Great team! I would definitely use Rose Moving again in the future.
I used Rose moving 22-27 April 2013 to relocate from MI to SC.  The company worked with me and my situation.  We had household goods in a condo and a storage unit.  Everything went great and everyone was on time.  They accommodated extra requests.  The driver and his team were great to work with, friendly and professional.  The guys worked very hard packing and unloading.  Mr. Stafford was also great to work with, professional and true to his word.  Would definitely use them in the future.

Wixom (Get Move Estimate for Wixom, MI) is a city in Oakland (Oakland, MI Relocation) in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 13,498 at the 2010 census. The city was home to the former Wixom Assembly Plant, which produced the Lincoln LS, the Ford Thunderbird, the Ford GT, and the Lincoln Town Car. The plant closed its doors on May 31, 2007.

Wixom (Get Move Prices for Wixom, MI) is home to several production and manufacturing businesses, including Trijicon, a leading manufacturer of night gun sights and night telescopic sights; Discraft, a leading manufacturer of flying discs for disc sports games like Ultimate; the U.S. headquarters of spark plug manufacturer NGK, and MAC Valves, Inc., a manufacturer of pneumatic valves used in the automotive and packaging industries.

History

The settlement of Wixom dates back to the 1830s. The establishment of Wixom as a place started in the early 1870s when the Holly, Wayne and Monroe Railroad was constructed through the area. Willard Wixom platted land on either side of the railroad near the Novi and Commerce (Commerce, Michigan Relocation Company) border. The construction of a railroad depot and the naming of the area as Wixom fixed Wixom as a destination.

The village of Wixom was incorporated in the 1950s following the announcement of plans to construct the Wixom Assembly Plant in Novi Township. Prior to that time, Wixom was an unincorporated place. The village borders included portions of both Novi and Commerce (Commerce, Michigan Moving)s. Efforts by the remainder of Novi Township to incorporate as a village prompted the newly established village of Wixom to incorporate as a city. The city largely follows the borders of the village although a small area of parkland on the north side of the city was annexed from Commerce (Commerce, MI Relocation Company) in the 1970s.

On November 13, 1996, Gerald Atkins "shot his way" (according to eyewitness reports) into the Ford Wixom (Get Moves Quote for Wixom, MI) Assembly Plant plant with a CAR-15 semi-automatic rifle, eventually killing plant manufacturing manager Darrell Izzard (aged 57) in a hallway; the shooter wounded three others. Fleeing the plant, Atkins hid in storm drain tunnels while law enforcement surrounded the plant and trained their weapons from as far away as the Interstate 96 freeway. Hours later he surrendered.

Downtown development

The downtown area of the city is being developed with a new main street area on Pontiac (Pontiac, MI Moving Reviews) Trail by the city offices called the Wixom Village Center. The Village Center includes a pedestrian plaza, restaurants, and service shops. The residential development called Tribute of Wixom will contain 600 units that include ranch-style condos, town houses, and single-family homes. The $200 million project was expected to be completed in six years.

Schools

Most of Wixom is part of Walled Lake (Walled Lake, MI Mover Reviews) Consolidated Schools. A small area of commercial property on the city's southern border lies within the Novi Community Schools district, while the extreme southwest portion of the city is within the South Lyon Community School District.

Schools located in the city limits include Loon Lake Elementary School, Wixom (Get Moves Cost for Wixom, MI) Elementary School, and Sarah Banks Middle School. The district's Twin Sun Preschool is also in Wixom (Get Movers Estimate for Wixom, MI).

Walled Lake (Walled Lake, Michigan Moving Companies) district elementary schools serving Wixom include Loon Lake, Wixom, Hickory Woods, and Walled Lake (Walled Lake, MI Moving Reviews). Most of Wixom is zoned to Banks Middle School, with a small part zoned to Geisler Middle School. Most residents are zoned to Walled Lake (Walled Lake, MI Moving Companies) Western High School. Some parts of the city are zoned to Walled Lake (Walled Lake, MI Moving Reviews) Central High School.

The portion in South Lyon (South Lyon, Michigan Moving Reviews) is zoned to Dolsen Elementary School, Centennial Middle School, and South Lyon (South Lyon, MI Moving) East High School.

Media

The studios of WTVS (Detroit (Detroit, MI Movers) Public Television) are located in the Riley Broadcast Center and HD Studios.

Police and fire

The police station is located in the newly developing downtown area on Pontiac Trail. The Wixom Police Department was formed in 1958. Prior to 1958, Wixom received police services from the Oakland (Oakland, Michigan Moving Companies) Sheriff's Department.

Wixom is protected by Fire Station #1 on North Wixom Road and Fire Station #2 located at 50430 Pontiac (Pontiac, Michigan Moving Reviews) Trail. The Wixom Fire Department is primarily staffed with paid on-call firefighters in addition to a full-time fire chief and several part-time firefighters.

In 1996, two Wixom police officers, Gary Hamlin and Martin (Martin, MI Moving) Harp, undertook the dangerous task of apprehending and arresting Gerald Atkins (the above-mentioned Ford plant killer) as he sought refuge in a large storm drain. For their bravery and heroism they received awards and commendations, including official thanks in the form of resolutions passed by the state legislature and the National Association of Police Organizations TOP COPS award, which was given during a ceremony at the White House, conducted by president Bill Clinton.
