Excellent
I called several moving companies to move my moms furniture from her condo in Allen Park over to Maple Heights Retirement Community in Allen Park. Rose is the preferred moving company for Maple Heights. They were a little more expensive than other companies but I felt more comfortable with Rose after talking with Jim. The guys arrived at the scheduled start time and completed the job in 3 hours. Both workers were outstanding. They went over the top to please us. I would highly recommend this company for any moving needs.

Efficient . Professional.
The two young gentleman were here most of the day in a very busy small office environment. They were polite and at times so quiet while working we forgot they were here.

It is very important to us that we let you know how satisfied we were with our move from Monroe, Michigan to Las Vegas, Nevada.  Your employee, Jessie, handled the moving from pick-up to delivery flawlessly!  He was a gentleman the entire time.  From the loading thru the unloading, he could not have been more professional.  He worked without breaks and did a couple of extra things for us that was above and beyond our expectations!  We would recommend Rose Moving and Storage to anyone moving any distance from locally to nationally!  Thanks for everything!
