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!

Professional and efficient movers!
We needed to get moved quickly and called Rose Moving who was referred to us from our realtor.  Not only were they able to move us on such short notice (3 days notice) they did an excellent job.  The moving crew was professional and efficient. They worked really hard and did an excellent job moving our belongings with care.  I would highly recommend using Rose Moving, definitely worth every penny.  If we ever need a moving company again they are the only company I will call.

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.

History

In 1836 three entrepreneurs named Dibble, Kingsbury and Kendall bought 480 acres (1.9 km2) along the Thornapple River from Detroit banker Eurotas P. Hastings. The three platted the area into lots, and soon a small community arose. In 1843, the state legislature designated Hastings as the County Seat of Barry (Barry, Michigan Moving Reviews). The first paper, the Barry (Barry, Michigan Moving Company) Pioneer, began publishing in 1851, and a second paper, the Republic (Republic, MI Mover Reviews)an Banner, began in 1856. The latter publication, a weekly paper published on Thursdays, continues to be published as the Hastings (Get Moving Prices for Hastings, MI) Banner.

Hastings was incorporated as a village in 1855, with a population of around 300, and on March 11, 1871, officially become a city. The Barry (Barry, MI Relocation Company) Courthouse, which is still in use today, was built in 1893. The city grew slowly, reaching 6,500 people in 1960 and remaining nearly flat through 1990.

Starting in late 2012, construction began on a Holiday Inn Express. It will be located on West M-43.
