My family had a wonderful experience with Rose Moving.
We compared 4 other companies and they were the easiest estimate to schedule and offered the best product.  All the employees, from the office personnel to the guy giving the estimate to the guys packing, loading and unloading us were professional, courteous and personable.  They took measures to protect everything including the stairwell at our new house.  NOTHING was damaged.  We have NO reservations about recommending Rose Moving to anyone we know.

My move with Rose moving was the best…
My move with Rose moving was the best move i have had. Having moved twice before with North American and Bekins, there was no comparison. My salesman, Jim Stafford was professional and very knowlagable. He came back to home twice to make sure we had an accurate quote. He was very patient with my long list of questions. They were not the cheapest mover by far but, I have learned the hard way, that you get what you pay for in this industry. Steve K(the driver) and his guys protected my home like it was their own. My furniture was wrapped before it left my house. Not a scratch on anything. To top it off Rose sent in a cleaning crew after the loading process. The office at Rose was great with any questions that I had. If I move from Chicago it will be with Rose Moving. They are true professionals. Thank again Rose, I will refer you to anyone I know moving!!!!!!

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!
