Stress Removed - Excellent Moving Experience
From start to finish Rose Moving handled it all.  We recently moved back to Michigan from Tennessee.  What could have been a very stressful move could not have gone smoother.  Rose Moving picked up our belongings the day before we closed on our TN home and delivered to our new Michigan home right after we closed.  Jim and Beverly from the office were both very professional.  Often times they contacted us with the answer before we knew we had a question.  All of our belongings arrived in perfect shape.  The movers at both homes were very professional and made sure they placed the furniture exactly where you wanted it.  Thanks Rose - you made it easy!

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.

History

Welcome sign

Elk Rapids (Get Movers Estimate for Elk Rapids, MI) began as a small port on the Grand Traverse Bay in the 1840s. It was platted in 1852 with the name of Stevens. Because of its location, the town quickly became a major resort center, which highly contributed to its growth during the period. In the 1870s, the Elk Rapids Iron Works began on the east side of the town. Within 30 years of the Iron Work's founding, Elk Rapids had become the county seat of Antrim (Antrim, MI Relocation Companies) (which Bellaire took from Elk Rapids in 1880), plus the town boasted a cement plant, a chemical plant, a depot on the Chicago and West Michigan Railroad, and a population of nearly 2000. It was incorporated as a village in 1900. Through the 1890s-1910's, the town was a thriving commercial center with many shops and hotels lining River Street (Elk Rapids's main street). This "heyday" did not last long though, the Iron Works and all the other industrial operations had ceased by 1916, leaving the town economically depressed. Elk Rapids remained this way until the 1950s, when the town experienced a boom in tourism due to its location on the then newly constructed US 31.
