Thank You, Rose Moving!
I loved everything about Rose Moving! Our salesman, Jim, was very helpful in explaining to us the entire process of hiring a professional moving company. All of my moves in the past were done the "old fashioned" way which I have to be honest, I'll never do again after how smooth everything was with Rose. I hate asking friends and family for help.

After Jim made us feel comfortable, he gave us a quote that was a little more than I thought it would be, but again... this is my first time hiring a "real" movers. Don't tell Jim this, but I did send out his quote to a couple competitors who came back in the same ballpark. :P

It tooks us a couple of months to nail down move dates. After we had those figured out we called our move coordinator, Judy, and let her know. If you've never used a moving company like me, you have no clue what to expect. Judy literally called and/or e-mailed me on days that I was freaking out... almost like she was reading my mind. I'd say over the course of our move, I spoke with her at least a dozen times. She made me feel like I was in control of everything even though I didn't lift a finger. :)

The lead foreman during the delivery (can't remember his name) was very professional which kept my stress level down to almost non-existent. His crew worked hard and unloaded all of my stuff in what had to be a record time. I couldn't believe how quick it went.

I opted to hire them for help with the unpacking and that was SOOOO worth it. I didn't have to worry about breaking my back trying to open all those boxes (I can't even tell you how many there were). I honestly didn't think I had so much stuff. They even removed all the boxes and cleaned up the debris.

I was able to sit down and relax the first night in my new home - thanks to Rose Moving & Storage! I'm so glad I found you.

I highly recommend them for your move.
I moved household items with Rose Moving and storage twice before.  They moved items from Michigan to Phoenix and then back again 5 years later.  There was not even a hint of any "event".  No breakage, no lost items, no nothing.  A  perfectly uneventful move, just the way they should be.

In August, 2010 I contacted Rose Moving (Jim Stafford) regarding a move from Auburn Hills, Michigan to Las Vegas, Nevada.  You see, I used a competitor to move me out of my home in Rochester, MI into storage.  I was not happy with Corrigan as they quoted 17,000lbs and ended up 23,000lbs & they broke a chandelier and then denied the repair claim.

I contacted Jim and he was incredibly informative and low key with me.  He explained all I needed to know in order to feel comfortable about moving my goods out of a competitors storage facility.  He took the time to follow up with me numerous times over the 7 months of being in storage and to "teach" me some of the ins and outs of moving and storage.

Come time to actually do the move, Jim provided me a firm quote to move me to LV that was less expensive, would assign a "master mover" to my move, and would personally oversee the unpack and load of my belongings out of a competitors storage.  Really, who could do more?  Have you ever heard of a mover providing a FIRM, not to exceed quote?

At the last moment, due to our inability to return to Michigan to supervise the unload from storage and load to Allied truck (a requirement of Corrigan Moving), we were unable to use Jim and Rose Moving.

I  highly recommend them for your move.   It was a mistake for me to get involved with a moving company other than Jim Stafford and Rose Moving and Storage.

Oakland (Get Relocation Quote for Oakland, MI) is a county in the U.S. state of Michigan. As of the 2010 census, the population was 1,202,362. The county seat is Pontiac. Oakland County is part of the Detroit metropolitan area, though the city of Detroit is located in neighboring Wayne County, south of 8 Mile Road. It is among the ten highest income counties in the United States with populations over one million people. Oakland County is home to 62 cities, villages and townships. These communities range from blue-collar, inner-ring suburbs like Ferndale and Hazel Park, to affluent cities such as Birmingham, Bloomfield Hills, West Bloomfield Township, Oakland Township and Franklin. The white-collar cities of Troy, Southfield, Farmington Hills, and Auburn Hills host a rich mix of Fortune 500 companies and international firms. The cities of Royal Oak and Ferndale attract many young people to their mature, bohemian downtowns, which have many restaurants, shops and night clubs. Many places such as Waterford Township, Independence (Independence, MI Moving), and Springfield Township to name a few have a variety of businesses and incomes. Oakland County is also home to Oakland University, a large public institution that straddles the Auburn Hills and Rochester Hills border.

The county's knowledge-based economic initiative, coined "Automation Alley", is one of the largest employment centers for engineering and related occupations in the United States. Oakland (Get Movers Prices for Oakland, MI) has shared in the recent economic hardships brought on by troubles at General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler, although it has fared better than Detroit and Flint, as its economy is more diverse and less reliant on manufacturing jobs. All three automotive companies are major employers within southeast Michigan and have a significant presence within Oakland (Get Move Prices for Oakland, MI).

Geography

According to the 2000 census, the county has a total area of 908.00 square miles (2,351.7 km2), of which 872.51 square miles (2,259.8 km2) (or 96.09%) is land and 35.49 square miles (91.9 km2) (or 3.91%) is water.

Oakland (Get Moving Prices for Oakland, MI) was originally divided into 25 separate townships, which are listed below. Each township is roughly equal in size at six miles (10 km) by six miles, for a total township area of 36 square miles (93 km2). The roots of this design were born out of the Land Ordinance of 1785 and the subsequent Northwest Ordinance of 1787. Oakland (Get Movers Quote for Oakland, MI) itself is a prime example of the land policy that was established, as all townships are equal in size (save for slight variations due to waterways). Section 16 in each township was reserved for financing and maintaining public education, and even today many schools in Oakland (Get Movers Estimate for Oakland, MI) townships are located within that section.

