Stress Removed - Excellent Moving Experience
From start to finish Rose Moving handled it all.  We recently moved back to Michigan from Tennessee.  What could have been a very stressful move could not have gone smoother.  Rose Moving picked up our belongings the day before we closed on our TN home and delivered to our new Michigan home right after we closed.  Jim and Beverly from the office were both very professional.  Often times they contacted us with the answer before we knew we had a question.  All of our belongings arrived in perfect shape.  The movers at both homes were very professional and made sure they placed the furniture exactly where you wanted it.  Thanks Rose - you made it easy!

I would like to take some time to thank you for my move from Temperance Michigan to Bonita Springs Florida. Starting with Mike Engelhardt who sold the job, to Beverly Thomason, who kind of guided us through everything. Then tree was the 2 crews who loaded and unloaded the truck. And last but not least was Robert Meacham who watched over everything and made it happen. I would like to thank each and every one of them, for their professional approach and their pleasent and polite manner in which they went about the businsess of moving my wife and I . Further more I hope that who ever is in charge would pass a BIG thank you to all of those mentioned above. Thank you, Manuel & Brenda Chambers

History

1884 map of Mt. Pleasant (Mt. Pleasant, MI Mover Reviews).

White settlers first arrived in what is now Mount Pleasant after the Graduation Act of 1854, allowing white settlers to purchase land from the government at discount rates. The Treaty of 1855 relocated the Native American Ojibwa (Saginaw Chippewa Tribe) from Saginaw, Swan Creek, and Black River to land in Isabella (Isabella, Michigan Moving) (Isabella Indian Reservation). Many non-natives soon moved to Mount Pleasant predicting prosperous relations with the natives. The Homestead Act of 1862 brought many new settlers to Mount Pleasant to live on the free land that the government allowed them.

In 1875, a devastating fire started at the Fancher Building on the north corner of Broadway Street and Main Street. It eventually moved east down Broadway, destroying several buildings. Seven years later another fire would damage buildings on the south side of Broadway.

In 1928, large quantities of oil were discovered to exist in the Mt. Pleasant (Mt. Pleasant, Michigan Moving) area.
