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!

Highly Recommended
I have had the occasion to use movers several times in the last five years  and I would say this was one of the  smoothest  of them all. The crew leader, Dave Cornett was highly experienced and very polite as was his assistant Chris. They were very careful in preparing both locations so as to avoid damage to floors, railings and walls.  I would highly recommend Rose Moving and Storage.
