terrorist situation," and said that the city was enforcing Islamic law. Angle was sharply criticized by the Mayor Jack O'Reilly, who called her comments "shameful." "He said they were based on distorted Tea Party accounts of the arrest of members of an anti-Islam group at an Arab festival." Angle was defeated in the election by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

Preacher Terry Jones planned a protest in 2011 outside the Islamic Center of America. Local authorities required him either to post a $45,000 "peace bond" to cover Dearborn (Get Move Estimate for Dearborn, MI)'s cost if Jones was attacked by extremists or to go to trial. Jones contested that requirement, and the jury voted on April 22 to require the posting of a $1 "peace bond", but Jones and his co-pastor Wayne Sapp continued to refuse to pay. They were held briefly in jail, while claiming violation of First Amendment rights. That night Jones was released by the court. The ACLU had filed an amicus brief in support of Jones's protest plans.

A week later, on April 29, Jones led a rally at the Dearborn (Get Moving Cost for Dearborn, MI) City Hall, designated as a free speech zone. Riot police were called out to control counter protesters.

On November 11, 2011, Wayne (Wayne, Michigan Relocation) Circuit Court Judge Robert Ziolkowski vacated the “breach of peace” ruling against Terry Jones and Wayne Sapp on the grounds that they were denied due process.

Terry Jones led a rally at City Hall and then planned to speak at the annual Festival on June 18, 2011, but on his way there he was blocked by protesters, six of whom were arrested. Police said they did not have enough officers present to maintain safety. Christian missionaries accompanied Jones with their own signs of protest; they were alleged by festivalgoers and protesters to have yelled insults at Arabs, Muslims, Islam, and Catholics.

On April 7, 2012 Terry Jones led a protest in front of the Islamic Center of America, Dearborn (Get Moving Quote for Dearborn, MI), speaking about Islam and Free Speech. The mosque was placed on lock down. 30 police cars were there to block traffic and prevent a counter protest.
