Verified Review
It is very important to us that we let you know how satisfied we were with our move from Monroe, Michigan to Las Vegas, Nevada.  Your employee, Jessie, handled the moving from pick-up to delivery flawlessly!  He was a gentleman the entire time.  From the loading thru the unloading, he could not have been more professional.  He worked without breaks and did a couple of extra things for us that was above and beyond our expectations!  We would recommend Rose Moving and Storage to anyone moving any distance from locally to nationally!  Thanks for everything!
