Our last winner for taking a picture of our moving trucks is from South Lyon Michigan, though she saw our truck moving in Westland. We want to thank Sandy from South Lyon and the great city’s near her like New Hudson. We have been moving people all around the area of our Great Lakes. Last week we were in Commerce Twp. Michigan moving a customer to New Hudson (Lyon Twp). When you don’t live or work in the not so far cities that surround you here in Michigan you don’t always realize what this great state has to offer. While we were in New Hudson our customers were telling us how great their realtor was and what they are excited for around their new home. Just a bit away from the city with lots of trees and golf greens, that’s what they are looking forward to.
Whether you like city life like Royal Oak, Ann Arbor, Downtown Detroit, or prefer small towns like Milford, Commerce, South Lyon or Plymouth Michigan.
