My move with Rose moving was the best…
My move with Rose moving was the best move i have had. Having moved twice before with North American and Bekins, there was no comparison. My salesman, Jim Stafford was professional and very knowlagable. He came back to home twice to make sure we had an accurate quote. He was very patient with my long list of questions. They were not the cheapest mover by far but, I have learned the hard way, that you get what you pay for in this industry. Steve K(the driver) and his guys protected my home like it was their own. My furniture was wrapped before it left my house. Not a scratch on anything. To top it off Rose sent in a cleaning crew after the loading process. The office at Rose was great with any questions that I had. If I move from Chicago it will be with Rose Moving. They are true professionals. Thank again Rose, I will refer you to anyone I know moving!!!!!!

Great Moving Experience!
I used Rose Moving out of Belleville for my move to Texas.  I can say this was a great move from start to finish.  No complaints from me, and I am a very fussy person.  Would definetly use again.  5 stars!

P.S. Tawny was great to work with in the office.

Oscoda (Get Moving Estimate for Oscoda, MI) is an unincorporated community in the U.S. state of Michigan located on the northern side of the Au Sable River where it enters Lake Huron. The community of Au Sable is on the other side of the river. Oscoda is in Oscoda Township in Iosco County, and not in Oscoda (Oscoda, Michigan Mover Reviews), which is to the northwest. The 1990 census population was 1061, although 3,000 personnel were stationed at nearby Wurtsmith Air Force Base. Oscoda is a census-designated place (CDP) for statistical purposes. As of the 2000 census (several years after the closure of the air force base), the population was 992. The post office at Oscoda first opened with the name AuSable on September 23, 1856.

Nearby is the Lumberman's Monument, in honor of the lumberjacks that first populated the area. The State of Michigan has designated Oscoda (Get Moving Quote for Oscoda, MI) as the official home of Paul Bunyan due to the earliest documented publications in the Oscoda (Get Movers Estimate for Oscoda, MI) Press, August 10, 1906, by James MacGillivray (later revised and published in The Detroit (Detroit, Michigan Relocation Company) News in 1910).

Wurtsmith Air Force Base (originally Camp Skeel) was located just outside the community from 1923 to 1993. Wurtsmith was the site of the Strategic Air Command's 379th Bombardment Wing consisting of one nuclear-armed B-52 bomber squadron and one air refueling squadron equipped with KC-135s. The Charter Township of Oscoda (Get Move Cost for Oscoda, MI) created a Redevelopment Authority with the cooperation of the Michigan Legislature. The Wurtsmith Renaissance Zone was created in 1997, which exempted businesses and residents of the 5,000 acres (20 km2) zone from all state and most local taxes.

The Oscoda-Wurtsmith Airport is now a public airport. It occupies a portion of the base and is primarily used for cargo and light general aviation activities. Other tenants include the Aune Medical Center, Alcona Health Center Dental Clinic, Alpena (Alpena, MI Relocation) Community College, Yankee Air Force Museum - Wurtsmith Division, and numerous private businesses. Some of the former military housing units have been refurbished and now serve as a major population base in the Oscoda area.
