"Perfect" is the word to describe our experience with Rose Moving & Storage. Everything was perfect. The team of six movers, led by Mark McLean arrived right on time, and after sizing up the job went right to work. The team worked together, packing and loading everything in one day. Delivery was accomplished the following day. All of our possessions were delivered in the same condition they were in prior to Rose handling/moving them. Not only that, but these pros made sure to leave your old home and your new home in the same condition they found them in. It rained on day one and yet nobody from the Rose staff trailed any water or dirt into the old house.
Efficient, honest, friendly and professional. That is what you can expect from Rose Moving & Storage. And this description extends to not only the Rose employees who handle your property but the behind-the-scene staff as well. Mike Engelhardt, Beverly and the rest of the Rose staff all carried themselves in a most professional manner.
This isn't the first time we hired Rose Moving & Storage. Approx. eight years ago, Rose moved out daughter from Michigan to the east coast. Bottom line, they were perfect then, too.
I love Rose Moving, I really do. I have complete trust in this company and every one of their employees. Two moves spanning eight years, and nothing but perfection to report.

I highly recommend them for your move.
I moved household items with Rose Moving and storage twice before.  They moved items from Michigan to Phoenix and then back again 5 years later.  There was not even a hint of any "event".  No breakage, no lost items, no nothing.  A  perfectly uneventful move, just the way they should be.

In August, 2010 I contacted Rose Moving (Jim Stafford) regarding a move from Auburn Hills, Michigan to Las Vegas, Nevada.  You see, I used a competitor to move me out of my home in Rochester, MI into storage.  I was not happy with Corrigan as they quoted 17,000lbs and ended up 23,000lbs & they broke a chandelier and then denied the repair claim.

I contacted Jim and he was incredibly informative and low key with me.  He explained all I needed to know in order to feel comfortable about moving my goods out of a competitors storage facility.  He took the time to follow up with me numerous times over the 7 months of being in storage and to "teach" me some of the ins and outs of moving and storage.

Come time to actually do the move, Jim provided me a firm quote to move me to LV that was less expensive, would assign a "master mover" to my move, and would personally oversee the unpack and load of my belongings out of a competitors storage.  Really, who could do more?  Have you ever heard of a mover providing a FIRM, not to exceed quote?

At the last moment, due to our inability to return to Michigan to supervise the unload from storage and load to Allied truck (a requirement of Corrigan Moving), we were unable to use Jim and Rose Moving.

I  highly recommend them for your move.   It was a mistake for me to get involved with a moving company other than Jim Stafford and Rose Moving and Storage.
