Senior Friendly Moving Company
I moved my 92 year old mother from our home in northeastern OH to Colorado Springs.  After interviewing 3 moving cos., we decided to go with Allied - Rose Moving was the company which actually moved her belongings, not the local Allied franchise.  This was a littler disconcerting for me at first, since I had expected that the local company I had chosen would be the actual movers - there are always so many ways that a partial load move can get screwed up.  However, my fears were groundless.  My only point of contact with Rose was Jeff Hayes, the driver, and he was friendly, professional and very efficient.  My mother moved into a senior retirement home and Jeff was very respectful of the needs of the other residents (regarding noise and blocking entrances), which was a relief - didn't want to make a bad first impression for my mom with her new neighbors!  What's more, unlike the representatives from the other movers, Jeff interacted with my mom (who was the one who was actually paying for the move) - the others seemed to ignore my mom and only address their remarks to me.  I have noticed this type of disrespectful behavior when seniors are concerned and dislike it.

Although there was a small glitch along the way, Jeff's only concern was to do whatever it took to make it right - there was no knee-jerk reaction of "It's not my fault" which seems to be very common nowadays.  This glitch was resolved satisfactorily.

All in all, this was an unexpectedly pleasant and worry-free ( or as close as any move can come to being worry-free) move.  If Rose's other drivers are similar in caliber to Jeff, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Rose to anyone who is planning a move.

Very Good Movers!
The young fellows that came even put together a weightlifting thing, and it wasn’t really a part of their job, but they stayed and did it.  It was just wonderful, because it took them probably a half hour at least to do that.  They came to the house when they said they were going to be there.  They were careful with our furniture.  We did have a couple of broken mirrors, but it was the edges and that was the only thing, so it was very minimal and we can expect something like that.  Their price was very reasonable.

Honest, Caring and Considerate Movers
Jim Stafford and his staff representing Allied Van Lines were spectacular! My move from MI to CA went smooth from start to finish with the most honest, caring and considerate guys I have ever met! The quote was right on, no extra charges, on time for both pick-up and delivery with phone calls in between just checking to see if we needed anything more.  Not one item was damaged or broken from 60 boxes and 8 rooms of furniture!  The team of packers and drivers were very quick and so very kind!  Hardest working teams I have ever seen in the moving business!!

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, Michigan Relocation Company) 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, Michigan Relocation 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.