Wayne County, where the city of Detroit is located, borders Oakland (Get Relocation Prices for Oakland, MI) to the south. The southern boundary is 8 Mile Road, also known as "Baseline Road" in some areas. The baseline was used during the original surveying for Michigan, and it serves as the northern/southern boundaries for counties from Lake St. Clair all the way to Lake Michigan. This divide (8 Mile Road) was historically known as an unofficial racial dividing line between the largely black city and almost exclusively white suburbs. In recent years, however, the patterns of de facto segregation have faded, as middle-class African-Americans depart the city for inner-ring suburbs, notably Southfield (75.08%), west of Woodward Avenue. Based on the 2010 Census, cities like Farmington (25.3%), Farmington Hills (31.7%), Novi (30.12%),Oak Park (62.61%), Lathrup Village (72.97%), Orchard Lake Village (Orchard Lake Village, Michigan Moving Companies) (16.08%), Rochester Hills (20.94%), Troy (29.4%), Wixom (26.28%), West Bloomfield (24.0%), Bloomfield (18.28%), Bloomfield Hills (14.2%), Ferndale (17.2%), and Madison Heights (17.7%) have significant non-white populations, most notably African American and Asian Americans.

History

Created by territorial Gov. Lewis Cass in 1819, sparsely settled Oakland was twice its current size at first, but shrank as Michigan's population grew and new counties were established. Woodward Avenue and the Detroit (Detroit, MI Moving) and Pontiac Railroad helped draw settlers in the 1840s. By 1840, Oakland had more than fifty mills. Pontiac, located on the Clinton River, was Oakland's first town and became the county seat. After the Civil War, Oakland was mainly an agricultural county with numerous isolated villages. By the end of the 19th century, three rail lines served Pontiac and the city attracted carriage and wagon factories. Streetcars began moving people in the late 1890s.

Developers turned southern Oakland County into a suburb of Detroit in the 1890s, when a Cincinnati firm platted a section of Royal Oak called "Urbanrest." Migration worked both ways. Several thousand people moved from Oakland County farms to Detroit as the city attracted factories. By 1910, a number of rich Detroiters had summer homes and some year-round residences in what became Bloomfield Hills (Bloomfield Hills, MI Relocation). The auto age enveloped Pontiac in the early 1900s. The Oakland Motor Car Company was founded in 1907 and became a part of General Motors Corp., which was soon Pontiac's dominant firm.

In the 1950s, the Detroit metropolitan population began migrating to the suburbs. Oakland (Get Moving Cost for Oakland, MI) is among the ten highest income counties in the United States with more than one million population. The median price of a home in Oakland (Get Moves Estimate for Oakland, MI) skyrocketed to $164,697, more than $30,000 above the national median. Oakland (Get Moves Estimate for Oakland, MI) is home to popular super-regional shopping malls such as Somerset Collection, Twelve Oaks Mall, and Great Lakes Crossing Outlets.

Government

The county government operates the jail, operates the major local courts, keeps files of deeds and mortgages, maintains vital records, administers public health regulations, and participates with the state in the provision of welfare and other social services. The county board of commissioners controls the budget but has limited authority to make laws or ordinances. In Michigan, most local government functions—police and fire, building and zoning, tax assessment, street maintenance, etc. — are the responsibility of individual cities and townships. Oakland County has an elected sheriff, and his or her law-enforcement services are used throughout the county. Fourteen cities/townships do not have municipal police forces, but rather contract with the sheriff for police services specific to the municipalities. For instance, the city of Rochester Hills (Rochester Hills, MI Moving Reviews) does not have a "Rochester Hills (Rochester Hills, Michigan Moving Reviews) Police Department," but instead has an established sheriff substation in the city with deputies who are dedicated to that city only. That branch operates as the Oakland County Sheriff's Department, Rochester Hills (Rochester Hills, Michigan Moving) substation. The sheriff operates in the same manner with other municipalities who opt not to have their own police agencies. This typically is a cost-effective way for municipalities to provide police services to its citizens. The county sheriff also maintains a civil division, marine division, alcohol and traffic enforcement units, and an aviation division.

Politics

Oakland (Get Moving Cost for Oakland, MI) historically was a stronghold of the Republican Party, a classic bastion of suburban conservatism for most of the 20th century. However, since the 1990s it has become more of a swing county and has voted for the Democratic candidate for President in the last five elections. Democrats also hold four of the six county-wide elective offices.

In 1996, Bill Clinton became the first Democrat to secure the plurality of Oakland (Get Movers Cost for Oakland, MI) presidential votes since Lyndon Johnson in 1964. Al Gore and John Kerry also won by razor-thin pluralities with Oakland (Get Movers Cost for Oakland, MI) voters against President George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004.

