Professional and courteous!
We have used Rose Moving twice now. Once to move our entire home across country, and then a second time to move the rest of our items from storage. Both experiences were great. Jim was friendly and helpful in quoting the jobs and always answered any questions promptly. The movers handling the jobs were all professional and courteous and they took great care with all of our property. I would definitely recommend Rose Moving!

Excellent experience
They showed up on time for the packing and delivery.  Everything arrived in excellent condition.  The furniture was placed exactly where we wanted, as were the boxes to be unpacked by us.  Beverly was wonderful about keeping us informed.  Dave and his helpers did a fantastic job.

Excellent
I called several moving companies to move my moms furniture from her condo in Allen Park over to Maple Heights Retirement Community in Allen Park. Rose is the preferred moving company for Maple Heights. They were a little more expensive than other companies but I felt more comfortable with Rose after talking with Jim. The guys arrived at the scheduled start time and completed the job in 3 hours. Both workers were outstanding. They went over the top to please us. I would highly recommend this company for any moving needs.

Trenton (Get Moves Estimate for Trenton, MI) is a small city in Wayne (Wayne, MI Relocation Companies) in the southeast portion of the U.S. state of Michigan. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 18,853. The city is part of Downriver, a collection of mostly blue-collar communities south of Detroit on the west bank of the Detroit River.

Many residents are employed in the city's factories such as the Chrysler Trenton (Get Moves Prices for Trenton, MI) Engine Plant, Solutia, and the Trenton (Get Moves Cost for Trenton, MI) Channel Power Plant. Oakwood South Shore Hospital (formerly known as Seaway Hospital) is located within city limits and has 203 beds. The former McLouth Steel plant is also located in the city. There is rail service in the city. The city operates the 21,000-square-foot (2,000 m2) Trenton (Get Move Prices for Trenton, MI) Veterans Memorial Library and a historical museum. Trenton (Get Relocation Quote for Trenton, MI) has 15 churches of 10 denominations.

The Battle of Monguagon took place in Trenton on what is now the site of Elizabeth Park, which is part of the Wayne (Wayne, MI Relocation Company) park system and is the first county park in Michigan, designated in 1919.

History

The founder of Trenton is considered to be Abram Caleb Truax, a member of the territorial militia in attendance when General William Hull surrendered Detroit (Detroit, MI Moving Company) to the British General Isaac Brock early in the War of 1812. After the war, in 1816, Truax acquired a large tract of land in the Michigan Territory along the Detroit (Detroit, Michigan Relocation Company) River from the U.S. government and constructed a sawmill, church and store in what is today downtown Trenton. When Territorial Governor Lewis Cass organized Monguagon Township in 1827, Truax became the first Township Supervisor. He laid out the village of Truaxton in 1834. A post office had been established there named "Monguago" in 1828 with Truax as the first postmaster. The post office name was changed to "Truago" in 1837, and to "Trenton (Get Relocation Quote for Trenton, MI)" in 1847, after a type of limestone mined from a local quarry. The village was platted and recorded under the name Trenton (Get Move Prices for Trenton, MI) in 1850 by Abram's son and daughter George Brigham Truax and Sophia Slocum, the wife of industrialist Giles Slocum. The Slocum family estate was given to the county, becoming what is known as Elizabeth Park, named after Elizabeth Slocum.

In 1834 an industrialist, Giles Bryan Slocum, constructed a dock, making Trenton a major hub of steamboat traffic. In 1846, Capt. Arthur Edwards founded the Detroit (Detroit, MI Moving Reviews) & Cleveland Steamboat Company in Trenton. Through the late 1880s Trenton, like several Downriver communities, was known for its extensive shipyards. Sibley, Michigan would not be incorporated into Trenton (Get Moving Quote for Trenton, MI) until 1929.

Trenton (Get Movers Prices for Trenton, MI) was incorporated as a village in 1855.

A Detroit (Detroit, Michigan Relocation) businessman and later Michigan's first U.S. attorney, Solomon Sibley, started a limestone quarry near Trenton, near what is today Fort Street and Sibley Road. Materials from the quarry were used to construct structures in Detroit (Detroit, MI Relocation Company), most notably Fort Detroit (Detroit, Michigan Relocation Companies) along the Detroit (Detroit, Michigan Moving) River. The quarry was later sold to Austin Church, who used limestone to make baking soda, which he sold under his family's nameplate, Arm & Hammer. In 1900 the quarry was the site of the Sibley Quarry explosion.

Through the late 1880s and even early 1900s, Trenton prospered because it was roughly a day's journey between Detroit (Detroit, Michigan Mover Reviews) and Monroe, Michigan, which meant people traveling between the two cities would have to stop overnight in Trenton.

Trenton annexed the village of Sibley (along the modern Riverview border) in 1929, extending the city's northern boundary to modern-day Sibley Road. Trenton was incorporated as a city in 1957. In 1920 a small light railroad ran along West Jefferson to Wyandotte (Wyandotte, Michigan Mover Reviews). The rail services ended in 1934. The tracks were removed in 1942 for the war effort.
