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.

Great team! I would definitely use Rose Moving again in the future.
I used Rose moving 22-27 April 2013 to relocate from MI to SC.  The company worked with me and my situation.  We had household goods in a condo and a storage unit.  Everything went great and everyone was on time.  They accommodated extra requests.  The driver and his team were great to work with, friendly and professional.  The guys worked very hard packing and unloading.  Mr. Stafford was also great to work with, professional and true to his word.  Would definitely use them in the future.

You will NOT be disappointed!
I recently worked with Rose Moving and Storage via the Allied Van Lines network.  Jim Stafford was my estimator for a move from MI to TX and he was thorough courteous and professional.  Even though I chose the price guarantee, his estimate was very close to actual and I had no hidden fees or charges throughout the move. Judy, my move coordinator was also very helpful and kept the lines of communication constantly open for any questions I had.

The real gem in the whole transaction, however, was the driver.  Tom moved my entire house from MI to TX and he was INCREDIBLE!  He was very friendly, efficient and punctual, showing up EARLY for both the loading and unloading.  I had over 100 boxes and a lot of very large/heavy furniture that had to make the move to an apartment AND storage unit in TX.  Not only was he able to get to TX and deliver things earlier than originally estimated (YAY!) but EVERYTHING survived the move with ZERO damage.  If you've ever moved across the country, you should know how rare this is.  Tom called me multiple times to provide updates on his progress and made sure I was comfortable with the move every step of the way.  I would highly recommend Rose to anyone who is looking to move a long distance.  Request Tom as your driver if he is available -- you will not be disappointed!
