Perfect move
My experience with Rose moving/Allied was easily the best move i have had out of 5 moves.  My salesman, Jim S.  was professional and very knowlagable about every aspect of my move.  The crew that moved my belongings were also great.  They wrapped all my furniture, protected my floors and walls at both homes.  Not a scratch on anything.  The office at Rose was great anytime I need anything.  If I move again it will be with Rose/Allied. And to top it off, my price reduced about 200.00.

History

The boundaries of Lenawee (Lenawee, MI Moving Company) were laid out by a proclamation of the Territorial Governor, Lewis Cass on September 10, 1822. Lenawee remained attached to Monroe County, out of which it was formed, until an act of the Territorial Legislature passed on December 26, 1826, organized the county government. The first settlement in the county was made two years earlier, on May 21, 1824, in Tecumseh. The settlers, consisting of fifteen men, eleven women, and six children, all came from Jefferson County, New York. In 1823, Musgrove Evans had located the land and persuaded General Joseph W. Brown and the others to move to the site. Brown and Evans, along with Austin Eli Wing purchased land there and platted the village of Tecumseh in 1824. These founders appealed to Governor Cass to locate the county seat of Lenawee at Tecumseh. This was accomplished by an act of the Territorial Legislature on June 30, 1824, even though county government would not be organized for another year and a half. Tecumseh would remain the county seat until 1838, when it was transferred to Adrian. The Township of Tecumseh was organized on April 12, 1837, initially encompassing the entire northern third of the county.
