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.

I highly recommend them for your move.
I moved household items with Rose Moving and storage twice before.  They moved items from Michigan to Phoenix and then back again 5 years later.  There was not even a hint of any "event".  No breakage, no lost items, no nothing.  A  perfectly uneventful move, just the way they should be.

In August, 2010 I contacted Rose Moving (Jim Stafford) regarding a move from Auburn Hills, Michigan to Las Vegas, Nevada.  You see, I used a competitor to move me out of my home in Rochester, MI into storage.  I was not happy with Corrigan as they quoted 17,000lbs and ended up 23,000lbs & they broke a chandelier and then denied the repair claim.

I contacted Jim and he was incredibly informative and low key with me.  He explained all I needed to know in order to feel comfortable about moving my goods out of a competitors storage facility.  He took the time to follow up with me numerous times over the 7 months of being in storage and to "teach" me some of the ins and outs of moving and storage.

Come time to actually do the move, Jim provided me a firm quote to move me to LV that was less expensive, would assign a "master mover" to my move, and would personally oversee the unpack and load of my belongings out of a competitors storage.  Really, who could do more?  Have you ever heard of a mover providing a FIRM, not to exceed quote?

At the last moment, due to our inability to return to Michigan to supervise the unload from storage and load to Allied truck (a requirement of Corrigan Moving), we were unable to use Jim and Rose Moving.

I  highly recommend them for your move.   It was a mistake for me to get involved with a moving company other than Jim Stafford and Rose Moving and Storage.

Political history

Statue commemorating Harriet Tubman in Ypsilanti (Get Move Prices for Ypsilanti, MI), Michigan.

In the early 1970s, along with neighboring city of Ann Arbor (Ann Arbor, MI Moving Company), the citizens reduced the penalty for the use and sale of marijuana to $5 (the Ypsilanti Marijuana Initiative; see also the Human Rights Party). When Ypsilanti prosecuted a man possessing 100 pounds of cannabis under state law, the defense argued he should have been charged under Ypsilanti's ordinance. The trial judge declared the ordinance's requirement that Ypsilanti prosecute only under city law unenforceable. An appeal court upheld the trial judge's ruling. Later, Ypsilanti City Council, using its power of codification, deleted the ordinance.

In 1979, Faz Husain was elected to the Ypsilanti (Get Relocation Quote for Ypsilanti, MI) city council, the first Muslim and the first native of India to win elected office in Michigan.

Nicknames

Ypsilanti (Get Move Prices for Ypsilanti, MI) is often shortened to "Ypsi," particularly in spoken conversation and local/regional usage.

Because a large number of residents or their ancestors migrated from Appalachia, certain neighborhoods (particularly on the far east side of the city and into Ypsilanti (Get Moves Prices for Ypsilanti, MI) Township) are sometimes called "Ypsitucky." Harriette Arnow's book The Dollmaker, which was made into a film starring Jane Fonda, focused on the lives of these "Ypsituckians."

Recently, the use of the term "Ypsitucky" has come under increased scrutiny due to its historically derogatory connotation. In 2008, the issue was raised after a dinner being held in Ann Arbor (Ann Arbor, Michigan Mover Reviews) to honor Harriette Arnow was described as an "Ypsitucky Supper" in some of the event organizer's media releases. In 2009, planning began for the "Ypsitucky Jamboree," a new music festival celebrating bluegrass music to be held in Ypsilanti in September 2009; this resulted in objections from some area residents and some members of the City Council, leading to renaming the event as simply "The Jamboree."
