"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.

DeWitt is the name of a city and a township in Clinton (Clinton, Michigan Moving Companies) in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population of the city was 4,507 at the 2010 census.

The city is located north of Interstate 69, and west of US Highway 127, just north of Lansing (Lansing, Michigan Moving Companies).


DeWitt was named after DeWitt Clinton, Governor of New York during the 1830s. It was first settled by Captain David Scott, who moved there from Ann Arbor (Ann Arbor, Michigan Moving Company) in 1833, and platted the land. The State Legislature formally created DeWitt Township on March 23, 1836. The first township meeting was held at the house of Captain Scott on April 8, 1836. A gentleman by the name of Welcome J. Partelo was named the township’s first Supervisor at that meeting.

It did not take long for the State to divide DeWitt Township into the many townships that we recognize today. In 1837, the township was split in half by a North/South line with the western half becoming Watertown (Watertown, MI Relocation Company). Two years later, the township was again split in half by an East/West line with the northern half becoming Bingham Township. One day later, the Governor approved an act, which split the remaining township area in half by a North/South line with the eastern half becoming Ossowa Township (renamed Bath Township in 1843). The final split of the township came in 1841 with the northern half of the remaining land becoming Olive Township. In four years, DeWitt Township went from encompassing the entire county to its current boundary.

The county seat for Clinton (Clinton, MI Moving Company) was also located in DeWitt Township from the inception of the County. The county seat remained in DeWitt Township until December 1857 when it was moved to Plumstead Hall, in the village of St. Johns, until a new courthouse could be built.

In the early 1900s, the Lansing (Lansing, MI Relocation Companies), St. Johns and St. Louis Railway opened the community to a new era of prosperity. It was not until 1929 when the town was incorporated as a village, and then was no longer under the full jurisdiction of the township.

The area that is now the city was first incorporated as a village in 1929.

On October 21, 1930 a great fire swept though the downtown business district, destroying eight historic and business buildings. This included the destruction of the Clinton House/Hotel, which was a regionally famous establishment. The fire devastated the community, stagnating business growth once again. However, residential development did not slow, and thus DeWitt began its evolvement into the bedroom community that it is today.

The Village of DeWitt was incorporated into a city in 1965.

The DeWitt area was ranked as the 75th best place to live in the United States by CNN Money in 2005.

On September 13, 2011 a ribbon cutting ceremony was held at 110 South Bridge Street, unveiling the city's first electrical vehicle charging station.

The DeWitt area is the home of gymnast Jordyn Wieber, who was part of the gold medal winning women's gymnastics team at the 2012 London Summer Olympics.


DeWitt is on the Looking Glass River, a tributary of the Grand River. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 2.99 square miles (7.74 km2), of which, 2.86 square miles (7.41 km2) is land and 0.13 square miles (0.34 km2) is water.


DeWitt has an outstanding legacy in regards to education. The city is home to the following schools, which are divided among grade levels:

Fuerstenau Early Childhood Center (Pre-K and K) Schavey Road Elementary School (1st and 2nd Grade) Scott Elementary School (3rd and 4th Grade) Herbison Woods School (5th and 6th Grade) DeWitt Junior High School (7th and 8th Grade) DeWitt High School (9th-12th Grade)
