My move couldn't have gone smoother.
You want your stuff moved quickly, efficiently and safely?  Better contact Allied.  They gave me all the boxes, paper and wardrobes I needed to move 1400 miles from Michigan to Florida. Movers (Brian and Glenn) showed up on time and did all the work.  They gave me a date for delivery and I drove to my new location.  Everything arrived on the day promised and they loaded it all into a storage unit so I just pick up a few boxes a day. They also set up the king size bed and moved all the furniture to the exact location I wanted. Erica and Beverly always kept me informed as to my move status. Movers were a crew of two.  Never saw anybody work that hard on both ends of the move. Thought about using those giant pods until I found out the cost AND that I would have to load and unload it. Couldn't be happier with the move and I won't miss the snow.

You will NOT be disappointed!
I recently worked with Rose Moving and Storage via the Allied Van Lines network.  Jim Stafford was my estimator for a move from MI to TX and he was thorough courteous and professional.  Even though I chose the price guarantee, his estimate was very close to actual and I had no hidden fees or charges throughout the move. Judy, my move coordinator was also very helpful and kept the lines of communication constantly open for any questions I had.

The real gem in the whole transaction, however, was the driver.  Tom moved my entire house from MI to TX and he was INCREDIBLE!  He was very friendly, efficient and punctual, showing up EARLY for both the loading and unloading.  I had over 100 boxes and a lot of very large/heavy furniture that had to make the move to an apartment AND storage unit in TX.  Not only was he able to get to TX and deliver things earlier than originally estimated (YAY!) but EVERYTHING survived the move with ZERO damage.  If you've ever moved across the country, you should know how rare this is.  Tom called me multiple times to provide updates on his progress and made sure I was comfortable with the move every step of the way.  I would highly recommend Rose to anyone who is looking to move a long distance.  Request Tom as your driver if he is available -- you will not be disappointed!

A public beach in St. Clair Shores (Get Move Estimate for St. Clair Shores, MI)

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 14.28 square miles (36.99 km2), of which, 11.62 square miles (30.10 km2) is land and 2.66 square miles (6.89 km2) is water. A notable feature of St. Clair Shores (Get Relocation Prices for St. Clair Shores, MI) is its 14 miles (23 km) of canals. Most of these canals are found in the Nautical Mile, which is along Jefferson between 9 and 10 mile.

History and culture

The area was inhabited by French settlers as early as 1710, at which time it was called L'anse (L'anse, Michigan Relocation) Creuse. (L'anse Creuse was also the name of a stop on the now-defunct interurban railroad off of Jefferson Ave near Nine Mile Road, and the name lives on today in the L'Anse Creuse Public Schools in central Macomb (Macomb, MI Moving Companies), MI and L'Anse Creuse High School in Harrison Twp.)

From 1843 until 1911, St. Clair Shores was a part of Erin Township, parts of which make up today's Eastpointe, the Grosse Pointes and St. Clair Shores. In 1911, the township's name changed to Lake Township. Lake Township existed until 2009, when residents of the village of Grosse Pointe Shores (Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan Mover Reviews) (that portion of Grosse Pointe Shores (Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan Mover Reviews) in Macomb County located within Lake Township) voted to incorporate as a city.

A community called Eagle (Eagle, MI Movers) Pointe was established along the part of the lakeshore in 1916.

The city once was home to an amusement park named Jefferson Beach. Built in 1927, it featured the longest roller coaster in the United States. In 1955, a fire destroyed several buildings in the park. While Jefferson Beach attempted to rebuild, its owners slowly converted the park to a marina. In 1959, the remaining amusement park buildings were destroyed to make room for the marina.

With help from its location along the shores of Lake Saint Clair, St. Clair Shores (Get Moves Prices for St. Clair Shores, MI) grew from a resort community to a suburban city rapidly after World War II. Prior to the city's incorporation in 1951, St. Clair Shores (Get Movers Cost for St. Clair Shores, MI) was recognized as the largest village in the United States.

The tallest building in St. Clair Shores (Get Move Quote for St. Clair Shores, MI) is the 28-story Shore Club Highrise, known locally as "9 Mile Tower", located on Nine Mile Road and Jefferson Avenue near Lake Saint Clair.

Each year, St. Clair Shores (Get Moving Prices for St. Clair Shores, MI) hosts a popular Memorial Day Parade, which includes many of the local sports teams and marching bands. The city is also known for its "Nautical Mile" - a strip of Jefferson Avenue between Nine Mile and 10 Mile roads featuring many retail establishments, restaurants, boat dealers, and marinas. One notable restaurant is the very popular Fishbones, which has three locations in the metro Detroit area, one being at 9 Mile and Jefferson Ave. on the "Nautical Mile".

St. Clair Shores (Get Moving Cost for St. Clair Shores, MI) is home to one of the longest running local pageants as a member of the Miss America Organization. The Miss St. Clair Shores (Get Moves Quote for St. Clair Shores, MI) program offers scholarships to young women in the community ages 17–24. The pageant itself is held in July at the local South Lake High School, located near 9 mile and Mack Ave. Miss St. Clair Shores (Get Relocation Estimate for St. Clair Shores, MI) volunteers and serves her city during her preparation to compete at the Miss Michigan Pageant.

The city is also known for its connection to Detroit (Detroit, Michigan Mover Reviews)'s musical history. Notable locations include the now closed Car City Records, which was located on Harper between 8 and 9 Mile roads (whose employees have included many from the Detroit (Detroit, MI Relocation Companies) music scene) and the Crows Nest East, a popular music venue in the 1960s which was located on Harper and 13 Mile Road.

St. Clair Shores (Get Movers Estimate for St. Clair Shores, MI) is also well known for its hockey association, with more state championships than any other rink in the entire state. High school hockey during the 1970s dominated the competition; one team from Lakeview even went undefeated in 1973, and won the championship. There are still signs and vintage Hockeytown bumper stickers hanging inside the arena.

Naming

Being situated on the western shores of Lake Saint Clair (Saint Clair, Michigan Moving Company), the city's name is taken from the lake. An expedition led by the French explorer René Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle named it Lac Sainte-Claire, because they entered the lake on August 12, 1679, the feast day of Saint Clare of Assisi. The lake is named on English maps as early as 1710 as Saint Clare. But as early as the Mitchell Map in 1755, the spelling is presented with the current spelling as St. Clair. The name is sometimes attributed as honoring the American Revolutionary War General and Governor of the Northwest Territory Arthur St. Clair, but the name was in use with the current spelling long before St. Clair was a notable figure. However it is possible that earlier name of the lake was conflated with that of the general in naming some of the political entities near the lake and the river, such as St. Clair (St. Clair, Michigan Relocation Company) St. Clair Township, and the cities of St. Clair and St. Clair Shores.

The origin of the name has also been confused with that Patrick Sinclair, a British officer who purchased land on the St. Clair (St. Clair, Michigan Moving Reviews) River at the outlet of the Pine River. There, in 1764, he built Fort Sinclair, which was in use for nearly twenty years before being abandoned.
