Two teams, two shipments, 2,000 miles and a great experience. Your first choice in moving!
Moving can be a real pain, and and when my moving company told me they could not do the move, I was in a panic. My house closing was coming up very quickly and I needed to be out of my house.  Add on top of that I was retiring at the same time and moving to Texas, well the stress level was high.  In the matter of three days, seven companies told me they could not do the move.  Until I talked to Erica at Rose moving.  She listened to my story, called her boss, and told me she could meet the next day to get everything set for the move the day I needed it.  In the span of three hours, all the paperwork was complete, inventoried the entire house, locked in the movers and was able to work within my schedule. Beverly Thomason in the office sent me all the paperwork I needed the next day, was signed and returned.  On the day of the move, the team came in and were very pleasant and professional.  Every specialty item, heirloom, breakable glassware and framed paintings and memorabilia was cared for as if it was their own. Within three hours,, everything was loaded on the truck and sent to the warehouse for storage and crating.  Through the two weeks it sat in storage, Beverly kept me up to date with shipment to my new address.  On the day the shipment came, the delivery team took extra special care in preparing the house to move items inside.  This team was great! The entire process from when they arrived until they departed was about two hours.  They were very professional and worked through a couple of changes in where items were to go.  Everything arrived it perfect condition. They were kind and courteous and went out of their way to make sure that everything I needed done was done.  Although a long review, Rose Moving went out of their way at the last minute to take care of my move.  Two teams, two trucks, two really great move specialists, two thousand miles of travel and the best, most professional move I've ever had. Instead of shopping around, make Rose your first choice in preparing your move.

#movemadeeasy   Summed up in a tweet.  From beginning to end -excellent
From the moment we called and talked to Rose Moving they were professional and obviously knew what would be needed to made this "winter" move easier on us.  Communication up to and after the move was excellent.  The movers themselves knew how to make sure nothing was broken and arrived exactly on schedule.  They moved our baby grand piano and did an unbelievable job!  We felt like we had made new friends that cared about our move as much as we did by the time it ended.  Thanks for everything!

Highly recommend using Rose Moving and Storage.
The whole "pack and load"  aspect went smoothly.  Jim Stafford was great at estimating, courteous and quick.  The crew of 4 arrived on time and were very pleasant.  Foreman Mark communicated well, was professional and kept a fast pace.  I was amazed at their speed.  Each item was wrapped well and they would always ask if they had specific item questions.  Mark even let my 3 year old pretend to drive the "big truck", which he loved. This move out was quick and I would highly recommend this team.
