Professional and courteous!
We have used Rose Moving twice now. Once to move our entire home across country, and then a second time to move the rest of our items from storage. Both experiences were great. Jim was friendly and helpful in quoting the jobs and always answered any questions promptly. The movers handling the jobs were all professional and courteous and they took great care with all of our property. I would definitely recommend Rose Moving!

Very Good Movers!
The young fellows that came even put together a weightlifting thing, and it wasn’t really a part of their job, but they stayed and did it.  It was just wonderful, because it took them probably a half hour at least to do that.  They came to the house when they said they were going to be there.  They were careful with our furniture.  We did have a couple of broken mirrors, but it was the edges and that was the only thing, so it was very minimal and we can expect something like that.  Their price was very reasonable.

Grosse Pointe Farms (Get Movers Prices for Grosse Pointe Farms, MI) is a coastal suburban town bordering Detroit located in Wayne County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 9,479 at the 2010 census. It is bordered by Canada and Lake Saint Clair on the south and east, Grosse Pointe on the west, Detroit on the north, and Grosse Pointe Woods and Grosse Pointe Shores (Grosse Pointe Shores, MI Movers) on the northeast. Lakeshore Drive begins in Grosse Pointe Farms, where, just east of Fisher Road, the eastbound driver or pedestrian on Jefferson Avenue descends to lake level, following the curvature of the lakefront to the northeast. The area is one of the most affluent parts of Michigan.

Geography

Saint Paul on the Lake Catholic Church (1899) in Grosse Pointe Farms (Get Movers Prices for Grosse Pointe Farms, MI), one of many landmarks along Lakeshore Drive - French Gothic by Harry J. Rill.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 12.32 square miles (31.91 km2), of which, 2.75 square miles (7.12 km2) is land and 9.57 square miles (24.79 km2) is water. The water is part of Lake St. Clair (St. Clair, Michigan Relocation).

The Farms has a more varied topography and streetscape than the other southern Grosse Pointes. While Grosse Pointe and Grosse Pointe Park are built on a standard street grid and are basically flat, Grosse Pointe Farms (Get Moves Prices for Grosse Pointe Farms, MI) is partially built on the same grid flowing out of Detroit, but also features districts with irregular, curving street paths. Furthermore, a low but noticeable ridge, likely a dune or beach ridge from when Lake Saint Clair was at a higher water level, runs through the center of the city. The Farms also contains the "point" in Grosse Pointe, where, just east of the Grosse Pointe War Memorial, there is a large bend in the lakeshore, such that those on the shoreline face east, instead of south, as they do when on the shoreline of neighboring Grosse Pointe, closer to the entrance of the Detroit River.

The cityscape varies widely, with large sections of old homes ranging from bungalows to mansions, and a few newer sections with ranch houses or luxury homes built on subdivided estates. The Farms has a downtown on Kercheval Avenue combining historic buildings with newer, neo-traditional storefronts.
