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.

Verified Review
Senior Friendly Moving Company
I moved my 92 year old mother from our home in northeastern OH to Colorado Springs.  After interviewing 3 moving cos., we decided to go with Allied - Rose Moving was the company which actually moved her belongings, not the local Allied franchise.  This was a littler disconcerting for me at first, since I had expected that the local company I had chosen would be the actual movers - there are always so many ways that a partial load move can get screwed up.  However, my fears were groundless.  My only point of contact with Rose was Jeff Hayes, the driver, and he was friendly, professional and very efficient.  My mother moved into a senior retirement home and Jeff was very respectful of the needs of the other residents (regarding noise and blocking entrances), which was a relief - didn't want to make a bad first impression for my mom with her new neighbors!  What's more, unlike the representatives from the other movers, Jeff interacted with my mom (who was the one who was actually paying for the move) - the others seemed to ignore my mom and only address their remarks to me.  I have noticed this type of disrespectful behavior when seniors are concerned and dislike it.

Although there was a small glitch along the way, Jeff's only concern was to do whatever it took to make it right - there was no knee-jerk reaction of "It's not my fault" which seems to be very common nowadays.  This glitch was resolved satisfactorily.

All in all, this was an unexpectedly pleasant and worry-free ( or as close as any move can come to being worry-free) move.  If Rose's other drivers are similar in caliber to Jeff, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rose to anyone who is planning a move.

Main St., Downtown Milan (Get Moves Cost for Milan, MI)

Milan (Get Moving Quote for Milan, MI) Listeni/ˈmlən/ is a city in Monroe and Washtenaw counties in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 5,836 at the 2010 census. About 60% of the city's area and 75% of its residents are located on the Washtenaw (Washtenaw, MI Movers) side adjacent to York Township in Washtenaw (Washtenaw, Michigan Moving Company); while 40% percent of the city's area and 25% of its residents are located on the Monroe County side adjacent to Milan Township.

ORIGINS: The city was founded in 1831 by John Marvin, Bethuel Hack, and Harmon Allen. Hack was the first postmaster, and he named the community "Farmer" since everyone there was a farmer. Drug store owner Henry Tolan took over as postmaster and re-named the community "Tolanville" after himself. Next, David Woodard became the post master, with the post office in his flour mill. He re-named the community "Woodard's Mills." The postmaster in Washington D.C. noticed the confusion caused by this swift change in names and decreed that it would henceforth be called "Milan" after the neighboring Milan (Milan, MI Moving Companies). French settlers in the area named the township "Milan" because they once hoped to produce grapes and wine in the area, so the Italian town by that name with its wine-making reputation seemed appropriate. The river going through Milan and Milan township is the Saline River, part of the River Raisin watershed. "River Raisin" refers to Raisin, the French word for grape. Small wild grapes were growing on the banks of the river, so early French settlers in the Monroe area hoped that this area would be wine country. Just southeast of Milan, along Plank road, is an old community by the name of "Grape" which is a reflection of this desire to create a wine producing area. Milan was a village until 1967, when it was incorporated as a city.

Prevalent architecture

The old Milan (Get Moving Prices for Milan, MI) Fire Barn

Turn-of-the-century, two-story homes are prevalent. About one-quarter of the homes in Milan (Get Move Estimate for Milan, MI) were built before World War II, and 21 percent built between 1940 and 1959. A symbol of the architecture is Community House, a two-story grist mill Henry Ford purchased in 1935. Ford used the area now known as Wilson Park to run a coil manufacturing plant, and soybean-to-paint operation for the Model T autos. Area residents can utilize the Community House for small gatherings and it now houses the City Recreation Department dance studio.

Despite the increase in development, Milan is still equated with country living. It's not unusual to find a home with a barn and a kennel sitting on a couple of acres outside the city limits, and a hand-built wooden organ factory is housed in a relocated barn tucked along the Saline River. The small town began to develop its industrial base in the 1960s. Until recently, a great deal of its tax base was from the Visteon facility (Ford Motor Co.) Downtown Milan boasts a place on the National Register of Historic Places with fine examples of Italianate, International, Art Modern, and other architectural styles. One corner features a fully restored Fire Barn once used as a library, jail and as village hall over the years. It now houses the Chamber of Commerce (Commerce, MI Moving Reviews) office and Milan Area Historical Society meeting place.

Part of its present City Hall is the former Ford Power Plant used for the Village industries. Henry Ford built the power plant in 1937 when he dredged Ford Lake. He also used a former lumber yard garage as a factory to make engine ignition coils. Ford intended his factory to depend upon hydraulic power, which is why he built a very fine dam to power his plant. However, the water power was inadequate, and his "Ford Industries" actually ran on steam engines depending on coal.

Government and infrastructure

The United States Postal Service operates the Milan (Get Moving Cost for Milan, MI) Post Office.

A Federal Bureau of Prisons prison, the Federal Correctional Institution, Milan (FCI), is in adjacent York Charter (York Charter, Michigan Mover Reviews). Anthony Chebatoris was the only person in Michigan’s state history to receive the death penalty by hanging (since Michigan became a state). He was convicted of robbing a bank in Midland, Mich., where someone died as a result of the botched bank heist. The punishment was carried out at the Milan prison at 5:08 a.m. on July 8, 1938. The body was taken to Stevens Funeral Home in Milan, where it was embalmed, placed in a casket, and buried at Marble Park Cemetery just west of Milan. His gravestone says “Tony” Chebatoris, 1900-1938.
