#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.

Rose is the best moving company.
I hired Rose Moving & Storage (Allied Van Lines) for the second time for an out-of-state move. To keep costs down, I packed my own boxes, which they moved with great care. I also have antique furniture, some pieces of which require special handling. The movers listened to my concerns and went over the details of how they would package the antiques before proceeding. The team was courteous, friendly and unobtrusive. As a single woman, I felt very comfortable with them in my house for extended periods of time. Everything with the move was on-time and on-schedule, and the entire team, from the sales person to all of the people in the office, to the crew themselves, were highly professional. Also, there was absolutely no damage to my furniture or possessions.
