Great Experience
We moved from Michigan to Colorado and the experience was nothing short of great! The crew who loaded our stuff to put into storage was extremely professional. The team lead even saw the stress in my face and put me at ease by saying, "Don't worry, this is easy! It'll be great!" That really helped! The crew who unloaded our stuff in Colorado was top notch as well. Very friendly and professional. Jim and Beverly were both very responsive and great to work with. I would definitely recommend Rose!

My move couldn't have gone smoother.
You want your stuff moved quickly, efficiently and safely?  Better contact Allied.  They gave me all the boxes, paper and wardrobes I needed to move 1400 miles from Michigan to Florida. Movers (Brian and Glenn) showed up on time and did all the work.  They gave me a date for delivery and I drove to my new location.  Everything arrived on the day promised and they loaded it all into a storage unit so I just pick up a few boxes a day. They also set up the king size bed and moved all the furniture to the exact location I wanted. Erica and Beverly always kept me informed as to my move status. Movers were a crew of two.  Never saw anybody work that hard on both ends of the move. Thought about using those giant pods until I found out the cost AND that I would have to load and unload it. Couldn't be happier with the move and I won't miss the snow.

Professional and efficient movers!
We needed to get moved quickly and called Rose Moving who was referred to us from our realtor.  Not only were they able to move us on such short notice (3 days notice) they did an excellent job.  The moving crew was professional and efficient. They worked really hard and did an excellent job moving our belongings with care.  I would highly recommend using Rose Moving, definitely worth every penny.  If we ever need a moving company again they are the only company I will call.

History

The township was initially created as Bucklin Township in 1827. Due to postal regulations prohibiting two post offices having the same name, when the township was further subdivided unique names had to be found. Thus Bucklin was divided into Pekin and Nankin, a result of a wave of interest in China. Pekin was further divided in 1833 into Redford and Dearborn Townships. The name Redford was chosen supposedly because Indians forded the River Rouge (River Rouge, MI Movers) where the river runs through Redford. Thus "Redford," since "rouge" is red in French.

The township used to go all the way to Greenfield Road, but in the 1920s and early 1930s the eastern portions of the township were annexed by Detroit (Detroit, MI Moving Companies). In 1918 there was a post office named "Five Points" operating between 6 Mile Road and 7 Mile Road along the road of that name.
