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!

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.

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.

Stand against slavery

In 1843, Adam Crosswhite and his family ran away from Francis Giltner's plantation near Carrollton, Kentucky because Crosswhite learned that his four children were to be sold. The Crosswhites made the tough journey north and finally settled in Marshall (Get Move Prices for Marshall, MI). In response, Giltner organized a group of men led by his son David Giltner to capture what they believed to be their true property.

On the morning of January 26, 1847, the slave catchers and a local deputy sheriff were pounding on Adam's door. His neighbors heard the noise and came running. The cry of "slave catchers!" was yelled through the streets of Marshall (Get Relocation Prices for Marshall, MI). Soon over 100 people surrounded the Crosswhite home.

Threats were shouted back and forth. One of the slave catchers began to demand that people in the crowd give him their names. They were proud to tell him and even told him the correct spelling. Each name was written down in a little book. Finally, the deputy sheriff, swayed by the crowd's opinion, decided he should arrest the men from Kentucky instead. By the time the slave catchers would post bond and get out of jail, the Crosswhites were on their way to Canada.

Next the Giltners went to the federal court in Detroit. They sued the crowd from Marshall (Get Moves Estimate for Marshall, MI) for damages. Since they had many of their names it was easy to decide whom to sue. After two trials in federal court in Detroit, the sole remaining defendant in the case, local banker Charles T. Gorham, was ordered to pay the value of the slaves plus court costs. To curry political favor, Detroit entrepreneur Zachariah Chandler stepped in to pay these costs on Gorham's behalf.

Because of the Crosswhite case and many others like it, Sen. Henry Clay from Kentucky pushed a new law through Congress in 1850 known as the Fugitive Slave Law, which made it very risky for anyone to help an escaped slave.
