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

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.

THIS COMPANY MOVED MY FURNITURE AND BOXES TO MY NEW PLACE.
THEY WERE VERY PUNCTUAL AND RESPONSIVE TO THE DATE WE SET FOR THE MOVE. THEY DID A PROFESSIONAL JOB LOADING AND UNLOADING MY FURNITURE AND BOXES. I WOULD DEFINITELY USE THEM AGAIN BECAUSE NOTHING WAS DAMAGED.
