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.

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.

#movemadeeasy   Summed up in a tweet.  From beginning to end -excellent
From the moment we called and talked to Rose Moving they were professional and obviously knew what would be needed to made this "winter" move easier on us.  Communication up to and after the move was excellent.  The movers themselves knew how to make sure nothing was broken and arrived exactly on schedule.  They moved our baby grand piano and did an unbelievable job!  We felt like we had made new friends that cared about our move as much as we did by the time it ended.  Thanks for everything!

Montmorency (Get Move Estimate for Montmorency, MI) is a county in the U.S. state of Michigan. As of the 2010 census, the population was 9,765. The county seat is Atlanta. In 1840, it was first named "Cheonoquet" after a well known Chippewa (also known as Ojibwa) Chief, whose name meant Big Cloud. Cheonoquet took part in Indian treaties in 1807, 1815, 1825 and 1837. In 1843, the county was renamed for the Count Morenci (Morenci, Michigan Moving Reviews), who aided the colonies in the war with England. The county was organized in 1881. The reason for the change in spelling is subject to some dispute. See List of Michigan county name etymologies. The name Montmorency probably means Mountain Moor. Montmorency is very much a boggy land or moor that is at the top of a broad mount or highland. When the county was formed in 1881, some land area was taken from Cheboygan (Cheboygan, Michigan Moving) and Alpena counties. Three townships were divided, namely Briley, Montmorency and Rust. By 1901 Albert, Hillman and Wheatfield were added. Brush Creek, now known as Hillman, was the first county seat. In 1891 the county seat was moved to Atlanta.

Montmorency (Get Moving Quote for Montmorency, MI) is home to Michigan's most endangered species and one of the most endangered species in the world: the Hungerford's crawling water beetle. The species lives in only five locations in the world, two of which are in Montmorency (Get Move Estimate for Montmorency, MI), both inside the Mackinaw State Forest. The first site is along the East Branch of the Black River where two adult beetles were found in surveys in 1989 and two more again in 1996. In July 1999, six additional adult beetles were identified in the county living in Van Hetton Creek. This latter find was significant as it represented a new location beyond those originally identified when the Hungerford's crawling water beetle was categorized as endangered on March 7, 1994, under the provisions of the U.S. Endangered Species Act. The Van Hetton Creek sighting therefore provides the possibility that more of these very rare beetles might be found elsewhere in Montmorency (Get Relocation Prices for Montmorency, MI).

Geography

  • According to the 2000 census, the county has a total area of 562.44 square miles (1,456.7 km2), of which 547.63 square miles (1,418.4 km2) (or 97.37%) is land and 14.81 square miles (38.4 km2) (or 2.63%) is water.

Most of the county is covered by state forest land. There is and has been an abundance of lakes. Glaciers shaped the area, creating a unique regional ecosystem. A large portion of the area is the so-called Grayling (Grayling, Michigan Relocation Companies) outwash plain, which consists of broad outwash plain including sandy ice-disintegration ridges; jack pine barrens, some white pine-red pine forest, and northern hardwood forest. Large lakes were created by glacial action. The county is considered to be part of Northern Michigan.
