Great Experience
We moved from Michigan to Colorado and the experience was nothing short of great! The crew who loaded our stuff to put into storage was extremely professional. The team lead even saw the stress in my face and put me at ease by saying, "Don't worry, this is easy! It'll be great!" That really helped! The crew who unloaded our stuff in Colorado was top notch as well. Very friendly and professional. Jim and Beverly were both very responsive and great to work with. I would definitely recommend Rose!

Wayne (Get Move Estimate for Wayne, MI) is the most populous county in the U.S. state of Michigan. As of the 2010 census, its population was 1,820,584, making it the 18th most-populous county in the United States. The county seat is Detroit (Detroit, MI Relocation Company), the largest city in Michigan.


According to the 2000 census, the county has a total area of 672.20 square miles (1,741.0 km2), of which 614.15 square miles (1,590.6 km2) (or 91.36%) is land and 58.05 square miles (150.3 km2) (or 8.64%) is water (including parts of the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair (St. Clair, MI Moving Company)).

Wayne County borders on Oakland County and Macomb County to the north, Washtenaw (Washtenaw, MI Movers) to the west, Essex County to the east (Ontario) and Monroe County to the south.

The eastern (and sometimes southern) boundary is a water boundary in the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair with Essex County, Ontario, Canada. Automotive traffic crosses this boundary at the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel and the Ambassador Bridge. Due to the change in direction of the river, this portion of Ontario actually lies south of Wayne (Get Movers Quote for Wayne, MI). Due to the direction ambiguity, the southern communities of the county are usually referred to as "Downriver".

Grosse Ile is the largest island in Wayne (Get Move Quote for Wayne, MI) and is connected to the mainland by the Wayne (Get Moves Quote for Wayne, MI) Bridge and the Grosse Ile Toll Bridge.

"Mad Anthony" Wayne (Wayne, Michigan Moving Reviews)

Wayne (Get Relocation Quote for Wayne, MI) was one of the first counties formed when the Northwest Territory was organized. It was named for the American general "Mad Anthony" Wayne. It originally encompassed the entire area of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan, as well as small sections that are now part of northern Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. By proclamation of the Territorial Secretary and Acting Governor, Winthrop Sargent, on August 15, 1796, the boundaries of Wayne (Get Movers Estimate for Wayne, MI) were declared to begin at the mouth of the Cuyahoga River then west to Fort Wayne, then to the southernmost point of Lake Michigan and along the western shore north to the territorial boundary in Lake Superior and then along the territorial boundary through Lake Huron, Lake St. Clair, and Lake Erie back to the starting point.

On January 14, 1803, the Governor of Indiana Territory, William Henry Harrison (Harrison, Michigan Moving Companies), issued a similar proclamation defining the boundaries as beginning at a point where an east and west line passing through the southernmost extreme of Lake Michigan would intersect a north and south line, passing through the westernmost extreme of the lake, then north to the territorial boundary, then along said boundary line to a point where an east and west line passing through the southerly extreme of Lake Michigan would intersect the same, then along this last mentioned line to the place of beginning. This boundary would include Chicago, Illinois and a sizable strip of Wisconsin along Lake Michigan.

These boundaries would be adjusted as Indiana and Illinois became states and as other counties were formed within Michigan Territory.
