Excellent service
Very responsive in scheduling my move and coping with changes.  Movers were outstanding for both pick up and delivery.  Competent professionals.  I would absolutely recommend them.

Great experience.
Overall great experience. I needed to move to another state.  The time period was somewhat short.  I interviewed 3 carriers and chose Rose Moving.  The initial quote did not change, instead I received a refund. Beverly was my coordinator.  She was great. She kept me abreast of all that was happening.  The loaders arrived on time and were efficient and professional. The driver maintained contact from the road and arrived on time at my destination.  The off-loaders he used were so great that I plan to use them in a couple of months for my local move.

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.

River waterfront in downtown Manistee (Get Moving Cost for Manistee, MI)

Manistee (Get Relocation Estimate for Manistee, MI) is a city in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 6,226 at the 2010 census. It is the county seat of Manistee (Manistee, MI Movers). The name "Manistee" is from an Ojibwe word first applied to the principal river of the county. The derivation is not certain, but it may be from ministigweyaa, "river with islands at its mouth". Other sources claim that it was an Ojibwe term meaning "spirit of the woods."

Manistee (Manistee, Michigan Relocation Company) is located to the northeast of the city, but is politically separate. The city is located at the mouth of the Manistee River on Lake Michigan.

History

Missionaries visited Manistee (Get Relocation Quote for Manistee, MI) in the early 19th century, and a Jesuit mission house is known to have been located on the NW shore of Lake Manistee (Get Movers Cost for Manistee, MI) in 1826. In 1832, a group of traders from Massachusetts built a log house up the Manistee (Get Move Estimate for Manistee, MI) River. However, they were soon driven off by the Ottawa.

The village of Manistee (Get Move Prices for Manistee, MI) was one of about 15 Ottawa villages along the shore of Lake Michigan in 1830. Much of the Manistee (Get Moving Estimate for Manistee, MI) River Valley, including Manistee (Get Movers Prices for Manistee, MI) itself, was an Ottawa Reservation from 1836-1848.

The first permanent Euro-American settlement was made on 16 April 1841, when John Stronach and his brother Joseph Stronach arrived at the mouth of the Manistee (Get Moves Estimate for Manistee, MI) River in a schooner loaded with fifteen men and equipment to establish a saw mill.

On October 8, 1871, the town was practically destroyed by fire; on the same day the Peshtigo Fire, the Great Chicago Fire, and fires in Port Huron (Port Huron, Michigan Relocation Companies) and Holland occurred.

In 2000, Manistee (Get Moves Cost for Manistee, MI) made national headlines after a judge and jury convicted a woman for expressing privately to her mother her wish that immigrants would learn English, deeming it "insulting conduct" consisting of "fighting words" that was punishable under local ordinance. Allegations of improper procedure and irregularities in the court records appeared. Two years later (November 1, 2002) and after the defendant spent four nights in jail, the conviction was overturned by the state Court of Appeals.
