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.

Rose is the best moving company.
I hired Rose Moving & Storage (Allied Van Lines) for the second time for an out-of-state move. To keep costs down, I packed my own boxes, which they moved with great care. I also have antique furniture, some pieces of which require special handling. The movers listened to my concerns and went over the details of how they would package the antiques before proceeding. The team was courteous, friendly and unobtrusive. As a single woman, I felt very comfortable with them in my house for extended periods of time. Everything with the move was on-time and on-schedule, and the entire team, from the sales person to all of the people in the office, to the crew themselves, were highly professional. Also, there was absolutely no damage to my furniture or possessions.
