Great Experience
We moved from Michigan to Colorado and the experience was nothing short of great! The crew who loaded our stuff to put into storage was extremely professional. The team lead even saw the stress in my face and put me at ease by saying, "Don't worry, this is easy! It'll be great!" That really helped! The crew who unloaded our stuff in Colorado was top notch as well. Very friendly and professional. Jim and Beverly were both very responsive and great to work with. I would definitely recommend Rose!

My move couldn't have gone smoother.
You want your stuff moved quickly, efficiently and safely?  Better contact Allied.  They gave me all the boxes, paper and wardrobes I needed to move 1400 miles from Michigan to Florida. Movers (Brian and Glenn) showed up on time and did all the work.  They gave me a date for delivery and I drove to my new location.  Everything arrived on the day promised and they loaded it all into a storage unit so I just pick up a few boxes a day. They also set up the king size bed and moved all the furniture to the exact location I wanted. Erica and Beverly always kept me informed as to my move status. Movers were a crew of two.  Never saw anybody work that hard on both ends of the move. Thought about using those giant pods until I found out the cost AND that I would have to load and unload it. Couldn't be happier with the move and I won't miss the snow.

Honest, Caring and Considerate Movers
Jim Stafford and his staff representing Allied Van Lines were spectacular! My move from MI to CA went smooth from start to finish with the most honest, caring and considerate guys I have ever met! The quote was right on, no extra charges, on time for both pick-up and delivery with phone calls in between just checking to see if we needed anything more.  Not one item was damaged or broken from 60 boxes and 8 rooms of furniture!  The team of packers and drivers were very quick and so very kind!  Hardest working teams I have ever seen in the moving business!!

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

Milan (Get Relocation Cost 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, Michigan Moving Companies) side adjacent to York Township in Washtenaw (Washtenaw, Michigan Relocation Companies); 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). 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.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 3.40 square miles (8.81 km2), of which, 3.32 square miles (8.60 km2) is land and 0.08 square miles (0.21 km2) is water. Milan is located 16 miles (26 km) southeast of Ann Arbor (Ann Arbor, Michigan Relocation) and 37 miles (60 km) northwest of Toledo.

Prevalent architecture

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

Turn-of-the-century, two-story homes are prevalent. About one-quarter of the homes in Milan (Get Movers Prices 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 Relocation Company) 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 Moves Quote for Milan, MI) Post Office.

A Federal Bureau of Prisons prison, the Federal Correctional Institution, Milan (FCI), is in adjacent York Charter (York Charter, MI Moving Company). 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.
