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.