In 2006, Oakland (Get Movers Cost for Oakland, MI) favored incumbent Governor Jennifer Granholm (D) by 10 percent margin while favoring Attorney General Mike Cox (R) by 16% and Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land (R) by 21%. The Republican Party swept Oakland (Get Move Quote for Oakland, MI)'s 2010 statewide elections favoring Governor Rick Snyder (R) by a 22 percent margin and nine percent margins for both AG Bill Schuette and SoS Ruth Johnson. However, most countywide offices are still held by Republicans, and Republicans still have a majority on the county commission.

In the 111th Congress, Oakland (Get Movers Prices for Oakland, MI) is represented by two Democrats, Gary Peters and Sander Levin, and two Republicans, Thaddeus McCotter and Mike Rogers.

Major highways

  • I-75 (Walter P. Chrysler Freeway) is the main north–south highway in the region, serving Flint, Pontiac, Troy, and Detroit (Detroit, Michigan Relocation Company), before continuing south (as the Fisher and Detroit (Detroit, Michigan Relocation)-Toledo Freeways) to serve many of the communities along the shore of Lake Erie.
  • I-96 runs northwest-southeast through Oakland (Get Moves Estimate for Oakland, MI) and (as the Jeffries Freeway) has its eastern terminus in downtown Detroit.
  • I-275 runs north–south from I-75 in the south to the junction of I-96 and I-696 in the north, providing a bypass through the western suburbs of Detroit (Detroit, Michigan Movers).
  • I-696 (Walter P. Reuther Freeway) runs east–west from the junction of I-96 and I-275, providing a route through the northern suburbs of Detroit (Detroit, MI Moving Companies). Taken together, I-275 and I-696 form a semicircle around Detroit (Detroit, MI Relocation Companies).
  • US 24 ends north of Pontiac at I-75. To the south, US 24 serves suburban Detroit and Monroe before entering Ohio. Much of US 24 in Oakland (Get Relocation Estimate for Oakland, MI) is named Telegraph Road, and it is a major north–south road extending from Toledo, Ohio, through Monroe, Wayne, and Oakland Counties to Pontiac. It gained notoriety in a song (Telegraph Road) by the group Dire Straits.
  • M-1 (Woodward Avenue) has a northern terminus in Pontiac. The route continues southerly from Oakland (Get Moves Quote for Oakland, MI) into the City of Detroit, ending downtown. The Detroit Zoo is located along M-1 in Oakland (Get Movers Estimate for Oakland, MI). M-1 is also home to the Woodward Dream Cruise, a classic-car cruise from Pontiac to Ferndale that is held in August. It is the largest single-day classic-car cruise in America.
  • M-5
  • M-10 (John C. Lodge Freeway) runs largely parallel to I-75 from Southfield (Southfield, Michigan Relocation Company) to downtown Detroit. The service drives are named Northwestern Highway.
  • M-15 (Ortonville (Ortonville, MI Moving Companies) Road, Main Street in Clarkston)
  • M-24 (Lapeer Road) has a southern terminus at I-75 north of Pontiac (Pontiac, MI Moving Company). To the north, the route continues to Lapeer and beyond. Note: M-24 and US 24 do not intersect at present, although this was the case until the 1950s.
  • M-39 (Southfield Freeway) runs north–south from Southfield to Allen Park (Allen Park, Michigan Relocation Companies) from I-94. North of 10 Mile Road, the freeway ends and continues as Southfield Road into Birmingham.
  • M-59 (Highland Road [from Pontiac westerly], Huron Street [within Pontiac] and Veterans Memorial Freeway [Pontiac to Utica]), continues east in Macomb County as Hall Road to Clinton (Clinton, MI Relocation Companies) and west to I-96 near Howell
  • M-102 Perhaps better known as 8 Mile Road, M-102 follows the Oakland (Oakland, MI Mover Reviews)–Wayne county line for most of its length. 8 Mile Road, known by many due to the film 8 Mile, forms the dividing line between Detroit on the south and the suburbs of Macomb and Oakland counties on the north. It is also known as Baseline Road outside of Detroit, because it coincides with the baseline used in surveying Michigan; that baseline is also the boundary for a number of Michigan counties. It is designated M-102 for much of its length in Wayne (Wayne, Michigan Relocation Company).
  • M-150 (Rochester (Rochester, MI Relocation) Road) serves as a spur highway from M-59 into the city of Rochester (Rochester, Michigan Mover Reviews).
  • Grand River Avenue connects the suburbs of Brighton, Novi, and Farmington (Farmington, Michigan Moving Reviews) to downtown Detroit. The avenue follows the route of old US 16, before I-96 replaced it in 1962. It is one of the five roads planned by Judge August Woodward to radiate out from Detroit and connect the city to other parts of the state.

Mile roads

  • Surface-street navigation in metro Detroit is commonly anchored by "mile roads," major east-west surface streets that are spaced at one-mile (1.6 km) intervals and increment as one travels north and away from the city center. Mile roads sometimes have two names, the numeric name (e.g., 15 Mile Road), used in Macomb County, and a local name (e.g., Maple Road), used in Oakland (Get Moves Estimate for Oakland, MI) (for the most part).

Bicycling
