Rose Moving and Storage were the BEST!
Jim came to our home and gave us a very fair and thorough estimate. Movers were great, as well! Steve and his crew took great care in moving all of our household items with nothing damaged. Beverly was wonderful, and she checked on us throughout and after the move. In the past, we have had terrible experiences! Trust me, you get what you pay for. We highly recommend this company, and will use them again for our future move.

Great team! I would definitely use Rose Moving again in the future.
I used Rose moving 22-27 April 2013 to relocate from MI to SC.  The company worked with me and my situation.  We had household goods in a condo and a storage unit.  Everything went great and everyone was on time.  They accommodated extra requests.  The driver and his team were great to work with, friendly and professional.  The guys worked very hard packing and unloading.  Mr. Stafford was also great to work with, professional and true to his word.  Would definitely use them in the future.
